I recently cruised the coast of Croatia on the Dalmatian Elegance with Insight Vacations tour. The boat we sailed on, The Avangard, is a small deluxe yacht that only holds 36 guests. The ship includes areas such as dining room with a full bar and the large upper deck were you can take in the beautiful sunrises and sunsets. They also have a Jacuzzi on the top deck if you just would like to relax for a little while.
The Galapagos are a small archipelago off the western coast of South America. From shorelines draped in mangroves, to rugged volcanic rocks, no two islands are the same. The Galapagos is famed as an incredible place for wildlife sighting opportunities because of the islandâs isolation. The uniquely diverse local wildlife never developed a fear of humans, so travelers can get up close and personal with giant tortoises, marine iguanas, Darwinâs finches, blue-footed boobies, and small Galapagos penguins.
How do you like to see the world? Do you dream of a relaxing day of sipping frozen drinks next the pool or do you dream of something more immersive? Staying active with action-packed sailings is the perfect blend of both worlds. Tour companies like Intrepid, Contiki, and G Adventures offer active adventure sailing that will keep you on the edge of your seat and away from the crowds, while only unpacking once.
