From Split to Dubrovnik by Equator

Split, Omis, Pucisca, Bol, Hvar, Bisevo, Vis, Korcula, Mljet and Dubrovnik aboard Equator

Sailing beyond the usual routes our newly customized one way itineraries are worth raising a glass to, calling on more remote hideaways such as Vis and Bisevo islands. With romantic, enchanting and timeless little ports in mind we invite you to discover the secrets of the Adriatic Sea and experience why it is known as the Mediterranean as it once was.

*please kindly note that the same cruise is also available on the reverse route Dubrovnik – Split.

DAY 2 • SPLIT – OMIS – PUCISCA ( BRAC ISLAND)
After breakfast, join us for a walking tour and explore with our guide some of the numerous archaeological, historic and cultural sites of Split. In 1700 year-old the historic core of Split inscribed under UNESCO World Heritage - and within a short walk distance from our ship- stands the massive Palace of the Roman Emperor Diocletian, dating back to the 3rd A.D. In the course of time the Old Town of Split developed inside and around the Palace which included three Roman temples and a massive mausoleum. Lunch will be served on board upon departure from Split and during our sailing towards Omis, the town located at the mouth of Cetina River. Omis has preserved its medieval town walls, stone churches as well as the most famous landmark – the Mirabela fortress. The old pirates of Omic used Mirabela as a lookout over the Channel of Brac, so that rich merchant ships had no way of sailing along the coast of Omis unnoticed. The fortress itself was built in the 13th century nowadays attracting visitors due to one of a kind view over the entire town offered from the top of the building. Upon crossing the Brac Channel we reach the largest coastal village on Brac Island called - Pucisca. Shiny and white stone facades rising amphitheatrically uphill make this place so unique and famous for its quarries from which stone was excavated to build limestone columns of the White House in Washington DC, The Parliament House in Vienna and many other famous buildings all over the world. Pucisca is also known for Stonemasonry School where students learn to carve local limestone with traditional and unconventional tools that have been used for centuries. We will spend the night in this quiet small town where nightfall unifies the diverse features of Pucisca that have intrigued us by daylight.
Meals on board: Breakfast, lunch

DAY 3 • PUCISCA – BOL – HVAR
We start our day with the morning departure towards Bol situated on Brac Island. Bol is well known for its pebbled beach called Zlatni Rat, claimed to be the most beautiful beach on the Croatian coast.

DAY 4 • HVAR-BISEVO ISLAND (BLUE CAVE) – VIS ISLAND
In the morning hours we set sail for the tiny island of Bisevo. Covering 6 sq km, Bisevo would hardly be noticed at all except for its remarkable Blue Cave (Blue Grotto). Out of some ten caves scattered around Bisevo's coast, the Blue Cave is the most outstanding. Between 11am and noon on a sunny calm day, rays of the sun passing through an underwater opening illuminate the cave with a luminous blue light while objects beneath the surface shimmer in silver and pink. Please keep in mind that a visit to Blue Cave is weather permitting. We will dock in the town of Vis on Vis Island, the most mysterious and the furthest and of the central Dalmatian islands from the coast. The town itself developed from the former settlements Kut and Luka, which became one entity in the 16th century by the building of the church Gospa od Spilica. Serving as a military base for the Yugoslav army Vis was cut off from foreign visitors from the 1950s until 1989. Due to such isolation the island remained intact with its authenticity in nature, architecture, ecological agriculture, peace and quiet, all that you will enjoy during your free evening. Overnight stay in Vis town.
