DAY 3: Discover Croatia with Your Skipper

Yacht Week

By Yacht Week

Posted on 2nd April 2012

The sea is calm and a turquoise blue... the land is waiting to be discovered by you... secret tunnels run throughout the island.... and the nightlife is booming with energy... no wonder it’s one of The Yacht Week’s most popular destinations. With your very own Yacht Week skipper, you can discover Croatia by sea and by land.  At The Skipper Academy, the cultural tours form part of the learning process.  The skippers are taken on daytime and nocturnal tours throughout the different destinations along the route to learn about the many secret spots of the still untouched Croatian land. Do you want to escape to an abandoned castle by day to see some of the most amazing views? Or perhaps, you’d like to enjoy an evening with your crew and skipper in one of Croatia’s wine cellars hidden deep within the mountain’s secret tunnels... [margin10] Croatia still has, since their construction in the Second World War, secret tunnels that run throughout the islands.  Vis is one of the destinations on the South Route the skippers can guide you to especially if you don't want to miss the secret tunnels and enjoy an evening of wine and food deep within a mountain.
