Yacht Eugenia

Step onboard adventure on traditional sailing ship Yacht Eugenia! Our crew will introduce you to this magical way of travel and provide you with the opportunity to take part in the actual sailing. You can help hoist the sails and even try your hand at steering the ship.

Experience the special moment when the engines turn off, the wind catches the sails, and the ship glides effortlessly across the water. Just listen to swell of the waves, the whisper of the wind and the cracking of the ropes. You’ll have the perfect opportunity to observe birds, wildlife, and beautiful archipelago scenery without distractions or disturbances.

During the journey our crew will also serve lunch which is traditional archipelago fish soup and some refreshments in the form of buns, coffee, and juice.
