Welcome to Split! At 13.00hrs we will depart from the Split harbour, cruising south towards Makarska Riviera. Aboard our vessel, you’ll enjoy a great meal while getting to know your fellow passengers. Afterwards, we’ll stop in a beautiful bay for a swim. Once we reach Makarska, you’ll have the chance to explore everything this lively town has to offer. With stunning beaches and exciting nightlife, there’s something for everyone here. If you’re looking for a place to watch the sunset, be sure to walk to Sveti Petar lighthouse. (L)

First, you’ll head to one of the pretty bays on the Pelajesac Peninsula for a swim. Then, enjoy a delicious lunch before making your way to the beautiful island of Mljet. According to legend, Odysseus believed that Mljet was the most seductive of the Adriatic islands. This enchanting island has been attracting visitors for centuries. Upon arriving, you will have the opportunity to explore the magnificent Mljet National Park. It’s easy to get around by walking or by renting a bike – perfect for enjoying a swim or checking out the lovely church and monastery on St Mary’s island. (B, L)

After breakfast, we continue our cruise to the city of Dubrovnik. This magnificent walled city is a visual feast of history, beauty, and culture. Start your exploration with a guided walking tour of the city. The highlight is the Old Town which has remained unchanged since the 13th century. Walk along the Stradun, the city’s main thoroughfare and take a cable car ride up to Srd Mountain for stunning views of Dubrovnik’s old town. In the evening, enjoy this amazing city at your leisure.

A late morning departure from Dubrovnik allows for some further exploration of the city.

Today we will continue sailing to the lovely island of Korcula. Korcula is a paradise on earth, and it is also the birthplace of the famous explorer Marco Polo. The town of Korcula, with its impressive fortress and city walls, is sure to impress visitors. After arriving in the late afternoon, join a guided tour to learn about the many legends and monuments on the island. You will then have free time to explore on your own.

Today we’ll leave early for a swim in the Pakleni Islands, followed by lunch. In the late afternoon, we’ll arrive in Hvar Town on the Croatian island of Hvar. This unique town is famous for its lavender fields and vineyards. It’s also one of Croatia’s most popular islands and a regular meeting point for the international jet set.
