Family Cruise in Croatia

Your cruisers MS Mirabela and MS Orkan

For the Vuković family it is all about shipping and hospitality. Silvio Vuković was the first captain of the family on MS Mirabela. His brother Josip joined him from the beginning. In 2013 Silvios son Ante took over, who decided to buy his own ship in 2017. Now his younger brother Luka is the captain. You may rest assured that you will be looked after on board this ship. So you can just enjoy the diverse programme and relax with a cool drink in a deck chair.

The Vuković family has bought the MS Orkan in autumn 2013. Captain Ante makes sure that all his guests spend an unforgettable holiday on his boat. It has a capacity of only 20 passengers and there is a familiar atmosphere on board. Make yourself comfortable and unwind – on one of the deck chairs in the sun or in the air conditioned saloon.

Day 1: Individual arrival in Trogir, Trogir – Split (by boat),
swimming break, city tour and walk

Welcome to your family cruise in Croatia! You will be expected at Trogir harbour between 12 and 2 pm. Before departure you will receive your rental bike and go for a test ride. As the boat weighs anchor, you will get to know the crew and your fellow travellers in the relaxed atmosphere on board. You will have your first swimming break on the crossing to Split – the clear water of the Mediterranean sets the holiday mood! Split is Croatia’s second largest city and the capital of Dalmatia. After a short city tour through the alleys of the town, you can join a walk through the Marjan forest park. Over 400 protected species of plants grow and flourish here.

View on the Old Town of Split

Day 2: Split – Makarska Riviera (by boat),
rafting tour and swimming break

If your children are already teenagers, this day will be the highlight of your family cruise: It’s time for the rafting tour! Abstract rock formations, which tower up to 180 metres above the crystal-clear water, mark the Cetina Canyon. An experienced skipper will show you the technique and equipment before your adventure begins. You’ll navigate rapids and pass waterfalls. You’ll get to see countless fish, dragonflies and ducks and if you’re lucky you might spot water turtles and wild horses. There will be two breaks where you can go for a refreshing dip, or courageously jump from a 5 metre high cliff. If you would prefer not to take part in the rafting tour you will have a lot of time to explore Omiš. Back on board, the Colombo will take you to the Makarska Riviera. On the way, the anchor will be dropped for another swimming break. The Makarska Riviera is well known for its fine, light pebble beaches, which are interrupted frequently by rugged rocks.

 

Sun deck on MS Columbo

Day 3: Makarska Riviera – Kućište (by boat),
approx. 10 km bike tour, short hike and wine tasting

Today your boat will take you to the peninsula of Pelješac. This south Dalmatian town is not only a popular holiday destination, but also well known for wine cultivation. Famous Croatian wines, such as Postup and Dingač grow particularly well on the island. A beautiful cycle route will take you from Kućište to Orebić, the island’s largest settlement. After a short tour of the town, you will hike to the 16th century Franciscan monastery. It was built 150 metres above sea level – from here you will have a stunning view of the Croatian coast. Back in Orebić a delicious wine tasting awaits you. Can you taste the sunshine? Afterwards you’ll cycle back to your motorsailer.

 

Bike tour, Peljesac island

Day 4: Kućište – Mljet island – Korčula island (by boat),
guided walk, boat trip and swimming break

During breakfast you’ll sail to the island of Mljet, large parts of which are protected as a national park. A guided walk will show you the obvious and hidden beauties of the untouched landscape. There are two salt lakes in the centre of the park, which are only connected to the sea through a narrow canal. A small monastery island is located in the larger of the two lakes. A boat will take you across to the island. Remember to bring your swimwear, as the water of the lake is 2°C warmer than the Mediterranean. Back on board of your boat, the next destination of your family cruise is Korčula, on the island with the same name. It is also known as Little Dubrovnik, due to the massive walls surrounding the historical town centre, which resemble a fortress.

Mljet island

Day 5: Korčula island – Hvar island (by boat),
approx. 15 km bike tour, cappuccino, swimming break, city walk and short hike

Large parts of the island of Korčula are covered by pine forests, which is why it was known as the ‘Black Island’ in the Middle Ages. A short bike tour will take you to Račišće. However, you won’t cycle through the forest for long, instead cruising directly along the sea. Enjoy the picture perfect view of the seemingly endless waves of the Mediterranean. Your boat awaits you in Račišće. Your ship is already waiting for you in Račišće. But before you board, we invite you to a cappuccino. The crossing to the island of Hvar is of course interrupted for an extensive bathing break.When you’ve arrived in Hvar, you can take part in a guided walk through the town with the same name and then stroll to the Španjola fortress. The 20 minute ascent is well worth it, as you will be rewarded with an amazing view of the town and the other islands. Back on board your boat will set course for one of the surrounding bays. This idyllic spot will be the backdrop for the Captain’s Dinner, which is as relaxed as the rest of your holiday.

Hvar port

Day 6: Hvar island – Brač island (by boat),
approx. 25 km bike tour and swimming break

In the morning you will sail around the north-western tip of Hvar to the island’s oldest settlement. Today, Stari Grad has given up this title to Hvar - only the palace is reminiscent of its former glory. Explore the island and the romantic fishing village of Jesla on bike before the boat sets sail for the island of Brač. Croatia’s most famous beach awaits you: Zlatni Rat – the Golden Horn. The light beach protrudes several hundred metres into the Mediterranean. The tip constantly changes its direction, depending on the current. During the winter storms, the beach can be completely washed away, only to reappear a couple of days later. You will have lots of fun swimming, splashing and bathing here.

Beach on Brac island

Day 7: Brač island – Trogir (by boat),
approx. 15 km bike tour, swimming break and city tour

A short, worthwhile cycle tour will let you explore the island of Brač. There will be another stop at the Golden Horn, so you can take a refreshing dip in the Mediterranean. Then you will sail around the southwest coast to a lonely bay, where you will have lunch. Use the time to go on an extensive swimming break, because now it is time for the last crossing on your family cruise in Croatia: You will sail back to Trogir. The museum city with its mighty walls and fortified towers is protected as a UNESCO world heritage site. Within the city walls, buildings from different eras harmonise: churches, residences and palaces, built in Romanticist, Gothic and Renaissance architectural styles stand side by side. Take a peek into the old courtyards and learn lots about the city on a guided tour. You will spend the night in the harbour.

Bike tour on Brac island

Day 8: Individual departure

Unfortunately your family cruise in Croatia ends today. We hope you and your children had an unforgettable time in South Dalmatia and we hope you have a relaxing journey back home.
Disembarkation after breakfast until 09.00 o’clock.
