A TRULY LOCAL EXPERIENCE
The island of Drvenik Veli is situated in the archipelago of Trogir.
There are only 200 permanent residents so you’ll have the chance to experience the real island life.
Ferry leaves at 10:00 from Trogir ferry port and the ride to Drvenik Veli takes 45 minutes. You will be accommodated in host house, which is only few steps away from the sea and has an amazing view of Drvenik bay. Before having lunch, you can explore the village, walk up the hill or just sun tan. Menu of the lunch will be made on a open barbecue.
After the lunch you will get ready for the highlight of the weekend – catching the squids. It’s pretty simple, very easy and no pre knowledge is needed to enjoy this activity. It would be a short boat ride to drop an anchor in the middle of the sea just before the sunset and start our squid catching adventure. Also you can also just sit in a boat and enjoy an amazing sunset as you sip your favourite croatian wine. The plan is spend a few hours out on the sea, before getting back to the port.
Upon return to the island, there’s a feast waiting for you at the host house. From the terrace you can enjoy the sea breeze while keeping warm by the open fireplace. Just in case we don’t catch any squids, there will be fresh squids for dinner. There’s nothing more delicious but to put freshly caught squids on a hot barbecue. Nikola, the host, will also demonstrate his skills of preparing a delicious croatian peka on his fireplace. Not to forget dalmatian rakija to warm up cold island evening.
On Sunday, after light breakfast we’ll explore other side of the island by land and maybe even take a dip in a crystal clear Solinska bay. The famous Blue Lagoon is just around the corner, but this one is way better.
After having lunch, it’s time to say goodbye to Drvenik island by catching a 3:00 pm ferry.
All in all, this tour combines a true island life, a culinary experience, fishing adventure and much more.
