    olysail chartered in Dubrovnik in June 2008Review written on September 9, 2011 Great mix of scenery, history and culture

    The Dubrovnik area in general is amazing. As for the city, there's really nothing like it. The old town is easily accessible and a great place to explore. Once you've had your fill of the tourist scene and crowds though you can move on to the outlying islands for relaxing evenings moored in small villages and days filled with fun shore explorations or water activities.

    The sailing is relaxing, not challenging but we did have a few days of some fun reaching and the rest of the time was pleasant. The navigation is also very easy, everything being line-of-sight and well charted and marked. The weather in June is perfect, we enjoyed temps in the mid 80's every day and the water was plenty warm for swim stops.

    Probably the highlight for us was the profound historical and cultural significance of the region. At every stop we found interesting architecture, influences of the region's long, mixed cultural influences and items of historical significance that you really wouldn't find anywhere else. But outside of Dubrovnik, these areas were not overrun by tourists and did not have the feeling that they were anything but a part of normal life for the Croats.

    andyharnik chartered in Dubrovnik in June 2007Review written on April 19, 2009 Dubrovnik

    Sail right into the old city, jump out and your literally in the heart of the city. The place is so beautiful and small. There is so much to do in the old city I never really made it beyond the walls into the new neighborhoods. There are lots of shops, restaurants, ice cream parlors, museums, and ancient churches. There is even an open air movie theater that projects on a white wall across the narrow streets. Neighbors can be seen hanging laundry out of their window while watching. Eating out inside the old city isn't going to be a mind blowing meal. Almost all restaurants serve the exact same meal. One big highlight is going to the hole in the wall bar. It can be hard to find with out asking for help but its literally a whole in the old city's walls and you walk through it and there's a tiny bar serving alcohol and lots of out door seating. Make sure you make it there for the sunset. Its totally amazing. Other highlights - Day walk up the mountain that overlooks the city, Ferry over to the nearby island where there is an ancient monastery and great swimming where you can jump off huge cliffs right into the Mediterranean, Beach near the docks, clubs near both entrances to the old city can get going on summer weekends.



    If you want a quiet time there make sure you go during the week. Cruse lines can dump thousands of people into the city on weekends.
