Anchors aweigh! Join up to 34 women on our annual Croatian summer cruise, led by one of the country’s most experienced female guides. Here’s your chance to explore coastlines, parks, medieval towns and the balmy blue waters of the Adriatic Sea from the comfort of a female-owned and operated private yacht. You’ll also visit businesses owned and run by women, get top-notch tips from a passionate local guide, and be pampered by a Lesbian Brand Ambassador from the Out Adventures team.
Bok! Welcome to Croatia. You can meet the Brand Ambassador at the host hotel for an included transfer at noon, or make your own way to the yacht. Boarding is between noon and 2PM. Onboard we’ll enjoy an included lunch and safety briefing, then head to town for a walking tour and cable ride up Srđ Mountain. Soak up the scenic views of the Old City Walls and Elaphiti Islands, then enjoy some free time before a fabulous Welcome Dinner in the heart of Dubrovnik.
Today we depart early, enjoy our first morning swim stop in a secluded bay, then cruise to the island of Mljet. There we’ll stroll through the famous salt lakes of Mljet National Park. This visit includes a boat ride to St Mary Isle, where we’ll visit an ancient monastery, an old abbey, and a church that dates back to the 12th century. If you’d like to get your blood flowing you can also rent a kayak, bike or scooter to roam on your own. Tonight we’ll enjoy a Barbecue Dinner aboard the boat in either Polača or Pomena.
Another morning, another beautiful swim stop. Then lunch…and another swim stop. Eventually we arrive in Trstenik on the Pelješac peninsula, and head to a modern winery. A private tour of the grounds and cellar await, then an exquisite 3-course dinner featuring five of the property’s finest wines. Our boat remains moored in Trstenik tonight.
Today we depart for the birthplace of Marco Polo and one of our favourite stops: Korcula. Enjoy a swim stop and lunch along the way, then upon arrival enjoy an afternoon walking tour with one of our favourite sassy female guides. It’s only a short walk to the old town so we encourage you to explore the area and its charming shops, bars and restaurants. This evening features an optional dinner at one of the most famous restaurants in town, and it’s owned by a renowned female entrepreneur in the city.
Today features two more decadent swim stops, lunch, and a potential visit to the Blue Caves weather permitting. Late this afternoon we arrive at the charming town of Vis, known for its former Yugoslav Naval base. Wander the main street for handicrafts and locally-produced fashion, then join us aboard the boat for dinner.
If we didn’t make it to the Blue Caves yesterday, we’ll try again this morning. Otherwise we’ll head for jet-set Hvar: the island of mega yachts, fine dining, and celebrity sightings. Orient yourself with our guided walking tour, then feel free to explore. We highly recommend the short hike to Tvrdava Fortica for one of the best views of your life. Tonight is free, or you can join an optional dinner at one of our favourite gourmet restaurants.
Today marks our last full day aboard the yacht. We depart from Hvar with a morning swim stop, lunch, and a final swim stop near Bol & Brač. There we’ll drop anchor, then ride zodiacs to the shores of Dalmatia’s most famous beach: Zlatni Rat (Golden Horn). Finally we’ll continue to Split for our final walking tour, Captain’s Dinner, and optional drinks at a Queer-welcoming Bar.
Bid farewell to our amazing crew before you disembark the ship this morning. We’ll then head to Licko Petrovo Selo, where we’ll meet the female leader of this Serbian community to learn about their history and culture. We’ll then visit Željava Air Base on the Bosnian border. Snap a few photos with an abandoned war plane before we head to Zagreb for one final night. After we check in to our centrally located hotel we’ll head out for a walking and a gorgeous Farewell Dinner.
There are no activities planned today, and check out is at 11AM.
