Sail Croatia

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 Sail Croatia 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.

  • Sail Split to Dubrovnik

    I found sailing Croatia to be an excellent tour and great value for money. I would definitely recommend this trip to everyone. Dameo was a great tour leader, very approachable and was always around when needed. The crew on board MS Lav were fantastic, I couldn’t be more happier with the service. The boat itself was also fantastic, much higher standard that I assumed it would be. Overall 10/ 10 ?

  • Sail Dubrovnik to Split

    We had an amazing 8 days on the Pirate ship and would highly recommend this tour. Everything from the crew and Dan, the group party nights on the boat, food, and scenery could not have been better. Would come back and do it again!

  • Sail Dubrovnik to Split

    I had a fantastic, unforgettable experience. Made some long lasting friendships which I think made the tour so special mention. Particular mention to our fantastic tour leader Mon, who joined us in almost all the activities. Such a trooper!! All her advice was spot on. Croatia itself proved to be an unforgettable tour location for the people, crew, friends on board, our tour guide. Thanks Travel Talk.
