We can cater for vegetarian and vegan diets.
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetWe are proud to announce that we are the first travel agency in Croatia that meets the standards of socially responsible and sustainable business and received the TRAVELIFE CERTIFIED certificate which means we aim to bring sustainable practice into every element on this trip.
Our ship was built in a small town in Croatia and the captain is also an owner of the ship so its a family business and the family has control over all aspects of the ship. As per itinerary we encourage minimum engine load. We use LED bulbs on the ship and eco friendly cleaning supplies
Every day the chef buys food on the small local green markets (depends on the itinerary). We also encourage our guests not to buy water bottles, but to refill their own (also written in captain's orders).
While on excursions, we ask our guests not to feed, fish, hunt and disturb animals (especially in national parks). While walking around National Park Mljet our guides always explain the rules of behaviour and we are always using marked paths as we don't want to cause any damages to flora and fauna.
Our visits to Mljet National will help preserve them by putting a little funding directly into their offers.
In production process we select sites and attractions with natural, traditional, cultural or heritage significance and it is our crucial interest to produce program which will ensure its long term protection and preservation. By this awareness we create sustainable programs which generate income for preservation needs. As per this itinerary small ports are visited (Vela Luka, Mljet).
PeopleWe encourage sustainable tourism within our country and beyond, so we hire local people throughout (managers, guides, drivers etc.) and local people are able to benefit from our guests. We employ over 75 enthusiastic and well-experienced local tourism personnel.
In Croatia, local people are moving from the islands to the towns as they are struggling to find a job on the islands. On this tour we are trying to make more jobs for local people and to preserve old crafts. Our guides are local (from the islands) and the hotels that we use are also locally owned.
This cruise includes visits to small towns and local stonemasonry school on Brac Island as we aim to promote local manufacture.
Our visits to Mljet National Park will help preserve them by putting a little funding directly into their budget. While on the trip, we encourage our guests to buy local food and to eat in local restaurants and buy local hand made souvenirs (helping the local people to build their business after the war.
Our aim is to help our community as much as we can as we are based in small town where everybody knows our name. We are proud of being a part of every charity event in Dubrovnik and around. We support the local community by providing vehicles and boats for schools and kindergartens their day trips in nature (promoting outdoor way of life).
We also support eco organisation Eko Omblici, Lions Club, swimming club JUG, National Park Krka and Dva skalina association (for children with special needs).
