This boat and bike tour will take you to beautiful Croatia. With the turquoise blue of the Mediterranean slapping the sides of your motor sailing boat, you cruise over to the islands of Krk, Rab and Cres in Kvarner Gulf. Once ashore, you cycle via little known paths to solitary bays and visit the historical quarters of the old ports. You can wave at grazing sheep as you cycle past and relax in the shade of the pine forests. Back on board you can cool down by jumping into the waves. The water is so clear that you can see the sea bed with the naked eye. The last rays of the Mediterranean sun can be enjoyed on the sun deck, as they give over to the twinkling stars of the night sky.

You can choose from three different categories when booking a holiday by bike & boat in Croatia:
In the standard category you sail on the PlankaKapetan Kuka and Kažimir motor sailing boats. You'll find more luxury in the Premium Category on the Aria motor sailing boat. And if you want to treat yourself to the top category, select Deluxe - and the Alpha motor yacht is your ship!

Bike & Boat in Croatia

Your cruiser: MS Planka, MS Kapetan Kuka, MS Kažimir, MS Aria and MY Alpha

After Captain Jure Tomaš had put a new engine in his MS Planka, the boat was completely reconstructed in 2005. In the meantime, Jure's older son Marin is now at the helm of this classic wooden ship. The crew tends to your personal requirements, cooking delicious local dishes daily. You can stretch out on the large sun deck to relax. If it gets too hot, just hop right into the crystal clear water to refresh.

It couldn't be more elegant - MS Kapetan Kuka sets sail! Pero, indefatigable captain, celebrated his comeback with the purchase of this ship in 2016. He has put his all into overhauling the boat very thoroughly. The new cabin fittings and the new bathing platform at the stern are just great. While Sandra-Marie, German-Croatian daughter of the captain, prepares tasty meals, you can relax on the sun deck. If it gets too hot, simply jump right off the boat into the crystal clear water of the Mediterranean to cool down.

Kažo - known as Braco - has been captain of the MS Kažimir together with his wife since 2016. This large wooden boat with its large sun deck and seating arrangements on the upper deck offers a surprising amount of space and comfort for a very pleasant and enjoyable bike & boat cruising holiday.

Since his son took over the boat in 2015, Captain Jure Tomaš takes care of his new boat, the MS Aria. By the way, in the Dalmatian dialect, Aria means air. The majestic motorized sailing boat set sail for the first time in spring 2016. Look forward to a trip on this new comfortable boat and be pampered by the crew; relax in a deck chair on the large sundeck after wonderful bike tours.

From the summer season 2020 a new motor yacht will be sailing the waves of Kvarner Bay: the MY Alpha. It's perfectly fitted for the needs of bike & boat holiday-makers who would like to enjoy the same luxury of a hotel room when they're on holiday. From the spacious sun deck, enjoy watching the Mediterranean around you. You'll find more relaxation in the whirlpool or dive into the sea itself from the bathing platform at the stern.

Today you will cycle inland to Dobrinj and then further to Vrbnik, an old town far up on a cliff on the eastern coast of Krk.

The day begins with a short ship journey to the northern tip of the island Rab. From the harbour Lopar you will cycle across the island. The island itself does not entirely live up to its name (loosely translated: wooded) these days; the side of the island facing the Adriatic is densely wooded, the side facing main land more closely resembles a lunar landscape. The most beautiful place on the island is Rab Town which you will reach around midday. It has a beautiful historical town centre and famous towers. After lunch on board you visit the wood park Kalifront. After the guided tour in Rab you can choose one of the many restaurants in town for dinner.

Your destination is the picturesque town of Cres. Around Cres there are beautiful beaches, which remind you of the Caribbean. You will have enough time in the afternoon to discover them on your own. In the evening the crew is waiting for you with the captains dinner.
