Today is the day for enjoying the highlights of the central Dalmatian coast. After breakfast hop over to the island of Hvar, known for the purple of its lavender, the red of its wines and the Venetian feel of its hotspot Hvar. Join an optional guided walking tour of Hvar* (+$) or explore on your own before taking a refreshing swim near Pakleni otoci, the wondrous neighboring islands.

DAY 3 VELA LUKA (Island of Korčula) – POMENA (Island of Mljet) – SLANO (Monday)
Your captain will choose a secluded bay to hop in the sea and start the day. Surrounded in deep green forests which earned Korčula its name and fame, meditate upon the sound of crickets and silence as you immerse yourself in the essence of this region: the crystal blue sea. Then continue to another green island, this time Mljet. Join our optional excursion** (+$) to visit the national park itself, home of two salty lakes connected with the sea via a narrow canal. The bigger lake hides a charming islet in its center with a 12th-century Benedictine monastery. Spend the evening in the small settlement of Slano on the mainland, once adored by Dubrovnik’s Sea captains. Why becomes self-evident as soon as you take your first stroll along the waterfront.

In the vicinity of Slano, the small town of Ston claims its fame for many things gourmand: strong wines, ancient salt production and succulent oysters and mussels. Our optional tour, the Taste of Dalmatia* (+$) highlights all these treasures, but you can also just relax in Slano before sailing out to Dubrovnik. Midway, a dip in the Adriatic gets you up and ready to join an optional guided tour** (+$) of Dubrovnik’s Old Town. Surrounded by immense city walls, as if in a universe of its own, the world-famous facades line up as you walk the same streets as the cast and crews of Game of Thrones, Star Wars and Robin Hood. Enjoy an evening of romance, glitz and glam, as you will be staying in Dubrovnik overnight.

The far south of Croatia holds many gems. Scattered between Dubrovnik and Korčula, the Elaphite archipelago is alluring for its pristine islands which were once an oasis for local seamen to build their ships and for captains to build their estates. Today, the Elaphites are praised for their quaint ambiance. Stop for a swim before lunch on board en route to Korčula. You’ll know Korčula was a Venetian stronghold as soon as you lay your eyes on the many lion statues which lurk at you from the town’s facades and gates. The alleged home of the world-renowned traveler Marco Polo is bound to charm you whether you explore it on your own or in an optional walking tour* (+$). Overnight in Korčula.
Meals : Breakfast, Lunch

Breakfast is served on boat, navigating through the central dalmatian islands on one side and the high mountains of the mainland on the other. Enjoy a swim before lunch and then spend the afternoon in the beautiful seaside town of Makarska, certainly one of the highlights of Dalmatia. The imposing mountain range of Biokovo Nature Park* (+$) in the background offers a magnificent contrast to the coast with its fabulously beautiful turquoise blue beaches, all of which makes Makarska a true picture-book destination, a paradise both for adventure travelers and those seeking a relaxing beach vacation. Strolling through the historic town center, past small romantic alleys, and squares, you will discover many attractions worth seeing, including a small but interesting Seashell Museum (+$). Overnight in Makarska.

Breakfast is served over the stunning views of the playfully dispersed archipelago of islands and followed by a scenic sail, and even a refreshing dip along the way. Stop to visit the homeland of “the Croatian marble”, the island of Brač. You’ve probably seen this ultra-quality limestone already, perhaps on the front of the White House in Washington DC or Bundestag in Berlin, but the optional tour* (+$) to the still-operating stonemasonry school in Pučišća brings a chance to learn more about shaping this stone for eternity. Continue your sail to Split. Choose to explore Split on your own or join an optional walking tour* (+$) of Split’s famous Diocletian Palace. Built to house the Roman Emperor, the Palace grew into a city after Slavs ruined the nearby Roman town of Salona. With our local guide, discover the secrets of centuries past in what is today the vibrant core of Dalmatia’s largest city. Overnight in Split.
