Open Sea Sailing Adventure
Deep blue sea and hidden coves
Open Sea Sailing Adventure is a journey for fans of the deep blue sea and hidden coves who prefer authentic and rarely seen nature and the absolute silence that only far away lighthouses of the open sea can offer. On this journey, we tour big and small islands, we enter their interior, explore famous and less-known sea caves, and swim in their turquoise blue sea. Our final destination is in the Open Sea Sailing Adventure is the island of Lastovo. The most distant inhabited island in the Adriatic Sea, which together with 44 islets in a protected archipelago forms a surreal oasis of natural beauty, cultural heritage, and peace.
The main highlight of the tour is Lastovo Island
Immersed in the sea, far from the mainland, all crowds, and even light pollution. It offers a view of the crystal clear night sky scattered with stars like almost nowhere else in Europe. Millions of stars leave observers breathless. Stars are not our only guiding light on our journey. As we sail we will also explore and get to know more about the lighthouse phenomenon on the eastern coast of the Adriatic Sea. All the monumental lighthouses built in inaccessible areas bear witness to the construction feats achieved in the 19th century. The lighthouses built by the Austro-Hungarian Empire still show the way to sailors today. We will tour four lighthouses, each of which offers a unique view of its position and architecture.
