OVERVIEW

Embark on this magnificent voyage along the Adriatic Sea and discover the many wonders of one of the historically most significant Croatian regions – Dalmatia.  Our yacht cruise will take you across the pristinely blue waters of the Adriatic, docking at several Central and Southern Dalmatian islands en route from Split to Dubrovnik. This sailing tour allows you to visit a different island each day and discover their highlights from a perspective which is not easily available to ordinary tourists.

Starting from Split, Croatia’s second largest city and the capital of Dalmatia, your island-hopping tour will take you from Split and Trogir, across the islands of Brač, Hvar, Vis, Korčula, Mljet and the Elaphite archipelago to Dubrovnik. Each of the islands is a small world unto itself, each boasting strikingly beautiful scenery, secluded bays and coves in which you will be able to swim, and a wealth of cultural and historical heritage that we will show you.

Savour the Croatian Adriatic, one of the last remaining oases of peace and serenity characterized by a typically Mediterranean lifestyle and an easy-going outlook on life. Complemented with the wonders of the local cuisine, splendid architecture, and vibrant cultural life, this is a voyage that will engage all your senses and provide a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
