DAY 1 – SATURDAY – DUBROVNIK (D)
You can board whenever you like and enter your cabin at 1300hrs. If you arrive in the morning, we suggest that you drop off your luggage and head out to get your first glimpses of the stunning Pearl of the Adriatic – perhaps starting with a stroll around the harbour admiring the yachts, before finishing up with a light walk around the top of the medieval city walls. In the evening we’ll host a welcome meeting followed by a dinner at 1930hrs, which will be a great opportunity for you to meet with the captain, crew and your fellow passengers.
DAY 2 – SUNDAY – DUBROVNIK – SLANO (B,L)
Join our tour of Dubrovnik and admire the breathtaking scenery from the hills. From here you can get a real feel for the town, taking in the iconic terracotta-red rooftops and the stunning blue tones of the Adriatic. Then join a guided walking tour of the UNESCO-listed old town of Dubrovnik. Admire the baroque church of St. Blaise, the renaissance Sponza Palace and the gothic Rector’s Palace, whose arched entrance is reminiscent of the architecture of Venice.
Then we set sail towards Šipan Island and dock in the idyllic fishing village of Šipanska Luka (weather pending) or we’ll head to the picturesque dock of Slano.
DAY 3 – MONDAY - SLANO – MLJET NATIONAL PARK (B,L,D)
Today we sail to the most forested island in the Adriatic and one of the most beautiful parts of the Mediterranean.
We visit the island of Mljet for a tour of the stunning Mljet National Park where we’ll visit the Islet of St. Mary, home to a 12th century monastery. Take a refreshing swim before we explore a little more of the park’s flora or even rent a kayak for a pre-lunch row.
Mljet is also well known for its 2 salted lakes located at the north end of the island . Captain’s dinner is tonight.
DAY 4 – TUESDAY - MLJET - KORČULA (B,L)
We set sail to the island of Korcula, rich in vineyards, olive groves and small villages with numerous bays and coves. We take a swim stop in one of the peaceful bays, perfect to enjoy the beautifu lush vegetation and crystal clear sea. Lunch on board.
During the afternoon we arrive in Korčula. This medieval ”little Dubrovnik”, said to be the birthplace of Marco Polo and we will take an interesting guided tour along its winding streets. Sip a glass of local wine or coffee at an outdoor cafe, take a dip in the sea or just continue walking the ancient streets.
DAY 5 – WEDNESDAY - KORCULA - VIS (B,L)
Sail towards intoxicating shores of Vis Island. The island has mostly withstood modern development due to its time spent as a military zone and so offers lush island interiors, rustic beaches and charming well-preserved fishing villages. Whilst on Vis we suggest a swim in the dreamy Stiniva bay. Spend the afternoon in charming Vis Town: walk along the seafront promenade and explore the town’s intriguing history via its collection of architecture, which includes the remains of a Greek cemetery, Roman baths, an English fortress and a selection of attractive houses and churches that span the Venetian and Austrian eras.
DAY 6 – THURSDAY - VIS - BLUE CAVE - HVAR (B,L)
We cruise to Bisevo to admire the magical Blue Cave (weather permitting) that can only be entered by boat and is a large chasm that has a natural opening that casts the cave in an ethereal blue light. Alternatively, we visit the WWII RAF Airport and the pretty fishing village of Komiža on Vis.
We continue cruising through the glittering seas of the Adriatic towards the super-chic island of Hvar. We’ll embark on a guided walking tour of the charming town’s historic attractions. After dusk we recommend that you sample the fantastic restaurants and bars along the chic harbour and the atmospheric old town.
DAY 7 – FRIDAY – HVAR - BOL/MILNA - SPLIT (B,L)
We sail towards Brač and the town of Bol where we’ll visit the famous Zlatni Rat beach, the iconic stretch of sand that reaches into the azure waters of the Adriatic.
We cruise on towards the ever-enchanting city of Split on the Dalmatian coastline. You’ll join the guided tour through the cobbled streets, palatial piazzas and breath-taking architecture of the enormous, UNESCO-listed Diocletian’s Palace – where you’ll see almost two thousand years of history and culture told through the medium of architecture.
Then explore this lovely historical town at your own pace. There’s a multitude of beaches to explore, a chic marble-lined seafront promenade filled with bars and restaurants, and dazzling views from atop the bell tower of the Sveti Duje Cathedral in the old town. Overnight in Spit.
DAY 8 – SATURDAY – SPLIT (B)
