Port Name Description
Venice has been known as the "Queen of the Adriatic", "City of Water", "City of Masks", "City of Bridges", "The Floating City", and "City of Canals". Luigi Barzini, writing in The New York Times, described it as "undoubtedly the most beautiful city built by man". Venice has also been described by the Times Online as being one of Europe's most romantic cities. Founded in the 5th century, the city stretches across 118 small islands in the marshy Venetian Lagoon along the Adriatic. In 1987 Venice and its Lagoon was inscribed as an UNESCO Heritage site. SeaDream typically docks at the San Basilio pier after navigating by the famous St. Mark’s Square down the grand canal. With its yacht stature, SeaDream vessels are amongst the very few commercial vessels that can navigate this famous waterway. SeaDream does offer Land Adventures when overnighting. You can also contact our destination specialists should you need a private arrangement, transfer or hotel recommendation.
The island of Rab, located just off the northern Croatian coast in the Adriatic Sea, is rich in cultural heritage and cultural-historical monuments. The town, encircled by 12-century medieval walls, offers beautiful views of the harbor, a plethora of churches and four campaniles that are still the town’s most conspicuous landmarks. Visit the Church of Justina with its museum of sacral art, the Church of St. John the Baptist, the Prince’s Palace or the sculptures of Draga. The island is very popular with tourists and families for its beautiful nature, beaches, heritage and many cultural events.
The town of Sibenik is situated in one of the most well-protected natural harbors on the Croatian coast. Your SeaDream yacht navigates in to the harbor past numerous islands in the archipelago and through a channel that is, in parts, less than 500 feet wide. While Sibenik is less well known than Dubrovnik and Split, it has its own personality and some great things to see and enjoy. Sibenik's St. James Cathedral is one of the marvels of the Dalmatian Coast and is Unesco World Heritage listed as of November 2000. In the old town, little streets lead to attractive squares where modern shops blend into the fine and stylish architecture of vanished centuries. Nearby is the Krka National Park with its river and numerous waterfalls and cascades. SeaDream Land Adventures offer you an orientation of the city as well as venturing to the Krka National Park & Waterfalls as well as the neighboring town of Zadar and Liquor Tasting.
Hvar is a Croatian island in the Adriatic Sea. The island of Hvar is somewhat unusual as it is blessed with a large fertile coastal plain, and fresh water springs. Its hillsides are covered in pine forests, with vineyards, olive groves, fruit orchards and lavender fields in the agricultural areas. The climate is characterized by mild winters, and warm summers with many hours of sunshine. Guests have an option to kayak down the coastline on one of our land adventures or take an independent hike up to the fortress to have some incredible views of the picturesque harbor. You also have an option to bike across the island to Starigrad and meet up with the other guests on the land adventure called “The best of Both Worlds”.

