NauticEd Friends and Family 2022 Croatia Flotilla

A 2022 Croatia flotilla to Central Dalmatia, Croatia in June 18-25

UPDATE: THIS FLOTILLA IS SOLD OUT – JOIN US IN 2023. Join NauticEd for a family-friendly 2022 Croatia Flotilla in June.  Last year’s similar flotilla was so fun, we’ve decided to make it an annual event.  The Dalmatian coast is a great area for sailing as well as exploring the ancient cities, beaches, and hidden bays and coves. There are plenty of activities on and off the water for travelers of all ages.

Join us by taking a cabin or chartering your own boat and celebrate the end of the Covid lockdown!

What is a family-friendly flotilla? Who will lead the flotilla?

The 2022 Croatia Flotilla is a casual flotilla without a ‘theme.’ This is NOT an adult-only flotilla, a party yacht week, or a flotilla focusing solely on hiking or wines or yoga.  We’re laid back and run our flotillas that way. Of course, you’re welcome to explore as you see fit.   There is a no ducks in a row mentality; a flotilla offers you independence with peace of mind as well as fun and camaraderie with other flotilla sailors.

The NauticEd team are experts at charters – we will provide pre-charter advice, set the course and itinerary and include recommendations on things to do and see.  We’ll provide options for moorings (marinas, mooring balls, or perhaps you prefer to anchor under the stars) as well as optional activities along the way.  We will be there for any questions you might have.  We will send out a guide with itinerary and details ahead of the charter.

Additional Information:

Qualifications to Bareboat Charter

Licenses:  To bareboat charter a yacht in Croatia, you must have an appropriate sailing license.  There are several accepted licenses including the ICC, and the NauticEd SLC.  If you are unsure if you qualify, please ask us and we can assist.  If you have experience but do not have a license, visit www.nauticed.org/SLC or contact NauticEd today.  Without a doubt, you should be competent at Mediterranean Mooring and have significant sailing experience in your resume.

‘Home” Base & Travel Information

We will be embarking and disembarking from Trogir (near split). The boats are located in the Seget Donji Marina in Trogir. You can fly direct to Split airport with many carriers (airport code SPU). The marina is just 20 minutes away from Split International Airport. From the airport, you can take a taxi, Uber, or public transportation to the marina.

Many people choose to explore other parts of Croatia before or after the sailing vacation.

  • Dubrovnik—The distance from Split to Dubrovnik is approximately 230km or a very spectacular 3.5 hour drive away and well worth it. In reality it will take 6 hours because of the awesome stops along the way. Dubrovnik also has an international airport (code DBV)
  • Zadar—The distance from Split to Zadar is approximately 159km or a 1 hr, 45 minute drive away. Zadar airport code is ZAD.
  • Zagreb—Zagreb is the capital of Croatia. It has the largest airport in Croatia (code ZAG). It is approximately a 6-7 hr train ride away from Split.
