Day 1: Check-in

In the afternoon you will have time to dive, baths and walk on the beach and, if you want to adventure, you can try the excursion that we have organized for you and rafting among the rapids of the Cetina River. You will be reunited in the evening to the boat that will await you in Makarska. Once you reach the city of Makarska where we will spend the night, you will have time to visit the old town with the ancient fortress, the beautiful churches and the charming streets, where you can get lost among locals and small shops.
The cruise continues to the island of Brac and more precisely to the city of Bol, famous for its spectacular white sand beach, with an unmistakable shape and unique throughout Croatia: Zlatni Rat. After the bathroom break and lunch break, we will continue our journey to the picturesque Stari Grad (City of England) on the island of Hvar. Free afternoon to explore this charming and history-rich city. Dating back to 584 BC, Stari Grad is in fact the oldest city in Croatia and will enchant you with its indissoluble beauty that has earned it the unesco world heritage declaration.
From Stari Grad it makes its way to the lively and fashionable town of Hvar. Lunch break at anchor in the crystal clear waters of the Pakleni Islands where you can swim, relax and sunbathe before arriving at Hvar in the afternoon. A day to explore this extraordinary town full of charm and culture. From the ancient Renaissance cathedral, to the oldest theatre in Europe founded in 1612, through the artisan workshops and fine lace, to the Spanish Fortress that from the top of the city dominates the bay below and from which you will enjoy the spectacle of a breathtaking sunset. A refreshing cocktail at one of the many waterfront venues will mark the perfect end to this wonderful day.
We start to sail to the small island of Bisevo to visit, if the sea allows, the Blue Cave that will enchant you for the incredible sapphire color of its waters (admission for a fee about 9.00€ per person). The journey then continues to the island of Vis, a historic naval base for its strategic location, this island has remained far from mass tourism and retains the charm of the Mediterranean of the past. Overnight in the city of Vis, located in the northern part of the island and developed near the ruins of ancient Issa, where you can visit the ruins of the ancient Roman baths or simply walk aimlessly enjoying the view among the vineyards along the coast.
After breakfast, sail to the island of Korsula, the birthplace of the great explorer Marco Polo. Surrounded by the imposing medieval walls, the city of Korsula is also called the "Dubrovnik in miniature". Here, as in no other Croatian city, you can breathe the charm of the legends and ancient traditions that still mingle with modern life today: Korushala is in fact the only place in the world where the Moreka, a medieval chivalrous tournament of Spanish origin, still takes place. After arriving at the port you will have plenty of time to enjoy the charm of a walk through the beautiful streets of the old town arranged in the particular wooden form of fish and visit the numerous "konobe" (taverne) where to savor the tasty local cuisine. Overnight in the harbour.
The tour proceeds to one of the greenest islands in the Adriatic: the lush Mljet, whose northern part is home to Mljet National Park. Time available to admire the beauties of the National Park with the two salt lakes from the crystal clear waters, connected to the sea by a narrow canal where you can cool off. You can also cross Lake Grande by a small boat and reach the island of Santa Maria which is located in the center and on which there is an ancient church and a monastery. In the afternoon it makes its way to the Elafiti Islands, one of the Elafites islands near Dubrovnik, or to Slano, on the mainland, both beautiful fishing villages in which we will stop for the night.
In the morning we start to sail, after a stop for a dip in the beautiful waters of the bay, we make our way to the final destination of our trip: the wonderful city of Dubrovnik. Free time to visit this true pearl of the Adriatic and, if you want, take a cable car ride to Mount Srđ to take in the spectacular views of the old city from above. Or stroll along the nearly two-kilometre perimeter of the city's scenic walls and be enchanted by the postcard-perfect scenery of Dubrovnik and the surrounding islands. Overnight in the port of Gruz.
