Discover the Dalmatian Coast

Sailing Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast, offers gentle cruising and island hopping in the calm, clear waters of the Adriatic. More experienced sailors can enjoy longer spells out on the open ocean and take part in regattas and other events. Occasional strong mistral winds provide more challenging conditions for those who relish more action-packed sailing.

A Croatian sailing charter allows you to experience a Mediterranean paradise of turquoise seas, quiet, colorful islands and picturesque port towns steeped in history, delicious fresh seafood and friendly, welcoming locals. Unspoiled coves and dramatic waterfalls, ancient forts and lush, green forests all lie in wait along the country’s celebrated Dalmatian Coast. 

Skirt along Europe’s sunniest coastline, and stop off to embrace a hotchpotch of history, culture, and gastronomy. Set sail from Dubrovnik and drink in the views as you cruise between the fertile islands of Hvar, Korcula, Ston, Mljet, and Brac. Slip out of our Marina Agana base for voyages to the spectacular Krka Falls. Head to Croatia to revel in the warm weather, fresh breezes, and UNESCO World Heritage sites.

Visit historic Dubrovnik—one of the world’s ten best-preserved medieval walled cities—or dine in remote fishing villages where the pace of life has remained unchanged for centuries. Explore the ancient ruins of Diocletian’s Palace, now home to the citizens of Split, and island-hop your way through a network of pristine national parks teeming with wildlife.

Dalmatian highlights

Croatian coastal cuisine features excellent fresh seafood, including the celebrated Ston oysters, delicious squid, tuna and prawns. Heavily influenced by Italian cuisine, Croatian cooking is a unique combination of Slavic and Mediterranean food cultures that varies from region to region.

Onshore, the Dalmatian Coast is a haven for sightseers and hikers alike, with the nation’s numerous national parks providing stunning landscapes and abundant wildlife. Croatia’s coastal towns are overflowing with the country’s unique culture and history, and visitors can leave with a little piece of Croatia in the form of lavender and rosemary honey and essential oils.
