What to expect

Sailing around Dubrovnik and its islands is like sailing in paradise. The sailing route starts and ends in Dubrovnik, a town that is in the top 10 of every important “to visit” list and also on UNESCO’s list of World Heritage Sites. Another town on a route is the amazing town of Korčula, a town hidden inside the walls and hometown of famous explorer Marco Polo. Beside these lively towns, the wind will take us to a peaceful island of Šipan and to two Mediterranean pearls, islands Mljet and Lastovo. Both covered with green forests and beautiful coves. Natural Park on Mljet is just breathtaking. Besides islands hopping this sailing tour offers a lot of beautiful nature and peace. It is perfect for family sailing holidays in Croatia as well as groups of friends that just want to enjoy nature and peace.

Activities

Our sailing routes are all full of activities, but it is up to each individual to decide the level of participation. You can get really active with full participation in sailing and other maritime skills, swimming, hiking, snorkeling, Suping (Stand up paddling) or you can just relax and enjoy beautiful views from the cockpit of the boat with a good book in one hand and a cold drink in the other.

Itinerary

Day 1

  • Dubrovnik
  • 15 Nm

Island Šipan/Elaphiti Islands

After You land in Croatia, we will be at the airport waiting for You and will take You straight to the boat. When You get familiar with Your new home and Your Skipper we will set sail to Elaphiti islands, a small archipelago just in front of Dubrovnik. For our first night, we will drop anchor in one of the beautiful bays that Elaphiti are so famous for. Crystal clear water, sandy beaches, and green islands are just some of the things that will charm You on the first day of your sailing in Croatia.

Day 2

  • Mljet island
  • 28 Nm

Pomena, Island Mljet

On the second day of your sailing adventure, the wind will take us through Elaphiti islands towards an amazing island of Mljet. Mljet is another Adriatic green oasis as it is covered with dense Mediterranean forest, salt lakes and much more. We will sail on the South side of the island before we reach Pomena, where we will stay for our first day/night. Mljet has National park which can be easily reached from Pomena. A short walk through pine woods will take You to Big and Small lake. On a big lake, there is a small island with Benedictine Monastery. On the lake, you can paddle or take a boat. It is also worth hiking a nearby hill for stunning views over Mljet coast and National Park with lakes.

Day 3

  • Mljet island
  • 8 Nm

Polače, Island Mljet

Next morning we will find a nice bay to swim and then sail towards Polače, a small village with beautiful anchorage that is protected by four small islands. In Polače, there are many ancient ruins from 1st to 6th century, but the biggest is a Roman palace, whose walls are still “protecting” village. It is also close to National Park so You can visit Park again or hike on the hill if You missed it on a previous day.

Day 4

  • Lastovo island
  • 26 Nm

Skrivena luka, Island Lastovo

Another day, another pearl. We will continue with island hopping as we will sail to Lastovo. Lastovo, unfortunately, lies far offshore and for that reason, we will only stay for one night, although it can offer a lot more. We will sail to Skrivena luka (Hidden bay), a beautiful, hidden, green bay. The water here just calls for some water activity, but besides that, a nice walk to one of the oldest lighthouses in the Adriatic is a must. Lighthouse Struga was built in 1839 and stands above the entrance of Skrivena luka as a mighty guard. Like on every other day of our adventure, we will stop on our way in one of the beautiful bays for some swimming and other summer joys that sailing in Croatia offers.

Day 5

  • Korčula island
  • 26 Nm

Korčula

After we enjoyed few days in quiet, remote and not so crowded places we will set sails towards Korčula. Korčula is amazing, lively town on the island of the same name. The whole town is surrounded by 14th-century wall and towers. While walking through Korčula’s narrow street, one can just feel the historic importance of this charming town. There are many art and souvenir shops, as well as konobas (nice fisherman restaurants) offering great local food. Korčula is also supposed to be Marco Polo’s home town (Venice is claiming the same).

