Wonders of Croatia Gulet Cruise

Wonders of Croatia Gulet Cruise

£799 per person

Join us onboard our new gulet The Sole and experience the Wonders of Croatia, our new itinerary for Summer 2022. Our new 6 cabin, 24-meter-long traditional sailing gulet offers the most relaxing way to discover the wonders of the stunning Croatian coastline and surrounding islands.

The Sole is furnished in the traditional gulet style of rich mahogany and polished teak wood. Recently refitted, this two-mast boat is wonderfully comfortable and extremely well maintained. The experience of travelling under-sail while listening to the gentle sound of the sea is a beautiful and unforgettable experience.

The gulet offers 6 cabin accommodation (4 double cabins and 2 superior double cabins) and sleeps a maximum of 12 people, with ensuite to each cabin. Bed linen, towels, hair dryer and beach towel are provided in each cabin and all linen is changed midweek on your stay. The salon lounge is equipped with a TV and it is a great place to relax and enjoy a drink in the evening. There is a large dining table on the rear deck of the boat where you can enjoy delicious  meals prepared by our on-board chef. The gulet also offers a bar where drinks are available to purchase until around 11pm. Wi-fi connection is also provided.

The experienced Croatian crew is comprised of the captain who has overall responsibility for the boat, a chef, a steward and a deck hand. They are all there to ensure that you have a safe and enjoyable holiday. The experience onboard our gulets is very much like that of a small boutique hotel. The staff - who all speak English - will do their upmost to meet any needs you might have whilst holidaying with us, as well as sharing their knowledge and love of this beautiful country, its stunning coastline and its amazing history.

While on The Sole, you will be able to enjoy some gulet pastimes - we have fishing gear for you to use and snorkelling equipment so that you can fully discover the beautiful marine life within the crystal-clear water. Perhaps you would like to take out a canoe... Swimming is the most popular activity and there will be plenty of opportunities to take a dip in the warm, calm waters of the Adriatic Sea.

The experience of a gulet holiday is very different from that of a cruise on a big ship. You can't help but feel a much greater connection with the sea while the intimacy of a smaller boat means many guests make friendships that last a lifetime. Above anything else it is fun, exciting and relaxing experience which offers you a real break from the routine of day-to-day life. A gulet cruise offers a great environment for reflection and resetting from our busy lives and a good hearty vitamin sea!

The Experience

Relaxation is really the name of the game.  With a crew dedicated to your comfort, enjoyment and safety, you are left free to enjoy both the sailing and the shore visits.  The nature of our small group cruises means there will be ample opportunity to get to know your fellow guests.  The planned itinerary provides a combination of visits to historic towns and villages as well as more remote parts of the coastline, with plenty of time for the superb swimming in the crystal waters of the Adriatic.

Occasionally weather conditions will require a change to the planned route and these decisions are always in the hands of the captain. Breakfast and lunch (or dinner on change-over days) are prepared and served on board whilst for other meals you are free to choose a local restaurant. Please note there are three menus available on board (Normal, vegetarian and gluten free) and we are not able to cater for vegan or any other requirements.

The crew operates a well-stocked and reasonably priced bar and guests are not permitted to bring their own alcohol on board. Storage space on board is limited so we advise you to bring as little luggage as possible packed in soft bags.

During most of the season the gulet is available for individual cabin charter, but we are also able to offer whole boat charters subject to availability.
