7 Day Itinerary

Dubrovnik to Elaphiti Islands

Leaving Dubrovnik, board your luxury yacht and enjoy a glass of wine as you sail to the Elaphiti Islands.

Your first night onboard will showcase a collection of artisanal Croatian dishes by your private chef under the sparkling night sky.

After, grab your dancing shoes and dance the night away under the moonlit sky.

Korcula

Spend the day tanning and swimming in mesmerizing bays as you sail to Korcula Island. Enjoy an onboard wine-tasting class with your knowledgeable Sommelier. Learn how to taste wines and discover Croatia’s wine regions with the Adriatic Sea as your background. Arrive in the late afternoon in Korcula Town and explore the stunning city nicknamed Little Dubrovnik.

Korcula Full-Day Food & Wine

Wake up to a lovely breakfast and get ready to immerse yourself in Korcula’s exquisite local food and wine region. Get ready for jaw-dropping views as your sommelier and driver guide you across the island. You will visit family run wineries and try two wine varietals, Posip and Grk. Both are indigenous to the island and can be found exclusively on Korcula

Try Olive Oil from a family run olive grove and local honey made on the island.  

Vis Island

Say goodbye to Korcula, the past home of Marko Polo, and sail to a wild bay for a swim in the gleaming turquoise sea. With abundant water toys onboard, like paddle boards and snorkel masks, explore the underwater sea life. After a fun day on the sea, set sail to the iconic Vis Island. Vis is known for its rich history and stunning locations.  Anchor in Vis Town for the night, wander the cobblestone streets, or sit on the promenade and enjoy a glass of the island’s indigenous grapes, Vugava or Rukatac.

Seaside Gourmet Lunch & Hvar Island

Leaving early morning from Vis, sail towards the beloved Hvar island. Today is one of our favorite days as we will have a traditional Croatian homemade meal at a seaside restaurant! We will anchor in the middle of the bay, and the restaurant will pick us up on a speedboat and take us to a gorgeous coastal oasis.

Indulge in the food and savor the view. Try things like freshly caught seasfood and homegrown vegetables from their garden.  Take it all in as you enjoy a glass of wine exclusively from the owners vineyard. 

After lunch, we will continue and dock in the early evening in Hvar.  Enjoy the vibrant city filled with bars, live music, and great people-watching!

You Choose! Bol Brac or Jelsa, Hvar

After a fun night on Hvar Island, enjoy the day tanning and swimming in a gorgeous bay. One thing that makes this cruise so unique is we love to give our guests a customized and personalized experience. Therefore, the next stop is up to the group! We can either sail to Bol, Brac, which is famous for Zlatni Rat Beach (Golden Horn), or we can stay the night in Jelsa, Hvar, which is an adorable slower, paced, and quaint seaside town with a lovely winery called Tomic.

Split

Dive into the crystal-clear Sea and enjoy the onboard water toys for your last swim stop of the week—cruise to the ancient city of Split, known for Diocletian Palace. Diocletian was an ancient Roman Emperor who commissioned his seaside home on the shores of Split. While walking along Split’s promenade, you will soon realize why Diocletian called Split his 2nd home.

Split is Croatia’s 2nd biggest city and has so much to offer! Whether you fancy a culinary experience, wine tasting, a night out, or exploring museums, Split has it all.

After breakfast and seven glorious days onboard, say goodbye to your new friends and the crew.  We can help arrange airport transfer, or if you want an extra day in Split, we have optional tours that we can arrange!

All Mini cruisers are tied next to each other in the port, so you may have to walk across another boat to reach the promenade. We can go to the seaside restaurant for lunch if the weather permits.
