So Much More Than I Expected!!

Water By Nature once again provided my partner and I a trip of a lifetime. The Croatia/Montenegro sailing and rafting trip was the prefect blend of adventure and relaxation, open water and charming port cities, world class meals and cozy cafes. Our crew was fun and safety minded, making a sailing/rafting trip enjoyable. We were immersed in the culture with a very impressive itinerary that also accommodated for kicking back and soaking it all in. I’d love to go back.. if only WBN did not have so many other tempting trips.

We have been traveling with WBN for a few years now and keep coming back for more. The trips are always beautifully orchestrated and no detail is left to chance. Croatia didn’t disappoint, neither in scenery, sailing or it’s people. The sailing was amazing and being able to swim in the middle of the Adriatic was exhilarating. Each port was unique unto itself, as was sleeping on deck underneath beautiful starry skies. One unexpected aspect of the trip was how absolutely wonderful the food was. Whether we had seafood, regional dishes or something else, the food was masterfully prepared and delicious. We had multiple Michelin Star prepared meals in addition to grilling off the back of the sailboat or taking the dingy inshore for a local treat, which is not to be missed!! The second most unexpected aspect of the trip was the diversion to Montenegro. We knew what we were expecting from the landscape in Croatia but didn’t really have any idea about Montenegro‘s wild natural beauty. Lake Piva and the Tara River were absolutely stunning as was the extra day that we added to hike the mountains. We recommend this beautiful diversion if you’re remotely interested. It was amazing and our guide was the first Montenegran to summit Mount Everest!! Talk about a way to see things!!! We can’t say enough about WBN and their attention to detail. We have already booked our next adventure for New Zealand 2024. Our continued loyalty to WBN says it all!!! Thanks Hamish for always making it a memorable trip!!

I had a great fun time on my recent Croatia Sailing trip with Water By Nature. Sailing was both relaxing and invigorating as we explored the beautiful clear blue warm waters of the Dalmatian Coast, the lovely island towns, and the secluded tranquil coves. I had little prior sailing experience but really enjoyed life on the water. Swimming off the boat in the middle of the ocean was really fun. And sailing in the wind and salt spray was exciting. The food was amazing. Rafting the beautiful blue Tara River in Montenegro was a really nice complement to sailing. In fact, I would suggest spending even more time exploring in the mountains of Montenegro. And a really nice ending was exploring the beautiful photogenic old town of Dubrovnik. Life on the water with Water By Nature!