Day 6

  • Mljet island
  • 34 Nm

Saplunara, Island Mljet

Saplunara is the most beautiful beach on Mljet. Saplunara got the name from Latin word subulum, which means sand. We will enjoy this beautiful sandy beach for water activities and rest before we sail to Metropolitan jewel Dubrovnik.

Day 7

  • Elaphiti islands
  • 18 Nm

Dubrovnik

As we sail back to Dubrovnik we will once again visit Elaphiti islands for some water activities before we do a sailing tour around Dubrovnik. Once we land our boat in Marina, you can leave for Dubrovnik sightseeing. What to say about a town that is pretty much on every top 10 or even top 5 important “to visit” list. Dubrovnik built its reputation and prosperity during 15th and 16th century as the capital of Republic of Ragusa. The old town of Dubrovnik is like Korčula hidden behind the wall with many towers. It is really hard to describe the beauty behind the walls, You will just have to explore and see it for Yourself. UNESCO found its beauty and historical importance in 1979 when Dubrovnik joined the list of World Heritage Sites.

Day 8

  • Dubrovnik
  • Nm

After a nice breakfast we will say our good-byes and return the boat at 9 AM.

    Prior to your departure, you must make sure that you have the necessary visas and/or other paperwork you might need for your travel.

    We are happy to arrange transport for you to and from the nearest airport. Some tours may already include this cost. Please read the tour details for more info.

    Your payment to us covers all the expenses for your accommodation and activities during the adventure. However, any personal expenses, such as food and leisure shall be covered by you. Please read the adventure details and our Terms & Conditions page carefully for more info.

  • Do I need to take care of travel insurance?

    Yes. Clients are obliged to take care of their own travel and medical assurance. Please read more on our Terms & Conditions page.

  • What if I have never been on a boat before?

    If you don’t know how to sail, no problem – that is why you have us. Don’t worry, very few of our guests have been on a similar holiday before they met us.

    Boating is just a different way of travel or spending holidays, it is a mix of luxury and camping – and it is a great way to see the world from a different perspective.

  • What is life on the boat like?

    Our sailboats are modern and comfortable, though this is very diferent comfort from what you are used to on land.

    You will share a cabin and usually a double bed. Each boat has multiple heads and showers. Every boat has a full kitchen (galley) and a dining table inside.

    The boats have full refrigeration, electricity (220V when conected to shore, and 12V when sailing or when on anchor) and other amenities that you would expect in a normal apartment – but although the boats are modern, they are not luxury hotels.

    Cabins are not as big as in a land apartment, so you only have a small closet and cubbies for your clothes. But when the weather is good (and most of the time it is) you will not want to spend time inside, you will rather be outside on the deck enjoying the sea and the sun.

    Every day you wake up in a different place and you go to bed each night with a different view and you can swim in crystal clear water just a minute after you wake up. Priceless!

  • What do I need to bring with me on a boat?

    1. Travel documents

    If you are traveling outside your home country, make sure you’ve got the necessary travel documents in order and ready to go: passports or visas, tickets and cash/credit cards. A passport or other internationally recognized identification document is required for entering Croatia. Tourists may remain in Croatia for up to three months.

    2. Use soft-sided bags only!

    Luggage storage on boats is limited, and hard-sided bags can cause damage to teak decks and other wood trim and there is no space to store them. Soft bags can be easily folded and stowed after you’re unpacked.

    3. Fill your medium-sized soft-sided bag with everything you want to bring – then reduce it by half!

    The single most common mistake people make on a yacht-charter vacation is bringing Too Much Stuff. On all but very formal charters, the lifestyle is very casual, so you won’t need to bring too many clothes to meet your daily needs.

    4. Bathing suits (you’ll live in them)

    During a day of sailing, your attire will likely consist of bathing suits and a simple cover up of some sort. Even going ashore for dinner doesn’t usually require a change out of the garb you’re wearing during the day, unless you’re feeling the need to freshen up. Don’t forget your favourite beach towel, because there will be a lot of swiming.

