MYSTIC ISLAND TOUR

Trogir - Bol - Korcula - Kornati - Lastovo - Stari Grad - Solta - Trogir


Day 1

Boarding will take place in Trogir. Soon afterward we will release our ropes and set sail for Bol on the island of Brac. Bol has one of the most beautiful beaches on the Mediterranean called, "Zlatni rat" (Golden Horn), which is constantly changing its shape due to the sea currents. Guests will be given the opportunity to go swimming on this famous beach all afternoon.

Day 2
Today we will head towards Korcula, the main city of the island bearing the same name. Korcula has one of the most alluring historical towns in Dalmatia and is often referred to has "Little Dubrovnik" due to its fortresses. In ancient times, Korčula was also known as "Black Island" due to the pine forests that stretch across the island and is also the birthplace of Marco Polo.

Day 3
From Korčula, we will set sail towards the island of Lastovo where in the former Yugoslav National Army had its military base. As a result the island was not open to visitors. Therefore, the island keep its authenticity and is a true oasis of tranquility enriched with Mediterranean vegetation. We will drop anchor in the cove of Saint Mihovil near the town of Lastovo where you will have plenty of time to familiarize yourself with the surroundings. In the afternoon, we shall return to the island of Korcula to Vela Luka. The town is located in a deeply recessed and protected cove on the west side of the island. In case of bad weather conditions, the captain will decide whether or not we spend the night in Vela Luka or a port in Ubli on the island of Lastovo.

Day 4
The destination today will be the second forbidden island, Vis. The island of Vis, was restricted to foreign tourists in the late 1980s. Vineyards replaced what were once the landing strips of the military air-force base. We shall spend the night in Komiža, a quiet town on the west coast.

Day 5
We shall sail five miles south of Komiža to the island of Biševo and the famous Modra spilja (Blue Cave). Around noon, the sun's rays are reflected through an underwater entrance creating a fascinating blueness. This unique sight can only be seen on a sunny day when the sea is calm. One enters the cave in a small boat in groups of 5 to 7 people. The cost of this is 30kn and well worth the price. Guests will be given an afternoon of swimming before we head to Vis.

Day 6
We shall set sail for Stari Grad, the oldest settlement on the island of Hvar. Stari Grad was once known as Pharos, the capital city of the island. Many historical sights are still witness to the splendor of those times such as Hektorovic palace. Stari Grad has the role of being the main city of the wine industry on this island. Every year at the end of September people assemble in front of wine cellars when wine-makers hand over their grapes.

Day 7
Solta, an island known for its olive plantations which produce a first rate, very dark olive oil, will be our destination today. Guests will enjoy swimming in a cove that can only be reached by sailboat or rowboat. From Solta we shall return to Trogir. Trogir is known as the "city of museums". Lovers of culture, history, and art are in for a treat.

Day 8
