Join Leaders In The Wellness Industry On A Mission To Protect The Ocean

A key element of The Voyage Of Visionaries retreat is dedicating time to explore how we can positively influence the planet and marine ecosystems through hosting events on yachts. We believe that improving ocean health begins with nurturing our own inner waters. We enhance our well-being by avoiding poisonous substances, toxic foods, harmful environments, unhealthy relationships, and negative thoughts.

Similarly, we can contribute to ocean health by educating ourselves and others about marine conservation, supporting local efforts to protect marine life, backing organizations that reduce pollution, adopting sustainable practices during our yacht retreats, and honoring the sea with our prayers and loving thoughts. These actions mirror the care we give to ourselves, extending respect to the oceans that support life on our planet.

This journey begins by fostering a deep love for the ocean, understanding marine ecosystems, and identifying factors that degrade them, and those that aid their regeneration. With this knowledge, we can take meaningful steps to preserve and rejuvenate the sea.

In the morning there will be an yoga class available on the top deck of the yacht. Followed by a breathwork Ice Bath workshop and a healthy breakfast. We will spend the afternoon swimming at one of the beautiful beaches (Buba Beach) on the Riviera, Where you can choose from all sorts of watersports and bungee jumping, then head into Makarska port for the night. Makarska nestles under the massive peaks of the Biokovo mountain range with Mt. Jure, the highest seaside peak on the Mediterranean.



After a morning movement and meditation practice we will depart early morning for Korcula. We stop off at the private island of Moro for some swimming and an intimate workshop then before the sun goes down we will head to Korcula and do a walking tour of one of Croatia’s oldest cities. This evening we will have an incredible dinner and then have some time to explore and shop, or play connection games on the yacht.

Day 4. VIS

Day 4. VIS

After a somatic movement practice we will depart for Vis in the morning. We will have lunch in the harbor before a full day of exploring! Virtually untouched by modern tourism, the island of Vis is steeped in military history. Established as a military zone, Vis has only been accessible to foreigners since 1989. It is hard to top Vis’ combination of hidden beaches, fresh seafood, and authentic Croatian wine. This day is all about activities and exploration. Rent scooters and cruise the rolling hills of Vis. Stop for ice cream in the fisherman’s town of Komiza, then make your way back to Vis town for a wine tasting at Lipanovic. Finish the night with a workshop and sunset dinner at the incredible Fort George.

Day 5. HVAR

Day 5. HVAR

We’ll start the day with a beautiful restorative yoga and breakfast before departing for Hvar – a beautiful island with 13th-century walls, a hilltop fortress and a main square anchored by the Renaissance-era Hvar Cathedral. Lunch will be served on the boat when we arrive in Hvar to prepare you for another day of exploring. Together, we’ll hike up to the incredible fortress where you can see the entire city. It’s quite the view. After wandering around the city, we’ll stop outside of Brac for an afternoon dip off the back of the yacht. We’ll finish out the day with a beautiful sunset dinner followed by a workshop.


Day 6. Trogir

After starting the morning with yoga or workout and breakfast, we’ll sail for Trogir for a relaxing day of picturesque views and workshops. Trogir is known for having a historic centre which is considered the most preserved medieval town in central Europe. This center is considered by many as an “open museum” due to the number of Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque structures found in the town. The view from the bell tower is to die for. In between meals and exploring, there will be workshops and talks – as well as plenty of time to enjoy the sun. You can also look forward to another epic sunset over dinner. It never gets old.




It’s our last full day together, and you can bet it’ll be a special one. After a rejuvenating morning practice We’ll start our journey back to Split, but not without stops for swimming and sun bathing along the way – and one last night at sea! You can expect a day filled with workshops, connection and deeper integration of everything you’ve experienced up to this point on the trip. We’ll eat yummy food and spend the day relaxing – while simultaneously preparing you to enter back into the “normal” world with the tools you need to create the life of your dreams back on land. You can be sure this experience will leave you inspired and excited to uplevel your lifestyle and have more joy, connection and freedom in your everyday life. Enjoy a delicious meal on board followed by a cacao ceremony, ecstatic dance party, and end the evening cuddling under the stars.

Day 8. SPLIT

Day 8. SPLIT

After our final morning movement and breakfast, we’ll set sail from the private bay and head to Split for checkout at 9 AM. The morning will be filled with lots of hugs, swapping Instagrams and WhatsApp numbers, and saying a goodbye – or rather “see you later” to the crew and your new family.

The power of the ocean

The feminine energy of the ocean creates a safe space for emotional healing, fostering acceptance and resilience within its vastness.

Its rhythmic currents mirror life’s emotional ebbs and flows, guiding individuals to release emotional blockages and embrace fluidity. There are thousands of retreats happening on land but very few happening on the water.

This is a special opportunity to experience the power the ocean has to augment your retreat experience.
