        Great boat, better crew!
        It was amazing! Our host was named Emily and we understand why they named the boat after her ;) She was super friendly and enthusiastic! The rest of the crew was also amazing! We had a very nice day and would definitely 100% recommend. Give Emily a raise!

        Num 1 boat tour!
        The staff where so lovely and made us feel welcome and safe. The islands are beautiful, definitely bring swimming stuff as all the islands have amazing beaches and some restaurants/souvenir shops, although the boat provides a very good meal (chicken/fish/veg) and plenty of beverages which are topped up constantly if you want it! Overall we had the best time and definitely recommend the tour!!

        Too cheap for too much fun.
        Fun trip with great staff. The price alongside the free drinks and lunch make it an amazing deal. You’ll be up early, be sure to eat a hearty breakfast, bring sunscreen, swimwear and cash for local shops (some don’t have card machines).

        Fabulous day!
        Wow, what an unreal day. We visited 3 islands, we stayed an hour on 2 islands and 3 hours on the last one. Absolutely beautiful scenery, so many cute bars and boutiques. The boat was very enjoyable, I normally get sea sick but didn’t at all on this. Emily was so attentive and friendly, she recommended some lovely places and was always happy to help. 100% recommend, we’ve had the best day out on our holiday in Dubrovnik! Not one to be missed.

      Being out in the water in Croatia is 5 stars in itself.

      There was no warning when following the guide into the “exciting cave” of the three caves. He just started going an naturally everyone followed. It was EXTREMELY narrow and totally dark. The water was calm at first but a boat must’ve come by because the waves started coming and there was nothing to grab on to and people from the tour in front and behind you so we couldn’t get out of the cave. I was traveling with a Division 1 college swimmer and she could barely handle this cave with the waves coming. It was a one-way cave which required swimming under water, under a rock, and the rock climbing out to the other side to the rocky landing and jumping back into the ocean. The tour guide was so far out in front and not helpful the entire time. However, this all led to a great bonding experience with the strangers on the boat since we all felt the same and we had a great time with them the rest of the trip. And I now understand why they didn’t provide any alcohol until after the cave experience.
      The sandy beach was great, bring cash for the bar there or take your well deserved drinks from the boat to the beach. And the blue cave was cool.
      All in all, I would have been much less stressed and enjoyed a lot more if the guide had just said the cave he was going into was advanced. A heads up would have been nice. The two easy caves and just swimming in the ocean in that area would have made me very happy.
      **Also! Many of these reviews are also forced. The guide sets up their hot spot before docking and STRONGLY encourages a 5-star review pumping their name.
      Just a heads up. Still a nice time but could have been better.

      We booked this during the pandemic so it was certainly quieter than normal however that’s not always a bad thing in Dubrovnik!

      We had to wait a couple of days to do the trip and unfortunately the water was quite choppy on the day we did it so the boat had to go slower and it was a bit of a hard ride at times. The skipper and trip were great though! The drinks were continually offered and the skipper encouraged everyone to get involved. Don’t be afraid when you get to the blue cave entrance, it looks like a small hole in the rocks but is well worth it when you get inside We loved the sandy beach that you go to too. Definitely worth it!

      If you want to discover the incredible surroundings of the beautiful city of Dubrovnik I would highly recommend this tour. I have sailed all around the medittarien and the surrounding sees and haven't seen seen caves and scenery like this before. A lot of it was due to my tour guide Niko, who seemed more like a friend than a tour guide to be honest. Niko has lived in Dubrovnik his whole life and speaks excellent English. He gave a lot of good insider tips on where to go / what to do in Dubrovnik and Croatia. The perfect music was played on the boat to enjoy the sea atmosphere even more. Beer, wine and sandwiches were provided on board. Thank you for the amazing experience.

      We had such a great time during this boat trip! We went at the end of August 2020.

      Firstly, they picked us up from our hotel, which was super convenient. The boat was very new, in great condition. It was very clean and they followed covid regulations and disifected everything.

      Josiph was a great skipper and a really nice and entertaining tour guide. Because the afternoon was going to be windy, he changed the route so we could go to the Blue Cave before the big waves started. He was really nice and helped us get inside the cave and ensured everyone was feeling comfortable. The Blue Cave was really beautiful and we were lucky to be the only ones there.

      Then we stopped at three other caves. The water was very calm and we did snorkelling with equipment that they had on the boat. We spent about 40 minutes there, but it was up to us to decide how long we wanted to spend at each location.

      The last stop was the Sunj beach on Lopud island. Josiph parked the boat close to the shore so we were able to walk through the water to the beach. The beach was pretty empty and the water was very clear and calm. Josiph said that it was the first time in 20 years that he saw the golf that empty, and that usually there would be about 50 boats parked there. We had about an hour and a half there.

      We then returned to the port of Dubrovnik. The atmosphere on the boat was great, we had unlimited drinks (water, juices, wine) and music, along with Josiph’s stories. It was also really fun go at high speed. At the end, they took us back to our hotel which, again, was super convenient.

