Sail party Croatia island hopping cruises are a legendary experience. It's the ultimate way to see the best of Croatia, from Split & Hvar to Dubrovnik city.
Find the perfect holiday this summer with Sail party Croatia, dedicated to young-minded travellers. Discover the sparkling blue adriatic sea, as you hop from one spectacular island to the next. Relax in warm waters, sunbathe on deck, swim in secluded bays, and wander the streets of iconic old towns. You’ll uncover the biggest highlights of this wonderful country from the UNESCO city of Dubronik to secluded natural bays. As we cruise, our guests indulge in delicious food, freshly prepared by our boat staff. Our sail Croatia navigator boats also have a fully stocked bar, so there doesn’t have to be a dry minute in the day!
When it all gets too much, simply cool off in the aqua waters and prepare yourself for another night of exploration! During this Croatia sailing party you’ll discover some of Europe’s best kept secrets, from Hvar’s day time beach parties to nightclubs within caves! Mixmag labelled it ‘Eastern Ibiza’ and Cosmopolitan magazine wrote ‘it’s where the cool people are now hanging out!’ We think it’s time you found out for yourselves! Get ready for the ultimate island hopping Croatia experience. Relax, swim, eat, play, party, repeat!
Your departure and meeting point will be in Split. Departures are always on Saturday at 12:00 h mid day, so you’ll need to check in around about 10am. Most guests will arrive a day early, and stay in a private apartment or hostel for 1 night, so there is no chance of missing the boats departure. At approximately 13.00 your Sail party Croatia starts, and we set sail along the Dalmatian coastline for our first destination. But before we get there, we’ll have our first swim stop. Your captain will find a secluded bay, and with no other boats around, we can make as much noise as we like! From here, we push onto to Makarska, a gorgeous town set on the side of a stunning mountain back drop. Stroll along the streets or take on the awesome nightlife. We recommend the Cave Club here!
SUNDAY: Makarska - Mljet
Wake up and you’ll probably already find the boat is on its way to Mljet, famous for its stunning national park, inland lakes and tranquility. On Mljet, we recommend renting either a small boat or mountain bikes and do some exploring. Feeling lazy? No problem, sun bathe ontop of the boats or swim in the Adriatic Sea, and relax. Tonights overnight stay will be the small port Pomena or Polaca.
MONDAY: Mljet - Dubrovnik
Today, our Croatia island hopping party heads for the most iconic city of Southern Europe. Get stuck into another big breakfast and hold tight for Dubrovnik. I’m sure you’ve seen many pictures of this city in magazines and on billboards, well now’s your chance to explore this incredible old town for yourselves. To quote the writer George Bernard Shaw ‘i believe i have found heaven on earth’. We highly recommend to everyone to walk the old town walls and through the ‘Stradun’, a grand promenade inside the city walls. Overnight in the port of this magical old town, you’ll find two nightclubs and many pubs & busy bars.
TUESDAY: Dubrovnik - Sipan / Trstenik
From Dubrovnik we cruise to either Sipan or Trstenik, both are small scenic towns on the Peljesac peninsula, and again a perfect rest stop for swimming and taking in the nearby nature. Here we’ll chill and immerse ourselves in the laid back Croatian culture. But for sure, the onboard bar will liven things up at any point. Again, these stunning islands are perfect for your own explorations. Find your own hidden cove and jump into the inviting warm waters with your new friends. Feel the relaxation set in!
WEDNESDAY: Sipan / Trstenik - Korcula
Onwards to the birth place of Marco Polo, ‘Korcula’. This spectacular Island is often a highlight for many on Sail party Croatia. You’ll soon be able to judge for yourselves. Get lost in the maze of old town walk ways, discover churches and monuments and find the zest of this lovely Island. There are many great cocktail bars, and we recommend finding one to watch the perfect sunset.
THURSDAY: Korcula - Hvar
Today’s departure is for the Pakleni Islands for lunch and swimming, then departure for Hvar after lunch. Interestingly, Hvar is the longest island on the Adriatic. Here we can discover the Renaissance cathedral with its original towers; also the oldest community theatre in Europe was founded here back in 1612. Also, Hvar offers abundant evening entertainment full of restaurants, bars and cafes that are open long into the night. Our top tip, is to walk to the top of the Island and take the views from the castle.
The biggest nightlife spot in Hvar is Carpe-diem club, with international DJs, VIP boothes and court yards as dancefloors. Carpe Diem is the Ibiza life, and signifies what the Croatia sailing party is all about. For day sessions, try Hula Hula which is the favourite beach hangout for trendy island hopping folk. On the pine covered hillside, you’ll find – Veneranda Club, looking over the harbour. This all night disco closes around 5am and is another place worth checking out. For the stylish and lavish lounge bar vibes, head to Zimmer Frei, Pink Champagne bar and also try The Top, which is located on the roof of the Adriana Hotel.
FRIDAY: Hvar - Brac (Bol) - Split
Our next stop on Sail Croatia will be the island of Brac. Swimming is planned at one of the most famous beaches in Dalmatia, called Zlatni Rat (near Bol). It’s also known as the Golden cape, due to its look and shape. Due to the wind changes, it changes shape and direction throughout the day. Bol is another lively town, and another great stop on this epic cruise. After lunch we will start our journey back to Split where the last overnight is planned for your group. Once our party boats arrive in Split, we recommend you explore the Unesco old town and walk the many corridors of this amazing city. On the evening walk to other side of the bay, and find the sea front nightclubs.
We have breakfast, then after which it is time to say goodbye to the crew and all your new friends!

