Itinerary One Itinerary One
SPLIT
DAY 1 | Start

Split, a town on Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast, is known for its beaches and the fortresslike complex at its center, 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 shops, bars, cafes, cathedrals, hotels and several houses.

Check in is at 5pm at ACI Marina Split, where our base manager will be waiting to welcome you. While your yacht is being prepared for departure this is a good time to purchase any food, toiletries, or other supplies.

We would only recommend purchasing enough for the first day or two as there are plenty of stores at each destination to stock up on food during the week.

HVAR
DAY 1 | Overnight Stay

Set sail from Split and head towards Hvar - one of the most talked about destinations in Croatia. If you’ve never been before, it won’t take you long to understand why everyone loves it here. Hvar’s 2,000+ hours of sunshine each year, buzzing nightlife and spectacular fortress with breath-taking views (follow the footpath and take the climb - you will not be disappointed) make this a place you will never forget and sorely miss the moment you leave. Hvar is home to some of Croatia’s best nightlife, and you’ll discover no end of bars and clubs that will keep you out into the small hours.

Please Note:

  • You can dock in nearby Palmizana Bay if the marina in Hvar Town is full. It is a short water taxi ride away from Hvar, and is often used by travellers spending the night in Hvar. This is also a cheaper option with regards to docking fees than staying in the centre of Hvar itself.

Mooring

  • Harbours - approx 80 euros, you can pay in cash/card.
  • Mooring buoys - average 30-40 euros, cash only.
KORCULA
DAY 2 | Overnight Stay

Wave goodbye to Hvar island, but don’t feel too bad as you’ll see it again when you dock in Stari Grad later in the week. Korcula, your next destination, is something to get excited about. Korcula packs an incredible amount of history into such a small area, and the compact Old Town bears a striking resemblance to Dubrovnik. There are plenty of small cafes and restaurants to sample a freshly caught seafood dinner, alongside ample clubs and bars that fill with an electric atmosphere as the sun goes down. Korcula is famous for being the birthplace of Marco Polo (don’t argue with the locals on this!) and you can visit the Marco Polo museum in Korcula’s Old Town. All up, Korcula makes for an intriguing and memorable stay.

Vis used to be known as the “Forbidden Island” and was off limits to foreigners until May of 1992. Today, Vis has an exciting military history with plenty of defenses and bunkers to discover, and is growing into a vibrant tourist destination, despite only having opened up to travellers in the past 20 years. You can visit the Blue Caves with a local agency from Vis - speak to your skipper or base manager for a recommendation. Renting a bike or scooter is a great way to get around on Vis and really take in this delightfully scenic island, streaked with vineyards, charming villages, and sun-soaked mountains amongst its military scars.

Split has no shortage of restaurants, bars and clubs for every taste. If you haven’t already spent some time in Split, you should explore the Diocletian Palace area inside Split Old Town (it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is well worth a wander).

DAY 1 | Overnight Stay

Sail sail from Split and onto Supetar - the capital of Brac island. Supetar’s name is derived from St Peter, and was first used in 1423. Located on the northern side of Brac and surrounded by thick pine forest, Supetar is a great introduction to the beautiful Dalmatian coastline, and only a short hop from Split - so you can really make the most of your first night. If you would like to enjoy Croatian food at a local restaurant for your first night there are plenty of options in the town. Supetar has a population of a little over 3000 inhabitants, and is small enough that all sights can be reached by a leisurely walk. Supetar’s history goes back as far as the Roman colonisation which took place around 100BC, and there are many historical attractions like churches, quarries and museums to enjoy.

Mooring

  • Harbours - approx 80 euros, you can pay in cash/card.
  • Mooring buoys - average 30-40 euros, cash only.
VIS
DAY 2 | Overnight Stay

Move on from Supetar and enjoy stunning views of Brac and Hvar before reaching Vis. One of the most popular destinations in Dalmatia, it’s hard to believe that postcard perfect Vis island has such a long and rich military history. Here, you have a very unique opportunity to take in such beautiful scenery whilst learning about how until 1992 the whole island used to be a military base - you won’t believe the contrast. Formerly known as the “Forbidden Island” and off limits to foreigners, Vis has only been open to tourism for 20 years but is already a growing and vibrant destination that many wish to visit but even fewer have the chance. Vis’ history extends back as far as ancient times, when it was used by Stone Age settlers due to its strategic location for trade and navigation. Nowadays, you can explore the many fortresses, tunnels, and warehouses from the military period as these are now attractions for tourists. Alternatively you can hire a bike or scooter and explore Vis from the saddle - taking in the beautiful scenery along the way. Vis is famous for its wine production so make sure you sample some before you leave!

Please Note:

  • You can stop along the way at the Blaca Monastery on the other side of Brac island. The hermitage started out as a cave back in the 16th century, and now the monastery is set into the surrounding spectacular hillside. It’s a 30 minute hike to get up there, but the views alone are worth it. This is a real local secret and makes for an unforgettable few hours. You can go there en-route to Vis - if you have hired a skipper please speak to them if you wish to go.
  • Both Vis and Komiza/Blue Caves can be done in one day if you prefer to spend more time elsewhere on the islands (Hvar is a popular choice).

  • Harbours - approx 80 euros, you can pay in cash/card.
  • Mooring buoys - average 30-40 euros, cash only.
KOMIZA
DAY 3 | Overnight Stay

Leave Vis and sail around the island to Komiza. A small town on the southern edge of Vis island, Komiza is a small settlement set at the foot of a spectacular mountain range - its terracotta roofs and quaint harbour make for many gorgeous photos against such a beautiful backdrop. Komiza is the nearest town to the island of Bisevo, home to the spectacular natural phenomenon that is the Blue Caves. There are many local agencies in Komiza and Vis that offer trips to the Blue Caves and these are usually only 1-2 hours long. If you want to go to the Blue Caves, your skipper or base manager can recommend an agency. There are no shortage of things to do if you would rather stay on dry land, including dozens of military bunkers, bases, fortresses and museums. You can visit Tito’s Cave, which was Tito’s hiding place during the German raids of 1944. The cave offers rewarding views to those who make the climb.

Situated in the pine-covered Vicja Luka valley, you’ll fall so in love with its peaceful, scenic surroundings and pristine turquoise water that you’ll struggle to keep this one a secret.
