Sailing from a different angle
While traveling aboard our catamaran, you will experience the true culture of the islands and people. Therefore Croatia and our adventure sailing trips are awesome. Croatia is a unique and exotic place to discover.
Sibenik and its archipelago
Our first day of sailing takes us from Skradin to the open sea towards Sibenik and its archipelago. The coastal waters of Sibenik contain an archipelago of numerous islands stretching out over 157sq km. In this group of islands, only six have a permanent population that totals less than 7000 people. Needless to say, these little islands make marvelous getaways if you’re looking for a rustic vacation experience. The first destination we reach is the island Prvic. The first settlers were probably recluses. Later, in the 15th century, the place became a noble seaside resort and it was inhabited by the priests of the Benedictine and the Franciscan order, who built a monastery and later two churches.
Croatia and Sailing are awesome
On our last sailing day, we head back towards Skradin. Upon our arrival to Skradin, depending on time, you can make an optional visit to the Krka River National Park, an afternoon walk from Skradin to the 44-meters high Skradinski Buk waterfall. The fantastic karst formations and travertine waterfalls make it a beautiful swimming area. This is the famous place where the second hydro plant in the world was built, just three days after the first hydroelectric power plant on Niagara Falls. After walking, enjoying and taking breath-taking pictures you can swim under the great Skradinski Buk waterfall.
