Sail through Croatia’s coastal islands and turquoise waters of the Adriatic Sea by private yacht while exploring Croatia’s charming Dalmatian Coast by land and by sea. Visit tiny stone villages with enchanting castles, hike cobbled paths, and learn the rich history of Old Europe as you are transported to a world left almost untouched by modern civilization.
Experience the joy of island hopping between the many colorful islands of Croatia, then drop anchor to explore Croatia’s incredible historical sites, as you tour the Dalmatian Coast on a deluxe sailboat chartered exclusively for AdventureWomen! Wake every day surrounded by the intoxicating blue of the Adriatic Sea, enjoy busy days seeing the sights, then fall asleep to the lapping waves and ping of halyards against the mast. Every day is a perfect day for fun in these crystal-clear waters, too. Whether you’re island hopping, swimming, snorkeling, or relaxing on the beach, the water’s of the Adriatic are so enticing, it will be hard to stay out of them!
To visit the Eastern European gem of Croatia is to walk through centuries of conquests and change. Masters of building anything from stone, pre-Christian Romans settled here on unforgiving, rocky terrain to produce lasting testaments of their ingenuity. Rising around their extraordinary temples and castles, outstanding examples of medieval, Baroque, and Renaissance architecture, urban planning, and ancient cobbled roadways have been thankfully preserved.
This sailing adventure in Croatia follows the Dalmatian Coast beginning with Split, a city known for its many ancient sites. A particularly masterful artifact is the exquisitely arched and cobbled limestone Palace of Diocletian, built for Dalmatia-born Roman emperor Diocles (284-305CE). Meet your guides and fellow adventurers here, and see the impressive palace sights before boarding your yacht. Once everyone’s on board, set sail for Trogir, a medieval walled UNESCO World Heritage Site, where Romanesque, Renaissance, and Baroque details abound, and cafe life is very lively. Hunt for waterfalls in the hilly Krka National Park before visiting the wine country and fishing village of lesser-known Vis. Enjoy wine tastings here before anchoring near Bisevo Island to explore the deep Blue Grotto.
Medieval and less touristic Korcula cuts a lasting impression on you with its crenulated defensive towers and pretty village square, while nearby, Mljet is a standout as Croatia’s greenest island. Known for its olive groves, goat cheese, and vineyards, it’s the perfect stage for a three-hour hiking and biking tour.
You round out your Croatia sailing trip in walled, medieval Dubrovnik, a city as photogenic as it is historic, sitting atop Croatia’s jagged coastline and overlooking the Adriatic. Walk the high walls for breathtaking views, visit the Old Town in Dubrovnik and buy succulent fresh fruits in the city’s outdoor market. You’ll moor the yacht off the port of Dubrovnik for your final night, celebrating among your new AdventureWomen friends as you toast the exotic sights, delicious fresh foods, and your Croatian adventure fun, a special bond now shared by all!
With 1,000 islands set in a sparkling sea of heavenly blue, the Adriatic is your perfect destination for swimming, snorkeling, and exploring ancient villages that survived centuries of change. Croatia is a true European jewel you shouldn’t miss discovering.
