You depart from Split promptly at 13:00. Lunch will be served on board as you sail towards Brac Island with some time out for a swim or snorkel in the warm, crystal waters en route. At Brac Island, you will either be staying at Omis or Pucisca. At Omis, you will find a picturesque town at the base of a steep hill, which is home to an ancient and impressive fortress, which you can explore. Enjoy the beaches and the town’s many historic sites, including the 10th century Church of St. Peter. Those with a taste for adrenalin can take their pick of zip-lining, river-rafting, fishing or pristine diving. at Pucisca on the northern end of the island, you will be greeted by classic Mediterranean hospitality. Enjoy the plentiful local food and wine, or visit the quarry which is home to the world’s most famous stone – Brac, which was used to build both Split’s Diocletian’s Palace and Washington’s White House.
We leave Brac Island early as we head for the fascinating island of Korcula, where you’ll spend the night. There will be time for a refreshing morning swim en route before lunch, which will be served either at the Peljesac peninsula, or the secluded bay of Kneza. At Kor?ula, the famous birthplace of the adventurer, Marco Polo, you’ll have the afternoon to explore the multitude of historic monuments, learn about Korcula’s many legends and even participate in a traditional sword dance. We recommend that you visit one the many local restaurants where the home-made wines, brandies and desserts are not to be overlooked.
You’ll have time to do some more exploring and visit the local market in Korcula before we depart for Lastovo Island, where you’ll spend the night. Once we arrive in Ulbi port, you’ll have time to explore the beautiful island with its striking coastline and dense forests, which is also a protected area. Visit the charming renaissance churches, or choose from the many exceptional diving and snorkelling sites and enjoy a spectacular display of fish and coral varieties.
We depart from Lastovo early and make our way towards the Island of Vis, which was closed to tourists until 1989; and so remains an unspoiled Mediterranean experience. We’ll stop for a swim at Ravnik Island, famous for a cave which reflects unusual colours onto the sea. Depending on the weather conditions at the time, we’ll continue on to either town of Komiza or the Island of Vis to spend the night. Komiza has a lot to offer any traveller; its beauty alone is worth a visit, but the wine routes, ancient museums, towering forts and unforgettable dive sites make for a combination that’s hard to beat. Vis takes you back in time with its authentic charm and unchanged countryside, where some of Croatia’s best wine is still cultivated and produced traditionally. You can explore the remains of the Roman Baths, visit the museums or simply take a walk and marvel at the sunset.
We leave bright and early for another day of magnificent cruising to visit the tiny island of Bisevo, where you can experience the magic of the Blue Grotto; a waterlogged cave which fills with aquamarine light shortly before noon. Afterwards, we’ll visit Komiza or Vis and then continue to Hvar Island’s unique town of Stari Grad, the sunniest island in the Adriatic, for an afternoon of exploration and relaxation. We recommend exploring the vast vineyards and fields of the historic Stari Grad plains, which have been cultivated since the 4th century BC, or visit the beautifully preserved renaissance Tvrdalj Castle.
After breakfast at Stari Grad, we depart for Brac Island’s famous town of Bol, where you can swim and sunbathe at Dlamatia’s most famous beach; the Golden Horn, which extends a perfect strip of white sand into the turquoise and blue ocean. When exploring Bol, be sure to sample the local wines and delicacies or take a trip up to Vidova Gora for unforgettable views of the island and its surroundings. Visit a local restaurant and enjoy a variety of the freshest seafood you can get.
Our last day gives you time to relax and really take in the atmosphere. We’ll stop at several of Brac’s tranquil bays to swim or snorkel before we make our way back to Split, the stunning UNESCO World Heritage Site city where your journey started. You’ll have time to do some sightseeing and visit Diocletian's Palace, made from the stone found on Brac, or visit the famous statue of Gregory of Nin at the Diocletian’s Golden Gate. According to legend, if you rub the statue’s big toe and make a wish, it will come true.
Enjoy an early breakfast and do some last-minute exploring before checking in for departure between 11am and 12pm. Say goodbye to the crew and prepare to depart at 13:00.
