4 Day Four island adventure from Split

 

–Brac, Hvar, Vis and Solta, plus the Pakleni archipelago

 

Our overnight sailing programs are PRIVATE tours  – meaning that you, your family or friends will be only guests on our boat during your tour.

Please note that all itineraries depend upon weather conditions and that they are given as an example of what can be done within booked number of days on a sailing boat. 

First, it’s the island of Brac, stopping in one of Milna’s many hidden bays for swimming and snorkelling (gear is included). After waking up in Hvar town we sail towards Bisevo, to experience its famous Blue cave. The second night we’re in Komiza on the island of Vis. Then we sail towards the archipelago of the Pakleni islands and later continue to Split.

 

 

DAY 1 SPLIT – MILNA (Brac) – HVAR (Hvar)

Sailing out from Split gives you a sea view of the city that’s unique. Enjoy the breeze as we head towards the island of Brac and the charming 16thC village of Milna, located on the western part of the island of Brac. It’s famous for it’s marvelous bays and being the birthplace of many of the worlds’ sailing captains and ships of the 18th and 19th century!  Time for some swimming and snorkeling—don’t worry, we have the gear!

It’s a leisurely sail from here to the island of Hvar, probably the most famous Croatian island because of so many travel magazine articles heralding its great wine, island sightseeing and hot party action!  And there is a lot to love about the lavender island–ancient villages, innumerable lavender fields, olive plantations and vineyards, enchanting stone streets and old Venetian palaces. We’ll spend the night on the boat, anchored in Hvar harbor. The old town’s  well-known summer night life awaits you!

 

DAY 2 HVAR- BISEVO – KOMIZA (Vis)

In the morning we’ll sail off to the Pakleni islands archipelago, a labyrinth of several smaller islands that offer perfect bays for swimming and snorkeling.

Then we continue towards the small island of Bisevo to experience its famous  “Blue Cave”. Accessible only by boat, the cave’s entrance is only 1.5 meters high and 2.5 meters wide. Between10AM and 1PM (13PM), the sunlight that penetrates through the opening in the Blue Cave and reflects off the white bottomed sea floor bathes the walls an ethereal blue–and objects in the water in silver. The sight is magical. After visiting the cave we will sail to one of the bays for swimming. If the weather is good, we might even visit the Green Cave, with a similar effect to the Blue Cave except in green!  Late afternoon, we’ll be on Vis, spending the night at Komiza, an authentic fishing village known all over the Adriatic.  Just 60 miles from the Italian coast, Vis is a very special island to locals and visitors alike.  Closed as a military base until the mid 1980’s it’s much less traveled and retains a lot of its gorgeous natural beauty.  Hard to imagine that in the 3rd C BC, this island, then called Issa, was the stronghold that the Greeks used to colonize the Dalmatian coast and rule supreme.  During WW2, Tito and the partisans also used Vis as a stronghold. Just offshore, asleep at the bottom of the sea, is a graveyard of WW2 planes and ships that make diving here a real adventure.

 

DAY 3  KOMIZA (Vis) – PAKLENI ISLANDS – SOLTA ISLAND

After morning coffee we leave Vis and sail back towards the Pakleni Islands, where our skipper will bring you to more beautiful bays for swimming, relaxing, and soaking up some sun. Then it’s on to our final island destination, Solta.

 

DAY 4 – SOLTA ISLAND – SPLIT

Solta, despite being the closest island to Split, is one of the least visited in the entire island region.  Known as the island of olives, honey and wine (an ancestor of Zinfandel was traced here and is only grown here), its 22 bays are a paradise for sailors and its curvy terrain makes it a must stop for bikers.  Enjoy the day swimming and relaxing as we sail back to Split. Check out in Split should be around 6PM  (18PM)
