Family Sailing Holidays
Croatia sailing routes
Take this route and get to know Central Dalmatia! Eat fresh local food and sail around islands.
Safety first. And the best way to make it safe is to get all the potential fear out of the way.
Show them the boat, let them talk to the skipper about the rules while sailing and while you are anchored, take them to the cabins, show them the interesting way of flushing the toilet, etc.
Teach them where to sit – they should be on the bow during sailing and only accompanied by an adult. They should also learn how to lower themselves into the sea with the help of a ladder.
Living on a boat is essentially fun for them!
The boat you are renting should also have a safety net along the deck. Every child must have a life vest of appropriate size. They must try it on and wear it during sailing until you and them get comfortable with being on a boat.
Remind your kids to drink water more than other days!
As for any type of summer vacation, the sun is your biggest frenemy. Use waterproof lotions with high protection factors and ensure physical protection from the sun.
Documents and essentials
As in real life, you have to have personal documents always beside you. We recommend you bring your health insurance card with you – just in case. Also, bring cash. Not all places accept credit cards. You are responsible for the documents and money you bring to keep them safe.
Even though it is summer, there is always a possibility that the nights and winds are cold. So be prepared.
Check the weather forecast and pack clothes for sunny and cold days: bathing suits, summer dresses, shorts, t-shirts and don’t forget to bring something warmer or waterproof.
Shoes are also very important! During the days you will probably be barefoot but in case of rain bring some non-slippery shoes. Or if you want to blend in – buy so-called boat shoes or some sports shoes that are made for easier moving on the deck.
Water-resistant bags are life saviors for your electronic devices. Bring those with you so your phone and camera can sleep safely.
Hygiene and health concerns
Bring along ecologically acceptable items for personal hygiene. Always keep in mind the sea and environment protection.
Also, sometimes you have to bring your own beach towels. You can always ask us and we will check with the charter of your boat.
On your sailboat there is already a first aid kit, but if you want you can take a small one with you. Also, if any family member has prescription medicines, take them with you.
Take something with you for seasickness, mosquito protection, and insect bites.
“We were a group of 5 people and we sailed 3 days from the marina in Rogoznica, trough the Kaprije island, to the Kornati islands and back to Rogoznica.”
„It was a wonderful time that I spent with my friends and family on our tour with the sailing ship along the Croatian coast!”
„I spent a wonderful week of sailing in Croatia. Everything went smoothly and was well organized.”
The sailing trip was just fantastic! Thank you for organizing! In addition to the unbelievably beautiful ship, a large share of course goes to the skipper Marco. It was really great! We intend to do that again soon.
We loved our week aboard a sailing boat. The company is very organized and it was super easy to book the trip the way we wanted. It’s a very personalised service.
