The boat was characterful and an enjoyable experience. However cabin space and sound insulation [snoring !] are minimal, the latter can be particularly difficult.

It may be worth stressing that weather can affect the itinerary to considerable loss. While one understands that weather conditions will vary, on our trip we lost out on a key island visit. Our guide made some efforts to compensate for this, but I felt he was constrained by Elite travel in substituting alternatives - ie no other kayaking venue could be used and no attempt was made to reach Vis later. I wondered why the itinerary could not have just been reversed. I sensed a certain weariness of organization at the end of the week, the last days seemed to lack any particular focus or interest.
That said, it was enjoyable overall.

One small but irritating point: it would be helpful to have a notice or person on the quayside at Trogir on the arrival day if the boat is stacked behind several other craft and thus out of sight. We waited for 2 hours wondering if anyone from Explore was around and where the boat was !

We’re glad that overall you enjoyed your holiday in Croatia, but we’re sorry to hear that the weather conditions meant that you missed one of your island visits. We note on our Trip Notes that while our intention is always to adhere to the day-to-day route printed, a degree of flexibility is needed. Overnight stops and even islands visited, may vary due to weather, sea conditions and the availability of mooring space in harbours. We have however changed the route for this trip for 2016 to try and limit the impact the sea conditions and weather have, and in order to maximise our chances of being able to stick to the advertised itinerary, and for all sights and activities to take place as planned.

The islands are gorgeous so relaxed and uncrowded. The crew and their food on the boat are great. I liked eating off the boat in the evenings which otherwise could mean you'd come back the size of a small house! (The onboard lunches are huge!). Loved the cycling on Hvar and the whole relaxing vibe of the trip. Our group was great which was a huge plus. Not particularly culturally stimulating but with a real shortage of relaxing holidays that single people can take alone, this was perfect for me. Only downside is the births have the floor space of a loo (which for 2 is cosy) and getting on and off is a nightmare unless you follow the pack light advice and what girl does?
