Cruise from Opatija to Opatija with Black Swan
Departure at 14h with lunch on board. Late arrivals can join in Krk town, on the largest Croatian island of same name.

Krk has diverse villages of various sizes, stunning promenades, dramatic rock faces with tiny islands and hundreds of hidden bays and beaches. There's a buzz along the waterfront of Krk Town. Relax and enjoy many bars or restaurants. Afternoon wine tasting in Vrbnik village with bus transfer from Krk.
After breakfast, you cruise towards Rab island known as the “island of love”. On arrival, there are the imposing stone walls and you'll see Romanesque church towers, churches, palaces, stone streets and ancient facades. Many streets and squares are like open-air galleries, as artists work outside. Do not miss and try the famous “Rapska torta“ cake (the receipe is secret). If weather permits, walk up to Kamenjak hill and watch the magnificent sunset.
Morning cruise from Rab towards Zadar, travelling by Pag island with it's unusual moonlike landscape. You stop to swim on tiny MAUN island. After arrival in Zadar enjoy guided tour. The city is today the centre of the region and was the metropolis of Dalmatia region for many centuries. The rich cultural heritage is visible at every turn: The Roman forum which dates to the 1st century AD, the church of St. Donatus dating to the 9th century AD - the most famous Medieval basilica and the symbol of the city. The imposing and mighty city walls with representative Port and Land gates are from the 16th century AD, and there are numerous palaces and villas of former noble families. Great restaurants line part of the waterfront and the centre of town. Famous, contemporary creations are the Zadar Sea Organ, one of a kind in the world (listen to the sound) and “The Greeting to the Sun” light installation.
Today you visit the region of the famous National Park Kornati – rich in fish and cultural and historic remains. Historic remains of old Ilyrian fortress, Roman villas, old Christian church of St. Mary and medieval fortresses and settlements add to the value of these islands. Kornati consists of 140 islands and reefs. Inlets of some islands descend steeply into the sea, a hundred meters deep in places, and dramatically razor sharp. It is truly something remarkable to see. Possibility to walk to the white cliffs vertically falling down 90 m into the sea and rising up to 200 m over the sea as well as the salt Lake “Mir”. Overnight in Telašćica Bay on Dugi Otok
After breakfast and a morning swim, you cruise towards Lošinj known as “sunshine island” with an abundance of pines, wild flowers and herbs. Losinj is one of the most popular islands on the northern Adriatic waters for its hidden coves and cool Mediterranean vibe. On arrival to Mali Lošinj, enjoy walking tour followed by visit to Museum of Apoxyomenos. The museum is dedicated to the ancient bronze statue of an athlete found in the sea near the island. Walk up to the Lošinj Aromati Garden or to the smaller town of Veli Lošinj both easy to reach and explore on foot.
You leave for Cres island after our morning swim. Possible swim stop on island Susak, if weather permits. This unspoiled island is long and narrow island with olive groves, vineyards, forests of oak, beech and remarkable stone walls.
