Starting out in Split, you will follow the scenic Dalmatian coast southward and be on the lookout for hidden bays to grab a swim in the turquoise waters of the Adriatic. Passing Omiš, you can opt for a zipline ride, rafting, or any other adrenaline-inducing activities in the canyon of the Cetina River.
As the day nears its end, you will enter Makarska Riviera and sail into the port of Makarska, a coastal town below the Biokovo mountain range. Lively and perfect for families, you will surely find something interesting to do among the town’s shops, restaurants, parks, and more.
Today’s destination is the island of Mljet, famous for its Mljet National Park, which includes several picturesque saltwater lakes. Passing the Pelješac Peninsula on the way, you will have a perfect option to stop for an early morning swim in one of its secluded coves.
The highlight of the day will be the visit to the Mljet National Park, which you can explore on foot or by bike. One of the lakes even features a tiny island of St. Mary’s in its middle. You can settle in one of the nearby ports for the night.
If you are in Croatia, Dubrovnik is a must-visit. Dubbed the “Pearl of the Adriatic,” Dubrovnik is one of the country’s highlights with its preserved Old Town, city walls, and unique atmosphere, which also convinced the creators of the Game of Thrones to use it as one of their main filming locations.
You can always add a layer of physical activity to your visit by taking a hike (or a cable car) up the Srđ mountain and enjoying the views of the city and Lokrum Island.
Continuing your journey by slowly turning back towards Split, your sails can take you to Šipan Island, the largest Elaphiti Island. Your family can enjoy its peaceful atmosphere and scenic beaches while having an off day indulging in the joys of the Adriatic Sea. Or you can spice it up with beachside activities like volleyball, jet-ski, and more.
You will continue your exploration of the Croatian archipelago on Korčula Island, the birthplace of the famous explorer Marco Polo. His house of birth in the town of Korčula is open for visits, and you can include it in your activity plans for the day.
Similarly to Dubrovnik, Korčula traces its history back to the medieval ages, apparent in its ancient walls and bastions. But most of all, the town radiates that authentic ambiance of traditional Croatian seaside settlements, making you want to spend more than just a night there.
En route to Hvar, you can make your day’s first stop at the Paklinski islands and start the day with a morning swim on one of the secluded beaches. As the longest Croatian island, Hvar is too vast to explore in one go, but the town of Hvar is the perfect starting point.
Besides having a lively seafront with many restaurants and bars, the town offers numerous family-interesting locations, including the Španjola fortress on the hill above. Or you can opt for exploring the island on bikes, a very suitable activity given the location.
Brač Island is home to one of the most famous beaches in Europe, the Golden Horn beach (Zlatni rat in Croatian). Stretching like a horn out in the sea, it changes shape depending on wind direction. Porting in the town of Bol, you will find several fun things to do in its immediate vicinity — from surfing to kiting and other water activities. Its marina is also one of the oldest in Croatia and is just a special place to be at.
By evening, you can return to Split for the final night before you have to disembark.
After leaving your gulet, you can take the rest of the day to explore Split, Croatia’s second-largest city. Known as the birthplace of the famous Roman emperor Diocletian, you can still visit Diocletian’s palace, where he spent the final days of his life. If you want, we can organize different activities for you, whether sporty or city tours.

How would you want to spend your summer holidays borne by the waves, watching seagulls fly above your head and uncovering the hidden coves of Croatia’s diverse coast in the company of your closest?
Gulet Elena has recently been renovated and adapted for family cruises, with four double-bed cabins accommodating twice as many parents and five cabins with bunk beds for children.
The ship’s captain and crew work like a well-oiled machine. They are ready to help you discover the best locations along the Adriatic coast. They will take care of your every need, introduce you to Croatia’s rich culture, and ensure the trip is safe and enjoyable for the entire group.
Chartering a gulet gives you all the freedom you need during holidays. While we are ready to provide recommendations and plan your customized itinerary, the decisions on where you want to take Elena will be entirely up to you.
Whether you want active holidays or just a lowkey time off, the gulet offers it all — a spacious sun deck, cozy cabins, storage space for bikes, and several water activities for children.
We will work out all the details with the captain and take care of the logistics, so you can focus on having the time of your life in Croatia. Activity bookings, restaurant recommendations, and so on — you can leave it all to us!
Check out one of the itineraries we prepared for you and see whether it would fit your preferences. If not, contact us, and we will work together to curate your dream family vacation in Croatia!
We will provide a local guide to accompany you on your daily activities to ensure you get the optimal experience of Croatia. Our guides all regularly work with children and know their way around them. Depending on your itinerary, you will also have private transportation available. We adapt the tour based on your family type, even providing car seats if you need them.
If you prefer to remain the master of your time, our self-guided holidays offer just that. We provide you with a rough plan and some ideas, but in the end, you decide what your family holidays will look like as you go. You will take yourself around Croatia, but we can arrange a car rental or a campervan if you wish. We also take care of all accommodations and remain available for support during your visit.
You can also receive the best of both options and enjoy the freedom of self-guided holidays while only getting a guide on certain days to show you around. During your free time, we can still organize activities for you and give you some cues on how to spend it. Otherwise, the time will be entirely yours and your family’s.
For families who wish to meet other families with kids and who don’t want to stress about trip planning and would maybe like to enjoy some time on their own as well. You will be travelling with our tour leader in a small group in comfortable transportation with accommodation, entrance fees and a tour leader to look after you. For guaranteed tour departures we have a minimum of 2 families.
