Frequently asked questions about our touring holidays in Croatia

What island-hopping itineraries do you have?

The most popular way to explore Croatia is by boat, sailing between islands to explore picturesque port towns and coastal cities. We offer a number of popular sailing itineraries that start in either Split or Dubrovnik and cover the best-known islands including Hvar, Brac and Mjlet. If you prefer to spend longer on terra firma, we also offer an 8 day itinerary that travels between islands by ferry with nights spent in hotels.

What choice of boats do you offer?

On our Croatia sailing holidays you'll have a choice of standard or comfort boats with some named boats on certain itineraries. Standard boats provide mostly twin bunk cabin accommodation while comfort boats provide more spacious twin or double bedded cabins. Both types of boat come with en suite cabins. On our Creme de la Croatia tour you can cruise on a premium vessel with extra services included in the tour price. For more information on what to expect of our ships, read our page on Choice of Sail Boats in Croatia.

Which is best - an on-deck or below deck cabin?

This really depends on your own personal preference. The on-deck cabins have windows that open so you can enjoy the cool breeze and not have to rely on air-conditioning. They also offer better views. However, their location does mean that it's noisier with other passengers and crew walking around the deck. When boats are docked, other ship passengers may also be passing along the deck of your boat. Whereas the below deck cabins are much quieter as there's not the same footfall. These have portholes for natural light but they cannot be opened. Below deck cabins are cheaper so a better option for those on a budget.

I want to get off-the-beaten track in Croatia. What's the best trip for me?

Croatia is a sought-after travel destination and the most popular destinations can get very busy with visitors during the peak summer months. If you're looking to escape the crowds, consider exploring Croatia's northern coastline and islands with our 8 day Onboard at Opatija sailing holiday. There's historic towns and beautiful beaches to discover with an appearance very akin to the highlights of the south. Alternatively, explore the Istria peninsula by bike with our 8 day Cycle Croatia holiday.

I would rather explore Croatia's mainland. What would you suggest?

If sailing isn't your thing, there's plenty to discover away from the water. Croatia's mainland is home to gorgeous old towns and stunning national parks. We have a range of escorted group tours and semi-independent itineraries that cover mainland Croatia as well as neighbouring Slovenia, Montenegro and Bosnia & Herzegovina. Please browse our full range of tours or contact our reservations team.

How big are your Croatia tour groups and what is the age of your travellers?

If you've opted for a sailing holiday in Croatia, the maximum group size is around 36 passengers with 18 cabins generally on each boat. In the shoulder seasons it's likely to be a smaller group size around 20-25. On our mainland tours the average group size is between 10-15 passengers. Croatia sailing trips attract a real range of ages from those in their late 20s to those in their 60s. However, you won't find any 18-30 style cruises here.

I want to make the most of Croatia's islands. What time of year would you recommend I visit?

The sailing season in Croatia officially begins in mid-April and runs through to mid-October. However, April and May sometimes bring harsh, chilly winds, which can bring the temperatures down. It's not always the ideal time for swimming so to really get the most out of an island-hopping adventure, visit between June and September. Though beware - this is peak tourist season so expect crowds.

Experience Croatia by bike

Croatia has long been considered the perfect sailing destination thanks to the thousands of stunning islands in the Adriatic. But the mainland has just as much natural beauty to offer and one of the best ways to enjoy this scenery is by bike. You can do just that with our new 8 day Cycle Croatia tour which takes in the highlights of the Istria Peninsula, from medieval settlements to wineries and a whole lot more.

Highlights of our Croatia tours

With historic walled cities, a stunning coastline with hundreds of attractive islands, and a forested interior home to sparkling waterfalls and lakes, Croatia is not short on city and nature-based attractions. Here's some that feature on our sailing holidays and escorted tours:


Dubrovnik | Croatia

Start your holiday in Dubrovnik with time to explore the ancient stone walls and historic city centre that remains untouched by the 21st century with gorgeous churches and baroque buildings lining the marble streets.


Walk around the UNESCO-listed Diocletian Palace - the living heart of the city and an impressive legacy of Croatia's Roman past. People-watch on Split's attractive promenade and pop into the local museums and galleries.

Plitvice Lakes National Park

Plitvice Lakes | Croatia

On the mainland explore the Plitvice Lakes National Park, Croatia's biggest natural attraction with 16 crystalline lakes coursing their way through pristine forest to create a series of cascades and ever-changing rock formations.


Hvar | Croatia

Island hop to the glitzy island of Hvar and explore 13th century Hvar Town, one of the Adriatic’s best-preserved historic towns. There's also time to enjoy the legendary nightlife, flashy bars and waterfront restaurants.

Mljet Island

Mljet | Croatia

Soak up Croatia's natural beauty with half a day spent on the forested island of Mljet, one of the Adriatic's most beautiful and a firm favourite on sailing routes. Discover neat vineyards, attractive villages and two gorgeous lakes.


Evening skyline of Zagreb | Croatia
