Leave Split to cruise to Hvar by ferry, and then sail around the breathtaking Pakleni Islands by yacht, and enjoy stops to swim or snorkel around their gloriously secluded beaches. Under the watchful eye of a guide, act as part of the crew and help handle the ship on a 4-hour sailing adventure. No prior experience is needed, just a desire to actively participate while soaking up the sights of Croatia’s beautiful island wilderness.
Enjoy a day away from the hustle and bustle of the city
Informative, friendly and professional guide
Meet your guide in the afternoon in central Split, and make your way to the port walking. Board your ferry and cross the sea to the island of Hvar. Dock in the harbor and transfer to your yacht to start your sailing adventure with a comprehensive safety briefing. All equipment — for both sailing and snorkeling — are provided for your use; just be sure to bring a bathing suit and sunglasses!
Set sail and cruise southwest across a stretch of the shimmering Adriatic toward the Palenki islands, a gorgeous chain of tiny islets that boast woodland, hideaway coves and deserted beaches. As you sail around the islands, admire their unspoiled scenery, and gaze at the sun-baked pebble beaches lapped by the turquoise waves of the Adriatic.
Many of the islands are perfect for mooring up and taking a swim, so do just that! Splash around in the water at leisure and even try snorkeling, if you wish. The exact islands visited are decided on the day by the yacht’s crew, but your itinerary will always include a stop at Palmižana, one of the more remote Palenki Islands. Use the stop to explore Palmižana’s lush botanical gardens, or enjoy a snack or drink (own expense).
In between exploring and swimming stops, help the crew with the handling of the yacht, and hear tips about sailing and navigation as well as learning about the local area and its wildlife. After four hours sailing around the island, return to Hvar, and then travel back by ferry to central Split where your experience finishes.
