European Boat Journeys

Added 21 Mar 2012
European Boat Journeys

Board one of our traditional boats and let the adventure come to you. Whether you’re aboard our caique in Greece, gulet in Turkey or oldtimer in Croatia, you’ll combine relaxing on board with exploring on shore and swimming and snorkelling in the sea.

Running regularly throughout the summer months, these holidays slow you right down and are perfect for getting away from it all. Sit back, grab a chilled drink and watch the world go by, just as the Explore passengers below have recently done… 

Greek Island Cruise 

“This was the most amazing holiday and everything I hoped for. We arrived at the boat and were immediately made to feel at home. Everything was taken care of, including amazing 3 course lunches. The crew made sure that we relaxed from the instant we arrived. We travelled along the coast during the day to see some beautiful villages and then moored up for the night. This meant that days were spent sunbathing and swimming off the boat and then the evening ashore eating at some lovely restaurants. In future, I would advise people not to bother taking any luggage except a swim suit as that is all you need - well, during the day anyway! And to take plenty of books. I would definitely recommend this holiday to anyone that needs to take time out and recharge, or just fancies a bit of sun!” Zoe

Dalmatian Island Cruise

“The boat was lovely & clean and the crew took great pride in keeping it this way. The food on the boat was really really good, I'm vegetarian and Tony the chef always made me something different. The best part I think was chilling out on the deck chairs on the top deck watching the ocean go by. Also mooring in a cove for pre-dinner swim, then not having to go anywhere once you had got dressed, you could just sit on deck with a cold beer - heaven!” ER

Blue Cruise

“As soon as we met our Tour Leader and he introduced us to both the crew and our beautiful wooden gulet I could tell we were going to have an excellent week travelling along the Lycian Shore of Turkey. On offer to us was a mixture of visits to historical sites, an exciting walk through a gorge, kayaking, as well as plenty of time to relax on the spacious deck or swim and snorkel in beautiful quiet coves. A few nights moored in those quiet coves were balanced with a couple of stopovers in Turkish harbour towns with nightlife on offer if you wanted it. Although 'local speciality' food was expected, we hadn't anticipated the excellent quality and variety, or the big happy family feeling of everyone sitting together for meals around one table talking about each day's experiences and looking forward to those yet to come. This tour will suit anyone who enjoys a mixture of excitement and relaxation - just balance them as you want although my advice would be to try everything offered - and I'd never spent more than a day on a boat before this!” CPS
