Get ready for a sailing experience that goes beyond the postcards. Departing from Dubrovnik and sailing the Dubrovnik islands, our multi-day journey offers a genuine taste of the Adriatic Sea. We’ll navigate through lesser-known gems like the Elaphiti Islands, Mljet, and the Peljesac Peninsula. Our goal is simple: show you the real Croatia. Forget the tourist traps; we’ll guide you to secluded spots and charming villages that rarely make it onto the usual itineraries. The Elaphiti Islands, with their unspoiled beauty and authentic character, take center stage. Immerse yourself in the islands’ natural wonders, far from the typical tourist hotspots.

In our quest for authenticity, we guide you to the heart of local culture through culinary experiences that leave an indelible mark on your senses. Our journey takes you to hidden gastronomic treasures, where you’ll savor the rich flavors of traditional Croatian cuisine while supporting local businesses.

What sets us apart is our knowledge of when to visit each place. After years of navigating these waters, our skippers know how to avoid the crowds, ensuring you get an authentic experience. Whether it’s the tranquility of the Elaphiti Islands or the rugged charm of Peljesac, every stop is chosen to give you a real sense of the place.

This Dubrovnik islands sailing trip departs on Fridays and Saturdays, and includes four nights on the boat.

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.

Sailing Dubrovnik to Lopud Island

Your sailing adventure begins at our Komolac base in Dubrovnik at 2:00 PM. As we set sail, take in the coastal sights of Dubrovnik, guided by our experienced skipper. Arrive at Lopud Island in the Elaphiti archipelago, known for its peaceful, car-free village. While still subtly touched by the popularity of the Dubrovnik area, Lopud provides a taste of both worlds, standing like a gateway between civilization and the untouched nature of the other Elaphiti Islands. Explore the village, wander through the Park Djordjic Mayneri, a hidden gem, discover local artists and enjoy dinner featuring fresh seafood and local Croatian dishes, and consider an evening stroll to sites like the Franciscan Monastery or Sunj Beach. Retire for a quiet night aboard the catamaran, ready for the next day’s journey.

Accommodation: yacht.

Lopud to Mljet – Exploring the Elaphiti-Adjacent Beauty

Departing from Lopud, we leisurely sail towards Mljet, a serene island known for its natural allure. Explore the quiet beaches with crystal clear waters and embrace the simplicity of the lesser-known side of the island. Enjoy an easygoing lunch with authentic Croatian flavors, freshly caught seafood and locally sourced ingredients, highlighting the island’s maritime heritage. For those seeking more, an optional trip to Mljet National Park is available (tickets and transfer not included). As the sun sets over the Adriatic, find a tranquil spot on the catamaran to unwind, reflecting on the day’s unhurried exploration. Retire for the night, carrying the laid-back charm of Mljet with you.

Peljesac Peninsula Exploration

Start the day with a calm sail from Mljet to the Peljesac Peninsula, where you’ll explore the historic town of Ston with its ancient walls and the renowned salt pans—the oldest in Europe. After exploring Ston, continue to the hidden gem of Kobas, a tranquil village nestled in the Peljesac hills, for a leisurely lunch featuring regional specialties. In the late afternoon, we’ll sail back to Sipan Island in the Elaphiti archipelago, a serene haven. Enjoy the evening on Sipan, either taking it easy on the catamaran or exploring the charming village, and catch the breathtaking sunset. Take your time at each swimming stop to paddle around on the conveniently available paddleboards, and if you’re feeling a bit more adventurous, hop on our bicycles to explore the island further.
