Great half day tour, more than we expected. Me and partner who is 6 months pregnant signed up for this trip via WhatsApp after briefly speaking to a rep by the name of Zlatko who said we were to pay the 750Kn (approx £86 for 2) on arrival. We had a few questions to ask via WhatsApp which the rep promptly answered after speaking to the skipper (mainly was it ok for my partner with her being pregnant). We expected this to be a pretty calm relaxing excursion, although parts of it were other parts were far more than we had bargained for. Picked up from our hotel In Lapad and a short trip to the dock. Our Skipper for the day was Niko, very friendly and helped us on to the boat and advised best my partner stay to the back of the boat as it is a smoother ride on the speedboat. Part 1 of the trip was a couple of hours on Sandy Beach on the island of Lopud, nice scenery although slightly spoilt by tourist leaving rubbish behind. Make sure you take a bag as you will need to carry anything you want to take to the beach from the boat via the sea (stomach height where we got in the water). Couple of places for drinks and food although we done neither. Part 2 was where the excitement started, short ride from Lopud to 3 caves on the island of Kolocep and beer and a fanta on route. Plenty of swimming involved, Niko was very clear in that we all were to swim to the entrance to the first cave and wait for the group in front to come out. We were given goggles and swam to the cave. Sea was a little choppy so treading water was easier than holding on to some of the rocks. I’d say you should be a confident swimmer to do this, first cave was narrow and we sat at the back, waves coming in threw us around a little. 2nd cave and 3rd are adjoining so this involves going under water and being pulled through narrow gaps. Great views up through caves to the sky. After the 3rd cave Niko had to control the group as people began to move on without him. Next part coming out of the cave gave you two options, up the cliff and jump in to the water from roughly 4 metres or swim around the rock. We had to swim around, this was a proper swim and would be difficult for someone who was not confident swimmer. We would have normally jumped if partner wasn’t pregnant. Part 3 was the blue cave after a lovely sandwich and a beer/Fanta again. Absolutely beautiful view from the inside, goggles needed to she the best of this. This part was more relaxed that the 3 caves and a gentle swim from the boat and back. Niko the skipper was engaging funny helpful and controlled the group of 12 well when needed and gave us clear instructions throughout and was knowledgeable of the islands too. Few scrapes and scratches from the caves but definitely worth it, not exactly what we expected but better that what we had hoped for (pregnant partner said this too and was glad she done it).

Thanks Niko 👍🏻

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.

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.

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 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.

I wouldn't call this a guided tour - our boat captain didn't communicate much. After the shuttle driver dropped us off, we stood near the dock for about 20 minutes without anyone acknowledging us until they were ready to leave. There was only one mask with a snorkel, and an assortment of masks. I was lucky enough to get the one snorkel, so I can't complain, but I felt like they should have mentioned it so people had the option of buying a set on the island if they wanted them. I've been on similar tours where they helped us fit the masks in advance, but there was no instruction offered even to the kiddo trying it for his first time.

Pros: cold drinks and a boat ride with good music. And our shuttle driver was right on time.

Overall, based on the positive reviews I think the experience is highly dependent on who you get driving your boat. I thought it was overpriced & wouldn't recommend it based on my experience. I rounded up on my rating because the weather was overcast for most of the trip & maybe it would've been better on a different day.

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!

Never be late for the pickup time even only for one minute. No one would ever try to contact you. It is non refundable even there are available seats next day. You have to pay for 50% of the original price.
The tour was fine except for the sandwich and drinks. Note that you will also be taken into a sanj beach where you are encourage to "pay for drinks" in order to get so-called free beach umbrella. It would be better to bring food by yourself.
I wouldn't recommend this tour because it is relatively expensive compared to those offers from other travel agencies in the old town (60euros instead of 79 euros)and service is not very satisfying.

Hi, I shouldn’t have offer you anything. Boat went empty for two spaces because you didn’t show up and second day you paid only for one ticket, when capacity was full. You were late way more then one minute, and this is message we have sent you regarding the pick up: “Please be on time that is very important so you don’t miss your transfer.” We paid for your transfer and pick up for other guests from same location went smoothly So yes, if you are late for organised transfer do not expect us to call, this is an organised boat tour, not private boat rental. In case you are late you need to figure out to come on your own, if you want. You could have come with taxi as well. I think we made an excellent price since, we didn’t have to welcome you, or give you any discount at all. If this tour was expensive for your budget you should have found the one that you can afford. Also, you never attended other tours so comparing doesn’t make sense. Kind regards

Getting the only slightly negative thing out of the way first……it was a bit of a scrum when you first get down to the quayside because lots of other people were there to go on the same excursion (some had booked, some hadn’t by the looks of it). We were actually very lucky in the end; as a group of six to end up with our own boat.

Frankie our captain / guide was excellent. Very relaxed and calm, plus he likes to go fast, which the kids loved! Three stops and you get plenty of time in each. The whole premise of the trips are that they are done slightly off peak times, so weren’t at all crowded when we got there. Life jackets / floatation devices were available for weaker swimmers, but these will make it tricky to get through some of the small gaps. The beach stop was awesome - great cocktails up at the bar, although you do have to swim / wade up to the shore a short distance. Frankie provided a waterproof bag.

Anyway, overall a superb way to spend half a day - thoroughly recommend apart from those with younger children and babies. Highlight - connecting to the Bluetooth speakers in Frankie’s boat and blasting out some tunes as we raced over the waves.

We had a great time with Luca. He was a great boat driver and a lot of fun! Recommend bringing cash for beach bar if you want to buy any food or drinks but drinks and sandwich are provided on the boat. All around a great tour and fun way to spend a hot day!
