Dubrovnik: Full-Day Sea Kayak Tour to Elaphite Islands

1. Dubrovnik: Full-Day Sea Kayak Tour to Elaphite Islands

Embark on a full-day trip from Dubrovnik to the Elaphite Islands. Kayak, snorkel, and swim amongst lush scenery as you explore Lopud Island, the Green Cave, and Šipan. Stop at the village of Suđurađ to try local food and venture to the uninhabited island of Ruda. After arriving at Lopud via ferry, head to the base to get geared up. During a safety talk, your tour leader will provide kayaking instructions and explain the equipment so you can have the best experience. Once ready, set off across the channel for the island of Šipan. Before arriving at the Green Cave, an orchestrated sound of cicadas from Šipan will lure you to its coast. Once there, tie up the kayaks and get ready for swimming and snorkeling in the ethereal green light of this secluded cave. A high cliff awaits for the brave ones. Following along the coast, arrive at a delightful fishing village of Suđurađ on the island of Šipan. Have a break for lunch in one of the restaurants that provide fresh local delicacies. Enjoy fresh fish caught the very same day with homemade olive oil (costs not included). The last stop of the day is the small uninhabited island of Ruda. Following its coast, arrive at the hidden rusty cave on the other side of the island. Paddle inside the cave, snap some photos of intricate details, and feel like a pirate while hiding in the shade of this rocky grotto. On the way back to the base, paddle in front of a picturesque 15th-century monastery and arrive back at Lopud. After dropping off your gear, receive your return ferry tickets. Before your return ferry trip, you can go for a walk, swim, or enjoy a drink on the promenade.

Dubrovnik: Cave & Islands Ferry, Kayak, and Snorkel Tour

2. Dubrovnik: Cave & Islands Ferry, Kayak, and Snorkel Tour

The tour starts in Gruz, Dubrovnik's local harbour. Your guide will greet you at set location with all necessary information provided. A relaxing 50-minute ferry ride to Lopud island follows (tickets included in the tour price), where your kayaking gear awaits. Suit up and paddle (approx. 40 minutes) to the Green cave on Sipan. Swimming and snorkeling, as well as optional cliff jump are planned for this site. Paddle for another 20 minutes to land in Sudurad village on Sipan. Your tour guide will recommend best local meal options, because "when in Rome..." Kayaking back to Lopud takes about 45-60 minutes. Kayaking around Ruda island (one between Lopud and Sipan) adds another 15-20 minutes to it and is optional; depending on weather conditions and personal group's preference. Now you can summarize experiences while ferry back to Dubrovnik just in time for your dinner plans.

Had an absolute blast on Marko’s tour - you don’t want to miss out on this one! Mljet is stunning and one of the highlights of my time in Croatia. Marko has put together a really unique experience and was a fun, attentive, and knowledgeable guide. Great for solo travelers like me and small groups alike!

Bei weitem das beste Erlebnis in unserem 5-tägigen Aufenthalt. Die beiden waren nicht nur witzig und super engagagiert, sondern haben uns auch einen nicht touristischen Teil der Umgebung zeigen können! Es war einzigartig und würde es jedem empfehlen!!!

Our guide was extremely friendly!! We made a real discovery of these magical islands. the speedboat ride was great and touring in a small group was a real bonus. Thank you to our guide for his attention to our well-being! We recommend!!

Thanks to Marcko for an outstanding day out. The tour includes lots of fantastic locations that are empty and not known to many tourists. I strongly recommend this tour, it is 100% worth the money.

Filip was a great guide, full of interesting information and clearly a very competent kayaker. Good quality equipment and instruction was provided throughout.
