Trip overview

From the world-famous walled city of Dubrovnik to the lush green paradise of Mljet, our Croatia Sail Adventure covers the absolute best of Croatia over 10 blissful days. You’ll explore towns with ancient Roman roots, swim in hidden bays, feast on fresh seafood, discover epic waterfalls, sip tropical cocktails, check out the sights via bike and kayak and party the night away, all while sailing away on our premium boat. Oh, and did we mention you’ll be doing this with an experienced group leader and instant crew of new friends? Slap on your SPF and pack your swimmers, this is the sailing trip of a lifetime.

Trip itinerary

Day 1

Arrive & meet your group On arrival in Split, we’ll be there at the airport to greet you and take you to our hostel in the heart of Split’s Old Town. After you’ve checked in you’ll have plenty of time to relax and refresh before meeting the rest of the group. Tonight we head out for dinner and drinks, getting our first taste of the laid-back Croatian lifestyle.

Day 2

Split Walking Tour & Makarska Today we’ll gain our first glimpse into Croatia’s turbulent past with a guided tour of Split. After learning the ancient history, at midday we’re hopping onto our premium boat, aka home for the next week. We have roomy en-suite cabins, air-con, huge sundecks and our own private bar… boat life is calling! As we begin sailing we’ll have a three-course lunch on board, before jumping into the water on our first swim stop. Later this afternoon we dock in Makarska, a beautiful resort town framed by mountains and beaches. (L)

Day 3

Explore Mljet National Park This morning we’re sailing to Mljet, a secluded island sanctuary in the heart of the Adriatic. After a hot buffet breakfast, our captain will anchor in a hidden bay, getting us used to the Croatian routine of swim, eat, explore, repeat. After another three-course feast of locally sourced food (think meat, seafood and fresh veg), our boat will dock so we can explore the National Park by bike. Tonight we dress a little fancy for the captain’s dinner and enjoy a few drinks and games onboard. (B, L, D)

Day 4

Discover world-famous Dubrovnik As we sleep our boat will cruise south to the famous fortress city of Dubrovnik. Poised gracefully on Croatia’s coast, Dubrovnik is so much more than Game of Thrones hotspots! To immerse ourselves in the magnificent Old Town we’ll head off on a guided walking tour, then check out the view via kayak for a must-sea perspective. Once the sun sets we’ll dine at a local restaurant, then go out to see what Dubrovnik’s world-class clubs have to offer. Anyone up to party in a castle? (B, L)

Day 5

Sail to Trstenik Drifting off from Dubrovnik, we’ll sail past olive trees and vineyards as we find a bluer-than-blue spot to anchor. Spend the entire day horizontal or practice your belly flops, it’s completely up to you! Later we’ll dock in the quiet fishing village of Trstenik to explore the unspoilt streets, taking in the most authentic side of Croatia. (B, L)

Day 6

Explore the Venetian town of Korcula After another morning of sailing in paradise today we dock in Korcula, one of Croatia’s most picturesque towns. Covered in marble and built around a magnificent 15th Century Cathedral, Korcula is Dubrovnik, but smaller and without the crowds! After showing you the sights, the summer afternoon is yours to wander the Venetian Old Town. Foodies can hit up the restaurants on the edge of town, and if you’re after a sunset cocktail, we know where to take you. (B, L)

Day 7

Get a taste of the high life Hvar You know the routine by now - swim, sunbathe and snorkel to your heart’s content, then this afternoon we’re sailing to the ritzy hub of Hvar. Playground of some familiar famous faces, this is where super-yachts meet Renaissance history. Climbing above terracotta rooftops, we’ll walk up to the Spanish Fortress for incredible views in every direction before heading to a beach club. Sun setting, music in the air, by now we’re fully acquainted with the Croatian lifestyle. There’s plenty of bars and clubs open ‘til early morning, so if you’re up to a big night, Hvar is the one. (B, L)

