Day 1
Zadar - Ugljan - Pašman - Murter

Embarkation in the port of Zadar from 1130HRS to 1300HRS. Bicycles are already waiting for you in front of the ship. After you have chosen a bike and possibly taken it for a test spin, you will be greeted by the tour guide with a welcome drink, and you will get to know the crew and fellow passengers. During a snack onboard, we cast off and cross over to Preko on the Island of Ugljan. We cycle via Kali and Kukljica to the Ždrelac bridge, which connects the islands of Ugljan and Pašman. We continue via Neviđane, Pašman and Kraj to Tkon, where our ship is already waiting for us. We load the bikes back onboard and set course for Podvrške Bay on the Island of Murter.

After lunch we cycle through the National Park to the ‘Skradinski Buk’, with 800m the longest and probably best known part of the waterfalls. An impressive natural spectacle, because here the Krka falls in 17 steps with cascades up to 100m wide.

Today there is only a short cycling tour on the programme. We cycle from the pier in Šibenik to the fortress of St Nicholas, which is located on a small island at the entrance of Channel of St Anthony from the Adriatic Sea to the Bay of Šibenik. After visiting the fortress, we cycle back to the ship to set sail again. We set course for the Kornati Islands National Park, which consists of 147 mostly uninhabited, partly barren islands and islets. We sail the full length of the National Park, of course not without stopping for a swim. Our destination today is the Telašćica Nature Park, a protected bay cut approx ten kilometres deep into the Island of Dugi Otok. Striking features are the steep cliffs up to 161m high and the saltwater Lake Mir, which are only a few minutes' walk from the ship's pier. In the idyll of this nature park, the Captain's Dinner will be served today. Overnight stay in the Telašćica Nature Park. (B, L, D)

In the cosy village our ship is already waiting for us with lunch. We have the afternoon at leisure, for example for an extensive swim in the sea. Originally, we were supposed to spend the night in Sali. However, it is not possible to moor in Sali because a new harbour is being built there, which will not be completed until 2025. As there is no restaurant in Savar, you will have an additional dinner onboard today, in the form of cold cuts etc. (B, L, D)

Captain reserves the right to change the route in case of bad weather conditions. Departures are guaranteed for minimum 10 participants. Cruise Operator reserves the right to cancel or change the ship name if necessary. Guests are obliged to follow ship rules (found in written form onboard). Guests are not permitted to bring beverages onboard the vessel that have been purchased onshore. All drinks must be purchased onboard. In the event of inappropriate behaviour the Cruise Operator and Captain reserves the right to disembark guests. Most arrival times in port are in the late afternoon. 

Port taxes, entrance fees, sightseeing and excursions (if not included in the package) must be paid in local currency upon arrival.

Due to specific mooring conditions and requirements in some Croatian Ports, ships are moored side by side. This makes it necessary to cross from one ship to the other where there are gaps in between each ship. Special care must be taken at all times when crossing between the vessels and guests do this at their own risk. Crew assistance will be given to those needing and requesting it. Cruises are not recommended for those in wheelchairs or with limited mobility.
