Dive into turquoise waters, go to a cave rave, wander ancient fortresses, and see all coastal treasures!
Picture it: it’s the day after a huge night out, you’re cosied-up in bed watching a perpetual parade of Netflix shows and filling your mouth with the greasiest foods known to mankind. We’ve all been there, that’s the hangover cure! But what if we told you there was another way? Party harder than you’ve ever partied at Ultra, be swept away by wild fireworks, bamboozling DJs, and more jaw-dropping sights than you can shake a camera at. Once the insanity has died down, board our timeless vessels and set off on a sailing adventure around Croatia. Devour BBQs on deck, dive into turquoise waters, wander ancient fortresses, and see all of Croatia’s tucked-away, coastal treasures. Forget Netflix, this is the ultimate hangover cure!

9 Day Itinerary
Ultra One-Way Sail Split to Dubrovnik 9 day full itinerary breakdown and route map
Our adventure begins in the beautiful Adriatic city of Split. Settle in, then head out to explore the city and its numerous attractions. Shake off the cobwebs with our Busabout Ultra warm up because tonight we’re kicking off the tour at one of the continent’s biggest festivals, Ultra Europe! Throw shapes on the dancefloor and let the rhythmic bassline transport you to dizzying heights. Should you require anything, the Busabout team will be on hand to assist you in any way possible.
It’s hard to know where to begin with Split, with its range of gorgeous beaches and fun activities at every turn. Hit the shops and bars of the ancient streets of the Roman Old Town to explore further, or head to nearby Bacvice beach. Enjoy an optional traditional dinner and some drinks in one of the many restaurants in Split to ensure you’re well hydrated for the night to come. Tonight, we enjoy another night of great music and dance with our Busabout team on hand to assist. This is Ultra’s halfway point, so if FOMO is a no-no, pace yourself as there is still plenty to come!
Take it slow today in anticipation of our last evening at Ultra with a dip in the Adriatic to make the most of your pristine surroundings. The day is yours to recover at leisure. Maybe escape the city vibes and explore the nearby Marjan Peninsula covered in luscious pine forests, dotted with secluded bays and beachfront bars, before absorbing the pre-party atmosphere along Split’s buzzing Riva waterfront. Grab a bite for dinner and make sure you’re ready for the final night, the pinnacle of your Ultra Europe experience. Once more into the fray, as we depart for our final night of festival madness: the Ultra finale!
Split to Makarska
We know you probably don’t feel like moving after last night’s escapades, but we promise you won’t be going far. We’ll check-out of our accommodation and board our fantastic vessel for some morning sunbathing and relaxation. This afternoon we’ll hoist anchor and cast off, enjoying lunch on-board as we make our way along the stunning Croatian coastline to Makarska with a swim stop en route for a refreshing dip in the Adriatic. Later, we’ll arrive at the base of the Biokovo mountains where you’re free to chill on the beach or take part in a myriad of water sports. Alternatively, you can check out the town for some shopping or impressive sights. 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 of raving in a cave. - Lunch included
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. Soon we’ll arrive at the breathtaking waters of Zlatni Rat for a picture-perfect swim stop. Have a tasty lunch on-board as we traverse the seas and make our way to historic Stari Grad. Old Town certainly lives up to its name with architecture dating back to 384 BC. Tonight, we’ll enjoy a uniquely Croatian experience at a local wine farm. We’ll kick things off with some olive oil tasting, followed by traditional peka for dinner. When the food’s settled, we’ll cap things off with a wine tasting as the sun sets over the Stari Grad plains. - Breakfast and lunch included
Stari Grad to Hvar
Hearty Hvar beckons and we answer its boisterous call. Enjoy a swim stop en route in the azure waters of the Pakleni Islands, conveniently just opposite the mouth of Hvar harbour. Then, either spend the afternoon on the seas or exploring glorious Hvar to see the largest city square in Dalmatia, and the impressive fortress. Ensure you’re well hydrated for the night ahead with our on-board happy hour before venturing out for the famous Tequila Boom Booms at the atmospheric Kiva bar. Tonight, we offer optional entrance to the Carpe Diem beach party to seize the day and dance the night away to the entrancing house beats! - Breakfast and lunch included
Hvar to Korcula
No time to hang around, we’re cruising over to the charming island of Korcula where we’ll spend the better part of the day relaxing on the deck and enjoying the many views as we make our way south. Of course, a boat day wouldn’t be complete without an on-board lunch and two refreshing swim stops. Come afternoon, we’ll arrive in the coastal paradise of Korcula, kicking things off with an orientation walk. 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 sip on a cocktail. - Breakfast and lunch included
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 we arrive early at the Mljet’s gorgeous National Park. 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 serene pine fringed lakes. After lunch, we’re heading for the large, yet sparsely populated, Sipan. We’ll enjoy a swim en route before cruising into Sipan’s quiet waters come early evening. Tonight, we hope you’ll join us for some fantastic food, drink and good times at the optional Captain’s BBQ! - Breakfast and lunch included
Sipan to Dubrovnik
The sun rises on the final day of our adventure and what a journey it’s been! We hoist anchor early and, for the last time, carve a path through the pristine Adriatic heading to our final destination of Dubrovnik. We arrive early, ready for check-out! - Breakfast included
