it was totally worth it, I highly recommend it

It was my best experience of my stay in Dubrovnik. Our skipper/captain, Dubo, picked us up from the old city. He was very nice and took us to 3 beautiful islands and had a great swim.

Not worth the price
Ivan_V

The boat was not what we expected, for the price. Despite being old, it could have other comforts. like some pillow or something to relax. Inside it was dirty and untidy. When we got back we had to wait for him to clean the boat. Duvo was kind, but still had strange manners. I would not recommend it.

Even though the sail...
Gregory_S

Even though the sail itself was pleasant, I couldn't stand the organization. The Viator's brochure specifically offered a ride to the boat dock area for 15 euros. I attempted unsuccessfully to get in touch with the skipper on a day before the sail. At 8:30 pm the skipper finally sent me a message that he is looking forward to the sail tomorrow. When I asked him about the ride, he told me that his car is already full. I spent $45 each way on taxi. During the sail we stopped for lunch at the restaurant that was supposed to accept credit cards, but in reality, it didn't. I had to spend extra 30 euros in fees for rip-off ATM machine by the restaurant to get 100 euros of cash. The boat itself is rather small 10 meters long, 30 years old, not well kept, with just enough basics to get through the day of sailing. It wasn't big enough for 7 people to sit comfortably on the deck. The skipper Dubo is a good sailor, but he wasn't as accommodating as I've experienced elsewhere in Croatia. Bottom line, the places we visited were fantastic. I personally would have enjoyed better another boat and another skipper.

This trip was excellent! Put captain was on no time table. We sailed when we could motored when there was no wind and swam off of three different islands in beautiful water. We met great people. We got way more for our money than we expected.

Classy adventure
Destry

If you like participating in your vacation, this is for you. This was really a great mix of involvement, relaxation, information, and sightseeing. Our guide, Dubo, met us at the wharf and we sailed out into the Adriatic and wove between a series of islands, all the while learning about the history of the region and the daily lives of its people. We were encouraged to sail, so we tacked the boat and took the tiller which was much more exciting for us than sitting idly the whole day, but if you just want to relax that's an option too. Some of our crew was in total vacation mode and hardly moved until we got to lunch, which was a superb restaurant on an islands where we had fresh fish and local wine. Bring sunscreen, sunglasses, maybe a long-sleeved shirt and hat to protect against the sun. Also bring swimwear because you'll stop for a while at a small bay and jump in. The guide was awesome, the food was incredible, and the scenery gorgeous. Highly recommended to all.

Nice experience on an average sailing-boat
Carolina
, Jul 2021
A nice experience and lovely to be on the ocean. The sailing boat was average-looking and our trip was fortunately only four passengers, more would have felt crowded. No extra service on board besides a bottle of water. The skipper was flexible about how to direct the tour. Tell the skipper what you want out of the trip so the route matches your expectations. Our first stop was at an island by a crowded beach with many boats. We asked for a next stop with less people and boats. Second stop at an island with nice restaurant. And third stop at our request by an island with fewer boats and swim by our boat. Whether you get to sail or go by motor the whole trip is hard to say, a tip is to check the weather forecast ahead so you know what to expect.

Dear Carolina, thank you for your follow up. We are very happy and glad that you liked our experience and that you had a great time. What I do not understand is 3-star review. Yes, yacht is not luxary and that is written in description, also yes, due to covid-19 we decided not to offer any other food or drinks instead of water. We can not control number of tourists on beaches and we follow description. And also, we can no control weather. We do not set sails if weather is not suitable for sailing (rain, wind, waves). The day you booked was beautiful, sunny day will no wind, so we used the engine. So your review does not follow our experience and is ruining our average score, since majority of guest are extremely satisfied.

Amazing experience
Ciara_M

We had a wonderful day with Dubo, I would recommend this highly for anyone coming to Dubrovnik. You get an amazing sailing experience and there is no time pressure so you can create your own itinerary and relax. It was a magical day where we stopped at lots of islands, swam and had an amazing lunch.

A memorable day
Heike_F
, Jul 2021
We had a wonderful day with just the right mixture of adventure (something that felt like serious sailing - at least to the non- experts we are) and relaxation after lunch when all the excitement, fresh air and lovely food had us a little bit drowsy. We felt super safe during the whole trip and Dubo was very relaxed about the time we spent at the various stops. If you are going on that tour don’t plan to be back in time - you might enjoy it so much that you want to spend another hour - or two.

Perfect Day on the water
Paul_L
, Jul 2021
Absolutely amazing day with Dubo. He catered every moment to exactly what we wanted to do. When we would stop to swim, he would insist that we not rush, take our time. We were on no schedule. He let us help with the sailing as much or as little as we liked. The boat itself is really cool. He recommended a restaurant for lunch on one of the islands and it was the best fish I have ever eaten. He had put the sails away while I was asleep toward the end of the day. I asked him if we could put them back up so that when we sailed by my friend we could get some great pictures. He immediately put them all back up and we got great shots. I highly recommend this.
