Day 3: Trogir, Croatia

Islands near Trogir

We weren't scheduled to arrive in Trogir until noon, so we had plenty of time to enjoy the approach through the islands of Dalmatia. (This photo was taken just before 10:30 a.m.)


Lighthouse near Trogir, Dalmatia

With so many rocks and outcroppings around, it wasn't surprising to see a lighthouse perched on a small island along our route.


Pilot boat in Trogir, Croatia

Soon, the Trogir pilot boat delivered a harbor pilot to L'Austral and sped away from the ship.


Approach to Trogir on L'AUSTRAL

Trogir and its harbor came into sight a few minutes before noon.


Parasailer near Trogir, Croatia

On our port side, a parasailer enjoyed a thrill ride behind a speedboat.


L'AUSTRAL anchors in Trogir

Trogir was a tender port, so the ship's crew dropped anchor. Here, you can see a sailor checking for slack in the anchor chain.


L'Austral lowers tender

Meanwhile, other sailors were lowering the ship's tenders, which would take passengers to shore.

When the first tender was in the water, it headed for shore to set up a landing station on Trogir's downtown waterfront.


Trogir tourist map

We got ready for our own trip ashore by picking up a free tourist map at Reception on Deck 3. (Some of L'Austral's other guests had booked shore excursions in Split or to the Krka Waterfalls in National Park Krka, which is about an hour from Trogir by road.)
