Spend 15 glorious days exploring the Dalmatian Coast on a cruise from Split to Dubrovnik. With a mix of picture-perfect shorelines, ancient cities teeming with history and European charm, Croatia is truly a Balkan beauty. This tour blends well-known highlights like Zadar's promenade with quiet charms like a hearty lunch in the Opuzen wetlands and the simple pleasure of daily swim stops in the Adriatic - the perfect way to see guidebook favourites and little-known treasures. Tonnes of ports, pretty coastal towns and clear waters make the Adriatic Coast is the perfect destination to explore on an Adventure Cruising tour.
Day 1: Split
Welcome to Split, perhaps the most famous and beloved of all Croatia's coastal cities. Don't worry if you don't have a chance to see much today – we'll be back. Board the Peregrine Dalmatian at 5 pm and meet your fellow travellers for a welcome meeting and drink. In the evening, enjoy dinner on board and get to know your companions and leader a little better.
Day 2: Sibenik
Sail to Sibenik, take a short orientation walk with your leader, then a transfer to a nearby village. Here you are treated to a traditional Dalmatian lunch in an agriturismo. This particular spot is famous for its smoked ham, known in the to the locals as prsut. You visit the farm, as well as and one of the finest wineries in Croatia for a wine tasting before returning to Sibenik in early evening. Note that these activities will take place in smaller groups, so the order of lunch and the winery visit may be vice versa.
Day 3: Zadar
Travel to Zadar – the oldest continuously inhabited city in Croatia – and take a walking tour with a local guide. This includes admittance to St Donatus Church, an imposing ninth-century building still used for musical performances. Later in the afternoon, head to the Sea Organ, which generates music via waves using tubes placed beneath a set of broad marble stairs. As darkness falls, enjoy a glass of sparkling wine at nearby Greeting to the Sun, an in-ground monument consisting of 300 multi-layered glass plates in a 22-metre (72 foot) circle that produces a stunning show of light after dark. It works in tandem with the Sea Organ – one communicates with light, the other with sound.
Day 4: Plitvice Lakes National Park
Transfer by coach to Plitvice National Park, where a leisurely hike with your leader is a lovely way to take in all the natural beauty. While you can't swim in these lakes, the experience of nature is a profound one, with waterfalls and butterflies piercing the ambience of the lush green forest, providing many a photo opportunity. Return to Zadar in the afternoon and spend the night at port, enjoying dinner on board.
Day 5: Kornati National Park
Sail to Kornati National Park, a nautical wonderland made up of 89 islands. Explore the bays and islands using the on-board kayaks, take a dip in clear waters, or sit back and take in the endless blue-green vistas with a drink in hand. Stay overnight in Telascica, a bay on Dugi Otok island.
Day 6: Trogir
Set sail early to historic Trogir. Enjoy breakfast on board and a swim stop en route. On arrival, get acquainted with the beautiful town on a leader-led orientation walk. Visit the Cathedral of St Lawrence, one of Croatia's finest architectural pieces, and then the 15th-century Kamerlengo fortress. Sit down to some lunch on board the ship before sailing to Primosten. Enjoy a free evening in this picturesque town. Maybe spend time tasting some of the output of the region’s famous vineyards.
Day 7: Split
After breakfast on board, stop at Ciovo Island for a swim (if weather and time permits) before sailing back to Split. Take a guided walking tour on arrival. Located in the heart of this Mediterranean paradise is Diocletian’s Palace – erected in the fourth century, this white-walled fortress is a city within a city. In the evening, sit down to a captain's dinner on board.
Day 8: Split
Your day is as clear as the waters of the Adriatic Sea, so spend your time as you wish in gorgeous Split. Maybe take a relaxing stroll along the palm-lined Riva Harbour. This evening enjoy dinner on board the vessel.
Day 9: Krka National Park
After a leisurely breakfast on board, you may wish to join the new travellers on another guided tour of Split. Or perhaps strike out on your own and lunch at your leisure in one of the Old Town's lovely al fresco eateries. In the afternoon, take a private bus transfer to Krka National Park. Board a small boat to explore this stunning environment. Witness the park's many waterfalls, many of which feature multi-tiered falls gushing from verdant forest. You may wish to stop for a dip or two in the clear, crisp waters. Return by bus to Split and enjoy dinner on board the ship.
