Departure from Dubrovnik harbor Gruz at 13:00h, lunch is served during a cruise along the Dalmatian coast down to the one of the Elaphite islands - Šipan, or small village Slano on the mainland. Both are peaceful fishermen's villages where you can experience the fantastic sunset. Overnight in the port.
After breakfast we continue our journey towards the island and national park Mljet. Lunch on board. Free time to enjoy the salt lakes in the National Park and enjoy the sun and sea on this peaceful island. In the middle of the large lake, inside the National park, one can visit an old abbey and church, or just use a small boat to roam around the National park. Bicycles can also be hired to cycle around the paths that surround the lakes. We continue to Korčula where we arrive in late afternoon. Surrounded by ancient walls and fortified bastions Korčula’s old town is very well preserved with its layout and structure dating back to 13th century. Overnight in port.
Early in the morning we cruise towards the little Biševo island to visit the Blue cave, a magnificent natural phenomenon. As sometimes weather conditions can be very unpredictable, the possibility of our visit will depend on those conditions, however you will be notified of this by the crew. Entrance to Blue Cave is to be paid on the spot (approx. EUR 9.- per person). We continue towards the island of Vis, which was, because of its unique geographical position, a strategic harbour for the navy and closed to the public until recently. Because of this isolation, Vis has a special charm of ‘the Mediterranean as it once was’ which makes it really interesting to see. Overnight in the town of Vis, situated on the northern side of the island, developed near the remains of the ancient Issa, first urban centre in Croatia. If interested, visit the remains of the Roman thermal place, City museum or simply take a walk enjoying the views of the beautiful villae rusticae situated along the waterfront.
Our next destination is little island Šćedro where we will have enough time to relax and refresh in the clean, crystal blue sea. Departure for Hvar after lunch. Hvar is the longest island in the Adriatic. Here we can find the Renaissance cathedral with its original tower; also the oldest community theatre in Europe was founded here in 1612. City of Hvar offers plenty of restaurants, bars and cafes that are open long into the night. Hvar is often referred to as the sunshine and jet-set island
Leave Hvar and continue our cruise towards the island of Brač, more precisely to the town of Bol, best known for its famous Zlatni rat beach (Golden horn), a natural phenomenon that with its specific form dominates the other beaches of Croatia. After the swimming break or short walk around the village we continue towards Makarska where strolling along the streets, you will come across numerous churches and other architectural and cultural sites. Overnight in port.
Early in the morning we continue our trip towards Pučišća, a typical Mediterranean place, situated on the northern side of the Brač island at the bottom of the deep bay. It is cradle of the world’s famous stone of Brač. There is a possibility of visiting a stone-masonry workshop, one of the few stone masonry workshops left in Europe. We continue to Omiš, a picturesque town surrounded with steep rocky mountain cliffs, where the river Cetina flows into the Adriatic sea, ideal for river rafting on the streams of the Cetina river. Overnight in port.
Departure for our last destination, the town of Split, a city under UNESCO protection famous for its old city center, 1700 year old Diocletian's palace. Upon arrival we recommend to join our guided tour of Split with an English speaking guide. Overnight in Split.
After an early breakfast say goodbye to the crew and all your new friends!
