One way charter Croatia

One way charters are becoming more and more demanded and the most popular route is from Split to Dubrovnik or the other way around.


Some other destinations are available as well, but not so many boats are available for those one way trips, so it is better if you organize your one-way trip at least about 6 months before you plan to go.


Also, please note that not many boats are available for any one-way charter route in Croatia, and that for one-way charter additional one-way charter fee is obligatory. The rates for one way charter fees are variable, they depend on the route and each boat. The prices vary from € 280 - € 900 for some routes and boats.


Suggested sailing route:


ONE WAY DUBROVNIK TO SPLIT

DAY 1.

Dubrovnik – Lopud (bay of Sunj) – Sipan port


Dubrovnik

Depending on the time of day you would like to start sailing on Sunday, the destinations may vary. For example, if you would arrive earlier in the day maybe the destination to reach during the day could be further, like, the island of Mljet, bay of Prozura, or maybe Polace, the entrance to the National park.


DAY 2.

Sipan – Mljet - Korcula


Korcula

Korcula is a must-see on this journey, an old Venetian town, home place of Marco Polo, and lively nightlife.


The birthplace of Marco Polo was built on the foundations of a Greek colony, and is the historical and tourist center of the largest island in the Dubrovnik region. It is famous for its streets that are shaped in the form of a fish bone and well-preserved Gothic and Renaissance buildings. 


Among them stands out the Cathedral of sv. Marko [St. Mark], whose rich interior guards the works of great Italian painters. The people of Korčula have preserved their customs and the medieval knight’s game “Moreška” that takes place on the town streets. The gentle Mediterranean cuisine will challenge the palates of even the most fastidious gourmets.


Along with the gifts of the sea (mussels, fish, crabs), delicious desserts such as Cukarin, the Dubrovnik cakes rožata and klašun go very well with the local Korčula wines - Grk, Pošip, Plavac and Rukatac


Near the town of Korčula, there is an archipelago of 20 uninhabited islands covered with dense thicket, and an accessible coastline. Here is also the slightly larger islet of Badija with its pebble beaches and beautiful Franciscan monastery.


DAY 3.

Korcula – Pakleni islands – Hvar


Hvar

The center of the sunniest Croatian island of the same name - Hvar is a unique blend of luxurious Mediterranean natural surroundings, layer upon layer of a rich cultural and historical heritage and sophisticated tourism. Located in picturesque natural surroundings on the south side of the island, surrounded by mighty medieval walls, magical fields and the scent of lavender, Hvar is a never-ending treasure of monumental heritage, culture and atmospheres. Its name originates from the word PHAROS - the Greek name for the island of Hvar and the town which was formerly in the place of the present Stari Grad (the Old Town) from which it took over the title as island center in the 13th century. From its castle Španjol, high above the town, majestic views open up over the green Pakleni otoci (the Hell Islands) (ACI Marina Palmižana) and the open sea. The main city square in front of the cathedral by the Arsenal and the oldest European theater from the 17th century are a favorite gathering place for tourists. Many museums hide valuable works of art (The Last Supper from the 15th century in the dining room of the Franciscan Monastery) and the Benedictine Monastery, famous for its lace making from agave fibers, is often visited.


DAY 4.

Hvar – Blue cave - Vis


Vis island

Far from the mainland and its problems is the island of Vis, rich in citrus fruits, palm trees and fishing areas. The farthest island of middle Dalmatia is Vis, famous for its clear sea and protected underwater world, rich in sunken ships and miraculous flora and fauna. Due to a large number of hidden bays, oases of peace which are hard to reach, it is a real paradise for sailors.


Vis is a historical monument in its entirety because of the many preserved facilities (remnants of the Antique town of Issa, Roman spa, Issa necropolis, summer houses, churches, Tito’s cave). From Komiža, the famous fishing village, a marvelous view opens up towards the most distant Adriatic islands of Palagruža, Saint Andrew and Biševo, where the beautiful Modra spilja (Blue Cave) emits a strong blue color because of the play of light.


The town of Vis, on the northern side of the island, is located in a wide peaceful bay, where sailors gladly drop anchor. This is exactly where Dalmatia's most important town, the Greek colony of Issa, was situated in 4th century B.C. Vis is also known for its gastronomic delicacies - the Vis anchovy scone (viška pogača) and Vis bread (viški hlib), a delicacy dating back to Antique times and made of figs.


Day 5.

Vis – Brac - Starigrad


Island Brac

The island of Brač is the highest and third largest island in the Adriatic Sea. The island is well known for its quality stone used to build many palaces. This is the island with the only stone mason school in Croatia.


The Zlatni rat beach spreads to the west of Bol and is one of the biggest and most beautiful natural beaches on the Adriatic. Like a tongue stretching almost half a kilometer into the sea, it grows with the drifting deposits of tiny pebbles, changing its shape depending on the wind and the direction of the waves. Bol is a paradise for surfers because of the favorable wind, which always blows. There is an array of high-class hotel complexes and private apartments along the beach and the coastal promenade.In the vicinity of the town centre are a baroque summer house, castle, parish church and the small square “pjaceta”.On the eastern side, a Dominican monastery, one of the most beautiful in Europe, rises on the Glavici peninsula.Only two hours walk from Bol are sites of exceptional value - the Blaca desert (church and monastery from the 16th century) and Zmajeva spilja (a cave rich in reliefs, and home to Glagolitic priests).


DAY 6.

Starigrad – Split


Split Croatia

Stari Grad (the Old Town) - Pharos, the oldest city in Croatia, established by the Antique Greeks in 384 B.C., is the historical heart of the island of Hvar, one of the ten most beautiful islands in the world, known for the seductive scent of its lavender fields. The city is situated where the deep bay touches the greenery of the vast fields - the famous Hvar Ager (Starigrad field), which is included in the UNESCO list of World and Cultural Heritage.


The Starigrad field, the biggest and most fertile field on the Adriatic islands, stretches 6 km east to Vrboska, and it is bounded by the picturesque villages of Dol and Vrbanj on its southern slopes. This cultural landscape is the best preserved site of antique parcellation of land (HORA, AGER) in the world. There are many remnants of antique farm buildings - the so-called villa rustica. The field is mostly planted with vines and olives, as it used to be in antique times, and it is a unique, live antique landscape on the Mediterranean.


The most valuable part of the cultural heritage of Stari Grad is Tvrdalj, the fortified Renaissance castle with a fish pond and garden (16th century), which was owned by the famous Croatian poet, Petar Hektorović.
