After exploring Split, a historic 4th Century Roman Town and its palaces, embark on your yacht and make your way over to the island of Brac.

As you cruise to the Kornati archipelago, stop for lunch at Pelegrini to taste its modern meat and fish dishes.

Enjoy an evening snorkeling and exploring the marine life just below the surface of the rocky shoreline.
Navigate to what is the Croatian version of Capri, with a coastline made up of deserted beaches, sea caves and a dense interior made up of olive groves and vines.
