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!

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!

What people are saying about Elaphiti Islands

This was an excellent excursion if you have a day in Dubrovnik. We did the half day tour with just our family and the skipper. The boys learning some basic sailing skills, we got to swim off the sailboat in pristine waters. It was a great way to escape the crowds in Old Town and an overall very relaxing day. Highly recommend.

Really cool experience and would highly recommend this company/tour. My family and had never done sailing before, so were excited for the experience. Our guide was great- customised the trip to fit our interests, and shared some great insights on sailing.

Our skipper, Dragon, was so great! Super patient and experienced. We felt safe and enjoyed our time exploring the islands with him
