In the morning, we’ll continue our cruise to the Island of Vis, with a swim stop en route. Arrival to Vis is scheduled for the afternoon. Vis is rather unique compared to other Croatian Adriatic islands. Due to its important strategic location on the open sea, it served as a military zone for a long time and was consequently spared of the usual tourist development. Beautiful beaches, ecological agriculture, and preserved traditional architecture make up the advantages of this remarkable Croatian island. You will have afternoon and evening free in Vis, to enjoy its unspoiled nature and dine in one of the family-run restaurants. Overnight in Vis Town, (B, L)

Optional afternoon Vis Island Tour excursion
We start our tour of Vis, our coach will follow the old road, rises above the town and overlooks the bay. We stop on the hill to see fertile fields, the largest freshwater surface on the island, named Lokva, and a former allied airport from WWII. After that, we descend to the fields and drive through vineyards and olive groves, and then we descend us down to Komiža where we’re greeted by a local guide and taken on a tour of beautiful town boasting the longest fishing tradition on East Adriatic. After relaxed time in Komiža, we will go to one local farm to have a traditional dinner and taste owner’s vine and local products. Return to a boat for overnight.

We’ll start our day with a morning cruise towards the Island of Biševo and its Blue Cave. Originally, the entrance to Blue Cave was located below sea level, which required visitors to dive deeply in order to resurface into the cave’s mysterious blue depths. Sunbeams penetrating through the cave’s submarine opening get reflected from the white bottom floor, colouring the cave aquamarine and objects in the water silver, creating a truly stunning and magical natural phenomenon. However, at times high waves prevent the entrance to Blue Cave, which is something we shall not know before the morning designated for our visit. For this reason, entrance fees are paid on the spot – if we ‘all lucky enough to visit the cave! After a swim stop and lunch, we’ll continue cruising along many idyllic coves and bays towards Hvar, the sunniest Croatian island. Hvar is one of the most popular and attractive Croatian tourist destinations and a meeting point of the international jet set.

You’ll learn how lavender was traditionally farmed on Hvar, for many centuries. Afterwards, you’ll be free to enjoy your evening in Hvar, to explore on your own and dine in one of its numerous family-owned restaurants or taverns. Overnight in Hvar Historical Town, (B, L)

We’ll start our day with a morning departure towards Bol. Bol is famous for having one of the finest European beaches, called Zlatni Rat (Golden Cape). As we stop in Bol, you can relax in this charming Dalmatian town. Have a walk, a cup of coffee or a swim, until lunch is served on board. After lunch, we’ll continue cruising towards Pučišća, with refreshing swim stops en route and lunch served on board. Pučišća is the biggest village on the island of Brač. Nowhere in the system of towns and villages in Dalmatia does terrain play such a compelling role as in Pučišća. Its spectacular irregularity of steep-sided natural harbor, authentic Mediterranean architecture and rustic ambience are simply unforgettable. The fjord-like inlet of Pučišća meets three narrow valleys that descend from the hills, joining the bay’s quiet and beautiful waters. Pučišća quarry was exploited by Romans in the antiquity, after which it was abandoned until the reopening in 1455. Stone from Pučišća quarry was used to build limestone columns of the White House in Washington DC, Vienna Parliament and many other famous buildings around the world. Pučišća is also home to the only Croatian Stonemasonry school. Its students carve sculptures from Brač limestone, applying traditional and unconventional tools that have been used here for centuries.

We shall spend a night in this very quiet town. Enjoy the nightfall, as it unifies the distinct features of Pučišća that have intrigued us so much in daylight.
Overnight in Pučišća, (B,L)

After breakfast, we’ll cruise across the Brač channel to Omiš, an ancient town with city walls, fortresses and stone churches.
