9. From Dubrovnik: Private Boat Tour and On-Board Cooking Class
At 9:30 am private skipper will be waiting for you to embark for the adventure! Private speedboat Leader 30 will be yours for a day full of activities. First on the beginning of the tour you'll be riding through beautiful Elaphiti channel, you will have an opportunity to see many little islands and hidden bays. Views are spectacular, so to enjoy them a little longer, you'll make a stop on little seculded island of Jakljan for swimming, sunbathing or snorkeling! Experienced skipper will give you suggestions, but in case you see a beach or a bay that you like, you can always decide to stop there!
After an hour of relaxing, you'll continue towards hidden bay Kobaš. Kobaš is a heaven for yachters and boaters as it's very hard to reach this bay by car or any type of land transportation. It's a small place, but gastronomically one of the rarest you can find on the coast. This is where the tour's highlight happens! From the adventure on the sea to the amusing cooking class with renowned Croatian chef! You will have the opportunity to try 5 courses prepared by master-chef all while he is explaining the process of making the food you'll be eating. This local restaurant is a rare gem, owners produce their own olive oil and they serve fish from their own catch. Basically everything you try there is either home grown or home made. This is Dalmatian cuisine with modern twist and you get to learn tips and tricks from professionals with over 40 years of cooking experience! From the appetizer to the desert all followed by great local wines.
After gastronomical feast in Kobaš, you'll continue towards splendid Marčuleti beach. Marčuleti is also almost impossible to reach by land, so it's a great opportunity to see such beauty from the boat. It's known for its characteristic sea color and untouched nature. Perfect spot to relax after a filling meal! You can snorkel there or even rent a sea scooter to enhance snorkeling experience. Rare beauty of this location will definitely stick with you for a long time. This tour is all about secluded locations that not many people get to see, but it is so authentic that there is hardly better way to discover Adriatic coast.
After Marčuleti visit, it will be time to head back to Dubrovnik. During the boat ride you can unwind and catch last photos from the tour as you'll be passing through stunning Elaphiti channel again. Around 5:30 pm you should be back on shore, full, probably tipsy and happy with new unique experience from your vacation!
