Further trip information

Day 1: Arrive in Split. Welcome to Croatia! Jump on the airport shuttle to our centrally located hostel where you can either chill, or head out to get your first taste of the historic city. This evening, meet the rest of the group over dinner and drinks.

Day 2: Split & Makarska. Take a walking tour of Split, ahead of boarding our premium boat. Tuck into a three-course lunch before stopping at a fabulous swimming spot. As we cruise into Makarska’s beautiful bay, you’ll have to pinch yourself to check you’re not dreaming. Grab a beer and a pizza and kick back in one of the town’s open-air cafés.

Day 3: Mljet National Park. Sail to the lushly forested island of Mljet where we’ll anchor up in a hidden bay to swim, before a delicious three-course lunch of locally sourced food. This afternoon, explore Mljet by bike, then spend the evening under the stars on board.

Day 4: Dubrovnik. Today’s destination is Game of Thrones megastar, Dubrovnik. Get to know the atmospheric Old Town with a walking tour, before a kayaking session. Wash the salt from your hair back on board, then head into the city, for drinks, dinner and top-drawer clubs.

Day 5: Trstenik. Drift past silvery olive groves and lush vineyards before we find the bluest-of-blue spots to swim. Later, we’ll drop anchor in the sleepy fishing village of Trstenik. Explore the gorgeous beaches and soak up the real Croatia, before dressing up tonight for a Captains Dinner on board.  

Day 6: Korcula. Spend another morning cruising through turquoise waters before docking in the Venetian town of Korcula. See some of the highlights of ‘Little Dubrovnik’ on a walking tour, before exploring at your own pace. Just make sure you’re on the waterfront in time for sundowners.

Day 7: Hvar. We’re sailing to Croatia’s most luxurious island today. Check out the Spanish Fortress, before heading to one of Hvar’s iconic beach clubs where we’ll chill with a cocktail as the sun sets and the DJ turns up the beats. Hvar’s nightlife is legendary, so be prepared to go large tonight!

Day 8: Split (via Bol). On our way to Split we’ll stop off at Croatia’s most famous beach – Zlatni Rat, Bol. Take in the unique coastline and splash around in the crystal-clear water, before continuing to Split. Spend the afternoon souvenir shopping, sightseeing or bronzing your bod on the beach.

Day 9: Krka National Park & waterfalls. Head to Krka National Park to check out its epic series of waterfalls. Cool off in the emerald-coloured pools and take some enviable pics for the ‘gram. We will grab lunch in the beautiful old town of Skradin before heading back to Split for one last evening together over a mouth-watering dinner and drinks – živjeli! 

Day 10: Split & trip end. It’s time to make our way back to the airport. You’ll be heading home with a cracking tan, some incredible memories, and a gang of new friends though! See you soon.
