Multi-Adventure Cruise South Dalmatia

Multi-Adventure Cruise South Dalmatia

(8 Days/7 Nights, approx. 40 km )


This Multi-Adventure Cruise in South Dalmatia is particularly well-suited for families. It combines the popular bathing cruise concept of the „Blue Tour“ with a variety of activities. Spend a week on a charming motor vessel that takes you from island to island, sparing you the nuisance of packing suitcases and searching for accommodations. Along with overnights in ports, we also spend some nights 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. A well-informed tour guide who can always point out various possibilities of creating an active or a relaxed holiday.

Through little stories and legends and through the country’s cultural treasures – most of which are protected by UNESCO’s World Heritage program – we get in touch with Croatia’s eventful history. This interesting tour is rounded off by the wonderful opportunity of jumping directly off the ship into the sea for a swim. Depending on wind and weather we reserve the right to run this tour in reverse.

This itinerary has been updated for 2021. The itinerary, prices and services should remain unchanged. All tour dates for 2021 are now online and available to book.
