The Otac Ivan has been an integral part of the Riva fleet for many years, and many guests came back again and again on “their” ship. For a long time, the Otac Ivan was in the hands of the legendary Captain Branimir, until he decided a few years ago with a heavy heart to retire. He sold his ship to two brothers who took turns at the helm. After one of them returned to cargo shipping and the other took over his newly built ship, the Otac Ivan was for sale again. The young captain Dino Šare – he comes from a family with a long seafaring tradition and he grew up on ships – decided together with his engaged Larissa to take advantage of the opportunity and show his own guests the beauties of the Dalmatian island world. While Dino holds the helm of the Otac Ivan with a sure hand, Larissa – who speaks well English and German – takes care of all the needs of her guests on board. As a graduate psychologist who has worked on our ships for several years during the semester breaks, she will lip-read your wishes. For the 2020 season, all cabins and bathrooms as well as the saloon have been renovated.

Port of Trogir - Central Dalmatia

Port of Trogir

One of the most picturesque old towns of Dalmatia. Trogir – about 20 km north of Split, close to the airport. The old town is situated on a small island, which is connected by a bridge to the main land. Another bridge leads from this island to the island of Čiovo, upstream of Trogir. Due to its numerous monuments from all periods, Trogir is also called “Museum City”. It is a great experience to stroll through the narrow alleys during the afternoon or evening time. The massive walls, defence towers, churches, frescoes and vaults are simply astonishing. It is also interesting to take a look into the old back yards. After visiting the museums, treasuries, art collections and old libraries, restaurants, cafés, taverns and the typical Konobas invite you to enjoy a relaxing break. Seget, which is situated right next to Trogir, actually consists of two villages, Seget Donji with its superb stone and gravel beaches, and Seget Gornji, set a few miles away on a mountain, with its ancient stone houses. In short: Trogir and Seget are the ideal combination for a relaxing and exciting vacation.
