Croatia Adriatic Sea Singles Only Island Hopping
Event Details Section

 

 

You’ll be island hopping and sailing with like-minded travelers as we visit the most popular highlights on the Croatian coast aboard a fantastic boat on the Adriatic right in the middle of the “peak season.” August is one of the best months of the year to be in this region because of great weather and warmer water temperatures.

Swim in secluded bays and once we are in port you can explore historic towns and villages. Watch golden sunsets with your friends sipping cool drinks from the decks of your boat and let the mood take you out in the evenings to waterside cafes or vibrant bars and clubs.
Our stops include the World Heritage listed City of Split and the spectacular ancient walled city of Dubrovnik – described memorably as “Heaven on Earth” by George Bernard Shaw.

Croatia is Europes’ often overlooked gem.  Traveling down the coast of Croatia, one of the sunniest in Europe, your boat will visit the beautiful island of Hvar, which has some of the most exclusive bars and clubs on the Adriatic.
The island of Korcula – the birthplace of Marco Polo, Hvar, the party capital of the Adriatic and the golden beaches of Brac all provide more opportunities to soak up history and culture with renaissance
Along the route your Captain will regularly moor up in small, untouched bays and beaches to allow you the chance to fling yourself off the boat into the clear, calm waters of the Adriatic for a cooling swim. During the trip you will the opportunity to do optional activities such as snorkeling and scuba diving, rafting, hiking and a day trip through to Mostar in Bosnia.        
Your breakfasts and lunches are freshly prepared for you by our on board chef each day. Come evening you are free to step ashore and visit one of the many waterside bars, cafes and pretty town restaurants. Absorb the sights and smells of a balmy Croatian evening while enjoying a drink and local specialty dishes.   
Breakfast at hotel. Morning at leisure. Late morning transfer to harbor and board ship. Departure from Split harbor is at 13:00. After lunch onboard the boat we stop for a swim at one of the hidden bays heading towards Hvar. Hvar is the longest island in the Adriatic and one of the best known. The 7th century walls with fortifications towering above the township, fascinating outlying Resin Islands, waterfront restaurants and famous bars make it a popular first night’s stop.
We overnight along the town waterfront where we have prime position to immerse ourselves in the atmosphere of restaurants and cafes. Climb up to the hill fort to enjoy the magnificent views across the town and outer islands before relaxing on deck sipping cocktails and getting to know your fellow travelers.
Often there are magical sunsets you wish would go on forever and combined with clubs such as Carpe Dieme, Veneranda and the Nautica Bar give those wanting a late night plenty of options to choose from. 
**Please note – If you miss the departure for any reason there are alternative ferries, which depart in the afternoon so you will be able to meet with the boats later in the evening.

About the boat: Ensuite Cruising Vessel 

 The Croatian Island experience is best done with a classic wooden cruising vessel. This allows you the access to all the hidden coves, small ports and beautiful locations that this region has to offer. These boats also allow us more personalized service and a chance for spontaneous stops.  You will really get to know your fellow travelers and helpful crew during your week in the Adriatic! Our Ensuite boat is great if you want the extra privacy and convenience of a toilet and shower in your cabin. The Ensuite boats are typically a little bigger than our Standard boats in size and because of this take an average of 30-40 travelers.
  

The cabins are based on twin share and are mostly bunk beds. The ensuite cabins are generally smaller with plenty space enough to shower and change comfortably. All bedding is provided as well as a cabin towel for personal use. We recommend you bring a beach towel for use on the decks or beaches. The cabins are mainly located above deck, which are sometimes over two levels (main deck & top deck). Our below deck cabins are located in the hull of the boat.    

All of the boats have fully stocked and licensed bars. Like traditional cruising, you won’t be able to consume your own alcohol onboard the boats, however the drinks provided are cold, well stocked, and prices are very reasonable averaging about 1.50 Euro for wine/spirits and 2.50 Euro for half a liter of beer. Local and imported drinks are available.
You will be served a homemade breakfast and lunch each day during the cruise consisting of freshly prepared foods and local dishes. Vegetarians and others with special food needs can be accommodated

All the boats have deck chairs to lounge about on, and other various inflatables for use in the water. If you’re not a confident swimmer all boats have small tenders (dingies), which the crew use to ferry people into the bays if you want to sit on the beaches rather than swim off the boat.
