While Croatia may be known for its beauty on land, the Adriatic Sea is home to a vast array of marine animals that need protecting, including
sea turtles, giant devil rays, and the Adriatic dolphin. Travelers will go behind-the-scenes and aid in these dolphin monitoring expeditions with The Blue World Institute collecting data on environmental conditions, locations and sightings, numbers of encountered dolphins, photographs of dorsal fins for photo-ID analysis, and data about dolphin behavior.
Beyond your time participating in dolphin conservation on the island of Lošinj, travel to the Southern islands of Croatia by boat. Experience the breathtaking UNESCO World Heritage Site, Stari Grad, a three-course cooking class from a local chef as you learn to make a Croatian speciality, peka, and kayaking to the Pakleni Islands. Hike through the old stone town, marvel at the rolling green hills, and have plenty of time to take in the natural beauty that is Croatia.