In case of bad behavior Green World Holidays or captain reserves the right in asking clients to disembark
Boats are moored side by side, often there can be 6 other boats pulled together. If you are the last boat, it will mean moving over the other boats.

Do call our staff with questions.
Every tourist in Croatia must register and pay a local tax at hotels, guest houses and onboard ships. The captain collects passports at the start of the trip for registration and these are returned at the end of trip. If guests need passports through the week for any reason they are returned.

B category boats are our most popular choice for Sail party Croatia. It’s a great cost saver, allowing for twin bunk cabins, all with shared on deck bathroom facilities. All category B boats offer plenty of sun and shaded space. So chilling in comfort is not an issue. We think, the B-CAT boats are perfect for anyone under 35, young spirited and happy to used shared wash facilities. These are the liveliest motor-sail yachts we offer, and you’re going to meet lots of people that want to see it all in the day, and do it all at night! Please note, that the gallery pictures are from a selection boats, and styles will vary alot.
– Cabins private with shared wc/shower facilities – so not en-suite – Bunk bed style – No single supplements, when sharing with a same sex traveler – Shared electrical outlets [not found within the cabins] – No towels provided
A Category Boats
Category A boats are a nice upgrade for a Croatia sailing party. Many of these classic boats are bunk bedded, but double & twin cabins can be requested – but never guaranteed. An exclusive feature of the A category boat is that all cabins offer a private en-suite bathroom. Additionally, these gorgeous boats offer towels, board games and ample shaded and sun deck space to laze about! The cabins are bigger than the B CAT boats, but still do not offer air conditioning. Do note: pictures are from a selection boats, styles will vary.
Our A Cat cruise boats are perfect for discerning working professional travellers looking for a blend of sightseeing, relaxation and socialising. Best suited for couples, and ‘young at heart’ travellers.
– Cabins private with En-suite shower & toilet – Bunk bed style – No single supplements, when sharing with a same sex traveler – Electrical/power points in cabin

Greetings Russell, Please forgive the delay in making my feedback, it has been a little hectic of late!To answer your question in a nutshell:
Flights – excellent. Good old Easy Jet! Transfers – Inbound – excellent, Outbound – adequate (but dont worry we didn’t book transfers with this holiday]. Our sailing boat – excellent. The captain was particularly helpful and courteous. I cannot say the same for the cook , who was extremely rude. I have complained to the cruise management independently. Croatia’s islands are beautiful, full of history , culture and architecture. Evenings were spent in many nice cocktail bars and thumping clubs, and the days were perfect to recover on deck or in the aqua waters. A great trip in conclusion.

Sail croatia was simply incredible, everything I expected and alot more unexpected. Days consisted of hangovers-breakfast-swim-chill-food-beer’oclock-swim-sun-food-bars-clubs-sunrise-bed-nextday- repeat haha the simple life! The people I met were so awesome, our crew worked quietly in the background, ships food was a highlight and the socialable atmosphere around the table will make dinners seem so quiet now. The islands were all so special, maybe Korcula was my favourite for it’s amazing sunset but every place had it’s own personality and vibe. Evenings were lively, if one boat was having a night off another was finding 5th gear. Everyone goes at there on pace, no pressures, everyone is just relaxing and getting on. In alot of cases, getting on very well lol The locals are friendly, and don’t seem to mind the bad dancing and thirst for cheap beer, I think alot of people commented on the safety. Again, this helped people unwind and adjust quickly to new environments each day. I would recommend anyone looking to meet nice people, that like nightlife but enjoy the beauty and culture of new lands to jump on boat for the Sail party croatia. Good times await fo-sho. Thanks peeps
Sail Croatia is more than sailing

You don’t need to pack much for this trip. Shorts and vest for days, shirt and trainers for evenings. Just go with a fun attitude, and you’ll meet so many people so easily. Often the boats are moored together, so walking over and between u meet the other ship mates. So come the 3rd day u get familiar with 30 odd faces. Great bunch on my boat, obviously the best crew. We relaxed together in the day, and partied into the wee hours on the evenings, it was genuine atmosphere of strangers just getting along. Most people came in twos or groups, but there was no cleakyness at all. Great party, sail croatia is totally worth trying
Great holiday in Croatia

The only gutting point was leaving. And i shouldn’t have booked a cabin, as I woke on the top deck 3 nights. Wicked times and deserves it’s rep as being a must try. Great to see Dubrovnik, and walk the old town Walls. Had been staring at pictures of this since I booked this sail party croatia. Great feeling to have been there now. Surprisingly this wasn’t even the highlight. The smaller islands are so scenic, sort of post card perfect. The golden horn beach is the best, would have been great to have had more time to try the kite surfing. Machareska was my favourite night on the town, ended 4am in the Cave Club, pubs are busy plenty of good looking locals to disperse the boat invasions. Croatian people are sound and certainly like to party hard too. Must say thanks to the men on deck, cracking sail crew, the cook was a legend, all round top guys and made everyone on board feel very welcome attending to all requests. High praise for sure. Rock on sail croatia, ten ten

