Let’s explore this stunning archipelago just off the coast of Dubrovnik — a favourite getaway for locals! With pristine waters perfect for snorkelling and centuries of history worth exploring, the Elaphiti Islands are an idyllic day trip on a Dubrovnik holiday.
We will visit three of these islands during your tour, with more time to explore and relax during a full-day tour.
You might also love our Dubrovnik sunset boat tour! Spend the waning hours of the day on your own private boat, cruising along the Adriatic, sipping local wine, and basking in the beautiful sunset.
Of course, all our tours are private and fully customizable, so feel free to contact us with any special requests!
The first Elaphite Islands private tour stop is the southernmost inhabited island in Croatia: Koločep. Known locally as Kalamota, this is a pristine evergreen island of pines.
It is the first of three large Elaphiti Islands and the closest to Dubrovnik (0.6 miles away). Alluring pristine blue waters surround this small and tame island. “No cars and no rush” is the life motto of the residents, as you will notice from the minute we arrive.
We will visit one of Koločep’s landmarks, the Blue Cave, which can only be accessed by swimming. We also offer complimentary snorkelling equipment disinfected before and after every tour. Next, we will visit three caves called three sisters or Green caves. Here you can dive under the rocks, discover a hidden room in between, and take underwater pictures with a Go Pro cam. Fun and adventure are guaranteed!
Our next destination is Lopud, an island famous for having one of the best sandy beaches in the Dubrovnik area, called Šunj. Here, you’ll have the opportunity to fully experience a hot, idle summer day on the Adriatic Sea. You could choose to stay on the speed boat and get a tan, enjoy complimentary drinks, or go ashore and explore the island at your leisure.
During our Elaphiti Islands tour, you can freely explore the island at your leisure. We can also enjoy a fun visit to the village to see even more! You can visit the Dominican and Franciscan monastery, Đorđić-Mayneri Park, remarkable small churches, and much more, or enjoy more time on the water and snorkel!
If you wish, we can also make arrangements for a light lunch at one of the restaurants on the islands. The island’s “No cars and no rush” motto applies here, too!
The last island we’ll visit on our private Elaphite Islands tour is Šipan, the largest and most densely populated among the Elafiti islands. With its untouched nature, turquoise blue sea, green olive and pine trees, and birds chirping…it is truly a place of serenity.
Experience the charm of the seaside town of Suđurađ, where history and tradition come together perfectly. Discover the opulence of two magnificent Renaissance palaces, proudly owned by the renowned Skočibuha family – known for their ship-owning empire.
Immerse yourself in the local culture and savor the taste of authentic, homemade products, including delectable wine, rich olive oil, Carob, fresh fruits, and vegetables. Take a sip of the local wine and taste the history in every drop as you savor the unique flavors produced by the dedicated locals.
Enhance your experience by adding wine and olive oil tasting at the local winery. Indulge in a journey of taste as you discover the secrets of Suđurađ’s rich winemaking heritage. Book this tour now and get ready to be swept away by the charm of this stunning location.
On our way back, we will make a short stop to have a swim and snorkel around the pebble beaches of the small islet called Sikirica.
By the end of our day together, we hope you’ll make countless beautiful memories and have plenty of stories to take home with you! We want you to rewind and replay these moments for years to come…always fondly remember your experience with us in Dubrovnik.
