Croatia Sailing Tours

Croatia is a country at the cross-roads of central and south-east Europe with unspoiled coastlines on the Adriatic Sea. It comprises of more than a thousand islands which have a rich history, unreal beaches, fabulous food and an epic nightlight – Croatia is your Mediterranean fantasy, best discovered by boat. A  Croatia sail tour focuses on providing an authentic experience, visiting picturesque seashores, bays, quaint cobbled towns, ancient walled cities and national parks, giving you plenty of time to explore, relax and socialise. The balmy air of the Adriatic acts as a pleasant antidote for the warm climate meaning that days are easily taken up by swimming, sunbathing or discovering one of the unique sites, and by night it’s pure indulgence in the Mediterranean cuisine and local wines whilst watching the sunset splash colours over the Adriatic before partying the night away. It will be easy for you to soon discover why we often hear a Croatia sailing tour is one of the most memorable experiences of one’s travels.
