They're there to tell you stories, make everything easy and help you get the most out of your time on the Adriatic.
The Swim Stops
There are swim stops everyday in a small covers and secluded bays, the perfect way to cool down from the heat.
Raves in caves, bars lit on fire, full moon parties, and a nightclub in a fortress. Croatian nightlife at its best!
From mussels in wine sauce to grilled squid and smoked prsut, our cooks will ensure your appetite for local delicacies is satisfied.
A TYPICAL DAY
The boat departs early in the morning with a freshly prepared breakfast on the table. Spend the morning kicking back on deck with your trip mates, the perfect way to start another day in paradise. Late morning we’ll cruise in to a secluded cove for a refreshing dip in the crystal clear turquoise waters the Adriatic is famous for.
Back on board, it’s time to crank up the tunes as we enjoy a delicious freshly cooked three course lunch! Get your land legs back as your guide takes you on a little orientation walk of the island before free time to discover the sites, wander the sun dappled streets, have a swim, check out the water sports or explore the shops.
Time to head in to the balmy summer night for an optional group dinner in town before a night checking out the bars, getting to know the locals and dancing the night away with a cocktail or three at one of the many awesome island clubs – bliss!
Meet the Fleet
Our fleet is our strength. We have great boats for all budgets. Energetic crews, clean cabins, great cooks, plenty of deck space, and captains who understand your needs. Our fleet has been with us now for years and we've grown together, meaning you get the best experience possible on the Adriatic.
The originals to pioneer the Dalmatian coast, these beautifully preserved classic boats are full of character offering great deck space, well laid out cabins and shared bathrooms. They are skippered by the new generation of captain, so their youthful energy and lively attitude will ensure you have a great week's sail.
These boats have been sailing with us for seasons. They offer great big decks to dance and sunbathe on and a large galley to enjoy the seafood and ensuited cabins, allowing for privacy. The Classic Ensuites are slightly larger than their Classic Standard counterparts and could be described as Dalmatia's party boats. They are skippered by awesome characters, who will ensure your week's sail is top notch.
These modern steel hulled giants offer large en suite cabins, flat screen entertainment systems, huge deck space and large galleys. They represent the new Croatian cruising experience with captains and crews who have grown with us over the years; you'll never want to get off them.
The boats all have a Croatian crew along with your Busabout Guide. The Captains are usually old hearty sea dogs that speak very little English, the deck hands usually young English speaking Croats on their University holidays and of course your English speaking Busabout Guide too to make sure you have the time of your life on-board.
The ships hold between 26 and 36 passengers, all cabins are twin-share, some ensuite, some not, some below deck (close those windows when we're sailing!), some above, with plenty of room up top for sunbathing & an onboard bar!
