Three Reasons to Charter a Sailboat in Croatia

1. Over 1,000 islands to explore!

With so many islands in the archipelago, Croatia is sure to have a spot perfect for everyone. Set sail to Hvar, the lucky island which gets more hours of sun than anywhere else in Europe! For the nature lovers, Mljet is your haven: an island cloaked in lush forest with two beautiful lakes and an astonishing range of biodiversity; making it a unique spot to moor your boat for a night. If you are looking for peace and quiet, the enchanting island of Silba can be best explored via sailboat so you can uncover the hidden coves and unspoilt beaches, invisible to the eye of the average tourist. A sailboat charter in Croatia will allow you to explore these islands in a unique way!

2. Lush Landscapes

A sailing holiday in Croatia will open your eyes to a lot more than just the bays and harbours of the Adriatic coastline, but the stunning natural beauty of the country as a whole. If you charter your sailboat from the Zadar base, you don’t have to head too far inland to reach the magnificent Plitvice National Park, where stunning waterfalls cascade into enchanting turquoise pools, surrounded by dense emerald greenery. Perhaps begin your navigation route from Sibenik so you can spend a day inland in Krka National Park, home to Skradinski Buk falls, one of Croatia’s best-known natural beauties, and swim in the glittering river enclosed by Aleppo Pine forest.

3. An Adventurer’s Paradise

Charter vacations can be whatever you want them to be; if you’re craving a lazy getaway, you can kick back and read a good book whilst you cruise through the tranquil, azure waters of the Adriatic, underneath the warmth of the Mediterranean sun. Or if you’re hoping for an activity-packed adventure, look no further! Rent yourself a sailboat from the charter base in Pula, bring on board your snorkeling and diving gear and go and discover Fraskeric, a site where enchanting underwater tunnels and seahorses sightings make for a truly magical experience. You can set sail south to Cape Kamenjak, where this uninhabited landscape comprises dramatic rolling hills best explored on foot or by bike, and a rugged, rocky coastline with opportunities for swimming, kayaking and windsurfing! The Dalmatian coast has endless possibilities, so you can tailor make your Croatian sailboat charter holiday so it’s perfect for YOU!

Croatian Climate

When a sailing holiday can be so easily ruined by a spell of bad weather, selecting your destination is key. Croatia is made for sailboat charters, not only because of the picturesque landscape of the Adriatic coast, but also the mild climate boasting an averaging of 30°C. In high season, winds range between 10-20 knots and combined with the blue skies and calm waters, navigation conditions could not be more ideal.

A Day in Dubrovnik

A boat rental from Dubrovnik doesn’t just mean a sailing trip, make sure you allow time - even if it’s just a day - to explore the charming seaside city. Moor your sailboat in the harbour, and go for a stroll through the old town, with white limestone streets surrounded by beautiful baroque buildings, and then venture up to the city walls and walk round, soaking up the cultural heritage and rich history of the city. If you want even more incredible views, take the 4 minute cable car up to Mount Srd, and see the city from 405m.
WHERE TO EAT: ‘Lajk’ is a restaurant on the east side of Prijeko street, serving local and regional dishes, often with family recipes, to give you a truly authentic experience.
WHERE TO DRINK: ‘Buža’ is a bar also known as ‘hole-in-the-wall’, perched atop a cliff in Dubrovnik. This is a unique spot to enjoy a glass of wine, boasting panoramic views of the glittering Adriatic, so make sure you don’t miss it!

Getting There

There are various international airports scattered across Croatia, many a short distance from our sailboat charter bases:

  • Dubrovnik: Dubrovnik Airport is located 15.5km from the centre of the city, near the village of Čilipi.
  • Pula: Pula Airport is located 6km from the city centre.
