From Dubrovnik - Croatia's stunning walled city, island hop the spectacular Dalmatian coast - taking in beautiful beaches, islands of pine & medieval towns & fortresses. Sightsee, swim, snorkel or simply relax onboard!
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 (D)
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 (B:2, L:2)

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.

What's onboard a Classic boat?
Travelling on a sometimes masted, rigged wooden sailing boat (with onboard motor power) with a range of facilities including dining area and plenty of deck space to enjoy the spectacular views and sea breeze, you'll be in the company of like-minded travellers. Relax as you let the captain and his support crew look after your needs. An onboard cook prepares breakfast and lunch or dinner each day, whilst in the evening, we offer you the chance to explore dining options at our numerous ports of call. Dalmatian food is very good indeed!
Classic boats offer mostly twin bunk cabins, though dependant upon the craft, triples and double-bedded cabins are sometimes available. An exclusive feature of the classic boat is that all cabins offer - private en suite bathrooms. Additionally classic boats offer towels, plenty of hot water, board games and ample shaded and sun deck space to lounge about! As the cruise offers purely relaxation, it is entirely up to you how you enjoy each port of call. Relax or explore? The choice is yours!
PLEASE NOTE: The Captain reserves the right to change the route due to weather and sea conditions or to ensure the boat stays on schedule. The boats have an onboard motor which is used for the majority of the time rather the sails.

Here's what some of our past travellers have written in to us and said about their experiences on this trip.
Cruise Dubrovnik - 8 days
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!

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!
