Sailing in Croatia During The Coronavirus

Where is the safest place to travel right now?

There are no longer any countries in Europe without the coronavirus presence and some nations are practically on lockdown due to the number of ill and the rate of infection. Although the infection rate is momentarily in decrease and there are some less affected destinations. Croatia is one of them. Showing a positive picture with almost no new infections and successfully defeating the COVID-19, Croatia is now opened for most of the countires.

Since this is a seaside country, surrounded with warm and clean Adriatic sea (the air has 100 times less germs at sea than the urban areas ) consider isolated uninhabited Croatian islands your safest holiday destination in 2021. For easier entrance please fill Croatia border entrance

A private yacht trip in Croatia is at the moment your best vacation option.

If you plan to visit this stunning country for your vacation in the following summer, your best choice is to book a private sailing trip with Croatian skipper. At the moment, this is the safest and the most unique vacation escape . Our advice is to take your sailing tour with closest family members, as a couple, or with a small group of people you know. A sailing yacht assures complete freedom and isolation in the perfect environment - THE SEA. Best time to sail Croatia is in the summer months, so you still have some time to decide.

Why is a sailing yacht the perfect isolatation from the COVID-19 disease?

A Sailboat or a Catamaran is the perfect environment to isolate yourself and your close ones. It provides the maximum independence from civilisation. All the provisions you need for your trip, can be provided at the embarkation for your week long tour. You can eat, sleep and live aboard without abandoning you life habits. All the boats are fully equipped for a relaxed 7-day tour. They are also being thoroughly cleaned and disinfected to prevent the potential infection.

Say in the open space at sea and absorb enough sunbeams.

Considering all the facts it seems that taking a relaxed private sailing trip is the safest and the most reliable vacation at the moment. What can be better then a gentle cruise through the azure blue Adriatic on your own private yacht charter?

Feel free to visit the most beautiful and isolated Dalmatian islands, remote villages and secluded coves. Staying at the open air and under warm Mediterranean sun, might reduce the risk of potential infection. Enjoy the beauties of Croatian coast safely on a skippered sailboat.

4 factors that can prevent from getting infected

Constantly monitoring the situation regarding the new COVID 19 

As a traveling agency, Active Sailing staff is closely monitoring the impact of the new Coronavirus (COVID 19) has on our clients, travelers and the traveling industry. We are following all the rules and guides made by all relevant national institutions with respect to the Coronavirus affair. These rules are made in accordance with the Croatian Ministry Of Internal Affairs, Ministry of Health and the National Civil Protection Headquarters. Our agency will feature alerts, current situation or restrictions in Croatia that might affect traveling decisions of our guests.

5 facts why sailing is perfect protection from COVID-19

  • Complete isolation There is no better place to be, then on a sailboat. Being detached from the rest of the world prevents the virus from spreading
  • Sailing with your close ones You can stay aboard with the people you are certain to be healthy, with having almost no contact with other people
  • Fresh Air is a Disinfectant Researches show, that fresh air is germicidal and can kill the flu virus and other harmful germs
  • Sunlight kills bacteria The sun inactivates the influenza virus and kills bacteria that cause lung and other infections. Exposing to the sun can synthesize vitamin D in your skin if sunlight is strong enough. High level of vitamin D prevents the respiratory infections and may reduce the susceptibility to influenza
  • Open Air Factor Stay at the sea as long as possible. Open air is far more harmful to airborne bacteria and the influenza virus, than indoor air. The endless sea and the uninhabited Croatian islands are the perfect environment to restrain the COVID 19.

We believe and hope, that the higher temperatures in the upcoming months will slow down the Corona virus from spreading and fully contain the pandemic. All you need to have now is a little patience and faith.

Let us reassure you, that this nightmare will be over before summer starts. Especially if you will act rationally and follow the rules and guides made by your ministry of health and the line of devoted experts, trying their best to restrain and overcome the COVID 19 disease.
