After breakfast our English speaking guide and coach will come to the pier. After an organized panoramic drive and photo stop of breath-taking scenery at a hill above Dubrovnik we will arrive to 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 city tour you will be left on your own to explore the city, visit City Walls or take the cable car to the top of the Mount Srđ.

DAY 4 • TUESDAY KORČULA – VIS
Morning cruise to Vis Island where we expected to come after lunch with swim stop. Vis is a pearl among Croatian Adriatic islands, left untouched by the development of tourism for so many years – due to its strategic location on the open sea, it served as a military zone for many years.
Beautiful beaches, and preserved nature, ecological agriculture and preserved traditional architecture are unique advantages of this unique Croatian island where we will spend afternoon.
Overnight in Vis Town, (B,L)
DAY 5 • WEDNESDAY VIS – BIŠEVO BLUE CAVE – HVAR
Today is cruise to Island Bisevo with its Blue cave. The cave has its own natural entrance which is located below sea level, which required that it visitors dive deeply only to resurface into the cave’s mysterious blue depths. This natural phenomenon creates a magical effect of deep blue and shiny silver, mystifying her visitors.
However, sometimes High Waves prevent the entrance to Blue Cave, which is something we shall not know before the morning designated for our visit. If that happens, we can provide an alternative half-day tour of Vis Island with WWII RAF Airport, along with Komiža – a peculiarly beautiful town boasting the longest fishing tradition on East Adriatic.
After swimm stop and lunch we will continue cruising towards the sunniest island of Croatia – the island of Hvar, along of the many coves and bays on the way. Hvar is one of the most popular, very attractive tourist destinations and a meeting point for the international jet set.
Upon your afternoon arrival at Hvar, a local English speaking guide will walk you throughout the town introducing you to the history, culture and way of life on this island and explain how lavender was traditionally farmed on the Island of Hvar for centuries. Have an evening in Hvar free on your own to explore and dine around in one of numerous family owned restaurants.
Overnight in Hvar Historical Town, (B,L)
DAY 6 • TUESDAY HVAR – BOL – TROGIR
We start our day with morning departure towards Bol, said to have the best beach for swimming in Croatia named Zlatni Rat. (Golden cape). We will stop in Bol and enjoy this nice Dalmatian town for a walk, or to have a cup of coffee and take a swim till lunch is served on board. After lunch we will continue cruising towards Trogir, small town that is on the UNESCO’s List of World Cultural Heritage. In the afternoon you will arrive to this small town-museum, with its stone-houses, palaces, churches, monasteries, towers, walls and especially the main attraction in Trogir – the Cathedral of St. Lawrence, probably the finest example of sacral architecture in Croatia.
