CRUISE ITINERARY

Day 1, Saturday: Zadar

From 11:30 am to 1:00 pm, boarding time in the port of Zadar. If you arrive by your own car, you can proceed to the port already from 10:00 am and unload your luggage. Our service team will show you to the parking lot where you can leave your car. After embarkation, our representatives will welcome you aboard with a drink and you will meet the crew and your fellow passengers. (D)

Day 2, Sunday: Zadar – Vodice

After a lunch snack “Cast off!”, heading towards one of the numerous islands, where we will enjoy our first dip into the sea. We will then continue towards Vodice, a bustling holiday resort. You will have the opportunity to enjoy the evening with a glass of wine in one of the cosy taverns or Konobas. For passengers arriving later with flights booked by I.D. Riva Tours, transfer to the harbour of Vodice and embarkation in the evening. (B, L)

Day 3, Monday: Vodice – Krka NP – Šibenik – Rogoznica

A few miles further south, we leave the Adriatic Sea and turn into the embouchure of the River Krka. We go upstream and anchor in Skradin, shortly before the famous Krka waterfalls. From there, smaller boats will take us to the National Park. You will have the opportunity to visit “Skradinski Buk”, the most popular part of the waterfall area, where in 17 falls, with up to 100 m broad cascades, the Krka rushes down 45.7 metres. Make sure you do not forget to bring your bathing suit – a swim in the clear waters of the Krka River just below the falls is a truly unique experience. (Park entrance, including boat ride € 12–15, payable on-site). On our return to the Adriatic Sea, we will stop in Šibenik. Šibenik, mentioned for the first time in 1006, is the youngest of the larger cities on the coast, and at the same time, the oldest Croatian town; as it was not built by Greeks, Romans, or Byzantines, but founded by Croats. The most famous building in the fortress like old town is the St. Jacob’s Cathedral, the most important Renaissance monument in Croatia. After a brief stroll through the old town, we continue to Rogoznica, a pleasant holiday and fishing village, where we will spend the night. The village lies on a small island, connected to the mainland only by a narrow causey. (B, L)
Note: that on very hot days, the visit to Šibenik could be cancelled, and we will enjoy an extended stay at the Krka waterfalls or in Skradin with plenty of time for swimming and sunbathing.

Day 4, Tuesday: Rogoznica – Bol

Today we will head to the picturesque seaside town of Bol, located on the island of Brač. Here you will discover one of the most beautiful beaches in the entire Mediterranean area – “Zlatni Rat” (the Golden Horn), which is constantly changing direction due to the ocean currents. Of course, you will have plenty of time to enjoy swimming and sunbathing at this famous beach, before the vessel will take us to the small port of Bol, where we will spend the night. (B, L)

Day 5, Wednesday: Bol – Split

On our way from Bol towards the mainland, we will stop at one of the numerous secluded bays of the islands of Brač, Šolta or Čiovo for a swim. Afterwards, the vessel will take us to Split, our next port of call. Split is Croatia’s second largest city and the capital of Dalmatia. The 1700 years old city was once the palace of the Roman Emperor Diocletian, and is today a UNESCO-protected site. After a guided city tour, you will have the rest of the day at your disposal to discover the old town on your own and to enjoy the bustling Mediterranean atmosphere on the famous promenade of Split. Overnight stay in the port of Split. (B, L)

Day 6, Thursday: Split – Primošten – Zlarin

After a swim in one of the marvelous bays at the mainland or the island of Drvenik, we will visit Primošten, a picturesque hillside town on a small island, connected to the mainland. In the evening, we will sail back into the island world and moor in the small harbour of the fishing village of Zlarin on the homonymous island. (B, L)

Day 7, Friday: Zlarin – Kornati NP – Zadar Archipelago

According to the Irish author George Bernard Shaw (who received the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1925), ”On the last day of creation, God crowned his work, and thus created, out of tears, stars and breath, the Kornati Islands”. The beautiful scenery, countless small and large islands (according to local lore “an island for every day of the year”), and the beautiful sea – all this makes the Kornati Islands a unique paradise. It is the largest and most dense archipelago in the Adriatic Sea – it comprises 147 islands, islets and reefs with a total area of 69 km2, spread over 230 km2. They cover an area of 35 km of length and 13 km of width among the islands of Dugi Otok in the north-west, Žirje in the southeast, and Pašman, Vrgada and Murter in the north and northeast. We cruise along the entire length of the Kornati Islands and head towards a bay on the northern end for a swim. Overnight stay in one of the ports of the island of Dugi Otok or a neighbouring island. (B, L)

Day 8, Saturday: Zadar Archipelago – Zadar

Before returning to Zadar, we will anchor in one of the numerous bays to take a last refreshing swim in the Adriatic Sea. After arriving in Zadar, a local tour guide will await us to take us on a walk through the impressive old town, surrounded by broad walls. He will show us the main sights and attractions – for example, the Roman Forum, the circular Church of St. Donat, the cathedral of Sveta Stošija (St. Anastasia) and the worldwide unique Sea Organs, which create sounds and melodies made by the waves. We then recommend taking a stroll through the old town on your own, perhaps to have a drink in one of the many cafés or to listen to a “Klapa”, with their enchanting songs. Overnight stay in Zadar.
