DAY 2 / SUNDAY : DUBROVNIK – SIPAN ISLAND OR SLANO
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 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 “The Pearl of the Adriatic”. Return coach transfer is scheduled between 2 pm and 4 pm (time to be conﬁrmed on the spot). Then we’ll sail out for the Island of Sipan where we’ll anchor in a peaceful fishermen`s village of Šipanska Luka or in Slano, located on the mainland. 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.
If we stay in Slano, for all who are interested we can organize an optional excursion to Ston, a fortified town famous for 5- kilometer long walls, old saltwork, and oysters/mussels farm.
This night we’ll have dinner on board.

DAY 3 / MONDAY: SIPAN ISLAND OR SLANO – MLJET NATIONAL PARK – KORCULA
Our day starts with a morning departure towards Mljet National Park. When we arrive there, you’ll have just enough time to explore the 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. The entrance fee to Mljet National Park is included. With lunch served on board, we’ll sail for the Island of Korčula, arriving there in the afternoon. The town of Korcula 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 time. Our English-speaking guide will take you for a tour of Korcula Town, through its narrow and cobbled streets and its rich history. You’ll have the rest of the evening free to enjoy dining at one of the local restaurants of your choice.

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 at 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. Overnight in Vis Town, (B,L)
Optional late afternoon Vis Island Tour excursion
We start our tour of Vis, our coach will follow the old road, which rises above the town and overlooks the bay. After that, we descend to the fields and drive through vineyards and olive groves passing by a former allied airport from WWII and then we descend down to Komiza. Free time in Komiza, a stunning fishermen’s village to have dinner in one of the cozy restaurants.
Return to a boat overnight.
Reservations and payment on the spot.
DAY 5 / WEDNESDAY: VIS – BISEVO BLUE CAVE – HVAR
Today we’ll cruise to the Island of BiSevo and its Blue cave, one of the most famous natural attractions 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 the 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.
In case we can’t enter Blue Cave due to such sea conditions, you will get a full ticket refund. 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 for international jet setters. 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 way of life, along with a few island peculiarities, such as the traditional farming of lavender. Afterward, you’ll have an evening on your own to explore and dine in one of numerous family-owned restaurants and taverns.
Overnight in Hvar Historical Town, (B,L)
DAY 6 / THURSDAY: 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 the 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 on a city tour of Trogir. Afterward, you’ll have some time on your own, free to explore. This evening we’ll have Captain’s Dinner on board, along with some live music entertainment.

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.
