This Adventure Sailing holiday isn’t just a sailing trip or adventure package. We designed this holiday for those who love being active outdoors, who admire art and history and appreciate ancient architecture and local tradition. Daily activities are rather short and not too demanding, leaving plenty of time to enjoy the sun while sailing between Croatian renowned islands. Dubrovnik, the Elaphiti shorelines, Mljet, Korcula and Hvar Islands are rich in history and natural variety – cliffs, caves, coves, rocks, beaches and pine forests. We will explore them while sailing on a yacht, sea kayaking, cycling, stand up paddling, swimming, snorkeling and on foot.
Our experienced local guides and skippers will avoid overcrowded destinations ensuring you get the most authentic experience. We will be mooring in quiet places and have the opportunity to dine with local families in their homes and enjoy good food and excellent wine. Our tour will end in Stari Grad on Island of Hvar where from you have good connections with Split. Friendly dolphins or tuna that are often seen in the area often escort our yachts. The sea is blue, clear, warm and friendly.
Accommodation: Over the course of this program, we will travel and stay on the sleek and elegant OLIVIA ADRIATICA Sun Odyssey 54DS (16.75 m) sailboat, which offers an impressive sailing experience with a great dose of comfort. The OLIVIA ADRIATICA is a boat that offers safety and a comfortable stay at sea with great design, solid performance, a high quality of construction, and superior equipment. The boat has 3 double cabins, each with its own toilet and shower, along with a separate cabin for the crew. There are two standard double, and one master double cabin with even more space and comfort. The central salon is large and offers a comfortable space for shared living. The boat is equipped with air conditioning and heating, a TV, WIFI, an electrical generator, and everything you might need while resting and relaxing. The small on-board library offers books to suit everyone’s interests.
Eco Challenge: The Blue Bag is an initiative with the aim of giving the sea what it gives us; purity, beauty, love… If each sailor were to fill just one bag of drifting refuse per year, the sea would say: “THANK YOU”. The Blue Bag isn’t an obligation, instead it is a challenge. As part of the Mediterranean, the Adriatic Sea is considered to be one of the cleanest seas in Europe. Croatia is amongst the top three countries, along with Cyprus and Malta, in the cleanliness of the sea. Still, our sea has been affected with the appearance of refuse that is the result of irresponsible behaviour by sailors, but also by the significant effects of sea currents that travel from the southeast to the northwest, bringing in garbage from the middle of the Mediterranean. That is why we have launched the Blue Bag environmental initiative. When our crews spot PVC garbage on some inaccessible shores, they hop in a kayak or on a SUP board, and collect it in characteristic blue bags. Guests on our boats have more than gladly accepted this initiative as part of the adventure and the high degree of environmental culture we promote.
Meals: Breakfast will be served with a plentiful buffet consisting of several types of cereal, butter, honey, jam, prosciutto, cheese, eggs, yogurt, fruit, juices, coffee, tea, and milk. Some of the lunches will be picnics, which enables us to be flexible with our route. You will be able to buy lunch packs or groceries from local stores, and the boat kitchen is there for you to use. If you are booking the entire boat for your group, we can organize a boat chef to cook for you during the trip with a surcharge.
Gourmet Experience: Along with our adventurous activities, the sun and the sea awaken the most primeval feelings that are hard to resist, so we invite you to let go and enjoy dinner in a hedonistic way with an abundance of a traditional regional offers of food in island restaurants. Meals are organized as a combination of on-board meals and selected restaurants for dinner. In the evening, after we have anchored the night, there are fantastic local restaurants and taverns. They have received excellent feedback from guests in the past for their value for money, and we recommend you try specialties with authentic Mediterranean cuisine.
