Some of our regular guests will still remember the MS Dare, which was one of the most popular ships in our fleet for a few years. Its old owner sold it to the Marasović family from Krilo Jesenice in 2015, and the new owners expressed a wish to return to the Riva fleet with their ship. As a captain, Ivica has sailed all the world’s oceans and gained experience in tourism with his own excursion boat. For the 2016 season, he completely renovated and enlarged the open saloon at the rear, so that 25 people can comfortably find space here. Jerkić is incidentally the nickname of Ivica, who was called “little Jerko” after his father Jerko when he was young. As the Marasović family bought the MS Planka as the family’s second ship at the end of the 2019 season, Ivica will hold the steering of the Planka in hand from 2020, while his son Jerko will take command of the Jerkić. Jerko’s brother Ivan will alternate between Planka and Jerkić during the season as needed.

Trogir – island Brač – island Korčula – island Lastovo – island Vis – island Biševo – island Hvar – island Šolta – island Drvenik Veli – Trogir
Saturday: Trogir – island Brač
Between 12:00 and 2:00 p.m. embarkation in the port of Trogir. If you are traveling to Trogir in your own car, you can drive to our parking lot reception from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the latest. Park your vehicle here and our service team will bring your luggage to the port or on time to the ship. You reach the harbor in about ten minutes on foot (approx. 1,100 m) via the pedestrian bridge. After embarkation, welcome by our tour guide with a welcome drink and getting to know the crew and fellow travelers. After a snack on board, we drop anchor at 3:00 p.m. and head towards Bol on the island of Brač. Here is one of the most beautiful beaches in the entire Mediterranean – “Zlatni Rat” (Golden Horn), which changes its direction constantly with the current of the sea – a real wonder of nature. Of course we anchor in front of the top of this beach, so that you have the opportunity to take a long bath on this famous beach, but exceptionally with swimwear. For passengers arriving later, transfer to Bol and embarkation in the evening. Overnight in the port of Bol.
Sunday: Brač island – Korčula island
Our destination today is the island of Korčula. Early in the morning it is time to get off the boat and after a swim break and lunch on board we will head to the town of Korčula, the main town on the island of the same name, in the early afternoon. Korčula has one of the most beautiful old towns in Dalmatia and is often referred to as “Little Dubrovnik” because of its fortress-like appearance. You have about two hours to discover the birthplace of the famous seafarer and explorer Marco Polo before we continue to a lonely bay. There you have the opportunity to jump into the cool water at your convenience. Dinner on board and overnight.
Monday: Korčula Island – Lastovo Island
Lastovo Island, about three hours by boat from Korčula, has been closed to foreign visitors for decades because it was a military base during the time of the former Yugoslavia. The island has therefore been able to retain its originality and is a true oasis of calm with lush Mediterranean vegetation. The archipelago was declared a nature park a few years ago (admission approx. € 4 per person, payable on site). We will first moor in the Sveti Mihajlo bay near the town of Lastovo, where you have enough time to explore the town of Lastovo, which is just 1,000 meters from the pier. After lunch on board, we head for the deeply cut Velo Lago Bay, where we also spend the night.
Tuesday: Lastovo Island – Vis Island
After a swimming break and lunch we head for the second “forbidden” island of our trip – Vis. Like Lastovo, the island of Vis was closed to foreign visitors until the late 1980s. Wine is now grown where the runway of an Air Force base used to be. The tunnel-like submarine bunkers that you see here are also interesting. Once built as protection against “enemy forces”, today they only serve as protection against storms for fishermen. We spend the night in the port of Vis, the main town on the island, which lies in a deeply cut, protected bay. Vis is a charming town with romantic alleys and cafes. You can end the evening wonderfully in one of the many rustic taverns.
Wednesday: Vis Island – Biševo Island & Blue Grotto – Hvar Island
The island of Biševo with the famous “Blue Grotto” (Modra Špilja) is only a few nautical miles away from Vis. Around noon, the sun’s rays, which enter the grotto through an undersea opening, are reflected by the white sea floor and bathe the grotto in blue light. However, this unique spectacle can only be observed when the sea is calm. The trip to the grotto takes place in small boats, admission including boat trip approx. € 10 (July / August € 14) per person, payable on site. After visiting the Blue Grotto, we set course for the island of Hvar. We spend the night at one of the numerous lonely bays just before Stari Grad. These bays captivate with their turquoise-green colors, framed by the lush green of the pine forests all around. A real paradise for naturists.
Thursday: Hvar Island – Šolta Island
Before breakfast you can take the opportunity to enjoy a morning refreshment bath to start the day in good shape. Then it goes to nearby Stari Grad, the oldest settlement on the island of Hvar. Stari Grad (translated: old town) was once the main town on the island, and well-preserved sights such as the Hektorović Palace still testify to the splendor of times long past. However, Stari Grad was able to maintain its role as the center of the island’s winegrowing. You have about two hours to explore the city before heading to the island of Šolta. Šolta is one of the smaller Dalmatian islands and is known to connoisseurs for its first-class, dark olive oil. We anchor in one of the uninhabited bays on the island of Šolta, where we also spend the night.
Friday: Island of Šolta – Island of Drvenik Veli – Trogir
After breakfast we raise the anchor again and head for the last island of our trip – Drvenik Veli. We spend our last swim break of this trip in a cove on the islet before returning to Trogir. Even arriving in Trogir late Friday afternoon is a special experience. Then not only will the motor sailers and motor yachts return to Trogir, but also countless chartered sailing yachts and catamarans. When they all pass the “Kamerlengo” fortress tower, there are so many unique photo opportunities. After landing, let yourself be captured by the unique atmosphere in the alleys of the old town, which is not without reason called the “Museum City” and is protected by UNESCO. Guided tour of the old town, then dinner on board and overnight.
