Designed with performance in mind, monohulls are the best choice whether the conditions are flat and calm or rough and wild.

Day 1 : Trogir – Milna
Boarding, briefing with the crew and visit of the historic centre of Trogir, UNESCO World Heritage Site for its Venetian architecture. We’ll then sail out towards Milna, a nice fishermen settlement on the western side of the island of Brac. Stress-free day with some freediving lectures and dry training on the way and in the evening.
Day 2 : Milna – Stari Grad
After a relaxed morning including stretching and breathing exercises, we will have a first freediving session practicing Dynamic and Static disciplines. In the afternoon, we will have our first open water session and then make our way farther south to Stari Grad, the oldest city in Croatia located on the island of Hvar. Alternatively, we can also enjoy the wonderful beach of Zlatni Rat (Golden Horn) for a swim.
Day 3 : Stari Grad – Hvar
After our morning freediving session, we will sail around Hvar, the longest island in the Adriatic Sea, towards Hvar town, with on the way a chance for a swim at the Pekleni Islands. The town is enchanting and exhibits a Renaissance cathedral, with its original tower, and the oldest community theatre in Europe. A favourite of world travellers, who especially appreciate the sunset from the hill overlooking Hvar port.
Day 4 : Hvar – Vis
On our possible only day off from freediving, we will head towards Vis island, the beauty of limpid waters and protected submarine world rich with sunken ships and magic marine images that has been hidden for years. Relax on secluded beaches of numerous peaceful bays, in transparent blue sea and under the hot sun of Vis. Possibility to visit an old WWII military tunnel and fortress and stay overnight nearby.
Day 5 : Vis – Komiza
Second day on the island of Vis, we will dive around the southern town of Komiža. Morning wreck dive located ten meters below the surface and then to the nearby island Biševo to see amazingly beautiful natural treasures, the Blue and Green Caves. Lectures and workshops in the late afternoon, possibility to stay in Komiža port for the evening or the night.
Day 6 : Komiza – Maslinica
Morning freediving session around Komiza before sailing back up North towards Šolta, the island of olives, honey, and wine. The island still remains unspoiled by mass tourism and upon the visit, you will get the feeling that time has simply stopped there. You will be able to enjoy a clean nature, breathe fresh air and truly relax your body and mind. A perfect stopover in Maslinica before going back to mainland.
Day 7 : Maslinica – Trogir
Morning relaxation and freediving session in both the morning and the afternoon in order to pass potential requirements to obtain freediving certifications. Lectures and workshops before heading back to Trogir either in the evening or the next morning

I did a one-week cruise around Trogir with Nicolas. Knowing not much about sailing and freediving I feel like this was the perfect introduction. Nicolas did everything to create the perfect experience for everyone on board. I am super happy I did a Wave 1 Freediving Course with him, His explanations about equalization where super helpful. I always felt very safe during my dives. As a little bonus it was such a nice crew we met onboard. Big recommendation to everyone.

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.

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
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.
