Itinerary

The greenest island of the Adriatic Sea

Our sailing tour starts in Slano, a small hamlet near Dubrovnik. We will sail west, and the first island we will visit is Mljet. Mljet is the greenest island in Croatia, with 70% of its surface covered with forest. The island is not very populated, but it has a rich history and remains of a civilization that occurred on the island thousands of years ago. On the west side of the island is a national park with two salt lakes, Malo Jezero and Veliko Jezero. The park also includes the villages of Goveđari, Polače, and Pomena. Rent a bike and enjoy a unique swim in the lovely green inlets of Mljet. We will spend the night in Polače bay. Village Polače is an important archaeological site with the remains of a Roman palace and two early Christian basilicas. According to legend, the Odyssey shipwreck happened on the coast of Mljet.


Birthplace of Marco Polo

After time in the morning to enjoy Mljet national park, we will sail out from the bay of Polače towards the island of Korčula. On our way to Korčula, we can stop for a swim on one of the secluded beaches along the route. 

Korčula Town is the main town on the island, famous for its medieval walls and a layout of narrow streets that are designed according to a fishbone. Visit the house of Marco Polo, the most famous adventurer who inspired many to sail off and explore the world. Maps of the Far East had been drawn for centuries according to his travel records.

Sunniest of all

After an overnight stay in Korčula, we head to another Adriatic jewel, Hvar. We’ll leave Korčula early in the morning so we can spend some time on water activities on our way to one of the world’s top 10 destinations. Hvar is known for its sunny days, the crystal blue water with the nearby seductive islands, enchanting stone streets, and the old Venetian palace in the old town. Hvar offers a wide variety of things, from fabulous nightlife, ancient sites, and monuments, to remarkable nature. One thing is for sure, Hvar will knock you off your feet. Overnight in Hvar.


Hvar - Pakleni islands - Brac

After free time to explore Hvar town, we will sail through the archipelago of the Pakleni Islands, a labyrinth of several smaller islands, towards the charming island of Brac or Solta. Stopping for swimming in one of the bays along our route.

Both islands are on our route to Split and offer safe mooring spots for the night.


Sail to UNESCO’s city of Split

On the last day of our adventure, we will sail to Split. A slow day will include stopping for a swim or lunch on one of the islands along the way. Arrival to Split in the late afternoon. Split has one of the most remarkable archaeological localities in the world, Diocletian’s Place. The Diocletian’s Palace is a stunning tremendous building built on ancient ruins in 305 AD for the Roman emperor Diocletian. Throughout history, Palace was influenced by the design of each period, having now Romanesque, medieval, gothic, and baroque buildings. From 1979 the Diocletian’s Place is under UNESCO protection and represents the landmark of Split. This well-preserved Roman monument now has 3,000 locals living within the walls and a lot of taverns, shops, bars, and museums.
