Ah! So this week I am digging into where we went and what we did. SO FUN!! I have really had a hard time getting back to reality. I want boat life back πŸ™ So simple and satisfying. Forget this school and work rubbish! Next week I will talk about provisioning and overall boat living systems.

Alright so these show notes will be a bit shorter than last week’s but basically here is where we went while we were adventuring in Croatia:

Kastela Marina, Mainland

We started off our journey at Kastela Marina on the mainland. This is where we picked up Luna from Croatia Yachting, got checked out, and hit the high seas! We also did most of our provisioning here, but I’ll chat about that next week.

Stari Grad, Hvar Island

I absolutely LOVED Stari Grad and could definitely had done another day there. Unfortunately Mother Nature kept us a bit busy and we moved on. This is also where I realized I had caught COVID. Darn.

Palmizana, Pakleni Islands

This was a cute little stop and very well sheltered. There was a nice swimming beach and anchorage on the other side of the island. Most of the crew went off for a day trip to explore Hvar, while I slept off my COVID.

ACI Marina Korcula, Korcula Island

This was a beautiful marina with excellent facilities and accessibility to the town, shops, restaurants, tours, etc. The crew spent one day going to Dubrovnik and there was also a wine tour. We spend two days here doing some swimming, laundry, shopping and relaxing.

Tri Luka, Korcula Island

This was our first anchorage and a much needed break for doing all the touristy things. We swam, ate, played cards, visited, star gazed, and had a great anchorage sleep πŸ™‚

Vis, Island of Vis

This is a MUST SEE if you are going to Croatia! We loved Vis. It was a beautiful place to anchor, and we also did a military tour (must do) and we rented scooters so we could head over to Komiza and explore where Mama Mia was filed (the famous restaurant scene). Scootering around was lots of fun!

Maslinica – Martinis Marchi Marina, Island of Solta

This was a nice, small, stop. Beautiful marina facilities and cute town with shops. Not too much to explore, but there was a fun tiki bar and beach area that we frequented a couple of times πŸ˜‰

Uvala Tiha, Island of Solta

Here is anchored for another night and had fun watching boats drag anchor and then had a thunderstorm roll through. Was a nice quiet anchorage sleep after the storms were done!

And then we headed back to Kastela to drop off Luna and make our trek back home! When you do your check in be prepared for them to go over every part of the boat! Be sure to take photos or videos before you leave of anything that may be marked or damaged. They may try to put it on you when you bring the boat back!

Have fun adventuring in Croatia!
