Sail through Croatia’s coastal islands and turquoise waters of the Adriatic Sea by private yacht while exploring, by land, Croatia’s charming Dalmatian Coast. 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 dropping 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 swimming and snorkeling from island-to-island 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 our sailing 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.
Walled, medieval Dubrovnik is as photogenic as it is historic, sitting atop a jagged coastline and overlooking the sea. Walk the high walls for breathtaking views, visit the Old Town in Dubrovnik and buy succulent fresh fruits in the city’s outdoor market. We moor our yacht off Dubrovnik for your final night, celebrating among friends. The exotic sights, delicious fresh foods, and allure of the Adriatic made for an adventure found nowhere else in the world!
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.
