ITINERARY

Day 1 Zagreb

Bok! Welcome to Croatia! Check-in to our centrally located 4-star hotel, then meet your fellow adventurers at 2PM, before we take a guided tour of Zagreb. This evening we’ll break bread at an included welcome dinner within walking distance from the hotel.

Please note: This is our July 3-11th, 2020 tour itinerary. To see our July 11-19th, 2020 itinerary, click here.

Day 2 Zagreb/Split

Our day begins with a private transfer to Split. En route we’ll enjoy a special lunch serving traditional Croatian fare. From there we’ll make our way to Split to board our luxurious yacht – the Black Swan – then enjoy dinner onboard followed by a night-tour of the old city including Diocletian’s Palace. We’ll conclude with optional drinks at a nearby gay-welcoming bar.

Day 3 Split/Bol/Hvar

After breakfast, we depart Split for Hvar. En route we’ll stop at Brač for a swim at one of the most famous beaches in Dalmatia – Zlatni Rat (Golden Horn beach). On arrival at Hvar we’ll head out for a guided tour followed by a free evening to explore. An optional dinner will be available.

Day 4 Hvar/Biševo/Vis

An early departure brings us to the quaint island of Biševo, where the Blue Caves awaits providing the weather is in our favour. We then continue to the island of Vis, an isolated former Yugoslav naval base that captures the Mediterranean “as it once was”. Here, you can either pay to visit the remains of the Roman thermal baths, hit up the city museum or simply take in the free views of the beautiful Rustic Vill on the waterfront. We overnight in the port, with an included BBQ dinner on board our ship.

Day 5 Vis/Korčula

This morning we depart for Korčula – the birthplace of Marco Polo – and a favourite stop amongst Out Adventurers. We’ll have a swim stop and lunch along the way, and upon arrival we’ll enjoy a late afternoon walking tour. Since it’s only a short walk to the yacht from anywhere in the old town, we encourage you to explore the area and its charming shops, bars and restaurants.

Day 6 Korčula/Trstenik

Another morning, another beautiful swim stop. Then we enjoy lunch and yet another swim stop before arriving in Trstenik on the Pelješac peninsula. Here, we’ll head to a modern local winery that includes a tour of the grounds and cellar, followed by a luscious 3-course dinner paired with five pristine Croatian wines. Tonight we overnight in this quaint and charming town.

Day 7 Trstenik/Mljet

Today we depart early, cruising to the island of Mljet after we have a morning swim stop. Once in Mljet, we’ll join our local guide for a stroll through the famous salt lakes of Mljet National Park. This visit includes a boat ride to St Mary Isle to visit an ancient monastery, an old abbey, and a church that dates back to the 12th century. If you’d like to get the blood flowing, you can also rent a kayak, bike or scooter to roam the park on your own. We’ll enjoy our Captain’s Dinner aboard the boat in either Polača or Pomena.

Day 8 Mljet/Dubrovnik

This morning we depart early for the world-famous Dubrovnik, cruising past the old city walls while enjoying lunch onboard. We’ll dock in the new port given the large size of our vessel, then transfer into town for a guided walking tour. This will be followed by a cable car ride up Srđ Mountain where we’ll soak up the scenic views of the Old City Walls and Elaphiti Islands. You’ll have some free time in town to wander, then we’ll meet at a central location for our gourmet Farewell Dinner at a fabulous rooftop restaurant.

Day 9 Dubrovnik/Departure

This morning we bid farewell to our faithful yacht crew, and each other, as our adventure comes to an end. There are no activities planned, and we must disembark by 9AM. There will be a luggage storage option available for those with afternoon or evening flights, and we have a host hotel for those wishing to spend more time in this ancient city.

Traveling by sea is most definitely the way to see Croatia. And I look forward to my next trip with Out Adventures.

Croatia: Gay Dalmatia Cruise 2020
Rating:

This was my first time traveling as part of an organized, large group and it exceeded my expectations. Croatia is an incredibly beautiful country, especially once you reach the Adriatic (Dalmatian) Coast. Arid mountains, clear azure waters, big sky, sheltered coves and historic towns and villages. The landscape, the architecture, the history and the people, all wonderful. The pure joy of that experience, including the endless laughter shared among old friends and new, I will cherish forever. Kudos to Rob, Out Adventures and our Croatian expert guide Livio. They were truly committed to ensuring that each and every person had the very best experience possible. Traveling by sea is most definitely the way to see Croatia. And I look forward to my next trip with Out Adventures.

What a great way to see you Croatia, meet new friends and all done with style & class!! It was one of my most memorable vacations ever. My favorite part of the trip; waking up each morning to an up front and close view of the Croatian coast line. The small towns/ villages, the mountains and the crystal clear Adriatic were simply amazing; every morning was more spectacular than the last. The city tours in the afternoons were always well organized and full of local history facts. A very big thanks to Out Adventures for organizing this truly awesome trip!! Great memories and met some really awesome guys. I can’t wait for my next Out Adventure!!

My favorite meals were peppered with fresh herbs and Istrian truffles. Each new port city I visited had its own unique energy, and walking the narrow streets of these cities was both haunting and fascinating.

Croatia is a beautiful and vibrant country that has stoically overcome war and adapted quite well to a massive influx of tourists. The food was amazing. Every meal used fresh produce that was locally sourced and organic. My favorite meals were peppered with fresh herbs and Istrian truffles. Each new port city I visited had its own unique energy, and walking the narrow streets of these cities was both haunting and fascinating. I really enjoyed my free time swimming off the yacht, taking in the beauty of the Croatian coastline, and tasting the local cuisine. However, what made this trip even more memorable was all of the new friendships I made along the way.
