Later the boat will then return to civilisation as it cruises toward Korcula. Along the way lunch will be served and the boat will stop at a peaceful bay to allow cruise participants to go for a swim. Thereafter you will arrive at Korcula, a small charming town, with the same name as the island, which is also sometimes called “Little Dubrovnik”.
