We will avoid the heat of the day by getting up early to take a hike up Srđ mountain - a relatively easy hike with a rewarding bird’s eye view of Dubrovnik! We will take time to absorb the view and take pictures before we descend the mountain for a short transfer to Komolac harbour where the catamaran will be ready for boarding at 2pm. We will sail out towards Šipan island and the skipper will choose a good place to stop for a swim somewhere along the way. Once on Šipan, enjoy a walk in the village and have dinner in one of Šipan’s exquisite restaurants which the guide or skipper will be happy to recommend and reserve for you.

Today we sail out towards Mljet island and National Park which consists of two turquoise saltwater lakes surrounded by a lush, green forest. To see the most of what the national park has to offer, we will cycle around the lakes and stop for swimming along the way. We have lunch on the island and in the late afternoon, we sail towards the Pelješac Peninsula. We dock or anchor in Žuljana bay – just in time for our traditional Croatian dinner! Choose from a SUP Yoga class or a Sunset Paddle while dinner is being prepared for us on the boat.

We sail towards Ston – an old town surrounded by the world famous Ston wall. We disembark just short of Ston to pick up our bikes and take an easy 3km cycle to Ston. We pass through some impressive scenery, salt plains, and a breathtaking view of the famous wall. Once in Ston, take time to explore this charming town before returning to the boat and sailing to Šipan once again.

Once on the other side, we will stop for lunch in one of the best and most authentic fish restaurants in the area. After lunch, our boat will pick us up right in front of the restaurant to take us to our final hidden gem on this boat trip to the blue cave of Kolocep!

  • This (Sailing the Adriatic Adventure Retreat) was my first adventure retreat ever and it won’t be my last! This was by far the best thing I’ve ever done in my life. This was definitely out of my comfort zone with traveling out of the country for the 1st time and with strangers but I’m so glad I did this. I came back with a new view on life & I met some really great people who I now consider my friends. My heart is so full from this adventure! Thank you Jana & Mark for this amazing experience.

Sure, its easy because Croatia is an AMAZING country but Jana organized the retreat so well, allowing retreaters who love adventure to get in tons of awesome activities in one week!
