Island hopping luxury holiday in Croatia
Description of Island hopping luxury holiday in Croatia
Island-hopping holidays in Croatia is, not surprisingly, one of the most sought-after European trip ideas right now. The experience is absolutely idyllic as you are chauffeured around by luxury yacht, making day-trips to must-see locations such as Hvar, Vis, Mljet and the famous Blue Cave of Vis, with an overnight base on Korcula, the birthplace of legendary explorer Marco Polo.
This 10-day tour begins in Split, with the ancient Diocletian’s Palace the undisputed attraction. You’ll take a guided tour of the town, as well as a private tour of the stunning Plitvice Lakes National Park, before heading to the coast to step aboard your motor yacht.
There follows another seven nights staying in a boutique villa on Korcula, which you can make absolutely as hedonistic or relaxed as you like on this tailormade holiday. Each day sees you embark on a new adventure: to the glamorous party isle of Hvar; for a guided tour of Dubrovnik’s charming Old Town; to hike and snorkel in the Lastovo archipelago, to enjoy the shimmering reflections cast in the famed Blue Cave of Vis. Want to cool down for a while? Just ask your captain to moor up in a peaceful bay while you take a dip.
Chill on deserted paradise beaches, dine on sumptuous Dalmatian seafood, sample Croatian wines, coffee and ice cream on the Peljesac Peninsula, and generally enjoy a holiday that you’ll remember fondly for years to come and that will leave your friends contemplating their own once they hear your stories.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?
A mix of good memories. Dubrovnik was stunning but quite touristy. But Korcula was so peaceful and tranquil. The local seafood was amazing and the clarity of the seawater was beautiful. All the different excursions were great fun for different reasons.
2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?
It is quiet and quite remote so if you are looking for peace and calm away from it all; this is the place.
3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?
I assume tourism is important for the locals so yes; I guess they benefitted.
4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?
It did the trick of escaping from the rat race of London. We had a wonderful time but any longer in the same place might have been a struggle. We were itching to explore more of Croatia and the beautiful islands and landscape.
PlanetOn our trips we walk and hike on established paths and tell our guests not to feed, fish, hunt and disturb wildlife we encounter.
Our Motor Yacht for day excursions is specially designed WITHOUT Propellers, instead our engineers developed water jet system which is safe for sea animals, and our guests to swim safe around the boat.
In our office we minimize printing actions and recycle paper. Most of all, we ensure that negative environmental impacts are drawn to a minimum.
By booking this trip you get to see a whole new perspective of this beautiful part of Croatian Islands by sailing on our Yacht, kayaking and snorkeling on the hidden and best preserved parts of the clearest sea in Europe guests are given the chance to explore in a ways which are least harmful to the environment.
A visit to National Park Mljet island sea Lakes and park of Nature Lastovo Island is included in the program - the fees that we pay to the National Park contribute to the conservation of that area.
PeopleBy booking this trip you bring much needed income to the people who are still recovering from the war-torn years, as this was the area severely affected by war, especially Dubrovnik old city.This trip ensures that the local people benefit as much as possible in the form of jobs (we employ local guides and drivers only) and provision of accommodation (we use our own family owned Captain's Villa ). We also use our own transfer services, buy food from the small farms and work on developing responsible waste management by stimulating waste recycle.
By buying local products you are supporting this countries’ economy and helping Croatia to stand on her feet again! We consider it our responsibility to lead efforts to maintain and preserve the integrity of this fledgling sector by petitioning the introduction of tighter controls over the use of the country’s natural resources.
Captain's Villa is our small family run hotel that employs local people and in that way is irreplaceable in the community. Our hosts in the small family restaurant prepare breakfasts , lunches and farewell dinner with our own home grown food and fish from our own pond.
