GAY SAILING HOLIDAYS AND CRUISES
GAY SAILING IN CROATIA
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/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.
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!

Whether you're starting or ending your Croatian sailing holiday in Split, there is more to the city than just the old town, including the beaches and day trips to Plitvice Lakes and Krka Falls.
If you have time, we encourage you to stay a few extra days to see some of the additional sights from Split.
When you sail Croatia, you will be starting/ending your Croatian sailing holiday in Split (Marina Kaštela) which is only 10 minutes from the airport and 15 minutes from the Old Town.
Sit back and relax, you are going to love your vacation when you sail Croatia and the 'tasting plate' of the Dalmatian coastline.
We start your Croatian sailing holiday by sailing to the island of Brač and the traditional fishing village of Milna.
You'll be able to wander the streets and breathe in tradition before setting down for the first night of your Croatian sailing holiday.
There is time for you to sample some of the local wine on your private yacht before dinner, or take a quick dip.
This may be your first opportunity to witness a stunning golden Croatian sunset, but it wont be the last on your sailing holiday!
Tomorrow is another day and our first stop is to find a swim stop for lunch before sailing to Vingradisce Bay.
Hvar is the queen of the Croatian Dalmatian islands and is now famous for being famous. Hvar was known for it's important strategic and nautical position, now it's better known for her bars, restaurants, fort and vibrant atmosphere.
Hvar has it all including Hula Hula bar to catch the sunset to the sound of house music, known for its sunset party (4pm to 9pm), a plethora of restaurants to cater to every budget and taste, or If you prefer to stay on board your private yacht, 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)
You will wake to the calm and tranquility in the bay. Heaven.
No sailing holiday in Croatia would be complete without calling into Vis. Vis is not only one of the highlights of the sailing holiday, but is foodie heaven.
We will depart early to get a head start on the day's activities and to secure a berth on the very popular town quay, so you can hop on, hop off your private yacht.
You can take an excursion to the Blue Caves, Green Caves & Stiniva Bay. Bring your camera for amazing pics.
Once we're done with the action-packed stuff, we're off to the town of Vis where you can take a wine tour, military tour or just wander the streets at your own leisure.
After sailing down the Dalmatian coast, 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, bars and jewellery stores. You can enjoy a sunset cocktail overlooking the sea before dinner. Just imagine if the stone walls could talk.
Sunsets are not to be missed, a great vantage point is from the old turrets.
You are in for a real treat tomorrow as we navigate the smaller islands and sail to the National Park of Mljet.
Mljet is the most beautiful and most forested island in the Adriatic. When we sail to Mljet on your private yacht, keep an eye out for dolphins, as this is a hot-spot for dolphin watching or just sit back and relax as we sail to the National Park.
We will stop in the crystal clear waters for a swim, wine & lunch, before heading into Polače. You can bicycle through the National Park and around the beautiful lake for a golden sunset.
Every Croatian sailing holiday needs a stop at Mljet National Park.
The backdrop of the day/evening will be nothing like what you've experienced before. We promise you.
Today is a terrific day for relaxation. We have a short sailing day ahead, which means leisurely sailing and long swim stops.
We sail our way down the coastline to find our hidden gem, for our swim-stop, lunch and refreshments before we continue to a little bay and traditional fishing village where time stands still and the hospitality second to none in Okuklje (pronounced "o-kook-yeah").
We will berth your private yacht and dine in a restaurant where they'll kill you with kindness and the food is pretty amazing too!
No street lights means an amazing sky full of stars after dinner.
We will enjoy a leisurely breakfast before heading off on our final voyage on your Croatian sailing holiday to the fortified town of Dubrovnik.
We have another spot for your afternoon swim, lunch and refreshments in the bay before we head for Dubrovnik.
Dubrovnik is mystical old town that will cast a spell over you and you’ll see why it's the home to so many movie sets, including The Game of Thrones.
Take a stroll, marvel at the beautiful architecture and try to soak it all in.
Before the sun sets, we'll explore the Old Town and catch the sun setting with a cocktail and your new friends.
All good things must come to an end and it's time to say “zbogom” (goodbye).
Check out and disembarkation is at 8:00
If you have the time, we'd encourage you to stay in town for a day or two extra to really absorb what the area has to offer before the next leg of your journey.
SAILING IN CROATIA - INCLUSIONS
When you book a sailing holiday in Croatia, you want to make sure you get the most value for your money. It’s also important that you’re aware of the costs before you book your trip, so you don’t have any surprises after it’s too late.
When you are looking at your options for a sailing holiday in Croatia, you will first need to establish if you are booking a private yacht charter for your friends and family, or are you going to book a cabin charter for a fraction of the price.
If you want the most value and also the most relaxation on your trip, after who can blame you, it is your sailing vacation after all. You will need to consider all the running costs, which you can’t avoid, such as your captain, berthing, cleaning, fuel, provisions and so on. If you haven’t factored these into your costs, you might be in for a nasty surprise.
Whether you book our private charter or cabin charter option, you will see that we don’t leave anything out in the extensive list of inclusions we offer. This means that at first glance our fully crewed sailing holidays are more expensive than the other operators, however upon closer inspection you will find that our total package price will come in costing you less and giving you more value.
