Day 1: Check-in
Embarkation is scheduled at 09.00 am at the Tourist Port of San Salvo. After placing your luggage on board and a short briefing by the crew on navigation towards Croatia, we will depart for Komiza, which we will reach in about 4 hours. Upon arrival at your destination and disembarking ashore, you will be welcomed by the crew of the catamaran, who will give you directions for visiting the characteristic village of Komiza and recommend a few small restaurants or typical taverns where you can have lunch in total freedom, before boarding the catamaran at around 17.00. After stowing your luggage and taking possession of your cabins, the crew will give you a briefing about the cruise and the boat, and then dinner will be served around 20.00.
After breakfast, we will reach the island of Biscevo. We will moor in the quiet bay of Mezuporat, where we will have an aperitif and lunch on board, or we will moor to the north of the island to visit the 'Blue Grotto', a beautiful sea cave hidden in the bay of Balun. Thanks to a submerged side opening, there is a play of shadows and light created by the sun reflecting in the cave - a sight not to be missed. In the afternoon we will sail towards Vis to reach Veli Budikovac, an islet with paradisiacal waters where we will finally enjoy the sea: the crystal-clear water is perfect for snorkelling to discover the seabed and the coves present. Dinner on board and overnight in the roadstead. We recommend going ashore after dinner for a stroll around the small shops and typical restaurants where you can stop for a cocktail or taste an excellent homemade ice cream.
Today we set sail early in the morning to reach the town of Hvar in about two hours. We will spend the first half of the day among the Pakleni Islands, a small archipelago of islets with lush vegetation, exotic beaches and wonderful coves, not to mention its turquoise waters. Alternatively, we can head to the famous Palmizana bay on the south side of the island of Hvar, where we can enjoy an excellent aperitif at sunset in one of the many seaside bars. Dinner on board and the possibility of mooring at the Aci Marina in Palmizana or at the buoy in the safe cove of Laganini.
After breakfast we will set sail in the direction of the Island of Scedro, where we will visit some of the most beautiful beaches in Croatia. As it is quite small, we will stay all on this island, moving every three or four hours to moor and discover its beautiful bays. For those who love snorkelling, this is the ideal island where you can enjoy a diversity of marine species. In the evening we will moor in a bay to the north of the island where you will find a typical Croatian restaurant where you can taste the famous spaghetti with sea urchins.
This morning, after breakfast, we will cast off and head towards Korcula, more precisely to Vela Luka, famous for its picturesque bays: Gradina, Triporte, Poplat, Picena, Mikulina Luka, Tudorovica, Stratincica and Zukova, each one more beautiful than the last. We will reach the island around 1 pm, just in time to enjoy an excellent lunch in the roadstead in front of one of its beautiful beaches. After a relaxing afternoon, we can choose to sleep in the roadstead or moor at the island's marina.
Upon awakening, after breakfast, we will set sail for about three hours and reach the easternmost part of the island of Korcula. During navigation we will stop for a swim in one of its beautiful bays. In the afternoon, after lunch, we will moor in front of the Badija Monastery, where it will be possible to go ashore with the tender to hike through the lush vegetation and perhaps meet one of the numerous deer that freely graze the island. Around 7 p.m., we will move on to the town of Korcula where we will moor near a small harbour. The majesty and legends that precede the town of Korcula are well known, so after dinner, a relaxing stroll through the fantastic Old Town, one of the most beautiful and well-kept in Croatia, is a must.
Today we set sail for Lastovo, one of the most fascinating islands in southern Croatia, and it is considered one of the Mediterranean paradises. After a short sail of a couple of hours, we will reach the town of the same name, where everything is in the sign of the number 46: it is surrounded by 46 islands, there are 46 beaches and 46 fields. We will choose a quiet bay to anchor for lunch: Zaklopatica, SkrivenaLukao or Ubli are just some of the island's most picturesque moorings. Here it will also be possible to stop and visit the bunkers used by submarines as shelters during the Cold War. The afternoon is dedicated to relaxation, before dining under the stars.
Day 8: Check-out
At dawn on Saturday, we will resume sailing to return to Komiza. Arrival in the Port of Komiza is expected around 8.30-9.00 a.m., where disembarkation from the catamaran will take place. In the meantime that the boat arrives for the fast transfer back to Italy, you can spend the last few hours in the characteristic town of Komiza. We suggest that you do not miss a single hour at sea and go and visit some of the small beaches near the harbour, which are really beautiful and quiet. Around 14.30 you can embark for the return to Italy and in about four hours you will reach San Salvo.
The itinerary may be subject to variations based on weather conditions, safety conditions and the technical assessments of the captain of the boat. This program is intended as indicative and not binding.
