The only thing better than a yacht charter with Sunsail, is a charter as part of one of Sunsail’s food & wine flotillas!
|If tasting traditional culinary delights and sampling local wines is your kind of sailing holiday, then it’s time to pack a bag and head for Croatia or Italy with Sunsail’s top four food and wine flotillas.|
Dubrovnik Food and Wine Flotilla
On this food and wine flotilla, you’ll sample the very best vine-fresh olives, figs, grapes and almonds. Leave Dubrovnik’s stunning terracotta-coloured Old Town behind as you cruise toward the lush southern Croatian island of Šipan.

Scuba dive by day, drink the famous Plavac Mali red in Trstenik, by night. Continue sailing toward the small fishing village of Lumbarda, Korčula, for scenic mountains, hidden beaches and a glass (or three) of the region’s dry, aromatic Grk Bijeli white wine.
