Full Day Private Boat Tour with a Local Guide

Dubrovnik Islands & Sea
Authentic Local Experience

Dubrovnik boat tour scene is dominated by a few big businesses all running the same itineraries, visiting the same spots. Many nice places are turned into tourist traps because they are overcrowded.

I don't visit any of the popular spots and I don't go to crowded places. They are mediocre and mainstream friendly. I’ve found better alternatives which are still undiscovered.

Using good timing and local knowledge I will take you to the best spots when there are none or very few other people there. You will feel, smell, see, hear and taste the very best of Elafiti islands, same way the locals do.

Hi, I'm Niki.
I'm 29 years old, guy, college educated. I grew up on Elafiti Islands. I would often do boat trips with friends or family. I know of all secret beaches, cliffs, snorkeling and swimming spots.
Islands near Dubrovnik are my second home and it would be my pleasure to show you the best parts.

In 2018 I quit my job (IT in a travel agency) and started this micro business. I created this tour and I will personally accompany you and share my local insights with you.

    Unforgettable experience A person with a kind heart and a genuine love for his country, Niki is such a sincere and fun guy to do the boat tour with to explore the islands of Dubrovnik. He was born and raised there and the way he talked about his life growing up in the island and taking us to his grandma’s patio for some drinks gave our experience with him a more personal touch to it and we felt even more happier about our decision to visit the country. We felt very safe throughout the whole day with him. The experience was great and very relaxing, he is very informative and attentive to what we need. The places he too... show more

    Brilliant Day Nicki was fully booked the day we wanted to head out to the islands, so he arranged for us to go out with his colleague Miho. We had an absolutely fantastic day on Miho’s boat. Miho was incredibly friendly and accommodating, making us delicious Turkish coffee and taking us to his favourite spots. We joined Nicki’s boat for an adventure into the green cave (lesser know and more beautiful than the blue cave). We stopped for lunch on Sipan, which included freshly caught fish and generous quantities of local wine. Highly recommend Nicki and Miho for a great day out.

    Fabulous Day! What a wonderful day Niki and captain Felix gave us! Niki had a great knowledge of the area and was able to take us to spots off the tourist route. We enjoyed swimming in the green cave, a beautiful lunch just for us at his village followed by drinks at his grandmothers place overlooking the water. A truely local experience. If you are looking for a special day on the water I would suggest getting in touch with niki.
    Many thanks for a wonderful day!

    Truly wonderful day! Our day on the water with Niki was beyond wonderful. We were spoiled beyond belief from the moment we stepped onto the boat. There was no rush or checking of the time as we set off to explore all the beautiful places only a local would know. A private beach, snorkeling, a secret cave. Our teenage daughters were very entertained by both Niki and Peter as they both were super friendly and eager to show us their beautiful area. Niki found a baby octopus in a large shell that he carefully cradled onto the boat to share with us and gently returned it to the water. Amazing!! To our surprise, he took... show more

    UNIQUE PATH FOR A LOCAL CROATIAN EXPERIENCE !!!!! This trip is not to be missed if you are visiting Croatia! We were so impressed with our guide, Niki. Besides his vast knowledge of the country, he showed us beautiful secluded locations including coves, beaches, caves and his own village. His village tour included a private homemade 5 course meal at local friends of his. It was FABULOUS! Yum! Even the wine was homemade. We then ventured to the villa Niki grew up in to enjoy his delicious homemade mojitos on a private quaint terrace overlooking the sea and town. After lunch we picked grapes from the roof top to enjoy. The boat was ... show more

    Unique Dubrovnik | A day on the water We shared a fabulous day on the water with Niki and Captain Felix! Although we received a comprehensive guide to the day’s potential events, we didn’t expect this experience to be so unique. We thoroughly enjoyed Niki’s “local” knowledge, which was personalised and plentiful ... from walking around a small village on one of the islands, Green Cave swimming, local lunch, swimming off the back of the boat and to enjoying drinks as we cruised back to dock.

    Niki is a “Jack if all Trades” and showed uncompromising commitment to ensuring we had the best possible local experience ... we were eve...

    An unforgettable experience If you go to Dubrovnik do not hesitate to take a boat trip with Niki. We were a group of 5 friends who consider this one of the best days of their lives. We were on beautiful islands, jumped off cliffs, and met the beautiful green cave. Nikki was always very kind and without a doubt, he makes incredible mojitos. The food, besides being delicious, is prepared by a beautiful family.

    We highly recommend this tour and we will definitely do it again!
