The Adriatic coast of Croatia is known as 'The Coast of A Thousand Islands' and its idyllic sailing conditions and easy line-of-sight navigation mean that it has long been a favourite flotilla holiday destination. This historic coastline has it all: majestic walled cities with Medieval cobbled streets, ancient ruins, romantic cities, vineyard-covered hillsides and national parks offering pine forests with deserted coves and crystal clear turquoise waters – one stunning sight after another.
Due the the Croatian authorities requiring a valid ICC (International Certificate of Competence), RYA Day Skipper Certificate or higher, Sunsail is one of very few who offer Croatia flotilla sailing. Nobody else has the choice of destinations and yachts that make sailing here so special. So, whether you are looking for the culture, history and wonderful architecture of a cosmopolitan city as well as the best of the Adriatic’s sandy beaches from Dubrovnik, or the tiny island towns, modern marinas and Kornati National Park within Kremiks sailing area, you won't be disappointed.
If you are intending to sail in Croatia please make sure that you take your certificates with you to support the police authority paperwork which is issued locally. If you do not have the required certificates, please visit our schools pages to see how we can help you to qualify to sail here.
