1st day: Saturday / SPLIT, STOBREČ - BRAČ, MILNA
Check in starts at 4 PM in a port of Stobreč, a small and quite place just 5 km distant from Split. After embarkation you`ll have enough time to make yourself at home and meet other guests and a crew. Before departure you will be served with a traditional welcome drink. After a short navigation we come to Milna where we`re going to spend our first night on board enjoying a homemade dinner and company. Milna is a small village on the western part of the island, located in a natural harbor which enchants with its baroque architecture and natural beauties. It originates from the 16th century and it was also known for its shipbuilding where the first typical Dalmatian boat ‘bracera’ was built.
2nd day: Sunday / BRAČ, MILNA - BRAČ, BOL - HVAR, JELSA
After breakfast which will be served on board, we continue our adventure towards Bol, more exactly for Zlatni Rat (the Golden Horn)- the most famous and the most beautiful Central Dalmatian beach, which is protected as a geomorphologic phenomenon for its beauty and peculiarities. It is located on the south coast of the island of Brač and it is recognizable for its triangular shape that keeps changing thanks to the tide, winds and currents. For the same reason it is very attractive to surfers. The town was first mentioned in 15th century and is considered to be the oldest coastal village on the island. It became especially attractive in 20th century with the development of tourism when the guests recognized all the advantages this unique little town had, and still has to offer. After lunch, which will be served on board, we sail to Jelsa, where we`re spending the night. Evening is free for your own activities. Jelsa is situated on the northern part of the island of Hvar, between two highest peaks of the island – St. Nicolas on the west and Hum on the east. Only 27 km away from the town of Hvar this fishing village offers more reasonable prices and more quiet entertainment, but also high quality service and excellent red wines from the most famous sorts of Plavac Mali and Plavac Veliki. Our recommendation would be Plavac Barrique, Ivan Dolac and Faros. If you prefer white wines we recommend Bogdanuša, Sv. Klement, Pošip and Svirče, and from other sorts you must try Drnekušica, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Kuč, Muškat rumeni and many other old autochthonous sorts.
3rd day: Monday / HVAR, JELSA – PELJEŠAC, LOVIŠTE
After breakfast we sail for the peninsula of Pelješac. On our way there we`re going to stop for a swim, and after lunch, which will be served on board, you will, again, have enough time to relax and enjoy all the benefits of this cruising. But the enjoyment does not finish yet. In the evening, your captain whom you`ll have a chance to get to know better, will prepare a special gift for you - the Captain`s Dinner. You will be served with traditional Dalmatian dishes. We`re spending the night in Lovište. Lovište is a small village on the peninsula of Pelješac which is known, among its visitors, as ‘The Oasis of Peace’ for its natural beauties and gastro offer. So close to all the big tourist destinations of South Adriatic, like Dubrovnik, Korčula, Mljet, and again so quiet and relaxing. For its position, great number of sun hours and extraordinary warm sea it is especially suitable for swimming.
4th day: Tuesday / PELJEŠAC – MLJET
After breakfast we continue our cruise towards the island of Mljet. You`ll spend the day relaxing, swimming and sunbathing. After lunch you`ll have a chance to visit the National Park Mljet (tickets are not included in the cruise price and you`ll have to pay additional 100 kn for adults and 50 kn for children and students). We`re spending the night on Mljet (in Polača or Pomena, depending on the weather conditions), where you can enjoy their extraordinary gastro offer. We especially recommend lobsters, which in restaurants on Mljet you can personally choose before the preparation. Because of the same name in Roman and later in Latin scripts, Mljet was throughout history very often mistaken for Malta, and that is why today, two worldly known legends of Homer`s Ulysses` and St. Paul`s shipwrecks are set to more famous and bigger Malta. As a reminder that ancient Ogigia could have been on Mljet too, today you can find the Ulysses` Cave and St. Paul`s Cliff, as well as a votive church on the east part of the island. The north-west part of the island was declared a national park in 1960 and today covers the area of 5.375 hectares of protected land and surrounding sea.
5th day: Wednesday / MLJET – KORČULA
We`re sailing to the island of Korčula, more precise the town of Korčula - the birthplace of a famous traveler-writer and adventurer Marco Polo. On our way there we`re going to stop for a swim and we`ll spend the night in this famous tourist destination of South Adriatic. You can spend the evening walking through this beautiful Dalmatian pearl or enjoying in numerous restaurants that charm their guests with the variety of gastro offer as well as with their view of the old town and the archipelago of the island of Korčula and the peninsula of Pelješac. For the first time Korčula was mentioned early in the 10th century, in works of Byzantine historians under the name ‘Stone Town’. It flourished under the Venetian government and later on it has spread around the town walls. Today it`s a town where you can vividly feel the Mediterranean spirit of people who live and work in this mixture of Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque architecture.
6th day: Thursday / KORČULA – HVAR
After breakfast we continue our cruise for Pakleni otoci ('The Hell Islands'). It is a group of small islands in front of the city of Hvar. In Croatian Pakleni means Hell, but in fact the islands got their name after Paklina, a sort of black rosin which was once used as a protective coat for boats (with time the word changed from Paklinski to Pakleni Islands). It is a unique and the most recognizable natural beauty of the island of Hvar. Surrounded by that beauty you will enjoy your lunch which will be served on board. In the afternoon or in the evening (depending on your preferences) transfer by dinghy will be organized for you to the city of Hvar. You will have to take a taxi-boat in the harbor to get back to the gulet, on which you will get additional information by your captain. Hvar is a tourist, administrative and cultural centre of the island. It is worldly known for its wild night life and numerous elite bars (Carpe Diem, Kiva, Jazz Cafe...), restaurants (Pasarola, Luna, Giaxa, Pirate sushi bar...) and hotels where many celebrities enjoyed themselves (Prince Harry, Eva Longoria, Beyonce...). But apart from that, Hvar is also very well known for its rich cultural and historical heritage and it will leave breathless guests of all age. We`re spending the night anchored.
7th day: Friday / HVAR – SPLIT, STOBREČ OR ŠOLTA
After breakfast we continue our cruise towards our final destination - Split. Depending on your return flight we can also spend our last night on board on the island of Šolta. On our way back we`ll be stopping for a swim and lunch which will be served on board.
8th day: Saturday / SPLIT, STOBREČ
Our last breakfast together will be served on board, after which we have to say goodbye to this fabulous gulet, the crew and, hopefully, new friends you have acquainted in these 7 days. Check out is by 9 AM. After check out you can visit, as we like to say, the most beautiful city in the world - Split! With its 1700 years-long history it offers so many things to see to its visitors, from cultural and historical heritage to entertainment. The place you musn`t, and can`t, avoid in Split is definitively Diocletian`s Palace. Built in the 3rd century it was created as a summer residence for the Roman emperor Diocletian, but with time the palace has become a city which today is the administrative, cultural and trade center of Split-Dalmatian County and second largest city in Croatia. The Palace itself was included in UNESCO`s World Heritage List in 1979. Apart from the Palace there are many other things to see in the city like the Diocletian`s substructures (cellars), the smallest and the oldest cathedral in the world - St. Duje`s Cathedral (the patron saint), numerous squares, museums, galleries, city park-forest Marjan... An interesting stop would be the statue of Grgur Ninski whose big toe you must touch and make a wish to make it come true.
For any additional questions you might have during the trip you can, at all times, ask the captain or any other crew
member, who are always at your disposal. We wish you an unforgettable cruising experience!
