Bente Dorte is the only traditionally rigged sailing ship in Croatia offering sail training, hands on sailing using traditional methods, island charters and ethno-sailing. Bente Dorte has been in Croatia since 2008, and during the summer of 2009 we explored just about every island in the Croatian archipelago. We have discovered hide-away coves, wineries, mysterious prison islands, abandoned pirate fortresses and much more. We are ready to set off on many more journeys, meet many more people and to share the unique beauty of Croatia with new crews.
Everyone can sail aboard Bente Dorte.
On Bente Dorte, you are the crew, and on a traditionally rigged sailing ship it is all about teamwork! Each persons skills and interest are attended to, whether you are a total novice or a salty sea bear! There is something for all levels of experience, and we’ll help you design an itinerary to suit your particular needs.