Dubrovnik (Pearl of the Adriatic) is one of the most prominent destinations in the Adriatic Sea. It lies in the region of Dalmatia and was awarded World Unesco Heritage status in 1979. The population is approximately 43,000 and is considered to be among the 10 best medieval walled cities in the world. SeaDream anchors off the walled city as a port of call and tenders directly to the town gate. If you check the land adventures tab you will see that there are many different options to consider in this incredible town. Dubrovnik is also an embarkation point on select voyages. On these occasions the yacht is docked at the cruise terminal.
Kotor is a coastal town in Montenegro. The old Mediterranean port of Kotor is surrounded by an impressive city wall built by the Republic of Venice and the Venetian influence remains dominant among the architectural influences. In 1979 the Bay of Kotor, City of Kotor and the surrounding territory have been listed in the UNESCO Heritage as a Cultural Site. SeaDream usually navigates close by the small islands of St. George and Our Lady of the Reef. The Bay of Kotor stretches 28 km and is one of the most indented parts of the Adriatic Sea. It is sometimes called the southern-most fjord in Europe (though it is actually a submerged river canyon called a ria). SeaDream typically docks steps away from the town. SeaDream has arranged a few different Yachting Land Adventures. One of them is a walking discovery and the other will show you the heritage and countryside of Montenegro. For the active guests, there’s incredible biking along the coast as well as a hike up to the fortress. On occasion, SeaDream may dock in the bay and tender directly to the town. We regret that watersports are not allowed in this protected area.
This attractively situated port and seaside town lies in the very south of Albania, close to the border with Greece. The Greek island of Corfu can be clearly seen across the channel. The town is built back from a small beach with a pleasant palm-fringed esplanade. Located close by are not one, but two different UNESCO World Heritage sites! The first is the ancient city of Butrint which is now a national park where the remains of 3,000 years of occupation are piled on top of one another. The other site is the town of Gjirokastra, where the old town is a rare example of a well-preserved Ottoman town.
SeaDream yachts anchor in the bay of Giardini Naxos and offer fantastic views of recently awarded UNESCO Natural Site of Mt. Etna (2013) as well as Taormina perched on the cliffside. Shuttle bus service has been arranged to transport guests from Giardini Naxos to the entrance gate of Taormina town. For the SeaDream active guests, office led hikes and bike rides could also transport you to Taormina town or continue up to Castelmola which provides amazing views of the surrounding areas. Perhaps the “must do” adventure here would be to ascent Mt. Etna with your fellow SeaDreamers. Kindly check the Land Adventure tab for the specifics. Other options include an incredible and authentic feast at the Godfather Villa. This “SeaDream Excusive” Land Adventure requires a high minimum to operate but it’s worth every penny! As we are anchored and if conditions allow, we will offer water sports both in the morning and in the afternoon. Multo Bene!
On certain routes, SeaDream has planned to stop late evening so guests can view and hear the power and beauty of this active volcano. Stromboli is one of 8 small islands in the Aeolian group in Tyrrhenian Sea. It’s located just off the north coast of Sicily, containing one of the three active volcanoes in Italy. It has been almost constantly erupting in some manor for the past 200 years. Some refer to this island as the "Lighthouse of the Mediterranean".
Positano is one of the most picturesque villages along the Unesco awarded Amalfi Coast (Costiera Amalfitana), in Campania, Italy. The town itself is perched on an enclave on the face of a hill and winds down towards the sea. This incredible setting has been enjoyed by writers, movie stars and millions of tourist each year. John Steinbeck visited in the 50s and stated “Positano bites deep. It is a dream place that isn’t quite real when you are there and becomes beckoningly real after you have gone.” The movie Under the Tuscan Sun and several others have been shot on location here. Besides the incredibly romantic vies, it offers excellent shopping, nice beach, hiking opportunities and a few world recognized and award winning hotels such as Le Sirenuse and Il San Pietro di Positano amongst others. As large coaches cannot navigate down to the pier, only private arrangements are available here. You can book a very nice sedan or van to take you to the neighboring villages or even to Pompeii. As SeaDream anchors just of the pier, you may have the opportunity to access the yachts marina and water toys (conditions and local approval permitting).
Capri may very well be the most popular island on the planet? It is a beautiful Italian island in the Tyrrhenian Sea just off the Sorrentine Peninsula, on the south side of the Bay of Naples. Capri town is the island's main population center. The island has two harbors, Marina Piccola and Marina Grande (the main port of the island). The separate village of Anacapri is located high on the hills to the west. From there visitors can continue up to the highest point Mt. Solero. Besides some simply amazing shopping boutiques, the island has so much to offer including the ever popular Grotta Azzura, Villa Jovis, Giardini di Augusto, Certosa di San Giacomo, Villa San Michele di Axel Munthe and the uniquely shaped Faraglioni rocks. SeaDream has put together most of the sights into one adventure called “Discovering the Island of Love” Kindly check the Land Adventures tab for more information. There’s also some great hikes available on the island, check with the activities team on board for more information.
One of the largest and busiest ports in the Mediterranean, Civitavecchia is the gateway to Rome. Rome's incredible history spans over 2,500 years. Rome has been awarded on of the most-visited cities in the world. Its historic center is listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. Monuments and museums such as the Vatican Museums and the Colosseum are amongst the world's 50 most visited destinations. With its unique size SeaDream yachts are generally the first vessel in line at Civitavecchia. On some days, nine ships of various sizes can be seen in this busy port of call. It has come to our attention that some local taxi drivers at the airport may tell you that you can embark earlier than the scheduled 2:00 PM. Please note that this information is false and we kindly ask you to make your arrangements accordingly in order to avoid arriving at the pier prior to 2:00 PM. We thank you for your understanding. Some limo and transfer companies found on the web may not have the proper permits to enter the inner port area. Please double check with your service provider to see if they can actually take you all the way to the yacht. In some cases you may be dropped off at the port entrance and would need to take a shuttle bus with your luggage.

