Croatia 2017

Croatia Bareboat Flotilla

September 8-17, 2017

The Dalmation Coast

With a sunny Mediterranean climate, Croatia is a spectacular cruising ground with abundant anchorages, marinas and ancient cities. Dalmatia is the largest tourist region and has three ancient cities: medieval Zadar dating back 3,000 years; cosmopolitan Split, with a 1,700 year old Diocletian palace, and historic Dubrovnik to the far south. At the center of this cruising ground is the base in Agana served by the nearby Split Airport. Sailing from Agana to the north are the rocky islands of the Kornati National Park and south the vineyards and olive trees of the Dalmationa Islands.

We’ll sail from Agana Harbor near the historic medieval town of Trogir. Trogir is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The enchanting islands of Solta, Vis St. Klement, Hvar, and Brac are in the heart of the Dalmatia and all within easy sailing distance.

The Boats

The boats are 2 Sunsail 444 catamarans and 1 Sunsail 454 catamaran. These boats have 4 double cabins, each with it’s own private head. (See Sunsail boats for details about the boats.)

Dining

Dining out in Croatia is a major part of the whole experience. Unlike our other cruises where boats are stocked with extensive provisions, we’ll be taking most meals ashore in the numerous restaurants located at every port. Good places to eat are plentiful in Croatian harbors.

Activities in Croatia

Croatia is a wonderful place to explore by boat. Island life centers around the harbors where there are many tavernas (restaurants) and shops. People can sit back and relax in the open air tavernas for hours. The food is excellent with many local specialities. There are also many spots to visit with ruins dating back thousands of years. Exploring ashore can be done by foot, taxi or in rental cars and scooters. But the best way to explore Croatia is by sea.
