Med Sailing Holidays Offers Island Hopping Trips Through the Waters of Croatia

Med Sailing Holidays offers a convenient way for everyone from couples to groups to see the splendour of the Mediterranean or Caribbean on sailing holidays in Croatia. With almost 2, 000km of coastline on the turquoise Adriatic, Croatia boasts some of Europe’s cleanest shores with its photogenic beaches dotted by ancient cities. With over a thousand islands, it is ideal for island hopping and exploration with our talented crew at the helm.

Tips for Getting More Value Out of Your Sailing Vacation in Croatia 

Everyone wants to get the most value for money, and we offer different options to suit your budget. You can charter one of our luxury yachts for a private holiday or charter a cabin on one of our public sailings for a fraction of the cost. Here are a few more tips to help you get ready for your Croatian sailing holiday:

  • Our talented crew will take care of your breakfasts and lunches with an unparalleled menu catering to vegans, vegetarians and meat-eaters alike. For dinners, you are on your own to explore the fantastic and often inexpensive restaurants and cafes in the cities and towns that we reach at the end of the day.

  • If you have the time to spare, make sure to reach Croatia a day or two before the yacht sets sail. Both Split and Dubrovnik are beautiful cities with many attractions to explore and experience, make sure you make it to the marina with plenty of time to spare. Arriving a day or two early usually means a better airport experience, too as Saturdays are usually the busiest days at the airports in Croatia.

  • People tend to over pack for their sailing holiday, but we always recommend packing light. Remember your swimwear, something to wear when you go out for the evening and a warm jacket in case. We provide bed linens and towels, but you may bring your own beach towels. Don’t forget rock shoes if you plan on doing a little exploring.

What Sets Med Sailing Holidays Apart Regarding a Crewed Yacht Charter in Croatia

We offer a higher level of service and cater to a wider range of guests. A few of the things that sets us apart include:

  • There are no hidden fees or ‘departure taxes’ when you come on board. When we say our packages are transparent and inclusive, we mean it.

  • Our boats come with Wi-Fi at no extra charge. In Croatia, we provide 4G with unlimited data.

  • We provide your breakfasts and lunches, but you are also free to bring food and drink. Galley space is limited, so plan accordingly.

Things to Do on Your Bareboat Charter in Croatia

If you know how to handle a sailing yacht and want to experience the beauty of the Dalmatian coast in seclusion, try bareboat sailing in Croatia. Unlike our other private charters, the bareboat option comes without a crew and gives you the freedom to explore some of Croatia’s 1, 000 islands. To get the most out of your bareboat charter, it is best to plan to make sure the activities you and your group are interested in are available. This option is perfect for couples or small groups looking for adventure. Here are a few of our favourite places along the Dalmatian Coast to give you an idea of where to steer the yacht:

  • Dubrovnik is one of the two cities our Croatian charters depart from, and it more than earned the title of ‘Pearl of the Adriatic’. A haven for lovers of history, it has played an important maritime role for millennia and even rivalled the Republic of Venice for control of trade in the Adriatic. Don’t forget to take many pictures of the imposing Lovrijenac fortress.

  • Situated about halfway between Dubrovnik and Split, Vis is always a popular island to visit with family-friendly beaches and numerous activities and excursions to try for the adventurous type. 

  • Split is Croatia’s second largest city and home to plenty of outdoor activities including white water rafting and one of the most beautiful beaches in the country.

Why Trust Med Sailing Holidays Regarding Family Sailing Holidays in Croatia

Many of our guests choose to bring the whole family on one of our yacht holidays in Croatia, often choosing a private charter to have the boat to themselves. The turquoise waters of the Dalmatian Coast offer something for everyone, from those who want to sit back and relax, to those who crave adventure in the water, or even history buffs more interested in the beautiful ancient cities that dot the coast. With a private charter, you can design a custom itinerary based on where your family wants to go and what they want to do. There is no better way to create memories that will last a lifetime.

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.

 

We offer two options, the first being a fully crewed, all inclusive option which covers everything your trip needs. The second option allows you to just book a 'Boat and Captain' option and you can manage your expenses yourself. This option is only available on selected dates.

 

Whichever option you opt for, 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.
