Day 2 Sunday: Split - Bol - Hvar
Morning departure to the island of Brac where swimming is planned at the most famous beach in Dalmatia – Zlatni Rat near Bol – whose shingle promontory shifts from side to side as the wind and waves constantly cause the beach shape to change. Bol is a typical fishermen’s village converted into a popular tourist destination yet retaining its charm. We continue towards the jet-set island of Hvar with lunch on board at the Pakleni Islands. Hvar is the longest and sunniest island in the Adriatic known for lush lavender fields and breathtaking beauty. We arrive in the afternoon on a tour of the town’s historical landmarks - the Renaissance cathedral with its original tower, and the oldest community theatre in Europe founded in 1612.

Day 3 Monday: Hvar - Bisevo - Vis
Early morning cruise towards the small island Bisevo to visit the Blue cave, a magnificent natural phenomenon (entrances to be paid on the spot – approx. 10 EUR). As sometimes weather conditions can be very unpredictable, the possibility of our visit will depend on those conditions, however you will be notified of this on time. Continue to the island of Vis, once a strategic naval Yugoslav base and closed to the public for years. Due to this isolation, Vis retains a special charm – the Mediterranean as it once was making it really interesting to visit. Situated on the northern side of the island, Vis has developed near the remains of ancient Issa, the first urban centre in Croatia. Sample local wines in one of the Vis traditional wineries. If interested, visit the remains of the Roman thermal place, City museum or simply take a walk enjoying the views of the beautiful Villae Rusticae situated along the waterfront. Overnight in the port of Vis.
Day 4 Tuesday: Vis - Korcula
Early morning departure towards the island of Korcula best known as the birthplace of Marco Polo. Stop for lunch in one of the secluded bays en route. Afternoon arrival in Korcula followed by a guided walking tour of this enchanting town surrounded by walls and one of the best preserved medieval cities in the Mediterranean. The fish bone street pattern was used in Korcula Old Town’s design to provide a natural cooling effect providing citizens with sheltered and comfortable accommodation. Korcula has an excellent choice of restaurants to enjoy your gourmet experience and there are numerous bars for those looking for evening entertainment. Optional excursion to small village near Korcula Town for typical Dalmatian dinner and to find out more about the history and traditional way of living. Overnight in Korcula.
Day 5 Wednesday: Korcula - Mljet
Next morning, we head further south to the Island of Mljet. The legend says Greek hero Odysseus spent years on this island when he was captured by the nymph Calypso. Join the cruise manager for a stroll to the famous salt lakes in the Mljet National Park and enjoy the boat ride to St. Mary Isle to visit an ancient Benedictine monastery, an old abbey and a Church dating back to the 12th Century. Alternatively, you can rent kayaks, bicycles, scooters or convertible cars to roam around the National Park or island on your own, but beware of the nymphs!

Before we tie up at Gruz harbor, we cruise alongside the old Dubrovnik city walls while lunch is served on deck. Cameras to be ready! After docking, transfer to the old town for the guided walking tour of this magical town. Take the cable car from the Old Town to Srdj mountain to enjoy scenic views of the Walls and Elaphiti Islands.
