In early August, our exciting Journey began with the SR30 yachtline, which we received in April this Year. Through our one-week test tour in June on the Main, we set off on our Summer holiday to Croatia.

Arrival in Rab
Since the Journey was too long for us, we use the Boat to sleep on a rest stop one Night. As a result, we were able to approach the rest Of the route to The Ferry in a relaxed way.
Thanks to a smooth Ferry crossing, we finally arrived on the Island Of Rab. Despite the lack of Reservation on Site, we were immediately assigned a Place in the Marina of Lopar and the Boat was let to Sea on the same Day by crane.
After all, we were very relieved and happy when we were allowed to move into our floating Home for the coming three Weeks.
In order to let the Journey sink a bit, we spent the first Nights in Lopar and the surrounding area. After the Boat was adequately equipped with Food, Water and Electricity, we embarked on our personal Adventure. We have to admit that it was strange to just drive off and not know where to end up in the Evening.
Our Tour began along the Mainland towards Obrovac. This small Place was previously recommended to us by other Guests from Lopar.
The Route was too far for us for one Day, so we Stayed one night in Novigrad.
The next Day it went on. Because you have to drive through a very low Bridge at Obrovac, our adjustable Top Was worth "Gold."

The Nature around the Canyon was absolutely fascinating and the Jump from The Waterfall a real Experience. Then we spent the Night in a picturesque Bay in the Village of Vlasici on the Island of Pag.

After another day Of bathing in the bay of Potkucina on the Island Of Kakan, we reached our Main Destination the Krka Falls. You can take the Boat to the Marina Skradin to change to an Excursion Steamer, which takes you to the National park.
This Natural Spectacle thrilled us all and the Cooling among the Waterfalls was the absolute Highlight.
Since we did not want to stay overnight in Skradin, we drove in the Evening to Vodice in the ACI Marina to stay there. Here we also bought our Ticket for the Archipelago of the Kornati, because the next Day we wanted to do a Bathing Shop in the bay of Stupica On the Island of Zirje.

Departure with Overnight Stays on the Boat
After almost four Weeks of beautiful Weather, turquoise blue Water and numerous Experiences, the Journey Home has been extremely difficult for us. Since we were already in a Traffic jam for hours on the way to The Slovenian Border, we also spent a Night in the Boat on the Way Home. As a Family of 4, we had enough Space in the SR30 yachtline and were able to enjoy our Holiday very much. We are already looking forward to our next Holiday, which will certainly take place again in Croatia.
Thank You dear family Öchsner For unforgettable Days!
