The main difference between Croatia and Greece is in the sailing distance you have to cover between the islands. In Greek seas the islands are much further from each other, while in Croatia the distances to navigate among the islands only takes a couple of hours. That is why sailing in Croatia is ideal for a family yacht trip, beginners, day sailors and groups that wish to spend some extra time exploring the islands and prefer more stops during the day for swimming and snorkeling.
