CROATIA


We will be in Croatia from May to July. How about enjoying a season with us?

ABOUT CROATIA
Croatia, located in the heart of the Adriatic Sea, is currently one of the main destinations for charters in the world. And it’s pretty obvious why. There are more than 1,200 islands and islets along its coast of turquoise water, eleven national parks, as well as countless waterfalls, caves, trails, and a delightful climate, with long days of sunshine, heat and very little rain during the season.

 

Add to that the medieval atmosphere of its harbours, fortifications and cities, refined gastronomy and intoxicating culture, present at every corner of its historic cities, which look like as they came out of a Game of Thrones episode - in fact, this was a location where a good part of the series was shot! With so many attractions and an unrivaled structure for sailing in the world, Croatia has been establishing itself year after year as the main destination for yachts across Europe.

 

In Croatia, we use two main ports, Dubrovnik and Split. We can organize your charter combining the two ports for departure and return, in the way that is most convenient for you holiday schedule:
