Split – Day 1
Split, the old town is built around a sheltered harbor, sheltered from the open sea by many islands and close to the airport.  Split has high coastal mountains set against the blue Adriatic, provide a striking vistas while home to many of the city’s café’s and boutique shops.  Split is the perfect place to start your Croatian adventure.  We set sail for Brac.
 
Brac - Day 2
After leaving Split and a quick sail, we arrive in the secluded bay of Uvala Lucice where we’re protected from the winds and have a berth waiting just for us!  There will be time for a cheeky glass of mine on board before we will dine on the footsteps of the water and watch the sun goes down on our first night of the journey. 
 
Palmizana Bay/Hvar – Day 3
Hvar is the queen of the Croatian Dalmatian islands. It has been famous since the antique because of its important strategic and nautical position.
 
This place has it all including the best spot to catch the sunset to the sound of house music, known for its après-beach party (4pm to 9pm), where all of young trendy Hvar descend for sundowner cocktails.  If you prefer to stay on board, you'll enjoy a perfectly still night in the bay with an outdoor cocktail bar a short tender ride away.  
 
You will wake to the magic of the Dalmatian! 
 
Vis - Day 4  
We will make for an early departure and head to Vis, where we will explore the Green Caves, cliff jump in front of the caves then head to Stiniva Bay for an ice cream in the hidden beach before making way to Vis town for the night.  
 
While on Vis you can explore the island by convertible VW, scooter or wander the promenade collecting souvenirs and tasting the local cheese and wines. 
 
Korčula – Day 5
We arrive at the postcard-perfect marina in the heart of fortified Korcula Island with plenty of time to wander the old backstreets.  Take in a traditional mock sword fight, venture out of town to a vineyard or soak up the atmosphere and take yourself back in time.  Just imagine if the stone walls could talk.
 
Keep an eye out for dolphins when sailing to Mljet.
 
Polacče (Mljet) – Day 6
Mljet is the most beautiful and most forested island in the Adriatic and one of the most beautiful islands of the Mediterranean.  We will explore the coastline, stopping wherever we feel, or make a beeline for the sheltered waters of the National Park.  We will stop  in the crystal clear waters for light refreshments and a drinks break, before heading into Polače  where you can bicycle through the National Park or sit and enjoy the moment.
 
The backdrop of the day/evening will be nothing like what you've experienced before.  We promise you.
 
Okuklje (Mljet) - Day 7
Mljet National Park is just too good to say “zbogom” (goodbye), so let's not.  We’ll work our way down the coastline to find a hidden gem, where time stands still and the hospitality second to none in Okuklje (pronounced "o-kook-yeah"). We will dine in a restaurant where they will kill you with kindness and the food is pretty amazing too!  
 
No street lights means an amazing celestial display.
 
Dubrovnik
We will enjoy a leisurely breakfast before heading off on our final voyage.  We will take requests for what you’d like to do: find a secluded bay, stay in port just a little longer or hit the seas with the wind in our hair as we set off to our final port of call, Dubrovnik. 
 
The mystical old town will cast a spell over you and you’ll believe in fairy tales.  We will enjoy your last night any way you like before saying “zbogom” (Good bye).
 
Check out at 9am
 
Disembark at 9am
