Split

Before you experience the islands of Northern Croatia by sea, spend the morning wandering nearby old towns. Explore Diocletian's Palace in Split Old Town, considered to be one of the most imposing Roman ruins. Or spend time in Old Town Trogir, which is built entirely of stone and due to its preserved look, visitors have named it “The Stone Beauty”.

Meet your crew at the marina in Trogir before we set sail for the sleepy island of Solta. Enjoy an afternoon exploring on a paddleboard or relax in the sun with your favourite book. In the evening dine at a konoba, enjoying delicious local wines and the famous local delicacy Peka.

Day 2

Kaprije

Today we sail to the small island of Kaprije. With only 1 village and 160 inhabitants, Kaprije is the perfect place to explore coves, bays and experience untouched nature. Meet friendly locals and enjoy the slower pace of life. With no roads or vehicles on the island you'll feel like you've been transported to another age.

Day 3

Skradin & Krka Waterfalls

After a morning swim we'll make our way to the beautiful stone town of Skradin, situated on the river Krka. This is perfectly situated to explore the Krka National Park and once you have had your fill of enjoying the scenic waterfalls, famous local vineyard Bibich is a short transfer away and a stunning way to round off the day.

Day 4

Dugi Otok

Dubbed an oasis of peace, our first night in the Kornati National Park takes us to the remote Northern Islands allowing for a day of relaxation and rest. Discover white pebble beaches, turquoise shallow bays and aromatic wild herbs dotted around the landscape providing the perfect backdrop to enjoy unspoilt nature at its best.

Day 5

Kornati National Park

After breakfast and a swim, we'll head towards Telašćica Bay on Kornati National Park, one of the most beautiful and largest natural ports in the Adriatic. With 6 islets and cliffs inside the bay, and 25 small coves on the 69 km indented coastline, this is the best opportunity for discovering the rich underwater world and caves.

Day 6

Rogoznica

This morning we set sail to the quiet town of Rogoznica known for its beautiful stone houses and is also where the famous Bura and Jugo winds meet. Take a visit to the Dragon’s Eye seawater lake, a natural wonder well known amongst adrenaline seekers. It is also the origin of some of the most fascinating of Croatian folklore.

Day 7 & 8

Split

Enjoy breakfast and a final morning swim before we journey back to Split. Your skipper will stop at some stunning bays for swimming along the way so you can take in the last of Croatia's beauty.
