Spend 7 days sailing Croatia, island-hopping across the stunning Adriatic! Our routes from Split and Dubrovnik (and vice-versa) include the vibrant islands of Hvar and Korčula, the peaceful national park Mljet and magical islands in between. We stop in secluded bays for swim breaks and exploring the hidden gems that are only accessible by boat.
Switch off and relax as we spend leisurely days at sea navigating some of the Adriatic’s more remote islands as we sail Croatia. Learn how to sail, or just spend afternoons lazing on your yacht before wandering secluded villages as we take our time to show you another side of Croatia.

Day 1 – Split
Split, the old town is built around a sheltered harbour, sheltered from the open sea by many islands and close to the airport. Split has high coastal mountains set against the blue Adriatic, provide a striking vistas while home to many of the city’s café’s and boutique shops. Split is the perfect place to start your Croatian adventure. We set sail for Brač.
Day 2 -Vrboska
After leaving Split, we arrive in the secluded harbour of Vrboska where we’re protected from the winds and enjoy a traditional Croatian town. There will be time for a cheeky glass of wine on board before we will dine on the footsteps of the water and watch the sun goes down on our first night of the journey.
Day 3 -Hvar / Pakleni Islands
Hvar is the queen of the Croatian Dalmatian islands. It has been famous since the antique because of its important strategic and nautical position.
This place has it all including the best spot to catch the sunset to the sound of house music, known for its après-beach party (4pm to 9pm), where all of young trendy Hvar descend for sundowner cocktails. If you prefer to stay on board, you’ll enjoy a perfectly still night in the bay with an outdoor cocktail bar a short tender ride away. You will wake to the magic of the Dalmatian!
Day 4 – Vis
Vis has to be one of the higlights of the trip. We will leave early to get a head start on the day’s activities and our first stop will be the Green Caves! Explore the caves and cliff jump in front of the mouth of the cave!
After a morning’s excitement, we’re off to Stiniva Bay to discover the beach, hiding behing the cliff walls. Bring your camera for amazing pics and money for a cold beer or ice cream.
Once we’re done with the action-packed stuff, we’re off to Vis town to explore the island and the amazing local wine and cheese.
Day 5 – Korčula
We arrive at the postcard-perfect marina in the heart of fortified Korcula Island with plenty of time to wander the old backstreets. Take in a traditional mock sword fight, venture out of town to a vineyard or soak up the atmosphere and take yourself back in time. Just imagine if the stone walls could talk. Keep an eye out for dolphins when sailing to Mljet.
Day 6 – Polače (Mljet)
Mljet is the most beautiful and most forested island in the Adriatic and one of the most beautiful islands of the Mediterranean. We will explore the coastline, stopping wherever we feel, or make a beeline for the sheltered waters of the National Park. We will stop in the crystal clear waters for light refreshments and a drinks break, before heading into Polače where you can bicycle through the National Park or sit and enjoy the moment. The backdrop of the day/evening will be nothing like what you’ve experienced before. We promise you.
Day 7 – Okukje (Mljet)
Mljet National Park is just too good to say “zbogom” (goodbye), so let’s not. We’ll work our way down the coastline to find a hidden gem, where time stands still and the hospitality second to none in Okuklje (pronounced „o-kook-yeah“). We will dine in a restaurant where they will kill you with kindness and the food is pretty amazing too! No street lights means an amazing celestial display.
Day 8 – Dubrovnik
We will enjoy a leisurely breakfast before heading off on our final voyage. We will take requests for what you’d like to do: find a secluded bay, stay in port just a little longer or hit the seas with the wind in our hair as we set off to our final port of call, Dubrovnik. The mystical old town will cast a spell over you and you’ll believe in fairy tales. We will enjoy your last night any way you like before saying “zbogom” (Good bye). Check out at 8am
Closest airport is Split Airport, also known as Resnik Airport (SPU). It’s easy to get from Split Airport to Split. Several buses and taxies are available for the short ride.