Day 10: Hvar
Set sail for the island of Hvar, enjoying breakfast on board. Stop to swim at a secluded beach off the coast and continue to Stari Grad – one of Europe's oldest towns and one of Hvar's prettiest. Enjoy lunch with an incredible views of the historic town from the deck. Disembark and hop on a bus to explore Hvar and discover why it is sometimes called the 'Queen of the Dalmatian Islands'. Visit a local honey farm and taste some of this sweet specialty before taking a stroll through vibrant purple lavender fields. Continue to Hvar Town and explore this small but glamorous city on a leader-guided walk before returning to the comparatively quiet Stari Grad for the evening.
Day 11: Opuzen
Depart early for Opuzen, enjoying breakfast on board and a mid-morning swim stop in turquoise waters. Set sail up the River Neretva, taking in the sight of the steep cliffs that rise on either side of the fjord and lunching while you go. On arrival, hop in a small wooden boat for a leisurely cruise through the surrounding wetlands, enjoying some local snacks and music while you glide through the water. Alight at a beautiful local restaurant that looks over the water and savour the rich flavours of Peka lamb and other local dishes. Spend the evening in Opuzen as you wish. Perhaps venture out to one of the friendly bars around the town square to meet the locals over a beer or two.
Day 12: Mostar – Trpanj
Make an early start this morning and transfer to Mostar in Bosnia and Herzegovina by minibus. Take a guided walk through the charming town, visiting a workshop specialising in traditional coffee sets and copper wall carvings. Enjoy some free time to explore the town and snap some photos of the iconic arched bridge of Stari Most. Return to the ship in the early afternoon and set sail for Trpanj. Alight and transfer to the Matusko Winery for a tour of the evergreen vineyard and a wine tasting. This evening enjoy a barbecue on the deck of the vessel.
Day 13: Korcula
Depart for Korcula, enjoying breakfast on board and a mid-morning swim stop in clear waters off the coast of Loviste. Once in Korcula, get acquainted with the idyllic streets during a guided walk and then explore at your own pace. Perhaps continue your stroll through the narrow alleyways of the marvellously-preserved Old Town or run your hands over the rough-hewn walls and towers that were built to protect Korcula in the 13th and 14th century. Ask your leader for dinner recommendations, and don’t forget to sample some of the famous local white wines.
Day 14: Dubrovnik
Leave early this morning and cruise to Dubrovnik, stopping mid-morning for a swim near the island of Jakljan. Take your lunch on board before arriving in the early afternoon. Dubrovnik features the terracotta rooves, ancient cliff-built walls and crystal coasts that most people associate with the Dalmatian Coast. Board a local bus (accompanied by your leader) to the Old City, where you can spend the afternoon exploring independently. Return to the ship in the evening and enjoy a four-course dinner with the captain and your travelling companions.
Day 15: Disembark in Dubrovnik
Your Adventure Cruising tour along the Dalmatian Coast ends after breakfast. Should you require a transfer to Dubrovnik Airport, please enquire with your travel consultant prior to departure or your leader during your trip.

Health and Safety Protocols for Intrepid Tours
Protection against COVID-19 as well as other transmissible diseases requires enhanced protocols in hygiene and sanitation. We will put in place additional measures, in line with government health advice and with global health authorities (including the WHO and CDC) to ensure that we maintain the highest standards of cleanliness and hygiene.
Handwashing is one of the most important safety measures to prevent the spread of disease. Intrepid will actively reinforce its importance by:
- Implementing a handwashing policy that dictates when, how often and for how long all staff, leaders and crew must wash their hands on-trip.
- Promote the importance of hand hygiene to customers through signage and online customer material.
- Contract suppliers that have hand hygiene protocols in place
- Contract suppliers that provide hand sanitizer in public places (where applicable)
- Educate staff, leaders, crew and suppliers on the importance of hand hygiene via training.
