Day 1
Split, Croatia to Stari Grad

Today, we’ll meet in Split – then it’s off the mooring line and on to Stari Grad on the northern side of Hvar island. A UNESCO World Heritage-listed town, Stari Grad is certainly pleasing on the eye! Tonight, you have the option to clink glasses and get to know the gang over a BBQ dinner aboard the boat.

Optional activities: BBQ dinner onboard

Meals: Lunch

Day 2
Stari Grad to Hvar

This morning we’ll set a course for Hvar, one of Croatia’s glittering gems AND playground to the likes of Tom Cruise, Ellen DeGeneres and Prince Harry (just to name a few). Later, we’ll check out the famous fortress, cathedral and square before we go to town on an included night out. Our drink recommendation? Try a mist-mash (it involves red wine and Fanta. Best not ask).

Included activities:

  • Visit Hvar Fortress (entrance not included)
  • Night out in Hvar

Meals: BreakfastLunch

Day 3
Hvar to Bol

Next up today: Bol. Need more beach in your life? You’ve come to the right place! If you’ve got itchy feet, you’re in luck, too. You’ve got a free day to do as you please, so dust off that camera and go for a wander. All of those pretty stone houses and brightly coloured flowers won’t take photos of themselves, now, will they? If you fancy it, you can even opt in for a wine tasting session. Raised pinkies at the ready!

Optional activities: Wine tasting in Bol

Meals: BreakfastLunch

Day 4
Bol to Markaska

Time to trim the sails again and set a course for the Makarska Riviera, one of the best unsung holiday spots in Europe. The day’s all yours to stroll the pretty promenade, indulge in some adventurous activities (think: hiking and biking), or simply lounge about on the pebbly beach. You do you.

Meals: BreakfastLunch

Day 5
Markaska to Korcula

Did you pack your sense of adventure? Good. We’re moving on to Korcula, where we’ll be hitting the cobblestone alleys on a walking tour. Later on, there’s plenty of time to climb your way to the top of an old-school cathedral tower to savour a colourful cocktail. Take note: the ladder to the top of Massimo’s cocktail bar is seriously steep, so watch your step! Anyone for an optional village dinner experience afterwards?

Included activities: Walking tour of Korcula Old Town

Optional activities:

  • Village dinner experience
  • Buggy safari

Meals: BreakfastLunch

Day 6
Korcula to Mljet

With more natural beauty and cool abandoned stone buildings than you can shake a sextant at, Mljet is the perfect place to chill out. Get a dose of serenity on an optional National Park visit and boat it over to St Mary Island to visit the resident donkeys, then round off the day with an optional captain’s dinner with the gang.

Optional activities:

  • Visit Mljet National Park
  • Captain’s dinner onboard

Meals: BreakfastLunch

Day 7
Mljet to Dubrovnik

Check out the Mljet sunrise, then it’s off to the most famous walled city in Europe: Dubrovnik. Today’s optionals will knock your socks off! Try sea kayaking around the city walls, or step out on a Game of Thrones tour.

Optional activities:

  • Sea kayaking around the ancient City Walls
  • Game of Thrones tour

Meals: BreakfastLunch
