Sailing Trips with Topdeck
Spend more time in each region
With region-focused itineraries, our Sailing trips give you plenty of time to explore Croatia or Turkey in depth. Spend your days discovering local hangouts, veering off the beaten track and taking the time to do each stop your way – this is your trip, after all.
Stay in en-suite cabins
Croatia, Turkey… Whichever part of the sunny Med you decide to set sail in, you’ll get to bed down in a comfy twin or double cabin each night. And did we mention all our cabins come complete with en-suite facilities (perfect for rinsing off after all those swim stops)?
Soak up the sun/make a splash
Wake up. Sunbake. Swim. Repeat. Welcome to a new life, where lounging on deck and cooling off in the ocean are high on your list of priorities. Remember work? Uni? The daily commute? All those annoying little responsibilities? Nah, we didn’t think so.
Tuck into local home-cooked meals
All Topdeck Sailing trips come with heaps of included meals. You probs knew that already. BUT, just FYI, these meals aren’t your average meals. They’re SO much more. We’re talking loads of home-cooked local fare that’s so good it’ll haunt your dreams. We’re not even joking.
Get social with the group
With all that time spent eating, sun-lounging, sightseeing, exploring and generally embracing classic boat life with your fellow Topdeckers, one thing’s for sure – incredible new friendships WILL be yours. Ready to find your people? Welcome aboard.
Bucket List Highlights
Visit the sunken city of Kekova in TurkeyOn the 'Turkish Summer Sailing'
An earthquake shook Kekova nearly 2,000 years ago, leaving behind some aesthetically pleasing ruins that you can still see to this day. Wave a flipper to the turtles that call this sunken city home, then cruise on to Simena Castle (where you can wander up the cobblestones for an amazing view of the bay).
Sail Croatia’s scenic coastlineOn the 'Croatian Riviera'
Split, Hvar, Dubrovnik… with stops like this on the agenda, you know the scenery is gonna be unreal. From hidden coves, shimmering waters and golden beaches to ancient city walls, incredible national parks and quaint coastal towns, your eyes won’t know what hit ‘em.
Go sea kayaking in DubrovnikOn the 'Dubrovnik Dreams'
The best way to see those city walls you’ve heard about in Dubrovnik? From the ocean, 100%. Get a group together, grab a paddle and gear up for a bit of optional sea kayaking. Expect the following: heart-stealingly picturesque spots, some snorkelling time AND a hidden cave beach.
