Description season 2019:
Ever since we started offering vacation cruises in Croatia, the MS Otac Ivan has been an inherent part of our fleet. The owners, Neven and Mario Mušac, two brothers from the small place Medići close to Omiš, bought this beautiful wooden vessel in 2014 to continue her tradition of cruising the Croatian Adriatic Sea. Both of them do exactly know how to meet their guest’s needs and wishes, as the Mušac family is looking back on a long-lasting tradition of hospitality. Besides that the family offers holiday apartments in their homeplace Medići, Neven used to take tourists on boat excursion trips, showing them the beauties of the Croatian islands while his brother Mario has been sailing the world’s oceans on large ships. AAfter Neven has built a new ship, at whose helm he also stands himself, captain Zoran Bauk from Split has taken over the command of the Otac Ivan. In the summer of 2019, he will initially strengthen our fleet in Rijeka to show his guests the islands of the Kvarner Bay and Northern Dalmatia, before changing the embarkation port in August and setting sails from Trogir in the direction of Dubrovnik.

Description season 2020:
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 from Omiš 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 future wife Larissa to take advantage of the opportunity and show his own guests the beauties of the Dalmatian island world. While Dino will hold the helm of the Otac Ivan with a sure hand, Larissa – who speaks well English and German – will take 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.

Port of Rijeka - Kvarner Region • Port of Trogir - Central Dalmatia

Port of Rijeka

Rijeka is the third largest city in Croatia and the largest and most important seaport of the country. Rijeka is just a few hours by car from central Europe – public transportation (bus and train) depart from several countries on a daily base. The airport is located 30 kilometres outside Rijeka on the island of Krk. The city centre is close to the harbour and offers fantastic shopping opportunities, plus a number of cultural monuments and many places of interest. There is plenty of evening entertainment along the harbour road, the “Riva”.

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.
