DAY 2 • SUNDAY: DUBROVNIK – ŠIPAN ISLAND OR SLANO
After breakfast our English speaking guide and coach will come to the pier. We’ll visit the historical centre of Dubrovnik, the famous city enlisted as UNESCO’s World Heritage Site, where your guide will show you the most interesting sights of Dubrovnik. After the city tour you’ll be left on your own to explore around, visit City Walls or take a scenic cable car to the top of Mount Srđ with its stunning 360° vista. On this day, we’ll not have lunch on board, so you can spend more time in Dubrovnik and see why this city was deservedly nicknamed Pearl of the Adriatic.
Return coach transfer is scheduled between 3pm and 4pm (time to be confirmed on the spot). Then we’ll sail out for the Island of Šipan where we’ll anchor in a picturesque and peaceful fishermen’s village of Šipanska Luka. In case dock and lock schedules or weather conditions prevent us from anchoring in Šipanska Luka we’ll cruise to Slano, located on the mainland.
This night we’ll have dinner on board.

DAY 3 • MONDAY : ŠIPAN ISLAND OR SLANO – MLJET NATIONAL PARK – KORČULA
Our day starts with a morning departure towards Mljet National Park. When we arrive there, you’ll have just enough time to explore park, walk around the Great and Small Lake, visit the Islet of St. Mary with its Benedictine Monastery from the 12th century and, of course, take a swim in the heart of National Park. Entrance fees to Mljet National Park are included. With lunch served on board, we’ll sail for the Island of Korčula, arriving there in the afternoon. Town of Korčula is the island’s main settlement and is known as the birthplace of Marco Polo, one of the world’s most famous explorers of all times. Our English speaking guide will take you for a tour of Korčula Town, through its narrow and cobbled streets and its rich history. You’ll have rest of the evening free to enjoy dining at one of the local restaurants of your choice.

DAY 4 • TUESDAY : KORČULA – VIS
In the morning we’ll cruise to the Island of Vis, with lunch on board and a swim stop en route. Arrival to Vis is scheduled for the afternoon. Compared to other Adriatic islands, Vis is rather unique. Being an important strategic military stronghold for centuries, Vis was spared the excessive tourist development and thus retained its unspoilt beaches, ecological agriculture and traditional architecture.
Enjoy afternoon, exploring the town of Vis, its picturesque stone streets, pristine beaches and fine taverns.
Overnight in Vis Town, (B,L)
DAY 5 • WEDNESDAY: VIS – BIŠEVO BLUE CAVE – HVAR
Today we’ll cruise to the Island of Biševo and its Blue cave, one of the most famous natural attractions in whole of the Adriatic Sea. Blue Cave is a water-logged cave that can be approached only by boat. Sunbeams penetrating through its submarine opening get reflected from the white bottom floor, creating a magical effect of deep aquamarine and shiny silver light, mystifying Cave’s visitors. However, sometimes high waves prevent the entrance to Blue Cave, which is something we shall not know before the time designated for our visit.
If that happens, we can provide an alternative half-day tour of Vis Island and its WWII RAF Airport, along with Komiža – a peculiarly beautiful town boasting the longest fishing tradition on East Adriatic.
After a swim stop and lunch we’ll continue cruising along many coves and bays, towards Hvar, the sunniest Croatian island. Hvar is one of the country’s most attractive tourist destinations and a meeting point of international jetsetters. Upon our arrival to Hvar, a local English speaking guide will walk you through this unique city, introducing you to its millennia-long history, culture and a way of life, along with few island’s peculiarities, such as the traditional farming of lavender. Afterwards, you’ll have an evening on your own to explore and dine in one of numerous family owned restaurants and taverns.

DAY 6 • TUESDAY : HVAR – BOL – TROGIR
In the morning we’ll cruise towards Bol, a place best known for its beach of Zlatni Rat (Golden Cape), which regularly hits the top lists of the most beautiful European beaches. Once we stop in Bol, you can enjoy simple pleasures such as taking a walk around this nice little Dalmatian town, perhaps having a cup of coffee or a swim, until lunch is served on board.
After lunch we’ll continue cruising towards Trogir, another city inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage list, arriving there during afternoon. This town – museum is literally packed with palaces, churches, monasteries and towers, the main attraction being the Cathedral of St. Lawrence, probably the finest example of sacral architecture in Croatia.
A professional English speaking guide will take us for a city tour of Trogir. Afterwards, you’ll have some time on your own, free to explore.
On this evening we’ll have Captain’s Dinner on board, along with some live music entertainment.

DAY 7 • FRIDAY : TROGIR – SPLIT

Split is the second largest urban centre in Croatia and the seat of the Split-Dalmatia County. Over 1700 years old, Split abounds with cultural and historical sights, lots of them situated within the Split’s historical nucleus which has been inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List ever since 1979.
