Day by day

 

DAY 1 SATURDAY - DUBROVNIK TO ELAPHITI ISLANDS

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) overlooking a small fisherman's harbour.

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.

First meal: D - Onshore at First Island

Docking: Fishing Harbour - Walk On/Off as you wish

 

DAY 2 SUNDAY - ELAPHITI ISLANDS TO MLJET (POLACE)

Mljet National Park is a large area that borders two saltwater lakes that stretch for about 4 kilometres. We arrive at Polace where there is an entrance to visit the National Park and very close to the lake to visit the small island/islet Melita (Sveta Marija) with a large building of the former Benedictine monastery, built in the 12th century. You can hire mopeds and convertible cars to explore the rest of the Island, or use the standup paddleboards in the relaxing lagoon.

DAY 3 MONDAY - MLJET (POLACE) TO KORCULA

According to legend, the island of Korcula was founded by Trojan hero Antenor in the 12th century BC. It is a spectauclar medieval walled city reputed to be Marco Polo's birthplace. It is very much a cocktail bar atmosphere with lasting sunsets and live music quarters to relax at with a drink after dinner. The island is twinned with Rothesay in Scotland.

Docking: ACI Marina Korcula - Walk On/Off as you wish

 

DAY 4 TUESDAY - KORCULA TO SCEDRO

Scedro is a protected nature park and an island 2.7 kilometres off the south coast of the island of Hvar. The name comes from štedri, meaning charitable in old Slavonic, because the island offers two deep, well-protected coves. According to the centuries-old Hvar Statute of 1331, the island was communal property and reserved for use as a pasture because it is very fertile, with a mild climate. Thanks to night dew it was used to grow grain. Around 30 people live on the island in summer.

DAY 5 WEDNESDAY - SCEDRO TO HVAR + STARIGRAD + VRBOSKA - ** EXPLORER DAY **

Hvar Island is best known as a summer resort. The highlights of Hvar port town include its 13th-century walls, a hilltop fortress and a main square anchored by the Renaissance-era Hvar Cathedral. The island has a hidden and fascinating museum of intricate work made from strands of the algarve plant, and also features beaches such as Dubovica and inland lavender fields.

** Explorer Day ** - as a mid-week opportunity to enjoy Hvar Town before the party crowds arrive, we drop you off at the water's edge from where you can explore the harbour and the Island as you wish. After Hvar harbour, make your way overland to Starigrad (the original capital of the Island) then onto Vrboska the village of bridges and a striking fortified church the only one of its kind in the area. The boat will be docked here in the marina for a quiet night's sleep.

DAY 6 THURSDAY - STARIGRAD TO BRAC (MILNA) + BOL

After a morning swim at Bol we arrive in Milna; still reputed as the most beautiful and the safest harbour of Brač. Stone houses along the beautiful long coastline are small masterpieces of plebeian architecture. In the village there is aslo a beautiful Baroque church with a typically Dalmatian bell tower. The interior of the church hides impressive works of Venetian masters. Its scenic beauty and irresistible charm of a typically Dalmatian “small town”, Milna will enchant you with its healthy Mediterranean cuisine abundant in fresh fish, quality olive oil and home-made wines.

Airline Tricks

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.

 

THE GETAWAY SAILING DIFFERENCE

Checking In

For your convenience we have our own check-in centre inside ACI Marina Dubrovnik.

We are the first check-in office en route with a large four metre high Getaway Sailing flag to stand out.

We are the only 'foreign / non-Croatian' company to have an office inside the marina which means you can easily find us and relax on arrival because we aren't checking you in on the footpath amongst the crowds.

Private Transfers

If you are arriving by car we are the closest check-in office to the drop-off location at the front of the Marina. You will have the opportunity to organise a private transfer with us by requesting it online in our Client Login area.

Rental Cars

If you are renting a car before or after your sailing holiday, you can connect seamlessly from car to boat or boat to car by booking your rental car through us. The car rental provider will then dropoff or collect your car from our office.

Reviews

 

"This Dubrovnik to Split trip was exactly what we were looking for. The Hvar overland explorer was excellent and perfectly timed in the middle of the trip too! It was so great to have the chance to see all three places on Hvar - Hvar Town, Starigrad and Vrboska! Well done Getaway Sailing on a truly unique aspect to this very established sailing route."

Delna and James - Sydney, Australia

"Thanks Getaway Sailing for making my dream come true. The National Park is spectacular and we saw dolphins which is amazing having them swim beside our boat."

Hills - Oxford, U.K.

"The Catamaran was awesome! Croatia has spectacular scenery, and perfect weather. A truly memorable holiday. There were four couples on the boat and everyone commented on the attention to detail from this company and their Welcome Pack of info. It put us at ease immediately and their checkin centre in Dubrovnik Marina made arrival and departure very smooth . The hardest thing was waiting 9 months for the holiday! ."

Gordon - Perth, Australia

"We were invited by our friends doing this trip and so happy we did! The swimming and Island hopping during the day was incredible, but the evening stops were exceptional. The combination of food, location and atmosphere onboard the Catamaran was really special. Having a local skipper that took us to a few of the hidden places was extra special"

 Andy and Fiona - London, U.K.

"I' wish I'd tried a sailing holiday years ago! It is so different being able to see a new place each day without packing the bags! Thanks to our skipper Ivan and Georgia for organising it all."

Peter - Swansea, U.K.

"Thank you very much for a fantastic trip. Perfect combination of fishing villages and the buzzing Hvar"

Thor - Svelvik, Norway
