What to expect

We would describe sailing in South Croatia as sailing in paradise. The route starts and ends in Dubrovnik, town that is in top 10 of every important “to visit” list and also on UNESCO’s list of World Heritage Sites. Another town on a route is amazing town of Korčula, town hidden inside the walls and home town of famous explorer Marco Polo. Beside these lively towns, the wind will take us to a peaceful island of Šipan and to two Mediterranean pearls, islands Mljet and Lastovo. Both covered with green forests and beautiful coves. Natural Park on Mljet is just breath taking.

Activity

Our sailing adventures are all full of activities, but it is up to each individual to decide the level of participation, You can really get active with full participation in sailing and other maritime skills, swimming, hiking, snorkeling, suping (Stand up paddling) or You can just relax and enjoy beautiful views from cockpit of the boat with book in one hand and cold drink in another. There will be a chance of nice walks and hikes on Mljet and Lastovo. On Mljet it is also possible to paddle the lakes.

Group size

Max 10 people + Skipper (Sleeps in Saloon)

Sailing boats all have twin and double bad cabins. Depends on how many You are and a comfort You need, You can choose a boat with 2, 3, 4 or even 5 cabins.

Boat

We sail  luxury sailing boats from most renowned brands like Beneteau, Jeanneau, Elan, Hanse, Bavaria, Dufour, Lagoon, Fountaine Pajot. They are all modern, fully equipped sailing boats offering as much comfort as one can get.

Discount

But if you wish differently you can sail an older boat and for that we will reduce the price for You.

1

Saturday

Island Šipan/Elaphiti Islands (15Nm)

After You land in Croatia, we will be at the airport waiting for You and will take You straight to the boat. When You get familiar with Your new home and Your Skipper we will set sail to Elaphiti islands, small archipelago just in front of Dubrovnik. For our first night we will drop anchor in one of the beautiful bays that Elaphiti are so famous for. Crystal clear water, sandy beaches and green islands are just some of the things that will charm You on the first day.

2

Sunday

Pomena, Island Mljet (28Nm)

On the second day the wind will take us through Elaphiti islands towards an amazing island of Mljet. Mljet is another Adriatic green oasis as it is covered with dense Mediteranean forest, salt lakes and much more. We will sail on the South side of island before we reach Pomena, where we will stay for our first day/night. Mljet has National park which can be easily reached from Pomena. A short walk through pine woods will take You to Big and Small lake. On a big lake there is a small island with Benedictine Monastery. On the lake you can paddle or take a boat. It is also worth hiking a nearby hill for stunning views over Mljet coast and National Park with lakes.

3

Monday

Polače, Island Mljet (8Nm)

Next morning we will find a nice bay to swim and then sail towards Polače, small village with beautiful anchorage that is protected by four small islands. In Polače, there are many ancient ruins from 1st to 6th century, but the biggest is Roman palace, whose walls are still “protecting” village. It is also close to National Park so You can visit Park again or hike on the hill if You missed it on a previous day.

4

Tuesday

Skrivena luka, Island Lastovo (26Nm)

Another day, another pearl. Lastovo unfortunately lies far offshore and for that reason we will only stay for one night, although it can offer a lot more. We will sail to Skrivena luka (Hidden bay), a beautiful, hidden, green bay. Water here just calls for some water activity, but beside that a nice walk to one of the oldest lighthouses in the Adriatic is a must. Lighthouse Struga was built in 1839 and stands above the entrance of Skrivena luka as mighty guard. Like on every other day of our adventure, we will stop on our way in one of the beautiful bays for some swimming and other summer joys.

5

Wednesday

Korčula (26 Nm)

After we enjoyed few days in quiet, remote and not so crowded places we will set sails towards Korčula. Korčula is amazing lively town on the island of the same name. The whole town is surrounded by 14th century wall and towers. While walking through Korčula’s narrow street, one can just feel historic importance of this charming town. There are many art and souvenir shops, as well as konobas (really nice local restaurants) offering great local food. Korčula is also supposed to be Marco Polo’s home town (Venice is claiming the same).

6

Thursday

Saplunara, Island Mljet (34Nm)

Saplunara is the most beautiful beach on Mljet. Saplunara got name from Latin word subulum, which means sand. We will enjoy this beautiful sandy beach for water activities and rest before we sail to Metropolitan jewel Dubrovnik.

7

Friday

Dubrovnik(18Nm)

On our way back to Dubrovnik we will once again visit Elaphiti islands for some water activities before we do a sailing tour around Dubrovnik. Once we land our boat in Marina, we will leave for Dubrovnik sightseeing. What to say about a town that is pretty much on every top 10 or even top 5 of every important “to visit” list. Dubrovnik built its reputation and prosperity during 15th and 16th century as capital of Republic of Ragusa. The old town of Dubrovnik is like Korčula hidden behind the wall with many towers. It is really hard to describe the beauty behind the walls, You will just have to explore and see it for Yourself. UNESCO found its beauty and historical importance in 1979 when Dubrovnik joined the list of World Heritage Sites.

*Route can be changed due to safety, weather or other reasons. Because of numerous islands and bays in Croatia, changed route should not be less interesting or beautiful. We can also make slight changes in the route on a daily basis according to your wishes (sleeping in port or outside in a bay on anchor). Skipper is always in charge of the boat and is always acting in best interest and safety of all the crew and the boat.
