Day 1
Dubrovnik

Sunday. Hail Croatia and welcome aboard! The stunning walled city of Dubrovnik is a true treasure. The cobbled old city streets resemble a jumble of tangled shoelaces filled with cute cafes, restaurants, ice cream parlours, souvenirs and curios. The compact city is full of colour and life and many a while can be spent watching the local traders go about their day.

Your boat will be ready for embarkation/check in at the DUBROVNIK (GRUZ) HARBOUR FROM 13:00 ONWARD.
Overnight: Dubrovnik Harbour  |  Dinner

Days 2-3
Korcula

Dubrovnik - Mljet - Korcula. As our boat sets sail, the coming week will be filled with island hopping, swimming, sunbathing and relaxing. Every day you’ll enjoy a freshly prepared breakfast and lunch and visit a range of different ports. As the sun sets, the world is your oyster, explore the day’s port of call at leisure and sample Croatia’s incredible cuisine. We sail to the verdant green island of Mljet, where you can opt for a dip in one of the crystal clear lakes or visit the small 12th century Benedictine monastery. A little over half the island is devoted as National Park offering pleasant scenery and is easily navigated by bicycles available for hire by the harbour front. At dinner time try one of the many seafood restaurants along the waterfront or any one of the tiny local village kavarnas (taverns) throughout the island.

After breakfast on day 3 we set sail for Korcula, the reputed birthplace of the great explorer Marco Polo. It is possible to climb the tower which was said to be his home. It is also one of the most charming and romantic of the 1000 or so islands off the Adriatic coast. You will find architectural delights, including Renaissance palaces, cathedrals, museums and plenty more gems tucked away in its network of old cobbled streets. Enjoy lunch onboard at Lumbarda, on the picturesque eastern cape of the island, before disembarking and spending the remains of the day at leisure exploring this beautiful island.
Overnight: onboard  |  Breakfast x 2, Lunch x 2

Days 4-5
Hvar & Trstenik

Korcula - Hvar - Trstenik. This morning we sail to the little island of Scedro for a dip in the crystal clear waters, before continuing to the sunshine island of Hvar, arriving after lunch. Hvar is the longest island in the Adriatic, renowned for its historic architecture, fresh lavender, rosemary, figs and olives. Take a walk through the harbour town and be sure to sample some of the local wines and spirits, as well as fish caught by Hvar fishermen. Hvar has plenty of excellent restaurants, bars and cafes that are open long into the night.

On day 5 we set sail for the little village of Trstenik on the southern coast of Peljesac island. Chief occupations on the island include farming, viniculture and fishing. The coastline along the town and the neighbouring inlets is covered by lush groves of pine, and is perfect for swimming. The famous Grgic winery is situated here – have a walk and taste some of their delicious wine!

Hi Kelly, Wow what a wonderful week! We're now back in Aust, and thought to drop you a quick e-mail to say our cruise was amazing. Upon arrival we were upgraded to a Premium boat which offered all the trimmings. Our cabin was clean, spacious and far more pleasant than we were expecting. We loved the lazy days lying about on the sundeck and stopping for impromptu swim breaks in beautiful bays were you could see the bottom and little fist swimming about beneath you. We met some lovely people and went out together for cocktails once arriving to port. We've thinking of Turkey this winter. Will be in touch shortly.

Hi Mark,

I just wanted to drop you a quick email with feedback for the sailing trip.

I had an absolutely amazing time and everyone was thrilled to pieces with the standard of accommodation. Realising later that we had received an upgrade to a premium boat was a wonderful surprise too and many thanks for that.

I have no complaints whatsoever and would recommend it in a heartbeat to anyone.

We all had an incredible time and I’d like to thank everyone at On The Go for their time and patience with helping me organise this unforgettable experience. THANK YOU!

Hi Jane,

Just got back from Croatia on Sunday and wanted to say thanks for organising it for me. The trip was great, from the other passengers to the crew and especially the food on board. I would definitely recommend the trip to friends.

I had a great time, I was very proud of myself I actually jumped off the boat, which considering I hate water and swimming was a first for me! I even have a photo to prove it.

Dear On the Go,

I don't usually write letters regarding my previous travels, but this time I couldn't resist.

I really had a great time on the tour! Everything from the beginning till the last day was perfect, every day full of surprises!

I can't find words good enough to describe the Old Town of Dubrovnik. Walking down the marble-paved streets with hundreds of cozy restaurants was incredible. I wish we could have spent a couple more days there.

All the crew on-board were so friendly and helpful, and the chef not only prepared delicious food, but also was the soul of every party!

I met some great people who i hope to stay in touch with and maybe go on another On the Go tour with them!

Thank you!

Stacey McDonald

Great boats, great people, great fun!

Thanks On the Go, I had an awesome holiday!
