sailing holidays Croatia

Imagine sipping champagne under starry skies while sipping from your boat under open starry skies, enjoying delectable meals at various restaurants on Croatian islands and strolling hand in hand on deserted beaches – this dream vacation could come true on a crewed or bareboat sailing holiday.

Start your yachting adventure from Trogir, an ancient small town and UNESCO cultural heritage site. Along this route lies Zlatni Rat Beach on Brac Island – making for an exciting sailing voyage!

Choosing a boat

Planning a sailing holiday in Croatia means finding the appropriate vessel. A reputable yacht charter company should offer different vessels according to your travel style, budget and desired service level – from bareboat sailboats offering performance and freedom, through catamarans and yachts offering more comfort, privacy and space.

Early summer and autumn are ideal times to go sailing in Croatia, as weather is ideal and winds provide for an exhilarating sailing experience – plus prices tend to be significantly less than during high season.

Experienced skippers can provide added comfort and safety during yacht charters. Skippers know their way around all kinds of vessels, enabling you to plan an ideal itinerary that satisfies both your wishes and local knowledge. Furthermore, they know where you can find uncrowded coves with crystal-clear waters and stunning beaches for swimming – or help find suitable anchorage locations depending on weather conditions and personal preferences.

Choosing a skipper

An experienced skipper is essential if you are new to chartering yachts. A skipper will assist with planning an itinerary, maintaining the boat, ensuring its safety during sailing, navigation assistance and providing insight into unfamiliar regions. Hiring one may also give an added edge of adventure when sailing in unfamiliar waters.

Skippers in Croatia can assist in finding the best restaurants and exploring its stunning towns, beaches, and islands. Additionally, they can introduce visitors to local culture as well as suggest activities like hiking, kayaking, windsurfing or mountain biking. Skippers are familiar with different types of yachts that they can adapt to meet individual preferences; in high season most sailboats can be chartered for one week at a time (typically Saturday to Saturday).

Choosing a crew

Sailing holidays Croatia offer the ideal way to discover this gorgeous country, offering unparalleled access to its culture, cuisine, coastal scenery and historical medieval towns as well as wine and beer tasting opportunities.

If you’re seeking a luxurious and relaxed holiday experience, a fully crewed yacht charter may be just what the doctor ordered. These tend to be more costly than their bareboat counterparts but include all meals and beverages on board as well as professional yacht crew services.

Keep in mind that sailing companies usually offer crewed trips during the high season, so be sure to book early. Some will even offer start and end-of-season offers to save money. If you need help choosing between various boat options, why not consider the Busabout tour which includes an ensuite below deck cabin from Split to Dubrovnik as it offers incredible value? Perfect for families or couples!

Choosing a destination

Croatia’s Adriatic coast provides an ideal sailing destination throughout the year, but visitors must expect crowds and dense maritime traffic during summer. Experienced sailors should also remain alert for buzzing speedboats transferring day visitors to Hvar’s popular beaches or Vis’ impressive blue cave.

If you want to avoid these hassles, book your trip during Croatia’s off season. That way, you’ll get to enjoy its beauty without the crowds or poor weather conditions that tend to accompany peak tourist seasons.

Before leaving home, be sure that all essential supplies are at hand. Bring light clothing, sleeping bags, soft duffel bags and soft duffle bags, bottles of water, garbage bags, toilet paper, washing liquid and snacks as well as first aid kits and emergency blankets just in case! And enjoy sailing Croatia!