Capri

Blue Grotto Junket

Touristy, kitschy and fun! For those that "must-see" this well-known and visited grotto, SeaDream has made some special arrangements for you. A local motorboat pulls alongside the SeaDream gangway to transfer you, with a guide, to the famous Grotta Azzurra. You'll zip along the northern coast of the island before arriving at the grotto entrance, where SeaDream guests get priority over the usual tourist crowds. Transfer to one of the small rowboats that enter the grotto and the most extraordinary turquoise water. The luminescent glow of the cave walls reflecting in the seawater is quite a sight. Transfer back to Marina Grande on Capri, where you are free to explore the island on your own.

Streets of Rab (visit to Rab Crossbowmen Association)

The small town of Rab was once encircled by medieval walls in the 12th century. Today, parts of the walls can still be seen along the cliffs, and in a few places close to the harbor. The historic town was founded in Roman times along a narrow tongue of land, so when travelers approached from the sea, they could see it proudly atop the head of the bay. Many were impressed by the town’s ancient ramparts towering above the sea, and admired the sails of numerous ships in her sheltered harbor as well as the four campaniles, which are still the town’s most conspicuous landmarks. Rab is truly a town of rare charm packed with fine old houses and other interesting buildings.

Your guided walking adventure will show you some of the finest features of this lovely town, including a view of the Cathedral, a three nave basilica dedicated to the 12th century St. Mary. Further in the town, you will visit the Church of Justina with its fine Museum of Sacral Art. Along the walk you will also have the opportunity to see the finest buildings in town, including the Church of St. John the Baptist and ruins of the ancient basilica, the Princes Palace, and the sculptures of Draga and Kaliforni in the town’s main square, just to mention a few. Visit to the Association of Rab Crossbowmen
The Association of the Crossbowmen of the Island of Rab was founded on 15 February 1995 while the Knight Games were restored in the same year, precisely on October 28. Since then, as many as 143 tournaments of knights have been held on the island of Rab, in many Croatian towns and abroad.

The association includes 156 members divided into groups such as crossbowmen, trumpeters, buglers, flag bearers, dancers, music players, gunners and squires. The games take place in the town of Rab and in some twin towns such as San Marino and Königsbrunn on Victory Day (May 9), Statehood Day (June 25),St. Christopher’s Day (July 27) and Feast of Assumption (August 15).

The costumes of the crossbowmen and trumpeters of Rab were designed by costume designer Dijana Boureek of the Croatian National Theatre of Zagreb based on a scientific study of Dr Jelka Radauš Ribarić. The crossbows were made by the crossbowmen themselves with assistance of crossbowmen of San Marino (balestrieri). They weigh from 18 to 25 kg. The target (cocoon-like) should be hit from a distance of 36.5 m by an arrow weighing 0.15 kg. The flags symbolize the fraternities of Rab, i.e. the counties and town of Rab, whereas the leading flag is the flag of the Republic of Croatia. The trumpets were designed in Italian workshops at special request while the canons were made in Croatian workshops.

Tastes of Rab

Enjoy a guided walk through the town before you will reach your bus to start a scenic drive to the Vilma bakery. The Vilma Bakery was founded in 1996 by Brna Vilma and family. Back then there was only one employee while today there are ten or more during the peak season. For the last ten years it is hard to find a tourist fair representing Rab or festivities where the famous Cake of Rab is not served. This unique delicacy comes in most cases from Vilma Bakery. The late Božo Sokolić was a legendary baker in Rab and Vilma's teacher after he revealed an old recipe he got from Benedictine Monastery nuns. It is the nuns who helped save the recipe intact and available for generations to come. The cake originated in Venice and was immediately accepted on the island of Rab as it was allegedly rich with almonds back in the time. See the production process and enjoy the cake before the adventure continues to Natura Rab. Natura Rav production is a family-run business. They see their prospects in mobile ecological bee-keeping on the southern part of Rab island in the village of Barbat and on the sea-facing slopes of the mountain Kapela and the nature park Velebit. The farming house, with its space and technology, integrates the process of gathering, enriching and packing honey and other agricultural produce. Enjoy a visit to the factory and taste the Bio products before the adventure continues to the Juresa winery.

