It is a treasure trove of beautiful architecture and art that has been jealously guarded and preserved. Serpent through the narrow alleys, glide across cobbled squares, peruse numerous old churches, libraries and monasteries; let the muse of Dubrovnik charm your mind and inspire your spirit.
Town of Korčula & island of Mljet
A pleasant sail along the islands of Hvar and Brač shores and the Pelješec peninsula will bring you to the beautiful town of Korčula. Korčula is considered to be the birthplace of Marco Polo, and according to the legend, the town was founded by the Trojan hero Antenor. Adorned in smooth white stone on a picturesque point, the sights and sounds of Korčula are truly unique and not to be missed.
The cruise continues to Mljet. Declared a national park, this island is distinguished by its densely wooded environment and two beautiful saltwater lakes, Veliko jezero and Malo jezero. On this excursion, you will take a short boat trip to an island located in the centre of Veliko jezero and pay a visit to the 12th century Benedictine monastery. Some leisure time will give you the opportunity to swim in one of the lakes, take a stroll through Mljet’s lush woods or perhaps a dip in the cove at Pomena.
Island of Vis - Blue and Green Caves adventure
This unique day at sea explores the majestic Green and Blue caves. Cruise the Adriatic between Hvar and the islets of Ravnik and Biševo. Cool off in the emerald waters at the Green Cave and visit its inner core by dinghy. Back on the boat, savour a delightful fish lunch served with domestic wine. After lunch the excursion moves to the world-renowned Blue Cave, whose ethereal silvery-blue colour is created as the sun penetrates into the cave through a hole under the surface. Widely regarded as one of the world’s most beautiful natural phenomena, this cave is a must-see. The trip ends in the picturesque fishing village of Komiža, with a tour of the village and the fishing museum.
