Sailing through Croatia with Busabout

Imagine waking up to breakfast being served on an outdoor deck by the ocean and spending the days exploring ancient towns on idyllic islands – this is exactly what I experienced on the Split-to-Split sailing tour with Busabout.

I chose this tour as it seemed like an awesome way to cover a lot of the islands along the Dalmatian coast. The convenience of having our accommodation and most meals organized was also a huge bonus. It left us time to truly appreciate our surroundings and spend time getting to know other like-minded travellers as we discovered Croatia’s coastline over eight days.

We booked our tour using an early-bird discount and as I was a student at the time it only cost me around $650. We toured in May so escaped the crowds of tourists flocking to the coast for summer.

Breakfast and lunch was served on-board each day while most dinners were enjoyed on-shore. We spent the evenings experiencing the local night life at many of the vibrant bars and nightclubs in the towns and villages.

During the day, we had plenty of opportunities to anchor up and dive into the Adriatic for a refreshing swim or soak up the sunshine on the open-top deck of our boat.

Hopefully some of the photos below give you an insight into how amazing this trip was and inspire you to experience it for yourself one day!

As you can see by the photos, this was a magic 8 days spent sailing the Dalmatian coast.

How does it compare?

I also sailed Turkey with Busabout so comparing the two, we spent a lot more time on land with our Croatia cruise as the boat was docked up each night. Not only did this allow us more time to discover the sights onshore, but this also made it much more of a ‘party boat’ as we could bar-hop throughout the town each evening.

I preferred the relaxed style of the Turkey Sailing trip, although that being said, I would still recommend a Buasbout Sailing trip through Croatia as it’s a great way to meet other travellers and visit many beautiful places in one short week.
