Glide through the crystal-clear waters of the Adriatic on board an exclusively chartered yacht. A typical day on board a luxurious yacht cruise might involve lounging on the sun deck listening to the calming waves with your morning coffee as you arrive at a charming coastal town.

Our yachts, carrying up to just 40 passengers, cruise from Venice, Dubrovnik and Split and a full programme of fascinating shore excursions is included.
We also visit picturesque ports and islands which are less accessible to larger vessels allowing you to experience a quieter but equally beautiful side of the Dalmatian Coast.
Venture east to the majestic cities of the Baltic or seek out the magnificent treasures of the Black Sea and beyond.

Gaze in awe at majestic fjords and glaciers of the Arctic and experience the jaw dropping sight of glaciers and giant iceberg-filled bays amongst the mountainous terrain of the Antarctic Peninsula.
The abundant wilderness offer the opportunity to spot rare birds like the Atlantic yellow-nosed albatross, soaring and sweaping low until their wing feathers almost touch the tip of the waves, and humpack whales with their huge black tailfins peaking out as they dive down into the water.
Our exclusively chartered wooden schooners, carrying a maximum of 16 guests, will take you to the pretty harbours of Kefalonia and the enchanting coves and bays of Lefkas. Our schooner cruises also visit lesser known islands where time seems, quite literally, to have stood still. Idyllic harbours, atmospheric tavernas and hidden white beaches lapped by an azure blue sea - this is the Greece that we all dream of.
