Sailing Holidays and Tours in Croatia

With a glamorous coastline of stunning islands, ancient walled ports and pristine interior wildernesses offering a range of sights and activities, Croatia has much to charm any traveller.

Setting sail on the Adriatic Sea from Split, Dubrovnik or Opatija, stop off at Croatia’s beautiful islands on a relaxing sailing holiday. There's plenty of time to lounge out on deck in the sun and at each stop explore charming ports, medieval fortresses, green pine forests, unspoiled inland lakes and secluded beaches.

We also offer a choice of fully guided or semi-independent group tours in Croatia. Departing from Zagreb or Dubrovnik, our Croatia tours offer a variety of mainland and island sights as well as the highlights of neighbouring Bosnia and Slovenia.

The cruise was great. There was just the right number of guests so as to get to know them all. The cabin was spacious. The food was well done. We enjoyed swimming in the sea every day. We also enjoyed the additional activities.”

We had a fantastic holiday on Admiral. The boat was better than we expected, very comfortable and the meals and service from all the staff were of a very high standard. Deanna was excellent, she was always available for enquiries, very good humoured and good fun, she understood the needs of everyone on the ship and made sure she was looking after everyone and communicating all the plans each day. She was also good company socially and on board. I would say that she was probably one of the best Guides or Reps we have ever had.”

Have just returned from the Sailing Split cruise. Sarah Bansgrove from On The Go Tours was most helpful and friendly and called back a couple of times to check availability as we had picked a busy date to travel on. We booked a classic boat but were fortunate to be upgraded to a Deluxe boat on arrival, called the FANTAZIJA (had to pay for A/C) but this was okay as the FANTAZIJA boat was a really modern, clean and new boat (only 3 months old) and was looked after by an excellent crew (Captain Nino, Valentina (Barlady), Chef and assistant (Nikola & Svjezana) and sailors (Jure, Jasko and Tea). The food was outstanding, a 3 course lunch every day and breakfast every morning. We departed from Split and stopped at the following: Makarska, Mljet, Dubrovnik, Trstenik, Korcula, Hvar, Split. There was a morning swim stop and most of the time an afternoon swim stopping before docking for the night at an island / mainland. Favourite for me was Split, Dubrovnik, Korcula, Hvar and the best swim stop was at the Zlatni Rat beach on the Island of Bol (Golden Horn Beach). I cannot recommend this trip enough and would like to thank everyone, from On The Go to the fantastic crew of the FANTAZIJA boat (especially Valentina, who was an absolute star). The crew really work long hours but always had a smile on ther faces! We have really nice people on the boat, ranging from 15 - 70. I am in my mid thirties and the range was okay. (depends on if you want to party/relax). Some advice: Do the River Rafting on the Cetinin river (day of arrival), it is an excursion (you have to pay extra) but is a lot of fun. More advise: your tab on the boat is paid at the end of the trip, so ask for a running total mid week so you can get an idea of how much you have (already) spent as you don't want a surprise at the end of the trip! NOTE: you will need to pay this bill in CASH along with any tips for the crew. Thank you On The Go and the crew of FANTAZIJA for an unforgettable holiday and trip!”

Hi OTG, Just a quick note to say how much I enjoyed my recent trip to Croatia. I took the Dalmatian Discovery and enjoyed every minute. I particularly enjoyed Krka Waterfalls, Zadar and swimming on the reef. I was really impressed with the boat and the cabins and as I do on most boats - I slept like a baby. Thanks again On The Go!
