Tips for first-timers: boat trip edition

 

When you think about holiday, the first thing that pops up to your mind is that they are the most awaited periods of the entire year. They are meant to make people relax, forget about work for a couple of days at least and enjoy some quality time next to their family and friends. However, when it comes to the period before holiday arrives, when they have to actually plan their boat trips in Split Croatia for instance, things may get a bit stressful and complicated. There are many options and many aspects worth considering. Here are some very helpful tips for those going on a boat trip for the first time in their lives.

Search for a reliable travel agency

First things first, you must seek for a reliable travel agency. Considering that the number of agencies providing travel packages and services, including boat trips, has significantly increased in the past couple of years, it may be quite difficult to make the right choice, especially with all the news about people being scammed by some no-name travel agencies. It is mandatory you do detailed online research before you go for one agency or another. Make sure you check their background and experience in the industry. Reading some reviews or directly contacting people who resorted to the services of the agency you laid eyes on some time ago can help you make the best decision.

Select the best itinerary

Another important factor to consider is the itinerary. There are countless destinations you can choose for your boat trip itinerary, yet one of the destinations in Europe that has increased a lot in popularity lately is Croatia. This country is known for being one of the “homes” for the worldly famous TV series “Game of Thrones”, but besides this aspect, Croatia is definitely a worth visiting place. You will immediately fall in love with its majestic landscapes with mountains and the sea mingling, not to mention that on a boat trip you have the chance to visit some of the most beautiful and breath-taking caves in the world.

Choose the right time to cruise

Now that you have selected Croatia for your future boat trip, you should decide on the time of the year to go on this cruise. The season opens in April-May and ends in late October, so you have plenty of time to decide when to go on this boat trip. Bonus tip: during July and August, the weather is pretty hot, so if you are not a fan of the Sun and high temperatures, you should avoid this period.

Bring appropriate clothes and footwear

Just like in any other cases when you went on holidays, you will have to start packing at some point. Don’t get too many clothes with you and don’t pack inappropriate footwear either, such as high heels or boots. It’s a boat trip after all. This means that you will be spending at least half the time of the cruise on the boat and the rest of it visiting the surrounding caves and islands. Don’t get too fancy if you don’t want others to stare at you (and not in a good way!).
