This vessel is owned and sailed by the captain of the vessel, and he is passionate about raising awareness of environmental, economic and sustainable tourism policies in Croatia. He believes the promotion of environmental awareness in the region will have a prolonged and positive impact on the livelihoods of the local people and maintain Croatia as a sustainable tourism destination for future generations.
It is vital sustainable tourism is embraced in Croatia to preserve its natural beauty as well as protect local stakeholders. The captain and his crew and their families rely 100% on the beauty of Croatia to attract tourism and provide them with a living, so they are more aware than anyone of the importance of maintaining their environment.
They take important steps to maintain the environment: No waste product of any sort is ejected overboard, solid, liquid, food waste or anything at all. You can see the benefit of this, even when in harbour you will see fish and other marine life around the boat that can only exist in clean water.
Clients food is all sourced locally, which, apart from providing an economic benefit to the local communities, reduces the food miles required.
Being a modern ship, launched in 2016, with modern engines, fuel consumption is kept to a minimum and emissions are minimised.
They will share the responsibility to protect the environment, customs and traditions of the region with our guests and find this is appreciated as they gain knowledge and receive a culturally diverse experience whilst travelling.
Vast floating blocks of flats, otherwise known as cruise ships, arrive direct from Venice and spill their loads onto the Dubrovnik dock where they are met by a huge fleet of buses that whisk them for a couple of hours in the beautiful city. These monoliths cruise past one of Europe's most beautiful coastlines with barely a second glance, and without a thought to the places they are missing.
Our vessel, on the other hand, stops at many small ports and towns where we can fully enjoy some of the very best that Croatia has to offer. The money that we will spend in many of these smaller communities will help to preserve the fantastic heritage of these antique coastline. Our visits to Mljet National Park & The Benedictine monastery on St Mary Isle will help preserve them by putting a little funding directly into their coffers.
Our vessels are captained and crewed by Croatians, and most of the produce served on board in sourced locally, sometimes from the crew’s family members.
