Discover Croatian islands

Route: Split - Split

Day 1: Saturday / SPLIT, STOBREČ - BRAČ, MILNA
Check in starts at 4 PM in a port of Stobreč, a small and quite place just 5 km away from Split centre. After embarkation you`ll have enough time to make yourself at home and meet other guests and a crew. Before departure, you will be served with a traditional welcome drink. After a short navigation we come to Milna where we`re going to spend our first night on board enjoying a homemade meal and company.
Milna is located on the western part of the island of Brač and it is an administrative centre of the island. It is well known for its beautiful bay where even Diocletian`s ships used to find a safe harbour during the building of his magnificent palace in Split.

Day 2: Sunday / BRAČ, MILNA - VIS
In the morning we sail for Vis - the furthest island of the Central Dalmatian archipelago. It is especially well known for its cultural and historical heritage, but also for its natural beauties. Even the Greek writer Agatharchides in his scripts praised wines from Vis as being the best he had ever tasted, in comparison to other sorts he had tried. Their most autochthonous wine is most certainly Vugava that you can try in numerous restaurants and cellars all around the island.

Day 3: Monday / VIS - HVAR
Our cruise continues towards Pakleni otoci ('The Hell Islands'). It is a group of small islands in front of the town of Hvar. It is a unique and the most recognizable natural beauty of the island of Hvar. In the afternoon or in the evening (depending on your preferences) transfer by dinghy will be organized for you to the town of Hvar. You will have to take a taxi-boat in the harbour to get back to the yacht, on which you will get additional information from your captain.
Hvar is a beautiful Dalmatian town of wild nightlife and numerous excellent restaurants specialised in local cuisine, as well as in exotic specialties. To those who enjoy the nightlife the town guaranties a great time in bars and coffee shops where many world famous celebrities enjoy themselves each year. Those who prefer more relaxing activities will be swept away with its rich history that goes back to prehistoric times, more exactly to the Iron Age when the Illyrians built their hill-fort and started a development of this Dalmatian pearl, with its cultural heritage amongst which the most prominent is the first public theatre in Europe, opened in 1612.

Day 4: Tuesday / HVAR - KORČULA
We continue our cruise towards the island of Korčula. The island was inhabited in prehistory which is proven by the finds in Vela Spila that represent the first evidence of Palaeolithic ceramic art at the end of the last Ice Age. According to a legend the island was also a home to the Trojan hero Antenor in the 12th century BC who is also known as the founder of Padua. After a reign of the Greeks, the Illyrians and the Romans, from the 10th century Korčula was under the authority of the Venetian Republic which has left a great trace especially in architecture of the town of Korčula. But in spite of all that the town is still most famous as the birthplace of Marco Polo, who was probably born here in 1254. The reminders of him can be found on every angle of this town, including the very interesting museum of Marco Polo, a place you must not skip when visiting this beautiful Dalmatian town. Make the best of the day, explore the town and enjoy gastronomic specialties offered in many small restaurants in the harbour.

Our next stop is the peninsula Pelješac. Afternoon is free for your own activities, whether you`re going to spend it in sightseeing, swimming or just lying in the sun with a good book and a cold drink. This night is dedicated to our captain and in his name you`re going to be served the Captain`s dinner with traditional Dalmatian dishes. We`re spending the night in Lovište.
Lovište is a small town located in one of the most beautiful bays of Pelješac. It represents an ideal place for swimming. For its climate, with over 3000 sun hours a year, and the warmth of its sea which, in the main bay, is always warmer than the rest of the Adriatic.

Day 6: Thursday / PELJEŠAC – HVAR, JELSA
Our cruise continues towards Hvar but this time we shall visit the other side of the island - town Jelsa. Along the way we'll have a few breakpoints for swimming and sunbathing in different bays. Evening is free for your own activities.
Jelsa is a small town situated in a bay on the northern part of the island of Hvar, protected by two highest peaks of the island - St. Nicolas on the west and Hum on the east. It is divided in two parts - Vela Banda on the south coast and Mala Banda on the north. It is an important tourist centre with long tradition in tourism (the oldest hotel ‘Jadran’ was built in 1911). It is especially interesting to the lovers of good wine since it is well known for its quality sorts of red wine like Plavac Barrique, Ivan Dolac, Faros...

In the morning we continue our cruising towards Bol, a small town on the southern coast of the island of Brač, where you`ll have a chance to swim and sunbath on the most beautiful Adriatic beach - Zlatni Rat (the Golden Horn). It`s a beautiful gravel beach of recognizable white colour and shape that keeps changing its position, depending on tide, currents and winds. The beach is surrounded by lavish pine forest where you can see the remains of a Roman Villa Rustica with a pool, while the Horn itself is a protected geomorphologic phenomenon. In the afternoon we continue our cruise towards Stobreč, our final destination. We shall spend our last night on board in marina Stobreč.

Day 8: Saturday / SPLIT, STOBREČ
We have come to the moment when we have to say goodbye to this fabulous gulet, the crew and, hopefully, new friends you have acquainted in these 7 days. Check out is by 9 AM.
After check out you can visit, as we like to say, the most beautiful city in the world - Split! With its 1700 years-long history it offers so many things to see to its visitors, from cultural and historical heritage to entertainment. The place you mustn`t, and can`t, avoid in Split is definitively Diocletian`s Palace. Built in the 3rd century it was created as a summer residence for the Roman emperor Diocletian, but with time the palace has become a city which today is the administrative, cultural and trade centre of Split - Dalmatian County and second largest city in Croatia. The Palace itself was included in UNESCO`s World Heritage List in 1979. Apart from the Palace there are many other things to see in Split like the Diocletian`s substructures (cellars), the smallest and the oldest cathedral in the world - St. Duje`s Cathedral (the patron saint), numerous squares, museums, galleries, city park-forest Marjan... An interesting stop would be the statue of Grgur Ninski whose big toe you must touch and make a wish to make it come true.

For any additional questions you might have during the cruise you can turn to the captain or any other crewmember, who are always at your disposal.

We wish you an unforgettable cruising experience!
