The Sail and Bicycle Island-hopping Adventure


“Hi there,
I would like to say that the Sailandbicycle Croatia portion of my holiday was absolutely fantastic. I organised a group of 9 to atend and we all had a great time. We were on the Tarin boat and the crew were absolutely amazing and looked after us in every way possible.
Not a bad word to say about it and thank the Tarin crew immensely.”

“The week I spent sailing the Adriatic with Sail Croatia this summer was unforgettable – dropping anchor in aquamarine waters off remote islands, taking part in impromptu diving competitions from the top of the boat, stuffing myself silly on the enormous meals cooked fresh on board, dancing the night away at ‘cave bars’ and beach parties on the islands of Korcula and Hvar, and sleeping under the stars on the top deck, waking to the sun blazing an orange trail through a cloudless sky. It was such a chilled time, I think the toughest decision I had to make was which bikini to wear each day!” (read the whole story)

“We thank you as the great crew of Tarin for all your kindness, the superb handling of us… for spoiling us with best food. Thanks to you Cooky, with wonderful guitar music, thank you Magla, and with the warmest feeling to be welcome on wonderful ship Tarin – thanks to Captain Nevio”

“Dear sail and bicycle island-hopping,
I have to say that my trip was the best holiday i have ever had-I mean that 100%.
Whoever looks after your cabin and boat allocation did an amazing job as our boat was full of couples and people our age. We have made friends for life and have already had three friends from the boat come and visit.
I work in hospitality and the service and warm welcome we received from the crew of boat “Tarin” was exceptional and beyond what i ever excepted boarding this boat. Cookie is an amazing chef and fed us well, Marjan was great sailor-i feel asleep on the deck one of the mornings and he put a blanket over me while i slept so that i didn’t burn, Nevio was the best captain-he kept communication going trough ever stage and he was extremely professional and easy to talk to.His daughter Tarin was amazing,she was our waitress and she waited on as hand and food. There was one stage on the holiday where i was sunbathing after a great fees from lunch and Tarin delivering a glass of vine and i thought heaven!
You have a great team representing you in Croatia and i would highly recommend your company to anyone. I have already emailed the link to your site to about 5 people.
I will leave a good review on TripAdvisor as i feel that the bad review could do you damage and i would like a positive review to reflect our experience up there to encourage more people to enjoy this trip.
Thank you so much for all of your help an for providing us with the best holiday we have ever had.”

“Hi Sailandbicycle,
We had a fantastic time on Tarin. The crew of boat were simply wonderful and we couldn’t have asked for a better time! We had a lovely bunch of people on our boat, and there was a nice blend of couples and singles which meant everyone got along.
I will be recommending Sailandbicycle Croatia to all my friends!
Thank you”

“Dear Sailandbicycle,
We were on board the boat Tarin and I d like to say that everyone had a incredible time. The boat was clean and excellently laid out,particularly the spacious sun deck! The crew were wonderful! They were friendly, efficient and bent over backward to please as. The food on board was far better than I had anticipated as were the en suite cabins. I can t praise the boat or crew enough. I think the itinerary was excellent and wouldn’t change anything. I literally have nothing negative to say. I couldn’t have had a better holiday.
I hope to return to Croatia one day and I would highly recommend a holiday like this to any of my friends!
Thanks and kind regards”

“Dear Sailandbicycle, I know I speak for the rest of my party when I say what a fabulous week we all had on Sail and bicycle and this was solely down to the boat we were lucky enough to be placed on, Tarin, and its wonderful crew.
The route was fantastic but our crew made it all so wonderful. Kuki the chef did the cooking and again that was brilliant with fabulous selection, quality, quantity and a lot of fresh produce! I think this boat deserves special credit but I also belive this is a boat more suitable to the age groups of 30+. Once again thank you,but our main thanks are to Tarin.
Kind Regards”

“I just wanted to send a big thanks to the crew of Tarin. They made this trip extra special, always going out of the way to make everything perfect. Telling us all the little out of the way places to go out and to eat, and making life on the boat so perfect. What more could you want?”
Jason from Australia

“Trip was amazing! Honestly had the best week, couldn’t have asked for better weather! Seems the Tarin is the boat to be on! The facilities on boat were great, especially the upstairs sun beds – b l i s s!! All food was delicious, and a good mix made sure there was something for everyone. The staff were just gorgeous! They went out of their way to make sure everyone was well and enjoying the trip – I needed some medical help at one stage – nothing serious – but the crew were the first ones to take care of the situation. Much appreciated! The cruise was first class. I have spoken to many other people who have sailed with you an have all said the same – the cabins were cozy and comfortable and the boat itself in great order. I’m so impressed with the whole week and cant wait to do another one next holiday! Thanks a bundle and thanks to all the crew on board – Cookie, Baba, Admiral, Captain – such a great week wouldn’t have been possible without them.”
Nikola from Australia

“Dobar dan Nevio, just to say thank you from those crazy boys. Mr Bean, Austin powers, Bushy, Man with no name and Little punk. You are quite safe now…We are home in England we had a fantastic time, and your crew do you credit. Cookie is always joking and there to help and offer more food. Ana’s food is fabulous, she would put a top class restaurant to shame, (how does she cook up such great food in a ship’s gallery?) And of course yourself and Magla are always professional would like it, and who could forget your musical entertainment, the evenings were a riot! The whole atmosphere was more like a group of friends, than people you have only met a day or so before. I think we agree it was one of the best possibly, the best holiday we have ever had… Haven’t had so much fun since I was child, and probably that was because once we had arrived at Tarin, we had all of our needs taken care of, and didn’t have to organize anything else. You all did it for us, and superbly so I will say.”
