So we've all been cooped up in our homes, playing our part in helping to minimize the spread of COVID-19, but summer is half over for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere and you want to make the most of it! Croatia remains one of the countries that have reopened to tourists from a number of countries (including the USA) and is a sunny place to spend some time cruising this summer, far from the crowds, enjoying a well-deserved break.
Come and discover the pristine beaches and many islands dotted across the Adriatic Sea when you charter a yacht through Croatia. Revel in medieval walled towns, or take a deep dive in crystal clear blue waters while watching the other yachts bob in the water.
Spend the morning exploring the seaside town of Split, famous for the palace of Roman Emperor Deocletian. Walk among ancient ruins before heading to the marina to meet your yacht and crew. After a tour led by the Captain, lunch is served alfresco with delicious fresh seafood and crisp white wine served up by your private chef.
Everything is within a short cruise of each other so today you'll wake up in Bisevo, famed for its Blue Grotto only accessible by sea. After spending the afternoon playing in the water, it's a short cruise to Via for the evening - head into this fishing town to soak up some local culture before dining onboard tonight.
Welcome to the Pakleni Islands, which offer some of the most fantastic bays in the Adriatic. It's another short cruise to the famous Brac beach where you'll anchor for the evening. Take a dinghy into the beach when the crowds have gone for an evening swim before a formal dinner onboard.
It's time to stretch your legs in town today! Welcome to Hvar - voted one of the prettiest towns on the Croatian coast, it's easy to see why with its medieval walls, ancient church and plenty of little cobblestone alleyways to get lost in. You'll want to dine in town tonight and for those looking to hit the local bars and clubs - you'll find no shortage here!
Continue heading south to Scedro for another morning spent in the refreshing sea. Enjoy fresh caught seafood for lunch on the aftdeck as you take another short cruise to Korcula for an evening in Marco Polo's home town.
Nearby is the lovely island of Mijet which is now a national park. This anchorage is perfect for taking some of the toys out, splashing in the sea, or catching up on some reading on the bow. Bask in the sunshine, cold drink in hand, taking in the unspoilt views that surround you.
After such a tranquil day yesterday, today you'll head into the bustling town of Dubrovnik - make time to walk the streets of this city, dine in a local cafe and enjoy your time in the pearl of the Adriatic.
Breakfast will be served alfresco one last time so you can take in all of the views on your final cruise back up to Split for the flight home. We hope you've enjoyed your time cruising around these stunning islands!
