Sunday Sipan or Slano - Mljet - Korcula
After breakfast we continue our journey towards the island and national park Mljet. Lunch on board. Free time to enjoy the salt lakes in the National Park and enjoy the sun and sea on this peaceful island. In the middle of the large lake, inside the National park, one can visit an old abbey and church, or just use a small boat to roam around the National park. Bicycles can also be hired to cycle around the paths that surround the lakes. We continue to Korcula where we arrive in late afternoon.

Monday Korcula - Vis

As sometimes weather conditions can be very unpredictable, the possibility of our visit will depend on those conditions, however you will be notified of this by the crew. Entrance to the Blue Cave is to be paid on the spot. We continue towards the island of Vis, which was, because of its unique geographical position, a strategic harbour for the navy and closed to the public until recently. Because of this isolation, Vis has a special charm of 'the Mediterranean as it once was' which makes it really interesting to see. Overnight in the town of Vis, situated on the northern side of the island, developed near the remains of the ancient Issa, first urban centre in Croatia. If interested, visit the remains of the Roman thermal place, City museum or simply take a walk enjoying the views of the beautiful villae rusticae situated along the waterfront.
