Join up to 34 women on our annual luxury cruise. Here’s your chance to explore coastlines, parks, medieval towns and the balmy blue waters of the Adriatic Sea from the comfort of our private yacht. You’ll wander the cobblestone streets of Dubrovnik, get top-notch tips from one of the country’s most passionate local guides, and be pampered by a Lesbian Brand Ambassador from the Out Adventures team. Bon voyage!
Bok! Welcome to Dubrovnik, and thank you for joining our signature Croatia cruise. We’ll meet in the lobby of our host hotel at 2PM for a Welcome Meeting. After getting acquainted we’ll head to the old town of Dubrovnik around 4PM for a guided city tour including a 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 the city’s Old Town.
Enjoy a leisurely morning before checking out of the hotel by 11AM. Wander the area near the hotel, and grab lunch on your own. An included transfer will depart the hotel at 1:30PM to take us to the Black Swan – our luxurious private yacht. Onboard we’ll enjoy a safety briefing, then we’ll set sail for Šipan or Slano, both stunning, sleepy fishing villages where we’ll enjoy an included onboard dinner.
We depart bright and early for the island of Mljet with a swim stop en route. We’ll stroll through the famous salt lakes of Mljet National Park, including a boat ride to St Mary Isle where we 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 an incredible barbecue dinner aboard the boat.
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. After learning about the local viticulture, we’ll enjoy an exquisite 3-course dinner featuring five of the property’s best wines. Our boat remains moored in Trstenik tonight.
Today we depart for the birthplace of Marco Polo and one of our favourite towns: Korčula. Enjoy a swim stop and lunch along the way, then upon arrival enjoy an afternoon walking tour with one of our favourite sassy ladies. 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, which just so happens to be owned by a renowned female entrepreneur.
Our cruise features two more decadent swim stops, lunch, and an optional early morning 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, and enjoy dinner on your own in town.
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 our private yacht. We depart from Hvar with a morning swim stop, lunch, and a final swim stop near Bol & Brač. There we’ll drop anchor and ride zodiacs to the shores of Dalmatia’s most famous beach, Zlatni Rat (Golden Horn). To end the day we’ll continue to Split for our final walking tour and Farewell Captain’s Dinner. Optional drinks at a queer-welcoming bar may follow.
Bid farewell to our amazing crew and your fellow travellers before we disembark the ship this morning at 9AM. Thank you for joining us, and as the Croatians say, “Doviđenja!”
