H'var Good Time
Aside from being a clever pun, the name of this trip isn't just a suggestion. It's a dead cert. That is of course unless you're not a fan of sailing, the ocean breeze, immaculate beaches, rugged Dalmatian landscapes and architecture and all the other stuff that goes along with it. Then we can't help you.
Day 1 - Trogir
Trogir has a medieval history, which you'll catch a glimpse of in the walls and architecture. The wow-factor of seeing this massive old town perched on the edge of a ridiculously good-looking stretch of ocean won't be lost on you. It wasn't lost on us, which is why we made this trip.
The adventure begins with a group meeting at 4pm on Day 1 in Trogi
Walk in the steps of renaissance lords and monks as you wind past grand buildings, such as the Cathedral of St Lovro, the 15th-century town hall, the Cipiko Palace and the Kamerlengo Fortress
Day 2 - Split/Hvar
Roman emperor Diocletian chose Split for his palace of pleasures. We're not entirely sure what these pleasures consisted of, but they sound awesome. And so is Split. FYI there's no such thing as the wrong time to eat a burek here. Feel free to get one on the hour every hour. Grab a plate of calamari and a thin crust pizza in the Hvar piazza and toast your awesome life.
Cast off and say goodbye to Rogoznica as you sail eastwards through the sheltered Kastela Gulf, passing the town of Kastela with its grand fortified castles to the north, and Ciovo Island to the south
Approach the palm-lined harbour of Split from its best side - framed by towering coastal mountains and the blue of the Adriatic
Explore the impressive ruins of Diocletian's Palace in Split
Sail from city to island and head for Hvar island in the afternoon (approx 5hrs sailing time)
Settle in for an afternoon of beach-hopping, enjoying seafood and kicking back with cocktails on the waterfront
Wander around towns with preserved Renaissance facades, hike past jagged limestone cliffs and slow your pace to enjoy the farms, ancient olive groves and fields of rosemary and lavender
Perhaps cross the Island by Car and visit Hvar Town - the so called San Trope of CroatiaBreakfast | Lunch
Day 3 - Brac
Welcome to one of the biggest islands of central Dalmatia. If you're the type that likes beaches, cheese and homemade wine, you're in for a treat.
Cruise along the coast of Brac
Weigh anchor and go for a paddle in the sea, or snorkel and spot sea anemones, crabs, sea urchins and small fish in the pristine waters
Weather permitting, anchor for the Night in Bol or a nearby CoveBreakfast | Lunch
Day 4 - Blace
Pebble beaches, black pine groves, rocky cliffs, mountains, a river and more. Pure Blace.
Navigate the narrow sea channel and sail out again to the Adriatic for a blissful full day of sailing (approx. 5hrs)
Moor in the mainland for the night
Dock right next to a family run restaurant where you'll dine tonight
Perhaps go for a stunning hike up to an outlook with a 180 degree viewBreakfast | Lunch
Day 5 - Korcula
Ah Korcula, you handsome devil. Many times we have visited only to part ways again. Many times you have broken our hearts with your rugged good looks, your happy-go-lucky attitude, and your abundance of...um...cats (they were introduced in the Middle Ages to stop rats spreading disease).
Sweep in past the round, defensive towers of Korcula Town via the Peljeski Channel
Once arrived in Korcula, explore the old town and unwind on the beachesBreakfast | Lunch
Day 6 - Mljet
Whilst Odysseus had seven years In Mljet, you have one day. Better have a list of things-to-do before you pull up, champ.
Sail south-east across the jewel sea and be seduced by Mljet (approx 6 hrs)
Pergaos explore karst valleys and catch your reflection in the lake lakes if you choose to take a guided tour through the national park
Wander beneath cool pine forests, through chasms and gorges, and discover ruins such as the remains of an Illyrian fortification, a Roman palace and a 5th-century churchBreakfast | Lunch
Day 7-8 - Ston/Slano/Dubrovnik
It's got big walls, it's got amazing coastline, it's surrounded by azure-blue waters, what's not to like about Dubrovnik? That's right, nothing. Absolutely nothing.
Depart Mljet and head to Ston, a town tucked up on the isthmus that joins the mainland and the Peljesac Peninsula (3hrs)
Wander the narrow streets, built to confuse invaders, and explore the medieval town centre
Depending on the weather conditions you may spend the Night in Ston or continue for another hour to Slano and dock for the night
Your journey on the waves ends at approximately 10am, after a last breakfast aboard the yacht the following morning
We'll arrange a taxi from your mooring point in Slano to Dubrovnik town (at additional cost). NB. The Itinerary above may be subject to change depending on weather or berth availability. Your Skipper will make the final call to ensure your safety at all times.Breakfast | Lunch
