Croatia is statistically one of the safest countries in Europe. Overall crimes in Croatia are quite low making it extremely safe to travel around. By land, or at sea. This Mediterranean gem is the cradle of sailing holidays and among best European sailing destinations for families with kids, couples, or groups of friends wanting to spend a memorable vacation in a relaxing Mediterranean style. With warm and calm Adriatic, abundance of sunshine, countless islands, moderate winds and warm local people is a must-visit for beginners or experienced yachtsmen.
Croatia has moderate prices compared to other European countries. However, the prices vary from region to region. Local people say that the prices in Croatia rise as you travel along the coast from north to south. Popularcities along the Croatian coast Rovinj, Dubrovnik, Split, and dalmatian islands Hvar and Korcula can be more expensive while Istria and Kvarner still keep their prices comparable to the inland. Remember to rather eat and drink local then imported.

That is mostly up to our guests' general satisfaction at the end of the sailing cruise. On crewed catamarans gratuities are discretionary, but it's customary to acknowledge the crew effort. We believe that the outstanding performances should be rewarded. The usual tip for services aboard skippered yacht charters in the Mediterranean is 15-20% of the weekly skipper/crew fee, that should be given in cash at the end of your journey. The usual tip for luxury charters is 5% of the full price.
July and August at the Croatian coast might be quite busy with tourists exploring this land's impressive cultural heritage and city attractions. There is also quite high density of tourist marine traffic. But the weather conditions to sail and relax your worries away are just delightful. If you like more action, vivacity, buzzing streets and higher temperatures, you will hit the spot, if your book your sailing trip in peak season...and you won't miss out.
If you prefer more tranquillity, to truly feel the genuine reflection of the country, choose June or September. Weather conditions, with bit stronger winds and still pleasant temperatures in September, May or October, is every sailor's delight, but if you are looking for a quiet week without hustle and bustle, sailing in Croatia in early June is the ideal choice.
General winds in Croatia are north westerly, rarely exceeding 20 knots. A wind to keep an eye out for is the Bora, gusty NE that can surprise those unaware of the weather forecast.
