Dubrovnik Islands & Sea
Exclusive Local Experience

Full Day Private Boat Tour with a Local Guide

About Tour

The tour is a fine mix between fun day at the sea and island lifestyle experience. The itinerary is made by me and it is one of a kind. I made it in a way to avoid the tourist traps while visiting the best local secret spots. I will personally accompany you on tour as a guide.

Secluded Beach & Cliff Viewpoint

First stop is Kolocep island. We’re going to hike a bit (8 minute walk) to get to the best viewpoint at islands forest park. The viewpoint is overlooking island’s cliffs, rocky beach cave, turquoise water, pine trees and local football field. Birds nest at the cliffs and fly in and out constantly. Undiscovered area with barely any other people.

After viewpoint I will take you to a local secluded beach which is in shade and is perfect for swimming. It is calm, quiet, shallow and rarely occupied

Unique Off the Boat Snorkeling and Swimming

Afterwards we will make a swimming & snorkeling stop near an uninhabited islet. The islet is home to many fish, shells and other sea animals. We’ll use some bait to see little schools of fish in their feeding frenzy. While you explore the underwater beauties I will go freediving to hunt for local sea shells. I will give you a presentation about them once we’re back on board.

Visit to my Home on Sipan Island

Next we go to Sipan island. I recommend you having lunch in a local restaurant. The restaurant buys fish off the local fisherman.

After lunch you can relax on a terrace at my grandparents' house. It is a beautiful place with a view and Mediterranean garden. The house is built in classic Adriatic style. I can show you around, the gardens, terraces, olive trees, the view...
I will make you a mojito, give an olive oil presentation, local wine tasting, tell you about Sipan island and then you can continue chilling on the terrace or go for a swim.

Underwater Cave

This is not the Blue Cave on Kolocep island. That one is overcrowded and I consider it a tourist trap.
The cave I’m taking you to is undiscovered, bigger and visually more attractive than Blue Cave. The cave is accessible off the boat by snorkeling into it. The seafloor is white sand which is illuminated in teal color by the light coming in from the entrance.

Optional: Lopud Island

I leave Lopud island as a possibility if you like touristy islands with sandy beaches and bars. So far, my experience is that it isn’t worth it.

  • Plenty of high quality wine, beer & water
  • Seasonal fruit
  • Snorkeling gear

  •   If you want a private alternative for a boat tour around Dubrovnik this is highly recommended. We were four persons who had a 6 hour private tour according to our wishes. Very high service level and a tour according to our preferences. Strongly recommended!
