Fantastic tour! We had no itinerary in mind but our tour guide, Marco, made sure we had a great time. We swam in a blue cave as well as a few other gorgeous caves and had lunch in Lopud. The entire afternoon was great. Highly recommend this tour and Marco!

Outstanding Way To See The Beautiful Elaphiti Islands

Private Elafiti Islands Tour from Dubrovnik by Quicksilver 555
This was a fabulous tour and I highly recommend for all ages! Our skipper was Loren, a fantastic guide and skipper. He grew up within the walled city, so was extremely knowledgeable about the city and the area. In addition, he was personable and funny, something our group enjoyed very much. We hired the four hour tour, but it was so good, we extended it by an hour which gave us time for a very leisurely lunch on one of the islands, as well as time to explore. This tour was one of the best tours we have enjoyed, and I highly recommend it. It was a perfect way to see the beautiful Elaphiti islands!

When to Get There

Summer—especially July and August— is the most popular time to visit. Boats can fill up quickly during this time, so be sure to book ahead. It’s possible to visit during winter, although ferries and tours are less frequent and may be weather-dependent. Visiting out of season means you’ll avoid crowds and have the sights to yourself, but be aware that most island hotels and restaurants will be closed.
