Visit some of the most scenic, intriguing, and historically significant sites in the region, from natural wonders such as the Pakleni Islands to ancient monasteries at Solta and quaint towns such as the lovely Vis. With warm weather, crystalline blue waters, exciting outdoor adventures, historic sites, and ancient ruins, this adventure has a wonderful mix of culture and nature. The summer sailing season in the Adriatic Sea is an exciting time and there’s never a more spectacular opportunity to sail and explore the islands of Croatia.

DAY 1:

Meet the yacht in Yacht Club Seget in Trogir, a beautiful medieval town on the central Adriatic coast of Croatia. Departing when ready, you will set sail for the small island of Drvenik Veli, the closest nearby Croatian island, known for its sandy beaches and a breathtaking clear blue lagoon. You will spend the night in these picturesque surroundings at anchor.

DAY 2:

Today you will sail to the farthest inhabited island from the coast, Vis. With its incredible turquoise waters and exciting history, you can explore the town of Komizo on the western coast, with a guided tour of local sites and attractions. Dinner here will be ashore at one of the fantastic local restaurants. This mysterious island is captivating in its peace and authenticity, and you are sure to get an excellent night’s sleep in this quaint and peaceful harbour.

DAY 3:

You will visit the spectacular Blue Cave on the island of Biševo today, just offshore from Vis. After exploring this incredible place, you will sail to the town of Vis itself to attend an exclusive wine tasting. You will have dinner ashore here, enjoying a meal of peka, the regionally famous Croatian dish, followed by night spent at anchor in the town harbour or nearby.

DAY 4: Hell’s Islands

Sailing to Hvar today, you will visit the unusual Pakleni Islands (Hell’s Islands) to swim and snorkel in the crystal clear waters of the hidden beaches and deserted lagoons. Anchoring in a quiet bay near these wooded isles in front of Hvar, you have the option of catching a taxi boat transfer to shore to explore the area, returning to the boat for dinner onboard.

DAY 5:

After some fun sailing in the day, you will visit another town on Hvar; the town of Stari Grad. As one of the oldest towns in Europe, this town has a lot to offer in the way of history. A relaxed and quiet town, you can relax and explore the stone streets here as you soak up the local atmosphere. Dinner will be at a small local restaurant here, with the option to visit a wine cellar later.

DAY 6:

Today you will sail to the island of Solta, where you will anchor in a quiet bay. If there is time, you can take part in a walking tour of the ancient monastery at Blaca, carved into the cliff. Before dinner at a restaurant in town, explore the lovely wooded island.

DAY 7:

Enjoy your last day of sailing and swimming today before arriving back to the base at Trogir in the late afternoon. Take part in a guided tour of the city’s historical sites before you leave, and make sure you stay longer if you want to soak up the sights of this tiny island, linked by bridges to both the mainland and on to the far larger Čiovo Island.
