PRUKLJAN LAKE SAILING TOUR WITH VISITING MISTICAL ISLAND OF STIPANAC

Prukljan Lake is the setting of many legends inspired by the beauty and secrecy of nature. Connected to the Stipanac Island, is the folk legend of Gavan and his wife Gavanuša who demeaned a beggar by kicking him bread with her foot beneath the table, not knowing that he was an angel in disguise. For this harm, the Gavan Court, as well as Gavan and his wife, were sunk in the lake. Feel the spirit of the past admiring the still visible remains of the ancient church of Saint Stephen from the 12th century, from which the island got its name - Stipanac. During the boat ride, take a look at the depths and you will see the path at the bottom of the bay that once connected the island with the mainland (which, according to legend, was not an island at all). Look for some hidden sign of ancient life from the time of the ancient Romans in the protected area of the Prukljan Bay.

The setting – the sea. The time – March, April. Tuna hunt. In these months, tuna fish are smaller and move in herd so a lot of effort is required for a fish to bite the hook. The duration of the trip is three to five days. Sounds difficult? Big game fishing is all about teamwork. Big game fishing is unpredictable. You have to arm yourself with patience to the very end, and be prepared to act quickly. The final result will depend on the entire team. We will make sure your experience is exciting and comfortable, tiring and relaxing, tense and unforgettable. Every day from 9 am to 4 pm, with your smaller team of 3 to 4 people, you will fish on a boat with a skipper and all the necessary fishing gear.

TRADITIONAL SAILING

The wooden boat glides quietly on the surface of the sea while the sails easily bloat. The wind wants steal and guide it away, toward the open sea. In this effort, it cools and refreshes hot foreheads. Only a few sounds of wood and rope that creak in tension. We are in awe of the ease with which just a few pairs of hands keep everything in check, taming this beautiful sail. Master traditional sailing techniques on a traditional wooden boat. Familiarize yourself with the importance of a wooden boat for the islands and take part in one of the regattas on Latin sails. First, we will acquaint ourselves with a traditional boat, followed by the theoretical part of gaining an insight into the importance and history of a wooden sailboat on the islands and visiting the Betina Museum of Wooden Shipbuilding.

BIKE AND WINE

Dalmatian soil is mostly made of rock with little soil on top of it. But that little piece of soil is the essence of life which rewards hardworking people that cultivate it. Red Dalmatian soil, being first cleaned of stones which are then arranged into walls without binding material (called „suhozid“ meaning drywall), is incredibly fertile when irrigated and that is why Dalmatia is known for its olive grove and vineyards. Virgin olive oil, figs, grapes and wine are our most important and valued products and drywalls, creating both shelter for plants and incredible patterns in nature, are on UNESCO's list of the intangible good of humanity. Morinje bay is placed right behind of Šibenik's suburb so we ride on small field roads among olives, vineyards and small gardens. Morinje bay has always played an important role in agriculture of local population because of its brackish waters and underground sources of fresh water. It is a fruitful valley that has been cultivated even before The Roman Empire. The small climb will get us to vineyards situated on hill tops over Jadrtovac village.During the wine tasting you will be introduced to the long history of the wine making in this area and you will have a chance to taste the best wines of local variaties that has been internationally recognized and awarded. From vineyard we countinue to small village of Brodarica. On our way there we will cross Morinje bridge with magnificient view on Island of Krapanj. In Brodarica village we stop for refreshment and swimm (depending on weather conditions) and after the break we ride on the road next to the coast. On our way to Zablaće village we will also ride through the Amadria Park hotel resort which also makes an interesting ride. After Zablaće, the road leads us to St. Anthony channel with St. Nicolas fortress at its sea entrance. This monumental fortification has been built on small islet to prevent any possible attacks of The Otoman Empire from the sea on city of Šibenik and has recently been placed under the protection of UNESCO. It also served as film set for popular serial Game of Thrones that has been filmed in Šibenik as well as on some other locations in Croatia. After the brief visit we ride on nice winding path along the channel and under the pine trees to our next stop, U-shaped sea tunnel, built by axis forces during WW II for patrol boats which are localy known as „Hitler's eyes“ becasuse of its two entrances overlooking the channel. The atmosphere inside the tunnel resembles the atmosphere from James Bond movies. From 007 we take you to exploration in Indiana Jones style - this time it's a small hidden cave chappel used by hermits in The Middle Ages. After this adventerous break we climb two panoramic hills whit fantastic views on city of Šibenik, it's surrounding, channel and archipelago with numerous islands on the horizon. This is a must-photo-stop. At our final stage of the tour we ride on the opposite side of Šibenik bay and back to the city.

BIKE AND BOAT- ISLAND HOPPING

This unique tour is the ideal merge of modern and traditional attractions. It begins at the most beautiful and exciting sea channel on the Adriatic Sea - St. Anthony channel. This sea passage has always had special strategic role in controlling sea traffic in and out of Šibenik harbour so it was often referred to as "The defender of Šibenik". We will climb to panoramic hill top where we will enjoy unique view of the city of Šibenik and its surroundings together with numerous islands in the archipelago and get the real sense of where we are in time and place in the Šibenik region. This is the ideal photo opportunity for capturing me-mories and taking them back home. We are also going to discover the so called ˝Hitler’s eyes˝- a military sea tunnel from World War II. This is the place where fantasy is born as it is very similar to the James Bond movie set. From 007 we take you to nearby exploration in Indiana Jones style to the small cave chapel located in a vicinity which was used by hermits in middle ages.We continue on fairy tale winding path along the channel and its small bays and beaches under the shaddow of the pine trees to get to the St. Nicholas fortress for brief visit. This fortification is placed on an islet at the channel entrance from the sea side and was built in the 16th century for the defense from the Ottoman Empire. Now it is under the UNESCO protection and was recently used as a set for the famous and very popular Game of Thrones. Then we will board the boat, your private yacht and time machine BIKE AND BOAT- ISLAND HOPPING 105 for that day, as the island Prvić is small and still not overcrowded with tourists so it gives a taste of true, nowdays mostly lost, Dalmatian way of life. This nostalgic feeling is emphasized by the fact that cars are not allowed on the island and all of traffic is done by old, squeaky tractors. We will explore the island and its picturesque villages by bikes and refresh ourselves in some of the hidden bays enjoying privacy. The visit to a center dedicated to an inventer of parachute, Faust Vrančić, is also possible.After island Prvic we hop to Zlarin, the nearby island also known as the ˝Island of Corals˝. Zlarin is a miraculously peaceful, silent and a very green island whose inhabitants were known for their skill to find and extract sea corals using boats specific for that region, "latinsko idro" (Latin Sail) which can still be seen in their small har-bour. After a ride through this old place and refreshment provided by the crystal clear sea, we will have lunch in a very intimate atmosphere at the restaurant serving only the best homemade local meat and sea food. After an exciting day your stomach will know how to thank you for such delicacies. After dinner you can relax on fly deck of the yacht with glass of wine from one of the Šibenik's best vinaries - Testament. All sweet water, fruits and wine are included in price so do not worrie about dehidratation. We sail back to St. Nicolas fortress and finish our trip through the channel of St. Anhony with spectacular entrance into the port of Šibenik.
