The boat will stay in Split for the first night, which gives you the opportunity to explore the city and take in the Ultra Music Festival which will be taking place in Split.
3Mondays: SPLIT - MAKARSKA
We will sail along the Dalmatian coast down to the Makarska Riviera. We spend the afternoon swimming at one of the beautiful beaches on the Riviera. Overnight in the port of Makarska, one of the most attractive resorts on the Croatian coast. Makarska nestles under the massive peaks of the Biokovo mountain range with Mt Jure the highest seaside peak on the Mediterranean. For nightlife options, there is the cocktail bar Marineta and for late night takers there is the infamous club "Deep" a natural cave next to the sea which rocks into the wee hours.
4Tuesdays: MAKARSKA - STARI GRAD
We sail to the island of Hvar on Tuesday morning. Hvar is the longest island in the Adriatic. We will moor up in the port of Stari Grad. Situated on the northern side of the island, Stari Grad is the oldest town in Croatia and boasts an attractive network of old narrow streets and small squares around the harbour.
5Wednesdays: STARI GRAD - VIS
Early in the morning and subject to weather conditions (which are normally excellent), we will make our way across to the island of Vis, one of the most outer-lying islands on the Dalmatian coast. Vis has been used over the centuries as a strategic military port and saw action by the Allied military through WWII against Italy and the Germans. It has only recently been open to commercial tourism and still retains a lot of charm as it not frequently visited due to its location.
Today it is an idyllic island which is most famous for the outer-lying Blue Cave, an island cave system accessible only by boat. The blue turquoise water and refracted light into the cave make for exciting and amazing photo opportunities.
If by chance the weather and wind isn't suitable to visit Vis, then an alternative stop will be made on the itinerary. The captain reserves the right to amend this as his number one priority is always safety.
6Thursdays: VIS - HVAR
We'll leave Vis in the early morning. Lunch is followed by a swim at one of the hidden bays heading towards Hvar Town. Hvar is famous in Croatia for its super-yachts and celebrity status. Climb the hill to explore the 7th century fort ruins overlooking the harbour, before checking out the famous Hvar nightlife, with clubs such as Carpe Diem and Nautica Bar.
*Please note: the docking time in Hvar can be early evening in peak season due to port authority restrictions. However, if guests would like to arrive earlier, water taxi transfers can be arranged for 3 Euros per person (payable locally).
7Fridays: HVAR- SPLIT
From Hvar, we will start our journey back to Split where the last night will be. On our way to Split there will be another swim-break in one of the many bays. Enjoy the view of the Split Riviera as we arrive into Split late afternoon. Split is a city under UNESCO protection that belongs not only to Croatians, but also to you, as it is a part of its World Heritage status. Here we find an abundance of Roman architecture - of special interest is the Diocletian Palace.
Early breakfast after which it is time to say goodbye to the crew and all your new friends or join one of our Med Experience trips and explore more of Croatia, Albania and Greece! Note: It is possible for you to leave as early as needed on Saturday morning to catch flights as the boats will be in port by Friday night.
