THE ITINERARY
 
Day 1: Saturday
SPLIT to MAKARSKA

After meeting your Koda crew, we depart from Split harbour heading towards the vibrant Makarska at midday to start your Croatia Sailing tour! Cruise along the Dalmatian coast whilst enjoying your lunch with your new friends. Then it's time to dip into the Adriatic for your first of many swim stops.

 

We dock in the port of Makarska in the late afternoon giving you plenty of time to check out the local markets, have fun with the water sports available or stroll through the old town taking in the local sites and admiring the Biokovo mountain range tucked in behind the town.

 

Tonight you have the chance to taste some local dishes and experience the fun nightlife this town has on offer...cave bar anyone?

 
Day 2: Sunday
MAKARSKA to OMIS

From the beauty of chilled out Makarska, we make our way up to the adventure capital of the Dalmatian coast to the seaside town of Omis to get some thrills!​ ​

 

Here you'll have your chance to get the blood pumping with our optional river rafting excursion on the Cetina river. Then keep that adrenaline high (literally) as you zipline over the Cetina from one side of the mountain to the other. ​​

 

For those wanting a bit more relax time, you can explore Omis old town, walk to the fortress for great views of the town or head down to the beach. This small town has something for everyone!

Day 3: Monday

OMIS to BOL

We start the day in Omis with a Zipline across the Biokovo mountain range. This will get the adrenalin pumping for the week ahead! A lunch in town before getting back on board to make our way over to the island of Brač where we visit the seaside town of Bol. ​

 

We'll dock in the afternoon, enough time for you to explore the local markets on the way to the famous beach Zlatni Rat (the Golden Horn).

 

This beach amazingly changes shape each day depending on the tide and strength of the current, as it is on one of the windiest peninsula's along the coast. Chill on the beach and watch the wind-surfers show off their high flying skills!

 

Day 4: Tuesday

BOL to HVAR

Morning departure towards the Pakleni Islands for lunch and a refreshing swim stop. We then head to one of Croatia's most popular islands, Hvar, the longest island in the Adriatic. ​

 

You'll have the afternoon to take in some of Hvar's highlights such as the hilltop fortress with postcard views of the surrounding islands and the town's old square. Here you can enjoy our wine tasting excursion with views of the 16th Century cathedral and bell tower. ​

 

Finish the night indulging in some of Europe's best nightlife entertainment. Experience the famous club Carpe Diem club, set on its very own island!

 
Day 5: Wednesday
HVAR to KORCULA

We wave goodbye to Hvar and depart for Korčula, the birthplace of famous explorer Marco Polo. Enjoy lunch on board in the Lumbarda bay near to Korčula. With a late afternoon arrival into the port, there is plenty of time to swim this afternoon. ​

 

Once docked, you'll get an orientation of the Old Town where you can find more legends, tales and monuments than anywhere else. Listen to the story of the stone walls, which were built over two centuries ago. Meet the group for dinner and sunset cocktails in one of the numerous seafront restaurants looking out to sea. Stunning!

 
Day 6: Thursday
KORCULA to MLJET

We depart in the morning towards Mljet Island with a stop on the Pelješac peninsula for a refreshing swim. In the afternoon we take a visit to the salt lakes in Mljet National Park to enjoy the sun, sea and tranquility of this peaceful island.

 

In the middle of the large lake, inside the National park, you can visit the monastery and church on St. Mary isle. Overnight we dock in the port of Polača/Pomena.

 
Day 7: Friday
MLJET NATIONAL PARK
to DUBROVNIK

After breakfast we set sail for Dubrovnik, always the highlight of the week. Enjoy the nature along the way towards “Kings Landing" (Game of Thrones fans get excited!). Arrive in Dubrovnik in the afternoon when you can explore on your own or join our guided tour of the city.

 

Take a ride on the cable car up to Srđ mountain for spectacular views of the Old Town, walk the famous city walls, or enjoy an afternoon Cider at the 'hole in the wall' bar and watch the local cliff divers wow you with their fearless leaps into the Adriatic.

 

Enjoy delicious seafood in the local restaurants and get ready for a night out on the town visiting local bars and one of the best clubs in Europe. A night you won't forget! ​

After breakfast the next morning, the Koda crew bids you farewell as you continue your adventures through Europe from the port of Dubrovnik.

 

What are you waiting for? It's time to get on board.

Let's get sailing!
