Great but with some items which needs improvement
Departure in Split was an nightmare. No parking, disorderly and not a pleasant experience. Had to carry provisions to the boat for very long distance Will not charter form Split again Boat and skipper (Martin) was excellent 1 wine glass on boat. Cups and plates chipped. Problem No ice maker. After i asked and checked beforehand.. Big problem if you need to cool drinks at sea. Rest of trip was very nice and wonderful experience

All went perfect from the booking, the transport, the boat clean and ready to go plus any support in betwen when we needed it as advice. We felt very supported. Great experience and an excellent week without any worries.
One week on the Lagoon 450 named Rakhel in the Split region. Very nice trip on the islands Solta, Brac, Hvar and Vis. Perfect boat to travel around

1. Die Bedienung der Segel ging äußerst schwer. 2. Der backbord Dieseltank war nicht voll. 3. In den vorderen Kojen war Feuchtigkeit und Simmel. 4. Die backbord Toilette ist die ersten Tage nach gelaufen. 5. Die Marina war überfüllt.
Wir werden nicht mehr von Splitt segeln, da das Seegebiet, sowie die Marina zu voll waren. Mit freundlichen Grüßen Rainer Frommeyer!

Weather was great, less crowding at this time of the year (early Sept) than mid summer; skipper was excellent - nothing too much trouble. Overall a great trip.
We picked up the vessel from Split and spent the week sailing amongst the islands off the coast - Viz, Hvar, Brac. We stayed overnight in the many bays around the islands, spending one night in Viz port to resupply.

Top notch crew made for unforgettable experience
We had a wonderful week sailing from Split. The boat itself was average (it was clearly quite basically outfitted - (no outdoor fridge, no generator so no AC, one water tank) - which made our chef's life more difficult. However, I still give 5 stars because our crew was so amazing. Our chef, Tom, worked under trying conditions to produce the most amazing, fresh meals for us all week. The food was top quality, so varied, and took into consideration the needs of 3 generations and a food allergy. Tom was a fabulous host and was very active in all aspects of the boat. He worked closely with the skipper, Marko, to plan an amazing route that fitted our interests perfectly. Marko, our skipper, was very young but operated with the professionalism and ability of a skipper far beyond his years. He was so kind and helpful and managed our boat with impressive skill. He and Tom worked together very well and went above and beyond for us. When our trip sadly came to an end, we felt like we were leaving friends, not a crew. Well done to Tom and Marko for an outstanding week!

THE TRIP EXPERIENCE WAS EXCEPTIONAL MADE POSSIBLE BY A VERY EXPERIENCED SKIPPER RUDI SOLIC.WE WHERE TAKEN TO THE MOST BEAUTIFUL BAYS AND MARINA'S. WE ALSO VISITED SOME EXQUISITE KONOBA'S WHICH ALLOWED US TO ENJOY CROATIA'S FANTASTIC CUISINE.
SAILING TRIP IN CROATIA FROM 24TH AUGUST TO 31ST AUGUST
By Jeffrey J. Departure date 24. 08. 2019
The trip was great and Croatia is a great place to sail, however our boat was not very safe: we had to start the engine with a hammer twice
Dubrovnik is a nice place to sail from and the team was welcoming however the boat was not safe. The engine sometimes did not start and we had to call the base manager to know how to start it (with a hammer...) and were not told how to do it before calling. Luckily, the second time we already knew how to do it (not knowing it could have got us into trouble). The boat had nice sails but other problems occured (such as windlass dysfunction).

Absolutely loved it! From the planning (Zeljana was so helpful) to the charter itself (Duje was THE BEST!!) we had an amazing time!!
Left out of Trogir - a night in Hvar town, two in Vis, one in Bol, another on Hvar then the final night in Korcula. Duje expertly helped us plan an amazing week - he was so kind and helpful and just straight up amazing! We left the trip with a lifelong friend and will be recommending Danielis and Duje to everyone I know back in New York. Thank you again for a memorable experience!!!

