Venice to Dubrovnik small ship cruise

Carbon reduction

Your holiday will help support local people and conservation. We must also reduce CO2. Learn about the CO2 emissions of this holiday and how to reduce them.

Environment

Sail power has very obvious advantages over other forms of propulsion, and although we cannot use the sails all the time they provide a clean and beautiful mode of power.

The management of these vessels is dedicated to sustainable tourism in Croatia and are passionate about raising awareness of environmental, economic and sustainable tourism policies in Croatia. They believe 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. They have a very vested interest in maintaining the environment in as pristine state as possible as their business would very soon disappear if their clients weren't happy with the destination and the way the crew treat it.

Our visits to Brijuni & Krka National Parks will help preserve them by putting a little funding directly into their coffers, as will our visit to Dubrovnik.

The vessel that we use was built in Croatia, specifically for use in these waters. This ensures that the most appropriate local resources are used wherever possible, and that the vessel is built to comply and exceed local environmental and sustainability regulations.

By using small ships to visit and stay in some of the smaller ports we are providing an opportunity for a boost to tourism without the need for potentially unwanted and inappropriate new hotels to be built, and without increasing road traffic.

Both Venice and Dubrovnik are now taking measures to limit visits from large cruise ships but small ships don't have the same issues - They don't require deep channels to be dredged, they don't need vast concrete docks and the passengers spend a lot more time and money ashore.

Community

Vast floating blocks of flats, otherwise known as cruise ships, arrive in Venice and Dubrovnik and spill their loads these beautiful cities in swarms, with little regard for the capacity of the host city and often barely a chance to spend any cash . These monoliths often 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 smaller 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 communities will help to preserve the fantastic heritage of these antique coastline.

By leaving our guests free to choose their own dining venues in the evenings, this ensures that a range of small restaurants and cafes will benefit from our guests spending. Additionally the produce consumed on board is almost entirely locally sourced providing great support for local agricultural and fishing communities, sometimes from the crew’s family members.

Our vessels are captained and crewed by Croatians, and these jobs are much sought after amongst the local population.
