About the Montenegro flotilla

New for 2017, the Montenegro flotilla visits this increasingly popular sailing area. The flotilla starts from Dubrovnik in Croatia so you get to visit two countries.

The Dubrovnik start gives the opportunity to explore this beautiful historic city. There’s also a practical reason – you can fly direct from several UK airports whereas there are as yet no direct flights from the UK to the Montenegrin bases.

The highlight of the week is a visit to Kotor, set in a stunning fjord-like bay. You can explore the old city and walk the medieval city walls high up the hill behind the town.

By contrast, Tivat has seen much recent development, including a super yacht friendly marina. At the other extreme, Zanjice Bay provides a quieter stop, with possible excursions to the Blue Cave and fortress island of Maluma. Then it’s back to Croatia for the penultimate night.

If you want a longer trip, there’s a two week flotilla option, giving an extra week in Croatia, or you could spend a second week bareboating around Montenegro.

The Montenegro flotilla runs on the following dates in 2017:
