Coffee, the fragrant dark liquid, is the lifeblood of Croatia where there is not just a café on every corner but entire streets lined with café bars. Croatia’s coffee culture is distinctive, with an eclectic mix of Italian, Turkish and Austro-Hungarian culture.

Sailing on a Sunsail food and wine flotilla along the Dalmatian Coast is the perfect way to discover the coffee cosmology.

Sunsail has a host of flotillas in Croatia with 2017 departures, including the Dalmatian food and wine flotilla.

Sailing in a flotilla means the company of other boats and a set itinerary with dining companions plus an experienced lead crew dedicated to putting you on a gourmet path of wine tasting, vineyard tours and exceptional meals.

The Dalmatian food and wine flotilla offers many tours that include fresh seafood, excellent local wines, underwater wine cellar, traditional Croatian peka, vineyards and charming fishing villages for $185 more than the standard flotilla price.


Sunsail’s base at marina Agana in Marina village is the first port of call on the Croatian food and wine adventure. Arrive early to explore the nearby UNESCO World Heritage towns of Trogir and Split. At marina Agana you’ll meet your new flotilla companions over dinner in the local konoba (restaurant).

Prices are based on a Sunsail 36i 3 cabin monohull for seven days and include a fully equipped cruising yacht for the duration of the holiday, supportive lead crew including skipper, host and technician, one tank of fuel, guaranteed mooring at each stopover, dinghy and outboard, all sailing, navigation and safety equipment on board, fully equipped galley/kitchen, all clean linen including bath and tea towels, snorkelling equipment, end cleaning, end of week regatta.

A great way to explore the delights to be found along the Dalmatian Coast.
