Party, adventure, and cruise your way through Croatia to the awesome Ultra festival!
Life is about the build up. Pre-drinking is as fun as the club. Shopping is as satisfying as wearing the clothes. And the flirting is more exciting than the relationship. This tour has the best build up to one of Europe’s most hip-shakingly good festivals. You spend seven nights sailing to the divine islands, ancient vistas, and secret clubs of Croatia before rocking up to the explosive Ultra festival. The best thing is that the world class DJs, epic fireworks, and crowds of international party animals ensure that this trip never ends with an anti-climax!
We spend 10 days exploring Croatia. We visit Split, Stari Grad , Hvar, Mljet, Dubrovnik, Korcula, Makarska, Omis.

Ultra Island Hopper Split to Split 10 Days 10 day full itinerary breakdown and route map
Split to Stari Grad
Your adventure begins as we hoist anchor and set sail from Split harbour this afternoon. Once on board, take a load off while your delicious lunch is prepared as we head towards Stari Grad. We have an easy first day cruising the blue seas, making our way to Stari Grad, the beautiful cultured little town set on the north coast of Hvar Island, taking our first dip in the azure waters of the Adriatic en route. When we arrive into paradise, you can choose to join us for an optional excursion to a local wine farm. Trust us, you won’t want to miss this. Here you can try a traditional pot of delicious Dalmatian peka, as well as olive oil and wine tasting as the sun sets over the Stari Grad plains in this unique location and you get to know your fellow crew mates. What a life!
Stari Grad to Hvar
This evening we make our way around the island to Hvar town. Hop back into the azure waters near Zlatni Rat beach for a swim this morning, and get yourself feeling fresh! Then enjoy every bite of your delicious onboard lunch and another swim stop near the Pakleni Islands this afternoon before Hvar this evening. We will then go on an orientation walk of this celeb hotspot to get familiar with Hvar and its tonne of interesting locations, including the largest city square in Dalmatia, the yacht Riva, and the fortress. We enjoy a delicious optional dinner in the Old Town this evening, then afterwards take in the eclectic nightlife with a party in the Kiva Bar (and perhaps one too many Tequila Boom Booms!). For those who want to keep the party going, we’ve got optional entrance to the Carpe Diem beach party to dance your night away to entrancing house beats!
Hvar to Mljet
We depart Hvar early this morning and will be serving breakfast as we chase the sun on our morning meander to Mljet. We have a swim stop on the way, followed by another delectable onboard lunch. We drop anchor in Mljet after lunch, and the entire afternoon is yours to wander the island at your leisure. The island is home to a large national park with pine forests and abundant nature surrounding two salt lakes, so get exploring! There’s swimming, biking, sightseeing, and boating on offer. Later, have a few sundowners and prepare for a truly picturesque setting as the Happy Hour coincides with the sunset. Tonight we invite you to join us for some fantastic food, drink, and good times at the optional Captain’s BBQ. You don’t want to miss this!
Mljet to Dubrovnik
We get moving early this morning, as we sail to Dubrovnik! Breakfast will be served as we make our way along the Croatian coast. We have a swim stop in the crystal blue waters and lunch shortly before arriving in this stunning city. We’ll start off with an orientation walk to reintroduce you to solid earth and the awesome sights around you. If ‘winter is coming’, partake in a Game of Thrones walking tour of the city and walk the perimeter wall, or explore some surviving renaissance architecture such as the glorious Sponza Palace. Make the most of Happy Hour before our delicious dinner in the Old Town. Afterwards explore Dubrovnik’s vibrant nightlife and party inside a 15th century fortress at Club Revelin!
Dubrovnik to Korcula
We hoist anchor and make our departure from Dubrovnik. Enjoy a sleep in, or relax on deck before chowing down some breakfast. We have a swim stop before lunch as we make our way to the island of Korcula. We make our island arrival 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 the Old Town for a scrumptious optional Croatian meal. Tonight we offer an optional clubbing experience at outdoor party hotspot Boogie Jungle - so the party animals among you should be sure not to miss out on Korcula’s unique nightlife experience!
Korcula to Makarska
We depart Korcula as the Adriatic carries us silently to the coast of mainland Croatia and onward to our destination of Makarska. Get the water wings ready as we have two swim stops today - one this morning and another after we’ve enjoyed our lunch. We arrive this afternoon and to help you get your bearings, we’ll start with an orientation walk together. You’ll get the chance to check out all the amazing sights in this location set at the base of the Biokovo mountains. Why not treat yourself to a massage, check out the Riviera, relax in one of the many cafes or bars, or do a bit of shopping? Get the drinks in and get your game face on during our onboard Happy Hour this evening and optional Captain’s Dinner to ensure you have the energy required to rave in a (literal) cave until the early hours!
Makarska to Omis to Split
We make tracks (or waves) early today as we head to the town of Omis. We’ll arrive after breakfast to have an orientation walk of the town, including a hike up to Fort Mirabella, a fortress that was once used to defend the town and has also been a hideout for pirates! The battlements now make for awe-inspiring views and excellent photo opportunities, so don’t forget your camera. We then make our way to Split with a delicious lunch served enroute. We arrive into Split after lunch and begin with an orientation walk of Croatia’s second largest city and her many attractions. Tonight we have our first night of partying at Ultra Europe! Remember to stay hydrated as you dance the night away and the bass shakes the very ground underfoot.
Relax, recover and rise late! Chill on the deck with an ice cold drink before grazing on some lunch and revitalising yourself with a swim off the island of Brac. Once refreshed we’ll cruise back to Split this afternoon with a few Happy Hour drinks on board to prepare for a second round of Ultra as we enjoy another crazy night of fantastic music and dance. This is the halfway mark, so if FOMO is a no-no, pace yourself as there is still plenty to experience in this party paradise!
As the sun shines on the penultimate day of this epic adventure, take your time to refuel in the morning onboard as we cruise out for your final swim stop in a nearby secluded bay as we recharge one final time with lunch on board and a few drinks on the way back to Split, where you’ll have some free time to explore Split’s buzzing Roman Old Town a bit more. Just make sure you’re ready for the final night - the big one to send it all off! Once more we delve into the fray for another night of festival madness. It’s time to party like there’s no tomorrow and lose yourself to the music.
Day 10: Split
We check out at 9am today. 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.
