Our captain will dock in one of these bays giving the guests an extended swim stop and time to snorkel or use the various water toys on the yacht. We will arrive in Vis in the mid-afternoon. Vis was once a strategic Yugoslav naval base and off limits to visitors. Due to the island’s seclusion and isolation, Vis has retained a very unique charm that typifies ‘the Mediterranean as it once was’.

If you are feeling energetic take a walk up to Fort George which enjoys breath taking views over Vis and is a gorgeous spot to enjoy a drink and watch the sunset.

This afternoon you will arrive on the island and you will have a guided walking tour of the charming Old Town. The picturesque fortified town, ruled by Venetians in the past, has an ingenious layout in the shape of a fishbone.
Continuing our journey to Mljet Island and its lush national park, you’ll have time to wander the scenic paths that wind through the forest and around emerald-hued saltwater lakes, one of which is home to a tiny island with a 12th-century Benedictine monastery. Once everyone is back on board, we’ll cruise to the traditional fishing village of Slano which lies near another fortified village, Ston. You’ll have time to check out the ramparts and defensive walls before enjoying a short walk along the coast to an oyster farm. Look forward to enjoying samples of the fresh oysters and mussels, while learning more about Ston’s famous delicacy. Tonight, the Captain’s dinner will be hosted on board, complete with live entertainment.
Our last full day of the cruise brings us to the “Pearl of the Adriatic,” Dubrovnik. You’ll join a local guide for a walking tour of its medieval center, strolling its cobbled streets and marble-paved squares. Take in the sights like Rector’s Palace, one of the most impressive and important buildings in the old Dubrovnik Republic, before taking a walk right atop the city’s defensive walls for views of the endless red-tiled roofs, the Aegean Sea and the neighboring Elaphiti Islands. Afterward, enjoy time on your own to celebrate your experience by dining in one of the outstanding rooftop eateries while gazing out at one last sunset over the sea.
You’ll want to have your bags packed and ready early this morning – after breakfast and time for farewells to the crew and your fellow shipmates, now new friends, you’ll be met by private transfer for the drive to Dubrovnik Airport or your onward hotel in Dubrovnik if you’ve decided to extend your time here. As so many find it hard to leave, if you haven’t made plans to stay and aren’t ready to say goodbye, contact our travel experts who will be happy to help.
Big thank you to the team at Cruise Croatia for putting us on such a beautiful cat and along with skipper Ivan. We loved the Kornati islands, swimming off the back of the boat and getting away from the hussle and bustle in Split