Sarande (Butrint)

Gjirokastra – UNESCO Awarded Ottoman Jewel

The UNESCO World Heritage Site of Gjirokastra is situated in an historic landscape unchanged in centuries and framed by snow-capped mountains, about one hour drive from Sarande. The old city is famous for its hundreds of Ottoman-style tower houses with distinctive stone roofs, wooden balconies and whitewashed stone walls. Dominated by a vast castle, the second largest in the Balkans, Gjirokastra is a magical city with a rich past. From feudal stronghold to Ottoman jewel, the city was an intellectual center and has inspired many poets, authors and artists. Your guided adventure will take you around the network of cobbled streets that climb steeply out of the bazaar taking you back in time. A visit to the Medieval Castle will expose you to stories of medieval rulers and communist atrocities alike. The commanding situation of the castle (guarding one of the main North-South routes of the Balkans) indicates that it must have been since prehistoric times the site of a fort or fortress. Crusaders passed by, looting, raping and pillaging, in the 11th century. One gruesome legend recounts that when the Ottomans invaded in the 14th century Princess Argyro jumped from the highest tower of the castle with her very young son, to escape capture by the Turks. Lunch will be served in a spectacular garden location in the center of the old town with great views of the castle. Your next stop will be at the Ethnographic Museum, which was the former home of the Communist Dictator Enver Hoxha. The old Ottoman houses do not have balconies, but they are richly endowed with well-proportioned windows. Many have elegant verandas. You will see how the old families used to live in the town as you visit the Zekate and Angonati tower houses. You will take back to the port many impressions of this unique historical city.

UNESCO Heritage Site of Butrint

The easily-defended site of Butrint has made it a magnet for occupation for at least the last 3,000 years. The result is a kaleidoscope of civilizations, all built on top of one another; Hellenistic, Roman, Byzantine and Venetian. Your Land Adventure will start with a panoramic drive from the port of Sarande through rural Albanian countryside, giving beautiful views of the Park from the South-East side of Lake Butrint. Along the way, the guide will give you an introduction to local history and the culture of Albania. According to one of the many legends of the first settlement of Butrint, in the 12th century B.C., Helenus, son of King Priam of Troy, after the fall of his city, sailed west to establish a new settlement. On his journey he landed in the island of Corfu and decided to sacrifice a bull to Apollo. The wounded bull escaped and swam across to the mainland. Helenus followed by ship and, taking this event at an auspicious sign from Apollo, built there a smaller version of Troy, giving to it the name Voutrotos, which means in the ancient Greek language "the wounded bull". Inhabited since prehistoric times, the area of Butrint has been the site of a Greek colony, a Roman city, a Byzantine port and has fallen under the influence of the Normans, Venetians and Ottomans. Following a period of prosperity under the Byzantines, then a brief domination by the Venetians, the city was abandoned in the late middle ages after marshes formed in the area. The present archaeological site is a collection of ruins representing each period in the city's development. The excavations in Butrint started before Second World War. An Italian archaeological group headed by Luigi Ugolini made their excavations in the period 1928-1939. More recently, the Albanian Institute of Archaeology has undertaken the excavations with the assistance of the Butrint Foundation founded by the English Lord Rothschild and Lord Sainsbury in 1993. The site has been certified as a UNESCO World Heritage. At the site, your guided walking exploration will take you through the city of Butrint where you can admire monuments of many different civilizations. This will lead you up to the Acropolis overlooking the site and a short visit will be made at the Museum, refurbished and reopened in 2005. Refreshments will be served, before you re-board the coaches for our drive back to the port.

