An exciting multi-activity adventure for the whole family that explores the beautiful Croatian coast and islands. Explore the stunning islands and coastline of southern Dalmatia on board a charming boat, with overnights in scenic ports and quiet bays. Each day brings a new island to discover either by bike or on foot or even by raft. There is also the option to remain on board, relax and take a swim or wander the streets of historic harbour towns. In the company of your guide and crew the activities are specifically geared towards the whole family ensuring that the experience is both informative and interactive with the right amount of walking or cycling. Through stories and legends the guide will help to bring to life the country’s cultural and natural treasures whilst also touching on Croatia’s eventful history.
Of course, knowing you could sink into the sea at the end of each day was a big mental help. The sea was delicious!
Everything worked out pretty well. No problems to report. The accommodation - especially Nicolas in Korthi and Irene Studios in Gavrio - was much nicer than I expected.
And I had the trails completely to myself – I saw one other couple walking on one day, but that was it!”

Excellent discounts apply to a third person sharing a triple cabin, with a configuration of a French bed (quite cosy for two people as it is a little smaller than a double) and a single bunk bed above. Discount applies to third and fourth person sharing a quad cabin below deck, with a camp bed for the fourth person. Note that the lower deck cabins by their very nature will be marginally noisier and less ventilated due to their proximity to the engine and working part of the boat.
