FAQ WORKATION CROATIA 2024

Get involved on the details of Magic at Work

Which airports should I best fly to in Croatia?

  • Both Split and Zadar would be great airports to land, within roughly 1 hour distance from the yacht departure. Ideally, we would meet in Split the evening before departure to meet your fellow travellers, acclimatize and not having to stress for departure due to delays. Zadar airport will be very near to our remote work village location so this is something to keep in mind. Please discuss with us prior to booking your flights to make sure everything goes according to plan. We can assist you with booking your flights if you wish so.

When and where is the boat departure?

  • The Yacht departures on Saturday 5pm from Šibenik in Marina Mandalina… We will organise a group pick up from Split around 3 pm.

 

I cannot make it on time for the yacht departure at 5pm, can I still join?

  • Get in touch with us, we can discuss with the captain where and when it would be best to pick you up. It’s much quicker to travel over land so be prepared to travel a bit.

Where will we be sailing on the Adriatic Sea?

  • We will be island hopping around islands such as Vis, HVAR, and more. Of course, we will visit the famous KRKA waterfalls. Bear in mind that sailing is weather dependent, so depending on the wind and conditions plans may change.

How much fun is it on a scale from 1-10?

  • 20 without a doubt, it truly is an adventure to never forget! Everywhere we have been so far has been incredible. The locals are so lovely and welcoming, most of them have taken the time to learn English. The captain knows all the great spots and makes phone calls all day to guarantee us a good park for the night.

  • When in doubt don’t hesitate to get in touch so we can share our experiences with you, and potentially keep a hold on your spot to clear out your mind.

When should I book?

  • Limited spots are available so get in touch with us via info@driftawave.com so we can schedule a call to get to know each other.

Where will the yacht be in the evening or at night?

  • We will change scenery between docking in the marina, on a buoy, or go for anchor. Every spot has its own little magic.

Will we be able to dance and shake in HVAR or somewhere else?

  • We will absolutely try our best to provide you access to day-/nightlife at a stage of the trip. Just remember, “what happens in HVAR, stays in HVAR”.

Who else is joining?

  • There will be hybrid workers, remote workers, freelancers, and entrepreneurs joining the trip. We will set up a WhatsApp group prior to departure so you can kick of those incredible vibes straight away. (The group cohesion was incredible during our last departure even though most people did not know each other before coming, we are still actively in touch on the WhatsApp group).
