9 Day Itinerary
Day 1: Split
Your adventure begins with your 2pm check-in in Croatia’s second largest city, the Adriatic beauty of Split. Get settled in before heading out to explore the city and her numerous attractions. Shake off the cobwebs with our Busabout Ultra warm up and prepare for the chaos to come as tonight we kick off the tour with a bang at one of the continent’s biggest festivals, Ultra Europe. Remember to get the water in as you sweat it out on the dancefloor to the rhythmic bassline. Should you require anything, our Busabout team will be on hand to assist you in any way possible!
Day 2: Split (half-day sail)
This morning we check out of our accommodation and board our fantastic vessel. This afternoon we hoist anchor and set sail. Enjoy the scenic views and relax on the deck with an ice cold drink before enjoying lunch a refreshing swim in the welcoming waters off the island of Brac. We begin our return voyage and have an on board happy hour, get the drinks in while you can, before arriving back in Split to grab some dinner and get ready for another crazy night of mesmerising music and dance with our fantastic Busabout team on hand to assist. We’re at the Ultra halfway mark so, if FOMO is a no-no, pace yourself as there is still plenty to experience in this idyllic party paradise!
Day 3: Split (day sail)
We set our sights and sails on the coastal treasure of Omis. Relax and enjoy your breakfast as we glide along the coast. Spend a few hours enjoying the sun at the superb local beaches before joining us for a lunch on board, then head into town to explore imposing Fort Mirabella, which was once a defensive fortification and pirate hideaway, her battlements make for incredible views and excellent photo opportunities. We return to Split in the afternoon and get ready for the big one to set the tone, the pinnacle of the Ultra Europe experience, the final night of festival revelry! Lose yourself to the music as the DJ leads you down a primal path to a paradise of flashing lights, thundering bass, and a writhing mass of bodies.
Day 4: Split to Makarska
We silently reel in the anchor early this morning as we depart Split like thieves in the night heading south. An easy morning’s cruise as we make our way along the stunning Croatian coastline. Break out the water wings for a refreshing dip in the Adriatic at our swim stop then kick back and relax as you are served a scrumptious on board lunch before our arrival at the base of the Biokovo mountains. Enjoy your free time chilling on the beach or take part in the myriad of water sports on offer or check out the town. After another on board happy hour we head out to the Old Town for some warm up drinks, grab a bite to eat and prepare for an unforgettable night, the unique experience of a rave in a cave until the early hours.
Day 5: Makarska to Stari Grad
We set an early course for the northern coast of Hvar on our meandering journey to the ancient settlement of Stari Grad. Enjoy another great breakfast and relax on deck as the gorgeous Croatian scenery floats by, before arriving at the breathtaking waters of Zlatni Rat for a swim stop in these picture perfect surrounds. Have a tasty lunch on board as we traverse the seas to make our arrival at historic Stari Grad. Old Town certainly lives up to its name with a heritage back to 384 BC. Join us for an optional excursion as we make our way to a local wine farm to enjoy a traditional pot of Dalmatian Peka for dinner followed by an olive oil and wine tasting as the sun sets over the Stari Grad plains.
Day 6: Stari Grad to Hvar
This morning we set sail for the port of Hvar. Enjoy a swim stop en route in the azure waters of the Pakleni Islands just opposite the mouth of Hvar harbour and decide whether you’d like to spend the afternoon on the seas or exploring glorious Hvar to see the largest city square in Dalmatia, the yacht Riva, the impressive fortress, and a delicious optional dinner in the Old Town. Ensure you are well lubricated for the night ahead with our on board happy hour before venturing out for a few too many Tequila Boom Booms at the atmospheric Kiva bar. Tonight we offer optional entrance to the Carpe Diem beach party to dance your night away to the entrancing deep house beats.
Day 7: Hvar to Korcula
We make an early departure this morning on our day long cruise to the charming island of Korcula. We spend the better part of the day relaxing on the deck and enjoying the view as we make our way south with an on board lunch and two refreshing swim stops. We arrive in the coastal paradise of Korcula in the afternoon and have an orientation walk to stretch our legs and highlight the sights. Grab a bite to eat in the Old Town before joining us back on the boat for another well deserved Happy Hour. Enjoy the sunset from a medieval tower as you enjoy a sundown cocktail or join us for an optional clubbing excursion to the dancefloors of the Boogie Jungle to go wild until the early morning in this unique outdoor clubbing setting.
Day 8: Korcula to Mljet to Sipan
We have an early start this morning as we set a course for Sipan. Enjoy breakfast on our short journey before our early arrival at the gorgeous National Park of Mljet. Take in the sights with an optional bike and boat hire or simply explore this natural beauty on foot or take a dip in its pristine lakes. After lunch we head for the large yet sparsely populated Sipan and enjoy a swim en route as we cruise into the quiet waters in the early evening. Tonight we hope you’ll join us for some fantastic food and drink, not to mention good times, at the optional Captain’s BBQ.
Day 9: Sipan to Dubrovnik
The sun rises on the final day of our adventure and what a journey it has been. We hoist anchor and, for the last time, carve a path through the pristine Adriatic heading to our final destination of Dubrovnik. We arrive at 9am ready for check-out!
