About this trip

Sparkling seas, white sands, historical hotspots, Croatia is the Mediterranean jewel that has it all. And there's no better way to experience this paradise than by island hopping your way from beach to beautiful bay. From the ancient hamlets of Hvar island and the Venetian architecture of Korcula to Dubrovnik’s iconic Old Town, we'll cruise along the Adriatic on our very own premium, air-conditioned sail-boat, soaking up all those rays while we drift lazily under the cloudless skies. Bliss.

DAY 1 - Split to Hvar

Split

This morning we'll meet in Split, boarding our boat with, you guessed it, boat loads of enthusiasm.

Hvar

After our first stint at sea we’ll arrive in the glamorous playground of Hvar, where big shiny boats meet grand historic architecture. Once you've taken in the sites, you will dine alfresco on board, it’s a tough day in paradise.

  • Orientation of Hvar including the UNESCO World Heritage, Stari Grad

DAY 2 - Hvar to Korčula

Hvar

Korčula may sit incredibly close to the mainland of Croatia but it's an island all of its own, which means we'll be slipping into island vibes accordingly.

Korčula

Hidden bars, peachy sunsets & cobbled streets by the beach, our appreciation for this country will be skyrocketing.

Stay

Premium Sail boat with included AC

INCLUDED EXPERIENCES

  • Orientation of the medieval fortified old town of Korčula

FREE TIME ADD-ONS

    Kuna 115

DAY 3 - Korcula to Dubrovnik

Korčula

This morning we'll wake up in beautiful Korčula but we'll then be heading off to Dubrovnik. In the words of Bernard Shaw, acclaimed socialist & playwright, "those that seek paradise on earth should seek it in Dubrovnik." You heard the man - let's do this!

Dubrovnik

So here we are, paradise on earth. Rugged cliffs, seas that beg a dip, and buildings filled with stories and history.  Opt in for a guided city tour and leave armed with the knowledge to pick out a waterside rock bar where you can swim and indulge 'til your heart's content.  To take it all in, you can wander along the 2-kilometres of old town walls or hike to the top of Mt Srd. Dinner at a local restaurant followed by some party vibes at the city's incredible array of clubs will complete things just perfectly.

    Kuna 50

DAY 4 - Dubrovnik

Dubrovnik

The city of Dubrovnik is so much more than just a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a Game of Thrones location - not that either of those claims to fame are even mildly mediocre. Visit Dubrovnik's Old Town, The Minceta Tower and Fortress Lovrijenac - otherwise known as GoT's King's Landing, entrance to the House of the Undying and The Red Keep.  Or grab a kayak and view the maginificant city walls from the turquiose sea.

DAY 5 - Dubrovnik to Trstenik

Dubrovnik

Don't hate on us for dragging you away from Dubrovnik. We wouldn't do it unless we knew about another paradise waiting just around the corner...

Trstenik

It will be full blown euphoria this morning as we sail past the palms, cypresses, olive trees, citrus plantations and colourful reefs of the Elaphite Islands. As the sun sets we'll dock at the unspoiled village of Trstenik where we can look back on the Korcula archipelago with awe. All enjoyed over an optional Captain's dinner and a night of ship shenanigans.

    150 Kuna

DAY 6 - Trstenik to Makarska

Trstenik

After the peace and tranquillity of Trstenik, it’s time to head back to the mainland for more action.

Makarska

After a spot of swimming we’ll arrive in Makarska where we’ll be blessed by the beautiful Biokovo mountains and a long stretch of beach ready to be enjoyed.

Stay

Premium Sail boat with included AC

DAY 7 - Makarska to Split

Makarska

With one night left of the Mediterranean high life, we'll sail back to our starting point of Split.

Split

Now contented by our time at sea, we can relax & soak up the Roman heritage of this atmospheric city, revel in more Game of Thrones' filming locations and indulge in a final optional dinner in the heart of the historic city.

There you have it, the astonishing beauty of Croatia and its cluster of islands. You probably always imagined you'd be blown away by it, but the new squad of life-long pals will be the real surprise.
