We went to Croatia again this year with Abruzzo Skipper’s catamaran and it was a great experience. Miriam and Danilo’s professionalism and graciousness accompanied us during these seven days and made our vacation relaxing and enjoyable. Miriam’s kitchen delighted us with excellent quality dishes and tasty appetizers. The children and young people also had a great time. I recommend this truly unique vacation to everyone.

Turning the experience aboard Aunt Nella, in the crystal-clear waters of Croatia, into words may not do credit to the totality of emotions experienced, but it can help to stop them and define their contours.
On board, the sea cradles you, envelops you, shifts your gaze to the infinity made up of a thousand declinations of blue. Thomas, in the calm rocking of the waves, is able to mix flavors and create tasty and rich dishes (nice and many), being attentive to all kinds of dietary needs. Danilo, our captain, reads minds, grants every wish without needing to express it, leads with a sure hand and steady gaze toward the goal. And our every wish turned into a dream. The vacation aboard Aunt Nella was a dream, anticipated by Antonella, confirmed by Danilo and Tommaso. I forgot, bad weather, it is never a problem, rather it is an advantage…thank you, Abruzzo Skipper!

Multi-day tour FAQ

A deposit of 50% of the price is required to confirm the reservation. Within 30 days of departure you must make the balance of the remaining 50%.

If you wish to cancel your reservation, we reserve the right to retain the payment received. So, should you cancel your trip before 30 days prior to departure, the 50% deposit paid will be retained. If you cancel after 30 days prior to departure, 100% of the rental amount will be withheld.

No, there is no security deposit with our All-Inclusive formula.

The catamaran is the right choice if you are looking for stability, more privacy, comfort and large spaces aimed at livability on board. For those who in addition to relaxation dream of a bit of adventure, we recommend an experience aboard one of our sailboats.

In case of adverse Meteomarine conditions, you will remain stationary in the Port until they improve. Depending on the weather and sea conditions, the skipper will establish and evaluate whether to undertake the crossing to reach the chosen destination. The same goes for the return. In the event that on the day of return it is not possible to make the crossing to reach the nautical base, we will wait for the weather and sea conditions to improve.

Notwithstanding the weather and sea conditions, usually the crossing to get to Croatia lasts from 10 to 12 hours depending on the destination that the skipper decides to reach. On board the transfer, the crossing takes about 4 hours.

Notwithstanding the weather and sea conditions, the crossing to reach the Tremiti Islands usually takes about 4 hours.

Being a European state, it is sufficient to have an Electronic Identity Card, alternatively, a passport.

Few things are needed on the boat; you spend most of your time in a bathing suit and T-shirt. We recommend some more elegant clothing for when you go out in the evening, a couple of sweaters and a k-way for windy days, as well as the ever-present sunscreen. It is strongly recommended to avoid trolleys and prefer soft bags due to space issues. For more details see our article on
What to Bring on a Boat Vacation
.

As much as we love them, unfortunately, we do not allow animals on board.

Boat vacations are ideal for children of all ages, who will be in a protected environment where they can play safely all day and have fun.

We normally spend the day at anchor in one, two or three bays between swimming, water sports and relaxation. In the evening, a decision will be made whether to sleep at anchor in some secluded cove under the stars or dock in a port and go ashore to visit the small towns. If there is no possibility to moor in the port, you will be accompanied ashore with the tender. On average we will sail two to three hours a day divided into two trips, the rest of the time we will spend in roadstead or ashore.
