Great weather, warm blue seas and beautiful cities. Sailing in Croatia with Busabout is a once in a lifetime experience.
Watching Game of Thrones on your massive TV may be awesome, but it’s nothing compared to our Croatia One-Way Sail. Sail around the walls of Dubrovnik feeling proud as a stinking-rich Lannister, go to parties more debauched than Tyrion could dream of, and learn Croatian secrets that would even make Littlefinger blush. The best thing is that in Croatia, winter and the bad guys are never coming. Take this sailing trip from Dubrovnik to Split and indulge in the epically cinematic history and mystery of the Dalmatian Coast.
We spend 8 days exploring Croatia. We visit Dubrovnik, Split, Mljet, Korcula, Hvar, Stari Grad , Makarska, Omis.

8 Day Itinerary
Croatia One Way Dubrovnik to Split 8 day full itinerary breakdown and route map
Your adventure begins this afternoon as we set sail from Gruz harbour in Dubrovnik. Get acquainted with the vessel and your accommodations before enjoying a delicious lunch on board. Take in the breathtaking views as we sail around the magnificent walls of Dubrovnik (aka King’s Landing, Westeros!). You then will have your first swim stop for a refreshing soak in the pristine waters of the Adriatic. We arrive into port just in time for happy hour so enjoy some drinks with your fellow travellers and get to know each other. We then have a walking tour of Dubrovnik to highlight all the sights to see in the Pearl of the Adriatic. Tonight take the chance to explore Dubrovnik’s vibrant nightlife and party inside a 15th century fortress at Club Revelin!
Dubrovnik to Mljet
We hoist anchor early this morning and set sail westward for the island of Mljet. Enjoy breakfast and lunch on board today with a refreshing swim stop in between. We make anchor after lunch and you have the entire afternoon to explore at your own pace. The island is home to a large national park with pine forests and abundant nature surrounding two salt lakes. There is boating, swimming, biking, and sightseeing on offer. Get the drinks in during happy hour 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.
Mljet to Korcula
We depart the wilderness of Mljet very early this morning as we make our way towards our next stop, Korcula. Breakfast and lunch will be served en route and should you require reprieve from the heat we have an extra long swim stop today. 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. Tonight we have happy hour on board before making our way into Old Town. End the night out on Korcula’s unique nightlife.
Korcula to Hvar
We depart from Korcula carving our way through the crystal blue waters of the Adriatic to our next stop, Hvar. Before lunch is served we have a swim stop at the Pakleni Islands, opposite the mouth of Hvar harbour. Catch a water taxi to Hvar or relax on board. We have an orientation walk of the city to get familiarised with Hvar and its numerous interesting locations including the largest city square in Dalmatia, the yacht Riva 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 dance the night away at Carpe Diem beach.
Hvar to Stari Grad
We hoist anchor and set sail 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 arrive into the gorgeous bay of Stari Grad in the afternoon. Once ashore your fabulous Busabout guide will take you on an orientation walk of the town. Tonight we have a truly local experience as we enjoy our evening at a local wine farm taking part in various activities including olive oil tasting, delicious traditional Peka for dinner, and wine tasting. This is a side of Croatia few experience, so soak up the atmosphere (and the wine!) and prepare for all the adventures still to come.
Stari Grad to Makarska
We make our way towards the mainland this morning. After breakfast we have a swim stop at Zlatni Rat (one of Europe’s most beautiful beaches!) followed by a delicious lunch on the vessel. We arrive in the afternoon and have an orientation walk to highlight the sights of this amazing location, nestled at the base of the Biokovo mountains. Enjoy your free time getting a massage, doing a spot of shopping, checking out the Riviera, or just relaxing 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 grab a bite for dinner in the gorgeous backdrop of Old Town and then get ready for a massive night as we rave in a cave until the early morning.
Makarska to Omis to Split
We depart Makarska early this morning and head to the town of Omis, where we’ll arrive after breakfast to have an orientation walk of the town, including a hike up to Fort Mirabella. The fortress 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. We then make our way to Split with a delicious on board lunch & swim stop en route, arriving in the late afternoon. Tonight we head into town for a last dinner together and farewell drinks!
