Discover the delights of the Dalmatian Coast of Montenegro and Croatia with this seven-night blue cruise on a traditional wooden gulet yacht,
You won't find a better base for this vista-filled blue cruise, taking you on a round trip from picturesque Unesco heritage Kotor.
Walk the cobbles of Cavtat, visit famous monasteries and swim in the deserted bays of the Elaphiti islands. Take in one of the Adriatic's best-preserved old towns in Kotor, peruse the medieval village of Perast and experience Dubrovnik.
Emabrkation at 5 pm. Meet the crew with traditional welcome drink. After a short navigation we will arrive at Perast, where we will spend the first night on board enjoying dinner and company.
The Gulf of Kotor (Boka Kotorska) cuts deeply into the coastline of the southern part of the „Yugoslav" Adriatic, creating four spectacular bays ringed in mountains, the “fjords” of the Mediterranean
The little town of Perast is situated where the innermost bays of Risan and Kotor converge. Preceded by two jewel-like islands, Perast is focused on the sea.
From the interaction between mainland and bay, the inherent contrast of stone and water, the dialogue of island and wave, sometimes in harmony but often in conflict, this sea-faring town has derived its unity, strength and sense of purpose.
After breakfast we start our trip from Perast to Herceg Novi. During day we will serve lunch on board and make few stops for swimming.
The view on Herceg Novi from our gulet is breath taking. A tradition of importing seeds, exotic plants, trees and fruits from around the world has transformed Herceg Novi into a veritable botanic garden, carefully tended and expanded over centuries. Built on a series of terraces, this Town Garden is positioned perfectly, with a view of the open sea and two peninsulas, Lustica and Prevllaka.
Herceg Novi is also known as the town of the writers. The list of famous writers for whom Herceg Novi was a muse is long. Writers have always been fascinated with Herceg Novi and this love for the town grows with each new generation. Perhaps it is the dominating blues and greens of this sea-landscape that brings tranquillity and inspiration.
After breakfast we start our trip from Herczeg Novi to Cavtat. Again during day we will make few stops for swimming and lunch on board.
Cavtat is the most southern town of Croatia. The area attracts with its Mediterranean vegetation which covers the whole area.
Another holiday advantage is the unpolluted sea and a very attractive mixture of old and new architecture. The list of attractions among Cavtat is long; the Rector's Palace, the Baroque church of St. Nikola, the Franciscan monastery, the Racic Mausoleum, archaeological sites of the pre-Slav period, old city walls and the famos Šipun cave.
Cavtat also offers a 7 km promenade by pine forests paths only a few meters from the sea. It is one of the rare places along the Croatia coast offering such harmony.
After breakfast we start our todays trip from Cavtat to Sipan. During day we will serve lunch on board and have a few stops for swimming.
Sipan Island (pronounced shee-pan) is the largest of the Elaphit Islands. In between is a verdant valley composed of olive and fig trees, vineyards and citrus groves. Sipan is famous for its wine and for its delightfully laid-back ambiance.
Sudurad is a sleepy village stretched along the harbour and dominated by the 16th-century castle of the wealthy Stijepovic-Skocibuha family from Dubrovnik.
The most important historical sights are the fortified church of the Holy Spirit dating from 1577 and the parish church, which contains several 15th-century paintings. Dining is simple in Sudurad. A few taverns are in and around the wharf serving up coffee, cake, ice cream and simple meals.
After breakfast we start our trip from Sipan to Dubrovnik. During the day we will serve lunch on board and make again a few stops for swimming.
A city tour will uncover one of the world’s most beautiful town, a walled wonder that has been welcoming traders and visitors for hundreds of years. Enjoy a stroll around the charming car-free old town, packed with aristocratic palaces, baroque churches and medieval fortifications.
We will stay overnight on board in Dubrovnik harbour.
Like previous days after breakfast we start our trip for that day. We take direction from Dubrovnik to Tivat.
Again during the day we will make few stops for swimming and lunch on board.
After that we follow our route to Tivat, situated in the central part of the Bay of Boka at the foot of Vrmac. The Bay of Tivat is the largest of four bays forming the Bay of Boka. In addition to visit the beautiful center of Tivat, it is also worth to visit the first luxury marina on the Adriatic, Porto Montenegro. Walking in marina Porto Montenegro is a fun, glamorous and relaxing experience, with many facilities, restaurants highest rank and fashion brands. International delicacies and authentic traditional Mediterranean cuisine can be tasted in one of five restaurants in the village, from Italian delicacies, local traditional and international cuisine to Japanese sushi.
After breakfast we take direction from Tivat to Kotor. Again during day we will make few stops for swimming and lunch on board.
The old Mediterranean port of Kotor is surrounded by fortifications built during the Venetian period. Located in the Bay of Kotor (Boka Kotorska), it is one of the most indented parts of the Adriatic Sea. Some have called it "the most southern fjord in Europe", although it is a submerged river canyon.
Four centuries of Venetian domination have given the city it´s typical architecture wich contriuted to make Kotor a UNESCO world heritage site.
After breakfast with your fellow travellers disembarkation starts around 9am.
