Expeditions/experiences will be complimentary and will be more unique than traditional shore excursions

• Additionally guests may choose to go ashore on their own or use one of the complimentary bicycles provided by Crystal.
• Optional boutique/private adventures may be available at an additional cost, based on port opportunities. They will be posted on the website, by voyage, as soon as they become available.

Crystal yacht guests can be as active as they wish, and that there will be multiple opportunities during the week to engage in physical pursuits in some of the most beautiful yachting destinations in the world.

Some examples include:

Hiking through a tropical nature reserve on Cousin Island in the Seychelles, or on the hillsides above the medieval town of Kotor, Montenegro or the exclusive yacht enclave of Hvar, Croatia;
Snorkeling among colorful fish directly from the yacht’s aft marina at Sister Island in the Seychelles, or in a Dalmatian cove, with crowded tourist beaches nowhere in sight;
Biking on the hillside behind Dubrovnik, Croatia;
• Learning at your own pace the exhilaration of jet-skiing, with personal instructions from your yacht’s Destination Leader;
Swimming directly from the watersports marina of your yacht, anchored in secluded, azure harbors in the Seychelles
Descending into the depths of the Indian Ocean in your yacht’s state-of-the-art deep-sea submersible
Zipping ashore via Zodiac to a uninhabited cay in the Seychelles with a small group for a spur-of-the-moment volleyball game on the beach;
Exploring the verdant paths and boardwalks through myriad waterfalls crisscrossing the karst landscape of Krka National Park, near Sibenik, Croatia;
Waterskiing or tubing behind the yacht’s runabout in a calm anchorage in the Seychelles; or
Kayaking the crystal clear waters of Anse Lazio on Praslin Island in the Seychelles – enjoying the solitude of being alone on the water.

Shore Excursion Tips: Things to Bring

The warm, tropical climate of the Seychelles means travelers should prepare for relatively hot, humid temperatures. And while the archipelago boasts plenty of year-round sunshine, please note that the warm air also brings periodic rain showers. For your convenience, complimentary umbrellas and light rain ponchos will be provided on board. Weather along the Adriatic is similar to that of the Mediterranean, with warm, dry summers, and relatively mild winters.

To ensure you are as comfortable as possible during your travels, we recommend bringing the following additional items:

• Sun block (SPF 30+), hats and sunglasses
• After sun lotions
• Insect repellent
• UV protected clothing (especially beneficial for water sports)
• Moisture management clothing and shoes (good for both walking and active outdoor activities)
• A daypack or rucksack (backpack) for going ashore
