Project Description

More about Dubrovnik

This pearl of the Adriatic coast, Unesco World Heritage Site, should be on your ”bucket list”. One of the last remaining walled towns and its many sights is one of the top attractions in Croatia or better say Adriatic. For centuries Dubrovnik was an independent republic with its own laws and currency.

In the summertime, especially on Saturdays, it gets super crowded by tourists from big cruising ships, so we recommend you to visit it early in the morning to avoid the major crowds and enjoy the sights and sounds of old town waking up.

You can moor your boat in ACI marina Dubrovnik, which is a few minutes away from old town.
This city is also known as King’s Landing in the hugely popular Game of Thrones TV series.

Spend a day of your Sailing Holidays in Dubrovnik

Marina ACI Dubrovnik

One way route from Split to Dubrovnik is also one of our recommended, therefore you can see the most of Croatian most visited destinations in one week. We say, if you are not a first-time sailor, take advantage of this route and spend 9 days exploring Croatian coast to the fullest (7 days with us, 2 days in a hotel of your choice).

After docking in ACI marina, call a taxi or UBER (cheaper option) and ask them to take you to the old town. In a high season, also because of huge cruise ships at weekends, this place is really crowdy so we recommend to go to your hotel first and then back to the city. Exploring this magnificent old town will take you two days so do not hesitate to take your time.

There is a Dubrovnik’s airport 20km out of a city, which is also connected to other destinations in Mediterennean but for sure you can fly back to Zagreb international airport. Other options to go back to Split are catamaran ferry (it takes about 4h) or bus (not recommended in high season).
