What's included in this trip
Sail Croatia - Dubrovnik to Primosten SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Arrive in the ‘Pearl of the Adriatic’ - as designated by Lord Bryon -and take the opportunity to explore this magical destination, particularly the stone walls that frame the city. Then, board the vessel and learn the sailing ropes while heading out across the Mediterranean Sea overnight.
Disembark to wander around the charming, red-roofed town of Ston with its jumble of narrow streets, built to confuse invaders in medieval times. While here, be sure to sample a plate of local oysters, plucked fresh from the Ston Channel. Cast away over the turquoise waters of the Adriatic to Mljet. Venture through the national park with a guide to discover inky blue lakes, deep gorges and Roman ruins.
Put out to sea once again, this time headed via the Peljeski Channel to Korcula, the rumoured hometown of one of history’s most intrepid travellers, Marco Polo. Experience a touch of nostalgia in the Old Town or make the most of Korcula’s lovely beaches.
Hit the open water, skirting the beaches and jagged cliffs of the peninsula, before reaching the port city of Ploce on the mainland. Perhaps embark on a tour of the Neretva River, trying to spot native bird species in the treetops.
Experience the much-lauded beauty of Hvar, an island paradise that boasts well-preserved Renaissance buildings, rolling fields of lavender, a bubbly bar and restaurant culture and some of the finest beaches in Croatia.
Travel on to Brac, a dramatic rock-strewn landscape and home to countless olive, fig and almond groves, and a number of wineries. Roll off the boat and snorkel across the jewel-like water spotting brightly coloured sea creatures, lie back on the famous Zlatni Rat Beach or enjoy a meal in the Old Town of Bol.
Sail away to Split with its picturesque harbour, renowned Diocletian Palace ruins and old-world charm. Then, continue through the Kastela Gulf to Trogir, a walled, medieval city.
Embark over the Mediterranean sea one last time on a short cruise to Primosten, where this sailing trip comes to an end.

Sail Croatia - Dubrovnik to Trogir, May 2014
Wonderful! I'm already planning the next one. Mato was a phenomenal skipper and guide. One of the best by far. I have nothing but good things to say! He was professional to a "T" and highly accommodating. For example I lost my luggage the night before we were supposed to meet up, and wouldn't be able to get my luggage until the next day, when we were supposed to depart. He was very helpful the night before (even though I learned later he was wrapping up another tour group!) and then the day of, moved things around to make sure I got my luggage before we left. He was ultra-flexible and yet managed to make the best of it for everyone. He was also a great leader - clearly knew what he was doing and making sure everyone was safe and taken care of at all times, but doing so in a way that felt behind-the-scenes so that we could not worry about it and just enjoy ourselves. He also was very personable and spent time hanging out with us and connecting with us on a personal level, asking questions about different cultures and sharing stories from his own life. He is clearly a very smart, genuine, and authentic person! He also knew all the good places to visit and eat etc. - every meal we ate had something special about it, be it great local ingredients, a traditional Croatian fish dish, or in a 100 year old farm house. I can't say enough good things about Mato and have already encouraged several of my friends to consider the Sail Croatia trip because I had such an amazing time. And I've encouraged them to make sure that he's the skipper if/when they go! I wish that every trip could have someone like Mato at the helm!

Excellent tour experience with a super blend of relaxing but fun boating and swimming; great destinations to visit; great company and leadership by Niko and a fine variety of dining and local foods. He is a very good asset for your company!