E’ stata un’esperienza molto positiva sia per la qualità dell’imbarcazione, che è piena di ogni tipo di confort e con attrezzature a 5 stelle, e sia per la professionalità dello Skipper, Dejan Dejanovic, che ha esaudito ogni nostra necessità di movimento e consigliato posti che non avremmo mai visto da soli.
L’assistenza a terra nel porto di partenza e arrivo è stata perfetta. Credo che ripeteremo questa esperienza il prossimo anno.
By Giuseppe B. Departure date 17. 08. 2019
This trip was everything we were looking for -- time to relax in the sun and to explore the islands. Our skipper was amazing, complete with personal recommendations on wine tasting, dining, and finding some hidden gem beaches.
Pro's: -Great staff, communicate everything we needed to prepare for the trip -Amazing skipper, talented, knowledgeable, and resourceful -Spotless boat with all the right equipment -Incredible destinations, island beaches, towns, food, etc. -Perfect blend of adventure and relaxing; long days that make for a short week Con's: -Have to wait a year to go on this trip again :)

It was a fantastic trip and enjoyed beautiful scenery, fresh seafood, and clear water for swimming. Staying on board in the quiet bay was the most relaxing part of the trip. Due to the light wind, we used engine for longer time, but we could sail with descent wind (10-20knot) for two days. Our skipper provided superb services and advice, which enabled us to relax throughout the trip. It was truly a fantastic trip.
We cruised from Dubrovnik and sailed to Sipan, Mijlet, Lastovo, and Korcura with a skipper. We have moored at the buoy at Sipan, in front of the restaurant at Miljet and Lastovo, and marina (ACI Marina) at Korcura. During our cruising (Aug 10 - 17, 2019), the weather was stable and mostly sunny with very light wind (or no wind). ,

One of the most amazing holidays we have ever had! We loved every minute.
I asked to go "off the beaten track" and Domagoj, our skipper, fulfilled the brief to the full. We stayed in secluded bays, visited beautiful islands, saw loads of dolphins and swam so much. I couldn't have asked for a better week - everything about it was so special. And having a chef to cater for us made it all the more so. Tom created amazing meals throughout the week - delicious and hugely inventive considering the facilities he had to work with. The best ever!
By Madeleine L. Departure date 10. 08. 2019
The overall trip was excellent thanks but more guidance would be appreciated with respect to booking moorings ahead of time as this proved extremely difficult compared with other sailing holidays I've been on. I tried to book online ahead of time but was told this was impossible, so I left it until we arrived but then everything was fully booked!
Day 1 Early check in but crew were delayed. Night in marina. Day 2 Morning with Skipper teaching my crew mooring procedures. Sail to Sismis mooring, booked over the phone Day 3 No wind so motored to overnight mooring in Stoncica Day 4 No wind so motored to Vis harbour for the day and night on a buoy Day 5 No wind so motored to Hvar harbour for day. Problem with ribs constantly speeding past en route to a large party ship way after midnight, so motored to quieter anchorage for the rest of the night Day 6 Motored to a Pakleni mooring in the early morning but got told to move after three hours because we hadn't booked (we couldn't get through on the number from the aoo). Sailed back to Sismis mooring for the night, again booking over the phone. Day 7 Sailed back to Marina Baotic

Trip of a lifetime! Great experience and highly recommend!
This is something that as a family we had been wanting to do for a long time. We couldn’t be happier with the experience overall. Our skipper, Jozo was amazing! Not only did he do an incredible job of piloting the boat, but he was extremely communicative in the weeks prior to the trip. He really wanted to know the experience we were looking for so that he could deliver that for us. We discussed our itinerary on a regular basis and brought to us suggestions given the weather conditions, what we liked, and was incredibly proactive in planning for the coming days (everything from where to moor/dock, excellent restaurant recommendations, and even activities in several of the ports we stopped in). Given this was our first time on a trip like this Jozo’s expertise was invaluable, plus we just really enjoyed his company. While we originally thought we wanted to go farther and to more islands, Jozo recognized what we liked and recommended spending less time sailing and more time doing what we liked (swimming, time in towns, just relaxing). He was spot on and glad he shared his point of view. He gave our family space when we wanted it, but also was part of the family all along the way. The entire process was smooth and easy – from the beginning of the process (answering all my questions), through booking, through check-in, and check-out, everything went off without a hitch. When issues did come up, the team quickly resolved issues and always brought great customer service and professionalism. Highly recommend! The only improvement area I would call out would be a bit more time/information regarding orientation to the boat. Probably our own fault, but we stored some groceries in the fridge and it wasn’t until the next day that we noticed it was not turned on so we lost many of the items. Otherwise the boat was great, the skipper amazing, and again, the overall trip was a trip of a lifetime!

