Croatia Cruising and Yachting

Explore Croatian islands in your own vessel or get a skippered one

Croatia has become firmly established as a top destination for cruising and yachting thanks to it`s warm, crystal clear waters, interesting anchorages, historic ports and more than 1,200 islands to explore. Of course successful sailing also needs good conditions and the seas round Croatia enjoy pleasant winds including the Maestral, Bura and Jugo.

Excellent amenities for sailors

It`s all complemented by excellent amenities for sailors - there are around 50 serviced marinas all with restaurants, mini-markets, hot showers and weather charts as well as 500 harbours. There are also facilities for boat maintenance and repair to help keep you afloat.

If you are an experienced sailor and not arriving on your own boat then it is possible to charter a yacht which you can crew yourself. Enjoy the independence of setting your own itinerary and choosing which cove to anchor in for a refreshing swim.

Cruising at Croatian islands
Cruising and boat tours in Croatia has become increasingly popular, with many cruise companies adding Croatia to their itineraries

Having your own vessel also means you can access islands which can only be reached by private boat. The unspoiled Kornati Islands provide sheltered coves and a main marina on Piskera which has 120 berths.

You don`t have to be a sailor to enjoy the Croatian waters; anyone can book a skippered island-hopping trip, sharing the boat with fellow sailors and with a knowledgeable crew on board.

Cruising in Croatia

If you prefer your sailing on a grander scale then consider a Croatian cruise. Enjoy the luxury of your cruise ship as you sail between ancient ports and soak up breathtaking evening sunsets.

The beauty of cruising is that you have all the benefits of a top hotel - including first class restaurants, swimming pools and entertainment - combined with the ability to visit different destinations with minimum effort.

Your cruise ship will smoothly sail from one port to another and give passengers plenty of time to disembark and explore.

On Eastern Mediterranen Itinerary

Cruising has become popular here and many of the big cruise companies have added Croatia to their eastern Mediterranean itineraries. This means you can combine time in Croatian ports with visits to Greece and/or Italy.

Most of these ships will call in at the atmospheric and historic city of Dubrovnik but other stops in Croatia are also becoming possible including Kotor and Split.

Whichever way you take to the Croatian waters you can be sure it is without doubt the best way to experience the breathtaking beauty of the country`s islands and coastline.

If you want to book a cheap cruise, Croatia's wonderful waters are a dream choice, whether you have been on a large cruise ship before or are experiencing your first cruise. Currently you can choose between Gulet Rosa and Sinbadsan SY for your sailing charter in Croatia and its islands.