    5. Cover ups, street clothes

    Tee shirts, tank tops, or sarongs for women are all a good bet to wear over bathing suits and protect you from the sun. For leg protection, plan on shorts, jeans, or other lightweight long pants; those that have removable, zip-on or –off legs so they can be either shorts or long pants are very handy. For shore clothes, you can “go as you are” almost anywhere in Croatian islands – shorts, tees, jeans. The only exception is if you choose to visit a church or a monastery, where conservative dress is required – covered legs and arms. At such places they generally have racks of clothing for visitors to don when they arrive.
    Some hiking shoes as there will be great oportunities of short hikings to reach amazing spots with unforgetable views and sunsets.
    Ladies, if you do feel the need to dress for dinner, sundresses are good—or simple lightweight slacks and shirts. Capri pants are cool and comfortable. For men, lightweight slacks and tees or cotton shirts are fine. For all, jeans are fine everywhere.

    6. Lightweight sweater or fleece

    Most of our charters are during the warm summer months, but, warm fleece, leggings, socks, and a warm sweater should be added to this list, as nights can get quite cool after a summer storm (there are not many, but still).

    7. Sunscreen, hats, sunglasses

    These are a must. On the boat there is always at least a small breeze and you do not feel the sun in all its power, so hats, sunscreens and sun creams must be one of the first things in your bag.

    8. Lightweight foul weather gear

    Bring a waterproof jacket and pants if you have them. (If you do not have any you can rent them from us)

    9. Earplugs

    If you’re a noise-sensitive sleeper, other crews (or your own) can sometimes be noisy.

    10. Electronics

    Chargers: You’ll be able to recharge your cameras, computers, and other electronicsonboard when in port, out on the sea or anchorage you need 12V charger. In ports there is a European Voltage system 220V. Check if you need a converter plug.

    11. Medications
    Be responsible and bring what you need, also think about seasicknes. If you have experience with seasicknes bring some seasicknes pills. If you are not sure we will have some too.

    12. Most important thing

    Good will and smiles! :)

  • What if I want a custom tour?

    A lot of our trips are custom adventures based on our customers' wishes, so feel free to contact us and we will gladly cater to your needs.

    We do not charge any extra fee for custom departures for groups with at least 4 people.

    We fully understand that some couples want to do the trip privately or spend their Honeymoon guided by our company, so we will gladly provide a custom quote for two people as well.

  • Who will be our skipper?

    All of our skippers are hand-picked local professionals with years of experience sailing the Croatian seas. We have gone through extensive lengths to provide you with who we think are the best skippers Croatia has to offer, all to ensure your safety and maximum satisfaction.

  • What happens in case of bad weather?

    We reserve the right to delay, postpone, substitute or cancel a trip as a matter of safety for our guests and guides. We will make the final call whether to cancel for safety reasons on site at the time the event is scheduled to begin. If we must cancel for any reason, we are happy to reschedule where possible or give you a refund less any booking fees. In case of cancellation during the tour, we will only charge you for used days except for any included transfer.

  • What is Croatian gastronomy like?

    There are many regions in Croatia and as much gastro regions. As we will sail in the region called Dalmatia, here are few facts about their cousine, which can and should have a big impact on your sailing holidays in Croatia.

    Dalmatian gastro identity is created under the influence of diverse cultures throughout the centuries and is today greatly appreciated for the most delicious offering. The highest mark was given by the Venetians, French and Austrians. On one side we could easily say that Dalmatian cousine is classic Mediterranen type, healthy-light food, with plenty of fish, other seafood and homegrown vegetables, but on the other side it is specific, especially when it comes to food preparation. Richness of the sea and sea life, combined with herbs like rosemary, bay leaf, basil and olives gives extraordinary smell and taste. Most of the food is grilled or prepared in olive oil, but one of the best specialty, which is really hard to find elsewhere in the world is meat or seafood »baked under bell« (»izpod peke« as locals call it). Beside seafood, lamb is also a specialty and of course famous Dalmatian Parma ham in combination with Paški sir (cheese from island Pag). But for locals good food is nothing without a glass of wine.

