Dubrovnik Islands sailing holidays
Description of Dubrovnik Islands sailing holidays
Our sailing trips are all tailor-made, but they have to start on Saturday.
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.
PlanetA beautiful and pristine environment is one of the key elements our region has to offer. We are fully aware of global pollution trends and are big supporters of “Green” tourism and other initiatives. We are collaborating with Green Sails organization in order to promote recycling and sustainable tourism and protect nature, especially the ocean. Our goal is to promote this idea among our guests and we hope they stick to the idea of sustainability also after their holidays are finished.
We encourage our guests to take trips during the off-peak period to prevent overstraining resources. We also educate them on how to reduce the impact on nature and mostly the feedback is great which results in environmentally aware travelers who then go home and continue with the movement and spreading the idea.
Sustainable and environmentally friendly transport – bikes, kayaks, rafts, paddleboards, bikes and sailing boats are means of transportation on our tours.
Our company also owns 2 hybrid vehicles. On top of it, our tours are guided by local guides in partnership with local “green-oriented” partners.
PeopleThe main focus of our services is to show local and authentic values of Croatia and Slovenia as well as support local business.
Our tours are designed not only to show the natural beauties of our area but also to get the feeling of local life, present, and past, to meet local people and understand their traditions (fisherman, farmers…) and culture. During our active tours, we include local visits, whether it is local eco farm, wine cellar, olive oil production, lavender oil production, meet a fisherman or similar.
Agrotourism – highlights of our tours are agro-tourism venues, where farmers and fisherman prepare homemade products and provide them for our guests. In these areas, it is possible to taste ancient specialties, see unique sites (old stone olive press, wine cellars, ancient kitchen) and hear “special “stories which cannot be found and seen in most of standard touristic destinations and offers. All the products tasted in agro-tourism are being produced locally which helps to continue local traditions and sustainable tourism.
We employ local guides who are professional, multilingual and knowledgeable about areas where they are guiding. We believe this is the best for our guests, the local economy and our business. Also, our suppliers and partners are local and need to have the same “green” vision as we have. Our activities (sailing, kayaking, biking, hiking, diving) gives our guests the chance to explore authentic areas located off the beaten path where tourism is not the main source of income and see the real deal. This also helps in developing those areas.
