Unique, immersive style of travel

From the ancient temples of Olympia to the medieval walled city of Hvar, immerse yourself in the history and culture of some of Europe’s most spectacular places—aboard a legendary tall ship. The 58-guest Sea Cloud is an extraordinary, historic yacht that will enable you to:

  • Ply the waters of the Aegean, Ionian and Adriatic seas under sail like the ancients
  • Step back in history at four UNESCO World Heritage sites, including the evocative ruins of Olympia, Greece and Albania’s historic city of Butrint
  • Skim across Montenegro’s Gulf of Kotor to our Lady of The Rocks, a tiny islet formed of sunken fishing boats
  • Spend a day among the marble-paved lanes and ramparts of Dubrovnik’s Old Town

Perfect symmetry: tall ship sailing in historic waters
Experience something many people don’t know exists in the 21st century—the thrill of life under sail—in a region where the ancients sailed millennia ago. With the winds filling Sea Cloud’s sails, you’ll have ample opportunities to stand on deck and watch the orchestrated frenzy of 16 crew members going aloft in the web of riggings to hand-set 30 sails. See what it’s like.


Experience culture & ancient wonders from Greece to the Dalmatian Coast
This is an encompassing expedition in the Aegean, Ionian, and Adriatic seas; and our beautiful sailing ship is one of the most exhilarating ways to explore the region. Discover Olympia, birthplace of the Olympic games and an important sanctuary of ancient Greece. Wander the medieval market in Kruje, Albania’s ancient capital. Drive to the top of Montenegro’s fjord for staggering views. In Croatia, explore Dubrovnik’s Old Town and enjoy a private performance of klapa music, a traditional form of a cappella singing. At Korčula we stroll the waterfront cafes and see a traditional sword performance. Hvar is a stunning coastal town, backed by lavender fields and pine-covered hills. A walking tour with our guides leisurely reveals key sites; or you can choose a more vigorous hike up to Hvar’s Citadel. Learn first-hand about contemporary life along these historic shores. Active daily outings are balanced with restorative time on the Lido deck or in the Blue Lagoon of our magnificent tall ship.

Every day is active and engaging
Each day offers half- or full-day explorations on land, as well as time aboard ship. Our historian, naturalist and local guides ensure you gain an insider’s perspective and insight into the fascinating places we visit. Scenic drives, hikes on hilly terrain, market visits, cruises along idyllic shores, and free time to walk in charming seaside villages are the ways you’ll pass the time. And you may choose to stay aboard Sea Cloud, for some relaxation and glorious views. The point is, you can do as much, or as little as you like. 

Travel in excellent company 
Explore under the sure guidance of a veteran expedition leader, a historian, and a naturalist who will also serve as your Lindblad-National Geographic certified photo instructor. Their knowledge and passion for the unique marvels of Greece and the Dalmatian Coast is the key to your once-in-a-lifetime experience. Meet the team.
