What is the origin of the cruises aboard these traditional sailboats from Turkey and Croatia? The first "blue cruises" were born in Turkey in the 1920s. The intellectual Cervat Sakir embarked on the schooners of sponge fishermen to sail around Bodrum and especially in the Gulf of Gokova. The writer in exile literally falls under the spell of these cruises and their crew, which allow him to discover exceptional places inaccessible other than by the sea and especially, offering another point of view on the littoral. He began to mention them in his books and to discuss them around him with friends, mostly scholars. Thus in the 1960s, schooner cruises developed, the rental of old sailing ships was born. It should be noted that schooners at that time were also used as merchant ships between Dubrovnik and the Kornatis archipelago. Thus these ancient sailing boats also sailed in the waters of Croatia.
