My sister and I signed up in late March for a 2-6 May adventure tour from Huck Finn to Dubrovnik and the surround areas in Croatia for her first visit to Europe. Huck Finn representative Nika D. coordinated all trip details with me and answered many of our "first time to Croatia and we don't know what to expect" questions. Nika worked tirelessly throughout the past two months on tour arrangements to include stays at the agency's Old Town guesthouse in Dubrovnik before and after the guided tour dates, and sent us a detailed itinerary the weekend before our in-country arrival with a list of recommended items to pack. My sister and I turned the recommendations into a shopping list for things we did not currently own such as Camelbak hydration backpacks and reef/water shoes. The 3L model Camelbaks were lifesavers in so many ways on the daily adventure activities such as hiking and biking when water was not easily accessible. Even when holding 3L of water, the backpack expanded large enough to hold many things such as a separate camera for those breathtaking snapshots of each island-sea view, and a lightweight, water resistant jacket for those occasional island showers. Also, vitally important to bring were a pair sunglasses, a hat or ball cap, breathable clothing that you can layer and comfortable athletic shoes for all of the outdoor activities during the tour.
Our tour guide Nicolina B. kept the tour atmosphere light and energizing, and shared with us a bit of the regional history at each location. Our time on the catamaran for the sailing component was simply exhilarating and it was obvious to all aboard the yacht that our skipper Mare I. possesses expert sailing skills. Besides being truly impressed with her ship handling, I can honestly say if I am on another catamaran or sailboat in my future (which I foresee), I will judge all other sailing trips based on this experience. All in all, this first trip to Croatia completely exceeded my expectations.
Simply put, Huck Finn and its outstanding staff greatly contributed to making us feel welcomed as first-time guests to Dubrovnik. I look forward to future visits through Huck Finn to the Dalmatian Coast and other Adriatic islands in the surround area.
