Tour Overview

TRIP VIBE = fun in the sun with refreshing swim stops, jaw-dropping scenery and time to hang with your crew. If a traditional Croatian sailing boat was vanilla ice cream, then our Plus boats are the sprinkles on top. Yep, you’ll still get bluer-than-blue swim stops, jaunts into ancient towns and stunning cities, and landscapes so good it actually hurts. But our Plus boats come with a few extra creature comforts. We’re talking bigger en suite rooms – and maybe a hairdryer (minds will be blown). Fresh linen and towel changes. Included hot buffet breakfasts and three-course-freshly-cooked-by-the-crew lunches. Plus, loads of deck space for all those great times with the gang. Been dreaming of cruising the Adriatic like the high-balling-but-budget-busting traveller you are? Meet your perfect match.

Highlights

  • Visit Hvar Fortress (entrance not included)

  • Visit UNESCO World Heritage–listed destinations Dubrovnik and Split

  • Orientation walk of Korcula Old Town with Trip Leader

  • Walking tour of Dubrovnik with local guide

Itinerary

Expand All

Day 1: Split (Croatia) – Hvar (Dalmatian Islands)

Location: Split, Hvar

Accommodation: Overnight Sailing

Meals Included: Lunch

Ready to spend your day horizontal on a sun-soaked deck. Diving head-first into translucent aquamarine water. Exploring the cobbled streets of ancient towns. And eating allll the seafood, stew and sauce-drenched pasta your speedos can handle? We thought so. Meet your awesome AF new crew in Split, then we’ll away anchors and motor to our first swim stop. Next: grub’s up – time to test how stretchy those swimmers really are with our first group lunch. And later, we’ll go for a stroll up to the fortress for some I-N-C-R-E-D-I-B-L-E views. Tonight, there’s an optional BBQ dinner aboard the boat. Dig in, me hearties.

Day 2: Hvar – Korcula

Location: Hvar, Korčula

Accommodation: Overnight Sailing

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch

Rise and shine sailors! Or sleep in – you do you. This morning is all about refreshing swim stops and embarrassing belly flops (soz, we mean world-class diving), plus seriously good food served up by our very own on-board chef. Later, we’ll sail on to the (supposed) home of Marco Polo. Known for its dry Croatian wine and dense pine forests, we’ll hit the cobblestone alleys for an orientation tour. Then? The afternoon is yours for the taking. You could climb to the top of Massimo’s old-school tower for a colourful cocktail. Or round up the fam and go on a treasure hunt for some black risotto (disclaimer: prepare for sexy Victorian-era stained teeth).

Day 3: Korcula – Dubrovnik (Croatia)

Location: Korčula, Dubrovnik

Accommodation: Overnight Sailing

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch

What’s your plan of action this morning? Swim? Sunbathe? Stuff (your face)? It’s the perfect opportunity to peel open that new pack of playing cards – Go Fish, anyone? This afternoon, we’ll dock at the most famous walled city in Europe. Thanks Game of Thrones. Take a moment to regret that big lunch as we squeeze through Dubrovnik's narrow cobblestone streets with a local guide. And later? Head to Bu~a Bar for relaxed cliffside bevvies. Or party like it's 1599 at the world-renowned nightclub inside a 16th-century fortress. Damn, the olden days were wild.

Day 4: Dubrovnik

Location: Dubrovnik

Accommodation: Overnight Sailing

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch

Don’t be fooled. Dubrovnik is so much more than snapping a selfie on some steps. Though you can totally get your fill of GOT with a Cersei-themed tour today, if that’s your thing. Rather take to the water? Sign up to a sea kayaking excursion – swim stops at the island of Lokrum included. Get your fix of awesome views with a stroll along the ancient city walls, or take the cable car up Mt Srd where there’s #nofilter required. Then tonight: hit the d-floor for round two. Or find a local wine bar to sample Croatia’s tasty grape-juice. DE-lish.

Day 5: Dubrovnik – Mljet (Dalmatian Islands)

Location: Dubrovnik, Mljet

Accommodation: Overnight Sailing

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch

Shake off last night’s antics with another all-you-can-eat breakfast and scenic AF swim stop. Today: it’s on to Mljet. Despite its lack of vowels, this place is pretty spesh. Once we dock, you’ve got the whole afternoon to simply do you. Our suggestion? Opt in to explore the National Park. Hire a bike and whiz around on two wheels. Take a boat over the Islet Melita and check out the monastery. Or jump in a kayak and go for a paddle. Tonight, there’s an optional Captain’s dinner aboard the boat to get stuck into. All in favour? Aye, aye!

Day 6: Mljet – Makarska (Croatia)

Location: Mljet, Makarska

Accommodation: Overnight Sailing

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch

Land ahoy! Time to set a course for the Makarska Riviera, one of the best unsung holiday spots in Europe. Score a spot at the bow (front) of the boat for the ride in – the view is going to blow. your. mind. Then, this afternoon is totally up to you. Take a stroll along the pretty promenade. Unleash your inner thrill-seeker with a side of adrenaline-pumping water sports. Lounge about on the pebbly beach. Or sip on a cold beer at one of the beachfront bars. Don’t forget to ask your Topdeck rep for some dinner recommendations – the seafood here is ridiculously good. Tonight, prepare to party pirate-style at Deep (think: cave club).

Day 7: Makarska – Split

Location: Makarska, Split

Accommodation: Overnight Sailing

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch

Ok, nobody panic – this is our last day together. So make every second count. Savour one last swim stop before we pull into Split this afternoon. Ready to roam like a Roman and discover a few thousand years of history? Opt in for a walking tour and tick off the likes of Diocletian’s Palace, Saint Domnius Cathedral and the Riva. Or head up to Prva Vidilica Na Marjanu for immense sunset views over the city. This is what you came for. Tonight, gather the gang for one last dinner together and give this epic nautical adventure the send-off it deserves!

Day 8: Split

Location: Split

Meals Included: Breakfast

After breakfast, it’s time to walk the plank. Jk – but you do have to bid farewell to your fellow shipmates *sob*. Swap those Insta handles – you’ll need them to plan next year’s reunion trip. Who said the adventure has to end here? Get booking the cheapest flight to Rome. Race you!

Trip was wonderful and Kat was an amazing guide! She was so friendly, kind, and informative. I felt like she had all of our best interests in mind. The crew were lovely and my fellow passengers were a blast. I would definitely do this again especially with Kat!

So fun, would recommend that everyone does a sail week at least once in their life. The trip leader and staff really helped make the week so great.

For the most part the boat was great! The only feedback I would give is: The aircon in the upper deck cabins - I slept on the top bunk and got very hot & sweaty during the night due to lack of airflow so I ended up sleeping on the floor for a couple of the nights. The drinks from the bar on the boat were very weak (bar tender didn’t pour full shots) also, we saw that the shots we ordered were watered down with lemonade and only added a very small amount of vodka/spirit which is a bit disappointing as we still paid normal prices for a shot. Happy hour was only 10% off which isn’t much of of happy hour. Other than that I really enjoyed the boat and the crew were lovely!
