Ports

  • Venice

    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.

  • Split

    Split is one of the oldest cities in the area and the second largest city behind Dubrovnik in Croatia. The Diocletian’s Palace is not only listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site but is also considered to be one of the world’s most impressive Roman monuments. This city is believed to be over 1,700 years old, while archaeological research relates the settling to the ancient Greek colony of Aspalathos (6th century BC) establishes the city as being several hundred years older. SeaDream offers three unique land adventure opportunities; Rafting on the Cetina River, the Split Archipelago by speedboat and naturally the Historic Split overview that included the Diocletian Palace as well as the Mestrovic Gallery.

  • Korcula

    Korčula may be the actual birth place of Marco Polo! This is an island in the Adriatic Sea, in Southern Dalmatia and is considered by our guests as one of their favorites. One activity offered sells out every time so book early the Buggy Safari. As SeaDream typically anchors off Korcula expect the water toys to be used from the marina platform. As the island is relatively flat, this is a great biking destination as well.

  • Dubrovnik

    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

    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.

  • Sarande (Butrint), Albania

    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.

  • Itea (Delphi)

    Itea is a small town situated on the north coast of the Gulf of Corinth, 2 km west of Kirra, 8 km southwest of Delphi. The town has a nice beach along with some shops, cafes and restaurants. It allows the closest access to the incredible sight of Delphi which is within the top three archeological attractions in Greece and in 1987 was inscribed as a UNESCO Heritage Site. It is believed the Zeus wanted to find the center of the Earth so he sent two eagles flying from the eastern and western extremities and where they met was Delphi – becoming the “navel/center of the earth”. SeaDream has arranged the very best guides and vehicles from Athens to further enhance this incredible visit. Your guided visit highlights the ancient Sanctuary of Apollo, where Pythia, the celebrated Oracle dwelt, the Temple of Apollo, the Sacred Way, the amphitheater, the best preserved stadium of Greece, and the Castalia Spring, where in ancient days the pilgrims had to wash before they were allowed to consult the Oracle. In the Delphi Museum, see such treasures as the Omphalos, which marked the center of the world, and the magnificent bronze Charioteer, one of the finest pieces surviving from the 5th century BC. After the museum there will be free time to visit the village of Delphi. SeaDream has the option of docking along the small pier in Itea or anchoring off to provide water sports options. This is dependent on availability as well as the amount of guests visiting the archeological site.

  • Corinth Canal (Transit)

    So narrow! So dramatic! You'll understand why SeaDream says "expect the unexpected" as your yacht transits the Corinth Canal. The canal was first completed in 1893, despite previous attempts from ancient times; the first plans being from 602BC. The Roman emporer Nero actually started construction in 67AD, making the first cut himself with a golden pick. The canal we transit is 6.3 kilometres (3.9 mi) in length. Before the canal, ships sailing between the Aegean and the Adriatic had to circumnavigate the Peloponnese Peninsula adding about 185 nautical miles to their voyage.

  • Mykonos

    Mykonos is one of the most visited Greek Islands. It is part of the Cyclades group and lies between Tinos, Syros, Paros and Naxos. The island spans an area of 85.5 square kilometres (33.0 sq mi) and rises to an elevation of 341 metres (1,119 feet) at its highest point. Mykonos is so incredibly beautiful, it is not surprising that it has become one of the most desired destinations in the world. When you also add the cosmopolitan lifestyle, the sophisticated nightlife and the historic treasures of the nearby Unesco Awarded Delos you’ll have the recipe for an unforgettable holiday. SeaDream generally anchors just of the famous windmills and tenders directly to the old town. Guests have a few organized options including the Sacred Island of Delos, others may simply want to explore the island’s incredible beaches, boutiques, clubs and churches independently.

  • Santorini

    Santorini also known as Thera is a volcanic island located in the southern Aegean Sea, about 200 km (120 mi) southeast from Greece's mainland. Santorini is essentially what remains of an enormous volcanic explosion, destroying the earliest settlements on what was formerly a single island, and leading to the creation of the current geological caldera.

