Best week ever!

Had such a great week with sail Croatia. The locations were incredible to visit/stay. I would recommend doing this trip to anyone looking for a good balance between partying and exploring. Our skipper, Linda was knowledgeable and she went above and beyond to make sure we were all happy. Could not recommend her enough. We loved her. Thanks for some amazing memories. Hopefully get to do it again soon. Daniel, 2022

Such a fantastic week!

My skipper and the whole Sail Croatia team made my experience so amazing and couldn’t be more grateful.

Thanks for showing us around the beautiful country and keeping us safe and happy.

Flotilla FAQ's

What is the Sail Croatia Flotilla?

The Flotilla is a 7 day sailing experience that island hops along the Dalmatian Coast with like-minded travellers. Yacht Tours differ from Navigator Cruises as they operate on sailing yachts that accommodate no more than 8 guests onboard, and set sail with other yachts in a flotilla.

What are the sleeping arrangements?

Our yachts feature double and twin cabins (bunks). We reserve our twin cabins for solo travellers who will be matched up with another independent traveller, while groups of friends sleep in double cabins. Whilst we endeavour to bunk travellers of the same sex together, you may share your cabin with a member of the opposite sex.

What are the yachts like?

You can book a Standard or Premier yacht on the Flotilla. The best way to imagine a Standard yacht is like a floating hostel; with twin or double bedded cabins, a self-contained kitchen, shared toilet and shower facilities and communal lounge areas above and below deck. Premier yachts have a similar layout with the added benefit of air-conditioning in the salon area.

What currency should I bring?

As of January 2023, the official currency of Croatia is the Euro. The best way to get Euros is to withdraw directly from an ATM (available in most large towns, Split Airport and Split Marina).

What is the food and drink situation?

Daily breakfast groceries are provided for guests to make their own breakfast, and a Skippers Lunch is also included in the Flotilla. Additional food and drinks are not included, however you are welcome to bring your own food and drinks with you onboard. Each yacht is equipped with a self-contained kitchen, including a gas stove, fridge, oven and kettle. This allows you to cook throughout the week and pre-plan the food you’d like to eat for lunch at sea! We recommend provisioning prior to check-in and topping up your groceries throughout the week. In the evenings you'll have a wide variety of restaurants available at each town, and your Skipper will be happy to provide recommendations for dinner!

If you’d prefer to sit back and relax whilst onboard, a Host / Hostess is the perfect addition to whole yacht bookings. A Host / Hostess will take care of cleaning and preparing small meals for breakfast and lunch, giving you more time to enjoy your time at sea!

Will I get to sail?

Yes! This is one of our favourite things about the Flotilla! Whilst your skipper will be sailing most of the time, from time to time, the skipper may ask you to help out – sailing fourteen metres of yacht by yourself isn’t easy – but for the most part you’ll enjoy the sound of the wind in the sails as you lay on the ship’s deck during the day. Of course, we don’t have control over the wind, so on days when the weather conditions aren't ripe for sailing, we’ll use our motor to make our way down the coast.

Do the yachts have air-conditioning?

Due to the compact design of sailing yachts, air-conditioning is only available in the salon area of the yacht (not in the cabins). Please note air-conditioning is only available on Premier Yachts when docked in port, due to the required electricity. Standard Yachts do not have air-conditioning.

How is an Flotilla different than a Navigator Cruise?

You will be sailing onboard an 8-berth yacht rather than on a large motor cruiser. As you will be travelling with a smaller group, you will get a more intimate experience sailing. A huge benefit of our yacht tours is that you can bring your own food and drink onboard, which is often a more affordable option for travellers on a budget.

Are bed linen and towels included?

Yes, towels are provided for showering. Please note these are for indoor use only and you will need to bring your own beach towel with you.

Can I book the whole yacht?

Absolutely. If you book a trip with eight people, you'll automatically be put on the same yacht. If you have fewer than eight people, you'll still be together along with other like-minded travellers. If your group is larger than eight we can divide you amongst a few of our yachts in whatever allocation you chose. Our yachts sail side-by-side during the trip, so even if your large group is spread across multiple boats, you will be able to see your friends regularly during swim stops, regattas, excursions and nights out. Whole yacht bookings of 8 attract a 5% discount per person! For terms & conditions, please view our 5% Group Special here.

When does the trip start and finish?

Check in is from 2pm in ACI Split Marina, with our team ready to welcome you with a drink at 1pm! The tour ends in ACI Split Marina. We ask all our passengers to disembark by 8:30am to allow us time to clean the yacht before the next departure. Detailed directions to the marina will be emailed to you when you book your tour. If you’re unable to make it to check-in on time, you can easily catch up with your ship at your first destination. Please see FAQ: What if I can’t make the check-in time?

What if I can’t make the check-in time?

If you’re unable to arrive at your departure point for check-in, it’s easy to catch up with your ship at your first destination. Your first night will be spent in Milna, which is easily accessible via ferry from Split (30-60 minutes). You can find the ferry timetable online here. If you need assistance planning your arrival, a member of our Sales Team will be happy to help you connect the dots! We are able to provide land based transfers if required, or our Operations Team are also able to assist you on the ground with logistics.

Are there any local payments that I need to be aware of?

A local payment of 30 Euros per person is payable onboard the Flotilla. This payment incorporates port fees, fuel and tourist taxes throughout the week and is subject to change.

Will the Flotilla itinerary change?

Our number one priority is to ensure that we have safe and happy guests onboard our tours. With this in mind, we may need to change the itinerary for a variety of reasons including weather, port availability and guest experience. In this instance, the number of swim stops may be restricted.

How Much Does It Cost to Hire a Host / Hostess?

The cost of hiring a host / hostess will depend on your departure date. If you're sailing in the low season (9 April - 15 June & 15 September to 30 November), a host / hostess will cost £790 €910 $1,080 per week. If you're travelling outside of this period, the cost of a host / hostess will be £790 €910 $1,080 .
