Croatia is a gorgeous country that has been gaining popularity in the world over the last years like never before.

This blog post will help you and give you some crucial staters information that will make your holiday cruise planning way easier in many ways!


1. Know what you are looking for:

a) Before you jump on board of a gulet you have to define your max budget and see how flexible it is so that you can know better what to expect.

b) You also have to tell us the size of the group that is travelling with you. It is good to define a minimum and a maximum number of guests so we can find you a proper gulet that will satisfy you. Even more important than a number of people, is the structure of the group.

It’s important that you define if you are travelling with for example young kids, mixed group or maybe you are the group of seniors… Whatever the structure is it’s important for us to know so we can once again ensure you get the best gulet that will fit your group the most.


c) When you cruise is very important. The period of the cruise is important because each month offers different activities and different atmosphere. Depending on the thing you would prefer to do, see, and how flexible your budget is you can pick from cruising in offseason, mid-season or high season.

5. Enjoying the cruise

Things you will do on your gulet cruise areas equally important as the things you will see. Possibilities when it comes to activities on gulets are endless! Like we said earlier 5 weeks before your cruise, you are assigned with a personal assistant and he will advise you on all possibilities but for now here are few examples how you can enjoy on a cruise! You have to be a bit of an adventurist at heart since every single day (unless you wish otherwise) you can explore different locations. You can partake in different activities that don’t have to be super extreme like bungee jumping, but a nice hike or bike ride might be something you would enjoy.


Kayaking is always fun!


Stay active and enjoy various water sports!

Water sports activities

On gulet cruise, you can start your day by jumping in from boat in crystal clear warm sea that will definitely wake you up better than any morning shower you ever took! Early morning hours on gulet are one of the most beautiful moments since there soft mellow waves coloured with a tinge of first red and orange colours of sunshine. After such a good start of the day, you will be able to enjoy tasty breakfast, coffee and tea served by your crew that will be at your service when needed. Later you can relax and chill until Captain leads you to next beautiful destination. During that time you might have swim stops on the way to refreshed up in the blues sea and of course, an appetizing lunch will be served too.

Jump in the sea first thing in the morning!
