Departure at 13h towards Korčula, an island best known as the birthplace of Marco Polo, the famous explorer. Covering much of the island are the distinct, almost black pine forests so Korčula is also known as „the Black Island“. Korčula Town is like a mini Dubrovnik, also encased by medieval stone ramparts and towers.  The famous Moreška sword dance-fight is thought to have come to the island when the Moors raged through this region and there are regular performances.

A guide will lead you through the old town where tiny streets are designed in a fish bone pattern for a very good reason that you will hear about!  Lots of simple konobas, restaurants and cool cocktail bars (some with cool music) for chill out time. Overnight in Korčula.

Day 2 - Korčula - Metković

Breakfast , Lunch , Captain's dinner

Today we discover one of the last remaining wetland deltas in Europe. We cruise to Metković, on the banks of the river Neretva after which the delta is named. Here, mandarins grow by the water channels and we take a barge ride to explore the groves, the flora and fauna, wild birds and the traditional way of life of the Neretva people. There’s a delightful, “time warp” feeling like nowhere else on the coast. Narona archeological museum in Vid, which we visit, was formally inaugurated in 2007 as the first „in situ“ museum in Croatia exhibiting the remains of a Roman temple.

Named Augusteum with 17 marble statues, some outsized and some of natural height. This is where the ancient Illyrians, Greeks, Romans once sailed, and, according to legend, the pirates of Neretva planned their raids on enemy galleys. Captain’s dinner with live entertainment on board scheduled for this evening.  Overnight in Metković.

Day 3 - Metković - Split

Breakfast , Lunch

Upon arrival, a local guide takes us for a walk through the historic and buzzing old town centre and to the market.

Wine and waterfalls! Cruise towards Skradin then board our coach. First stop is the famous Bibich winery for wine tasting and light tapas lunch. Back in Skradin we walk through the Krka Waterfalls National Park and visit “Skradinski Buk”. Jaw droppingly beautiful, this is the most popular part of the waterfall area. There are 17 waterfalls, with cascades up to 100 m wide, and the Krka river tumbles 45.7 meters. A never-to-forget experience is swimming under the falls so bring your swimming things and enjoy the crystal clear fresh water.

Šibenik, is almost in the very central part of Croatia’s Adriatic coast and is our afternoon destination. Explore the glorious old town, the cultural monuments and possibly the most famous one here, the UNESCO listed Cathedral of St James.  Wander and discover the historic core and waterfront. Some good boutique shopping too. Dinner on board. Overnight in Šibenik.

After breakfast we leave for Zadar, the oldest university town in Croatia, famous for its rich historical heritage of world importance. At every turn history is here:  the Roman Forum from the 1st Century, St Donat church from the 9th century - the most famous medieval basilica and the symbol of the city. The mighty city walls encase the old town and there is a representative city gate from 16th century.

Among many museums, the Museum of ancient glass stands out together with over 30 churches and majestic family palaces and villas. On the waterfront the award winning Sea Organ and “Greeting to the Sun” light installations, show the funky side of Zadar. Overnight in Zadar.

Departure towards Rab, known as the “island of love”, with an old town of the same name. Guided city tour including the medieval walls, the famous four towers (and maybe climb one of them later!) together with palaces, churches and squares. There’s a slight Montmartre feel with many artists painting and exhibiting out on the streets.

Legend has it that local nuns created a special Rab cake for a visiting Pope and we will sample this after the tour. The recipe remains forever secret. Overnight in Rab.

Breakfast , Lunch , Dinner

Our experienced guide will tell you magnificent history of Opatija and show you its most precious monuments. Walk the famous Franz Joseph promenade – Lungomare to the fishermen's village of Volosko, home to some of the best seafood restaurants in Croatia, or enjoy Kraš Choco bar to try exclusive chocolate cocktails, cakes or ice-cream.

There’s a real café-society here. Farewell evening dinner on board with live entertainment, a great opportunity for swapping addresses on the last evening. Overnight in the port of Opatija.
