Discover Croatia

More than 1,200 islands dot the Adriatic Sea off the coast of Croatia, easily making it one of the most delightful sailing locations in all Europe. Croatia’s intricate coastline and its offshore islands provide shear cliffs and dramatic reefs, protected inlets and anchorages throughout. But out of all those islands, only about 50 are inhabited. There are three prime sailing regions in Croatia: Istria, Kvarner and Dalmatia. Sailing base operations are centrally located along the Adriatic in the cities of Sibenik and Trogir. Although Croatia and the Adriatic may not yet be well known to North American sailors, the country offers true sailing adventures, and Sail Austin Charters stands ready to make those sailing dreams a reality.
