Dubrovnik Sailing Adventure Email this page to a friend

This tour is not just a sailing trip or hard adventure package. It is designed for those who love being active in nature, who admire art and history, appreciate ancient architecture and local tradition. Daily activities are rather short and not demanding. Dubrovnik and Elafiti shorelines are rich in history and natural variety - cliffs, caves, coves, rocks, beaches, pine forests... We will explore them on a sailing yacht, in sea kayaks, on bicycle or on foot, swimming or snorkeling.


Lopud, Kolocep and Sipan belong to Elafiti Islands Archipelago - green islands covered by forests, without car traffic, with lots of sunshine and sandy beaches, less than an hour sailing time from Dubrovnik. Each has no more than a couple of hundreds permanent residents who live in stone houses of traditional character. Tall palm trees, parks, gardens and flowers everywhere contribute to easy going life style. Occasionally our yachts or kayaks are escorted by friendly dolphins or tunas that are often seen in the area. The sea is blue, clear, warm and friendly.
