12:00 Departure from Split
One of the best ways to start your cruising holiday is from Split. The Split is the largest city of the region of Dalmatia with the largest airport and is surrounded with "must see" Islands like Brač, Šolta, Hvar, and Vis. Split is 1700-year-old city and UNESCO World Heritage site.
If you go to Croatia little before departure date, we are suggest you personally visit Trogir too. Split and Trogir are two historic coastal towns with long historical tradition. You have a chance to explore these beautiful cities, and there are a lot of options for sightseeing.
You board our sailing yacht at midday, and you start your private cruising.
Note: If you already in Hvar or Vis, we can go with our sailing yacht for you on your actual location and start cruising from there too (small additional fee apply only).
Day 1: Brač island: Milna village
Island Brač is the third largest island in the Adriatic. Brač provides visitors with better feeling local Dalmatian culture, gastronomy, bays, and beaches. Milna is a village in the western part of the island located in a protected natural harbor which is famous for natural beauties, Dalmatian architecture, and long shipbuilding tradition. In this beautiful bay, even the ships of the Roman emperor Diocletian used to find a safe harbor during the building of his magnificent palace in Split.
Day 2: Krknjasi: Blue lagoon
Krknjasi bay on the east coast of the island Veli Drvenik is known as the Blue Lagoon because of crystal clear sea with lighter and darker blue spots which create a tropical paradise feeling. This natural gem is protected with two islands from the outside, large (Veliki) and small (Small) Krknjas. The nice sandy sea bottom is excellent for snorkeling, swimming and spends time in pure nature " stress-free" on the yacht. Popular Dalmatian restaurant exists near the beach on shore, and this makes the option to go to lunch or take a drink for someone who goes to the shore side.
Day 3: Brač island: Bol
Zlatni Rat beach (English: Golden Horn or Golden Cape) is the greatest attraction and the most representative panorama of Bol for tourists usually. Because their unique location pretty often there have little more wind than on other places and the beach is an excellent place to make sports activities and rent windsurfing, kitesurfing, kayaks, parasailing, and all other water sports equipment. Zlatni Rat has been regularly listed as one of the top beaches in Europe. Its distinctive shape can be seen in many travel brochures, which made it one of the symbols of Croatian tourism. However, a visitor must take care to avoid days when "sail week" events are organized because on these days the place is radically busy and port is in advance fully reserved. This is just one day per week usually, but smart is take care of that detail if you are private plan cruising to Bol.
Day 4: Hvar island: Stari Grad
Stari Grad (English: "Old Town") is a place on the northern side of the island of Hvar in Dalmatia (opposite side from city Hvar). One of the oldest Dalmatian spots in Europe, its position at the end of a long, protected bay and next to prime agricultural land has long made it attractive for human settlement. The most ancient part of Stari Grad falls within the UNESCO Protected World Heritage Site. Petar Hektorović (1487–1572) was a famous Croatian poet, writer, and author and he was born and died in Stari Grad. His Tvrdalj Castle is good to see the place here, and it is as we recommend one of the top 6 things to do in Stari Grad. Great place to see, especially if you try to avoid too crowded “hot spots” as an example is Hvar city.
Day 5: Vis island: Vis town
Island Vis was first populated back in pre-history by the Neolithic period. In the 4th century BC, the Greek tyrant of Syracuse, Dionysius the Elder, founded the colony Issa on the island. Later, it became an independent polis, and even minted its own money and established its individual colonies. The town of Vis is found in a secluded bay, and the island is one of Croatia's best kept secret tourist spots. Vis is a must visit for any discerning tourist seeking a quiet respite.
Day 6: Hvar Island: Hvar town
Hvar town is a heart of nightlife of all middle Dalmatian islands. Hvar have beautiful beaches, exclusive bays, and is "must see" place without any doubt. The island is one of Croatia's most popular sites and is a preferred destination of jet-setters too. If you want to anchor in a more secluded location, there is the Pakleni Islands chain nearby.
Day 7: Pakleni islands
The Pakleni Islands are located on the opposite side of the entrance to the Hvar (city) harbor. This is a chain of small islands approximately 10 kilometers (6.2 mi) long, formed of limestone, with a very indented coastline and low pine forest with black pine, and aleppo pine. The Pakleni Islands are a popular and "must see" destination for Hvar city visitors providing numerous peaceful coves for snorkeling, swimming and live "stress-free" on the yacht in pure nature.
12:00 Arrival to Split: Departure/End of tour
We are end in Split usually. However, we are end often in city Hvar too (small additional fee apply only), because lot people continue to vacation there and then take a quick and cheap catamaran to Dubrovnik. This is a good trick to see more, but less time cruise on a sailing yacht as cruising is usually more luxury and more expensive way :-).
