This sailing adventure is made for true nature lovers. The wind will take us through 2 Croatian national parks (Krka National Park and Kornati National Park) and 1 park of nature (Telaščica). You will experience nature at its best. Unbelievable bays, around 100 islands in small area of Kornati archipelago, salty lake, cliffs, waterfalls, amazing views and sunsets over Kornati… Even the most city oriented people can’t resist falling in love with nature here. Did we mention local gastronomy? You will have a chance to meet locals and they will share their every day with You. In the morning You will see them go fishing and that same catch will be on Your plate for diner later that day in one of the charming “Konoba” (local restaurant).
Our sailing adventures are all full of activities, but it is up to each individual to decide the level of participation, You can really get active with full participation in sailing and other maritime skills, swimming, hiking, snorkeling, suping (stand up paddling) or You can just relax and enjoy beautiful views from cockpit of the boat with book in one hand and cold drink in another. Sailing through national park Kornati offers a lot of possibilities of short, not too demanding hikes. Bike tour around Krka waterfalls on is simply “a must do it” experience.
Max 10 people + Skipper (Sleeps in Saloon)
Sailing boats all have twin and double bad cabins. Depends on how many You are and a comfort You need, You can choose a boat with 2, 3, 4 or even 5 cabins.
We sail boats from most renowned brands like Beneteau, Jeanneau, Elan, Hanse, Bavaria, Dufour, Lagoon, Fountaine Pajot. They are all modern and in excellent condition, fully equipped, offering as much comfort as one can get.
On a second day, after breakfast and morning swim, we will set sails towards small town of Sali on the South-East part of Dugi Otok.
Sali is a place of thousand years old fishing tradition, which was confirmed by written documents from the 10th century and ancient olive groves surrounding the village witness the intensive agricultural activities throughout the centuries. It is hard to say why, but this small town has something that makes it very popular among sailors, so the atmosphere is always great in Sali, especially in one of the sailors’ favorite – caffee Maritimo. Sali is also great starting point for cruising 2 National parks just south of the Village. Which is our plan for the next day.
Our next destination is small town called Skradin and National Park Krka which starts right there in Skradin. To reach Skradin, we must first sail aprox. 10Nm through Strait of Prokljan, which is amazing experience on its own. Skradin is the central point of National Park Krka, being one of the oldest Croatian localities with the city status (since the 2nd century AD). National Park Krka: the empire of Krka River, the magnificant karstic beauty traveling two thirds of its way to the sea through canyons, is a complete opposite of Kornati. On its green path, it has seven falls, the last one being Skradinski buk with an average flow of 55 cubic meters of water per second. National Park Krka is rich in flora and fauna. 222 bird species live there, making it one of the most valuable ornithological areas in Europe. We will spend day swimming just at the bottom of Skradinski buk.
On Thursday it is time to slowly sail back towards our base. We will sail back through Prokljan strait and than North. We will find shelter for the night in one of the bays of small archipelago just North of Island Murter. Of course, like every day we will practice our sailing skills and find some unique place for swimming and other activities.
Last night we will return to our base, but holidays are far from over as Zadar has its own charm. Definitely a must see, beside historic sites, are 2 unique contemporary architecture installation: »Sea Organ« and »Sun Salutation«. First is a system of pipes and whistles integrated in stone stairs descending in to the sea. The effect of sea to the stairs is hypnotic as the pipes exudes wistful sighs when the movement of the sea pushes air through it. And the second which is right next to the Sea Organ and is a complement to the first. It’s a 22m wide circle cut into pavement, filled with 300 multilayered glass plates that collect the sun’s energy during the day and together with the wave energy that makes the Sea Organ’s sound, produce a trippy light show from sunset to sunrise that’s meant to simulate the solar system.» Boasting a historic old town of Roman ruins and medieval churches, cosmopolitan cafes and quality museums, Zadar is an excellent city. It’s not too crowded, it’s not overrun with tourists and its two unique attractions-the sound and light spectacle of the Sea Organ and Sun Salutation – need to be seen and heard to be believed.« Lonely Planet
