First, you'll be riding through stunning Elaphiti Channel and in about 40 minutes, you'll reach sandy beach Šunj on the island of Lopud. Šunj is one of the rare sandy beaches on our coast, so this is an opportunity to enjoy in a bit different views than the ones you've seen so far. You'll spend about an hour on Šunj where you can swim, have drinks or just sunbathe in the beautiful enviroment. Your next destination will be island of Šipan (the biggest one from Elaphiti islands). On your way to Šipan, skipper will make a short stop in a hidden bay for snorkeling, swimming, or just taking photos as the views are splendid. You can jump off the speedboat into the crystal clear sea or just enjoy the surroundings from the boat. It's up to your preference. After this short but sweet stop, you'll reach 'Luka Šipanska' which is one out of two inhabited places on the whole island. Here you'll have free time for lunch or drinks in a local beach bar! It's beautiful to walk around and discover the island. Enjoy local life for a while, little bays and traditional boats in the port. There are only about 200 people living on the entire island, so visiting it is this truly unique experience. From Šipan you will continue towards smaller island of Koločep. On your way to Koločep you will stop in Sikirica Bay for swimming. It's hard to locate this bay on the map and that's why it's even more special. You can snorkel there or even use sea scooter! Sikirica has turquoise color of the sea and it makes it even more special to visit! After the break on Sikirica, you'll continue towards Koločep which is nature's oasis, untouched and clean. Less than 150 people live there and during the winter time it's almost empty. Beaches are rocky or pebbly and the color of the sea is incomparable to anything else. On Koločep, you'll visit Blue Cave where you can take some photos as the background is perfect. Here you'll have another opportunity for swimming, sunbathing or snorkeling before your return to Dubrovnik. Besides Elaphiti Islands, there are few hidden bays where skipper also suggests to stop because these bays are definitely worth visiting. They are not easily found on the map which makes it even better. Get ready for a day full of surprisingly beautiful locations on your way to main location!

Kotor: Private Speed Boat Tour to Blue Cave with Swim Time

7. Kotor: Private Speed Boat Tour to Blue Cave with Swim Time

A speedboat ride, wind in your hair, the open sea, beautiful beaches, and exciting places to visit are only a brief description of what's to come. We begin our adventure on a speedboat starting in Kotor and then make our way towards the magnificent islet of Our Lady of the Rocks, just in front of the ancient city of Perast. After a walk around the islet, we travel by the open sea towards the Blue cave and take a quick stop to visit an old submarine base. We then take a stroll around Mamula island, surrounded by walls of an old Austro-Hungarian fortress from the 14 century which was used as a prison in both the First and Second World Wars. The next destination is the Blue cave, an impressive natural landmark with about 300 m2. The cave has two entrances that can be accessed by boats. It got its name because the sunlight refracts at just the right angle so that the water looks like it's shining from below. Dive, bathe in the blue light, and enjoy the warm and crystal clear water. For real experience of the cave, we recommend swimming from the boat and using snorkeling masks to explore the world beneath the surface of the water. For unsecure swimmers, we will provide life jackets.