  • Hydra

    There is one main town on Hydra, known simply as "Hydra port". It consists of a crescent-shaped harbor, around which is centered a strand of restaurants, shops, markets, and galleries that cater to tourists and locals (Hydriots). Steep stone streets lead up and outwards from the harbor area. The charm of Hydra town certainly lies in her rich history, beautiful port and waterfront unspoiled by motorized vehicles. The island offers a rugged charm and some spectacular scenes, and makes the perfect place for some self-exploration.

  • Athens (Piraeus)

    Athens is the capital as well as the largest city in Greece. It is one of the world's oldest cities, with its recorded history spanning around 3,400 years. The heritage of the classical era is still evident in the city, represented by a number of ancient monuments and works of art, the most famous of all being the Parthenon. Athens is home to two UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the Acropolis of Athens and the medieval Daphni Monastery. SeaDream will embark guests from the port of Piraeus. Should you desire a private arrangement, transfer, or other local service, please see the Land Adventures tab for our destination specialists information.

  • Santorini - Akrotiri Archaeological Site & Oia Village

    Description

    On this land adventure, you will have an incredible opportunity to visit one of the most important prehistoric settlements of the Aegean, Akrotiri Archaeological site and the picturesque village of Oia. Could Akrotiri really be the lost city of Atlantis? One of the reasons Santorini has attracted the world’s attention is the excavation at Akrotiri, which reclaimed a whole prehistoric Minoan city from the volcanic ash. The prehistoric site of Akrotiri is on the south-western tip of the island and was discovered in 1967 by Professor Spyros Marinatos as it was buried by the widespread Theran eruption in the middle of the second millennium BC. The excavations brought into light a remarkably well-preserved site with two and three-story homes decorated with marvelous wall paintings and frescoes, an advanced drainage system and many interesting objects, artworks, potteries and furniture which give a picture of a society which was very well organized and at the peak of prosperity. This was interrupted suddenly by the eruption of the volcano, which buried the entire city. An ambitious modern bio-climatic roof top structure protects this important archaeological settlement where excavation works are still in progress. Your SeaDream Land Adventure continues crossing the entire island and after a 30-minute drive, you will reach the northeast part of the island and its most picturesque town, Oia. Once a major fishing harbor, it is now the calmest place on the island. Built high up on the ridge of red rocks it offers breathtaking views of the blue Aegean. You leave your coaches for a stroll around the narrow streets with the old beautiful houses and the tiny picturesque shops. Enjoy the breathtaking views of the caldera cliff and wander in the narrow streets for shopping or a cup of coffee during your free time in the village. Returning to Fira town you can either take the cable car down to the port or wander around the narrow streets with the various shops and take a later cable car. For those SeaDream Active guests, you can also walk down the path back to Skala Fira (port). Now that the site has re-opened, we highly recommend you join us on this wonderful yachting land adventure.

    Notes

    The site may be closed on Mondays although SeaDream generally can get exemptions. Kindly double check with the Club Director on board.

  • Venice - Romantic Gondola Evening Serenade

    Description

    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.

  • Itea (Delphi) - The UNESCO Site of St Lucas Monastery & Arachova Village

    Description

    SeaDream has arranged an excellent alternative for those guests who may have already been to see the oracle at Delphi. St Loukas, is a historic walled Monastery and has been awarded Unesco's World Heritage listing. You and your fellow guests will enjoy a wonderful walk around the picturesque streets of Arahova traditional village. From your SeaDream Yacht board your deluxe a/c motor coach at Itea port and after passing by Delphi & Arachova villages, you will arrive at the St Lucas monastery. This incredible site is an historic walled monastery and one of the most important monuments of Middle Byzantine architecture and art. It was founded in the early 10th century by the hermit St. Lucas, whose relics are kept in the monastery to this day. The main shrine of the monastery is the tomb of St. Lucas, originally situated in the vault, but later placed at the juncture of the two churches, the church of Theotokos and the Catholic Church which is the oldest in the complex tentatively dated to 1011-1012. Following your visit to the monastery you proceed to Arachova. Arachova is a traditional mountain village of 3,000 inhabitants with its quaint houses built up on the north slopes of Mount Parnassos and at an altitude from 2,700 to 3,600 feet. In 2000 B.C. Homer mentioned in the Iliad two famous generals who took part in the Trojan War Epistrophos and Schedias from the old towns of Anemoria and Kiparissos. These old towns were situated around where Arachova stands today. Later, in about 334 B.C. Philip the 2nd king of Macedonia destroyed both towns and their populations were dispersed over the hills until over the years one new town, Arachova, was built. Today the 'jewel' of Parnassos Arachova remains vital because it keeps its' traditions alive and the residents remain simple and hospitable. From the first moment you will feel a different wind blowing up here, and understand why the locals work so hard to upkeep the areas' natural beauty! Browse through its narrows streets with the numerous souvenir and local products shops before your return to the yacht.

