Reviews

Thank you for this week spent together discovering Croatia. For having guided us in the different activities. Perfect accompaniment and many suggestions for activities (visits, diving…) without ever imposing anything.

Juliette L – August 23, 2022

Amazing experience ! We had a great week cruising the water of the Adriatic sea and improving our freediving level. We felt like home with all comfort on the sailing boat while Damir our skipper led us to some beautiful islands of Croatia. Hvar was the highlight of our week for sure.
Speaking of freediving : I had plenty of time to freedive and improve my technique during the week. I passed my Wave 1 and 2 levels with Nico. He really is a professional instructor, calm, patient and funny.
I definitely recommend this freediving cruise.

Christophe R – October 7, 2021

We did a freediving cruise last summer. I had certain doubts as to how would that go, because the people on board had different knowledge levels (both in sailing and freediving), but Damir did a fantastic job in organizing the trip and providing tailor-made sailing lessons (some individual, some collective). Regarding the freediving component of our vacation, I have to mention that we had four teenagers on board and that all of them managed to freedive deeper than 10 meters.
I would recommend this type of vacation to everyone interested to unite with nature and discover something new – both in the stunning environment and within one’s own self.
