We have just spent 15 days on a 15m-long sailboat between the islands of Croatia and we are delighted with this trip. Our skipper was Nicolas who we congratulate for his professionalism, his kindness, his availability, his seriousness and his humour.

I joined a freediving cruise in May 2022 in Southern Dalmatia. What a great experience! I was napping frequently for the first two days because I felt immersed into such a relaxing atmosphere that I just could not resist it. After “recharging” I was ready to dive and to sail and – I got it all.
I enjoyed sea life and sharing this experience with my fellow “crew-members”. I would love to do the freediving cruise again in the very near future.
Maja D – June 10, 2022
I had an amazing time sailing in Croatia. We did everything that was listed on the website – sailing, freediving, island hopping, exploring old towns, doing some hikes. It was a nice combination – spending time at the sea, but also being able to do some walks, try local cuisine, visit medieval towns. Great time with cool people. Definitely would do it again!
Aleksandra S – June 6, 2022
Thank you Nicolas for your patience and kindness. We really had a great week discovering some of the islands of South Dalmatia with you. I wish you a good continuation and maybe see you soon for a next cruise.
