Chartering in Croatia should include the full coastline from Dubrovnik to Venice on a private yacht charter through the myriad of lovely islands and beautiful coastline of this historic land coveted from ancient times to now for the beautiful crystal clear waters filled with fish and shellfish and lovely fertile soil. The mainland and islands of Croatia were where the Greeks and Romans went to vacation and retire to relax surrounded by the extraordinary beauty.  Today cruise in the wake of these ancient civilizations and enjoy all that they once did from fresh picked oysters and mussels to beautiful boutique wines, fresh fish, and lovely vine ripened fruits and vegetables.  Swim in the blue green waters and enjoy sea kayaking and other water sports in the many anchorages.  At the end of your charter glide into Venice just like all seafarers once did; into the Grand Canal and up to St. Marks Square, as a very fitting end to your charter and chartering in Croatia.
