After breakfast, our English-speaking guide and coach will come to the pier. We’ll visit the historical center of Dubrovnik, the famous city enlisted as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, where our guide will show you the most interesting sights of Dubrovnik. After the city tour, you’ll be left on your own to explore and enjoy this city, known around the world as The Pearl of Adriatic. At 12:00 a.m. we’ll have a transfer back to the ship. Lunch will be served on board en route to Slano, located on the mainland with a swim stop on the way. Slano is one of the most picturesque places on the Dubrovnik Riviera, with beautiful beaches, dense pine forests, and olive groves, a long cultural tradition, and numerous historical monuments. For all who are interested, we will organize an optional excursion to Ston, the fortified town famous for 5-kilometre long walls, old saltwork and oysters/mussels farm. Reservations and payment on the spot.

DAY 3 / MONDAY: SLANO – NATIONAL PARK MLJET – KORCULA
This morning we`ll cruise to Mljet where you’ll be free to explore National Park (entrance fees are not included), walk around the Great and Small Lake, visit The Islet of St. Mary with its Benedictine Monastery dating from the 12th century and, of course, take a swim in the heart of this pristine National Park. Lunch will be served on board as we continue our cruise toward the Island of Korčula, where we shall arrive in the afternoon, docking in the Town of Korcula. This historic town is known as the birthplace of Marko Polo, one of the most famous world explorers of all time. Our English-speaking guide will do a Korcula City tour and walk us through the town’s charming narrow and cobbled streets. You’ll have the rest of the evening free to enjoy dining at one of the local restaurants of your choice.
Overnight in Korcula Historical Town, (B,L)
DAY 4 / TUESDAY: KORCULA – 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 unspoiled beaches, ecological agriculture, and traditional architecture. Enjoy the afternoon, exploring the town of Vis, its picturesque stone streets, pristine beaches and fine taverns. For all who are interested we will organize an optional military tour and Vis Island excursion, ending in Komiza, a stunning fishermen’s village to have dinner in one of the cozy restaurants. Reservations and payment on the spot.
Overnight in Vis Town, (B,L)
DAY 5 / WEDNESDAY: VIS – BISEVO BLUE CAVE – HVAR
We’ll start our day with a morning cruise towards the Island of Bisevo and its Blue Cave. Originally, the entrance to Blue Cave was located below sea level, which required visitors to dive deeply in order to resurface into the cave’s mysterious blue depths. Sunbeams penetrating through the cave’s submarine opening get reflected from the white bottom floor, coloring the cave aquamarine and objects in the water silver, creating a truly stunning and magical natural phenomenon.
However, at times high waves prevent the entrance to Blue Cave, which is something we shall not know before the morning designated for our visit. For this reason, entrance fees are paid on the spot – if we ‘’re all lucky enough to visit the cave!
After a swim stop and lunch, we’ll continue cruising along many idyllic coves and bays towards Hvar, the sunniest Croatian island. Hvar is one of the most popular and attractive Croatian tourist destinations and a meeting point for the international jet set.
Upon our afternoon arrival at Hvar, a local English-speaking guide will walk you through the town, introducing you to the island’s way of life, its rich history, and culture. You’ll learn how lavender was traditionally farmed on Hvar, for many centuries. Afterward, you’ll be free to enjoy your evening in Hvar, explore on your own, and dine in one of its numerous family-owned restaurants or taverns.
Overnight in Hvar Historical Town, (B,L)
DAY 6 / THURSDAY: HVAR – BOL – PUCISCA
We’ll start our day with a morning departure towards Bol. Bol is famous for having one of the finest European beaches, called Zlatni Rat (Golden Cape). As we stop in Bol, you can relax in this charming Dalmatian town. Have a walk, a cup of coffee, or a swim, until lunch is served on board. After lunch, we’ll continue cruising towards Pucisca, with refreshing swim stops en route and lunch served on board. Pucisca is the second biggest village on the island of Brac. Nowhere in the system of towns and villages in Dalmatia does terrain play such a compelling role as in Pucisca. Its spectacular irregularity of steep-sided natural harbor, authentic Mediterranean architecture, and rustic ambiance is simply unforgettable. The fjord-like inlet of Pucisca meets three narrow valleys that descend from the hills, joining the bay’s quiet and beautiful waters. Pucisca Quarry was exploited by Romans in antiquity, after which it was abandoned until its reopening in 1455. Stone from the Pucisca quarry was used to build limestone columns for the White House in Washington DC, Vienna Parliament, and many other famous buildings around the world. Pucisca is also home to the only Croatian Stonemasonry school. Its students carve sculptures from Brac limestone, applying traditional and unconventional tools that have been used here for centuries.
We shall spend a night in this very quiet town. Enjoy the nightfall, as it unifies the distinct features of Pucisca that have intrigued us so much in daylight.
Overnight in Pucisca, (B,L)
DAY 7 / FRIDAY: PUCISCA – OMIS – SPLIT
After breakfast, we’ll cruise across the Brac channel to Omis, an ancient town with city walls, fortresses, and stone churches. Omis is located at the delta of the Cetina River, with its wonderful beaches. For centuries, Omis was a stronghold of famous pirates, a symbol of retaliation, courage, and strength in the long historical fight against the Republic of Venice. After a relaxed walk in Omis, we’ll have lunch. During the afternoon hours, we’ll sail on towards Split, our last stop. Our English-speaking guide will do the afternoon Split City tour and walk us through the historical Diocletian Palace. The second-largest urban center in Croatia and the seat of the Split-Dalmatia County, Split boasts 1700 years of history. Since 1979 the historic center of Split has been inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage Site List. The town`s historical and cultural buildings are located inside the walls of the Diocletian Palace. After the city tour, you will be left on your own to explore Split and have an intimate farewell dinner on your own.
