Cruise from Split to Split with Arca
The Croatian coastline north of Split has so much to offer, however, surprisingly, it often goes overlooked. The good news is: North Dalmatia is way less crowded than the south, which brings more opportunities to explore the main highlights without hords of tourists. Listen to the famous Sea Organ in the 3,000-year-old city of Zadar, stroll along the picturesque seafront of Šibenik, enjoy multiple stops for swimming and delicious meals on board.
You will be transferred from Split’s airport or your Split hotel to harbour, where embarkation begins at 13:00h. Get settled in your cabin before attending a Welcome reception followed by dinner this evening.
Depart from Split early in the morning towards Šibenik. After lunch disembark in Šibenik and take the bus to visit Krka National Park. It’s magnificent waterfalls, including the famous waterfall Skradinski Buk, are one of Croatia’s most famous sights. After the sightseeing tour, we will return to Šibenik, a city of exceptional history and rich cultural heritage. Set out on a walking tour of Šibenik historical center and visit one of the most beautiful Renaissance Cathedrals of the Adriatic.
Leaving Šibenik early in the morning we set sail for Galešnjak, a typical small Dalmatian island, where you can enjoy a swim stop in one of secluded bays.

On a walking tour visit the old town with the picturesque little streets and the first public theatre in Europe. We will continue towards the island of Vis once a strategic naval Yugoslav base and closed to the public. Due to this isolation, Vis has a special charm – “the Mediterranean as it once was” making it interesting to visit.

Tonight, enjoy Captain’s dinner on board.
