Violet sage, deep green pine forests and the blue of the Adriatic: These colours dominate the stunning coastal region in northern Dalmatia. On this cruise you take the bike whenever possible to discover the beauty of Croatia: Small hidden bathing bays and idyllic fishing villages in Dalmatia’s national parks. Jump into the crystal-clear water from the boat’s deck and soak up the rays of the sun. One of the highlights of your boat and bike cruise will be your visit of the picturesque Krka waterfalls in the national park with the same name. The river drops down over 17 cascades. In the Kornati national park, 125 small and large mostly uninhabited islands await you, which are spread out in front of the Dalmatian coast. You will cycle through fragrant forests and enjoy fantastic views of the open sea with small islands and colourful boats on the horizon. The cruise with bike to Dalmatia’s national parks is pure relaxation in one of Croatia’s most beautiful regions.

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

Your cruisers MS Dalmatino, MS Kažimir, Carpe Diem and MY Voyage

The Skarica Family understand how to make you feel welcome like a family member on board the MS Dalmatino. If you like, Ante will show you how to manoeuvre the boat. The atmosphere on board is relaxed and you will always find a quiet place to delve into your favourite book or simply gaze on the crystal clear water.

Kažo - known as Braco - has been captain of the MS Kažimir together with his wife since 2016. This large wooden boat, from Zadar, will be on the Mediterranean as of 2020. With its large sun deck and seating arrangements on the upper deck it offers a surprising amount of space and comfort for a very pleasant and enjoyable bike & boat cruising holiday.

The MS Carpe Diem has set sail for the first time with passengers in 2016. This boat is operated by Ante's sons Roko and Jure Skarica. On board they are doing their upmost to make sure that your holiday on the Adriatic Sea is as comfortable as possible. One great feature on this boat is that it has its own bike hold so your bicycles can be conveniently wheeled on board. On the upper deck is plenty of space to enjoy the sun and wonder at the glittering stars at night.

This newest boat, of the Škarica family, will be out cruising around the Mediterranean as of summer season 2020: the MY Voyage. 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.

Starting in Preko, after a refreshing meal on the boat, you can explore Ugljan which has a lot of antique ruins dating back to Roman times. The boat finally takes you back to Zadar. Enjoy the flair of this harbour town, which has many visible reminders of its antique past.

The promenade in Zadar

Day 8: Individual journey home 

After breakfast your cruise with bike in Croatia comes to an end. Disembarkation is at 9.00 am.
