DAY 1: Set Sail!
We will pick you up and transfer you to the harbour at Sukošan where you will meet with the yacht’s skipper and check in to your cabin.
The usual check-in time is after 2 pm, setting sail at 4 pm; however, we recommend arranging an early check-in, which is available from 12 pm, allowing an earlier sailing time of 1-2pm.
With the earlier sailing time, you’ll have time to stop off for a swim at the small island of Vrgada, en route to Murter Island – your first destination.
The yacht will moor on the northern side of the island, where you’ll have time to explore and dine in one of the islands many restaurants.
DAY 2: Tijašnica Bay
On day two you’ll set sail to the Šibenik archipelago, a group of 249 islands, only six of which are inhabited.
The area is completely unspoiled by tourism, and most of the islands don’t even have cars or motor vehicles.
The locals here mainly live off olive and wine production and fishing. You will head to Tijašnica bay where you can swim in the clear turquoise waters and enjoy food and cocktails on the waterfront terrace.
DAY 3: Šibenik
There is plenty of dramatic scenery today, as your skipper guides you through the passage of Saint Anthony towards the beautiful historic town of Šibenik, with its winding streets and UNESCO sites.
You’ll have time here to wander around, before continuing up the Šibenik Channel, along the Krka river, arriving at your stopover for the evening at Skradin, a delightful town nestled between the hills.
DAY 4: Krka National Park
In Skradin, you’re ideally located to get the first ferry of the morning to Krka national park, arriving before the huge crowds.
It’s only a short 20-minute journey upstream before you come to the breathtaking waterfalls.
There are walkways taking you up and across for photo opportunities, or you can swim in the freshwater pool at the bottom of the final waterfall.
In the afternoon, you’ll return the way you came, down the Šibenik Channel and out towards Kaprije island, which gets its name from the capers that grow there, along with olives and grapevines.
You’ll stop here for the evening, and will have beautiful views as the sun sets over the Adriatic.
DAY 5: Kornati National Park
You won’t have as long sailing today, so there’s plenty of time to take your time and relax along the route.
The first stop is Kakan island for lunch and swimming before you’ll continue on towards the Kornati Island group, another of Croatia’s National Parks.
The yacht will moor at Ravni Žakan island, which has restaurants offering a modern twist on traditional Croatian cuisine, as well as access to electricity and water.
DAY 6: Žut Island
Your route today takes you deep into the Kornati National park with its enchanting natural beauty.
The yacht will navigate through the islands and reefs arriving at Žut, the second largest island in the Kornati archipelago.
The island, although it has a delicious fish restaurant, has no permanent inhabitants, so it’s the perfect place to unwind.
Relax on the beach, snorkel among the coral reefs, or climb the hill and enjoy spectacular views of the sunset over the Kornati islands.
DAY 7: Return to Sukošan
You will depart Žut and return towards Sukošan.
This is the final sailing day, but there are still plenty of coves and inlets to explore around Pašman before arriving back at Sukošan marina around 6 pm.
Our driver will collect you and transfer you to a hotel for the night in Sukošan or Zadar, or drop you off at the airport for your homeward journey.
Day 8 (optional) Sukošan / Zadar
