6 Day Split to Dubrovnik Odyssey

visiting Brac, Hvar, Vis, Korcula and Mljet

 

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.

 This extended program includes Miljet, an island national park and “pearl of the Adriatic”, the walled city of Dubrovnik! 

 

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

Starting in Split we first visit the island of Brac with time to swim or snorkel (gear included) in Milna, a small 16thC village located on the western part of the island.

Then we continue towards the island of Hvar which is famed for its sunny days, surrounding crystal blue waters with nearby seductive islands, ancient villages, innumerable lavender fields, olive plantations and vineyards, enchanting stone streets and old Venetian palaces in the proud old town of Hvar. Overnight in Hvar harbor giving you a chance to enjoy the island’s very cool (or hot!) night life!

 

DAY 2 HVAR – KOMIZA (Vis)

After indulging yourself in local wine, cocktails or just coffee, we leave the town of Hvar in the morning and sail off to the Pakleni islands archipelago, a labyrinth of several smaller islands that offer perfect bays for swimming and snorkelling.

If the weather suits us, we might even visit the Green Cave, with a similiar effect to the Blue Cave except in green!

We arrive during late afternoon in Komiza on the island of Vis, and spend the night there. Vis is the most outerly lying larger Croatian island in the Adriatic Sea. Its turbulent history goes back to the time of Neolithics, through the Greek period to the time when Venice was governing the island. After the 2nd WW it was closed to the public, due to it’s use as a military base for the Yugoslav army. After Croatia’s independence, Vis today is an island proud of its limpid waters and protected submarine world, rich with sunken ships and magic marine images that have been hidden for years.

 

DAY 3  KOMIZA – BISEVO (BLUE CAVE) – KORCULA island

From Komiza we continue towards the small island of Bisevo. Its area is 5.8 km, and it has only 19 inhabitants. The island has several caves, the most famous being the “Blue Cave”, which is accessible since 1884, and only by boat. It is 18 meters long, 6 meters deep and 6 meters high. The cave’s entrance is only 1.5 meters high and 2.5 meters wide. Around 10am to 1pm, the sunbeams that penetrate through the submarine opening in the Blue Cave reflect from the white bottom floor and colour the cave in 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.

Every sunny day, between 10AM and 1PM (13PM), the light that penetrates through the submarine opening in the Blue Cave reflects off the white bottom floor and bathes the interior in blue. and objects in the water in silver. It’s an extraordinary experience!  After visiting the cave we will sail to one of the bays for swimming.

We will continue our tour from Bisevo towards the west part of Korcula island, Proizd island or one of great small bays on the western point of Korcula island. Overnight in small bays of Korcula island. 

 

DAY 4  KORCULA ISLAND TO KORCULA TOWN

In the morning we will sail out from the bay towards the town of Korcula. After stopping in beautiful bays for a swim, we arrive in Korcula town. The island of Korcula belongs to the central Dalmatian archipelago, separated from the Peljesac peninsula by the narrow Peljesac strait. It’s the sixth largest Adriatic island and second most populated island in Croatia, with 16,180 inhabitants. Korcula town is the main town on the island, famous for its medieval walls and a succession of narrow streets that are patterned after a fish skeleton, with street “bones” that branch off used to reduce the effects of wind and sun.  The architecture of the Old Town is a stunning ensemble of Venetian Renaissance public and private buildings. As you walk through the old town, be sure not to miss the splendid St Mark’s Cathedral, built in the Gothic-Renaissance style, completed in 15th century.  The white wine here is world-famous—Posip, Grk and Rukutac!

 

DAY 5 KORCULA – MLJET (POLAČE)

After breakfast we will continue our sailing from Korcula to Mljet island. Mljet is the most southerly and easterly of the larger Adriatic islands of the Dalmatia region of Croatia. The National Park is at the western part of the island, covering an area of 54 km 2, including Veliko jezero (The Great Lake), Malo jezero (The Small Lake), Soline Bay and a sea belt 500m wide from the most prominent cape of Mljet.
