Elaphite Islands Karaka Cruise

 Cruise with us on Karaka, the magnificent replica of a Dubrovnik Republic traditional merchant ship from the 16th century and explore the picturesque white-stoned towns of the Elaphite Islands, enriched with lush green pine-trees and clear blue sparkling waters of the Adriatic Sea.

 

Indulge in beautiful local cuisine – a true delight for all your senses. The Elaphite Island Karaka cruise is one of the most wonderful ways to discover history while cruising on a warm summer day.

We sail to the island of Koločep, covered in a dense pine forest with a picturesque fishermen’s village lying along the bay.

 

We will continue to the village of Suđurađ on the island of Šipan, a fisherman’s port with a 16th century summer villa of the Skočibuha family. Our last stop will be the island of Lopud, which boasts a long maritime tradition and is a home to famous captains and sailors. We will take a Lungomare walk to the Franciscan Monastery and the 19th century Gjorgic-Mayneri Park, with enough free time for swimming at one of the sandy beaches.
