8 days from
Live your best yacht life in the "Land of 1,000 Islands"
Croatia was made for sailing. With dozens of islands scattered like jewels across the sparkling Adriatic, and some of the best beaches in Europe, there’s no better way to discover its enchanting coastline than by boat. Board our 78ft live-aboard yacht and spend the next 8 days diving into turquoise waters, sipping cocktails in glitzy beach clubs, kayaking through national parks, exploring perfectly preserved medieval towns, tasting local wines, and dancing on the sun-soaked deck at our boat party. You’ll hit all the most iconic highlights from Split’s old town to Dubrovnik’s epic film locations, as well as secret coves and swimming spots where there’s not another person in sight.
Day 1: Arrive in Split
Fly into lively Split and head to the harbour where our 78ft sailboat will be waiting. Drop your bags in your cosy cabin, then spend the rest of the day exploring. Later, head back to the yacht for a delicious dinner and drinks on deck. Then find out for yourself why Split's nightlife is so famous.
Day 2: Hvar Beach Clubs
Cruise to Croatia's most glamorous island, stopping for a swim in the turquoise waters en route. Hike the winding path up to the Spanish Fortress for views over terracotta rooftops and the sparkling Adriatic. Then chill out with an ice-cold cocktail and some tunes in Hvar's high-end beach clubs.
Day 3: Mljet National Park
Forest-cloaked Mljet is next on our list, a pristine jewel of an island that's almost completely unspoilt. Explore the national park by kayak or bike, check out the picturesque church and monastery, and round off the day with the captain's 4-course dinner under a canopy of stars.
Day 4: Dubrovnik Tour
There's a reason Dubrovnik is Croatia's biggest attraction, and a film set favourite. A sea of terracotta rooftops encircled by medieval city walls, it's almost impossibly gorgeous. Sail into the harbour and spend the afternoon exploring. Come sundown it's cocktail o'clock on the waterfront.
Day 5: Korcula Calling
After breakfast, sail to one of Croatia's hidden gems. With hidden coves, olive groves, and one of the best preserved medieval centres in the Adriatic, Korcula is one of our top islands. Spend the day exploring the town, before a delicious wine tasting evening.
Day 6: Boat Party
Spend today drifting through turquoise waters in an inflatable with a drink in hand and dancing on deck at our summer boat party. Dock in pretty Makarska after the most amazing day, and seek out the town's best bars and most buzzing restaurants to continue the fun after dark.
Day 7: Brac Island
We've got one last beach day on the cards and it's a good one. Stop at Brac Island for some time on Bol's beaches. With water clear as glass, and a forest shrouded mountain backdrop, it's easy to see why they're so famous. Then sail into Split, ready for a final night out on the Croatian Riviera.
Day 8: Trip End
Enjoy a chilled morning before saying goodbye to the sailboat and heading home. We've loved having you!
Accommodation & Meals
You’ll stay on our 78ft sailboat for the entirety of the trip. With hot showers, spacious rooms, and air conditioning, you’ll be sailing the Adriatic in total comfort. There are three decks in total. The lower deck houses 10 of our cosy twin share bunk cabins, each of which has a sink and safe for valuables. The middle deck features a large kitchen and communal area as well as the shared bathrooms, and two more twin share bunk rooms. On the top deck there are two further twin share bunk rooms and an expansive sundeck, ideal for catching some rays, or sipping a cocktail.
Lots of our travellers are solo travellers, so when you book with us, we’ll pair you up with a like-minded roommate of the same sex. Our trips are great for couples or friends as well - just let us know you’re together, so we can be sure to put you in the same room.
7 breakfasts, 5 lunches and 2 dinners are included on this trip, and you’ll have the option to join a 4-course meal hosted by your captain and crew (at an additional cost) on night 3. Most nights we will be docked in towns where there are plenty of options for eating and drinking and you’ll have the freedom to eat wherever you like.
Croatian cuisine is influenced by its neighbouring regions, from the seafood dominated Mediterranean to the schnitzel and strudel of central Europe, but has its own distinctive dishes and tastes. From the tongue staining crni rižot (black risotto with cuttlefish ink), and Istrian ham to frituli (donut like fried pastries) and oysters, foodies are spoilt for choice here.
