Travelling in Croatia in a whole boat with a skipper
What a whole boat sailing holiday offers
Sailing holidays are an excellent opportunity for groups of family and friends to come together and create unforgettable holiday memories. Booking a whole boat allows you some luxuries you may not find when sharing the boat with travellers. One particular luxury that could make a great different to your holiday structure is the freedom of your itinerary - which may be especially relevant when travelling in Croatia where there is such an abundance of special islands and beautiful destinations to visit. Reserving a whole boat then allows you to work with your skipper to tweak and tune the holiday to suit you and your friends and family.

When to go to Croatia for a sailing holiday & how long should I visit?
The Croatian climate is pleasant and generally suitable for sailing holidays throughout the year. Travellers might want to consider a sailing holiday in Croatia during the slightly quieter months of May, June, September, or October when weather conditions are still generally warm. Depending on the style of sailing experience you are looking for, each group of islands has their unique personality, and each island it’s special charm. Travelling with a local, experienced skipper means that you are able to travel to the popular destinations as well as lesser known spots, tucked away from mainstream tourism. Again, depending on the set of islands you are visiting, the recommended duration will differ. Shorter weekend trips to holidays of 2 weeks can be found throughout the Split archipelago, Kornati islands, the Istrian peninsula, and Dalmatia.
Transport options to and from your holiday in Croatia & sailing with a family
Croatia is home to a number of international airports, including through the capital of Zagreb, Dubrovnik, Split, Zadar, Dubrovnik, Pula, and Rijeka.
