You will be transferred from the airport or Zadar hotel to the port for embarkation. Get settled, and later join your fellow “sailors” for a Welcome Reception with dinner.
Day 2 ZADAR – SALI, Sunday (B, L)
Zadar historical center is a compact pedestrian zone, perfect to explore on foot. Set out on a walking tour and admire the old walls built in 16th century by Venetians as a defense from the Turks. You will also see the 16th century Port Gate where the Venetian lion still guards the entrance, the Square of the Five Wells, Church of St. Donat, the Roman Forum (1st century BC) and the largest cathedral in Dalmatia, St. Anastasia. Return to the ship and enjoy your lunch while sailing to Sali. Explore the town tonight, and have dinner on your own in one of the restaurants.
Day 3 SALI – ŠIBENIK, Monday (B, L)
Take in the scenic wonderlands of two National Parks today. Start in Kornati, home to more than 140 islands with numerous coves and crystal clear waters. Stop for a swim during your lunchtime cruise. Next up is Krka, with its magnificent waterfalls. After your visit here, coach to Šibenik where your yacht is anchored. Your evening is at leisure in town.
Day 4 ŠIBENIK – TROGIR – SPLIT, Tuesday (B, L)
Take a break for a swim during your morning cruise. Continue sailing through lunch, arriving this afternoon in the UNESCO-listed city of Trogir. There’s time on your own before heading to Split.

See the remnants of Split’s Roman heritage, its Renaissance and Gothic structures, Jupiter’s Temple, the Peristyle, and the Cathedral.
Day 5 SPLIT – BOL – HVAR, Wednesday (B, L)
Stop in Bol on Brač Island, said to have the best beach in Croatia, the Golden Horn. This vast, golden pebble beach is unique, as it changes shape and position depending on the winds. Go for a swim in the clear blue waters before sailing to the island of Hvar. Enjoy a sightseeing tour including the first public theatre in Europe (older than Shakespeare’s theatre in the UK), the Franciscan Monastery, and many more historic sights. The evening is free to explore Hvar and to dine on your own at one of the excellent restaurants.
Note: Due to the limited capacity of the Hvar harbor (during peak season in July and August) port of call can be substituted for Stari Grad/Jelsa. In that case transfer by bus will be organized to and from Hvar.

After breakfast set sail for Korčula, with an early afternoon arrival. Korčula town is thought to be the birthplace of the famous explorer Marco Polo. Take a walking tour through its narrow, cobbled streets and visit the majestic Gothic-Baroque Cathedral of St. Mark. Continue sailing to the island of Mljet, where you will enjoy the afternoon tour of Mljet National Park, as you walk around the Great and Small Lakes. This lovely island was supposedly a favorite holiday spot for the Greek hero Ulysses! Tonight, enjoy Captain’s dinner with live entertainment on board your ship.