      Would definitely recommend this experience!

      this trip is now on my top 5 days out ever. we were picked up from the hotel on time and taken on a 10 min car ride to the docks where we were greeted by the boat captains. Once on the boat you take a 15 minute high speed ride to the first of 3 stops which is a set of 3 caves that you can snorkel through for about 30 mins.. then it's back on the boat for a beer and another 10 min ride to an amazing sandy beach that can only be accessed by boat.. the capitan provides water proof bag so you can bring your things ashore for an hour. there's a great little beach bar on site with deck chairs and swing chairs in the shade. Once you come back onboard you are provided with a sandwitch and more beer/soft drinks. then it's off to the main event. the blue cave for 40mins this is hands down one of the most spectacular things we have ever experienced. Crystal blue water and the light reflects inside the sizable cave. Once your back on board its tone for another beer and a 20 min high speed run back to the Dock where transport is waiting. honestly can't recommend highly enough and great value for money at 70 pp I would have paid more now that I've done it. if your in dubrovnik this is an absolute must. the captians are great fun and very knowledgeable all around a great day out and not crowded on the boat. we had 8 people on our boat, the other had 10.

      My girlfriend and I spent 5 days in Dubrovnik and this tour was the absolute highlight of our trip! Not only did we get to see our favourite beach Sunj again (most beautiful beach around in our opinion, and one that can only be accessed by boat) but we also got to visit the caves, including the incredible blue cave. No matter how beautiful it looks in the pictures, they cannot possibly do it justice; the blue cave is truly something one has to see with their own eyes. On top of that, we were mostly alone in the cave, which made it even more magical (our speedboat was not crowded at all, just another couple which made it almost like a private tour).
      Best for last, our tour would not have been the same without the man himself, our guide Joseph!! (aka the man with a plan and a generous tan). Jokes aside, Joseph is the definition of a professional who enjoys his job, and he genuinely cares about your enjoyment. He was extremely attentive and nice (talking and offering us free drinks the whole time), and he was so happy for us when we managed to enter the cave on one side of the island and exit the other! (a little trick he taught us on how to navigate one of the caves).
      Overall this trip is an absolute must, 100% would recommend to anyone visiting beautiful Dubrovnik.

      Was a fun experience with lots of great views. The tour operator had told us to meet at one point and made us wait 30 min before being picked up to be driven to another area, so that wasn’t great. From there we were brought to a beach for about 2hr that had chairs and was attached to a restaurant, however make sure to bring cash as they didn’t accept card, seemed a bit of a ripoff to be dropped off at this beach with little to no guidance beforehand seeing as you had to navigate from the boat to the shore with all your items through water. Got to visit some caves and snorkel and that was amazing!

      My friend and I were blown away. This trip was advertised as a boat tour through a cave. Joseph (guide) crushed these expectations by taking us to a beautiful beach (basically private) with snorkeling then to multiple caves to swim, snorkel, and cliff jump. Had unlimited drinks the entire time. Great music as well. Highly recommend.

      We started the tour with a 10 minute boat ride to 3 small caves. We had 9 people on one small boat; not crazy squashed but not what I would call a 'small group' for a small boat. If you have one, bring your own snorkel. There were lots on offer but all very cheap and most had no clips or were broken. The first cave was very dark, our guide had a torch but she stayed at the entrance to the cave so we couldnt see a thing! The second cave was extremely busy and very narrow. My wife and daughter turned back as it was just too claustrophonic for them. It took me 15 mins to get to the end (about 10 metres) but it was good fun if a bit cold. When we came out of that cave, it was a long swim back to the boat. Other boat tours had been given life jackets so they floated back but we had to swim hard against the tide taking a rest against the rocks at the half way point. Our guide was long gone, she just headed back to the boat on her own.
      Then off to a nice sandy beach area; nice except for the huge number of boats and people there. It was very expensive but pretty. When we got back onto the boat 90 mins later we were offered lunch. A supermarket ham and olive sandwich. No choice (although we heard some other boats were asked before they left what sandwich they'd like).
      Onto the final stop, the Blue Cave. Very pretty but again very busy. We stayed in there for a few mins but nothing much to do except enjoy the blue glow. Not a lot of fish so not much snorkeling.
      Overall it was a nice boat ride but would have been so much better with a bit more effort and attention to detail.

      Booked the Three Island Elphiti island tour by speed boat at Lapad excursion stand. Timings were excellent with 10am direct pick up from our hotel. Paid cash on day. Boat was well equipped and comfortable. Our guide Luca was fantastic. Made us very welcome, catered for our needs with drinks, food and great music on route. Told us lots of cool information about the islands and caves and his briefings on what to do at each cave was excellent. We loved the snorkeling at Kolocep three caves. The beach was lovely at Lopud. Hot hot sand to wear shoes/sandals. Thanks to Luca for the sunbeds too. I'd recommend a waterproof backpack at Lopud as you wade in from the boat to beach. We swam and snorkeled here too in crystal clear waters.
      Final short ride to the blue cave which was an INCREDIBLE experience. Grab a mask and snorkel and peer under water at the lagoon. It's a must do!
      We loved our half day. Back to the dock at 2.15pm then continued our day in the old city.
      I'd recommend the morning trip as boat seats dry, weather usually finer in am. Go on a sunny day for best light in caves. Take a towel. Swim shoes. Go pro camera and book with these guys. Really great trip.
