Hi OTG, Just a quick note to say how much I enjoyed my recent trip to Croatia. I took the Dalmatian Discovery and enjoyed every minute. I particularly enjoyed Krka Waterfalls, Zadar and swimming on the reef. I was really impressed with the boat and the cabins and as I do on most boats - I slept like a baby. Thanks again On The Go!

Hi Kelly,

We came back from gorgeous Croatia few days ago and still can't stop thinking about it. Sailing the Dalmatian coastline and

exploring different town every day was amazing.

Trogir known also as 'little Venice' was definitely the highlight of the tour with its beautiful architecture and venetian-like canals.

Great experience!

Hi John,

I wanted to let you know that me and my girlfriend had a great time it Croatia last month.This holiday was just what we needed - to get away from the city, chill out on the white beaches and swim in the blue sea... so relaxing!

I have been on sailing holidays before and have to admit this trip was one of the best ones! In eight days I managed to see and learn so much with still enough time to relax in the sun. Krka Waterfalls were simply stunning!

I would highly recommend this sailing holiday.
