Embark in time to leave Split Harbour at 13:00h and cruise along the Dalmatian coast towards Makarska whilst enjoying your lunch. Afternoon swim at one of the wonderful beaches. From there, those feeling adventurous can join our optional river rafting on the streams of the Cetina River or adrenaline pumping zipline over Cetina River canyon and meet the ship again in Makarska. Climb up to the old fortress above the town or just take a walk through the old town of Omiš and discover the glorious long history through the many historical monuments. Overnight in Makarska, the famous tourist destination with many restaurants and bars and a beautiful promenade along the famous beach. Enjoy the magic of Makarska Riviera and be sure to take a walk along the city streets – with many churches and other cultural sites.
Continue our cruise towards the island of Brač, more precisely to the town of Bol, known for its famous Zlatni Rat beach (Golden horn), a natural phenomenon with a very unusual shape. After a swimming break 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 a UNESCO world heritage site.

After lunch we stop for swimming, relaxing and refreshment in clear, crystal blue sea at the nearby Pakleni Islands. We will arrive in Hvar in the afternoon in time for some sightseeing of this extraordinary town. Hvar offers many cultural and historical sites (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.
Early in the morning we cruise towards to little Biševo Island to visit the Blue Cave, a magnificent natural phenomenon. Our visit will depend on sea conditions. We continue towards Vis off limits to the public for many years until recently as it was a strategic naval harbour. Because of its isolation, Vis has a special charm ‘the Mediterranean as it once was’ which makes it really interesting to see. Overnight in 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 palace, city museum or simply take a walk enjoying the view of beautiful ''Villae Rusticae'' situated along the coast.
During breakfast we depart to Korčula, the birthplace of famous explorer Marco Polo. Surrounded by mediaeval walls, Korčula resembles a miniature Dubrovnik when approached from the sea. It has more legends, tales and monuments than you will find anywhere else along this coast. Today, Korčula is the only place in the world where the Spanish mediaeval knight's game – Moreška is still performed. Upon arrival enjoy a walk through the streets of the old town built in the shape of a fish bone. Enjoy the numerous konobas /taverns, restaurants, cocktail bars or night-club located within and around the city walls. Overnight in port.
We continue cruising towards one of the greenest Adriatic islands – the island of Mljet, and its National Park. Free time to enjoy the beauties of the National Park (two salt lakes connected by a narrow channel to the sea, a boat ride to the St Mary Isle in the Great Lake, where the old church and monastery are situated. Cycling around or swimming in the lakes is permitted. We continue our cruise towards Šipan, part of Elaphiti islands near Dubrovnik, or towards Slano on the coastline, both are small fishermen's villages where we will overnight in the port.
Early in the morning we depart towards our final destination – a true pearl of the Adriatic. After lunch and a short swim stop, we arrive in Dubrovnik followed by an optional cable car ride up to Srđ mountain for spectacular views of the old town. We recommend a stroll along the city walls, 1940 metres in length with magnificent views of the old town of Dubrovnik and the surrounding islands. Overnight in the harbour.
