Glide through the crystal clear waters of the Adriatic on board an exclusively chartered yacht. Relax on deck with a cool drink and when the ship drops anchor take a dip in a deserted little bay. 

Our yachts, carrying up to just 40 passengers, cruise from Dubrovnik or Split with a full programme of fascinating shore excursions is included. We also visit picturesque ports and islands which are less accessible to larger vessels allowing you to experience a quieter but equally beautiful side of the Dalmatian Coast.

Lovely in equal measure are the enchanting islands of the Ionian Sea. Our exclusively chartered wooden schooners, carrying a maximum of 16 guests, will take you to the pretty harbours of Kefalonia and the enchanting coves and bays of Lefkas. Our schooner cruises also visit lesser known islands where time seems, quite literally, to have stood still.

Idyllic harbours, atmospheric tavernas and hidden white beaches lapped by an azure blue sea - this is the Greece that we all dream of.

Or for a truly unique and unforgettable holiday perhaps consider a relaxing cruise around the glorious atolls and coral reefs of the Maldives.

The perfect balance

Our thoughtfully planned itineraries allow plenty of time at sea, so you can fully experience the unique delights a sailing holiday can offer, with frequent opportunities to swim in idyllic locations, making for a very special and memorable cruise.
Picture a typical day on board: spend the morning sailing the turquoise waters of the Adriatic, taking in magnificent coastal vistas and the invigorating breeze. You have the opportunity to cool off with a swim off the back of the ship – as if it were your own! Relax back on board as your crew serve a delicious lunch in the restaurant, before we moor in our next port of call. Join our included excursions ashore, with free time after to explore. Enjoy dinner independently in a cosy restaurant and sample the local fare before returning for your favourite nightcap on the ship’s terrace.

Expert-led excursions

Riviera Travel yacht cruises offer the opportunity to gain tremendous insight into the places we visit, so each excursion becomes an enriching journey of discovery and every destination remains inscribed in your memory.
Our knowledgeable and engaging guides will unearth local history and unravel a fascinating tapestry of culture, architecture, art and much more. Trace the footsteps of the ancient Greeks, discover the glorious past behind Roman ruins, and understand the story of Venetian influence in Istria and Dalmatia. Perhaps you’ll embrace your inner ornithologist upon sightings of some of Croatia’s numerous bird species gliding out over the Adriatic.
Every itinerary includes time at leisure, so there are plenty of opportunities for further exploration and immersion in local culture under your own steam. Should you require any assistance, an experienced Riviera Travel tour manager is always with you.
