Pride Sailing was created to provide a gay friendly sailing holiday, so you can sail Croatia in a friendly, relaxed environment. You will enjoy your gay sailing vacation around the beautiful Croatian coastline with an all gay boat and gay or gay-friendly skipper. As you island hop around Croatia, you can learn to sail or sit back and enjoy the fabulous weather with a drink in your hand.
For your gay sailing holiday we’ve handpicked the best gay-friendly locations in the area for you to explore, as well as nude beaches for an afternoon dip. You will arrive in port with enough time to explore the island, relax on your private yacht or find a nice cocktail sunset bar.
As part of the 7-day gay sailing holiday in Croatia, you will have daily swim stops, a selection of gay/nude beaches, a handful of gay bars and the most mouthwatering restaurants to choose from. Grab your friends and book a private charter, or we can offer a cabin charter on selected dates throughout the season.
Fun week visiting the beautiful islands between Dubrovnik and Split.
Jon and Rino were lovely skipper and host.Pack light and leave your worries at home.
Just returned from a week sailing from Split to Dubrovnik with our amazing, best-in-class captain and skipper John and Rino! The trip included great recommended activities and restaurants along the way, incredible meals provided on the boat, and great fun had by all! I would recommend Pride Sailing Holidays to anyone looking for a one of a kind getaway experience!
We spent a wonderful week with Johnathan and Rino sailing from Split to Dubrovnik. Not only was the scenery magical with crystal clear waters it was one of the best trip experiences with the best crew. They made the trip unforgettable, were so helpful, funny and really give you the chance let your hair down and enjoy. They gave great recommendations on tours to do on the islands, restaurants to try and made sure there were MANY good times. We even learned how to sail, AMAZE! Thank you so much for your lovely hospitality!!

The reverse trip follows the same itinerary, with a possible replacement of Maslinica on Šolta instead of Milna on Brač. We go to Vinogradisce Bay after Korčula.
All good gay holidays start with champagne, so you'll join the boat and shortly be welcomed with a glass of bubbles!
Whether you start or end your trip in Split, there is a wonderful Old Town to explore with plenty of history, amazing restaurants and a sprinkling of secret gay bars.
We suggest you spend a day either before or after your trip in Split and head off to the lakes and the waterfalls, it's not to be missed, it's fab!
After leaving Split and polishing off a bottle or two of bubbles, we arrive in the picturesque town of Milna.
No gay vacation is complete without wine, so we will enjoy a glass before wandering the town and settling down to dinner in the traditional village.
Sunsets are amazing and you'll sleep like a baby on your first night on the boat.

Hvar is the queen of the Croatian Dalmatian islands. It has been famous since the antique because of its important strategic and nautical position.
This place has it all including the best spot to catch the sunset to the sound of house music, known for its après-beach party (4pm to 9pm), where all of young trendy Hvar descend for sundowner cocktails. If you prefer to stay on board, you'll enjoy a perfectly still night in the bay with an outdoor cocktail bar a short water taxi ride away. (Water taxi is 100 Kuna for a return trip)
You will wake to the magic of the Dalmatian!
Vis has to be one of the highlights of the trip. We will leave early to get a head start on the day's activities and our first stop will be the Green Caves! Explore the caves and cliff jump in front of the mouth of the cave!
After a morning's excitement, we're off to Stiniva Bay to discover the beach, hiding behind the cliff walls. Bring your camera for amazing pics and money for a cold beer or ice cream.
Once we're done with the action-packed stuff, we're off to Vis town to explore the island and the amazing local wine and cheese
We arrive at the postcard-perfect marina in the heart of fortified Korčula Island with plenty of time to wander the old backstreets.
Korčula is the home town of Marco Polo as well as a plethora of restaurants and bars. You can enjoy a sunset cocktail overlooking the sea.
Whether you opt for fine dining along the main promenade, local Dalmatian cuisine in a historic restaurant or another local delight, you'll be spoilt for choice and can't help but be impressed with the magical town of Korčula.
Keep an eye out for dolphins when sailing to Mljet.
Mljet is the most beautiful and most forested island in the Adriatic and one of the most beautiful islands of the Mediterranean.
We will explore the coastline, stopping wherever we feel, or make a beeline for the sheltered waters of the National Park. We will stop in the crystal clear waters for light refreshments and a drinks break, before heading into Polače where you can bicycle through the National Park or sit and enjoy the moment.
The backdrop of the day/evening will be nothing like what you've experienced before. We promise you.
Mljet National Park is just too good to say “zbogom” (goodbye), so let's not. We’ll work our way down the coastline to find a hidden gem, where time stands still and the hospitality second to none in Okuklje (pronounced "o-kook-yeah"). We will dine in a restaurant where they will kill you with kindness and the food is pretty amazing too!
No street lights means an amazing celestial display.
We will enjoy a leisurely breakfast before heading off on our final voyage. We will take requests for what you’d like to do: find a secluded bay, stay in port just a little longer or hit the seas with the wind in our hair as we set off to our final port of call, Dubrovnik.
The mystical old town will cast a spell over you and you’ll believe in fairy tales. We will enjoy your last night any way you like before saying “zbogom” (Good bye).
