We are taking you on an all-in-one adventure around Dalmatia, Croatia!

Croatia sailing tour really includes a little bit of everything that Croatia has to offer. We will show you the wild, untouched nature and introduce you to some of the world’s best-known jet-setters on the island of Hvar. The beautiful, wild nature with some of the most amazing natural attractions, like Blue Cave on Biševo island. Or the hidden beach Stiniva on island Vis and a “private” archipelago in front of the unique town of Hvar. Not to forget the towns of Trogir and Split both on UNESCO’s World heritage lists. All that is combined with crystal clear water, great sailing conditions and a gourmet touch that only Croatia can offer. So, if you are not really sure what attraction to choose in this part of Adriatic or, even better, if you want to experience as much as you possibly can in one week, then this tour is definitely the right one for you.

More details about our sailing tour

Our sailing routes have daily scheduled activities, but it is up to each individual to decide on the level of participation. You can get really active with full interaction in sailing and other maritime skills. You can also choose among swimming, hiking, snorkeling or SUPing (Stand up paddling). On the contrary, you can just relax and enjoy the beautiful views from the boat cockpit with a book in one hand and a cold drink in the other one. Sailing through the national park Kornati offers also a lot of possibilities of short and not too demanding hikes. In general, the activities included in this tour are suitable for everyone. No special sports conditions required.

Day 1: Šešula bay – island Šolta (15Nm)

After leaving Split, we will set sails to the most beautiful bay on the island of Šolta. There, we will have some time for swimming and a great dinner in konoba Šišmiš (suggested).

Day 2: Komiža (22Nm)

Next day, we will sail to the island of Vis and to the town called Komiža, where we will spend a night. Komiža is a lively fisherman town. It is a locality with a port on the foothills of the hill Hum (587 m) on the west coast of the island of Vis. It is located in a deep bay on the eastern side full of gravel beaches. The island’s famous historical and cultural components include the monastery and the fortress. Fishermen from Komiža are quite famous and the fish and seafood have become a delicacy on this island. This is especially true for lobsters. Also, the wines from Komiža are well known and highly esteemed.

Day 3: Biševo-Stiniva-Vis (13Nm)

Just 5 miles distance from the town of Komiža lays the island of Biševo. This small island is famous for its sandy beaches and many caves. It is best known for its rare natural phenomenon, Modra špilja (Blue cave). The interior of the cave and the sea inside are in a magical silver-blue color. The rays of sun that penetrate through the only crack in the cave are reflected in the sea, creating incredible light effects. After a visit to the cave, we will sail to the North-East side of Vis, where we will spend the night in a town of Vis. (Entrance fee to the cave is not included in the price.) The town of Vis has, due to its strategic position, a very rich history. The Romans, Greeks, Venetians, Brits… all of them were here and their influence is still visible today. Vis was of great strategic value also in the time of Yugoslavia and was for that reason closed for visitors until early 90s. After that, the tourism on the island started and today, Vis is a very vibrant coastal town.

Day 4: Island Ščedro

Island Ščedro is a beautiful small island, populated only during the summer months and really popular among sailors. We suggest a dinner at the small konoba in Manastir Bay.

Day 5: Island Hvar

After our breakfast and coffee, we will sail further to a glamorous destination, the island of Hvar and its surrounding islands, Pakleni Otoki. Hvar has a growing reputation as being an exclusive party destination with recent guests being: UK Prince Harry, Bill Gates, John Malkovich, Roman Abramovich, Kevin Spacey, Paris Hilton, Beyonce & Jay-Z as well as many others. Clubs as Hula-Hula and Carpe Diem are internationally famous for their parties, so you do not want to miss them out. The city is a unique blend of luxurious Mediterranean nature, rich cultural and historical heritage, and mundane, tourist present. An inexhaustible treasury of the unique scenery, great atmosphere, and adventure. If Hvar (the city) is a place to be during the night, then Pakleni Otoki is where everybody wants to be during the day. This gorgeous chain of 21 wooded isles has crystal-clear bays, hidden beaches, and deserted lagoons. And this is where we will be, exploiting these gifts of mother nature. We will sleep in one of the bays close by.

Day 6: Lučice bay – island Brač (27Nm)

Lučice bay is our final stop before heading back to Split. It is the perfect place for the last night due to its tranquility, crystal clear water and a great restaurant on the waterfront.

Day 7: Split

On Friday night, we will return to our base in/near Split. Split is the capital of Dalmatia and this status is well deserved. Without hiding their pride, the people of Split will tell you that their city is »the most beautiful in the world.« There is no need to discuss this. This high-spirited city needs no convincing. This eternally young city with a population of about 200.000, which gives it its warm Mediterranean temper, has lived its urban rhythm for as long as 1,700 years, with its heart in Diocletian’s Palace and its soul with arms outspread to embrace you. Ever since, the city, which is protected by UNESCO and entered into the register of World Cultural Heritage, has been writing the history of the Croatian south’s unique capital.
