DAY 3 / MONDAY, AUG 22, 2022
TROGIR – BOL – HVAR
In the morning, we leave Trogir and head to the island of Brač, and the town of Bol - famous for its Golden Cape, the 530m / 1740ft long golden pebbly beach. This beach is the most photographed beach of Croatia, and it is very unique, as it changes shape and position depending on the winds and sea currents. Join me for a walk around this small town, we will take a small train and go swimming in the Golden Cape! We’ll return to our ship for lunch and continue our sail toward the island of Hvar. This is my island, where my parents live and where I grew up! You will enjoy the views while we sail along the picturesque coast of my island of Hvar. Upon arrival in Hvar we will meet our licensed local guide who will tell the story about the island’s rich history, beautiful architecture, and important landmarks such as the Cathedral of St Stephen, the Theatre, one of the oldest in Europe dating back to 1612, and the mighty Spanish Fortress overlooking the city. Later tonight, you can explore the town on your own. Hvar is also famous for its nightlife, so tonight, we might party a little bit. Overnight in Hvar. (B, L)
DAY 4 / TUESDAY, AUG 23, 2022
HVAR – BIŠEVO BLUE CAVE – VIS
In the morning, we set sail again, this time toward the island of Biševo and its famous Blue Cave. This mesmerizing natural attraction is breathtaking with the sunlight creating a wonderful reflection from its white floor and bathing the cave in aquamarine light. The Blue Cave can only be approached by boat and sometimes it can happen that due to winds, waves, and currents, the access to the cave is not possible. We can only know about the sea conditions and the possibility of entrance on the same morning of the visit. In case we are lucky enough to get to see the Blue Cave, we will arrive the small town of Vis after lunch. Vis was once a Naval base for the navy of Ex Yugoslavia. Tourism was not allowed here for
decades. This has left Vis less touristy and much more authentic compared to other islands and towns in Croatia, like an unspoiled oasis. In Vis, we have free time, so you can really go and have your own unforgettable experience. There are many fortresses and interesting places to explore! Overnight in Vis.
DAY 5 / WEDNESDAY, AUG 24, 2022
VIS – KORČULA
This morning we leave Vis and head toward yet another fascinating island Korčula, but first, we will enjoy plenty of time for swimming along the sail before lunch. The City of Korčula is one of the best preserved medieval cities in the Mediterranean, thought to be the birthplace of the famous explorer Marco Polo. We will dock Korčula in the afternoon, and meet our licensed local guide that will show us around and tell us the fascinating stories about the city as well as some interesting tales of Marco Polo’s
life. After the walking tour, we are free! You can enjoy the town and discover the amazing local restaurants. Night cap meeting on board to hang out and compare experiences. Overnight in Korčula.
DAY 6 / THURSDAY, AUG 25, 2022
KORČULA – NATIONAL PARK MLJET – ŠIPAN ISLAND OR SLANO
Today we sail toward the island of Mljet. Our arrival in Pomena is expected around 10:00. Upon arrival, we’ll go visit the National Park, a very unique place, known for its versatile eco-system and two salt lakes (‘’Veliko jezero’’- Big Lake and ‘’Malo jezero’’- Small Lake), and for the Benedictine Monastery from the 12th century located on St Mary’s Islet. Walking around the Park and its lakes can be very relaxing, and it can make you forget about everything, so please do not forget to come back to the ship for lunch! In the afternoon, our adventure continues, and we cruise toward the island of Šipan and its peaceful fishermen’s village, Šipanska Luka. In case we are not able to anchor there because of weather conditions or docking capacity limits, we will cruise to Slano, situated on the mainland. In the evening, we will enjoy a Captain’s dinner on board and have a lot of fun! Overnight in Šipanska Luka or in Slano.
