Day by day Itinerary

Day 1
Dubrovnik

Check in from 1400HRS, cabins ready from 1600HRS (aim to arrive in Dubrovnik to coincide). Either explore the town on your own or join the guided tour starting at 1700HRS, followed by an optional cable car ride up to the Srđ Mountain for spectacular views of the Old Town. Don’t miss Stradun, both a street and a square in the Old Town and try to find time to walk at least part of the 1,940m long city walls which have protected Dubrovnik during earthquakes and attacks. Overnight in the port of this magical town.

Day 2
Dubrovnik - Šipan or Trstenik

Late morning departure towards the Island of Šipan or the small town of Trstenik on the Pelješac Peninsula. Gorgeous spots for an afternoon swim and time at leisure with the possibility of visiting a local winery. In the evening enjoy the special Captain’s Dinner on board. Overnight in the port. (B, L, D)

Day 3
Šipan or Trstenik - Korčula

After breakfast, depart for the island of Korčula, one of the famous islands in the Dubrovnik region. It is the birthplace of the famous explorer Marco Polo. Lunch on board in a bay near Korčula Town. The encircling walls and bastions of Korčula Town date back to the 13th century and there are some lovely churches and museums. Join the optional sightseeing of Korčula Town or an optional wine and local appetizer tasting at a local winery before dining in one of the numerous seafront restaurants or konobas on your own. Overnight in the port of Korčula Town. (B, L)

Day 4
Korčula - Hvar

Early departure towards the Paklinski Islands near Hvar, the longest island in the Adriatic, for lunch and a swimming stop. Later, there’s an optional afternoon sightseeing of Hvar Town, which resembles a film set. The Renaissance cathedral has its original tower and the oldest community theatre in Europe, founded in 1612. Hvar is known as a ‘jet-set island’, offering abundant entertainment, excellent restaurants, bars, and cafés serving drinks long into the night. Don`t forget to buy some island lavender from local stalls. Overnight in Hvar. (B, L)

Day 5
Hvar - Bol - Split

The next stop is the island of Brač. The most famous, and most photographed, beach in Dalmatia is Zlatni Rat (Golden Horn). Near Bol, Zlatni Rat is famous for its everchanging shape, a shingle bar that moves according to the wind. Great place for a swim stop. Bol is a typical fishermen’s village that kept the atmosphere despite being a popular spot for visitors. After lunch, on the way to Split, it is possible to join the optional river rafting excursion or zip line on the Cetina River. The approach to the Split Riviera is wonderful and offers the best views from on board. On arrival, join the optional guided tour of Split or explore this monumental city, which together with the famous Roman Diocletian’s Palace is under UNESCO protection, on your own. Split is full of bistros and restaurants serving local specialities. Cool bars too. (B, L)

An early breakfast before check out and final goodbyes to new friends and the crew. (B)
