Day by day Itinerary

Day 1
Split - Makarska

Departure from the Split Port at 1300HRS (late arrivals can join in Makarska) and cruise along the Dalmatian coast towards Makarska whilst enjoying lunch. Afternoon swim at one of the wonderful beaches. For the adrenaline lovers, there is an optional zipline ride over the Cetina River Canyon.

Day 2
Makarska - Bol - Stari Grad

In the morning, cruise towards the next destination, the Island of Brač, more precisely to the town of Bol; known for its famous Zlatni Rat Beach (Golden Horn), a natural phenomenon that dominates the other beaches with its specific form. After a swimming break at the horn and lunch, we continue our journey towards Stari Grad on Hvar Island, the sunniest Adriatic island. Free afternoon to explore this unique town. The famous Stari Grad Field is the oldest in Croatia and the best-preserved example of an ancient Greek system of agriculture. Together with the Old Town, it is a part of ‘World Heritage’ protected by UNESCO. Overnight in one of the ports of Stari Grad, main or ferry port (2 km away) depending on availability in port. (B, L)

Day 3
Stari Grad - Hvar

The next destination is the town of Hvar, a favourite destination for jet setters from all around the world. After lunch, a swimming stop, relaxation, and refreshment in the clear, crystal blue sea at nearby Paklinski Islands. Arrival at Hvar in the afternoon hours followed by a guided tour of this extraordinary town. Hvar offers many cultural and historical sites; the Renaissance cathedral; the oldest communal theatre in Europe, founded in 1612; Franciscan Monastery; the Benedictine Convent famous for their lace, listed on the UNESCO World Heritage List; Spanjola Fortress towering high above the town; and many restaurants and bars open late into the night. (B, L)

Day 4
Hvar - Biševo - Vis

Early in the morning cruise towards the little Biševo Island to visit the Blue Cave (entrance fee to be paid on the spot), a magnificent natural phenomenon. The cruise continues towards the Island of Vis, once a strategic navy harbour due to its unique geographical position and as such closed to the public until recently. Because of its isolation, Vis has a special charm, ‘the Mediterranean as it once was’ which makes it unique and interesting to see. Overnight is in the town of Vis, situated on the northern side of the island, developed near the remains of the ancient Issa, the first urban centre in Croatia. If interested, visit the remains of the Roman Thermal Place, and City Museum, or simply take a walk enjoying the view of the beautiful ‘villae rusticae’ situated along the coast. (B, L)

Day 5
Vis - Korčula

During breakfast, we depart towards Korčula, the birthplace of the famous explorer and adventurer Marco Polo. Surrounded by medieval walls, Korčula resembles a miniature Dubrovnik when approaching from the sea. It has more legends, tales, and monuments than you will find anywhere else. Today, Korčula is the only place in the world where the Spanish medieval knight's game, Moreška, is still performed. Upon arrival, enjoy a guided walking tour through the streets of the Old Town built in the shape of a fishbone. Enjoy the numerous ‘konobas’ (taverns), restaurants, cocktail bars, or nightclubs located within and around the city walls. Overnight in port. (B, L)

Day 6
Korčula - Mljet - Šipan or Slano

Cruising continues towards one of the greenest Adriatic islands, the Island of Mljet, where in the western area, the Mljet National Park is situated (entrance fee to be paid on the spot).

Two salt lakes are connected to the sea by a narrow channel, take a boat ride to the St Mary Isle in the Great Lake, where the old church and monastery are situated. Enjoy cycling around, canoeing, or swimming in the lakes. The cruise resumes towards Šipan, part of Elaphite Islands near Dubrovnik, or towards Slano on the coastline. Both are small fishermen's villages, in one of which we will stay overnight in the port and have the Captain's Dinner on board. (B, L, D)