    In Dalmatia, the Greeks and Romans first started growing vines and Croats continue to do that. Dalmatia's history is closely connected with vine growing and wine making. Dalmatian wines are of the best quality because of the abundance of soil crag and solar heat.

  • What about food and drinks?

    Food and drinks are not included in our private sailing tours, however, all our boats have a fully equipped galley (gas stove, oven, fridge, cutlery, plates...) where you can prepare delicious meals. Please budget to include food and drinks for your skipper as well.

    If you prefer not to cook on your vacation, we can provide a chef or a hostess to your tour who will prepare meals for you for an extra fee (let us know you are interested in your enquiry).

    For buying your starting supplies there is a small grocery store at the Marina, as well as a bigger ones close by (our skipper will guide you). If you wish, we can buy the supplies for you (we offer different starting packages of local produce to help you start the week and save you the hassle of shopping on the first day). Restocking is usually done on the islands where they have grocery stores as well as markets with fresh local produce.

    We believe sailing in Croatia should also be about trying local home-grown food and we know some of the best traditional restaurants (konoba) in stunning locations, where you can dine out and try local specialties.

  • What are the sleeping arrangements on a yacht?

    Our sailing yachts and catamarans all have double cabins, however on a 5+ cabin boat, one of the cabins is usually a twin/bunk cabin.

    One of the cabins is reserved for the skipper and on bigger boats he can sleep in a separate cabin on the deck.

    There are usually 2 bathrooms on the yacht and one of those is shared with the skipper.

  • When does the tour start?

    All our tours are from Saturday to Saturday. We expect guests to be in the marina at around 2-3 PM and the boat to be ready no later than 5 PM (the boat needs to be cleaned and thoroughly inspected for damages before check-in). While waiting, you'll meet your skipper, who will, once he has your documents, arrange all the paper work and do the check-in of the boat. In the meantime, you can do the provisioning for you trip.

  • When does the tour finish?

    We'll be back in port on Friday night and the check out will be by 9 AM on Saturday morning.

  • Who are sailing tours suitable for?

    Our sailing tours are suitable for families, couples looking for a romantic week away, or groups of friends wanting to do something completely independent. We will always do our best to customize the tour to your needs, wishes and expectations.

    All ages are welcome aboard our yachts and we are very keen on having families with us.

    Please keep in mind if there are any mobility issues in your group, our sailing adventures might not be the most suited for the disabled, since moving around the boat, especially getting on and off would be quite tricky. If there are any special needs or concerns for your group, please let us know up front in your enquiry.

  • What is a safety deposit?

    The safety deposit is an amount of money you need to down-pay at check-in when you rent a boat in Croatia. The amount is dependent on the boat you choose and we'll let you know the amount when you pick your desired boat.

    The safety deposit is fully refunded to you, if the boat is returned on time and without damages. The deposit can be paid in cash or with a credit card and is returned to the guest after check-out.

  • Are the skipper's services included in the price?

    When you book a sailing package with Frontier Adriatic, the skipper's services are already included in the price!

    The only thing that's not included however is the skipper’s food. It is the industry practice that the skipper takes care of the boat and guests, and in return the guests make sure that their skipper is not hungry :)

    This doesn’t mean you need to take him to fancy dinners each time you are dining out (of course you are free to do so, as most guests find great entertainment with our skippers and treat them as a member of the group).

    It does mean however that some extra food needs to be in the fridge so that the skipper is not hungry, or if you choose to cook on board that you cook enough for 1 extra person. Something to keep in mind when you are doing the provisioning for your trip.
