Monday - Trogir - Bol - Hvar
We start our day with morning departure towards Bol, said to have the best beach for swimming in Croatia named Zlatni Rat. (Golden cape). We will stop in Bol and enjoy this nice Dalmatian town for a walk, or to have a cup of coffee and take a swim till lunch is served on board. After lunch we will continue cruising towards the sunniest island of Croatia – the island of Hvar, along of the many coves and bays on the way.
Hvar is one of the most popular, very attractive tourist destinations and a meeting point for the international jet set. Upon your afternoon arrival at Hvar, a local English speaking guide will walk you throughout the town introducing you to the history, culture and way of life on this island and explain how lavender was traditionally farmed on the Island of Hvar for centuries. Have an evening in Hvar free on your own to explore and dine around in one of numerous family owned restaurants.
Tuesday - Hvar -Bisevo Blue Cave
Morning cruise to Island Bisevo with its Blue cave. The cave has its own natural entrance which is located below sea level, which required that it visitors dive deeply only to resurface into the cave’s mysterious blue depths. This natural phenomenon creates a magical effect of deep blue and shiny silver, mystifying her visitors.
However, sometimes High Waves prevent the entrance to Blue Cave, which is something we shall not know before the morning designated for our visit. If that happens, we can provide an alternative half-day tour of Vis Island with WWII RAF Airport, along with Komiža – a peculiarly beautiful town boasting the longest fishing tradition on East Adriatic. On the other hand, if we succeeded to see Blue Cave we will reach island of Vis after lunch.
Vis is a pearl among Croatian Adriatic islands, left untouched by the development of tourism for so many years - due to its strategic location on the open sea, it served as a military zone for many years. Beautiful beaches, and preserved nature, ecological agriculture and preserved traditional architecture are unique advantages of this unique Croatian island.
Wednesday - Vis - Korcula
We start our day with morning departure towards the island of Korcula. We shall stop for a swim before lunch and in the afternoon arrive to Korcula town, on Korcula Island. Korcula is a city known as a birthplace of Marko Polo, the famous explorer. Our English speaking guide will do Korcula City tour, and walk us through narrow and cobbled streets. The rest of the evening is free to enjoy dining at one of the local restaurants of your choice.
Tuesday - Korcula - National Park Mijet - Sipan Island or Slano

Entrance fees to National Park Mljet are included.
Return to a boat for a lunch. We shall continue our cruise to Šipan Island where we shell anchor in a small picturesque peaceful fishermen’s village of Šipanska Luka.
