Itinerary

Day 1, Saturday

Boarding in Trogir between 11:30 AM and 1:00 PM. Shortly after we release our ropes we stop in one of bays on Island Ciovo where we have a chance to take our first swimming break. We sail further towards Makarska Riviera known for its beautiful pebbled beaches which stretch like a row of shiny white pearls separated by small rocks. We stay the night in Brela, Baska Voda or Makarska. Guests who will have afternoon arrival that day will be taken from the airport to Makarska Riviera.

Day 2, Sunday

We pass near the islands of Brac and Hvar and sail towards Peljesac, famous for its excellent red wine origin of red Zinfandel. After swimming break in one of Peljesac bay, we head towards Pomena bay on the island Mljet. One part of the island was proclaimed a National Park - two salt lakes (there is a small islet on the bigger lake with an ancient monastery) which are connected to sea by one narrow canal. You have the possibility to visit National Park (visit includes boat ride to the convent, price approximately $20 payable at the park entrance). We recommend salt lake swimming where temperature is always 4 F higher than sea temperature.

Day 3, Monday

Today we leave Mljet and take our route in direction of the south. After swimming break on Elafit islands, we arrive in Dubrovnik around 4 PM. The rest of day is at your disposal in order to discover and enjoy this unique town. Take a walk on Stradun and town walls and visit numerous sights.

Day 4, Tuesday

Dubrovnik is called "Pearl of the Adriatic" for a good reason. In time of its uplift in the Middle Ages it belonged to one of the most important economic and cultural centers of the Mediterranean. Today it is open to all visitors as unique open air museum with infinite sights. You will have enough time to explore the old town. There is possibility of motor sailboat excursion around impressive town walls (surely a unique event and not just for photo amateurs) and than to small town Cavtat which lies on the Southernmost part of Croatian coast. Excursion price approximately $29 per person (payable at the excursion boat); we kindly ask for your understanding because the excursion is only possible if all guests agree to take it. Overnight stay in a beautiful place Slano, a picturesque fishermen's place which lays North of Dubrovnik in an isolated bay. Before we stop in Slano, we anchor in a bay in Elafiti islands for swimming. Alternative is overnight stay in a fishermen's place on the island of Sipan.

Day 5, Wednesday

We head towards North, more accurately the island of Korcula. Korcula has one of the most beautiful old towns in Dalmatia and is often called "Little Dubrovnik" due to its fortification walls. In the antique time the island was called "Black Island" because of its pine forests which are spread across it. We will spend the night in birthplace of a famous seaman and explorer Marko Polo.

Day 6, Thursday

Today we sail from Korcula to Hvar, an island famous for its lavender fields, capital of the same named island lies beneath a fortress with a fantastic view over Pakleni islands. There is a tourist guide waiting for us on Hvar who will take us sightseeing. Sometimes, it is possible for us not to find a mooring spot due to numerous yachts and ships in Hvar port in which case the captain will decide whether we will stay the night in Hvar or some of nearby bays.

Day 7, Friday

We sail along Brac and anchor in a bay on Solta for a swim after which we say goodbye to Dalmatian islands and return to starting port of our trip, Trogir, town under the auspices of UNESCO also called "town museum". It is a beautiful experience to walk through the labyrinth of streets in the afternoon or evening, admire the walls, defending towers, churches, frescoes and ceilings or just here and there take a glimpse of the old yards.

Day 8, Saturday

Departure after breakfast approximately at 9 am.
