Explore Croatia & the Dalmatian coast A taste of island life

In the east of Europe, Croatia’s long coastline stretches along the Adriatic Sea, encompassing thousands of islands which dot the remarkably clear azure waters. Having long served as an enticing holiday destination, it’s not hard to see what it is that attracts so many each year. From its sun-kissed pristine landscapes and fortified towns, to the outdoor café culture, by luxury yacht is the only way to explore the Dalmatian coast.

Explore independently You’ll have plenty of time to explore independently and, because we are able to dock centrally, the sights, sounds and tastes of the region will be at your fingertips. From local restaurants serving traditional cuisine, to historic landmarks, you’ll enjoy the true Mediterranean way of life.

Unsurprisingly, the surrounding sea provides much in the way of fresh seafood, a firm favourite with the locals, who use such ingredients to create dishes with heavy influences from Italian, Turkish and Hungarian cuisine. With a rich history, dating as far back as the 7th century, each picturesque island boasts its own ancient sites which have been lovingly taken care of and are now tourist hotspots.

We are required to advise you of the actual carrier(s) (or, if the actual carrier(s) is not known, the likely carrier(s)) that will operate your flight(s) at the time of booking. Where we are only able to inform you of the likely carrier(s) at the time of booking, we shall inform you of the identity of the actual carrier(s) as soon as we become aware of this. Any change to the operating carrier(s) after your booking has been confirmed will be notified to you as soon as possible. If the carrier becomes subject to an operating ban as above as a result of which we/the carrier are unable to offer you a suitable alternative the provisions of clause 9 Changes and cancellation by us will apply. We are not always in a position at the time of booking to confirm the flight timings which will be used in connection with your flight. The flight timings shown in our brochure, website and/ or on your confirmation invoice are for guidance only and are subject to alteration and confirmation. Flight timings are outside our control. They are set by airlines and are subject to various factors including air traffic control restrictions, weather conditions and the ability of passengers to check in on time. 16. Health and safety You must attend all mandatory safety briefings and drills at the commencement of the holiday and any subsequent briefings or drills required during the holiday by any carrier or supplier. 17. Indemnity You must indemnify us and the carrier for all penalties, fines, charges, losses or expenses incurred or imposed upon us, the carrier or our suppliers by virtue of an act or violation of law by you and or any breach of these terms and conditions or any carrier’s or suppliers terms and conditions of conditions of carriage. 18. Medical facilities There are no doctors on board any of the ships, yachts. Should you require medical attention during your holiday then local medical services can be contacted for emergency treatment. The cost of such treatment is your sole responsibility. In relation to your own medical equipment, there are limited storage facilities on board ships and in hotels. You must check prior to booking if the equipment is allowed on board aircraft, ships or hotels. Scooters cannot be carried on board ships due to space limitations and reasons of safety. 19. Mobility During our holidays, we visit many historical sites and often enjoy walking tours of various places of interest.
