Over the course of a few months leading up to the summer, I had managed to convince a group of 3 friends to string along with me for this dream vacation.
We had previously idly contemplated taking off on a dream vacation together but we had never reached agreement about which destination would prove most enchanting. The stunning beauty of Croatia's Dalmatian coast finally won everyone over, but was the experience to prove equal to our expectations?
The first task was to secure for ourselves a good yacht on which to scout the Dalmatian Island in complete leisure. After checking several listings we settled on Silver Sail, a Split based yacht charter company. We found a 3 cabin, 6 berth motor yacht that was perfectly suited for our needs.
Our itinerary began in the Dalmatian coast city of Split where our flight landed on a sunny Tuesday afternoon. After sampling the city's incredible sights and pulsating nightlife we were ready to begin our island hopping on the back of the yacht, spending most of the Monday around the Pakleni islands. Over the course of the next few days we toured at least 10 different Dalmatian islands including Korcular, Hvar, Lumbarda and Brac.
It is hard to select any one of the experiences as the most stunning but we enjoyed swimming with dolphins, exploring ancient walled towns, sunning on sandy beaches and the most tongue tingling Mediterranean cuisine choices.
