Dalmatian Islands Sailing

The Dalmatian coastline of Croatia, with its clear seas, gentle summer climate, quaint villages, historic towns and mountainous backdrop is a magnificent sailing area. It’s easy to see why this has become one of Europe’s leading sailing destinations.

More islands than you can visit

It is not possible to visit all the major islands of the Dalmatian coast in two weeks, let alone one, but you can give it a good try! And that’s not even counting the hundreds of smaller islets just begging to be explored. With so many options you’ll be spoilt for choice.

Sailing round these islands provides a fantastic mixture of history, nightlife and stunning scenery. We have suggested routes for one or two weeks, sailing from either Split, Trogir, or Dubrovnik. This area offers something for everyone, with some stops having great bars and others being the perfect secluded anchorage, for those of you wanting a night under the stars.

What’s the weather like?

The weather is a great pull for Croatia, with low 20’s in May and October and a lovely 30 degrees plus in peak summer. The prevailing wind in Croatia is a north westerly, with an average of a force 4 to 6. A wind to keep an eye out for is, the ‘Bora’ which is a north easterly that can be a surprise for those who’ve not checked their forecasts.

Please do be aware that you will be required to pay marina and port fees. These fluctuate depending on the size of the yacht and location, but can be anywhere from £20 to £80 per night. The facilities in Croatia are generally very good though, with showers and shore power widely available.
