Croatia Dalmatian Coastal Cruise

Step aboard your yacht cruiser for an unforgettable cruise experience along the Dalmatian coast. This dazzling part of the world is made up of hundreds of islands and reefs, and the best way to see them is from this deluxe ship. Not only do we cruise to the most beautiful and exciting places, including overnight stops in Dubrovnik, Split and Hvar, along the way we drop anchor so that you can take a dip in the crystal-clear waters while enjoying panoramic views of this spectacular coastline. And with an intimate and relaxed setting to enjoy onboard, what more could you wish for?

Day 1: UK – Split
We fly to Split and are transferred to Split harbour. Here, we settle aboard our ship and enjoy dinner and a relaxing evening onboard.

Day 2: Split - Makarska
This morning we sail along the Dalmatian coast to Makarska. After lunch enjoy a swim at one of the amazing beaches. We spend the evening docked in Makarska with many restaurants, bars and a promenade that runs along the beautiful beach, be sure to venture into the city streets and see churches and other cultural sites along the way.

Day 3: Makarska – Brač – Hvar
This morning we sail to the Island of Brač and the town of Bol, known for its famous Golden Horn beach. We stop here for a swim and lunch before cruising to Hvar Island, a favourite destination for jet setters. After lunch we stop for a swim in the crystal-clear waters at the Pakleni islands before continuing to Hvar. We have an included guided tour of this extraordinary town. The Renaissance cathedral with its original tower is a special highlight, along with the beautiful gothic palaces. There are also plenty of restaurants, bars and cafés to choose from as you wander along the winding marble streets and the main square.

Day 4: Hvar – Blue caves - Vis
Early in the morning we cruise to the small island of Bisevo where you can join our optional visit to the Blue Cave, which is only accessible via a small boat. We then continue cruising towards the unspoilt island of Vis, which was a strategic navy harbour due to its geographical position and has only recently opened to the public. We stay overnight in Vis town on the north of the island. You can visit the remains of the Roman thermal baths, the city museum, take a walk enjoying the beautiful views along the coast or simply relax at one of the cafes and bars that spill into the squares along the waterfront.

Day 5: Vis - Korčula
During breakfast we depart towards Korčula, the birthplace of the famous explorer and adventurer Marco Polo. Surrounded by ancient walls and fortified bastions, Korčula is very well preserved with its layout and structure dating back to 13th century. You can join an optional guided walking tour or explore at your own pace. We stay here overnight.

Day 6: Korčula – Mljet – Šipan
We continue cruising towards the greenest Adriatic island – Mljet, where you are free to spend time in the National park, and see two salt lakes that are connected by a narrow channel to the sea. We continue cruising to part of the Elaphite Islands Šipan or Slona on the coastline, both are small fishing villages. Tonight we enjoy our Captain’s dinner on board.

Day 7: Šipan or Slona - Dubrovnik
Early morning we cruise for the final time to Dubrovnik. After lunch we have a short swim stop before arriving in Dubrovnik which is widely regarded as the pearl of the Adriatic and was described by George Bernard Shaw as “heaven on earth”. Join our guided tour followed by an optional cable car ride up to Srd mountain for spectacular views of the old town. Make sure you take a walk along the city walls, 1940 metres in length with magnificent views of the old town.
