Split, Croatia

Split is well-known for the fortresslike complex at its centre, Diocletian's Palace, erected by the Roman emperor in the 4th century. Once home to thousands, its sprawling remains include more than 200 buildings. Within its white stone walls and under its courtyards and galleries are bars, shops, cafes, cathedrals, hotels and several houses.

Check-in at Split Port between 10.30am and 12.00pm (midday). Your ship will depart the harbour at 1pm, kicking off your island hopping adventure!

Please Note: Our Captains work hard to provide the best possible experience based on weather and port conditions. Our aim is to make sure you have an amazing week on your Sail Croatia cruise! In light of this, the itinerary and port locations may need to change during the week.

Hvar, Croatia
Day 1

Leaving Split behind, we'll have lunch onboard before stopping for a swim at one of the secluded bays en route to Hvar. Hvar is the longest island in the Adriatic and is famous for its super-yachts and celebrity status.

Climb the hill and explore the 16th Century Fortress ruins overlooking the harbour, before checking out the famous Hvar nightlife, which includes the likes of Nautica Bar, Hula Hula Bar and Carpe Diem.

Please Note: The docking time in Hvar Town can be early evening in peak season due to port authority restrictions. However, to arrive earlier, a water taxi transfer can be arranged for 4 Euros per person (payable locally).

Korcula, Croatia
Day 2

We depart Hvar early on day 2 and sail south to one of the bays near Loviste on the Peljesac peninsula, for a refreshing swim. We'll then continue on to Korcula, the birthplace of Marco Polo, where we will spend the night.

Today we will sail back up the Dalmatian coast to the Makarska Riviera. We'll spend the afternoon swimming at one of the beautiful bays along the way, before arriving into Makarska in the afternoon.

Tonight it’s time for the Blue & White Boat Party! Grab your finest linen outfit, boat shoes and chic vibes for a party on the top deck with your fellow ship mates! After the sun sets we’ll continue the party at Club Deep, a natural cave next to the sea hosting local and international DJ’s until well into the night.
