Starting with “The most beautiful sunset in the world”, as Alfred Hitchcock described his experience during his stay in the town of Zadar, you sail out north by north-west on an epic cruise among the numerous islands along the coast of Dalmatia to discover the pristine natural beauty which can hardly be found anywhere else in the world.
Just drop your paddleboard off the boat and you are set to go – to take an easy paddle to the hidden blue lagoon and you private bay … or to challenge yourself with an open-sea crossing between the islands. As you like it, everything is possible with the full comfort of the sailboat always at hand including your private cook awaiting you with canapés and margaritas on the deck when you return.
About a hundred-mile sailing route takes you a thousand years back in time as you visit the islands’ stone-built villages and fall under the spell of the laid back Dalmatian atmosphere. Your 10 days out of this world!
Paddling time per day: As much as you please

Day 1: Arrival in Zadar
We pick you up at Zadar airport and take you to your hotel in Zadar. You have time to relax, explore the lively streets of the Old Town, take a walk along the sunset promenade to discover the sea organ. In the evening we meet for the welcome dinner in order to introduce ourselves and discuss the tour over some good food.
Day 2-9: Cruising the islands, paddling, relaxing, indulging ...
After breakfast at the hotel we take a short drive to the marina to board our sailboat and take off to the islands. Sestrunj, Molat, Ist, Škarda, Premuda, Susak, Srakane, Unije, Lošinj, Ilovik, Silba, Olib are on the list. But as an old skipper’s saying goes: “At sea the plan is the best alternative” we might skip one or two of them, but as well add three others to the list.
Along our way we take every opportunity to discover the numerous treasures this area has to offer: warm seas perfect for swimming and scuba diving, local cuisine based on freshly caught fish, home-made cheese, olive oil and local wines … and old villages where time had stopped long ago.
On day 9 we return to Zadar marina in the late afternoon. After checking-in at your hotel you time to relax in the lovely atmosphere of Zadar’s Old Town. We meet again in the evening for the farewell dinner to sum up the impressions.
