Ancient Trade Routes of Croatia

Explore the history & sailing traditions of Croatia on the trail of the ancient Greek and Roman voyagers

Croatia is an ancient trade route for merchants and pirates traveling the seas between east and west.  Following these trade routes, hideouts and enclaves, you’ll meander the coastal islands, unspoiled villages & boutique wineries from Dubrovnik to Split.  Visit ancient monasteries, medieval walled towns, pirate coves and UNESCO historical sites with the comfort and ease of living on-board with spacious cabins, on-board chef, full crew and specially selected wines.

Customize your sail and add  a whole new dimension to your adventure with one of our SPECIAL INTEREST OPTIONS

You’ll moor in out of the way places, sail into small harbors, visit island villages and stop to enjoy the spectacular hidden bays, swimming & sea the Adriatic is famous for.  Your culture and wine tours are arranged for you privately as well as special meals on board and at the wine estates and cellars.
