Your captain will then escort you down to our private jetty, provide a short safety briefing and tour of the motor yacht, before introducing you to our destination for the day: Mljet island and its stunning national park reserve.

Labelled “one of the most seductive of all the Adriatic islands”, Mljet is a true gem and certainly not one to be missed on any Croatian getaway. Over two-thirds of the island is covered by dense forest, with a good portion of this designated a national park. Here you’ll discover aromatic pine forests, fascinating flora and deep blue saltwater lakes that captivate the senses. The rest of the landscape is dotted with luscious vegetation, fields, vineyards and traditional villages. The island also possesses a stunning coastline, with several beautiful sandy beaches and crystal clear waters.

Upon boarding our motor yacht in Korcula, it’s a speedy 30-minute transfer to Mljet island. Our vessel has an intimate capacity for only 18 guests, ensuring you’ll receive attentive service and plenty of space to relax and unwind on board. This is what places us a cut above other commercial trips to Mljet: you can expect to receive a truly exclusive experience carefully tailored to your every need.

During the day you’ll have the opportunity to immerse yourself in everything that makes this island so special. Hike on trails around the spectacular lakes in the acclaimed national park. Swim in crystal clear waters, admire the marine life and unwind on sandy shores. We’ll also organize a snorkeling excursion, allowing you to witness more fantastic sea life up close and to admire the island’s coastline from a unique perspective. What’s more, they’ll be a delicious full course Dalmatian lunch to look forward to back on the yacht.

Today we embark on a fabulous trip to the stunning Lastovo island, home to a prestigious WWF-listed nature park, along with a breath-taking coastline and quaint historic town.

Lastovo is a small speck of emerald green situated amidst the vast open seas of the shimmering Adriatic. As one of Croatia’s most isolated islands, it makes the perfect escape for those seeking to immerse themselves in nature and discover a landscape virtually untouched.

The day will encompass plenty of opportunities to sample the pristine nature and beautiful traditional architecture, along with adventure activities and a plethora of fresh food and quality wine, all sourced directly from the local farms, vineyards and crystal clear seas.

Our cuisine

On Korcula island we believe that eating well is just as important as any adventure activity. Once you’ve tried the wonderfully fresh, mouth-watering Mediterranean cuisine for yourself, you won’t blame us!

So you can expect plenty of seafood, pasta and salad dishes, along with copious amounts of homemade cheeses and fresh fruits.

Evening meals are not included, but on most nights we do provide free transport into Korcula’s Old town and to a number of the island’s very best restaurants. With one of the largest populations of any Croatian island, Korcula offers a fantastic range of dining experiences, from fine dining establishments to great pizza places, charming seafood restaurants to agro-tourism ventures. The island is also famous for its wines, and you’ll have plenty of opportunities to sample some of the most renowned local varieties.

5 star ratingPerfect way to experience the islands! Zoran and Blaza were wonderful hosts for our stay on Korcula island, at their lovely penthouse apartment with a gorgeous view. Zoran organized everything for the four of us, including ferry tickets to and from the mainland , taxis, and meals. Each day began with a lovely breakfast on their covered patio. Then a new adventure began, aboard one of their comfortable motor yachts, as we made our way to different locations for the day. It was very hot so Zoran felt it would be best to stay on the water, rather than hike and bike as we had originally planned. This turned out to be a good decision, as we loved the beautiful swimming and snorkeling spots that he brought us to each day. We visited the beautiful islands near Lombarda (the town where our apartment was) the island of Vis, and the blue cave, as well as the island of Mljet, where we swam in the lake and rode bicycles. Zoran’s crew prepared a delicious Dalmation style lunch aboard the boat each day. We used Zoran’s bicycles and kayaks to explore areas nearby, including the small island of Vrnik and the sweet town and wineries of Lombarda. Everything was included in the price ahead of time, so there were no additional costs for us other than dinner out. The hospitality and opportunities that Zoran and Blaza gave us were exceptional. This was a perfect way to experience the islands, we highly recommend!!
