Go Croatia Sail 2019: Croatia Sailing Cruises Split-Dubrovnik 2019

8-day Ultra Return and 5-day one-way Croatia Sails
Departures: 13th July 2019
For the past 6 years, ULTRA have held their European Festival in Croatia and it's been such a success that they have returned for 2019 - 12th, 13th and 14th July!
To coincide with this incredible electronic music festival, we have a special Ultra Cruise departure:
13 July Ultra Return - Starts in Split but after a short cruise to a nearby island for a pre-Ultra warm-up party, the boat returns to Split and overnights in the city on 13 July for the second night of the festival. The boat leaves Split for Makarska on Sunday 14th July.

These itineraries are designed to give you the best of both worlds: sightseeing, swimming, and chilling out during the sail, with overnights in Split for the festival!
With our experienced, fun crew, and like-minded shipmates (aged between 18-39), you are in the right hands for the trip of a lifetime! 
Ultra tickets are NOT included (as you can do 1, 2 or all 3 nights of the festival - it's up to you!). To purchase Ultra tickets, visit their website here: Buy Ultra Tickets
The full itinerary for the Ultra Cruises are below.

Day 1

13 July: Split to Ciovo to Split

After jumping on board and meeting your Captain, crew and shipmate, we depart Split at 1pm and get the atmosphere going with lunch and a quick cruise over to nearby Ciovo Island.

At Ciovo it's time to find a bay for swimming, drinks and dancing on deck with a pre-Ultra party! We head back to Split in the late afternoon and re-dock in the late afternoon, giving you time to have dinner, hit a couple of bars and make your way over to the stadium. The boat will overnight in Split so you can get back onboard at any time in the night/morning, as long as it is before 6.30am!

Day 2

14 July: Split to Makarska

With a boat-full of recovering heads (and bodies), we take it easy in the morning with a long swim-stop, and get into Makarska in the afternoon, giving you time to go around the town, grab a gelato and have dinner in one of the many restaurants, pizzerias and tavernas that line the promenade. The most popular way to spend the night is at the famous Club Deep, also known as the "Rave in a Cave". Say no more.....

Day 3

15 July: Makarska to Mljet

Our boat leaves early for the crossing to Mljet Island. After lunch, we will dock in either Pomena or Polace and have the rest of the afternoon free to explore this island's stunning National Park and its lakes - the peaceful antidote to Makarska's hedonism!

There are several options for this exploration: hire a bike for a couple of hours and pedal your way around the lakes' cycle paths, hire a kayak for paddle-power or simply go hiking. Sometimes, when the Mljet ports are overcrowded, after a few hours at the National Park we leave Mljet in the early evening and head to Slano for the evening/overnight. We also offer an onboard BBQ this evening in Mljet/Slano as the setting is perfect.


Optional excursions: Entrance to Mljet National Park (approx 110 kunas), bike or kayak hire (from 40 kunas), Captain's BBQ (approx 100 to 150 kunas, depending on inclusions)

Day 4

16 July: Mljet or Slano to Dubrovnik

With some gorgeous bays around Mljet island, we are spoilt for choice for a swim stop this morning. We then cross to Dubrovnik through the Elaphite archipelago of islands - a truly amazing sight.

We arrive in Dubrovnik in the early afternoon, which gives you time for some must-dos, including a sunset walk around the famous walls and sampling a cocktail at one of the cliff bars as you watch the sun go down.

There are plenty of restaurants to choose from in and around the Old City, as well as events at clubs such as Revelin.

Day 5

17 July - Dubrovnik to Korcula

It's goodbye to Dubrovnik and hello to more incredible scenery as we head to Korcula Island, which is said to be the birthplace of Marco Polo. The Old City (with the same name as the island) is another gem which hosts a small street party in the evening at the Deja Vu Bar!

Optional excursion: Wine-tasting

Day 6

18 July - Korcula to Hvar Island (Hvar Town or Stari Grad)

Hvar is rated as one of the highlights of the trip and it's not hard to see why. Its pocket harbour is a thing of beauty but you only get to truly appreciate it after climbing up to the fort that overlooks everything in the bay.
We arrive after lunch but often we are not able to dock until late afternoon until due to port restrictions. We strongly recommend taking a water taxi over to the city to get there earlier (3-4 Euros per person payable directly to the taxi)
Hvar's nightlife is also legendary and we recommend catching the sunset at Hula Hula bar and taking the organised shuttle boat over to Carpe Diem - the famous "club on an island".

IMPORTANT: Hvar Town's small port is often overcrowded in peak months (end of Jun to end of Aug) and the port authority may order the boat to dock elsewhere, such as Stari Grad, about 35 mins by bus from Hvar Town.

Day 7

19 July - Hvar Island to Split

Our final, full day starts with a swim stop at one of the many Pakleni Islands near Hvar and continues with a trip over to Brac Island to cruise past the iconic beach featured in almost every promo video about Croatia: Bol's Zlatni Rat (Golden Horn) beach.
In the afternoon we dock back into Split, with enough time to take in some of the inspiring sights of this city, including Diocletian's Palace and Bacvice Beach.

If you fancy something more adventurous then we can also transfer you to Omis for a rafting excursion on the River Cetina.

Optional excursion: Cetina River Rafting

Day 8

20 July - Split

After breakfast it is time to say goodbye to your shipmates and crew. Check-out is by 9am. The adventure does not need to stop here though. There is no better tour to take afterwards than the incredible Go Bosnia Tour that departs at 10am from Split. This tour visits the best of Bosnia, including Kravica Waterfalls, Mostar, Sarajevo, the Olympic Mountains and Trebinje. Check it out here: Go Bosnia Tour
