DUBROVNIK BOAT TOURS
TRUE LOCAL EXPERIENCE
Niki - Owner & Guide
My name is Niki. I am 30 year old, college educated, born and raised in Dubrovnik. I spent my childhood on islands near Dubrovnik. My family often went on boat trips when I was a kid. Today, I want to share that experience with you.
After many years working in tourism I started this business back in 2018. My goal is to provide the absolute best experience of Dubrovnik islands and sea. The itinerary is made by me and it is one of a kind. Unlike big companies I offer high level of personalized service and authentic local experience.
