This Dubrovnik sailing break is ideal for those who are active and want to see as much of the Dubrovnik area, but have limited time. This short cruise takes you kayaking, paddleboarding, cycling, swimming and snorkeling on four islands. But don’t worry, days are structured so you have enough time to unwind and relax.
Your home for this adventure will be a comfortable sailing catamaran that easily accommodates 10 persons. It is big enough for everyone to have their own space without feeling cramped.
We will visit islands of the Elaphiti Archipelago: 13 islands stretching west from Dubrovnik. Only three of those islands have people living on them year round: Lopud, Kolocep and Sipan, and Kolocep and Lopud are completely car free. You will also discover a national park situated on the island of Mljet – you will cycle around two salt water lakes and visit the islet with the monastery in one of those lakes. Finally, we visit the Peljesac peninsula, home of some of the best Croatian wines, and a place to enjoy the freshest oysters and mussels.
Our experienced local guides and skippers will avoid overcrowded destinations ensuring you get the most authentic short cruise experience. You will have the opportunity to dine with local families in their homes and enjoy good food and excellent wine. Friendly dolphins or tuna in the area often escort our yachts. The sea is blue, clear, warm and friendly.
This trip departs every day of the week and includes three nights on the boat. Families with children aged 6 and up are welcome on family departures.
You can easily combine this short cruise with our other short experiences all over Croatia.
