Get­ting there:

No air­lines fly di­rectly to Croa­tia from New Zealand. Lufthansa, Swiss Air and Aus­trian Air­lines all fly to both Split and Dubrovnik (via European cen­tres) and con­nect with Air New Zealand and other air­lines in Asia or the United States. New Zealand cit­i­zens do not need a tourist visa for stays of up to 90 days.

Stay­ing there:

Medsailors of­fers two routes in Croa­tia – the Dis­cov­ery route (Split Return) and the Voy­ager route (Split-Dubrovnik or vice versa). The cost varies from £487 to £659 ($841-$1138) de­pend­ing on the time of year and the qual­ity of yacht – premier or premier plus. A new cata­ma­ran op­tion is also available from be­tween £600 and £738. All pas­sen­gers must pay an ad­di­tional £65 in lo­cal taxes on ar­rival.

Croa­tia is the most ex­pen­sive coun­try in the Balkans, but still rea­son­able by European stan­dards. Medsailors rec­om­mends a bud­get of about £25-£30 a day to cover din­ner, drinks and ad­di­tional costs. Break­fast and lunch is in­cluded in the cost of the tour. You are free to bring snacks and drinks (in­clud­ing al­co­hol) on board.
