“5 days of catamaran sailing around the Elaphiti Islands, with a skipper who celebrates life in the water, paddling and playing, just as much as he does on the water sailing.”

Highlights

Zaton Bay | Dubrovnik | Sipan Island | Kolocep Island | Mljet Island National Park | Ston | Peljesac Peninsula | Cycling | Hiking | Sea kayaking

Description of Sailing in Croatia

This five day small group trip, sailing in Croatia, not only takes you around the exquisite Elaphiti Islands on board a stunning catamaran, but also includes a wonderful array of outdoor activities on the islands. We know that our guests want to spend plenty of time chilling on deck, and so the activities are not super strenuous, but include the chance to sea kayak to remote, tranquil coves such as on Kolocep, cycle from one stunning village to another on Sipan, or hike around Mljet Island National Park. And, of course, swim or snorkel just about everywhere.

The main islands that we visit are Lopud, Kolocep and Sipan, all of which are less than an hour from Dubrovnik, and all boasting stunning natural heritage. They have a wonderful mix of pine forests, sandy beaches, traditional stone houses and fishing villages as well as plenty of ancient paths to trek or bike along. We may even be lucky enough to be joined by dolphins as we sail between islands through these clear blue waters.

Please note that although we have a suggested itinerary for this trip, we can adapt it according to group’s interests and preferences and, in some cases, we may need to alter it because of weather conditions or special local events. We also offer an eight day version of this itinerary for those guests who are able to spare more time.

Hello. If you'd like to chat about this holiday or need help finding one we're very happy to help. Rosy & team.

Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Sailing in Croatia

Environment

On this cruise we strive to use the power of wind as much as possible, and minimize the use of motor power. Mornings and late afternoons are spent walking, kayaking and bicycling, usually with local guides.

On our trips we bike on paved roads only, walk and hike on existing paths and tell our guests not to feed, fish, hunt and disturb animals.

In our office we minimize printing actions and recycle paper. We support the orphan bear shelter in Kutarevo.

Community

By booking this trip you bring much needed income to the people who are still recovering from the war-torn years as this was the area severely affected by war. This trip ensures that the local people benefit as much as possible in the form of jobs (we employ local guides and drivers) and provision of accommodation (we use family owned hotel or home stay with local family) most of all that negative environmental impacts are kept to the minimum. As a company we use local transfer services, buy food from the small farms and work on developing responsible waste management by stimulating waste recycle. By buying local products you are supporting this countries’ economy and helping Croatia to stand on her feet again!

We consider as our responsibility to lead efforts to maintain and preserve the integrity of this fledgling sector by petitioning the introduction of tighter controls over the use of the country's natural resources. As a company, we support the local community by building camps in partnership with local families, building bridges and accesses to the rivers. In order to preserve traventine barriers on Zrmanja River we have built a wooden detour bridges.