Day 8

Sail to Split via Bol It’s our last day of sailing, but there’s plenty more exploring on dry land to come! En route to Split we’ll anchor at Bol to visit Croatia’s most famous beach, Zlatni Rat, a beautiful stretch of white pebbles that tapers into the sea. Sailing back into Split, we’ll enjoy incredible views of the Riviera. Whether you want to wander down the Riva, grab a souvenir from the markets, or head to the beach for more fun in the sun, the rest of the day is yours. (B, L)

Day 9

Visit Krka National Park & Waterfalls After a final breakfast on our boat, we’ll say goodbye to the pirate life and travel to the epic Krka Waterfalls. Chasing these cascades is the perfect way to cool off in the summer heat, and the ultimate way to wrap up our Croatian adventure. Tonight in Split, we’ll give our Mediterranean fantasies one last hurrah with a farewell dinner and drinks, toasting to the amazing time we’ve spent together. (B, D)

Day 10

Checkout Your Croatian sailing adventure must come to an end, but with a topped-up tan and a bunch of lifelong friends, there are worse ways to finish a trip! Those going home can make their way to Split airport or keep living the dream and travel on in Europe. Your group leader will be there for support every step of the way.

Why should I book now?

Covid-19 threw us a curve ball and pretty much halted all travel. This means that we have a backlog of travellers, just like you, who are desperate to get out and explore the world! Global Work & Travel works on a first-in-best-dressed basis. Booking earlier ensures that you don’t miss out on the best intake, season, placements and more! We recommend our travellers take 6-12 months to plan their trip for a reason - to make sure you’ve got everything organised perfectly, stress-free.

Why not give yourself something to look forward to by booking that trip!

Can I travel with a friend?

Yes you can! Simply tell your Trip Coordinator after booking that your friend is also going and they can link your profiles. For most of our trips we should be able to have you and your friends placed together or nearby. Meaning that you can live, work, play & travel together!

But wait there's more! Not only can you travel the world with your besties at your side, you can also earn some extra cash towards your own trip just by referring your friends to Global Work & Travel. You can learn more about the great referral rewards program inside your gWorld account once you join.

And for those who decide to go-it-solo, we’ve made it easier to meet other Global Travellers in the same region as you. Just like any other social platform, you’ll be able to interact, share, chat and meet with some really cool people who are doing trips just like you!

What happens if COVID affects my trip?

If you have to make any changes to your departure date, you’re protected with our Lifetime Deposit Guarantee and our Ultimate Corona Booking Flexibility. With this, we will change your trip dates for free. If this doesn’t fit around you and you can’t go on your trip anymore, we will give you a 100% refund in the form of a Trip Credit with us (See terms). If you’re unable to use it, you can also transfer that credit to someone else for them to put towards any trip too.

If you’re affected by Covid-19 while you’re overseas, you will have all the support you need from our team or partners in-country as well as have access to our 24/7 Global Emergency Line. We recommend travellers purchase Global Travel Cover travel insurance that provides Covid-19 medical protection too.

Do I need to be vaccinated to book?

As border restrictions for countries begin to ease, being fully vaccinated will maximise the number of locations you can visit. So while you are not legally required to be vaccinated, and it’s also not a requirement to travel with us, it will limit some of the countries that you can visit and may make it harder to travel through over the next 12-18 months. We highly recommend our travellers look at the current travel restrictions of their destination, speak with a medical professional or get in touch with our team for travel advice.

What happens if I want to cancel my trip?

Our Ultimate Corona Booking Flexibility means you can change your trip’s start date up to 84* days before departure without incurring any charges when you rebook it for any time (or even any other trip) in the next 2 years from your original start date.

In the event that you want to cancel your booking altogether, if you give us over 84* days notice you can do so with only a 50% cancellation fee. Your refund of the balance will come in the form of a Store Credit which you can put towards booking absolutely anything travel related with your Travel Concierge within the next 2 years!

*Some select trips excluded, including Teach (Spain, Italy & Czech Republic) and USA (Summer Camp, Working Holiday and Hotel Professional), and others as listed in Booking Conditions.
