Split to Dubrovnik Luxury 4 day cruise
Description of Split to Dubrovnik Luxury 4 day cruise
If you’re short on time, but don’t want to skimp on pleasure, you can still cruise the classic route from Split to Dubrovnik in style, thanks to a luxury motor yacht. You won’t feel rushed when the days involve daily swims in secluded bays, lovely lunches on board, and tours of the coast.
Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast is a wonderful cruising area. Off shore are a series of leafy, pretty islands, and each port is surrounded by attractive old towns with terracotta roofs and marbled streets. For four days, your home is a smart motor yacht from which swimming is easy, and sunbathing even easier.
This cruise departs from Split, a city that sits, not on, but actually amongst, the ruins of Diocletian’s Palace, an enormous Roman complex. Next you’ll head to the islands, including Brac, with its famous pebbly Golden Horn beach, and Hvar, a resort island with a charming historic heart.
Once you arrive at the walls of your much-anticipated last stop, Dubrovnik, you can marvel at the city’s dramatic location, and enjoy a walking tour to unwrap its centuries of history.

The food and wine served on board is almost 100% locally produced, supporting many small producers, keeping food miles to a minimum and helping to maintain the traditional small scale farming and fishing that the coast and islands depend on
The management of these vessels is dedicated to sustainable tourism in Croatia and are passionate about raising awareness of environmental, economic and sustainable tourism policies in Croatia. They believe the promotion of environmental awareness in the region will have a prolonged and positive impact on the livelihoods of the local people and maintain Croatia as a sustainable tourism destination for future generations.
The vessels that we use are all built in Croatia, specifically for use in these waters. This ensures that the most appropriate local resources are used wherever possible, and that the vessels are all built to comply and exceed local environmental and sustainability regulations.
By using small ships to visit and stay in some of the smaller ports and villages, we are providing an opportunity for a boost to tourism without the need for potentially unwanted and inappropriate new hotels to be built, and without increasing road traffic.
By using small ships, we can visit all the small ports and harbours larger vessels cannot access. These ports are often quite close to each other so we don't cover much distance at all, whereas the larger vessels have to travel much further to find a port they can access, using a lot of extra fuel while missing out on many of the best bits.
PeopleVast floating blocks of flats, otherwise known as cruise ships, arrive direct from Venice and spill their loads onto the Dubrovnik dock where they are met by a huge fleet of buses that whisk them for a couple of hours in the beautiful city. These monoliths cruise past one of Europe's most beautiful coastlines with barely a second glance, and without a thought to the places they are missing.
The vessels we use are all locally owned, operated and crewed. The captains are usually the owners of the vessles, and often most of the crew will be extended family! The food and wine served on board is almost 100% locally produced, supporting many small producers and helping to maintain the traditional small scale farming and fishing that the coast and islands depend on.
In the evenings all passengers are left free to eat ashore, in restaurants of your choice. This further supports local business and communities by putting money into the ports and harbours we stay in, providing employment and further utilising local produce.
