For up-to-date information on travel and COVID-19, click here.

The islands off the coastline of Croatia are some of the most beautiful in Europe and there can be no better way to explore them than by small ship. Sailing on a newly-renovated motor cruiser, your journey will begin in the beautiful walled city of Dubrovnik, a Unesco World Heritage site since 1979.

Explore the winding streets, imposing palaces and atmospheric piazzas before boarding your home for the next seven nights. You'll stop off Mljet, Korcula and Croatia's sunniest island, Hvar, as well as visit the picture-perfect waterfalls on the river in Krka National Park. Admire the country's sun-soaked Mediterranean shores from your comfortable small-ship, complete with a salon-restaurant, bar and a sundeck with a jacuzzi.

Relax and unwind on-board

MS Ohana offers stylish cruising for just 38 guests in 18 en-suite cabins. On-board there's a salon-restaurant where meals are served informally, there's also a TV lounge/ bar area, plus ample comfy seating and a sundeck with a Jacuzzi. Sailing along the Adriatic on a small ship allows time for swimming stops in picturesque bays, not reached by the big cruise ships. With no overnight sailing you can enjoy the evening ambience in the atmospheric towns en route.

The Dalmatian coast

This itinerary starts in the fascinating city of Dubrovnik, with its labyrinth of limestone streets and alleyways, palaces, churches, monasteries and picturesque piazzas. You'll then sail to the green island of Mljet and Korcula, a Venetian stronghold and the alleged home of traveller Marco Polo, visit buzzing Hvar, Croatia's sunniest island, Vis and Šibenik. There will be an included excursion inland to Skradin, from where you can visit the Krka National park and Trogir, another town protected by Unesco and with architecture founded on its Greek and Roman heritage.

Your final few stops are Croatia's cultural capital Split, home to the Roman emperor Diocletian's palace, now another Unesco World Heritage site and also famous for appearing in HBO's Game of Thrones, the neighbouring island of Brac and Omiš where you'll disembark after enjoying a farewell meal. Don't miss this opportunity to relax on-board this newly built, intimate motor cruiser, while enjoying spectacular views over the crystal clear waters of the Adriatic.
