Early in the morning we set sail to Brač where a swimming stop is planned at Zlatni Rat beach, a long, pebbly beach near Bol that protrudes over 500m out into the Adriatic Sea and, surrounded by deep blue water, changes shape with the wind, which makes it unique in Croatia. In case of bad weather, we will make a stop at nearby Milna. Afterwards we head to Hvar, the longest island in Croatia, the sunniest in all Europe (2724 sunny hours each year) and undeniably among the most beautiful islands in the world. Upon arrival join the guided tour of Hvar and learn why this amazing town is a must see on the historical map of the Croatia. Your evening is free to explore this amazing holiday spot by yourself. Note: port of call can be substituted for Stari Grad because of the limited capacity of Hvar Harbour. In that case transfer to and from Hvar will be organized by Zantium Travel
Early in the morning we set sail to the island of Vis. But, before Vis we will make a stop on the Biševo Island to see a stunning natural phenomenon – the Blue Cave. The Blue cave is famous all over the world for its extraordinary, magical, indescribable silver-blue light. After this enchanting experience we continue our journey towards Vis, an island we can say is the most mysterious island in Croatia. For many years it was the military and naval headquarters of Tito’s partisan army and was closed to the public until 1989. This means that it had escaped large commercial development and was able to retain its natural beauty and charm, resist development and become a world famous destination for real nature lovers and people seeking new adventures, these are but a few reasons we are in love with Vis. Evening is free to explore this charming little town on your own.
Early in the morning we set sail for the island of Korčula, rich in vineyards, olive groves and small villages with numerous bays and coves. Swim stop in one of the peaceful bays, perfect to enjoy the beautiful atmosphere of the unspoiled nature, lush vegetation and crystal clear sea. Lunch on board. Afternoon arrival in Korčula. This medieval ”little Dubrovnik”, said to be the birthplace of Marco Polo, has an ancient atmosphere and we will enjoy getting to know it on an interesting tour along its winding streets.. After the tour, make the best of some free time and sip a glass of local wine or coffee at an outdoor cafe, take a dip in the sea or just continue walking the streets. Overnight in Korčula.
Today we sail to Mljet -the most forested island in the Adriatic and one of the most beautiful pearls of the Mediterranean. Mljet is also well known for its two salted lakes – Veliko and Malo Jezero located at the north end of the island. The Benedictine monastery, situated on the island of St. Mary on Veliko Jezero, one of the most beautiful locations in the area, is also the most visited spot and symbol of the National Park. Join the cruise manager on this magnificent tour and find out why the Greek hero Ulysses considered it his favorite holiday spot. Return to the ship followed by captain’s dinner aboard. Overnight In port Pomena.
Early in the morning we depart to Slano, a small town indented into a 2km long bay. From here we will start our gastro adventure towards Ston, the gastronomic center of the county. This town with the longest walls in Europe is situated near Dubrovnik and is surrounded by breathtaking scenery which, together with the picturesque city architecture, forms a harmonic entity. Once there we will visit an oyster farm where you will learn how oysters and mussels are cultivated in this region, and why they are so delicious. You will enjoy a rustic oyster and mussel tasting with local wine under the shade of the trees. Overnight in Slano.
