What to Expect

Tradition and charm

Sretan is a beloved part of the Horizon Sail family. Perfect for the more budget-conscious traveler, Sretan is one of the traditional Croatian ships which has been sailing the Adriatic for decades! The rooms are spacious, the food is fantastic, and the open sundeck has plenty of room to chill out and work on that holiday tan.

All of that, whilst boasting the traditional aesthetic of a wooden sailing ship. There are two bars on board, including a sun-deck bar. All cabins are twin cabins with linen and bath towels provided, and with shared bathrooms on deck. Our dedicated crew works hard to make sure you have an unforgettable week.




Reverse your trip and start in Dubrovnik



After meeting your Trip Manager and fellow travelers, we set sail for the Elaphiti Islands, a small archipelago famous for its pristine scenery and secluded beaches. Enjoy lunch with new friends as we sail, before anchoring nearby Priježba Beach for 360 views of the Adriatic sea - enjoy the first of many swims stops during the week! The entire population of the thirteen Elaphiti islands is less than a thousand people. Our port for the evening is Šipan, the largest of these islands. Tonight we get to know each other over an included onboard barbecue of local grilled meats and salads and raise a toast as the sun sets on our first day together.

Included: Lunch, BBQ dinner




After a short morning sail, we arrive at anchor off the island of Mljet and get used to your morning ritual of diving into that crystal blue water. We enjoy lunch on board before heading to the port of Pomena and to the stunning Mljet National Park. Here your entrance to the park is included, and we spend a leisurely afternoon exploring the two saltwater lakes surrounded by lush pine forest. You have the option to cycle, kayak, or even head to the small island Monastery of St Mary. Head to one of the local eateries tonight, and later, toast another sensational sunset from the top deck.

Included: Breakfast, lunch, entrance to Mljet National Park




Today we continue north to the island of Kor?ula, the birthplace of the famous explorer Marco Polo. Enjoy a leisurely lunch on board and plenty of time to swim in one of the beautiful bays near to Kor?ula town. After an orientation of the Old Town, spend the rest of the afternoon exploring the markets and jewelry stores, or enjoy a coffee by the water with stunning views across to the mountains of the Pelješac Peninsula. Kor?ula is famous for wine, and here is the perfect place to learn a little about some of the famous Croatian grapes over a wine tasting. Finishing the day with a sunset cocktail up high in part of the town’s medieval fortifications is simply stunning.

Included: Breakfast, lunch




This morning we sail along the coast of Hvar island and enjoy the special views of secluded bays, small hillside wineries, and rocky cliffs. Enjoy a beautiful swim stop at anchor off the Pakleni Islands, before a water taxi picks us up and takes us to explore the well-retained and prestigious Hvar town. This old Venetian town was once an important military stronghold. This afternoon you have the opportunity to visit the medieval Španjola Fortress, which has watched over the town since the 13th century and enjoy the postcard views of the town and surrounding islands. Enjoy a pre-dinner cocktail with a view at one of Hvar’s many waterfront bars, and tonight, indulge in some of Croatia’s best nightlife as this buzzing town comes alive.

Included: Breakfast, lunch, water taxi to Hvar




Today we sail around the north of the island of Hvar, to our next stop at Jelsa. We will enjoy a swim and lunch at anchor, before cruising to our port for the night. This bustling town was once a significant center for shipbuilding and trade, and from here the best wines, olive oils, and dried fish from Hvar would make their way around Europe. Surrounded by lush and fertile forests and fields, Jelsa is today still one of the best places to try truly fantastic local produce. This evening we head to a winery and organic farm on the UNESCO World Heritage Listed Stari Grad Plain. Here we enjoy an included olive oil and wine tasting, so you can truly appreciate what the island of Hvar has to offer. Back in town, spend a relaxing evening at one of the many excellent restaurants or bars.

Included: Breakfast, lunch, wine and olive oil tasting




This morning we set sail to the coast of Bra?, stopping for a morning swim off the famous Zlatni Rat or ‘Golden Horn’. One of the most recognizable beaches on the Dalmatian Coastline, Zlatni Rat pokes out like a tongue of pebbles into the sea, continuously changing shape due to the waves, wind and sea currents. We spend the afternoon sailing around Bra? to the town of Pu?iš?a, with plenty of time to explore our port for the night. Set at the end of a beautiful, natural bay, Pu?iš?a was once voted one of Europe’s Prettiest Towns! Pu?iš?a boasts some of the purest and whitest stone in Europe. As well as being used for most of the local buildings, this famous stone was also used to build Diocletian’s Palace in Split, and the White House in Washington DC! Tonight you have the option to join in the Captain’s Dinner on board.

Included: Breakfast, lunch




We sail back to the mainland today, and after our final dip in the Adriatic, arrive at the Port of Split. Beginning life as a palace for the Roman Emperor Diocletian, these days Split is Croatia’s second-largest city, and is where the locals live, work and play. Within the ancient palace walls, there is a treasure trove of restaurants, bars, and shops to be explored. Maybe try some local seafood for dinner at one of the city’s excellent waterfront eateries. Tonight is our final night together, and we will hit the town for a final drink.

Included: Breakfast, lunch




Boat check-out is after breakfast this morning at 9 am. Your Trip Manager will be on hand to offer assistance with any onward transport.

Included: Breakfast
