Day 1, Saturday: Trogir – Šešula

Spend time in nearby Trogir, a 13th century open museum town, nicknamed “The Stone Beauty” and stroll along the promenade of the Old Town before we depart at 3pm. Check in is from 1pm at Marina Baotić near Trogir. Enjoy cocktails on your yacht before venturing out and easing into your sailing holiday by arriving into the tranquil bay of Šešula on the picturesque island of Šolta. Paddleboard on the crystal-clear Adriatic Sea, watch the breathtaking sunset, then sample Croatian cuisine in our favourite konoba restaurant, Šišmiš.

Day 2, Sunday: Šešula – Vis

After a hearty breakfast and a morning snorkel, we’ll head to the island of Vis. Rich in mind blowing history and famous for its wine, Vis Town is an explorer’s dream. Wander through historic fort, stroll the hilly landscape, or simply laze on the deck before heading out for cocktails. (B, L)

Day 3, Monday: Vis – Gradina Bay

Anchoring at the beautiful Gradina Bay, our next stop is the perfect base to explore secluded coves, relax and take in the scenery. Sunset reveals a star swept vista, the best you will see in Croatia. This is the perfect spot to cook a meal for your friends onboard, or head to shore to explore the island. (B, L)

Day 4, Tuesday: Gradina Bay – Hvar

Island of Hvar boasts ancient ruins, medieval churches, Spanish Fortress and a fantastic nightlife! If you’re in the mood for a party, you’ll love the idyllic Pakleni Islands’ Palmižana Bay, before jumping into a water taxi to the busy Hvar Town for a night to remember. (B, L)

Day 5, Wednesday: Hvar – Stari Grad

Start the day gently with a morning after breakfast and wake up swim in the turquoise waters before sailing to Stari Grad – one of the oldest towns in Europe. Meander its cobbled pathways, visit 16th century Tvrdalj Castle, a fortified summer residence of the poet Petar Hektorović or go wine tasting in its scenic wineries, and try mouth-watering Dalmatian cuisine. (B, L)

Day 6, Thursday: Stari Grad – Bol

Feel the wind in your hair as we start the day with a friendly yacht race, enroute to Brač and the world famous Zlatni Rat beach, near the town of Bol.

Day 7, Friday: Bol – Trogir

Enjoy a lazy morning topping up your tan and a hearty lunch onboard your yacht before we return to our marina, leaving you with plenty of time for sightseeing after you depart your yacht by 5pm.
