Enjoy the option to tour the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Dubrovnik and Hvar, which offer insight into Croatian culture and architecture. Explore the beaches of Brač as the tide comes in and shifts their shape. Then, arrive to Split and choose to discover ancient Roman ruins, including the Palace of the Emperor Diocletian.
Our 15m (50 ft) nimble yacht is the perfect platform to explore the gorgeous Adriatic islands. Flexibility is key to adapt to local weather conditions, and the skipper will modify the itinerary to our advantage while sailing. Possible stops include: Brač, Mljet, Ploče, Korčula, and Hvar.
Brac Island Excursion
Head to Brač Island to explore its coastline and beaches, and play in crystal clear waters. Have a barbeque lunch on a deserted beach, visit local vineyards, or go for a refreshing dip in the Mediterranean Sea. Be sure to visit the island’s well-known Zlanti Rat beach, where the tides, currents, and wind are constantly shifting the shape of the beach.
Mljet Island Excursion
Stay active on Mljet, well known for being a perfect place for hiking, biking, and swimming. Soak in the island’s stunning scenery and peaceful atmosphere. This lushly forested island is so seductive, it’s said that Odysseus came and stayed for seven years. Take a guided tour of the Mljet National Park, or bask in the green waters by the rocks.
Step ashore at this bustling port town on the Adriatic coast for some shopping, or laze at one of its many beautiful beaches. Take a walk along the splendid coastline, and catch up with your fellow travellers in the evening for dinner.
Korčula Island Excursion
Sail to Marco Polo’s place of birth, Korčula, a typical medieval walled Dalmatian city and one of the Adriatic’s most lush green islands. Indulge yourself on this historic island and forget about the world around you. Discover the caves and secluded beaches that make this an attractive destination for exploration.
Day 7 – Adriatic Sea/Split
Weigh anchor early morning for the last passage to Split. Before crossing the Brač Channel, find a picturesque inlet to enjoy lunch before entering Split harbor. Enjoy the last night aboard, or join the rest of the group for dinner and drinks while reminiscing about the epic journey through the Adriatic Sea.

A NOTE REGARDING SMALL SPACES ON SAILBOATS: Please note that the rooming for these boats is assigned upon arrival and neither particular cabins nor berths can be guaranteed. You will be sharing a bunk or double bed with your travel partner or one of your fellow passengers of the same sex and sharing the bathrooms onboard. Please be aware that as this is a real sailboat and not a cruise vessel and the space on board is tight. The sleeping quarters on sailboats are generally kept to a minimum size in order to maximize public space and performance. Some people are not comfortable with the type of close quarter arrangements typically found on sailboats, however if a real sailing experience on a real sailboat is what you are after, then this experience should more than make up for cramped quarters. Opportunities to sleep in open air on main deck are often available. Please note that the skipper may also be sharing the ship’s quarters and amenities with you.
