Maro was amazing and was flexible due to the bad weather! We started late but spend more than 4 hours, all my friends were happy! We explored many islands and Caves along with the swimming in the beach! He was very helpful knowing things in Dubrovnik and Would definitely visit again!

excursion in the three islands very well. It would just take a little more time for the second island, Crew of the boat very friendly and helpful the young girl does her job really well. correct meal the boat is very clean.

Really enjoyed the boat trip, just the right amount of stops, and a lovely lunch. We got the golf cart to the beach on the last island and it was lovely there for swimming and relaxing for a couple of hours

A great way to visit other islands. Water was chilly in April, but with good water temperatures islands offer great places for an outdoor swim.

Really great value for money and nice way to spend the day seeing some smaller authentic islands.
