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.
We use premium hotels that are unique expressions of the region. Often they’ve had a previous life as a monastery or a castle, but in every case they offer an exceptionally comfortable stay.
These are stylish 4-star properties that offer a casual and comfortable stay. Often without a 24-hour concierge or room service, they tend to be smaller family-run hotels that are perfect for the region.
