Itinerary

DAY 1: SATURDAY                           SPLIT – PUCISCA, BRAC 

Embarkation commences from 11am. Must be onboard before 12.30pm. Departure from Split, followed by lunch onboard and a swim stop. Cruise to Pučišća on the northern side of Brač, a typical Mediterranean small town at the bottom of a deep bay, famous for the white stone of Brač, used for building the Liverpool Cathedral, the White House in Washington, and other famous buildings. Optional possibility to visit a stone-masonry workshop, one of the few such workshops still operating in Europe. Enjoy the domestic food, wine, and famous olive oil. Overnight in the port of Pučišća. (L)

DAY 2: SUNDAY                                BRAC – KORCULA
Early morning departure toward Korčula, the birthplace of Marco Polo. Swim stop en route to enjoy a morning swim in the crystal blue sea. Lunch will be served either on the tip of the Pelješac peninsula (near Lovište) or in the quiet bay of Kneža on Korčula island. Arrive in the afternoon, followed by a guided sightseeing tour of the exceptional Korčula town (included on Premium and Premium Superior only). According to legend, Korčula was founded by the Trojan hero Antenor in the 12th century B.C. Many legends and tales can be found here, as well as impressive monuments. In the evening, we recommend visiting one of the numerous local taverns or enjoy stunning views from the numerous cafes and bars. Overnight in Korčula. (B, L)

DAY 3: MONDAY                              KORCULA – LASTOVO 
Before leaving Korčula, why not take a walk by the marina or through the nearby open market to shop for some souvenirs and other local specialities. The cruise continues towards Lastovo, the farthest inhabited island in Dalmatia (approx. EUR 15, subject to change- to be paid on the spot to enter the Lastovo Nature Park). Dock in the port of Ubli. From there, the local bus or taxi drives to Lastovo village for a visit to the local winery and tasting some indigenous wine sorts (optional). The island is surrounded by many smaller islands, with secluded bays and coves perfect for snorkelling. The town is also known for the number of small churches and unusually shaped chimneys, unique to Lastovo. Overnight on anchor in the bay with the Captain’s Dinner on board. (Included on Premium and Premium Superior only). (B, L, D – included on Premium & Premium Superior only)

DAY 4: TUESDAY                              LASTOVO – RAVNIK – VIS 
Early morning departure towards Vis Island, which because of its unique geographical position was a strategic harbour for the Yugoslav navy and off-limits to tourists for many years. Vis has retained a rather special charm reflecting the “‘Mediterranean as it once was”. Near Vis, there is a tiny Ravnik island, with the Green Cave interesting to visit (entrance fee approx. EUR 12, subject to change). It was named after the unusual greenish light that reflects in the sea from the hole on top of the cave. A short swim stop depending on the weather conditions, and then set sail further to the town of Vis for overnight. Vis was developed near the remains of ancient Issa, the first urban centre in Croatia, formed by the Greeks in the 4th century B.C.  Visit the remains of the Roman Baths, City Museum, or take a walk enjoying the view of the beautiful Villae Rusticae situated along the coast. Overnight in Vis. (B, L)

DAY 5: WEDNESDAY                       VIS – BISEVO – HVAR 
Early in the morning, cruise toward the little island Biševo, to visit the Blue Cave, a magnificent natural phenomenon (entrance fee is to be paid on the spot, approximately EUR 18, subject to change). After the Blue Cave, the cruise resumes towards Stari Grad on the island of Hvar. Records confirm that Hvar is the sunniest island in the Adriatic. Free afternoon to explore this unique town and its famous horseshoe-shaped bay. The famous Stari Grad Field (a plain) is the oldest in Croatia and the best-preserved example of the ancient Greek system of agriculture. Both the old town and this plain are part of the world heritage protected by UNESCO. Overnight in one of the ports of Stari Grad, main or ferry port (2 km away), depending on availability. Optional guided tour of Stari Grad (included on Premium Superior only). (B, L)

DAY 6: THURSDAY                           HVAR – BRAC 
After breakfast, cruise toward the beautiful Brač island and the famous town of Bol which has one of the most unusual, and most photographed beaches in Dalmatia. Swim stop at Zlatni Rat (Golden Horn) a famous beach that shifts from side to side, changing shape according to the change in direction of the wind and waves. Bol is a typical fishermen’s town. It recently became a popular tourist destination but kept its charm. Take a walk on the seaside promenade or cycle along the promenade. Hike or rent a scooter to visit Vidova Gora (at 778m, the highest peak on all Adriatic islands) for a spectacular view of Bol and beyond or visit the semi-abandoned village of Murvica. Find a nice tavern or restaurant and taste excellent fresh fish, local wines, and other delicacies of this unique island. Overnight in Bol. (B, L)

DAY 7: FRIDAY                                  BRAC – SPLIT
Enjoy the last day relaxing and swimming in various quiet bays on the island of Brač before arriving in Split in the afternoon. Split is Croatia’s second-largest city, a busy university and maritime centre, and the capital of the Dalmatia region. The historical complex of Split with the Palace of Diocletian is under UNESCO protection, and its historical and cultural monuments are wondrous both to local inhabitants and to the many visitors who fall in love with this 1,000-plus-year-old beauty. There’s the possibility of joining a sightseeing tour of the old town (included on Premium Superior only) including Diocletian’s palace which the Roman emperor had built as his retirement home. Overnight Split. (B, L)

Wonderful 8 day cruise

Review for: Breathtaking Croatia Cruise Opatija-Split

Wonderful 8 day cruise on the Olmissum from Opatja on September 10 2022. The captain and crew were very professional and helpful in every way! The rooms and facilities were very comfortable and the food was excellent. Our on board tour manager, Josefine, was so knowledgeable about European history that she explained it effortlessly and with a real passion. We will definitely sail with this company again. It’s a great way to discover Croatia!
