Overview

Highlights

  • All aboard for a week in paradise. If there’s a better way to check out the historic towns, protected forests and stunning islands of Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast then we haven’t seen it.
  • Car-free Lopud is a pedestrian paradise in the Insta-worthy Elafiti Islands.
  • Go wild in the untouched forests of Mljet, which haven’t been spoilt by busloads of tourists.
  • Visit Odysseus Cave where, according to legend, the king of Ithaca once found refuge after surviving a shipwreck.
  • Chill out in Korcula, swimming through coves ad lounging in the shade under olive trees.
  • Row, row, row your boat… from Vis Island to the eerie, magical neon glow of Cave Bisevo’s blue grotto.

Short Description

Experience the old school cool of Croatia in this sailing adventure from Dubrovnik to Split. Spend days cruising around epic coastlines, stomping through thick national parks, checking out medieval towns or jumping off the boat into warm, crystal waters to swim. Go ashore and eat and drink your way through the restaurant and bar scene, indulging in the freshest seafood and awesome local wines while watching unforgettable sunsets.

Small ship cruises usually have a max passenger count of 500. The primary purpose of these trips is to spend time off the vessel in local ports (e.g. Mediterranean) or experiencing nature (e.g Galapagos or Antarctica). Cabins can vary from budget to luxury.

Itinerary

Day 1 Dubrovnik

Dobro Dosli! Welcome to Croatia. Your adventure begins with a group meeting with your skipper at 3 pm at 'Pizzeria' next to the ACI Marina reception, Dubrovnik. The first port of call is then the local supermarket to buy supplies for your trip as a group. If you have any special dietary requirements, please make sure you notify us at the time of booking so we can accommodate your requests. Then, it's time to set sail to the charming islands of Elafiti, where you’ll pull up in a small bay and snorkel in crystal-clear waters. Elafiti is made up of three main islands: Kolocep, Lopud and Sipan. Kolocep is known as the green island because of its 100 year old pine groves, carol-trees, olive groves and citrus trees. There are also two villages to explore here – Donje Celo and Gornje Celo. Lopud has spectacular parks and beaches and is one of the best developed touristic islands in the Dubrovnik area. The island is also home to several monasteries and ruins to explore. Sipan is the largest of the island group with a long history full of stories and legends and considered one of the jewels of the area. If possible, we highly recommend you arrive a couple of days early into Dubrovnik as this trip only has one night in port before setting sail. The undisputed jewel of the Dalmatian Coast, Dubrovnik is a beautiful white stone town surrounded entirely by city walls. Although it experienced devastation during the war in the early 1990s, the old town – with its tiled roofs and stone buildings – remains as charming as ever. Extensive restoration has taken place to return it to its original splendour, and even today repairs are still being undertaken. With the sparkling water of the Adriatic in the background, Dubrovnik is picturesque, full of character and can easily be covered on foot. After boarding the boat, leave the mainland shores and sail the open waters of the Adriatic to the hidden paradise of the Elafiti Islands.

Day 2-7 Sailing the Dalmatian Coast

Set sail for the Insta-worthy island of Mljet (four to five hours), where ancient legend says shipwrecked Odysseus lived for seven years. Today the island is a haven of lush national park, forests and tiny villages. It’s had quite the chequered past, and has been inhabited by Illyrians, Romans, Slavs and Avars. Catch your reflection in inky blue lakes on a guided tour through the national park. Wander beneath cool pine forests, through epic chasms and gorges, and discover ruins such as the remains of an Illyrian fortification, a Roman palace and a 5th-century church. In the evening maybe kick back with a glass of local wine – an important local industry, which you might have guessed from the fields and vineyards that cover island.

Day 8 Split

After breakfast on the yacht, the trip comes to a close at around 10 am. There are no activities planned for today. Please do not book a flight out of Split that leaves earlier than 3 pm today, in case our arrival is delayed due to weather conditions.

At the airport in Chang Mai at the end of my tour with the amazing Gung. I can’t wait to travel Intrepid again! I was able to still be independent with just the addition of amazing local knowledge!! Gung you are family now xo I also made new friends that I think I will visit over the next couple of years. Thinking Africa on some back to back tours in a couple of years.

I've sadly just finished the Serengeti Trail. Words cannot describe how amazing this was. We had 13 awesome people in the group and the 3 crew - Benson, Kioko and Kennedy were amazing beyond any expectation. Everything was smooth, no hiccups, campsites and lodgings were fantastic. We saw 4 of the Big 5 and even experienced some things that the crew hadn't seen before. I've learnt so much and now enjoying some downtime in Zanzibar.
If I could suggest 1 thing, would be another electric fridge for our drinks, there is one for the meat. After drinking warm everything for 3 days, we were dying for a cold drink and you couldn't get ice.
Im glad the tour wasn't full too so we could spread out a bit on the truck.
If you are lucky enough to get our crew, you are in good hands.
Recommend single supplement for solo travelers, just makes it a little less awkward and more comfy

This was our 6th adventure with Intrepid and equally as brilliant as our previous 5.
A fantastic 17 day basic tour "Maya encounter".
What an amazing group, one big happy Intrepid family. Our tour leader Jason Atilano was a dream, a truly wonderful man who organised everything and made dreams come true, from arranging local transport, amazing and affordable restaurants, hidden adventures and even a tarantula visit in Tikal.
I love Intrepid tours, simply because they take you into the heart of the community and allow you to absorb the real atmosphere of these beautiful countries in a responsible way. They allow you to step out of your "comfort zones" should you so choose, but it's optional. A home stay with a local family was an absolute honor and a privilage. A night camping under the stars in rain Forrest was a definite highlight. Looking up at the Milky way and an early wake up alarm from the howler monkeys, not something you get to experience every
night.
This is why I always choose Intrepid, every new trip is another new and very memorable adventure. Just like life, you get out of it what you choose to put in.

Guides

On this trip you will be accompanied by one of our skippers. Your skipper's role involves taking charge of the sailing, the safety of the vessel and safety for all passengers on board. Skippers all hold a Yacht Master Offshore license or higher and have completed an intense training and review process before sailing with us. They are also fully qualified in CPR and First Aid. The aim of the skipper is also to take the hassle out of your travels by organizing the overall operation and smooth-running of the trip, managing trip logistics and coordinating the kitty (where applicable). Your skipper will provide information on the places you are travelling through, offer suggestions for things to do and see, recommend great local eating venues and introduce you to our local friends. While not being guides in the traditional sense you can expect skippers to have a broad general knowledge of the places visited on the trip, including historical, cultural, religious and social aspects.
