8 day escorted tour

This Multi-Adventure cruise in South Dalmatia is particularly well-suited for families, couples or individuals seeking a variety of sports and activities while exporing the beautiful coastline and islands of Croatia.
Spend a week on our 4 star motor vessel that takes you from island to island, sparing you the nuisance of packing suitcases and searching for accommodation. Some nights are spent in port, others in quiet bays. Decide each day anew whether you would like to go on a bike trip or on a hiking tour, go rafting or rather stroll leisurely through the unique small harbor towns of the Adriatic – or simply spend the day relaxing on board. This is indeed a pleasant way of exploring southern Dalmatia, possibly Croatia’s most attractive landscape.
With you on board is a well-informed tour guide who can always point out various possibilities of creating an active or a relaxed holiday. Through stories and legends and through the country’s cultural treasures – most of which are protected by UNESCO’s World Heritage program – you will get in touch with Croatia’s eventful history.

The ship, 100 ft./31 m long and 26 ft./8 m wide, meets the highest expectations in regard to comfort, elegance and style, combining romantic seafaring with modernity and functionalism.
