About the crew

The Captain

He knows the Croatian coast as his home, the most beautiful bays, and all the best gastronomic offers in nautical tourism. Captain Gordan alias "Gogo" has been the captain of the Blackduck since the first moment the ship set sail. He is an experienced sailor and boat technician so he will make sure that he gets the best from the ship, the sea, and the Croatian coast for all guests. The BLACKDUCK only ever set sail with Capitan Gordan, so we can guarantee that the boat is in perfect condition.
