8 Day Itinerary

Balkan Sail 8 day itinerary

Day 1


It’s time to make a splash and kick off your adventure in style as we set sail from Gruz Harbour! Get settled into the vessel and get to know your group over a delicious onboard lunch. Marvel at the stunning views as we sail around the magnificent walls of Dubrovnik (aka King’s Landing, Westeros!) and try not to feel too smug when you wave at those on land from your epic ship. You’ll have your first swim stop for a refreshing soak in the pristine blue waters of the Adriatic and we arrive into port just in time for Happy Hour! Then it’s time to stretch those legs with a walking tour of Dubrovnik to highlight all the best sights to see. Tonight take the chance to explore Dubrovnik’s vibrant nightlife and party inside a 15th century fortress at Club Revelin!

Day 2

Dubrovnik to Cavtat

As the sun rises over the deep blue horizon this morning, we’ll make our departure from Dubrovnik and sail away through the Lokrum, Bobara and Cavtatski Islands towards Cavtat. Enjoy your breakfast and try to come to terms with the fact this isn’t all a wonderful dream! You’re in for a lot of postcard-perfect views today, so relax on board and take in the scenery. After a day of refreshing swim stops and cruising in the sun, we’ll port at the border between Croatia and Montenegro amongst the lush green islands. You’ll get the chance to wander Cavtat and check out its Old Town. We hope you join us later on tonight for the optional Captain’s BBQ dinner - there’s plenty of food, drinks, games and good times to be had! (B, L)

Day 3

Cavtat to Herceg Novi

Rise and shine! Stretch out on deck and soak up the sun as we sail along the coast of Montenegro today. Fuel up with some breakfast, as we’ll be having some swim stops along the way. Dive into that clear blue water and wash away any and all of life’s troubles! We’ll be cruising into international waters as we make our way to our destination of Herceg Novi, located at the mouth of the Bay of Kotor. There is some spectacular scenery on offer, with the steep grey slopes of the Dinaric mountains descending into the dark blue waters of the bay. Tonight we’ve got some exploring to do as we head ashore into this beautiful coastal town, so we hope you’ve saved some energy! Later tonight we’ll party in the Old Town, so get ready to let loose. (B, L)

Day 4

Herceg Novi to Kotor

Today we hoist anchor and set sail through the magnificent Bay of Kotor. This location is always a highlight, as you’ll soon see why! Hemmed in by towering mountains, small towns filled with monasteries and ancient architecture, show-stopping citadels, and more fresh seafood eateries than you can shake a stick at, this beautiful cove is truly unforgettable. After a swim stop, we’ll port and get those legs moving with a walk up to the Fort of Kotor, with magnificent views as your reward. Get your camera ready, because this spot is pure Instagold! (B, L)

Day 5


Get ready to immerse yourself in the Montenegrin lifestyle today! Chow down on some breakfast, before heading out to explore the hip beaches of Budva. For those looking to pick up a few goodies and souvenirs, why not hit the shops and treat yourself? We’ll also have the chance to visit the private island of Sveti Stefan and take in all of its stunning natural beauty. After a busy day exploring and checking out the sights, we’re sure you’ll be more than ready to enjoy Happy Hour back on board our trusty vessel. Kick back with a few drinks and rest up, before we head back to Budva to experience the nightlife! (B, L)

Day 6

Kotor to Elaphite Islands

If you had a big night last night, you can relax in the knowledge that today is all about rest and recovery. Breathe in that fresh sea air and fill up with some tasty breakfast as we sail out to the mouth of the Bay of Kotor. You get to enjoy the crystal clear waters on our nice long swim stops today, and soak up the sun. After we’ve had another delicious lunch, we’ll get some music going on deck before cruising back into Croatian waters amongst the Elaphite Islands to explore! Tonight we’ll regroup for the optional Captain’s Dinner onboard. (B, L)

Day 7

Elaphite Islands to Dubrovnik

It’s our last full day today, so don’t sleep through it! Have some breakfast in the sun as we set a course for Dubrovnik, with a stop around the hidden bays of the Elaphite Islands for some swimming in the cool blue waters. Enjoy your last lunch as we continue onwards, arriving into Dubrovnik for our final night. We’ll make the most of Happy Hour on board once more, before stretching our sea legs in the beautiful Old Town and grabbing some dinner together. Then prepare yourself for a night of partying at Revelin with your shipmates. We’re going to go out with a bang, and see off this adventure in style! (B, L)
