Island-hop along the Dalmatian Coast

Join us aboard the Mendula, a beautiful 'private yacht', for a week of island-hopping off Croatia's stunning Dalmatian Coast.

Itinerary

Day One

Fly to Dubrovnik and transfer by coach to the quayside in nearby Zaton where you'll board Mendula.

Day Two

Sail the warm, blue waters of the Adriatic along the shores of the breathtaking Elaphite Islands - past tiny Kolocep, and neighbouring Lopud, former watering hole of Dubrovnik's nobility. Later we'll visit the island of Mljet to stroll the hills of the National Park that surrounds two sparkling salt-water lakes.

Day Three

Hvar is one of the longest islands along the Croatian coast. Take a guided tour on today's excursion.

Day Four

Vibrant Split welcomes us on today's included tour. Wander the Old Town, visit the palace of Roman Emperor Diocletian and browse the colourful marketplaces of Croatia's second city.

Day Five

Spend today relaxing aboard the Mendula, enjoying the sea air and late-summer sun as Mendula sails to Brac, Croatia's third largest island, with its stunning beaches, clear waters and sleepy main town, Supetar.

This evening, enjoy a Captain's Dinner on board.

Day Six

The beautiful island of Korcula, legendary birthplace of Marco Polo, welcomes us today. Step ashore to discover the island's ancient main town, where the narrow streets and restored stone buildings are sure to enchant.

Day Seven

Today Mendula returns to Zaton. Enjoy lunch on board then board our coach for a guided tour of the fascinating, walled city of Dubrovnik. See the Old Town, bustling Luza Square, and the magnificent St Blaise's Church, then explore at your leisure.

Day Eight

After a relaxed morning we'll transfer you back to the airport to check in for your flight home.

Further Information

2016 departures

The itinerary above relates to 2017 departures only. The 2016 itinerary differs very slightly as you'll board Mendula in Dubrovnik itself rather than in Zaton.

Transfer times

The transfer time from the airport to your ship is approximately 40 minutes.

Combining transfers

We sometimes need to combine transfers to and from your ship. We always try to keep any wait to a minimum, but you may be asked to wait at the airport for up to an hour, while other incoming flights arrive, before the transfer to your ship. Similarly, we may need to transfer you back to the airport up to three hours before your flight home departs.

Changes to your itinerary

At the captain's discretion, it may be necessary to alter the order of the itinerary on your holiday.

Cabin facilites

Each cabin is provided with beach towels and complimentary toiletries.

Items not included on board

Drinks from the ship's bar and gratuities are not included in the price of your holiday.

Payments on board

Please note that credit cards cannot be used to make payments on board.

Special requirements

If you have notified us of any special requirements, please check that they have been noted and acknowledged. This is especially important with any dietary needs you may have.

Disabled access

The majority of our tours involve a certain amount of walking, including a short walk from the coach stop to the town, attraction or venue you're visiting. If you are bringing a wheelchair, please let us know at the time of booking so that appropriate arrangements can be made.

Itinerary changes

Occasionally, for operational reasons, we may have to change the order of the excursions on your holiday. The final day-by-day itinerary will be confirmed on your Final Travel Documents, which you will receive approximately three weeks prior to your departure.

Airport development fees

An Airport Development Fee has been introduced at a few UK Airports. You will be required to pay this charge at the following airports prior to checking in for your flight: Blackpool, Durham Tees Valley, Newquay and Norwich. The amount varies from airport to airport, but it is generally between £5 and £10 per person. Please visit the airport's website for further information.

Marden, Kent Couple
The mendula was superb, captain & crew fantastic. Wonderful to eat breakfast & watch the world go by. We enjoyed the mixed nationalities & certainly mealtimes were great fun, with wonderful banter. Standing on the deck arriving at the different ports was a sheer delight. It was a fabulous way to see Croatia & the stunning scenery. The chef did amazingly well & served some delicious meals, especially in view of the tiny galley, in which he worked.

Teddington Couple
Beautiful ship, excellent crew, cute cabin. Pleasant, relaxed with good balance between culture and relaxation.
Flight time out was annoyingly early. Newmarket were not sufficiently prepared with information about the ship, and we would really have liked prior information that we would be spending the first day on our own with no base ( i.e. dropping into Cavtat en route to pass time! ). The tour manager was appropriately apologetic, but we did not have enough warning about what we were doing and wasted a day inappropriately dressed without hats, suntan lotion etc!
We would love to go again. We enjoyed the international mix and number of passengers.

CLARISSA

Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk Couple
MS Mendula is a beautifully designed small sailing ship, designed and owned by the captain, who has great pride in keeping her in pristine condition. The crew were friendly and helpful and Annemarie, our guide, was indefatigable, full of knowledge and faultless.
The food was delicious, with fresh fish central to the menu. Our fellow passengers (26 of them) were friendly and our category 'B' cabin was spacious and very well appointed (better then the cabins on deck we thought). We especially enjoyed swimming off the ship every day - perfect. The towns and villages we visited were all beautiful, especially Korcula. We chose this cruise because there were only thirty passengers.

Boat was immaculate and spacious. We had the lowest grade cabin which was great. Food provided was of a high standard and crew were very friendly. Plenty of swim stops and overnight we visited great places. Croatian islands are beautiful. If you like the Greek islans you'll love this.
