Great boat trip, good mix of swimming and hiking. Food was good for the price of the tour. Free Croatian wine was a nice touch, sometimes the guided tour information was difficult to hear.
2. Dubrovnik 3-Hour Sea Kayaking Tour with Snack
This Dubrovnik Sea Kayaking Tour begins with a safety briefing at the park below Pile Gate before you head off with your guide across the channel and around the cursed Island of Lokrum. You’ll make several stops at points of interest along the way. On the 2.5-3 hour tour you’ll be accompanied by a guide that speaks excellent English and is very familiar with the coastline around Dubrovnik. Learn about the curse of the island and the history of Dubrovnik, previously known as Ragusa. Stop at one of the only hotels that was not rebuilt after the war. The hotel was the site of hand-to-hand combat between the Serbian and Montenegrin armies and the Dubrovnik defenders during the war. Spend around 30 minutes at the only beach in Dubrovnik that’s not accessible on foot, and explore a fascinating cave. You can swim, snorkel, explore the cave, relax, eat, or sunbathe.

Great tour with lots of interesting facts about the town. I would surely recommend it! A friend liked it so much, he did the tour twice in two days.
3. From Split and Trogir: 5 Islands and Blue Cave Day Trip
Visit 5 of Croatia’s islands in style with a fun-filled day trip by speedboat. Head on an adventure where you explore caves, swim and snorkel, and discover Dalmatian towns. Choose either Trogir or Split as your starting point. And best of all, choose from either a small-group or private experience. Cruise on a 90-minute speedboat journey to reach your first stop, the Blue Cave. Explore the cave in a small fishing boat as you take in its famous crystal blue waters. Next up is a visit the island of Vis for you to explore the village of Komiža in 1 hour of free time. Discover the traditional Dalmatian fishing village with its narrow streets, pebble beaches, and inviting promenade. Swing by Stiniva Cove next, accessing the cove at the sunniest time of the day for a quick 15-minute dip. Then head to Budikovac Island for your next activity: snorkeling and swimming in the Blue Lagoon....
This experience was fantastic, and would happily do it again. The first stop was the blue cave which was stunning, the initial speedboat ride to get there was long so be prepared, but fun! The next stops were beautiful and we were there just the right amount of time. The blue lagoon was nice, but overrated I think and the beach is pebbled so a bit rough on the feet. We were lucky as we had perfect weather which made the boat ride perfectly fine but I can imagine it could be pretty rough weather dependant. Would definitely recommend this trip and Mario and Elena were fantastic.

Dubrovnik, located on the Adriatic Sea, is a city visitors will not soon forget. It is one of the nation's top tourist destinations, and for good reason. Since the 7th century, Dubrovnik has survived many battles and has a rich heritage. Just off the coast of Dubrovnik, visitors can view or take a ferry to the spectacular Elafiti Islands.
Some prefer to sightsee on bicycles. Biking in Croatia is popular for those who prefer to leisurely explore the countryside. Many visitors find that Korcula is best seen by bike, and the island offers many things to see and do while relaxing on the coastline or scuba diving on the colorful Adriatic reefs just off Korcula's beaches.
Among the 1,185 islands of Croatia are the Green Islands, home to hundreds of lemon and orange trees. The citrusy fragrances drift through the trees, adding charm and charisma to the ambiance and delighting visitors.
Tourists to Croatia are always enchanted by the folklore, the pride of Croatian culture. Throughout the ages, generations of Croatians maintain Croatia's history and significant events as folklore is a native tradition to be cherished. Visiting the diverse Mediterranean villages and islands of Croatia give tourists ample opportunity to hear folklore through narrative, song and dance.
