Home » Island Hopping Luxury Yacht Tour from Dubrovnik
This 7-night tour begins and ends in Dubrovnik, where you can explore the UNESCO world heritage city, before we sail to some of Croatia’s most charming towns and villages along the Dalmatian coast.
You will have seven days (six nights) on board our luxury yacht where you will be joined by a skipper who will take you to each destination and offer local knowledge; as well as a hostess who will provide food on board.
Each day will bring a new destination to explore, with a good mix of sailing and adventure in between.
For active travellers you’ll be spoilt for choice, with hiking, snorkelling, cycling and swimming.
Or if you prefer to take it easy you’ll feel at home on some of the islands’ beautiful beaches, or enjoying food and drinks in delicious harbour restaurants.
We are sure that you’ll be charmed with the scenic Dalmatian coastline along this route, and fall in love with Croatia’s friendly hospitality.
We set sail from Dubrovnik, and the first destination is Šipanska Luka, on the island of Šipan.
From there we head to Ston on the Pelješac peninsula, before moving on to the island of Mljet and Polače bay.
Next we visit Korčula Town, then Lastovo’s Zaklopatica bay.
Heading back we have time for another stop on Mljet and a final stop at Lupod island, before we return to Dubrovnik.
7 nights/8 days
April | May | June | July | August | September | October
We will collect you from Dubrovnik airport and transfer you to the port, where you will meet with your skipper at 2pm, and he will welcome you and your group on board the yacht.
Once you are all checked-in to your cabins the yacht will sail to the island of Šipan, 17 kilometres away.
We will moor for the night in the town of Šipanska luka (Port of Šipan) next to the Konoba Kod Marka restaurant where you can enjoy an evening meal.
After breakfast we will sail to Ston on the Pelješac peninsula, famous for its salt pans, which are thought to be the oldest in the Mediterranean and have been in constant use for 4000 years.
The town is also famous for 3km of defensive walls and fortresses, originally built in the middle ages to protect the salt.
This is the largest defensive wall of its kind in Europe, and only the Great Wall of China is larger worldwide.
We leave Ston and head for Mljet Island, which is one of Croatia’s protected National Parks.
The yacht will moor in Polače bay, where, according to legend, Odysseus was shipwrecked and detained by Calypso who wanted him for her husband.
You’ll find plenty to do on Mljet – you can walk, cycle or kayak around the two saltwater lakes, which were carved out from the last ice age.
One of the lakes has a small island with a 12th-century monastery.
Mljet is also home to the Adriatic’s largest coral reef, which is great for snorkelling and scuba diving.
There is no hurry to set sail in the morning as our next stop, Korčula is only a leisurely two-hour sail away.
Korčula Town is nicknamed “little Dubrovnik” because of its Medieval architecture, and houses with red-tiled roofs.
You’ll find plenty to do in Korčula – learn about the history of the town and it’s connection to explorer Marco Polo.
Relax on one of the scenic beaches; or if you want to enjoy some fine food and drinks, head to the LD restaurant, or one of the rooftop cocktail bars.
One of Croatia’s unspoiled wonders, the Lastovo archipelago was once a military base, and was only recently reopened to the public.
Lastovo Town is perched on a hillside, with panoramic views across the islands.
On the northwest coastline, you’ll find an old submarine tunnel built during Tito’s reign, and all around the island is a paradise for scuba divers and snorkelers.
As we begin our return towards the mainland there’s time for another stop at Mljet, this time at Šaplunara Bay on the eastern end of the Island.
The bay is famous for its three sandy beaches which are surrounded by pine forests, making this the ideal spot to relax for the day.
This will be your last day on the yacht, so we will make the most of it by stopping at Lopud island for lunch, where you’ll have the opportunity to swim or relax on the sandy beach of Šunj.
In the early evening we will arrive back in Dubrovnik, and disembark the yacht, leaving you free to experience the delights that Dubrovnik has to offer.
Why not add some additional nights in a hotel to your trip, to really make the most of your visit?
Our driver will pick you up from your yacht in the morning and drive you to the airport for your flight home or to a hotel in for the remainder of your trip!
