When to go small ship cruising in Croatia
Vis regatta in early May is a very local event with Croatian skippers at the helm. It not only includes sailing, but also concerts, local food and an environmental day. We love it.
The best time to go on a Croatia cruising vacation is when the skipper is ready to set sail, and this is generally between April to October. Conditions are calmer and the islands are starting to open for business. It is also when the water is starting to warm up, because with all that island hopping, you won’t be able to resist taking dips here and there. By taking a small ship cruise during peak summer months, you’re also avoiding all the queues for the island ferries by just hopping on your own vessel and going.

Powell Ettinger, director of our leading Croatia specialists The Small Cruise Ship Collection, shares his top tips: “The current season is April or May to October. It is very unlikely to extend. The busiest seasons tend to be June and September, as the sort of client these cruises appeal to likes to avoid the heat and the perceived crowds and families in July and August.”
