Trip Overview

Gay Sail Croatia, also known as the Pink Armada, is a gay sailing holiday set in the liveliest part of the Adriatic. From July 1st through August 5th embark from the buzzing city of Split and set out to explore the stunning islands of Hvar, Brač and Vis. Imagine this as a whole week of island hopping for guys like yourself, looking to have a great time discovering picturesque Mediterranean ports and rocking the islands’ party scenes. The Pink Armada is the only gay flotilla in Croatia.  

 

The moment when the boats set sail is the moment you will learn to love. You’re going to sail to pristine beaches, drop anchor at hidden bays and island hop from one sun-kissed island to the other. You’ll join forces with your crew mates and maneuver the yachts as you glide through the cleanest sea in Europe and discover the charming scenery of a country with 1000 islands.

You’ll be chilling on the deck with your crew mates, sipping afternoon drinks as you revel at the blend of old and new, natural and man-made, and perhaps even role play the Romans, inspired by the ancient ruins in Croatia’s port towns. The atmosphere on board with guys from all over the world is a perfect way to meet new people and have a dynamic, culture and party rich holiday that fills you with good vibes for months to come.  

No sailing experience is needed, however, if you’re keen to, Pink Armada skippers will happily show you the ropes around the boats and teach you a few sailor tricks. Our yacht weeks run from Saturday to Saturday starting in July and there are six sailing weeks you can choose from. You have a choice of booking entire yachts if you’re coming as a group of friends or booking a cabin if you’re traveling with a friend. With Gay Sail Croatia, you can also curate your own sailing trip during the offseason, via charter that gives you an option to discover other exciting ports such as Dubrovnik, Kornati, Zadar. Let the games begin!