Practicing good respiratory hygiene prevents the spread of disease by reducing the number of droplets in the air when you sneeze or cough. Intrepid will:
- Actively reinforce its importance to customers through signage and online customer material.
- Educate staff, leaders, crew and suppliers on the importance of respiratory hygiene via training.
- Contract suppliers who have respiratory hygiene protocols in place.
In addition, in areas with high community transmission and/or places that are difficult to maintain physical distancing, we recommend the the following at-risk people also wear them. Intrepid follows the advice of the World Health Organisation (WHO) that masks should only be used as part of a comprehensive prevention strategy and that the use of a mask alone is not sufficient to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Physical distancing, hand hygiene and respiratory hygiene must also form part of the strategy.
On our trips, regardless of destination, the following people must wear medical/surgical masks:
- Anyone who develops symptoms of COVID-19 regardless of whether or not they have been tested yet.
- People caring for people with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 cases (outside of hospitals/clinics).
In addition, in areas with high community transmission and/or places that are difficult to maintain physical distancing, we recommend the the following at-risk people also wear them.
- People over 60
- People with underlying health conditions
- Provide medical/surgical masks as part of the First Aid Kits carried by leaders.
- Educate leaders, crew, staff and customers on the correct method to wear, handle and dispose of a mask.
- Require all customers, leaders and staff to comply with any local regulations or requirements that require the use of a mask in public or in certain places
Intrepid follows the advice of the World Health Organisation (WHO) that it is not necessary for the public to wear fabric masks generally.
However in certain circumstances, in places where community transmission of COVID-19 is high and/or physical distancing is not possible (e.g. on public transport, in shops or in other confined environments) then a fabric mask can be a useful barrier to prevent the spread of virus.
Fabric masks be purchased commercially or handmade, and are generally not standardised like medical masks. Fabric masks should:
- Cover the nose, mouth, and chin
- Be secured with elastic loops or ties
- Include multiple layers
- Be washable and reusable.
Protection against COVID-19 as well as other transmissible diseases requires enhanced sanitation processes. Intrepid will take the following measures:
- Require all suppliers to detail their cleaning and sanitation protocols
- Audit/monitor all suppliers on their cleanliness and sanitation.
- All cleaning and disinfecting products must be approved by health authorities (e.g. WHO).
- All rooms must be thoroughly cleaned between guests with all high touch surfaces in shared areas regularly cleaned and disinfected.
- Hand sanitizer should be available in public areas.
- There must be a process in place for customers to escalate any concerns regarding hygiene or sanitation.
- Staff must be trained and able to answer questions regarding safety protocols in place.
- All tents must be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected between use.
- If staying at a campground, ensure all bathrooms are well stocked with hand soap and paper towels. If the area is remote, with limited facilities and/or minimal staffing, then customers should be informed to bring their own hygiene equipment.
- All mini buses, transfers, charters, overland trucks must be thoroughly cleaned between guests with all high touch surfaces in shared areas regularly cleaned and disinfected.
- Hand sanitizer should be made available
- Close top bins with bin liners should be available on board and disposed of at every stop
- Must be thoroughly cleaned at the end of each day
- Tables and chairs must be disinfected after each guest use
- Avoid buffets where possible. If buffets are used, prevent customers from handling food and operating machines (e.g. self-serve coffee stations)
- Either disinfect shared use objects (e.g. table salt) between guest use. Where possible, Intrepid will try to source safe alternatives to single serve packaging.
- Staff must be trained and able to answer questions regarding safety protocols in place.
- Preferred: Provide hand sanitizer to guests at the door before entry
- All equipment must be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected between guest us
- Staff must be trained and able to answer questions regarding safety protocols in place.
Limiting the number of surfaces touched by large numbers of people helps prevent the spread of disease. Therefore, it is important to proactively move towards contactless or low touch solutions for travel. Intrepid will:
- Prioritise contactless/low touch as a key feature when sourcing new tech or solutions.
- Remove any paperwork required on the ground (e.g. signing forms, feedback cards)
- If details must be entered using a shared device (e.g. insurance details), then it must be disinfected between each customer. Preference is to move entirely to digital solutions.
