Think crystal clear seas, tiny walled cities, eclectic islands and long nights sampling local food.
Croatia is that Instagram account you love to hate. Every time you check out their profile, their slender blonde beaches are looking sexier. Whenever you comment on that handsome fortress, there’s another squillion love hearts. And if you go to Snap your bistro burger, you’re trumped by an iced seafood feast. But stop being a hater and join the fun, because on this tour you cruise to the hottest parties you can dream of, dive into the bluest sea Picasso conjured, and take more jealousy-inducing photos than even Kendall Jenner could assemble. Take this round journey from Split and come back with a new (and smug) perspective.
We spend 8 days exploring Croatia. We visit Split, Hvar, Mljet, Dubrovnik, Korcula, Makarska, Omis, Pucisca.

8 Day Itinerary
Day 1: Split to Hvar
Your adventure begins as we set sail from Split harbour. Once on board, kick back and relax while your lunch is prepared as we head towards Hvar. Our first dip in the refreshing waters of the Adriatic will take place off the Pakleni Islands, these islands are located opposite the mouth of Hvar harbour. A short journey sees us arrive to Hvar town, where we will have an orientation walk to better familiarise ourselves with the city and its interesting locations including the fortress, the largest city square in Dalmatia, and the yacht Riva. This evening we take in the electrifying nightlife with a party in the Kiva bar (and perhaps one too many Tequila Boom Booms!) and optional entrance to dance the night away to deep house grooves at the Carpe Diem club.
Day 2: Hvar to Mljet
We depart Hvar very early and breakfast will be served as we chase the sun on our morning meander to Mljet. We will be stopping en route for a refreshing swim followed by lunch. We drop anchor in Mljet and you have the entire afternoon to explore the island at your leisure. The island is home to a large national park, with pine forests and abundant nature surrounding two salt lakes. There is biking, swimming, boating, and sightseeing on offer. Happy hour is at 7pm so get the drinks in and prepare for a truly stunning sunset. Then we hope you’ll join us for some fantastic, food, drink, and good times at the optional Captain’s BBQ.
Day 3: Mljet to Dubrovnik
We hoist anchor and set a course for Dubrovnik, breakfast will be served as we make our way to the Croatian coast. We have a swim stop and lunch shortly before arriving in King’s Landing, Westeros (also known as Dubrovnik!). We have an orientation walk to reintroduce you to terra firma and the awe-inspiring sights around you. Explore some surviving renaissance architecture such as the Sponza Palace or partake in a Game of Thrones walking tour of the city and walk the perimeter wall. Tonight explore Dubrovnik’s nightlife and party inside a 15th century fortress at Club Revelin!
Day 4: Dubrovnik to Korcula
Sleep in as we gently depart Dubrovnik early this morning. We will have a swim stop before lunch as we make our way to the island of Korcula. We arrive in the afternoon and have an orientation walk of the medieval Old Town, famous as the historic home of Venetian traveller Marco Polo. We then have happy hour on board tonight before making our way into the Old Town for food and drinks. We have an optional clubbing experience tonight at outdoor party hotspot Boogie Jungle, so the party animals among you should be sure not to miss out on Korcula’s vibrant nightlife.
Day 5: Korcula to Makarska
We set sail early as the Adriatic carries us gently to the coast of mainland Croatia and onward to the city of Makarska. Get the water wings ready as we will be having two swim stops today, one this morning and again after we have enjoyed our lunch. We arrive in the afternoon and have an orientation walk to help you get your bearings and highlight the sights of this amazing location at the base of the Biokovo mountains. Enjoy your free time by checking out the Riviera, getting a massage, doing a spot of shopping or just relaxing in one of the many cafes or bars. Tonight we grab a bite in the Old Town and harness the power to rave in a cave until the small hours.
Day 6: Makarska to Pucisca to Omis
This morning we head to the town of Omis, where we’ll have a swim stop with lunch served shortly after. After lunch we arrive in Pucisca on the island of Brac and after an orientation walk you will have a few hours to check out the sights. We make our way to the mainland and make port in Omis in the afternoon. Omis is home to Fort Mirabella, which you will have the pleasure of exploring shortly. Mirabella was once used to defend the town and as a hideout for pirates, the battlements now make for awe-inspiring views and excellent photo opportunities. Sooth your thirst after all the walking with our on board happy hour this evening. Afterwards feel free to join us for the optional Captain's Dinner and Pirate Party should you wish to earn your sea legs and shake yer booty!
Day 7: Omis to Split
Every ending has a beginning and every beginning an end, and today we end off where we began, setting a course for the city of Split. Enjoy your last chance to belly flop off-board at our morning swim stop shortly before lunch is served. We arrive into Split in the afternoon and begin our final night of festivities with an orientation walk of Croatia’s second largest city. See the Diocletian's Palace as you enjoy dinner in the Old Town, which falls within its ancient walls. Tonight we share our final drinks together, and afterwards the city is yours to explore and enjoy for the rest of the night!
