What you will be up to


Arrive into Split where your skipper will meet you and accompany you to your hotel in the picturesque old town of Trogir. We meet for a meal in one of the many excellent restaurants where your skipper will give you a run down on the next few days of your trip.

Included: Dinner


After breakfast, we head to the marina where you’ll board your yacht and the skipper will give you a full safety briefing. After a short sail, we reach the fantastic bay of Krknjaši on Drvenik Veli island.  Have a swim and enjoy lunch in the azure waters. The afternoon sees us sail the short distance to Solta where we anchor in a picture perfect bay before enjoying local delicacies at a nearby restaurant.

All meals included


Take a dive off the yacht for a wake up swim while the skipper prepares breakfast and freshly brewed coffee. Our planned destination for tonight is Starigrad, on the island of Hvar. Situated in a sheltered harbour, we  moor up and give you time to explore this historic town, one of Croatia’s oldest dating back to 385 BC. At night we enjoy one of the many seaside restaurants on offer.

All meals included


After a relaxed start to the day, we sail towards Otok Scedro, a remote island. Here if we are lucky, the local wine and olive oil producer will pop over for an on board tasting. Alternatively, have a swim or take the dinghy into shore for a short hike while your meal is prepared.

All meals included


Our hosts deliver freshly baked croissants and pastries direct to the yacht! Today our destination is the fascinating island of Vis, which until 1989 was entirely closed to tourism as it served as a Yugoslav military base. This ancient city delights history lovers, while fans of Mamma Mia may recognise it as one of the movie locations. You can watch the film in an outdoor theatre most evenings. Tuck into delicious local seafood or lamb but leave room for delicious ice cream from a hugely popular gelato shop.

All meals included


After breakfast at a seafont cafe, we sail from Vis to Solta for a relaxed day. It can be a wonderful place to take a swim in the middle of the calm clear seas, an experience many of our guests list as one of their highlights. Enjoy your last full day sailing. Dinner tonight on board the yacht.

All meals included


We depart our mooring off the island of Solta and have breakfast en route back to Trogir. Here once we say farewell to our yacht, we transfer by road to Dubrovnik and a look around this wonderful city. A spectacular meal out in one of the best restaurants in the city. Overnight in our old town hotel.

Yo Ho Yo Ho A Sailor's Life for me.

I had a great fun time on my recent Croatia Sailing trip with Water By Nature. Sailing was both relaxing and invigorating as we explored the beautiful clear blue warm waters of the Dalmatian Coast, the lovely island towns, and the secluded tranquil coves. I had little prior sailing experience but really enjoyed life on the water. Swimming off the boat in the middle of the ocean was really fun. And sailing in the wind and salt spray was exciting. The food was amazing. Rafting the beautiful blue Tara River in Montenegro was a really nice complement to sailing. In fact, I would suggest spending even more time exploring in the mountains of Montenegro. And a really nice ending was exploring the beautiful photogenic old town of Dubrovnik. Life on the water with Water By Nature!
