Huck Finn’s Adventure Sailing holiday isn’t just a sailing trip or adventure package, we designed this holiday for those who love being active outdoors, who admire art and history and appreciate ancient architecture and local tradition. Daily activities are rather short and not too demanding, leaving plenty of time to enjoy the sun on the deck of your yacht. We will sail 5-6 hours a day welcoming diverse Adriatic shorelines on a gentle breeze.

On this tour we will visit islands of Mljet, Korcula and Hvar – Croatia’s well-known southern islands, as well as smaller Lopud, Kolocep and Sipan Island that belong to the group of Elaphiti Islands. These are some of Croatia’s most beautiful green islands – covered by pine forests with lots of sunshine all rich in history and natural variety – cliffs, caves, coves, rocks and sandy beaches. We will explore them while sailing on a yacht, sea kayaking, cycling, swimming, paddleboarding, snorkeling and on foot.

Our experienced local guides and skippers will avoid overcrowded destinations ensuring you get the most authentic experience. You will have the opportunity to dine at local family run restaurants, enjoy good food and excellent wine. Friendly dolphins or tuna that are often seen in the area often escort our yachts. The sea is blue, clear, warm and friendly.

Sailing Dubrovnik to Sipan Island

Meet our crew by 10:00 at our base in Komolac and get ready for amazing adventure. As we pass under Dubrovnik imposing cable-stayed bridge, we will sail out towards the stunning group of Elaphiti Islands. Our first stop Kolocep Island calls for water activities such as paddleboarding and snorkeling, followed by amazing lunch next to the sandy beach. Evening is spent on Sipan Island, calm and relaxing Luka Sipanska village. The island, which is only 16 square kilometres in size, is home to old summer estates and 34 churches that bear witness to a rich history that peaked during the Dubrovnik Republic era. Enjoy your diner in a cozy seaside restaurant and prepare for a longer day of sailing.

Mljet Island

Today we explore Mljet Island and the national park. Along the way make sure you look out for playful dolphins who will gladly surf along your yacht. Mljet is most forested island in the Adriatic, and the smell of pine, juniper, bay leaf and other wild herbs is simply captivating. This scenic National Park contains two salt lakes, with a Benedictine monastery on the isle of St. Mary. You will cycle in the park and around its lakes, and optionally take a boat to visit the monastery of St. Mary.  Swim in the salty lakes and enjoy the perfect peace and quiet of this island before returning to your yacht. In the afternoon we get our sails up and gently cruise towards Peljesac Peninsula, turquoise Zuljana Bay for dinner and overnight.

Korcula Island

After departing Zuljana we head towards Korcula Island. Korcula has been known since the 6th century BC under the name of Korkyra Melaina when it was as ancient Greek colony – in translation “Black Korcula” describing its dark green pine forests. According to some theories, this island is also known as the hometown of the 13th century explorer and traveller Marco Polo, the first European to present facts about China and other Asian countries. On our adventure we will kayak Korcula coastline and discover narrow streets and artisan stores in the town itself.  In the afternoon look out for skilful windsurfers as we sail across windy Peljesac canal to the quiet bay for dinner and overnight.
