  2. I never imagined that Croatia could be enjoyed in so many ways! It’s perfect for a beach bums, hikers, wine enthusiasts,and even shoppers. Personally, I am interested with sight seeing the cathedrals, the amazing landscapes and of course the island tours. Another plus for a Croatian tour would be the organised destination  package. Let’s admit it, there are some tours that felt like a waste of money because it wasn’t planned well enough for visitors to enjoy it. Thanks for this information. It felt like a tour already!

  3. Hi Daniella

    Croatia is such a beautiful country but I have never been there. I have been to its close neighbour Bosnia  which is a delightfully country, full of wonderful sights.

    The holiday sounds like my cup of tea  because  I enjoy sailing  on cruises but have never been on a yacht. You make it sound so enhancing that I wish I could do it tomorrow but alas my career gets in the way.

    How does a yacht experience compare to a cruise?

    Thanks

    Antonio

  5. Wow, I’ve never heard of Croatia before. Just from the looks and feels of your high-quality pictures, I could tell that this is one place that would absolutely be part of my treasured memories once I experience it firsthand. If you don’t mind, allow me to add this place to my bucket list!

    Now, when it comes to making this vacation a reality, can you recommend an itinerary for me that’s full of nature-friendly activities? And by the way, is your 7-day sample itinerary something I could begin with as a newcomer to Croatia? I feel overwhelmed since I’m really clueless about this country.

    • Hi Dominic,

      I am surprised, Croatia is a very popular yachting ground:)

      There are many spots to sail to in Croatia, and the itinerary is just an example of where you can visit. Know that you can customize your itinerary with your charter broker. Anyway, you’ll be spoiled in Croatia in term of activities as there are a plethora of them!

  6. Wow! This is a beautifully visual post. I remember the name Croatia, but I always thought it was near Greece or Rome in ancient history. You definitely sparked my interest in visiting! I love historic places and this is right up my alley. I actually had to add researching Croatia to my todo list today. I’m so curious about the history. My only question is what language do they speak there now? I honestly can’t remember much about it. It’s been a long time since I studied geography.

    • Hi Jade,

      Several dialects are spoken in Croatia such as Italian, Czech, Serbian, Chakavian, Burgenland Croatian, German, English, Ukrainian, Romani, and even Yiddish and Hebrew:)

      So in term of language, there is nothing to worry about!

From childhood, I wanted to ride in a chartered yacht. It is one kind of my dream. In this article, I see all kind of chewed catamaran charter review. Those are expensive to bear can you recommend me a cheaper chartered yacht for a holiday?

    This summer I’m planning to go to Croatia and also go to the see. Thanks for this post.

  8. Hi, first of I really would like to compliment how clean and professional the way you have made your blog. That being said I am wondering who do you talk to if you’re interested to charter a boat? In your experience which of the different types of boat would you personally recommend and why?Which of the different types of charter will you get the most value for your money?

    • Hi Joseph

      Thank you for the compliment!

      Once you decide to charter a boat, you send an inquiry, and a reliable yacht charter specialist will get back to you as soon as possible. A catamaran is a type of boat, and that is what is suggested in the article. Why sail a catamaran? Because they are super comfortable, very spacious, and relatively fast.

      You’ll get the most value for your money with a crewed yacht charter. You can be sure about this!

  9. I love water sports and I absolutely love seafood, so Croatia seems like the perfect destination for me. Also, I have heard that it is very affordable compared to other exotic locations. I can see chartering a boat here. Sounds absolutely wonderful! I will have to try and be budget conscious, so is there a charter company that might be a little easier on the budget?

    • Hi Matt,

      I agree with you, Croatia is the perfect destination for seafood and watersport lovers! No doubt about this, you’ll love this place!
      Many yacht charter companies are affordable. The price depends mainly on the type of yacht, destination, the age, length, and type of charter. You should take a look at the list of boats available for charter in Croatia. Some of them are inexpensive and well maintained.

      I hope it helped. Please, don’t hesitate to contact me with any question. I’ll be more than happy to assist.
      Thank you for the comment and wish you a lovely day.
