ULTRA FESTIVAL CRUISES
5-day one-way Ultra Festival cruise
from Dubrovnik to Split
Official check-in is from 5pm onwards but you can arrive to the boat earlier, leave your bags onboard and choose from the many activities happening in Dubrovnik that day.
We recommend: (1) Doing the awesome buggy safari – you are taken to Mount Srd to get a bird’s eye view of the Old City and Elaphite Isles before driving an off-road buggy around the mountain. Unmissable!
(2)Taking a cable car ride up to Mount Srd for the most incredible view imaginable (note: buggy trip takes you past same cable car station for same view).
(3) Dubrovnik is also the setting for the capital city of Westeros, Kings Landing, in Game of Thrones. If you are a fan, why not take a walking tour of the locations of the most famous scenes in the ultra-popular show and get an overview of the history of Dubrovnik at the same time?
(4) Take a shuttle boat over to Lokrum Island from the Old City.
Dinner is served onboard at 6.30pm, when you will also be given your welcome speech and be introduced to everybody else on board. The evening is yours to enjoy in the Old City. Overnight on the boat in Dubrovnik (Gruz Port).
Optional excursions: Buggy Safari and/or Game of Thrones+Dubrovnik Walking Tour.
Dubrovnik to Korcula (Korcula Old Town, the ferry port, or Lumbarda)
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. We are spoilt for choice with swimming spots en route before we dock near the Old City (with the same name as the island). This pocket town is another gem which hosts a street party in the evening at the Deja Vu Bar, and the Jungle nightclub for later in the night.
Optional excursion: Wine-tasting
Korcula to Hvar Island (Hvar Town, Stari Grad, or Jelsa)
Hvar is rated as one of the highlights of the trip and it’s not hard to see why. Its quaint 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 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 nothing beats catching the sunset at Hula Hula bar, then taking the organised shuttle boat over to Carpe Diem – the famous “club on an island”.
Hvar Island to Split
Our final, full day starts with a swim stop at one of the many Pakleni Islands near Hvar and continues past Brac Island on the way to the biggest city on the Dalmatian coast: Split.
In the afternoon we dock into Split, with enough time to take in some of the inspiring sights of this city, including Diocletian’s Palace, the iconic statue of Gregory of Nin and Bacvice Beach. Then, the evening is free for the FIRST NIGHT OF THE ULTRA FESTIVAL!
If you fancy something adventurous in the afternoon then we can also transfer you to Omis for a Rapid Rafting excursion on the River Cetina.
Optional excursion: Rapid Rafting.
After breakfast it is time to say goodbye to your shipmates and crew. Check-out is by 9am.
Of course, the Ultra Festival continues over the weekend, so catch as much of it as you can!