- Accommodation should provide online check in (no paperwork)
- Contactless keys (e.g. QR codes)
- Contactless tech (e.g. lights)
- Online ticketing for attractions and transport
- Online payment
Physical distancing is important in the preventing the spread of COVID-19 as it can be transmitted via droplets sprayed when coughing, sneezing, singing, yelling etc…
Intrepid will take the following measures:
- Require all suppliers to detail their physical distancing protocols
- Follow local regulation and advice on the need for physical distancing.
We will continue to offer this as an option. Single supplements are available for single travellers who do not wish to share a room. We will work closely with accommodation suppliers to ensure increased availability of single rooms.
- Consider whether it is appropriate to offer single tents for solo travellers as customers will be much closer together then in a traditional room.
- Consider whether staggering meal times may reduce the number of people sharing a dining tent.
Intrepid will consider the following factors when designing or amending transport options on trips.
- Local laws or requirements regarding physical distancing on transport
- Hygiene protocols of the transport provider
- Level of active community transmission in the destination
- Using designated seating on transport. Customers have assigned seats throughout the trip.
- If trip is longer than 15 minutes and air conditioning is available, it must be set to external airflow rather than to recirculation or windows should be opened for the duration of the trip.
- Designing or amending itineraries to reduce the duration of travel.
- Increasing the size of the vehicle, using multiple vehicles.
- Educate all leaders, crew, staff and customers to maintain a 1.5m distance wherever practical in public (e.g. queueing at a museum).
- Proactively design product to avoid crowds by visiting attractions at off-peak times.
- Proactively design product to avoid crowds on public transport or at airports where practical.
- Follow local regulations on table spacing and guest seating in restaurants. Wherever possible, try to ensure groups are sitting at their own table without strangers in restaurants.
- Proactively design product that focuses on experiences that assist with physical distancing (e.g. picnics over crowded marketplaces) if relevant for that destination.
Screening for COVID-19 helps isolate anyone with COVID-19 symptoms and stops the spread of disease. It is likely to become more common for future travellers.
Pre-Departure (Brand Material)
Customers should be informed as part of ‘Essential Trip Information (ETIs) or other similar trip notes if their trip is likely to include any of the following:
- Testing for COVID-19 before being able to pass through immigration and/or board planes.
- Negative test results to be uploaded for visa purposes.
- Thermal temperature checks in airports, train or bus stations, major hotels or attractions.
Pre-departure, all customers are required to fill out an online questionnaire (“self- declaration/assessment” form) to identify any high-risk customers before travel.
Extra qualifiers will be included to address customers with symptoms that can be contributed to pre-existing conditions (e.g. breathlessness to asthma).
Customers answering YES to any question should be removed from the departure and appropriate arrangements made.
Intrepid will not require a negative COVID-19 test as proof of health from customers or leaders at this stage unless it is required by local law or regulations.
This is partially due to the lack of availability of testing for people with no symptoms in many parts of the world and may change in due course.
- Ask customers, leaders, crew and staff to monitor their own health
- Display appropriate signage on COVID-19 symptoms
- Educate leaders, crew and staff on how to identify COVID-19 symptoms
- Describe COVID-19 symptoms in group meetings
If customers, leaders or crew show symptoms of COVID-19 and are either unable to or unwilling to be tested, Intrepid reserves the right to remove them from our trips to prevent any risk to others.
Flexible Booking Conditions
Customers will be supported by flexible booking conditions to stay home if unwell or displaying symptoms
Flexible Work Conditions
Intrepid will support leaders and crew to stay home rather than lead a trip if they are unwell or displaying symptoms. Schedules will need to be created with back up availability of leaders/crew.
Data Collection & Health Tracking
Intrepid will assist government health departments in tracking and tracing any customers, staff, leaders, crew or suppliers at risk of contracting COVID-19 via exposure to a known case and/or outbreak by providing relevant details in line with privacy laws and regulations.
COVID Tracking apps
Intrepid strongly recommends that customers and staff download COVID tracking apps (e.g. COVIDSafe in Australia, StayHomeSafe in Hong Kong) to assist in reducing the spread of disease within their communities.
