We highly recommend a boat trip with Denis - it was great being able to go at our pace and Denis was a fantastic skipper tailoring the day to meet our requests and finding the secluded coves for snorkelling. Teenagers and adults alike had a fabulous day, thank you !

Really recommend this company. Great email communication with Denis to set it up, then picked up by Srdjan near our hotel. Weather was perfect and we did the Dubrovnik panorama and then out to the Elifiti islands. Srdjan is a great guy, really knowledgable and full of anecdotes of living in Dubrovnik as a kid.

My 2 boys aged 12 and 14 loved the thrill of a fast boat, and with the weather being good, Srdjan opened it up a few times. Also took us back across the bay to a hidden inlet on the mainland to a fabulous restaurant called Kasar for lunch - it was the best fried calamari and sea bass we ate during the whole week, freshly cooked on a bbq, and a lovely setting.

Many peoples first thought may be that this is quite expensive (compared to the various cruises/fish picnics to the islands which are touted everywhere). But trust me, it is worth it to do this...Dubrovnik is beautiful, and it is really nice to see it at your leisure. If you see a nice vista of the city, you can stop for 10 minutes and enjoy it, Srdjan is very patient. If you want to spend longer or shorter at a place, you can do it. Plus, he will take you to bays and lagoons which no tourist trip will ever go to....the blue lagoon was fab for snorkelling. Drinks, towels and snorkels all supplied.

Our day with Srdjan was the highlight of our holiday. You may only ever get to Dubrovnik once, you owe it to yourself to do it in style....and this is the best.

Myself and my girlfriend had an amazing experience with Denis and Dubrovnik Boat Rentals, and it turned out the to be the best day of our trip.

I contacted Denis a couple of weeks before our trip and he was extremely helpful in helping me arrange the trip – especially as it was a surprise for my girlfriend and i planned to propose. He even allowed me to bring the trip day forward at very short notice due to the weather – extremely friendly and flexible service!

We did the half day tour of the Elifani islands and Denis personalized the day to fit our likes especially as he knows the city well and was an excellent tour guide. He found the perfect spot for me to propose, and it couldn't have been anymore perfect.

I would highly recommend this trip and especially Denis to anybody looking for a boat trip. The whole experience from start to finish could not have gone any better.

We could not say more about how fabulous our experience was with Denis and Dubrovnik Boat Rentals. This was by far our favorite day in the city. From the first time I contacted him for information Denis was quick to respond and extremely helpful, even flexible in finding a day with good weather during our stay. We did the full day tour of the Elifani islands and Denis personalized the day to fit our likes. A local, he knows the city well and was an excellent tour guide. He knew how to avoid all the tourist traps and masses of people on the islands. He was extremely flexible and accommodating, even extending the day so we could get in one last swim off the boat. We also had lunch at a wonderful restaurant he recommended during the day, and it was our favorite meal of our trip. This day trip was very reasonably priced for the service we received and well worth every penny!!

We arranged an 8 hour boat tour with Denis after seeing all of the positive reviews on Tripadvisor. He was extremely responsive and after a couple emails we had everything set to tour the Elaphiti Islands on Sunday. We arrived around 9:45 and met Denis at the main pier in Old Town. Upon arriving he informed us that they had two bookings that day so we would be in the very capable hands of his peer, Srdan. The boats were pretty much identical so this seemed fine to us.

We set out straight away and Srdan asked us what kind of things we were interested in and if we had any special requests. Our only request was a lunchtime stop on Kolocep at Villa Ruza so he proposed a starting itinerary and we set out on the open water.

We found Srdan (or Sergio) to be extremely easy going and knowledgeable about our surroundings. He was an excellent skipper and we enjoyed each of his proposed stops. From the lively soft sand beach of Lopud to caves on Kolocep and Sipan we had the most incredible time. He was flexible and let us either extend or shorten the stops as we saw fit. After our lunch he suggested a final stop by Lokrum and we are so glad we did. You get the most incredible views from this fort at the top and there are interesting sites along the way.

Srdan was an excellent guide and having a private tour of the islands is worth every penny. Highest recommendations for Srdan and Denis of Dubrovnik Boat Rentals.
