Itinerary

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 - onboard  |  Dinner

Day 2

Mljet

Dubrovnik - Mljet. 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. Today 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.
Overnight: Mljet - onboard  |  Breakfast, Lunch

Day 3

Hvar

Mljet - Hvar. This morning we depart towards the island of Scedro where we will have time to relax and take a refreshing dip in the crystal blue waters. We continue to the jet set island of Hvar after lunch where we dock for the evening. 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.
Overnight: Hvar - onboard  |  Breakfast, Lunch

Day 4

Korcula

Hvar - Korcula. We depart this morning for Korcula - the famed birth place of Marco Polo. Upon arrival we have free time to explore the island independently. The island is a place of legends, tales and monuments - more than anywhere else in Croatia.
Overnight: Korcula - onboard  |  Breakfast, Lunch

Day 5

Trstenik

Korcula - Trstenik. Today 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!
Overnight: Trstenik - onboard  |  Breakfast, Lunch

Day 6

Sipan Island

Trstenik – Sipan Island. Cruising to the Elafiti Islands, the anchor will be dropped at one of the smaller islands, offering the opportunity to swim and snorkel in azure blue waters. Sipan, the biggest island, is our choice of port tonight.

The tour was excellent, the service on the boat was great, crew were excellent and the itinerary was mostly good. The only note for improvement would be some of the ports have restrictions on timing in terms of when you can dock. At these ports we then had to dock close by and stay on the boat. I understand the restriction but it would be great to have had the option to have water taxi's come by and for those who wanted to get to the island earlier to have that option.

A lovely holiday and Jelena and her colleagues were very good...couldn't fault them.

No real negative feedback except that the breakfasts were a little repetitive.

We noted that the chef did a remarkable job in a very small galley area.

We would certainly look at a repeat cruise but next time a little earlier in the season.....the weather was definirely becoming autumnal in Croatia in early September, which mistakenly we hadn't factored in.

We had an absolute fantastic time. Crew were great and other people on board. We were upgraded not sure why which includes a captain's dinner and guided walk in Dubrovnik. Even though my daughter was the youngest by far on board as she is only 20 we couldn't fault a thing. Meals were fantastic and thus is the best way to see Croatia. Would highly recommend it and already planning another trip back

Jelena was amazing! She was on duty from 08:00 - 24:00 every day with no day off until the end of the season yet she was always smiling, helpful and friendly and nothing was ever too much trouble. She made the holiday as brilliant as it was!

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.
