The Škarica family and her classic wooden vessel MS Dalmatino have been cruising on our tours departing from Zadar already since many years. While doing the regular itineraries during high season, other periods were especially reserved for our popular bike & boat cruises. With the clear intention of offering even more comfort to their passengers, the Škarica family decided a few years ago to build a new boat. The building of the new vessel already started in spring 2015 at the shipyard in Split. In the beginning of summer 2016, the Carpe Diem made her maiden voyage. The modernly designed steel-hull vessel offers 17 comfortable cabins, a spacious saloon on the upper deck and even a bicycle garage is provided for the convenience of our bike & boat cruise guests. While father Ante does not give up the steering wheel of the Dalmatino, his sons Roko and Jure – both have of course been captains for years – have been steering the Carpe Diem through the island world. And "good soul" mother Nada does not only take care of the logistics, but also makes sure that everything in the galley is always in perfect order. The family's latest newbuilding – the "MY Voyage“, a vessel of the Deluxe category – has been launched for the 2020 season. Jure retains command of the Carpe Diem, while Roko has taken the helm of the Voyage.

Port of Zadar - Northern Dalmatia

Port of Zadar

The inhabitants of Zadar proudly call their city: “Najlipši grad na svitu” (“The most beautiful city in the world”). The former capital of Dalmatia is situated on a peninsula bordered by two “Rivas”. The side facing the mainland is simply called “Riva” – here ferries and passenger ships anchor and fishermen bring their catch ashore every morning. On the other side, facing the island, lays the “New Riva” – the perfect setting to stroll along the waterfront, where lovers meet for their rendezvous; since a few years, it is the only place in the world, where you can listen to the unique melodies of the Sea Organs. Embedded between the Rivas, you will discover one of the most beautiful old towns in Dalmatia. The traffic-free main street (called “Kalelarga”), with its boutiques and cafes, is the lifeline of the city. On both sides of the street, you will find picturesque alleys in which the “Klapa” intone their songs of sheer joy. Magnificent historical buildings, such as the circular church of St. Donat, the Cathedral of Sveta Stošija, the Roman Forum and many other fascinating places are waiting to be discovered!
