And, not to mention our stunning 140' Luxury Yacht! ABOUT OUR YACHT / LAND TOUR OF CROATIA: Don't miss this Amazing opportunity of a Lifetime to see the World's Hottest Destination... and the best way to explore Croatia, is by private yacht! Small ships offers a more intimate cruising experience. The M/Y Dream allows for access to the relatively small ports, harbors and inlets, providing unique views of the landscape and surroundings. Our tour includes our own "Private Chartered Yacht" - so the itinerary is customized to maximize our time in each port. It is not a rushed itinerary, like on a Cruise Ship. We spend the night in each port- as we spend most of the Day and All Night in each port- so we maximize our time- exploring the town by Day and Evening for dinner and nightlife. We only travel 1-2 hours (depending on each port) each morning to the next destination. For those that don't like cruises- we are cruising close to shore- mostly in sight of shore with minimal waves or motion- similar to a river cruise. The convenience of our Yacht means we don't travel by bus or change hotels during our 7 Night Yacht Cruise- allowing for more time in each area we visit. ABOUT CROATIA... THE HOTTEST DESTINATION IN THE WORLD NOW! Croatia, known as unspoiled and the "Pearl of the Adriatic Sea", it is one of the most popular places in the world to visit! It is quite simply one of the most beautiful corners of the Mediterranean combining a spectacular coastline with the translucent waters of the Adriatic. There are 1185 islands in Croatia and 1778 kilomters of coastline- with only 50 islands are inhabited. It would be almost impossible to view the Adriatic from any point on the Croatian coastline without being able to see an island raising from the powerful and beautiful blue breadth. The towns and cities of Croatia have plenty to offer as well. Dubrovnik is one of Croatia's southern-most cities and the starting point for our tour! George Bernard Shaw said of Dubrovnik, "If you want to see heaven on earth, come to Dubrovnik." He wasn't the last admirer of this beautiful town. The city has enjoyed a resurgence as of late thanks to the hit television series "Game of Thrones," which shoots many of its episodes here and where we will visit these on our visit.
