Island-hop the Dalmatian Coast

Enjoy a glorious week of blue waters, hidden coves and delightful ports, all discovered from the comfort of a 'private yacht'.

Join us aboard Mendula, a beautiful, air-conditioned 'private yacht', for a week of relaxed island-hopping as you cruise the warm, blue waters of the Adriatic Sea off Croatia's stunning Dalmatian Coast. Carrying a maximum of just 31 passengers, and just 36 metres in length, Mendula is small enough to slip into some of Croatia’s most picturesque harbours and hidden coves for the chance to swim and snorkel, and is the perfect 'home-from-home' in which to visit the ancient cities of Dubrovnik and Split – as well as some idyllic offshore isles.

What does this price include?

  • Seven nights' accommodation on board Mendula in a lower-deck cabin (upgrade cabins available)
  • Breakfast each day, five lunches and two evening meals, including a Captain's Dinner
  • Return flights to Dubrovnik
  • Return airport-to-ship transfers

Your Itinerary

  • 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, for the chance to explore the National Park with its two sparkling salt-water lakes.

    The cruise, a perfect choice for anyone who has dreamed of taking a holiday on a yacht, includes five tasty lunches and two evening meals, including a Captain’s Dinner, prepared on board. On other occasions you can step ashore to try local restaurants, and, each evening, there’s the option to enjoy a nightcap at the ship’s relaxed top-deck bar.

  • This morning's first call is picturesque Scedro, before Mendula sails on to nearby Hvar, one of the most idyllic of the Croatian islands. After lunch on board, enjoy the included guided tour of Hvar Town, where the Venetian arsenal, tiny harbour and Cathedral are among the highlights, and this evening, soak up the atmosphere of what is now one of the Adriatic’s trendiest spots.

  • After a chance for a morning swim, Mendula arrives in Split. After the included walking 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 Mendula, enjoying the sea air and hoped-for sunshine as she 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, birthplace - legend has it - of Marco Polo, welcomes you today. Step ashore, after lunch on board, to discover the narrow streets and crumbling fortifications of the island's ancient main town on an included walking tour. This evening, enjoy dinner ashore at your leisure.

  • 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. Other highlights will include the Franciscan Monastery that houses Europe's oldest pharmacy, and the Rector's Palace (entrances payable locally). Stroll around the walls, choose a restaurant or cafe for dinner, then return to Zaton for your final night on board.

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

Further Information

  • The transfer time from the airport to the quayside to board MS Mendula is approximately 45 minutes.

  • 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.
  • Please note that the single cabin on the Mendula (which is located on the Main Deck) is roughly three metres by two metres, and is much smaller in size than the twin cabins. As you would expect with a cabin of this size, space is very restricted.
  • At the captain's discretion, it may be necessary to alter the order of the itinerary on your holiday.
  • Each cabin is provided with beach towels and complimentary toiletries.
  • Drinks from the ship's bar and gratuities are not included in the price of your holiday.
  • Please note that credit cards cannot be used to make payments on board.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
