Dubrovnik: Blue Cave, Odysseus Cave & 4 Islands Day Tour

1. Dubrovnik: Blue Cave, Odysseus Cave & 4 Islands Day Tour

Start the day early as your hosts greet you at the Marina Frapa Dubrovnik and take you on a seafaring adventure. Soak up the sun as you ride towards Mljet island and the first stop of the day, the Odysseus Cave. Dive into the pristine blue water uninterrupted by the city crowds. The next stop is at the charming little island Šipan, one of the Elaphiti Islands, small by size but very rich in history. Following Šipan, you will visit the most famous sandy beach in the Dubrovnik area, Sunj, where you can swim, snorkel, relax, and even have lunch in a restaurant by the sea. The journey continues after about two hours when the crew will take you to the Blue Cave of Kolocep Island to take one more dip in the crystal clear blue waters. On the way back to the city, take in the most beautiful panorama of the city walls during sunset.

Meet your English-speaking guide at the Boninovo bus stop in Dubrovnik town for this 3-hour hike.

What people are saying about Elaphiti Islands

This was the highlight of our holiday. Our skipper Nichola knew exactly what we wanted out of our 4 hour afternoon boat trip. This is perfect for those that don’t want the crowds and would like the freedom to move when you are ready. We had our own music, drinks whenever we needed and snorkelling from all the best coves. Thank you so much Maro and Nichola ❤️❤️❤️

Enchanted places where we have been given the right time to savor it. Small group, away from too touristy and full experiences throughout. Very nice, helpful and competent skipper! Experience that I recommend to anyone visiting Dubrovnik and / or surroundings

We really enjoyed this private sailing trip and would recommend it to any family group as well as couples. Seeing the old town at sunset was really something special.

Superb excursion Longest route departing and arriving in a magnificent cave Short stops, jump into the water as soon as the boat stops Beautiful seabed with fish
