About
This tour program offers an exclusive and unforgettable experience of visiting the beautiful Albanian Riviera. During this tour you will discover unexplored beaches, wild nature, lovely hidden pebble bays, crystal clear waters, isolated old churches and hidden caves used by pirates back in the days. We will leave the port at Vlora and start our boat tour adventure on the beautiful Adriatic and Ionian Sea. These two seas meet at this exact point. We will sail towards Sazani Island, a former military base during the communist era in Albania. This small island has only recently been opened for the general public and tourists, as until 2016 it was strictly restricted to get near it. Around noon, we will stop for lunch at Shën Vasili Bay (or any other bay you choose) and enjoy swimming in the crystal-clear waters of the two seas. After enjoying this unforgettable experience by the seaside, we drive back to Tirana in the late afternoon.

The best time in Karaburun
Jul 2020 • Friends
We had one of the best experiences exploring Karaburuni Penisula. We sailed towards Sazani Island, a former military base during the communist era in Albania. Learned a lot about Albanian History and enjoyed swimming in the crystal-clear waters of Jonian and Adriatic sea. Organization and tour guide were great. Strongly recommended.
