This proud, modern three-master was a core part of our fleet for many years, until its former owner decided four years ago to organise a different type of cruise. In autumn 2016, Sveti Vid was sold – and to none other than our long-term captain Marin Mladin (nicknamed Čičak or “burdock” because of his beard) from the Otac Luka. Čičak and his son Marin completely renovated Sveti Vid in Winter 2016/2017 with no external assistance whatsoever. The bathrooms in all the cabins were completely renovated and newly furnished and the saloon was completely redesigned. His girlfriend Nina also had a significant hand in decorating the saloon, which can be seen at first glance. Our initial concerns, regarding how Čičak, who had held the wheel of the smaller Otac Luka for eleven years – would now cope with a much larger and more modern ship, were completely unfounded. Our personal conversations with guests who were more than satisfied for the past two summer seasons showed us that for him, nothing whatsoever is impossible.

Route

 


Route:
Rijeka – Island of Krk – Island of Rab – Zadar – Kornati Islands National Park – Zadar Archipelago – Island of Lošinj – Island of Cres – Rijeka
If you are coming by car you can drive into the port from 09:00 am. Our service team will then direct you to the garage and transfer you back to the port. Please note that embarkation time is from 11:00 am to 01:00 pm. After embarkation our representative will greet you with a welcome drink, and you will have a chance to get to know the crew and your fellow passengers. While enjoying a snack, we weigh anchor and head off for the marvellous island of Krk. Our first stop is a secluded cove, where you will for the first time be able to dive into the wonderful waters of the Adriatic Sea. We then continue on to Krk, the capital of the island, or Punat, where we will moor for the night.
After breakfast, we set off for the next island – Rab. After about two hours, we will drop anchor in a romantic bay – here you will have plenty of time for swimming and sunbathing. We will reach the lovely town of Rab in the late afternoon. A guide will await us to take us on a guided walk. The old town of Rab, with its impressive bell towers, stretches around a narrow, rocky promontory, flanked by water. Three streets pass through the old town – the “Lower Street” with cafés and pubs, the “Middle Street” with boutiques, souvenir shops and ice cream parlours, and the “Upper Street”, which leads to the four churches with their bell towers. Overnight stay in Rab.
Today, we will leave the Kvarner Bay and head to Dalmatia. After a swimming break, we will reach Zadar, the centre of northern Dalmatia. After arriving in Zadar, a local tour guide will await us to take us on a walk through the walled old town, showing us unique sights like the Roman Forum, the circular church of Sveti Donat, or the Cathedral Sveta Stošija. Enjoy traffic-free streets with elegant boutiques and countless cafés, or listen to the sounds of the world-wide unique Sea Organs on the Riva, whose melodies are created purely by waves. Overnight stay in Zadar.
Surely the highlight of our trip! According to the Irish author George Bernard Shaw, "On the last day of creation, God crowned his work, and thus created, out of tears, stars and breath, the Kornati Islands". The beautiful scenery, countless small and large islands, and the turquoise sea - all this makes the Kornati Islands a unique paradise. It is the largest and most dense archipelago in the Adriatic Sea - comprising 147 islands, islets and reefs, which cover an area of 35 km of length. From Zadar, we will continue our cruise, heading towards the "Proversa", a narrow passage between the islands of Dugi Otok and Kornat, which is the entrance to the unique National Park. After passing the fascinating area of the National park, we will continue towards north and anchor at one of the numerous islands of the beautiful Zadar archipelago - Dugi Otok, Zverinac, Molat or Olib.
We head towards the island of Lošinj, which is not only known for its 300 cloudless or only slightly clouded sunny days per year, but also for being covered by dense pine forests. With a bit of luck, we will maybe spot dolphins playing in the waves; in the waters around the island of Lošinj, there are more than 220 dolphins registered by the “Adriatic Dolphin Project”. After a swimming break, we will reach Mali Lošinj, where we will spend the evening and the night.
Today we will sail to the neighbouring island of Cres. The striking feature of the island are the endless olive groves and the innumerable flocks of sheep. Needless to say, that roast lamb is one of the specialties of the island of Cres. After the obligatory swimming break, we will head towards the picturesque town of Cres, where we will stay for the night.
Time to say goodbye to the Croatian islands. From Cres we will cruise along the eastern shoreline of Istria to Rijeka – not without taking one last dip into the sea. Overnight stay in the port of Rijeka.
After breakfast, disembarkation until 9:00 am.
