Sailing Paradise

The typical day's sailing includes morning departure from the previous night's port of call (you'll probably sleep through it anyhow!), breakfast on board, a picturesque cruise along the coast, a late morning swimming stop - think diving into crystal turquoise water, lazing on a lilo & sharing stories from the night before - a relaxing hour or two reclined on the deck chairs soaking up the rays, lunch on board, followed by docking at the next port of call.

After we've docked it's time to explore the island, visit the beaches, wander the local streets & markets and take in the local culture before returning to the boat to relax, freshen up, enjoy a drink or cocktail together at the on-board bar before we head out for another amazing sunset and night on the town.

It's quite simply one of the most magical experiences you'll enjoy on your European adventures!


Your package price includes breakfast & lunch on board your boat together with our tour leader and fellow travellers each day. Breakfast is a healthy continental style serving including cereal, fresh bread & spreads, fruit, coffee/tea and fruit juice. Lunches are a real highlight of the trip and receive rave reviews from all our passengers with a hearty three course meal served every day on board your boat.

On our Mljet and Dubrovnik days our included meal is dinner allowing us more time to explore Mljet national park and Dubrovnik’s historic old town during the day.

No Hidden Charges or Extra Surcharges

Fanatics package price includes all hire fees and fuel surcharges. The only additional cost you need to pay is the local tourist tax €35 cash to be paid on boarding (once only fee).

Breakfast & lunch (or dinner) is included daily. Dinner is enjoyed each night on the islands - the value & range is incredible and no matter what your budget there are options aplenty (eg. a pizza or pasta will cost around €7-10), seafood is also incredibly cheap and if you really want to treat yourself to some fine dining you'll easily find fantastic restaurant mains for between €12-€25.


Saturday 8 July - Pamplona to Croatia & Ultra Europe Music Festival!

Following today's bull run our coach transfer departs Pamplona camspite to Bilbao airport (details on the coach departure will be emailed to you three weeks before the tour) ready for our flight to Croatia.

We then board our boat where a compulsory €25pp tourist tax is payable in cash (note that fuel surcharges & port taxes are already included & paid in your Fanatics package price). This afternoon you can join an optional guided city tour of Split's incredible World Heritage listed old town centre containing an abundance of Roman architecture including the Diocletian palace.

Tonight is the incredible Ultra Europe Music Festival's biggest and best line-up - a sensational night to kick off our Croatia Sailing week! Of course Split has plenty of options for anyone without Ultra tickets and our tour leaders will be heading for the pick of the local bars this evening with passengers not attending the festival.

Sunday 9 July: Split to Makarska

This morning we sail south along the Dalmatian coast to the town of Makarska where we spend the afternoon swimming and lazing about on one of the many beautiful beaches on the Croatian Riviera. Makarska is one of the most attractive resorts on the Croatian coast. Those feeling adventurous can join a white water rafting excursion on the Cetina River. We spend the evening in the port of Makarska where you can grab some dinner, stroll along the historic streets and enjoy our opening night party at Makarska’s famous cave bar!

Monday 10 July: Makarska to Mljet

This morning we depart Makarska for Mljet, first stopping on the Peljesac peninsula for a refreshing swim. Today we have an optional bike & bbq tour in Mljet National Park (HRK 400 including park entry, bicycle hire & bbq lunch with drinks). The tour cycles along the salt lakes of Mljet National Park, otherwise you can simply enjoy the sun and sea on this peaceful island. In the middle of the largest lake you can visit the picturesque abbey and church.

Tonight we sail on to our private bay where today's included meal is dinner on board before we party the night away with our fellow passengers!

Tuesday 11 July: Mljet to Dubrovnik

After breakfast we depart for Dubrovnik - one of the highlights of any Croatian cruise. As always along the way we'll be stopping for a swim in the magical waters of the Adriatic. Upon arrival in Dubrovnik the afternoon is free for you to explore the glorious old town & experience its amazing vistas with the group or you can join an optional guided tour of Dubrovnik. Today’s included meal is an evening dinner on board our boat giving you maximum time to explore Dubrovnik during the day, there are plenty of good value lunch options nearby that your tour leader will point out.

In the Middle Ages Dubrovnik was the only city-state to rival Venice and the riches of that era are still in evidence today. Discover the beauty of this Mediterranean gem through its numerous monuments, tiny streets and churches, take a walk through Stradun – the old city’s main street, relax in one of the many café-bars or those of you with plenty of energy might want to walk along the 1,940m-long city walls! This is one destination you definitely will never forget.

This afternoon you might want to join an optional activity such as the Game of Thrones tour or a kayaking trip taking in the old city walls from the water. After a full day of sightseeing we head back to the boat for dinner and some on-board cocktails before hitting the nightlife of Dubrovnik's old town centre.

Wednesday 12 July: Dubrovnik to Korcula

This morning we depart Dubrovnik and continue our cruise to the gorgeous island town of Korcula, the birthplace of Marco Polo. Korcula is one of Croatia's most historically significant towns & as well as its architectural splendour it also boasts one of Europe's most stunning sunsets which we'll be enjoying together with cocktails in hand! On this island you can find more legends, tales and monuments to the region’s past than anywhere else along the Dalmatian coast.

Thursday 13 July: Korcula to Hvar

This morning we depart for the Pakleni Islands for lunch and another amazing swimming stop before heading to the island of Hvar. Hvar is the longest island in the Adriatic. Here you can find medieval monuments such as the Renaissance cathedral with its original tower and the oldest community theatre in Europe – founded here in 1612. The city of Hvar offers plenty of entertainment with restaurants, bars and cafes that are open long into the night!

Friday 14 July: Hvar to Bol

Today we make our way to the island of Brac and the magical beach town of Bol. Situated on a secluded peninsula, Bol is the oldest town of Brac and one of the most famous seaside resorts of the Adriatic, pictures of which adorn every Croatian advertisement!

Saturday 15 July: Bol to Split

We arrive back into Split after breakfast where our tour ends and it’s time to say goodbye to the crew and fellow passengers.
