Or this itinerary can be combined with another should you want to venture elsewhere. Otherwise, your driver will meet you at your hotel for a private transfer to Dubrovnik’s airport. Whatever your plans we hope you’ve enjoyed an experience of a lifetime along the Southern Dalmatian Coast.
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
