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. Carrying a maximum of just 31 passengers, the Mendula is small enough to slip into picturesque harbours and idyllic 'hidden coves', and is the perfect 'home-from-home' from which to visit the ancient cities of Dubrovnik and Split.
Fly to Dubrovnik and transfer by coach to the quayside in nearby Zaton, where you'll board Mendula.
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.
This morning's first call is picturesque Scedro, before Mendula sails on to nearby Hvar, one of the longest islands along the Croatian coast. Take a guided tour on today's excursion.
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.
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.
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.
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.
After a relaxed morning we'll transfer you back to the airport to check in for your flight home.
