September 2019

This was our second visit with you.
First with your family, now with your friends.
During both trips:
- The weather was great
- The islands were great
- The food was great
And we can could go on….
But, what really made this trip special was both of you (Nina & Ratko)
You are both wonderful hosts who put love, passion & perfection in everything you do. Thank you!

With love, Gary
Thank you for an amazing week!!!
Our first voyage on a boat was awesome.
The food, sailing and weather was perfect.
The best part was Ratko & Nina, which set
An extremely high bar for us.
Thank you for making our first time on a Catamaran so special.

Bill & Emily

Nina & Ratko,

Our journey with you on Pura Vida was truthfully spectacular. Your incredible hospitality, amazing cuisine, attention to detail; Cleanliness is what made this trip incredible. Of course there was amazing Croatia! And the great weather and seas. But it was the two of you who made this a once in a life experience. Thank you!


September 2019

Ratko & Nina,

Wow! What an Experience!
The scenery and weather of course, were great. But the opportunity to experience the islands and culture of Croatia were unforgettable.
Best of all was our time together as friends with the islands, while getting to know the two of you.
So glad we were such an ´´easy´´ group for you- thanks to commander Dan´s leadership.
Best of luck on the wedding. Best wishes for a wonderful time together following your wedding.
May all your wishes always come true.
Chris & Jessica

Most importantly- thank you!!!
From the first sight of the historic boat festival to the beautiful city of Korcula with drinks on top of the castle, to ´´ Cork Fishing´´. We did not know what to expect with this trip, but we had an incredible experience and you exceeded our expectations- thank you for the incredible sailing, for being such wonderful hosts, for teaching us about your wonderful country- and being special friends.

Dear Ratko + Nina,

Steph and I and the crew can´t say enough about what a great time we had with you + Nina this week on Pura Vida! This was a trip of a lifetime and we couldn´t have dreamed of having a better time.
I will think of you every time you wore my Cape Horn Jacket! We wish you + Nina a great life and may your travels take you where ever the wind may go!
