2022 Dates - To be confirmed

Divert from the well-worn Croatian tourist trail and sail off to explore the 100 islands of the Kornati National Park.

Sailing in the Northern part of Croatia's Dalmatian coast shows off quite a different view compared to its southern end. An arid coastline turns into beautiful pine forests, national parks and an archipelago to explore. Vibrant cities rich with history dot our sailing itinerary as we visit Sibenik, Skradin, Zadar, the Kornati National Park and more!

Here’s how it works

Small group comfort
You’ll sail in comfort as part of a small group of yachts. Vessel layouts will vary depending on which yacht you choose. Each cabin sleeps two and most yachts have cabins with a private bathroom attached. Join by the cabin or take a yacht with your friends!

Your hosts
A Mariner Boating Representative and a local technician will travel with you to assist with the yachts, berthing, provide navigational support with intimate local knowledge of things to see and do along the way.

Life on board
Your yacht offers space and stability on the water. It’s modern and comfortable, with areas to relax both below and on deck. Throw down a cushion, curl up and read a book, or make use of the easy access to the water for a swim.

Your travelling companions
Every group is different, but typically you’ll find your co-travellers will be aged between 40 and 65, enjoy keeping active, love the ocean, have a sense of adventure, love fine foods, an occasional glass of wine, and a good chat
