Glide through the crystal clear waters of the Adriatic on board an exclusively chartered yacht. Relax on deck with a cool drink and when the ship drops anchor take a dip in a deserted little bay. 

Our yachts, carrying up to just 40 passengers, cruise from Dubrovnik or Split with 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.

Lovely in equal measure are the enchanting islands of the Ionian Sea. 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.

Or for a truly unique and unforgettable holiday perhaps consider a relaxing cruise around the glorious atolls and coral reefs of the Maldives.
