8 Day Itinerary
Croatia One-way Sail Dubrovnik to Split 8 day full itinerary breakdown and route map
Alright, sailors, we’ll be kicking off our sea voyage with a little trip around Dubrovnik’s impressive walls! Time to work on those sea legs because this is our home for the next week. Enjoy a delicious on-board lunch and take in the breathtaking views of Dubrovnik’s magnificent walls (aka King’s Landing, from Game of Thrones). Ambitious pirates among us may already be drawing up invasion plans but we’d not recommend it, Dubrovnik’s defences have never been breached. Instead, we’ll enjoy our first soak in the pristine waters of the Adriatic before heading to port for happy hour. Tonight, explore Dubrovnik’s vibrant nightlife and party inside a 15th century fortress at Club Revelin! - Lunch included
Dubrovnik to Mljet
All hands on deck! The first officer’s hoisting anchor, our navigator’s perched in the crow’s nest, and the captain’s at the helm, steering us to the island of Mljet. Enjoy breakfast and lunch on-board today and cool off with a refreshing swim stop. We’ll drop anchor after lunch and allow you the entire afternoon to explore these strange new lands. Mljet is home to a sprawling national park with pine forests that frame a pair of shimmering salt lakes. Boating, swimming, biking, and sightseeing are all offered on this idyllic island so get stuck in! After a day of adventuring, chill out with a drink and prepare for a truly stunning sunset. Afterwards, we hope you’ll join us for some fantastic food, drink and good times at the optional Captain’s BBQ! - Breakfast and lunch included
Mljet to Korcula
We’ll sail away from Mljet early this morning, making waves as we journey to our next island, Korcula. Breakfast and lunch will be served en route and we’ll be stopping for an extra long, extra refreshing swim stop. We’ll arrive in Korcula this afternoon and have an orientation walk of the medieval Old Town, famous as the historic home of Venetian traveller, Marco Polo. Tonight, we’ll enjoy happy hour on-board before making moves into the Old Town. - Breakfast and lunch included
Korcula to Hvar
It might seem cruel to leave Korcula but our next stop is well worth the early departure. We’ll be carving our way through the crystal-blue waters of the Adriatic with heavenly Hvar locked in our sights. Before lunch is served, we’ll spend a while splashing around the Pakleni Islands, opposite the mouth of Hvar harbour. After making port, we’ll enjoy an orientation walk of the city, marvelling at Hvar and its lavish locations, such as the largest city square in Dalmatia, and the fortress. This evening, take in the electrifying nightlife with a party at Kiva Bar (and maybe one too many Tequila Boom Booms!) and optional entrance to Carpe Diem beach, where you’re expected to seize the day and dance the night away. - Breakfast and lunch included
Hvar to Stari Grad
We’re hoisting anchor and setting sail bright and early this morning on a relaxing meander to one of Europe’s oldest towns: Stari Grad. As per usual we will be enjoying breakfast and lunch on-board with a swim stop in between. We’ll arrive in the gorgeous bay of Stari Grad in the afternoon, where your Busabout guide will take you on an orientation walk of the town. Tonight we’ll enjoy a truly Croatian experience at a local wine farm on the Stari Grad plains, where we’ll kick things off with some olive oil tasting, followed by traditional peka for dinner, and capped off with wine tasting as the sun sets over this stunning and unique local setting. This is a side of Croatia few experience, so soak up the atmosphere (and the wine) and savour as much as you can! - Breakfast and lunch included
Stari Grad to Makarska
Life at sea has been special but this morning we make our way towards the mainland. After breakfast, we’ll get our swim on at Zlatni Rat (one of Europe’s most beautiful beaches!), followed by a delicious lunch on-board. We’ll arrive in Makarska this afternoon for an orientation walk, highlighting the sights of this amazing location. Now you’re free to enjoy the rest of your day however you see fit. Get a massage, do a spot of shopping, check out the Riviera, or just relax in one of the many cafes or bars. Grab some drinks and recharge your batteries during our on-board happy hour this evening. Tonight, we’ll grab a bite of dinner against the gorgeous backdrop of Makarska’s Old Town before a massive night of cave raving until the early hours! - Breakfast and lunch included
Makarska to Omis to Split
Today marks the last full day of our travels together so we’re planning on making it one to remember! First stop: the town of Omis. We’ll arrive after breakfast and embark on an orientation walk of the town, followed by a hike to Fort Mirabella. This fortress was once used to defend the town (and as a hideout for sneaky pirates) but the battlements now make for awe-inspiring views and excellent photo opportunities. We then make our way to Split with a delicious on-board lunch and our last swim stop en route. We’ll arrive in Split for the late afternoon and head into town for farewell drinks! - Breakfast and lunch included
Check-out is this morning. If you’d like to keep the party going, join us on our Hop-on Hop-off network! The next stop is Venice via Zadar. - Breakfast included