Town of Zadar and Liquor Tasting

The Zadar area was already settled in the Neolithic period, and in the 9th c. B.C. the peninsula was occupied by an Illyrian people, the Liburni. The town is first referred to in Greek sources of the 4th c. B.C. under the name of Idissa and already in the 1st c. B.C. it was taken by the Romans who called it Jadera. Your SeaDream Land Adventure begins from the pier and soon you will find yourself in the heart of this magnificent Old Town. Your walking adventure includes a visit to the Cathedral of St. Anastasia, the finest example of Romanesque architecture in Zadar and which has a notable W front of 1324. It is dedicated to St. Anastasia, whose stone sarcophagus is in the apse to the left of the high altar. Further on your way you will pass close to the Church of St. Donatus which is believed to have been built by Bishop Donatus on Roman foundations at the beginning of the 9th century. This is a most monumental church on the East side of the Adriatic, it is circular in plan, with three naves. To the eastern of the Forum you come to the 16th c. St Mary Church with a Romanesque bell-tower built at the beginning of the 12th c. by the Hungarian – Croatian King Koloman. On the upper floor of the convent, open to the public are rooms containing a collection of goldsmith´s work, relics and other valuable items. Your Land Adventure will end with a Wine, Cheese and Marascino Liqueur Tasting at Arsenal Tavern situated in the Old Town of Zadar at the vicinity of the pier area. Liqueur production in Zadar is almost 400 years old. The most known liqueur is Maraschino a bittersweet, clear liqueur flavored with Marasca cherries, which are grown in Dalmatia, Croatia, mostly around the city of Zadar. The liqueur's distinctive flavor comes from the Marasca cherries, and the crushed cherry pits lend an almond-like flavor to Maraschino. Honey is also part of the ancient recipe. The distillate is allowed to mature for two years in Finnish ash wood vats (because this wood does not lend its color to the liqueur even after many years of maturing), and is then diluted and sugared. It is typically bottled in a straw-coated bottle. The recipe for this liqueur was created by the apothecaries of the Dominican monastery at Zara, now Zadar, in Dalmatia, at the beginning of the 16th century, it was known under the name of Rosolj (Rožolj, Rosolio), which came from the word "ros solis"- "the sun dew". In the 18th century this liqueur was named Maraschino, as it was produced from the essence of ripe fruits of the cherry marasca, as well as from the leaves of its sprigs. In the agrarian regions of Dalmatia, Rosolj survived as the name of a traditional home made liqueur made from marasca cherries. At the beginning, this noble liqueur of delicate taste to which medicinal effects were also attributed, was available only to the privileged. With the appearance of the first manufacturing distillers at Zara in the 17th century (Rota, Mola and Calcengio), the secret of Rosolj (Maraschino) taste could be spread. In 18th century when the industrial production of this liqueur began, Maraschino set out from Zara and "sailed" into ever more important European ports and major cities. Soon it was accepted and favored by all European courts (Viennese, Berlin, the English court, the Bavarian, Italian, Belgium, and Danish courts) and later on Maraschino spread to America, Canada, Australia, South America and to South Africa. Maraschino was also admired by one of the biggest conquerors of the 19th century, Napoleon Bonaparte, who specially enjoyed it after dinner or supper. The French kings, Louis XVIII, Charles X and Louis Philippe as well as the Czar of Russia Nicholas I admired Maraschino too. The British king George IV sent to Zadar a naval fleet to collect a hundred Maraschino cases for the Royal court at London and for the governors of Malta and Corfu. In 1871 on the request of the English queen Victoria, Maraschino was loaded on the English ships at Zadar port. In 1887, namely on September 26th, on his way through Zadar, the Prince of Wales who later become the king George V, personally visited Zadar liqueur factory and on that occasion ordered a considerable quantity of this specialty. In 1999, Croatian National Tourist Office declared MARASCHINO on the list of authentic Croatian Souvenirs.

First visit is made to the Cappuccini Church, whose crypt houses the so-called catacombs with 37 mummified bodies in wooden boxes of friars and noble people who lived there in the 18th and 19th centuries. After a short stop at "Bar Vitelli", start the a slow walking tour along the village's main street which climbs on the hill, with several Churches of 15th and 16th centuries (Chiesa Madre, Santa Lucia, San Michele ), ruins of a Norman castle and a magnificent view of the Sicilian coast-line, Strait of Messina, Italian mainland and villages perched on the surroundings hills.- Afterwards you will proceed to Forza d'Agro' ( at 30 minutes drive), a charming little village overlooking the Arab-Norman castle of Capo Sant'Alessio and the coastline towards Messina. In 1990, Al Pacino and Sophia Coppola came here when they shot some scenes of the film "The Godfather III". From the main square a lane leads up to the close Gothic-Catalan portal in front of the Church of S. Agostino (known as "Triade"), with a pleasant 15th c. facade. Before driving back to the SeaDream pier, you will also have an opportunity to see the Baroque Mother Church.

Romantic Gondola Evening Serenade

Since Venice began there have always been gondoliers. By the 11th century most were in private service with patrician families. There were about 10,000 gondoliers in Venice in the 16th century, and today there are fewer than 400. Great skill is required to steer a boat through the narrow canals of Venice. Each gondola is 36 feet long, 4 feet wide and weighs 1,100 pounds. A gondolier serves a 10-year apprenticeship under a padrone before getting his own permit. A licensee must be native-born, and, since new licenses are not issued, must wait until a colleague gives up a license before getting his own. Their union offers free courses in foreign languages, art history and the history of Venice, but the gondoliers are not given singing lessons - every Italian seems to have a natural talent for song. Join us for a romantic tour through the canals of Venice. Riding four per gondola, you will traverse the smaller, less trafficked canals, enjoying the soft lights and balconied waterfront homes, and be serenaded as you glide along.
