Enjoy a sail by Northern Dalmatia, full of small islands scattered along our route. We will stop in remote bays, traverse the hills in search of sunsets and enjoy delicious meals with local ingredients. This is an adventure where we will have the opportunity to admire the sunset almost every day! We visit the beautiful national parks of Kornati and Telascica, the ancient stronghold city of Sibenik, and the Kaprije archipelago where it is likely we will spot some dolphins.

This experience is extremely laid back and flexible so you can spend your days how you choose. Mix time sailing with snorkelling, basking in the sun and exploring the less populated parts of the area before heading into town for a nice meal of local food. On this trip you will find that the skipper and the new people joining you on board love traveling and going on new adventures just as much as you do! The itinerary is not fixed and the plans are made according to the weather and winds just like real sailors should do!

This trip is unique because the skippers have a great focus on sustainable travel. We will limit plastics on board and collect plastic garbage as well as encourage the group to immerse themselves in the new cultures of these amazing places. Join us on an adventure where you will connect with nature and act like a local, respecting the Earth and the natives at each new spot we anchor. This wonderful experience will open your eyes to new cultures and you will leave it with new friends as well as a new outlook on travel.

Departure will be on the first day at 16:00 in the Sukosan Marina. You will return to the same place on the final day around 9:00.

During this week, you will also learn to sail. We have developed a program from the Royal Yachting Association: RYA Competent Crew so you can learn by practicing!

The Sukosan Marina is located just 7 km from the ancient city of Zadar. It will serve as a perfect starting point for our journey through the more than 250 islands North of Dalmatia.
The trip from the Zadar Airport to the Sukosan Marina takes only 10 minutes (5 km).

Once at the meeting point, we distribute the cabins and have a welcome meeting to explain the details of the week. Then we will dine in the old town of Zadar and get to know each other!

Zadar is a beautiful island covered in trees, accompanied by beautiful sandy beaches and a big uninhabited bay where we will drop anchor and raft the boats together. We get to have a small floating village this way and we get to know each other by cooking and dining on board, stargazing, enjoying some music, and going for a swim under the stars. This is an evening to sit back and relax, letting go of life back home and settling into the slow pace of life on board.

Sibenik, a stronghold constructed on the Dalmatian coast, stands where the Kyrka River meets the Adriatic Sea. You can get unbelievable views of the city and nearby islands from each of the four fortresses. We can stroll through the maze of narrow streets and see the beautiful sights Sibenik has to offer, like the St. James Cathedral and its town square, ending at a traditional restaurant that cooks with local ingredients. Later we can enjoy a drink at a nearby bar, just a short distance from our yachts moored at the pier.

You will not find any vehicles on the island of Kaprije. The community lives off of tourism, fishing, and growing capers and olives. The day in Kaprije includes a lot of swimming, snorkeling and enjoying the sun. At night we can choose from some options for buoy fields that have nearby restaurants. The grilled Sea Bass at the Babalu Grill Bar is at the top of our list for recommendations. This archipelago is where we are most likely to spot dolphins so keep a lookout!

Kornati reminds us of the moon, with regular patterns in layers of stone. It is mostly arid and deserted, but you will find an occasional community or a lone restaurant. Just a couple meters below the surface you will find the most breathtaking sea life. After anchoring and rafting up in Modra Bay, we will climb a nearby hill for a magnificent sunset. Later, a night dive will reveal one of the great wonders of nature, glowing plankton. As there is little light on Kornati, you will get a view of the Milky Way.

We have a regatta on Friday where the skippers will sit back and let you show off all you have learned during the week. The skipper will be there to observe and step in in case of emergencies, but it is really your time to shine, competing against the other crews in the flotilla.

At the end of the day, we head to the nearby island of Trogir to spend the last night. There we will have the captains dinner and reminisce on the wonderful week of sailing we had, toasting to the winners of the regatta and wishing the trip to Croatia never had to end.

On the second to last day, we will start heading back to the Sukosan Marina where we will land on the last day around 9:00.

Where will we eat? We will anchor and enjoy nature and its beauty in any bay where we can snorkel. We will eat on deck, swim in the crystal-clear waters, take in the sun, and relax.

    I usually fly solo when traveling, and it never occurred to me to sign up for a package tour. But I took a gamble here and they exceeded my expectations. They have somehow figured out how to get adults to buy into a sincere spirit of group adventure and camaraderie without it ever feeling forced. And obviously, the locations are beautiful, the other people are engaging, the sailing is fun (you'll grow in confidence throughout the week), and it's clear that the Dominick and his team really care about the experience they are creating. You can easily do this trip alone, with friends, or with your significant other. I'm sure I'll sail with them again.

    Stop thinking about sailing with them... and just book it. You’ll love it!
    Your fellow crew members are a wonderful bunch – and we had the most laid-back skipper ever to roam the Med. The scenery is amazing and varied: you’ll moor-up in a port one night amongst super-yachts then drop anchor the following night in a nearly-deserted bay. You’ll learn so much if you’ve never sailed before, but it’s all really relaxed.
    I’m so glad I took the plunge – you will be too.
    Maybe see you out there one day soon...

    Badly organized trip, old boat not prepared with equipment for the entire crew and unprofessional skipper (untrustworthy, drinking durin the sailing, etc.).
    It could have been an excellent week, it's a pity.
