Day 1: Check-in
Check-in and boarding from 11:00 to 12:00 at the port of Opatija. It starts at 13:00 from Opatija (Opatija) inaugurating the holiday with a pleasant lunch at sea. We'll stop for some swimming and diving along the route that will lead us to the island of Krk. Here you will find rocky and jagged coasts that hide a multitude of bays with unspoiled nature and crystal clear waters. In the evening you will have free time to enjoy the town of Krk where you will spend the night, and wander through the typical restaurants and shops of the waterfront.
After breakfast, we will circumnavigate Krk to descend southwards towards the island of Rab, also known as "the island of love" for the undisputed charm it has for all travelers. Splendid pinewoods that reach the sea waters, with a thousand shades of blue, soft cultivated hills covered with olive trees and vineyards, pristine coves and golden sand beaches: you'll immediately fall in love! In the afternoon we'll visit the city surrounded by high medieval walls; among the beautiful stone-paved streets you will find numerous places to taste the famous Rab cake and, if you wish, you can venture out on an excursion to the Kamenjak mountain to admire a magnificent sunset. We'll stay the night in the city of Rab.
Morning departure from Rab to reach Zadar, along the island of Pag, with a stop on the islet of Maun for a swim. Once in Zadar, take a guided tour of the city, the ancient capital of Dalmatia and today the undisputed cultural center of the region. Here we can find historical monuments of international importance, from the Roman Forum dating back to the 1st century BC, and the splendid medieval Basilica of San Donato, finishing with the spectacular walls that surround the city and where the two great gates are set, an ancestral symbol of the border between the sea and the mainland, dating back to the 14th century A.C.. We will have our dinner here, in one of the fantastic restaurants in the city, and hop back on board for the night.
In the morning we will set sail heading south towards the islands of Molat or Olib (depending on the availability of mooring in the small ports): both these beautiful islands are located in the northern part of the Zadar archipelago and offer peace and tranquility. You will spend the evening on board for the pleasant "Captain's Dinner" with the company of the Captain and the crew at your disposal.
After breakfast and a nice dip in the crystal clear waters of the archipelago, we will head towards Ilovik "the island of flowers", for a brief stop before continuing the journey towards Lošinj, a true pearl of the Adriatic, renowned for its pristine waters and crystalline coasts, dotted with green pine forests. Once on land you can take a walk along the harbor to the Botanical Garden and wander around the picturesque town of Veli Lošinj. Overnight in Mali Lošinj.
From Mali Lošinj and after a fun morning dip in the water, we'll raise the anchor, heading north towards Cres. This long and narrow island will surprise you with its postcard-like landscapes with its beautiful coasts covered with oak woods and the cultivation of olive trees and vineyards. The islands of Cres and Mali were in ancient times part of a single island and were then separated by a channel, dug by the Romans. Overnight in the port of the romantic medieval city of Cres.
After breakfast, sail north to return to the Opatija harbor. Along the route you will have the opportunity to enjoy the spectacular landscapes offered by the splendid Opatija Riviera. Our arrival is probably going to be in the late afternoon, just in time for a walk on the famous promenade where you can cool off with an aperitif in the lively Opatija clubs or reach the nearby village of Volosko: a small fishing village renowned throughout Croatia for its excellent fish restaurants. Then on board a last party will be waiting for you to greet the crew and exchange photographs and addresses with new friends met during this wonderful holiday. Overnight on board in the picturesque port of Opatija.
