PROMOVIDEO

What is the reputation of the sailing school you are considering?

Check out reviews on Google and Instagram. Rather than be told by the sailing school that they are great, find out from the students themselves.

Will the Croatia Sailing Course itinerary change?

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

What are the sleeping arrangements?

You can also have a cabin to yourself (one double bed to yourself) but you would need to pay a single supplement (50% extra). Alternatively, you can choose to share with another solo passenger (of the same gender).

What currency should I bring?

The currency is Euro since January 2023. 

What is the food and drink situation?

Food and drink is not included. Our yacht is equipped with a kitchenette including a gas stove, fridge, oven and kettle. You will need to bring your own food and drink prior to boarding the yacht. We have Supermarket in Marina Dalmacija and in different islands we will visit. This way you can pick out exactly the food you'll prefer for lunch at sea. In the evenings you'll have a wide variety of restaurant options. Croatia has delicious, locally-grown food, and our skipper will be happy to recommend the perfect restaurant for you.

Are bed linen and towels included?

Yes they are, however the towels are for indoor/shower use only – you’ll need to bring your own beach towel for outdoors.

When does the trip start and finish?

Check in is from 4pm in Marina Dalmacija on saturday. The tour ends in Marina Dalmacija on saturday. We ask all our passengers to disembark by 9am 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.

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

A local payment of round 50 Euros per person is payable onboard. This payment incorporates port fees, fuel and tourist taxes throughout the week and is subject to change.
