AREA MAP

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. 

Our day begins very early with a stop at Plitvice Lake National Park, which offers an awe-inspiring network of 16 lakes – all connected by cascading waterfalls. From there we’ll make our way to Split to board our private yacht – the MS Futura – 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.

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.

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. Tonight we overnight in the port, with an included dinner on board our ship.

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.

Another morning, another beautiful swim stop. Then we enjoy lunch and 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.

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.

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.

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.
