Trip Summary

Croatia has a natural beauty that is so easy to become immersed in and the Adriatic coastline is stunning to see.  We might be biased but our feeling is that there is simply no better way to experience this beautiful region than under sail. 

Mix lazy days of beach combing and swimming with more active days spent in lively local restaurants, exploring medieval fortresses, hiking to ancient ruins, and getting lost as you wander down cobbled streets and sail Croatia.Sail Croatia Adventure

In the evenings you’ll wind down from your day onboard the boat and allow yourself to be lulled to sleep by the gently lapping waves.

This is the stuff that real adventures are made of – always something new to discover. And certainly there are many memories to make as you live life on the open sea.

Highlights of this Sail Croatia adventure include:

  • Spending time in Split exploring ancient ruins
  • Sleeping soundly over gentle ocean waves
  • Meandering around the Old Town of Trogir – a World Heritage Site
  • Snorkelling off the beautiful coast of Brac
  • A guided tour of the national park in Mijet
  • Completely blissing out on Hvars beach
  • Visiting Blace, the “California of Croatia”
  • Enjoying fine dining and sampling any number of local dishes
  • Sampling the regions renowned wine and olive oil

There is so much history to take in here.  You’ll learn about the role in history of each city you visit and you’ll visit all the must see destinations like St Lovro Cathedral, Kamerlengo Fortress, and Cipiko Palace.   There are so many cultural influences here – Greek, Roman, French, and Venetian are but a few.

But it’s not all about the man-made spots – the natural beauty of the country will be on full display – whether you’re sipping cocktails by the waterfront, taking in the bold and rocky terrain or the black pine groves, visiting vineyards, or simply enjoying the view of life that living on a sailing vessel provides.

You’ll spend eight days and nights at sea as you sail Croatia, disembarking each day to discover what new excitement lies ahead.  You’ll visit an island believed to be home to Odysseus for a period of time, get lost among narrow alley ways and cobbled squares, visit galleries and museums and so much more.

Sailing experience is not needed and not particularly hands on so a perfect way to experience a first sailing holiday while also being great R&R for the salty sailors among us.

Enquire today and discover the beauty of this wonderful country.

Accommodation
Overnight boat (7 nts)This trip is accommodated entirely on board a yacht of between 48ft to 52ft. A typical yacht for 8 travellers is equipped with 4 twin/double share cabins, 2/3 shared bathrooms and 2 showers. Our boats are real yachts and this is a real sailing trip. Yachts are designed to keep sleeping areas to the absolute minimum of space, while maximising common areas as much as possible. Smaller yachts will be used for smaller groups sizes.Rooms are allocated on arrival by our skipper according to group composition, which means it is not possible to reserve or guarantee any specific berth or cabin. Single passengers will be paired up with another passenger of the same gender, this may mean sharing a double cabin with a double mattress. Everyone including the skipper shares the bathrooms on board.

While not everyone may feel entirely comfortable living in such close quarters, those who are looking to revel in the adventure and exhilaration of an authentic sailing trip usually find any discomfort from cramped living conditions is more than made up for by the whole experience.

Meals
7 Breakfasts, 6 Lunches. Please budget for additional meals and expenses while on your trip.

On most days, breakfast and lunch will be taken aboard the vessel and ingredients are purchased as part of your kitty payment. Travelers will shop at ports for these items.

This trip is also participation based. This means that during your travels you will have the opportunity to assist with daily activities such as sailing, and will be responsible for preparing meals and clearing dishes. None of this is difficult however many hands make light work and any assistance provided to the skipper is always much appreciated.Most people agree that this type of activity helps you feel like less of a tourist and more of an explorer.

If you have any dietary requirements please tell us at the time of booking and also remind your skipper at the welcome meeting. At some of the smaller ports the choice of provisions may be limited or very simple. Vegetarians or those with specific meal requirements might choose to supplement meals with supplies bought from home, e.g. protein bars, dried fruits and so on.
