A traditional gulet cruise taking in the marvels of Montenegro's stunning Adriatic Coast – includes all travel, half board and a guided tour of Kotor

Discover the coastal charms and wonders of Montenegro, with an exceptional gulet cruise experience that takes you across a plethora of remarkable locations, all with the Adriatic Sea as a scintillating backdrop. The Adriatic Coast is something of a sailor's dream, with its peaceful conditions, historic towns, picturesque fishing villages, craggy islands and secluded sandy bays. On board a traditional mahogany and teak sailing ship, you’ll take to the clear blue seas for a bout of aquatic exploring and historic discoveries.

The Peal of the Adriatic cruise allows you to discover glittering blue bays and charming historic towns. Throughout this intimate experience, you’ll visit the most unique gems along the Adriatic Coast, including beautiful Kotor Bay with its climb of approximately 1,350 stairs to castle ruins and an awe-inspiring view, lively Budva, iconic Sveti Stefan, the charming villages around Tivat and the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Perast. Your ship will be either the Sadri Usta 1 or the Adaptepe IV, both traditional gulet ships.

Throughout your time onboard, you can also take advantage of the range of activities offered by staying on the water, like swimming, kayaking, snorkelling and fishing. The onboard chef is on hand to provide a freshly cooked breakfast and lunch daily, while evening drinks are served at the bar before heading out to find delectable regional delicacies for dinner.
