If you sat there unsure about what Sail week to book and which one will be best for you, you're in the right place ;-)

Party vs. Adventure SailWeek

In this blog, we are going to explain the five main things that are different between these two most popular SailWeek routes which are Party route and Adventure route.

1. Route Vibes - The people

Party SailWeek & Ultra SailWeek Croatia

It does what it says on the tin. Party SailWeek Croatia and Ultra SailWeek Croatia are created for the younger desirous crowd who love to spend their week partying along the Dalmatian islands, while seeing what the islands have to offer.

  • Younger crowd
  • Day & Night parties
  • Best clubs
  • Circle raft party

Adventure SailWeek Croatia & SailWeek Greece

On the other hand, we've got our more Mid pace routes which are Adventure SailWeek Croatia and SailWeek Greece.

Those two are made for people who love to spend their holidays:

  • More sailing
  • Lots of extra activities
  • Nature
  • Wine tastings and remarkable local cuisine

This does not mean no partying involved as there are local bars on each island to party but it is better suited for those who also want to spend their days exploring.

2. Itinerary - Highlights

Party SailWeek Croatia

Party SailWeek starts from Split, the place where it all began.
It goes around middle Dalmatian islands and then ends back in Split.

You will visit:

Adventure SailWeek Croatia

Adventure SailWeek is a two way route where you can choose your starting point whether that's going to be Split or Dubrovnik. Adventure SailWeek sails all along Dalmatian coast. Both routes are the same just in reverse order.

You will visit:

  • Split, 1700 year old capital of Dalmatia. With a Roman palace, amazing nightlife and some of the finest Croatian cuisine.

SailWeek Greece

You will visit:

Climb the hill top for a spectacular view over the port and along the stunning coastline. Take a donkey ride and enjoy the most beautiful sunset in Hydronetta bar. If it was good for Leonard Cohen it's good enough for you.
  • Dokos, A perfect day to relax, sunbathe, dive and paddle board. Spend your night dancing and socialising under the stars while your skipper prepares special skipper's beach bbq. Time to bring out the guitar if you are brave enough.
