OVERVIEW – Short Adventure Sailing

Adventure Sailing holiday isn’t just a sailing trip or adventure package. It was designed for those who love being active outdoors, who admire art and history and appreciate ancient architecture and local tradition. Daily activities are rather short and not too demanding, leaving plenty of time to enjoy the sun. Dubrovnik, the Elaphiti shorelines and Mljet Island National Park are rich in history and natural variety – cliffs, caves, coves, rocks, beaches and pine forests. We will explore them while sailing on a yacht, sea kayaking, cycling, swimming, snorkeling and on foot.

Lopud, Kolocep and Sipan belong to the the Elaphiti Islands archipelago. These are some of Croatia’s most beautiful green islands – covered by forests with lots of sunshine and sandy beaches and free of traffic. Their location is ideal – we reach them in under an hour’s sailing time from Dubrovnik.

Experienced local guides and skippers will avoid overcrowded destinations ensuring you get the most authentic experience. You will have the opportunity to dine with local families in their homes and enjoy good food and excellent wine. Friendly dolphins or tuna that are often seen in the area often escort our yachts. The sea is blue, clear, warm and friendly.

This holiday includes three nights on the boat and has 2 versions – weekend and weekday.

We guarantee excellent value for money. Families with children aged 8 and up are welcome on family departures.

DETAILED ITINERARY – Short Adventure Sailing WEEKEND DEPARTURES

Day 1: Arrival at Destination – Kolocep Island SUP, swimming, sailing to Lopud and Sipan Islands

Arrival at the sailing base in Komolac and boarding at 10 am. The guests are welcomed on board by their crew and we sail out after short safety instructions. Our yacht is a modern catamaran for up to 10 passengers with a lot of deck space, comfort and very good sailing performance. Our first stop today is Kolocep island – the smallest of the inhabited islands in the Elaphiti Archipelago. Kolocep is ideal for water activities and we will try out paddleboards and make a swimming break before stopping for lunch in one of the best fish restaurants in the area. After lunch and a short hike to Kolocep’s spectacular cliffs, we continue sailing towards Lopud and Sipan islands. We will anchor in one of the most beautiful bays of the area for a dinner and a swim.

Night: catamaran
Day 2: Sailing to Mljet Island and Peljesac Peninsula

We leave Sipan behind early today and sail out towards Mljet Island National Park. Two salt water lakes surrounded by a lush, green forest, the larger one with a small island in the middle, make Mljet a spectacular location for kayaking, paddleboarding, hiking, cycling and swimming. You can choose to cycle from the catamaran to the lakes, where you can take a boat to the small island with a 12th century Benedictine monastery. Entrance fee to the national park is not included, but can be paid on spot. In the late afternoon we will sail towards the Peljesac Peninsula and anchor in a quiet bay near Zuljana Village.

Accommodation: catamaran

Day 3: Peljesac Peninsula paddleboarding, swimming, snorkeling and cycling

Today we spend the day exploring the Peljesac Peninsula, one of the most successful and famous wine making regions in Croatia. It is a true oasis of peace with its vast vineyards, salt and oyster farms, quiet towns, narrow streets and hidden beaches. We will spend the morning paddling, snorkeling and swimming in Zuljana Bay. Afterwards we sail east towards Broce and Ston. Cycle to Ston, a lovely old town unspoiled by tourism, with pleasant cafes and restaurants. Take the time to explore the Ston city walls, salt farms, or taste its famous oysters or mussles before returning to Broce for the evening.

Day 4: Elaphiti Islands sailing, departure

This morning we sail out of Broce and continue sailing east between the Elaphiti Islands until we reach Komolac again. Disembark around noon.
