About the route

Starting point: Dubrovnik

Arrival: We can arrange a transfer from the airport to the marina for you. The transfer is not included in the price.

About: Dubrovnik is Croatia’s most popular tourist destination as it is essentially a medieval town, whose historic core seems to have been suspended in time. The churches and public buildings mixed with the green-shuttered stone houses form a picturesque image that has relatively remained untouched by the twenty-first century.
