On Board – Set Sail on the Adriatic Sea, Boarding your Sail in Dubrovnik
As your plane descends over the Mediterranean Sea, you will catch your first glimpse of the effervescent waters that will be your base for the coming week. As you approach the rock plateaus and orange roofs that epitomize Croatia, you will know adventure is but moments away. After clearing customs and collecting your baggage, you will meet a private driver who will transfer you to Gruz Harbour in time for your early afternoon departure.
After you settle into your deeply luxurious cabin, return to the deck to catch a last look at Dubrovnik. From the Adriatic Sea, the walled Old Town bears a striking resembles to a lively medieval city. It will be no surprise that this has served as the filming sight for the Game of Thrones’ famous royal city of King’s Landing! As the city drifts away into the horizon, glittering shades of blue will surround you. Interrupted only by occasional islands and sea birds, you will finally be at sea. Tonight you will enjoy the first of many evenings on board, where the resident chef will delight your palate with flavors of the Mediterranean.

Glide away from the orange-roofed walled city of Dubrovnik as you drift into the Adriatic Sea aboard a gulet sail or, optionally, on a private yacht. As vibrant blue skies begin to blend seamlessly with the effervescent cobalt sea, you will find yourself in the heart of the Mediterranean and on the edge of adventure. Take a moment to slip effortlessly into the tranquil waters before indulging on board with a feast filled with local olives, oils, wines, seafood, and produce. Relax amidst elegant surroundings as you begin to float island to island, exploring the mystique of Croatia’s Dalmatian coast.
Of course, this intimate sail extends well beyond the sea. Arriving first on the Elaphiti archipelago, step into a world of aristocratic elegance. Faded mansions and sandy promenades exude a luxuriously simple aura, while the forested island of Mljet embodies something even more modest and natural. This of course is contrasted by the marbled walkways and Roman infrastructure that covers the ever-cosmopolitan island of Hvar and seaside town of Split. Here, vibrancy and opulence dominate a landscape fringed by the remains of palaces, churches and magnificent fortresses. Interrupted only by fields of lavender and signs of recent turmoil, life here sits in perfect complement to earlier destinations.
The pace changes once more as you sail into the Makasara Riviera. Humbled beneath the shadow of Mount Biokovo, the pebble-fringed shores of this gently winding river provide moments of quiet solitude amidst the striking natural beauty. Take a moment to slip into the fresh water or to stroll up into the forest, before beginning the return voyage to Dubrovnik. Having grown deeply familiar with the rhythm of Croatia after a week at sea, return to Dubrovnik to explore the unique subtleties of “Kings Landing”, before permanently returning to shore and traveling home.
