We welcome you to check in then we leave the marina sailing under the impressive Franjo Tudman Bridge, heading for the gorgeous and unspoilt Elafiti Islands. Our first evening we eat in a traditional konoba (restaurant) looking out to sea. This charming konoba still houses an ancient olive oil press; a stone wheel turned by donkeys to crush the olives. Wake up in time for a morning swim and a walk around this picturesque village, find classic Croatian homes made from the sand coloured stone that is typical of this region.

Today we set sail for the island of Mljet sailing on the 'road less travelled' outside of the Island, stopping for a unique Cave swim at Ulysses Cave en route. Arriving at Pomena in the afternoon, we moor in front of our amazing fresh fish restaurant where you will be served by the fisherman who caught your supper! Round off the evening with a walk around the bay to a waterfront cocktail bar. Tomorrow morning you have the time to enjoy the salt water lakes in the heart of Mljet National Park. This can be reached in a 15 minute walk or an energetic cycle ride. It is a stunning area of natural beauty and well worth the effort to explore.

After a morning explore of the national park, it’s on to Korcula, the reputed birthplace of Marco Polo. Korcula is a vibrant, exciting place, a mini fortress enclosed with honey coloured stone walls. Around the city walls you will find many bars and coffee shops where you can sit and watch the world go by. We arrive early to enjoy everything this island has to offer. Meander the labyrinth of the old towns' narrow streets, delightful to get lost along the way. Aim to find your way to the gothic renaissance building of St Marks Cathedral. There are many historical buildings to view and explore and boutiques and galleries with locally produced arts and crafts. All this, set amongst spectacular scenery and a backdrop of dense pine tree forests. Round off the afternoon by sipping cocktails at the trendy Bar Massimo. This exquisite cocktail bar is situated high up a narrow castle-like staircase in the old guard tower right on the waterfront with spectacular sunset views out to sea.






Korcula in the morning is a unique experience. Not as much hustle and bustle as in the evening so take a morning wander and enjoy taking uninterrupted photos. We then set sail out to one of the best sailing areas in Croatia. Sailing in these waters offers a different perspective of the stunning coastline, whilst enjoying the favourable sailing conditions in this section of the Korcula Channel. Take the helm or sit back and enjoy the ride. If you love to sail, today is a great day! After mooring the yachts, we have a very special evening planned. We leave the island by water taxi and invite you to indulge your palette for some wine tasting in the most stunning location. After sampling wines looking directly out to sea, we take you up into the hills to a rustic restaurant setting with stunning views across to Korcula and some of the islands we have visited. Try the walnut, raisin or herb rakija (local Brandy) as an apéritif then taste a delicious Croatian dish called Peka, which consists of seafood or meat. Tonight’s night cap is at the sandy beach bar close to our yachts.

Enjoy a morning coffee onshore, possibly a massage on the beach and local watersports before departing for a relaxing sail along the Peljesac Coast. Another amazing swim stop today en route to Polace to complete your exploration of the National Park. Hire a moped, kayak around the bay, cycle into the park or take a ride on the park bus. Once in the park visit the small island of St Marija's 12th Century Benedictine Monastery via a small boat trip. Dine at our favourite al fresco restaurant in Polace serving fresh seafood and other traditional Croatian delicacies. Watch your freshly caught fish or lamb ribs on the large grill by the chef whilst looking out onto the beautiful bay.




Today we enjoy a leisurely sail to a charming fishermen's village. Stretch your legs to walk to a tiny beach where you can take an afternoon swim. This family run konoba is in a picturesque setting in the corner of this stunning bay. End the evening in the harbourside cocktail bar, possibly dancing the night away under the stars.

Wake up and treat yourself to a cooked breakfast at one of the waterfront cafes. We then sail towards Kolocep where we will swim, lunch and add the final touches to the tan. We set sail to return to the marina taking in the fabulous Dubrovnik coastline. You have your last evening in Dubrovnik to exchange contact numbers and to share the memories of your trip.



Check out from the yacht (if you need to check out Friday evening just let us know). We say a fond farewell and leave you to continue to explore this great city of Dubrovnik or fly to wherever your home may be.

There is no dress code on this holiday. Lounging on deck or swimming during the day won’t require much more than sunglasses, a bikini / swim trunks and a coverup if preferable.

Comfortable casual wear is the norm in the evenings but the Island of Korcula is also known for its nightlife/clubs and the walled city is filled with beautiful cocktail bars and restaurants so if you want to take the opportunity to dress up for the evening, Korcula is the place to do it.



Breakfast is a casual affair generally eaten onboard before sailing. If there is time in the mornings before setting sail, you are most welcome to eat breakfast onshore or sit and have a coffee in the harbour cafes. We anchor at a secluded bay each day for a swim and lunch on deck.



This is a wonderful social dining experience at traditional konobas onshore. You will pay for all your own meals and beverages throughout the evening. Vegetarian options are also available so please let us know any dietary requirements in advance.




Information to help search for flights:

Closest Airport: Dubrovnik International (there is only one and it is 25-30 mins by taxi to the marina)

Start/End Location: Dubrovnik

Check-in: 15.30 - Saturday

Check-out: 08.00 - Saturday (Early departure is possible since the yachts return to Dubrovnik on Friday afternoon at 1600. You have free overnight stay onboard).

Visiting Dubrovnik Old Town: If it helps avoid the cost of accommodation, the last night of our trip (Friday night) can be used to visit Dubrovnik Old Town because the yachts return to the marina which is only 15 mins by road to the Old Town. Many guests having met on our trips visit Dubrovnik Old Town together as a group and return to the yacht to sleep before checkout the next morning.

Note:  Airlines are using cookies to recognise when you return to their website, which can artificially inflate the price of flights each time you return. If possible, try to research from one computer/phone but make the booking from a different device. Many guests have successfully booked the same flights cheaper by doing this.
