A small town with lots of charm. Croatians believe this is where Marco Polo was born but the Italians dispute this. Still, it's a pretty little place for a stopover. And an overnight stay or two if you need to have a break from rigorous travelling. A popular cruise stop, day tours from Dubrovnik gets here in about 3 hours. The tour I took with Select Dubrovnik indicated that it's a ferry crossing from the mainland to the island. That's very deceptive because what you actually take is a smallish boat with about a 14-15 passenger capacity. It takes about 20-35 minutes and can be quite rough, uncomfortable and wet. The tour agency did not mention this. But the worst thing is that no life jackets were provided. I don't know if all the other tour operators use this means of getting their passengers across. If so, they need to provide some kind of water proofing gear and make sure life jackets are worn or at the very least within reach of all passengers. You can hear gasps from some of the people in my group during the crossing. Some, including me, got cameras wet.
The Korcula Island tour is usually accompanied by a stop in Peljesac for wine tasting on the way back (around 3:45 p.m). This was another blemish for Select Dubrovnik. The wine tasting stop was done on the way to Korcula - at 11 a.m! You can imagine some people were not too happy especially because no one was informed about this until we were all underway on the bus.
So check out your tour organiser as thoroughly as possible. Ask questions.
