In these uncertain times caused by the COVID-19 outbreak is hard to think of better holidays then booking your very own sailing charter. Taking a relaxing private sailing trip with your family to explore hundreds, mostly uninhabited Croatian islands is for the present the safest vacation. As sailors use to say: "a sailboat is actually your own private moving island"

Staying isolated from busy mainland cities somewhere on a secluded island, breathing the fresh ocean air, absorbing sunbeams in the company of the people close to you, is best way to reduce the chance of Coronavirus transmission.

 

Croatia in general, is one of the safest countries in the world. Overall crimes are quite low making it extremely safe to travel around. On land or at sea. This Mediterranean gem is the cradle of yacht charter and sailing cruises and a true paradise for sailing inclined.

With warm and calm Adriatic sea, fair weather, abundance of sunshine, moderate winds and friendly local people is must-visit for beginners or experienced sailors. There are 2 rules to remember when you sail in Croatia - respect the weather and be cautious of the gusty Bora wind.

 

It is all up to your expectations and your budget

In Croatia you can charter almost everything that floats. However, the option of overnighting aboard is only possible if you charter a private Sailboat Catamaran or a Motorboat. On a sailboat you are mostly dependable on winds, but it will give you more sailing pleasures and silence with minimum fuel consumption. Catamarans are much wider, stable, and comfortable. Extra commodity and luxury means higher rental price, larger costs on fuel, berths and marina fees.

Catamaran is somewhere between a motor yacht and a sailboat, ensuring even more privacy and space when it comes to the quality of living aboard. Most of the chartered catamarans have a flybridge that provides extra places to party or sunbathe. If you want to move faster and your main concern is not large fuel consumption, simply hire a motor yacht. 

If you think green, rent a sailboat

Less consumption means less exhaust into the sea. Especially if you stay most of the time under sails. When you hire a sailboat in Croatia you also gain the unique opportunity to embrace the land's amazing landscapes in whole authenticity. It is an entirely different level of experience.

Choose a suitable boat for your group

To narrow your choice, you should also estimate how much space do you need and how high your budget is. Larger the group, bigger the boat, bigger the yacht, larger the cost. When you plan to take a sailing trip with children, catamaran might be a better choice. If you stay on a budget, a sailing yacht with 2 steering wheels and bathing platform should do.

To divide the cost it is common that 2 families rent one catamaran. One hull for one family. Specify your wishes, choose preferable period and send us the itinerary requirements in your INQUIRY

 

Island hopping is one of the most exciting and authentic ways to travel around this hidden Mediterranean jewel. A week-long private Croatia sailing trip is an exclusive way to explore some of the most remarkable Croatian islands, impressive marine national parks, hidden beaches with crystal clear water, secluded villages and genuine hospitality of the local people, inviting you to taste the topmost island culinary works of art.

Be sure not to miss these little gems on your cruising adventure:

  • Hvar - is the "royalty" of Dalmatian coast, reflecting the perfect harmony between the old and the new
  • Unije - tiny isolated island located In Kvarner, surrounded with crystal clear waters and one lovely village
  • Silba - the island of love and intact emerald bays located near Zadar
  • Dugi Otok - the cradle of intact natural parks and a yachting heaven. Visit the highest lighthouse of the Croatian coast "Veli rat"

  • Korcula - Set sail from Dubrovnik and visit the island of travelers, rich cultural heritage and top Wines

 

September and October are the perfect months for a relaxing sailing cruise in Croatia. The sea temperatures are pleasant for swimming and still above 20o(70F). With abundance of sun, especially on the islands, the air keeps constant 25o(77F) during the day almost until late October.Expect lower yacht rental prices, less crowds on city streets and ports, maritime traffic is lower and you can always get a free berth in marina. 

 

Crewed charter in Croatia runs on weekly basis from Saturday to Saturday. However, in shoulder season (September, May, October, June) short sailing trips are also possible. To explore Croatia's coastline highlights and visit the most beautiful secluded treasures of the Dalmatian coast, we recommend to book one of our 7-day private sailing cruises.

 

High summer in Croatia might be quite busy with tourists, but the weather is simply glorious. If you like more action, vivacity, buzzing streets and warm Mediterranean temperatures, you will hit the spot, if you book your vacations in peak season months July or August.

To avoid the summer crowds and fully experience the genuine heartbeat of this magnificent country June or September are best months to travel or private sailing cruises.

Bit stronger winds and pleasant temperatures in Autumn can be a delight for skippers and experienced sailors. Most of the boats are still available at affordable prices. However, if you want to play it safe, then ensure your sailing vacation in June.

 

With plenty of sunny days and mild Med. climate, Croatia is among sunniest European destinations. Summertime on Adriatic is simply glorious. Sun-soaked Dalmatian islands are literally bathing in sunbeams, while the air is dry and the sea warm. If your sailing trip is in summer season, simply bring your summer wardrobe.

It is highly recommended to bring your soft handbag or a duffel bag or rucksack instead of a plastic suitcase to gain more space in your cabin. Please read about the Sail Croatia Packing List for newbies and remember to pack light.

8 Things that you don't want to forget:

  •   boarding pass/voucher
  •   sun protection items (sun lotion, sunglasses for UV protection, hat)
  •   bathing suit or a swimsuit
  •   your passport, or personal ID, enough cash, health insurance
