Croatia Gay Sailing Trip 2023: Join us!

After the success of our last two gay sailing trips, first Mykonos and then Croatia, we are extremely excited to announce another gay sailing trip to the very beautiful Croatia!

We first experienced Croatia in a couple of years ago and it blew us away. We have travelled all over the world and yet never seen such perfect crystal clear waters – the ideal place to set sail!

This Croatian gay sailing trip will set sail 22nd July 2023 from Split and finish in Dubrovnik (register your interest now as this will be first come first served).

You will spend 7 days island-hopping along the picturesque Dalmatian coast!

Our route includes the vibrant islands of Hvar and Korčula, the peaceful national park Mljet and magical islands in between.

We will stop in secluded bays for swim breaks and explore the hidden gems that are only accessible by boat.

The plan is to switch off and relax as we spend leisurely days at sea navigating some of the Adriatic’s more remote islands and making new friends.

You can learn how to sail, or just spend afternoons lazing on your yacht and topping up your tan, before wandering secluded villages as our crew take their time to show you another side of Croatia.

After our previous trips to Croatia, we can not wait to go back and see more! Read on for further details of how to join (just leave your contact details at the bottom of this page).