  • Dubrovnik - Traditional Dubrovnik

    Description

    This is an opportunity to explore the beautiful natural setting of the green and fertile Konalve valley. Scenic drive through the small and picturesque villages will first take you to the village of Ljuta where you will visit Old Mill called Mlinica Dvori which is still in function today. Here you will be able to see demonstration of flour production using traditional methods where the water power stone mill. There is a system of watermills and stamp mills built on river Ljuta which consisted of eight watermills for flour, two watermills for oil and three stamp mills. When the Dubrovnik Republic bought Konavle, there were four mills on the upper stream of the river. After 1550, the system called “lower mills” was built and has been preserved until today. The functioning of the mills was based on a canal system, and some of them were driven by three aqueducts. Most of the buildings were on the western bank apart from the Đivanović stamp mill, which was on the eastern bank. The mill system was extremely important for the economy of Konavle and the Republic as a whole. The river source and the upper stream is under protection of the Government as a park of nature, whereas the watermill is protected as a cultural monument. Upon visiting Watermills and Stamp Mills continue your trip toward Gruda Village where Antonia Ruskovic keep tradition of small ancient handcraft of silk production. Silk is one of the oldest textile fibers known to mankind. During the Roman Empire, it was sold for its weight in gold. Here in Konavle Valley, near Dubrovnik, women keep alive the ancient craft of silk production, not for profit but for the sake of tradition. The silk thread produced here is mostly used for embroidering the beautiful national costume of the Konavle region. In the 1990s, during the war in Croatia, the Konavle Valley was occupied by hostile forces and many of its houses were sacked and burned down. Along with the houses, hundreds and hundreds of handmade national costumes were lost. After the war ended, the women of Konavle decided to start from scratch so that they could leave a piece of their beautiful heritage for future generations. They started making the costumes even when they were still refugees. Several volunteer groups were formed to help. This Cruise with Purpose excursion enables you to share in this magnificent cultural endeavor as you produce a silk thread in the age-old, traditional manner. The thread you produce will be used to embroider new costumes. Listen to an explanation of the whole process, from cocoon boiling, to thread reeling, dyeing, plying, reeling, weaving, and embroidering. Enjoy the hospitality of a host in the village and connect with some of this ancient country's profound cultural values as you actively participate in their rebirth and restoration. Upon this very unique experience continue your trip toward Dubrovnik for the guided tour of the Old Town.

