Day 5, Korčula
Immerse yourself in Korčula’s narrow walkways and discover
Rich in vineyards, olive groves and small villages, and harbouring a glorious old town, the island of Korčula is the sixth-largest Adriatic island, stretching nearly 47km in length. Dense woods led the original Greek settlers to call the island Korkyra Melaina (Black Korčula). Quiet coves and small sandy beaches dot the steep southern coast while the northern shore is flatter and more pebbly.
Korčula is one of Dalmatia’s most relaxing getaways. The main town of the same name, set on the north-eastern tip of the island opposite the Pelješac peninsula, has one of the best-preserved medieval centres in the Adriatic. Historic Korčula is therefore the most popular south-Dalmatian destination after the more crowded Dubrovnik, with which it is often compared.

- Visit Korcula’s Picturesque Old Town
Day 6, Mljet
One of the most beautiful and most forested island in the Adriatic
Untouched nature, the island’s mysticism, olive groves, vineyards and rich forests are ideal places to research the rich flora and fauna, and to peacefully enjoy the pristine beauty of the natural surroundings. It was already mentioned in the fourth century BC in Greek writing, and the numerous Greek amphora and shipwrecks along the coast of Mljet are evidence that Greek sailors stayed on the shores of Mljet during their journeys.
Mljet National Park makes up most of the island, and there are several villages, two salt water lakes – Veliko and Malo jezero, and a Benedictine monastery on the island of sv. Marija. The Roman Palace, which is the largest after Diocletian’s Palace in Split and the Arena in Pula, is a part of the valuable heritage of the island of Mljet.

Those who seek paradise on Earth should come to Dubrovnik
Overlooking the calm blue waters of the Adriatic, Dubrovnik is one of the world’s most magnificent walled cities. Now a Unesco world heritage site and Croatia’s most up-market destination, it was once the capital of the wealthy sea-faring Republic of Ragusa (1358-1808).
Add to this the beaches, pristine sea, informal eateries serving top-notch seafood, chic five-star hotels and adventure sports facilities, and your holiday is made. Which is why celebrities such as Brian Ferry, Diego Maradona, Francis Ford Coppola and Tina Turner have recently been spotted here.

HAPPY CLIENTS AND PARTNERS
We had a great week with Blaz he really looked after us. Blaz was very professional, calm and respectful of the space we needed as a family onboard the catamaran. We felt the catamaran was ours. The route was well planned and thought out with in-out from all of us. Places we stopped for swimming were quiet and we often arrived before other boats to secure the best spot. Restaurants were in prime position and always had the best tables secured for our group. Prices were reasonable and in line with our budget. Blaz went that extra mile by getting up early and sailing whilst we slept to ensure we kept to a good timetable and saw as much as possible. The catamaran itself was spacious and had everything we needed. We felt safe an secure and confident that Blaz was looking out for us and safety was number 1 priority when securing the catamaran in bays and ports. Highly recommend Blaz to any group looking for a professional and very competent skipper who want a well-managed sailing experience whilst feeling very private and family focussed.
Trips with the Active Cruises are always full of fun! Meeting new interesting people, relaxed atmosphere and never ending activities with experienced skipper is an unforgettable experience every time! Keep up the good work! :=)
Trip of a lifetime! From start to finish a fabulous experience. Clear, quick communication during booking and check in. We stayed on the Lagoon 42 catamaran and loved everything about it. Originally we looked to book the Lagoon 39 but it was already booked so the Lagoon 42 was offered to us. So glad we went up in size after seeing the two side by side in the marina. Brand new boat this season and it was in excellent condition. Our Skipper Nick made our trip! Although he was on the younger side, he was very knowledgeable and also kept on top of weather leaving us feeling completely safe in his hands. Also, his route, restaurant and activity recommendations were spot on. He was fun yet respectful. A great person to spend a week of our vacation with. The islands theirselves were amazing. A perfect balance of activity and downtime from spending nights anchored out in a quiet bay, or an evening in a harbor exploring one of the many towns, snorkeling, SUP, island activities and just downtime for a glass of wine out on the front of the boat at sunset. We had a mix in our group of boaters and non boater and everyone came away loving their trip. We will definitely be back! Cheers!
We are back in Israel… even the 120 stairs we had to climb in Dubrovnik’s old city to arrive to our rooms, packed with 4 pieces of luggage and 5 super excited girls couldn’t take the smile out of our faces. We just had an amazing time on the boat. It was much above our expectations and you two just played a huge role in our successful holidays. Your patience and kindness with the kids meant a lot to us. All our needs were anticipated so we could just relax and enjoy. We are seriously thinking of renewing the experience next year.
This was one of the greatest trips we have ever had! It was our first time on a sailing trip and everything was perfect. Miha was very quick and clear to communicate when making the booking and provided detailed booking information. In terms of value it was well worth the money. And finally our Skipper Igor was excellent! He was extremely professional and provided a very safe sailing experience whilst also taking us to some amazing places that we would never have heard of otherwise. We have enjoyed some of the best food and wine in our lives and Croatia is such a beautiful place. Thank you to Miha, Igor and everyone else involved.
A fantastic week that exceeded expectations! The Catamaran was perfect as we spent the week with an awesome bunch of people and all had a great time. Skipper was great and the excursions super fun. Highlight of our trip to Dalmatia!
So young, So helpful, They made the trip so much better! Blaz is a young person with a very old spirit. Takes things that matter so seriously. He was fantastic! We felt so safe every second. I’d love to have him again for our next trip. Alex was great. We travelled the Amalfi last year on the boat with a ‘chef’. The coastline was beautiful, the food was good to great. Alex was much better than the Italian chef! No comparison. The time and effort he put into the food, presentation, and service was awesome! Alex made the trip so great, our guest had ‘the best time ever’ – and they are old! So that says something. Great trip, Exceptional skipper, 1st rate cuisine!
I would especially like to compliment the beginner course with Alex. He is an instructor that adapts the course to physical condition, acquired knowledge and desires of a student. He has great pedagogical approach, patient and clear explanations with great motivational techniques. Student can really enjoy and progress very fast. All compliments to Alex and thanks for a great course!
Just a note to thank you for a lovely week on Mala Kate with Igor. All the arrangements worked well and we were pleased how soon Igor was able to pick us up from Zaton last Sunday – we know he put in a massive effort to sail through most of the night and we really appreciate it! The boat was great and very luxurious – it was everything we had hoped for and just as you described it. The wifi was very strong which the girls appreciated and the luxury extras were very welcome.
As for Igor, he was a fantastic skipper, host and guide. It was a pleasure chatting with him about his sailing adventures and having him join us for dinner at some of his favorite restaurants. We always felt safe and comfortable under his professional eyes, and he looked after the boat very well. We would happily recommend Active Cruises, Mala Kate and Igor to anybody thinking of a chartered cruise, and hope to return again in the future.
Igor was a FANTASTIC skipper to have on board and we had so much fun getting to know him! He showed us some amazing spots, let us learn as much as we wanted sailing, and made everyone feel safe and comfortable. We can’t imagine a better fit for our family, the trip wouldn’t have been the same with anyone else! Thank you Miha for the quick responses to all of our questions leading up and making the booking process so simple. Would 100% recommend!
Just to give you a feedback on our cruise, we had a great time thanks to Blaze who is a very good skipper nice and gentle. Thanks to his knowledge of Croatian island we have seen marvelous landscapes, bays and had very good time and food in all restaurants, and I think it was the same for him.
The boat and crew were fantastic, being able to visit the islands and see the little villages was amazing, we also had a great crowd on board from various countries who were all very friendly, would recommend this cruise, and will go again in the future.
