DAY 1 SPLIT – MILNA (Brac) – HVAR (Hvar)
Sailing out from Split gives you a sea view of the city that’s unique. Enjoy the breeze as we head towards the island of Brac and the charming 16thC village of Milna, located on the western part of the island of Brac. It’s famous for it’s marvelous bays and being the birthplace of many of the worlds’ sailing captains and ships of the 18th and 19th century! Time for some swimming and snorkeling—don’t worry, we have the gear!
It’s a leisurely sail from here to the island of Hvar, probably the most famous Croatian island because of so many travel magazine articles heralding its great wine, island sightseeing and hot party action! And there is a lot to love about the lavender island-ancient villages, innumerable lavender fields, olive plantations and vineyards, enchanting stone streets and old Venetian palaces. We’ll spend the night on the boat, anchored in Hvar harbor. The old town’s well-known summer night life awaits you!
Distance: 26 NM
DAY 2 HVAR- BISEVO – KOMIZA (Vis)
In the morning we’ll sail off to the Pakleni islands archipelago, a labyrinth of several smaller islands that offer perfect bays for swimming and snorkeling.
Then we continue towards the small island of Bisevo to experience its famous “Blue Cave”. Accessible only by boat, the cave’s entrance is only 1.5 meters high and 2.5 meters wide. Between10AM and 1PM (13PM), the sunlight that penetrates through the opening in the Blue Cave and reflects off the white bottomed sea floor bathes the walls an ethereal blue–and objects in the water in silver. The sight is magical. After visiting the cave we will sail to one of the bays for swimming. If the weather is good, we might even visit the Green Cave, with a similar effect to the Blue Cave except in green! Late afternoon, we’ll be on Vis, spending the night at Komiza, an authentic fishing village known all over the Adriatic. Just 60 miles from the Italian coast, Vis is a very special island to locals and visitors alike. Closed as a military base until the mid 1980’s it’s much less traveled and retains a lot of its gorgeous natural beauty. Hard to imagine that in the 3rd C BC, this island, then called Issa, was the stronghold that the Greeks used to colonize the Dalmatian coast and rule supreme. During WW2, Tito and the partisans also used Vis as a stronghold. Just offshore, asleep at the bottom of the sea, is a graveyard of WW2 planes and ships that make diving here a real adventure.
Distance: 25 NM
DAY 3 KOMIZA (Vis) – PAKLENI ISLANDS – SOLTA ISLAND
After morning coffee we leave Vis and sail back towards the Pakleni Islands, where our skipper will bring you to more beautiful bays for swimming, relaxing, and soaking up some sun. Then it’s on to our final island destination, Solta.
Distance: 32 NM
DAY 4 – SOLTA ISLAND – SPLIT
Solta, despite being the closest island to Split, is one of the least visited in the entire island region. Known as the island of olives, honey and wine (an ancestor of Zinfandel was traced here and is only grown here), its 22 bays are a paradise for sailors and its curvy terrain makes it a must stop for bikers. Enjoy the day swimming and relaxing as we sail back to Split. Check out in Split should be around 6PM (18PM)
Distance: 11 NM
Prices depend of the date when would you like to sail and chosen category of the boat. We are offering PREMIUM and STANDARD category.
Premium boats are from 45 feet to 54 feet and besides the skipper, we also provide hostess who is in charge for breakfast and lunch on board. We usually advise to clients to eat dinners in great local restaurants along the route. The cost for this kind of boat with the crew is around 1100,00- 1600,00 euro per day (depending of the season) for the entire boat + 30 euro day/per person for the HB service.
This price includes boat charter, skipper and hostess, fuel. Boats are usually anchored close to ports and skipper provides a shuttle on dingy from boat to land and back. If clients would insist to moor in ports or marinas for some reason, than there are port fees, which are not included in the price. One example
Standard boats are from 35 up to 45 feet and more basic option without hostess or any meals available on board. So it is just boat, fuel and the skipper (no meals, no mooring fees included).
The cost for standard boat option starts from 600-900 euro per day depending of the season (date) and size of the boat.
Boats usually moor in ports, and clients pay for the mooring fees directly to port authorities.
(Cost: 60-100 euro/night, depending of the size of the boat and port).
For the Standard category it is usual that the client also takes care for the meals for the skipper, either by inviting him/her for meals or paying directly 30euro daily budget for food expenses. One example
