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 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: thirteen 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 except Fridays and includes three nights on the boat. Families with children aged 6 and up are welcome on family departures.

This is a non-smoking holiday, which means we ask our travellers to refrain from smoking in the company of other guests.

You can easily combine this short cruise with our other short experiences all over Croatia.

Peljesac Peninsula paddleboarding, swimming, snorkeling and sightseeing

We spend the morning paddle boarding, swimming and snorkeling in the quiet Zuljana bay before we sail east towards Broce and Ston. The town’s stone walls are 5 km (3 mi) long and were built to protect salt production at a time when salt was an important export product of Dubrovnik Republic. You can walk around the walls that connects Ston and Mali Ston (Little Ston), famous for its oyster farms. Peljesac is also one of the best Croatian wine making regions, famous for its red wines. You will sail by the vineyards perched on the steep southern slopes of the peninsula, and do not miss the chance to try those wines. In the afternoon we return to a quiet bay or, depending on the weather, Luka Sipanska for the night.