  • Split - Game of Thrones in Split

    Description

    Croatia has gained its popularity in last couple of years, not only because of its beauty, historical architecture and natural wonders, but also because of HBO’s Game of Thrones series that was filmed in several Croatian cities. It seems Croatia offers everything the crew needs, as the number of filming locations in Croatia grow every year. Visit the Split locations appearing in the fourth season of Game of Thrones. All the scenes with Daenarys Targaryen and her Unsullied Army this season were filmed in Dalmatia, precisely Split region. If you were wondering where does all the mountainous terrain and breathtaking views come from, we are going to take you there. You will start with Klis Fortress, which is located just a short drive from Split. Klis is a medieval fortress situated above a village bearing the same name, near the city of Split. From its origin as a small stronghold built by the ancient Illyrian tribe Dalmatae, becoming a royal castle that was the seat of many Croatian kings, to its final development as a large fortress during the Ottoman wars in Europe, Klis Fortress has guarded the frontier, being lost and re-conquered several times throughout its more than two thousand year-long history. Due to its location on a pass that separates the mountains Mosor and Kozjak, the fortress served as a major source of defense in Dalmatia, especially against the Ottoman advance, and has been a key crossroad between the Mediterranean belt and the Balkan rear. In the modern times, this fortress has been a filming location for Danaerys’s stronghold. Upon the visit to Klis fort, embark your coach and continue driving towards Dugopolje region in Split. A visit to Vranjaca cave with guide will give you an insight of the pass ways and filming locations for the 5th season of the popular TV Show. Vranjaca was discovered in 1903, is 65m deep and was created millions of years ago by an underground river. The cave offers cool respite from the summer heat. After a short drive you will arrive to Antonica Mill. This mill is the last mill on Zrnovica River that is still in function, and has been working continuously for last 100 years, although it is presumed that the mill is over 500 years old. Flour is still produced over there. If you want to learn how the people traditionally lived here, this is a great opportunity, as you will be able to see how bread was made in the old days without electricity and modern appliances. That bread will be a part of your lunch served in the wonderful surroundings of the mill. After your tasty lunch, re-board the coach and head back to Split. Next you will re-board the coach and go towards the town of Split, more precisely, you will visit Diocletian’s Cellars, built in 4th century and also one of the filming locations of the fourth season of Game of Thrones. During the time of the emperor, the basement was largely used for storage of foodstuff and wine. Actually, the remnant of a large press, which was used to turn the grapes into wine, is still visible today showcasing that Diocletian surely enjoyed a glass or two of his own Dalmatian wines down here. Now days, it’s a place where Daenerys fought the slave-owner overlords the Mereen and Yunkai with her faithful Unsullied within these very walls, only to return to Westeros as the victorious queen. After the tour your guide will point out how to get back to your SeaDream yacht (which is in nearby vicinity of Diocletian’s Palace), in case you decide to explore the town on your own.

    Notes

    Considering that access to Klis fort and the fort itself is very strenuous, the access and walking inside the cave is considering significant amount of walking guests should be aware that this tour is very demanding and only for those in good physical shape.

  • Corinth Canal (Transit) - Transiting The Corinth Canal

    Description

    So narrow! So dramatic! You'll understand why SeaDream says "expect the unexpected" as your yacht transits the Corinth Canal. The Corinth Canal was built in the late nineteenth century and created a new sea route by linking the Corinthian and Saronic Gulfs. Until that time, ships sailing between the Aegean and the Adriatic had had to circumnavigate the Peloponnese Peninsula adding about 185 nautical miles to their voyage. However, in antiquity the Greeks had devised a way of solving the problem of communications between the two seas. In the late seventh or early sixth century BC, the tyrants of Corinth constructed a paved road called the Diolkos, which led from Schinous on the Saronic Gulf to Poseidonia on the Gulf of Corinth. The Dioikos was 3- 3.5 m. wide, and it was paved with blocks of limestone set in a deep layer of sand and gravel. Along this ran the olkos vehicle on which ships were borne overland from one side of the Isthmus to the other. Sections of the Diolkos can still be seen today; the deep parallel ruts in the road, 1.50 m. apart, are the marks left by the wheels of the olkos. The ancient Greeks had of course, considered the possibility of digging a canal through the Isthmus. The first to look into the matter was Periander, tyrant of Corinth, who drew up a plan for a canal in 602 BC. Subsequent planners included Demetrius Poliorcetes, Julius Caesar and Caligula. These plans were later adopted by Nero, who in 67 AD announced to the spectators at the Isthmian Games that he was going to join the two seas by digging a canal through the Isthmus; indeed, he went so far as to cut the first turf himself, with a golden pick, and to carry the first basket of earth on his back. But his plans came to nothing, as did those of Herodes Atticus, the Byzantines and the Venetians in later times. The canal we see today was built in 1882 -1893 by Greek and French engineers using the most advanced machinery of the day. General supervision of the enormous undertaking was in the hands of General Stepan Tupp, aide-de-camp to the King of Italy. The project was completed by the Greek Corinth Canal Company. The canal is 6,343 m. in length. It has a width of 24.60 m. at surface level and 21.30 m. at the seabed, and in some places its sides are 79 m. high. The canal is crossed by road and railway bridges, while communications between Central Greece and the Peloponnese are also served by two ferries in the form of submersible bridges, one at either end (Poseidonia and Isthmia).

  • Sarande (Butrint), Albania - UNESCO Heritage Site of Butrint

    Description

    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.
