Discover stunning islands, clear seas and Dalmatian cool
Spend 15 glorious days exploring the Dalmatian Coast on a cruise from Split to Dubrovnik. With a mix of picture-perfect shorelines, ancient cities teeming with history and European charm, Croatia is truly a Balkan beauty. This tour blends well-known highlights like Zadar’s promenade with quiet charms like a hearty lunch in the Opuzen wetlands and the simple pleasure of daily swim stops in the Adriatic – the perfect way to see guidebook favourites and little-known treasures. Tonnes of ports, pretty coastal towns and clear waters make the Adriatic Coast is the perfect destination to explore on an Adventure Cruising tour.
This adventure includes a detour to Mostar in Boznia and Herzegovina, where you can snap photos with the town’s iconic bridge and hang out with local craftsmen and metalworkers.
Kayak through the tiny islands and bays of the Kornati National Park archipelago or kick back with a beer on deck and take in the views – the choice is yours.
Listen to the lilting sounds of Zadar’s Sea Organ while you watch the sun go down with a glass of bubbles in hand.
Take a relaxed guided walk in Plitivice Lakes National Park, the ideal way to see the terraced lakes and waterfalls of this World Heritage-listed beauty.
There’s nothing like diving into the aquamarine waters of the Dalmatian Coast. Weather permitting, our captain will stop the ship for regular swim breaks during the trip.
This is small ship Adventure Cruising, which means you’ll be sailing on a yacht with 30—50 other people. While the boat is spacious and comfortable, the tour focuses more on the destination than on-board activities. Instead of a pool, we have the sea itself. Instead of a casino, we’ve got board games and a good book. There’s also no formal dress code to worry about. Wi-fi is available for a small charge.
Our ship moves under engine power, rather than sailing, so all cabins will experience light engine noise when the ship is moving (and occasionally when we drop anchor). It’s probably worth packing earplugs if you’re a light sleeper.
Unlike other ships that cruise through the night, we’ll spend our evenings docked at port. This will give you more time to dine ashore and enjoy those balmy Croatian evenings. Cruising will mostly take place during the day.
Onshore activities and excursions will involve a bit of walking. You’ll be visiting ancient sites and historical places, and at times you may have to cross cobbled streets and uneven ground, sometimes in hot conditions. If you have any concerns, please speak to your group leader before taking part.
Most of our departures run in peak season, when the seas are calmer. The ship will experience some roll and pitch in choppy conditions, however all of our ships come equipped with stabilisers to minimise movement. There will be seasickness tablets on board and your crew will do all they can to minimise any discomfort.
There are no lifts (elevators) on board our ships, so you’ll have to navigate a few steep flights of stairs (fitted with handrails) to access all the decks.
Summer temperatures can be very high in many of the regions visited (over 40°C), which can be uncomfortable. It’s important to use sun protection, wear layers to combat the heat, and drink plenty of water. Please carefully consider the time of the year you wish to travel and your suitability to that season.
As accommodation on this trip is twin-share, single travellers will share a room with another traveller of the same gender. However, if you’d prefer not to share, a single room supplement can be booked at an additional charge, subject to availability. Please ask your travel consultant for more details. Couples should note that many hotels in Europe don't have double beds, but rather two single beds that can be pushed together.
