Croatia by Boat

Dalmatian Coast By Sea

For hundreds, even thousands of years, sailors have plied the waters of the Dalmatian Coast. Following the course set by these adventurers, we weigh anchor and set a course for secluded coves and harbour towns, enjoying all the comforts of our classic, well-appointed yacht. Discover Croatia by boat, but by day, pedal these dramatic islands, exploring the remote countryside, rolling along spectacular coastal roads and easing into port towns. With the assistance of our small luxury yacht we are able to experience the Dalmatian Coast the way it was created—by sea. Visit the countryside, fortresses and coves, try the phenomenal local wines, take a refreshing dip in the crystal clear Adriatic, or chat with the local villagers. The experience will make you acutely aware that there are still a few places in the world where going slowly (and travelling on your own yacht) is the only way to go.

Day by Day

Start off with lunch in a local restaurant followed by a private walking tour of Split–a 1700 year old town. Meet your captain and crew and get acquainted with your yacht, sailing out into the sunset.

Enjoy a bike ride on the beautiful Brac Island, passing stone quarries, integral to the life of this island and used in many magnificent buildings throughout the world, including the White House! Afterwards sail towards Vis Island and charming Komiza.

Take a morning hike from Komiza across the island to Vis tracing the incredible history dating from the Roman times. Later today sail towards to Hvar Island – known as the sunniest place in Europe.

Your ride today begins in the hills above Hvar town among the ancient stone walls. Enjoy a wine tasting at Tomic family winery and proceed to the small village of Vrisnik for a traditional lunch with your host–a local olive oil producer.

Venture off to explore Pakleni islands, a breathtaking archipelago right across from Hvar. Continue sailing to Korcula Island–hometown of Marco Polo, the first world traveller. Upon arrival, meet your local guide for a private walking tour of the old town.

Explore Korcula Island by bike today beginning in the small village of Pupnat and following a trail to the quaint village of Blato. Stop at a winemaker’s home to taste Korcula’s best wines and finish your ride in the beautiful coastal village of Brna.

This morning, sail towards Mljet Island–one of the greenest islands in the Adriatic and believed to be the island of Ogygia mentioned in the epic Odyssey. Take a walking tour of Mljet and later sail towards the charming Sipan Island.

Sail from Sipan to Dubrovnik this morning, disembarking at a charming bay. Say goodbye to your captain and drive to Konavle for your final bike ride ending in the seaside town of Cavtat. Head back to Dubrovnik for a private walking tour of the city and a farewell dinner at one of the best restaurants in town.

After breakfast at your hotel, meet your driver for a private transfer to Dubrovnik airport to catch your flight onward. Bon voyage!

Hotels

Andjeo, Split

Your unique accommodations are aboard a luxurious four-cabin gulet, the Andjeo. Sailing under the Croatian flag, this all-wooden vessel is nimble enough to venture into those coves and ports that larger ships are unable to access. The attentive service of its four-person crew allows one to relax and enjoy the journey. Simply put, there's no better way to travel.

Villa Dubrovnik, Dubrovnik

At the water’s edge, and overlooking the old city, the Villa Dubrovnik is Croatia’s most exclusive and most awarded boutique hotel featuring an unprecedented level of luxury and style. Its position on the cliffs above prestigious St. Jacob precinct makes it minutes from the Old City cultural landmarks and Dubrovnik attractions. View hotel website »
