Luxury small ship cruise in Croatia

Carbon reduction

Your vacation will help support local people and conservation. We must also reduce CO2. Learn about the CO2 emissions of this vacation and how to reduce them.

Environment

The management of these vessels is a member of the Green Sail initiative. Members are dedicated to sustainable tourism in Croatia and are passionate about raising awareness of environmental, economic and sustainable tourism policies in Croatia. They believe the promotion of environmental awareness in the region will have a prolonged and positive impact on the livelihoods of the local people and maintain Croatia as a sustainable tourism destination for future generations.

Green Sail aims to educate and build awareness amongst all stakeholders about sustainability and ‘Green Tourism’ in Croatia through activities and continued partnerships with local businesses. Green Sail is active on a local level in Croatia and is committed to discussion, raising awareness and implementing changes that will improve sustainability in Croatia.

It is vital sustainable tourism is embraced in Croatia to preserve its natural beauty as well as protect local stakeholders. Green Sail works with local businesses and captains to ensure business is not outsourced and remains a unique Croatian experience for their guests. Green Sail is the first step to initiating a ‘Green’ change in Croatia and educating current suppliers is proving promising.

We share our responsibility to protect the environment, customs and traditions of the region with our guests and find this is appreciated as they gain knowledge and receive a culturally diverse experience whilst traveling. Green Sail aims to improve the condition of some of the beaches along the Dalmatian coast, as well as promote sustainability throughout Croatia through partnerships with local businesses learning and educating the wider community of our policies on sustainable tourism.
Through such initiatives, we aim to:

+ Raise awareness of the importance of Green Tourism in the Adriatic.
+ Promote environmentally-friendly policies with our local business partners.
+ Actively participate in local community projects to clean up beaches/ports.
+ Educate stakeholders on sustainability practices and how to manage tourism sustainably in Croatia.

Community

Vast floating blocks of flats, otherwise known as cruise ships, arrive direct from Venice and spill their loads onto the Dubrovnik dock where they are met by a huge fleet of buses that whisk them for a couple of hours in the beautiful city. These monoliths cruise past one of Europe's most beautiful coastlines with barely a second glance, and without a thought to the places they are missing.

Our vessel, on the other hand, stops at many small ports and towns where we can fully enjoy some of the very best that Croatia has to offer. The money that we will spend in many of these smaller communities will help to preserve the fantastic heritage of these antique coastline. Our visits to Mljet National Park & The Benedictine monastery on St Mary Isle will help preserve them by putting a little funding directly into their coffers.

Our vessels are captained and crewed by Croatians, and most of the produce served on board in sourced locally, sometimes from the crew’s family members, helping the economy, and the environment by less travelled produce.
