Sail the Adriatic

There’s a not-so-old adage that Montenegro is best explored on land, and Croatia (aside from Dubrovnik) by sea, and we know the best available boats to help put that into practice.

We can advise on the best boats for your requirements, and the best places and islands to visit along the Dalmatian Coast from the barren and beautiful Kornati Archipelago in the north, to the trendy hotspot of Hvar, to other elegant medieval coastal towns between Split and Dubrovnik.

Our extensive portfolio contains fully crewed boats of varying sizes and specifications. The crewed boats have a minimum of two crew while the larger boats have up to seven crew members. Most of the large crewed boats are licensed to sail in Montenegro.

Of the specific destinations along the Dalmatian Coast, we particularly recommend the beautiful Kornati archipelago, consisting of 147 islands, islets and reefs, and named after Kornat, the largest island. There are no permanent settlements on the islands and just a smattering of seasonal restaurants.

Find yourself a secluded bay in which to moor up, and swim in the cleanest and clearest waters of the Adriatic where it is often possible to see the sea floor even far from land. Further south and a good deal more bustling are the additional highlights of Hvar and Split, and of course Dubrovnik.

Some of the traditional sailing boats can even be chartered without a crew (known as a bareboat charter) but you need to have a valid sailing Certificate and VHF License. Most of the charters in Croatia run Saturday to Saturday.
