DAY 4 • TUESDAY KORČULA - VIS
In the morning, we’ll continue our cruise to the Island of
Vis, with a swim stop en route. Arrival to Vis is scheduled
for the afternoon. Vis is rather unique compared to other
Croatian Adriatic islands. Due to its important strategic
location on the open sea, it served as a military zone for a
long time and was consequently spared of the usual tourist
development. Beautiful beaches, ecological agriculture and
preserved traditional architecture make up the advantages
of this remarkable Croatian island. You will have afternoon
and evening free in Vis, to enjoy its unspoilt nature and
dine in one of family run restaurants.
Overnight in Vis Town, (B,L)
DAY 5 • WEDNESDAY VIS – BIŠEVO BLUE CAVE - HVAR
We'll start our day with a morning cruise towards Island of
Biševo and its Blue Cave. Originally, the entrance to Blue
Cave was located below sea level, which required visitors
to dive deeply in order to resurface into the cave’s
mysterious blue depths. Sunbeams penetrating through
the cave’s submarine opening get reflected from the white
bottom floor, colouring the cave aquamarine and objects
in the water silver, creating a truly stunning and magical
However, at times high waves prevent the entrance to Blue
Cave, which is something we shall not know before the
morning designated for our visit. For this reason, entrance
fees are paid on the spot – if we 'all lucky enough to visit
After a swim stop and lunch, we'll continue cruising along
many idyllic coves and bays towards Hvar, the sunniest
Croatian island. Hvar is one of the most popular and
attractive Croatian tourist destinations and a meeting point
of the international jet set.

speaking guide will walk you through the town,
introducing you to the island’s way of life, its rich history
and culture. You'll learn how lavender was traditionally

and dine in one of its numerous family owned restaurants

beaches, called Zlatni Rat (Golden Cape). As we stop in
Bol, you can relax in this charming Dalmatian town. Have a
walk, a cup of coffee or a swim, until lunch is served on
After lunch we’ll continue cruising towards Pučišća, with
refreshing swim stops en route and lunch served on board.
Pučišća is the biggest village on the island of Brač.
Nowhere in the system of towns and villages in Dalmatia does terrain play such a compelling role as in Pučišća. Its
spectacular irregularity of steep-sided natural harbour,
authentic Mediterranean architecture and rustic ambience
are simply unforgettable. The fjord-like inlet of Pučišća
meets three narrow valleys that descend from the hills,
joining the bay’s quiet and beautiful waters. Pučišća quarry
was exploited by Romans in the antiquity, after which it
was abandoned until the reopening in 1455. Stone from
Pučišća quarry was used to build limestone columns of the
White House in Washington DC, Vienna Parliament and
many other famous buildings around the world. Pučišća is
also home to the only Croatian Stonemasonry school. Its
students carve sculptures from Brač limestone, applying
traditional and unconventional tools that have been used
here for centuries.
We shall spend a night in this very quiet town. Enjoy the
nightfall, as it unifies the distinct features of Pučišća that
have intrigued us so much in daylight.
Overnight in Pučišća, (B,L)
DAY 7 • FRIDAY – PUČIŠĆA – OMIŠ - SPLIT
After breakfast we'll cruise across the Brač channel to
Omiš, an ancient town with city walls, fortresses and stone
churches. Omiš is located at the delta of Cetina River, with
its wonderful beaches. For centuries, Omiš was for a
stronghold of famous pirates, a symbol of retaliation,
courage and strength in the long historical fight against
The Republic of Venice. After a relaxed walk in Omiš we’ll
have lunch. During the afternoon hours we'll sail on
towards Split, our last stop.
Our English speaking guide will do the afternoon Split City
tour and walk us through the historical Diocletian’s Palace.
The second largest urban centre in Croatia and the seat of
the Split- Dalmatia County, Split boasts 1700 years of
history. Since 1979 the historic centre of Split has been