7 nights of epic nightlife and 8 days of total relaxation. Really lost all track of time on this trip by day 2. My ship was so quality, everyone on board got on so well, you’d have thought we came as friends not strangers. That’s the vibe on sail party croatia, like minded good souls looking for sun & fun with no attitude. As my Aussie friends would say – epic!
So sooooo good

Hey, two of my close friends booked with you and told me to go and check out Sail party Croatia. I’m very happy to say they were right to be so positive with there comments. I rarely write back to companies to say thanks, but considering you’ve just organised one of the best weeks of my life, I really wanted you to share my joys. It was an amazing seven days, your sail team are really good people, the boat crew were brilliant with us and in reflection I can’t believe we did so many activities and stayed in so many new locations. Hvar was brilliant (maybe my favourite spot) and that nightclub Carpe Diem was recommended, although pricier than most of the other places. The stop and swim locations were divine! No one else around, just our boat and a secluded bay. Even the naked Germans couldn’t reach these spots. Quality and price wise, worth every penny. As you can read, I’m very happy, i’m flying the flag high for Sail party Croatia. Best Regards

Q: Who joins these boats? Who are your typical guests? A: Our boats are mainly welcoming people from England, Australia, New Zealand, Scotland and Ireland – aimed at cool-like-minded-relaxed travellers. We like to think of these holidays, as completely chav free, so our guests tend to be young professionals, that are looking for a mixture of sightseeing, relaxation and socialising.
Q: Is food included? A:Yes, your stay is half board, so that means breakfast and lunch is included every day. Evening dinners are not included as we encourage you to explore the local towns, and discover the local food and wine. Breakfast is continental style and lunches are usually three courses, with a soup/salad starter, main course and fruit/cake for dessert. For sure – you won’t go hungry!
Q: What do you do for vegetarian’s and Vegans? A: We don’t cook specifically for vegetarians or travellers with special meal requests. Vegetarians will enjoy larger amounts of vegetables and salad.

We will put a note next to your name on the list of guests so the crew can be prepared. At the time of your check-in, please introduce yourself to the cook or waiter so they are aware of who you are and you can discuss anything in particular with them. Communication is key!
Q: How much extra money do i need? A: 25 Euros to 30 Euros or GB £25 to £30 per day can provide you with additional meals and optional entrances. ATM machines are widely available in ports and islands.
Q: How do i power my iphone and cameras? A: Boats have European 2 pin-style points which can be used for charging phones, cameras and use of hairdryers, etc. B-category boats have powerpoints in shared areas [not the cabins]. En-suite rooms [A Cat & A+ boats] have power points in their rooms.
Boats and cabins
Q: Tell me more about the boat categories & cabins A: No problem, read below:
B-category boats, are 2 bed cabins, which are usually bunk beds. B-category boats are favoured amongst the young-minded travellers [ages from 18-35]. B-category boats have shared bathrooms and toilets.
A-category boats, are 2 bed cabins, which are usually bunk beds [some twins & doubles on request only!]. A-category boats are favoured amongst the young-minded, working professional traveller [ages from 25-44]. These cabins offer en-suite private bathrooms and wc/showers.
A+ plus-category boats, are 2 bed cabins, which are usually twins & doubles. A+ plus-category boats offer en-suite private bathrooms and wc/showers, larger space, air-con, daily changing/cleaning, sun-beds on deck, and additional extras.
Premier plus-category boats, have everything of the A+ standard, but offer even more facilities like hot tubs on deck, and boutique bedrooms [perfect for romantic stays or high-end luxury].
Q: What is the difference between ‘above’ and ‘below’ deck cabins? A: Above deck is situated on the main deck of the boat. Below deck cabins are found in the hull of the boat.
A benefit with the cheaper below deck is often they are much cooler as they don’t heat up as much during the day. The benefit with the above deck is they are on the top of the deck with most above deck cabins opening out to the ocean. There are pro’s and con’s to both – the below deck cabins are often quieter at night as you do not have other travellers walking past your cabin as much as the above deck cabins. Above deck cabins offer more natural light and ventilation. Each boat is unique and therefore the cabin layout does vary from boat to boat. Please note: On some of the boats the above deck cabins are located on 2 levels, i.e. on deck and upper deck.
Q: Who owns the boats? A: The boats we operate with are owned and run privately. Our local operations team in Croatia ensures all boats and crew operate to a high standard. In the rare occurance that there is a small problem, our local staff will react to your request immediately.
Q: How many people per boat? A: This depends on the size of the sail boat, but the average boat size is around 25 people. Ensuite boats accommodate on average 30 people, with the Premier ships taking an average of 38 people.
Q: Are solo travellers welcome? A: Yes. If you are prepared to stay with a same ‘sex’ traveller, there will be no single supplement charge. If you would like your own room/cabin – single supplement fees will have to be charged.
