Croatia Dalmatia flotillas

The Mid Dalmatia flotillas sail Croatia’s most popular cruising area. As you sail between islands there are three national parks to visit. The area also includes the historic towns of Split, Trogir and Primosten.

The Dalmatia flotillas offer sailing itineraries of great variety. Heading north, you have the beautiful Kornati, Krka and Telascica National Parks. To the south, islands including Hvar, Vis, Solta and Brac offer stops from sleepy fishing villages to buzzing holiday towns.

The two week Dalmatia flotillas visit both parts. If you can only spare a week, you’ll need to pick between the northern and southern areas. But be warned: You’ll want to come back and do the other half next year. Then you’ll want a further two weeks because all the routes visit different places! There’s remarkably little overlap. Small wonder that this is one of the top selling flotilla areas.

    About The Kornati Flotilla

    The Kornati flotilla explores Croatia’s famous National Park. Unusually, it avoids marinas with the high charges, using restaurant quays. The flotilla sails from Zaton, near Sibenik. The nearest airport is Split.

    Flights from:Gatwick, Luton, Stansted, Bristol, Leeds, Manchester, Newcastle, Belfast
    Qualifications:to sail yourself: minimum RYA Day Skipper Practical or ICC plus one person with VHF certificate.

    The Kornati flotilla takes in a variety of stops, from uninhabited islands to small towns. There’s even a chance to visit a second National Park: The fabulous Krka waterfalls at Skradin are well worth a visit.

    The fleet is generally relatively new but there are a few older boats for the budget conscious. Yachts from 2 to 5 cabins are available, including catamarans.

    More about the Kornati Flotilla

    The Kornati flotilla is an intermediate flotilla, ideal for those with a little previous experience. Beginners will cope but there are easier options (though not in Croatia).

    The nearest airport is Split. The airport is well served by flights from the UK. Most are provided by low cost carriers. The flotilla is the usual Saturday start.

    The operator offers optional airport transfers. It’s about a 50-60 minute trip from Split Airport.

    Those wanting sail training can take an instructor on board their yacht, or take a berth on a Tuition Yacht. Those not wanting training are also welcome to join the Tuition Yacht. This opens the flotilla to those not wanting to take their own yacht, including singles.

      • Bol (Brac) The oldest town on Brac, Bol sits at the foot of the highest mountain in the Adriatic islands, Mt. Vidova Gora. The area is rich in history but the main draw is Zlatni Rat beach.

      • Milna (Brac) The Russians based their fleet here during the Napoleonic wars, in the days before half the harbour in the centre of town was turned in to a marina.

      • Split The historical city of Split is Croatia’s second largest city, though with less than 200,000 inhabitants it’s pocket sized.

      More about the Mid Dalmatia flotillas

      The Mid Dalmatia flotillas require only moderate experience. They are not ideal for novice skippers and crews. This is particularly true in high season when winds are a little stronger. But they are well within the capabilities of those with previous flotilla experience. Winds are typically force 2-4, sometimes 5 in the afternoons when there can be Katabatic gusts off the hillsides.

      Dalmatia flotillas: scenery, history, sunshinse and sailing

      Dalmatia flotillas: scenery, history, sunshinse and sailing

      You must hold a recognised skippers certificate to sail yourself.  There is a Government issued lis which includes the RYA Day Skipper and ICC. Someone on board will also need a VHF certificate.

      These rules apply to all Dalmatia flotillas. In fact they apply to all yacht charters and flotillas in Croatia, not matter how experienced you are.

      If you lack these qualifications, you can hire a skipper or take a course (see Learn to sail below).

      The Dalmatia flotillas start from Trogir and from Zaton (near Sibenik). Both bases are best reached via Split airport. Zaton is not too much further from Zadar airport.

      Transfers times for Trogir are about 10-15 minutes. For Zaton it’s about 50-60 minutes. Split is served by direct flights from Gatwick, Heathrow, Stansted, Luton, Bristol, Leeds, Manchester and Newcastle.

      All these Dalmatia flotillas are available as a package with flights or flotilla only. Booking flotilla only and buying your own flights works out cheaper. The operators offer optional airport transfers for those buying their own flights.

      Learn to sail on Mid Dalmatia FlotillaS

      On the Dalmatia flotillas from Zaton, there’s the option of taking sailing courses. The operator’s RYA accredited sailing school offers Competent Crew, ICC and Day Skipper courses. Personalised tuition is also available. You can either join the school’s Tuition Yacht, booked by the berth/cabin, or you can have a yacht and instructor to yourselves.
