After breakfast, accompanied by your guide you will be transferred to the historical old centre, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, where your guide will show you the city’s most interesting sights. You will then have a little free time to explore at your leisure before returning to the boat around where lunch will be served while cruising to Mljet National Park, arriving late in the afternoon. Overnight in Mljet, (B,L)

DAY 3 • MONDAY • MLJET - KORČULA
Free time this morning to explore Mljet National Park (entrance fees are not included).

Lunch will be served on board as we cruise toward the Island of Korčula. On arrival you will be met by a local guide who will escort you on a tour of Korčula Town with its narrow and cobbled streets and rich history.

Overnight Korčula (B,L)

DAY 4 • TUESDAY • KORČULA - VIS
This morning we sail out to the Island of Vis with a swim stop en route, arrival is scheduled for this afternoon. Throughout the centuries, Vis was a well-known military and naval stronghold, due to its strategic position on the open sea. As the times changed, this turned out to be a benefit, as Vis was spared the excessive tourist development and thus retained its beautiful unspoilt beaches, ecological agriculture and traditional architecture. This afternoon you will have free time during which you can choose where to eat tonight. Overnight in Vis Town, (B,L)

DAY 5 • WEDNESDAY • VIS - BIŠEVO BLUE CAVE -HVAR

Here, sunbeams penetrate through a submarine opening creating a stunningly magical effect of deep aquamarine and shiny silver light. However at times, high waves prevent entrance to the cave (on the day notification only) which is also why entrance fees are payable locally. After a swim stop and lunch our next stop is Hvar which is one of Croatia’s most attractive tourist destinations and a meeting point of international jetsetters. Here you will join a local guide on a walking tour of this unique town, introducing you to its millennia-long history, culture and way of life. This evening is at your leisure. Overnight Hvar (B,L)
