Croatia - Sailing Weekend Overview

Spend the weekend sailing on Croatia's stunning Dalmatian Coast as you and your family spend your nights on board a catamaran, exploring what these gorgeous islands have to offer. Sailing, Paddle Boarding, Cycling and Snorkelling are all included as it is suitable for children aged over the age of 8.

There can’t be many better ways to spend a weekend with the family than this one. Together, you will sail the brilliantly-blue Adriatic Sea and explore luscious-green islands off Croatia’s Dalmatian coast. Pair this with the fun-filled included activities such as paddle boarding, snorkelling and cycling and you have the makings of an unforgettable weekend.

You will sail and sleep on board a modern catamaran which has plenty of deck space to soak up the glorious weather and the surrounding sights. Every day, you and the family will explore different locations together and enjoy the variety of included activities.

In the evenings, you’ll have free time to absorb the culture of the small villages and towns as you stroll along the seafront and enjoy the local restaurants.

On day one, your family adventure gets off to a brilliant start as you set sail from Komolac and explore the Elaphiti Archipelago. Dive right into the holiday as you take a dip in the Adriatic waters and try paddle boarding around the smallest inhabited island of Kolocep. You’ll also visit Lopud and Sipan before finishing the day onshore in a beautiful bay with plenty of restaurant choices nearby.

The sights continue to amaze on day two as you travel to the island of Mljet, a stunning National Park with two inland saltwater lakes. From here, you’ll head to Peljesac Peninsula and anchor in a lovely bay near Zuljana.

On your final full day, you and your family will have time to explore the peninsula as well as the walled city of Ston, then it’s just a short journey to your base at Broce.

Your family sailing adventure comes to an end as you work your way back to Komolac and disembark in the early afternoon.

From here, we can arrange a transfer to the airport or to Dubrovnik, where we can also organise your accommodation if you would like to extend your family holiday.
