Craig, one of our Directors, just returned last week from Dubrovnik, Croatia and he’s excited to fill you all in. Read on to discover Craig’s must-do’s activities in Dubrovnik!
A Private Boat Tour: It’s all about the water when visiting the Dalmatian Coast, and having your own private vessel makes for a trip of a lifetime. They make for an incredible swim platform in some secluded anchorages on a hot day. We have various sizes suitable for groups up to 12. For larger groups, it’s a ton of fun to charter multiple vessels and travel in tandem. The service onboard is second-to-none, filled with snacks, towels, lunch, drinks, everything you need. You’ll explore islands and quiet beaches that you cannot access any other way.
Sea Kayaking: This is another fun way to get off the beaten path and suitable for nearly any fitness level.
Visit an Oyster Farm: Okay, this one is an absolute must. Hire a driver to take you out to Ston to visit some truly world-class fresh oyster farms and learn about the process from a passionate local who will shuck some of the fresh mollusk for you right then and there while sipping on wine and myrtle brandy that the 82 year old grandfather makes.
You’ll have plenty of time to stop in small villages on the way home, including a stop in the home of a local celebrity chef for a lovingly prepared lunch in her garden. It’s totally unique and memorable and, truthfully, the best oysters I’ve ever laid my hands on.
Hole-In-The-Wall Bars: Visit a few of the more “out of the way” bars hanging to the walls of this ancient city. You’ll be quite literally hanging over the Adriatic below. Make sure to pack a swimsuit as you’ll enjoy some of the best swimming, just steps from your table!
Join the local coffee culture: I can’t stress enough how much the locals LOVE their coffee. They tend to populate the many outdoor cafes from sun up till well past sunset. It’s a perfect place to do some wholesome people-watching.
