You may not know that Croatia has a few volcanic islands, one of which is Jabuka, which sits about 70 km northwest of Komiza on the island of Vis.
While it’s tough to consider Jabuka an easily accessible island, Ante and Gajo of the CroDreamz team decided to tackle Jabuka’s 97-meter-high pyramid-shaped cliff – all while capturing the first-ever drone footage climbing the island.
“We love to do different kinds of activities, adventures, fishing, and enjoy nature as much as possible. Our main goal is to raise awareness regarding overfishing and to protect our surroundings better. Fish stocks in the Adriatic are at an all-time low, which is highly alarming and sad. There needs to be a way smaller fishing zones are protected along the Croatian coast. The protection of only Jabuka is not enough by a longshot,” said CroDreamz for TCN.
“If future generations want to enjoy the Adriatic Sea, changes are necessary. Also, people throwing garbage into the sea is another problem that needs to be addressed. So next year, we will release some new videos, and at the end of every video will be a reminder that change is a must,” the CroDreamz team added.
Ante and Gajo said that they are often near Jabuka for fishing. Last year, they decided to climb it.
“Since the climb was never filmed from above, we thought it would be fun to see it from a different perspective. But the climb in itself is not fun, and it can be dangerous. So Gajo, my friend, went up and I stayed and filmed as my shoes were not suitable for the climb. It is very steep, and there are a lot of loose rocks. The climb back down is the scariest part,” said Ante.
“We would only recommend it if you have good climbing shoes and if you take it slowly, step by step. It is not for everyone!” CroDreamz concluded for TCN.
