If you're anyone who has watched an episode of "Below Deck," you may at one time had what the kids are calling FOMO (fear of missing out).  Well FOMO no more - now you can sail the Med in style this September - a month particularly perfect for Croatia because the sea will have finally warmed.  

Wake up to a gorgeous daily breakfast, play in the ocean until lunch while you set sail to a gorgeous port where you can walk around, eat, shop, play.  Its all up to you!


Exploring a mediterranean

Day 1 - Optional Pre-Stay In Sibenik - We encourage everyone to arrive one day early to stay in a port hotel walking distance to the ship.  Our team will provide affordable options to all guests.

Day 2 - Sibenik - Depart 12:00 PM - As we cross through the channel of St. Ante, guarded by St. Nicholas fortress (unique and breathtaking), we bow our heads as we enter the city of Croatian kings of old, and later, a valued Venetian city, protected by not one or two, but a total of four major fortresses, which stand as a testament to its importance in history. The cathedral of St. Jacob dominates the old town, a building with no peers, the unique architecture of which continues to inspire even to this day.

Day 3 - Vis -  we make our way to Vis, an island with and interesting ancient, but truly fascinating recent history of a military run island. From WW2 until the nineties, Vis was closed off to most people and therefore retains a style of life and architecture which remains specific to itself, and makes it a unique place to experience.

Day 4 - Korcula - After a short sail, followed by a generous swim stop, we arrive at the birth place of Marco Polo, the famous medieval explorer, whose life journey began on these ancient cobbled streets. Get lost in the any alleys and local businesses, as you learn about the wine and oil that made Korčula so rich in the past. As the sun sets over the western part of the town, enjoy the breeze, which is given to you by the town’s specific architecture.

Day 5 -.Dubrovnik - Explore the Old Town, one of the biggest and best preserved living monuments in the world. Enjoy the history, culture, high end cuisine and the booming night life. We spend the night in port of Gruž.

Day 6 - Mljet - We make our way to Pomena on the island of Mljet, one of the oldest National parks in Croatia. The two beautiful salt lakes, the main part of the NP, are set like two blue jewels into the miles and miles of deep green pine forest that surround them. Walk with the butterflies, and swim in the crystal clear waters of the park, and retire to a quiet evening beneath the centuries old pines of the island.

Day 7 -  Hvar - Leave behind the serene atmosphere of the south, as we near the party capital of Croatia. As soon as your feet touch the white marble port of Hvar, you are taken away on a journey of history, cuisine and party-culture, which, as the night goes on, will take you further and further down the rabbit hole of street pubs, bars and island nightclubs, in a place which is unlike any other in Croatia. For a calmer traveler, plenty of quiet nooks can be found, where you can enjoy the sights in peace, before the nighttime craziness.

Day 8 - Split - As we enjoy our last morning swim stop, we ponder our last destination. Split, a town the grew out of an imperial Roman palace over a period of 1700+ years, and offers these layers of history and architecture on the palm of your hand, waiting for you to grasp it. Explore the Diocletian’s palace, hike the Marjan Park Forest, have a long coffee with the locals, and enjoy the fish from the oldest fish market in Croatia.

Day 9 - Depart for home after breakfast.
