Also, there are many historic buildings that are on the islands off the coast, and these historic buildings show tourists the local history of the country of Croatia. Lastly, fishing is always a big sport when it comes to sea-faring countries, and Croatia offers a number of fishing spots off its coast that supports a variety of fish in them.

The contributions:

For tourists who are searching for a place for a vacation that offers sailing and sightseeing tours, Croatia would be the ideal place to go. Sailing Croatia has a lot to offer to its tourism industry whether it’s sailing to unpopulated islands, fishing on the Adriatic Sea, or sightseeing while sailing from island to island.

What to expect:

Some charters provide a mini-cruise that sails from one island to another off the Croatian coast, and those who take this charter will spend the night on sea or on exotic islands. There are also one day charters, where tourists will be able to see as many locations as they can before they return for the night. Whether it’s a one day or an overnight charter, they can both be guided or rented.  The tourists will either have a guide who knows the area and how to sail or they can rent the boat and go alone. If the tourists have no experience in sailing it is best to go on guided tours, but, if they have sailing experience, they have more freedom to go where they want.
