Sail through the Peljesac Channel, past Majsan Island, where pre-historical ruins still stand, and around the island of Vrnik, famous for its stone quarry from which magnificent white limestone is extracted.
At Orebic, a picturesque town situated on the south-western portion of the peninsula, a short stop will be made for you to disembark and stretch your legs.
Your cruise will continue onto the fishermen's town of Racisce, built around a small bay surrounded by hills and sandy vineyards. Enjoy time at leisure to explore the area or take a dip in the refreshing Adriatic Sea.
Refreshments of juice and cookies will be served in a local outdoor hotel cafe whilst you relax and take in the charming surroundings of this traditional community. Your return journey will sail by many of the stunning islands, most of which are still uninhabited.
For any excursion involving water, guests are reminded to exercise particular care. Alcohol and eating a full meal should be avoided before swimming. If buoyancy aids are provided for an activity they must be worn at all times. You should bear in mind that the sea is unpredictable. Lifeguards are unlikely to be present and there may not be a flag system to indicate whether or not it is safe to go in the water. In addition, beach activities may not be supervised or accompanied and so you should take care to satisfy yourself as to the safety of the beach and/or the sea at the time of your excursion.
Please exercise caution when entering the sea as the seabed and aquatic environment is capable of springing surprises and we have not inspected the beach or seabed for its safety. Children must be supervised by you at all times near water. All activities on the beach, water and in the sea are undertaken at your own risk. You’ll need to take swimwear, a towel, sunscreen and flat shoes that can be worn in the water.
