Bucket List Highlights

  • sunken_city_of_kekova

    Visit the sunken city of Kekova in Turkey

    On the 'Turkish Summer Sailing'

    Earthquakes shook this city nearly 2000 years ago, leaving some pretty ruins poking from the blue waters. Wave a flipper to the turtles that call the ruins home and cruise on to Simena Castle where you can storm up the cobblestones for an amazing view of the bay.

  • sail_croatias_scenic_coastline

    Sail Croatia’s scenic coastline

    On the 'Croatian Riviera'

    Checking off the likes of Split, Hvar and Dubrovnik, you can be sure our Sailing trips through Croatia pass by some ah-mazing scenery. The only snag is that once you’ve seen it, you’ll never want to leave. 

  • kayaking_in_dubrovnik

    Go sea kayaking in Dubrovnik

    On the 'Dubrovnik Dreams'

    The best way to see Dubrovnik’s historic city walls? Why, from the sea, of course! Grab a paddle and take to the water for a spot of kayaking on some of our Croatia Sailing trips. Picturing those clear waters, rocky shores and beach caves yet?

FAQs

How much luggage can I bring?

Each person is allowed one item of standard size luggage, plus a day pack. 

The maximum weight of your main bag must not exceed 44lb/20kg – and the size for all bags must not exceed 70cm x 45cm x 25cm. Please keep in mind that there is limited space on the boat – so please pack light.

Can I start late or finish the trip early?

No worries. We don’t offer any compensation for hours/days missed, though. And bear in mind that you might miss out on some awesome activities! Please note that you will need to make your own way to/from where the boat is docked.

How much money should I bring with me?

It varies! Obvs, there are loads of great souvenirs to be bought and an awesome social scene to get involved in (if that’s your thing). Heaps of your meals are also included, so this really just leaves a few meals and your personal spending to budget for.  

Throughout the trip, your Rep will also let you know about optional activities that you can do – so keep this in mind when budgeting, too. Please refer to the 'Tipping' section in your trip notes.

What visas will I need?

Obtaining the correct visas for your trip is your own responsibility. Not having correct visas could mean you missing out on part (or all) of your trip. Please refer to the Visa Information section of this website (which should be used as a guide only), or ask your travel agent. You should also double check with the appropriate embassies before you depart, remembering that visa requirements can change at short notice.

Please note: For most countries where visas are required, it's NOT possible to obtain a visa while on the trip. Some visas take 3-4 weeks to obtain.

Do I need travel insurance?

Before your trip, we recommend taking out a comprehensive travel insurance policy that covers you for all medical expenses (including repatriation) and any expensive items you bring away with you such as laptops, tablets, smart phones and cameras. Check the policy wording and excess limits before you book, and make sure they're to your satisfaction. Travel insurance should be taken out at the time of booking in case unforeseen events lead you to cancel your trip.

For more information visit the Travel Insurance page of this website. Here you can find more tips about what to look for in a policy, and search for a policy from World Nomads.

How do Sailing trips work?

In Croatia, we use a fleet of Traditional Ensuite, Traditional Ensuite Plus and Premium ships during the summer, all of which have en-suite cabins. Ships range in size from 25 to 40 metres and can comfortably carry/sleep up to 36 people.

In Turkey we use Turkish gulets, which are traditional twin-mast wooden cruising vessels originating from the south west coast of Turkey. Gulets vary in length, height, depth and breadth, and it is believed that no two are identical. They range in size from 14 to 35 metres and can comfortably carry/sleep up to 16 people.

Though the boats are rigged for sailing, all possess diesel engines of varying horsepower. As such, this is not strictly a 'sailing' trip – but an awesome nautical adventure all the same!

The cabins can be either on deck or below deck and are generally small as there is limited space on the boat – so please pack light.

What do I need to bring with me?

Please refer to the suggested clothing list in your trip notes.

Don't forget your swimmers, camera, passport, visas and a positive attitude! If you suffer from any medical conditions, please bring extra supplies of medication as it could be difficult to find in Europe.

Is it a problem if I travel on my own?

Not at all – many of our passengers travel alone. Often, over 50% of our passengers start the trip solo (it's a great way to meet people). What's more, we don't charge compulsory single supplements – instead, we'll match you up with a roommate(s) of the same sex.

Can I drink the water on board the boat?

While tap water is fine to drink in Europe, we do advise that bottled water should be purchased in Greece and Turkey.

On Croatia Sailing trips, you will be provided with a reusable water bottle that can be filled up from water coolers 24/7!

On Turkey Sailing trips, bottled water will be provided.

What if I'm on a special diet?

Each boat has a local chef, who’ll serve up fresh local flavours each day. If you have any special dietary requirements (e.g. if you're vegetarian or vegan), your chef will make every endeavour to cater to your specific needs – as long as advise your travel agent (or the Topdeck reservations team) in advance.

Unfortunately, in some places in Europe it is not possible to obtain certain special foods, and we cannot guarantee the variety of foods that will be available when eating out. There are some diets we are unable to cater for (such as religious diets), so if you are unsure please call your travel agent (or the Topdeck reservations team) to check.

Please re-confirm any dietary requirements with your Rep at the start of your trip.
