9 Day Itinerary
Ultra Island Hopper Split to Split 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 Hvar
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 to heavenly Hvar. Enjoy a swim stop en route in the glistening waters of the Pakleni Islands, found just opposite the mouth of Hvar Town harbour which we’ll explore this evening. See the largest city square in Dalmatia, and the impressive fortress in this popular celeb hang out. After our on-board happy hour, head out for a few 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 entrancing house beats. - Lunch included
Hvar to Mljet
We depart Hvar early this morning, chasing the sun on our morning meander to 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 exciting new lands. Mljet is home to a sprawling national park with pine forests surrounding 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 laughs aplenty at the optional Captain’s BBQ! - Breakfast and lunch is included

Up goes the anchor as we depart for Dubrovnik. Feast on breakfast as we make our way along the Croatian coast. We’ll dip ourselves in the Adriatic during our swim stop before enjoying lunch and continuing onwards to Dubrovnik. Upon arrival we’ll embark on an orientation walk to reintroduce you to solid earth and the awesome sights around you. Winter is coming, so partake in a Game of Thrones walking tour of the city where you’ll peruse the perimeter wall. Alternatively, explore some surviving renaissance architecture such as the glorious Sponza Palace. Happy hour will start in the evening, so make sure you’re well hydrated for our delicious dinner in the Old Town. Afterwards, explore Dubrovnik’s vibrant nightlife and party inside a 15th century fortress at Club Revelin! - Breakfast and lunch included
Dubrovnik to Korcula
Today we’re cruising over to the charming island of Korcula! We’ll spend the morning relaxing on the deck and enjoying the many views.

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 cocktails. - Breakfast and lunch included
Korcula to Makarska
We depart Korcula as the day begins and let the Adriatic carry us silently to the coast of mainland Croatia, and onward to our destination of Makarska. Break out the water wings for a refreshing dip in the Adriatic, then kick back and relax as you’re served a scrumptious on-board lunch. 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.
