About the route
Split, Kaštela or Trogir
Split International airport is only 10-15 km away from all marinas in the area. We can arrange a transfer from the airport to the marina for you. Transfer is not included in the price.
Sailing from Split and around the islands of the Dalmatian archipelago attracts many seafarers with its magical beauty and unspoiled nature.
During the sailing season, the archipelago becomes full of life and colors. In secluded bays of pristine nature, you can find your oasis of peace.
There are many kids activities in Split and Dalmatian islands that will make your family holidays memorable. Croatia has always been a child-friendly destination, and it’s one of the safest family destinations in Europe.
The plan for the first day is to arrive on Saturday in Split and get to the Marina. Your check-in on the boat will be at 5 PM and you will spend the night there. Without hiding their pride, the people of Split will tell you that their city is “the most beautiful one in the world and beyond”! The story about Split town is already 17 centuries old, dating to the time the Roman Emperor Diocletian decided to build his Palace right on the peninsula near the great Roman city Salona, where he wanted to spend the last years of his life.
You are wondering what to do with kids in Split? Great news, Split is the perfect city for families!
It is time to set sail and head towards the oldest Croatian town, Starigrad situated on the island of Hvar, one of the most popular islands on the Croatian coast. For centuries Stari Grad was a safe harbor to sailors, which have been welcomed by town inhabitants on harbor promenade.
Stari Grad is a quiet, lazy place with lots of local flavour. The stone buildings and streets of the old town have been exquisitely restored and feature small local shops and boutiques.
Sail out of Stari Grad towards Pakleni islands which are situated in front of Hvar town. Imagine an island where the air is clean and there are no streets, where your kids can run around freely…
Vinogradišće bay will welcome you with the exotic plants, art and relics, hidden bays and crystal-clear shallow waters perfect for swimming, diving, snorkeling, kayaking …
Its exclusiveness is on the island itself; untouched nature and the people that haven’t been possessed by tourist commercialization. Interesting fact: “Mamma Mia! Here we go again” musical was filmed here.
Before berthing in Vis town, you will stop by in Stončica bay where kids can enjoy the sandy beach.
On your way to Komiža you will have a long and fun day of sailing, swimming and exploring. Some of the spots you will visit are Green Cave on Ravnik islet and Stiniva beach, one of the most photographed beaches in Croatia.
Komiža is a picturesque fisherman’s town with the sunniest days in a year, hundred-year-old carob trees, stone houses, medicinal Mediterranean plants and vineyards.
Blue Cave is a must-see if you are in Komiža. It is 5 NM away from Komiža on the island of Biševo. The best time to enter a Blue cave is around noon when the colors are spectacular. After visiting this great natural wonder you will sail towards the island of Šolta.
Šolta is undoubtedly one of the must-see destinations on this route. It is an island famous for its olive trees and olive oil making traditions as well as honey making tradition, made from wild rosemary. Locally it is called Olintio and it has been in use since ancient times.
Maslinica on the island Šolta has just been awarded the “Best Authentic Coastal Destination (small town)” where you can enjoy spectacular sunsets.
