The Boat Trip Around the Islands

On the last day of the conference, we headed out on a 4 hour cruise around a few of the islands around Dubrovnik. Croatia has over 1100 islands out of which only 76 are inhabited.

We docked up at one of the remote islands and spent about an hour playing sea volleyball.

Here are photos from the trip.

The one thing that really caught my attention was that fantastic blue color of the sea. I have never seen the sea in such a rich shade of blue.

The view of the old town from the ocean. This is the same wall that protected the city from the Venetian attack about 500 years ago and partly defended the Serbian attack 16 years ago.

We saw a great replica of one of the traditional boats used centuries ago. These replica boats are very popular with the tourists and are quite expensive to hire.