Despite the issues we had the trip was great and the new captain did everything in his hand to try to solve it and help.
We were surprise with the catamaran when we arrive, it was in perfect conditions, and ahead of us a very sunny week. Everything was perfect except for the crew we got the first day. who was unprofessional. Luckily the agency react very quick and change that and the new captain was great, but for the hostess did not change so much. I don't think we are going ever to use the service of Danielis again, because of that. Too many problems in a week of holidays reserved 4 month ahead. Sure this will help them for the future.

It was amazing trip for all of us. We were four pairs, on board Dufour 460 grand large, we had enough space for eight sailors. New islands and cities. We've pass 136 nautical miles. Kastela - SESULA Solta isl. - Marina Kremik - KOMIZA Vis isl. - STINIVA Vis isl. - HVAR - Marina Palmizana - MILNA Brac isl - Marina Kremik.
Please fill out the At the beginning it was my little mistake, - never try drop anchor at night time in narrow place where you never been before... It always recommended spend first night in marina, but I was too hungry for sailing.)) First anchor stay Solta island Uvala SESULA, nice place but we haven't seen this beauty because of nigt, 3 am we unmoored and followed to marina Kremik by sail power, the plan was come over to marina around lunch time and we did it, sunrise at sea amazing. Before came in marina we swim inside Luka Peles. Marina Kremik 70 Euro per 24 hours water and power supply included, marina is good and close to Primosten, need to be visited by all who stay in Kremik. Next port of call Vis island KOMIZA anchorage, morning time we had came out Kremik, use sail power till lunch time, swim, after lunch turned on additional diesel power)) and around 18.00 we enjoyed KOMIZA on anchor and two aft mooring lines to shore. Almost all crew disembark to KOMIZA city by water taxy. Next early morning we followed to Uvala Stiniva, one of the best place, we spend around tree four hour there (anchor and one mooring line to shore fixed by additional anchor), and later sailed near Green Groto on Ravnik isl. Near HVAR city we had drop anchor and disembark by two group one by one to city. Next day we had sailed in the chanel between HVAR and Pacleni isl. , we learned our ladies how to control yacht, sails and other, we had played drill man overboard, cap which suddenly had blowed to water was successfully saved.At lunch time we come in to Marina Palmizana 158 Euro cool place. Next day after breakfast we sailed to anchorage near MILNA Beach isl. one of the best place for anchorage (anchor and two mooring lines to shore) some of us gone to MILNA city. Next day we had waiting for bunkering in MILNA around 3-4 hours steaming and 7 minutes for bunkering (50 litter of diesel fuel) Ina bunker station, after we sailed to home port marina KASTELA. Few sugetions: never try drop anchor at night time, as early you came for Friday bunkering as less time you will spend waiting for, always use sail power. Thanks a lot Danielis for amazing time on board. Kind regards Vitaliy

Our skipper Domagoj was awesome - he listened to our interests and built an itinerary on the fly which covered it all and some! We are a family of 4 (2 adults and 2 teenagers) and returned for our 2nd sailing. It was another tremendous experience. From hitting small coves to for swimming to getting us to popular beaches early to great dinners, we loved it. And our kids loved it so much they asked when can we go back! Nuff said :-)
By Todd B. Departure date 03. 08. 2019
Great service from charter company in the base. Very friendly and helpful. The boat has spacious, comfortable cabins. We had some issues with engine not working properly and the bow truster went down. The charter company did everything they could to help fix it.
By Pascal V. Departure date 03. 08. 2019
We had a great experience. Marko (Marko Gómez Karadža) was such an excellent skipper/tour guide. He was very personable, experienced and knowledgeable of the area.
Our trip consisted of stops at Šolta, Komiža, Vis, Vera Luka, Korčula, and Hvar with stops in between at various awesome coves for swimming. We used the sails as much as possible, which was great. Marko (Marko Gómez Karadža) made reservations in advance for mooring and dinner at all our stops. Couldn’t have asked for a better week! We will be back to sail the northern islands and will definitely request Marko again!
