It was simply the best!
We had a great week on the boat. The Catamaram was new as it was showed in the picture, very confortable and well organized. The Skipper Andy was very professional, polite and an easy person to get a long during the week. We all felt very safe and protected by Andy´s guidance. 5 stars to him! The hostess Gabriela was also a 5 star professional. She was worried about our expectaions and cooked very nice dishes for our light lunches. She was also polite and organized. The itinarary was planned and sugested by the skipper and he was very flexible to our needs. This was also very good. I would certain recomend Danielis Yachting to our friends in Brazil.

It was an amazing sailing week with our catamaran. The weather was excellent an we visited nice places in croatia. The kids loved the sailing trip and had a lot of action and fun.
We really enjoyed the bay of Stari Trogir. We are never to old for fun. Jumping from 5 years to 50 years.

A great experience and a wonderful relaxing week sailing north from Trogir
Our family og 8, including 4 teens, booked the catamaran just weeks before our trip with the help of our «old» skipper Antisa from two years ago. The process of booking the cat was made quick and easy by Tea at Danielis. Skipper Vlaho (recommended by our skipper from last time) contacted us and assisted with late check in due to a late flight upon our arrival. After a quick stop by the charter office the next day we went north from Trogir. Skipper Vlaho picked up on all our requests and wishes and planned a nice route. We stayed at small secluded bays for swimming and lunch every day, and ate at really nice restaurants at night. Exactly what we wanted. Vlaho helped make our week on the catamaran go perfect in every way and was pleasant company for both adults and teens. I’m sure we will return to Croatia sailing some other time.

Excellent weather, though not much wind for sailing. Some anchorages were crowded (specifically due to Cruise Week boats) and we had to find alternates. It would have been helpful to have walked through our sail itinerary plan with the staff and have them give guidance in terms of best anchorage options - some local knowledge would have helped.
Stopped at multiple islands on our way to Dubrovnik - each unique and wonderful. Boat was great overall. The motor on the dinghy was a little under-powered. And a BBQ on board would have been nice. The water alarm kept going off and it wasn't possible to permanently turn off the alarm (confirmed with your technical service person). The sensor showed random readings, and we didn't run out of water (so the alarm was completely unhelpful). At night we had to shut off the service battery to get the alarm to stop so people could sleep, which was not ideal since I don't like to have the anchor light turned off.

We loved our three days on the Gray Goose! Perfect in every way. Maggie was amazing- a wonderful cook, tour guide and fun to be with. Her boat had everything we could want and more. A perfect way to see the area without the crowds.

We had an excellent trip, and the skipper was really helpful and engaged with us every step of the way. We were a large group in two boats and they really made sure that we enjoyed every minute of it.

Highly recommend this company! Fast and friendly reply, all booked and sorted as agreed. Really easy to book the sailing holiday in Croatia and we will definitely use them again in the future.
Loved sailing in Croatia, pretty places we visited and our beautiful boat. Boat life is just so amazing! Thanks Danielis Yachting for organizing our trip! Definitely coming back.

This far exceeding our expectations of what a catamaran sailing trip would be like. We had no idea what to expect and we were so happy with the experience. We are dreaming about doing it again, hopefully soon!
We had the most wonderful week sailing on the catamaran which we owe mostly to the amazing skipper Duje and hostess Marija. Duje is the most mature 25 year old I've ever met. He was so responsible and professional. He will have an incredible career that is for sure, you are lucky to have him as a skipper. Marija is equally amazing. Her cooking skills are incredible and we ate way too much! Now that we are home, we have to diet to lose all the weight but it was worth it. We could not have asked for a better hostess. The boat was good but next time we will be a Lagoon 45 for more room. I booked a catamaran with A/C but I was not aware that this catamaran only has A/C in the main galley/dining area. The cabins below do not have A/C. That was a disappointment. It would have been nice to have that information. Also, this particular boat was not very well stocked - no wine glasses or bowls. We had to eat cereal in coffee mugs. Not the worst thing ever but not the greatest. The pillows were horrible! Sorry, but they were just flat. We had to sleep with our clothes rolled up under the pillow to get any rest. We got used to it but it took a few nights. It's a bit like camping but after a few nights, we were sleeping very well. Other than the inadequacies of the boat, the entire week was just the best week ever. Duje led us to the best mooring spots and towns. He made reservations for us for dinner and wine tasting. We could not have asked for a better vacation. We hope to return and when we do, we will be requesting Duje and Marija.

We had to stand waiting in 35 degrees heat with no shade waiting 3 hours for the boat to get ready. As a consequence we missed out on sailing the first day.

Very, Very Good. A little better coordination between the booking agent and the charter boat company would have made it perfect.

Great week superb weather
This yacht clearly has historic electrical problems which necessitated a visit from Lovre, who isolated the immediate issue. Your response was very good and Lovre was excellent. My wife complained that the Wi fi didn’t work, also other minor faults such as missing life lines. The major problem was with the engine cowling catches which didn’t hold their position this was only discovered when my wife when coming on deck ,came away hitting her hard on her chest now suffering with badly bruised ribs. She is still suffering and obviously spoilt an otherwise good week.

We had an amazing trip. We found the Croatian people to be extremely friendly and open and great to talk to. We highly recommend Danielis for a great yachting experience, and if you can get Domagoj as your skipper, even better.
What an amazing trip. From the moment we arrived in Split, at the Marina Kastela, and met Domagoj Skracic (our skipper for the week), the experience was nothing short of fantastic. A large supermarket close by to the marina enabled us to stock up on food and essentials for the trip. Domagoj even came with us and gave us advice on quantities. Our boat was more than spacious for the four of us, and it was spotlessly clean when we checked in. Even though it was only the first week of June, we had nice warm weather. Domagoj was a superb skipper. His sailing skills were superb, and his knowledge of the islands, and where to go when the winds blew in one direction or another, was second to none. He truly became one of the family for the week. We sailed first to Viz, stopping in to see the famous Blue Cave on Bisovo, and sampled the traditional "peka" meal one evening. Then it was off to Palmizana and Hvar, then on to Stari Grad. All great experiences. One of the highlights of the trip was hiking into the mountains to visit the Pustina Blaca monastery, established in 1551 and now a World Heritage site, on the island of Braca. A hidden jewel, Domagoj had taken his girlfriend there a year go and liked it so much he takes his clients there. A real gem! Then it was on to Milna and finally back to Marina Castela in Split, said our sad goodbyes to Domagoj, and then roamed the beautiful old towns of Split and Trogir on our last day. A fantastic trip, and such good memories.

generally the trip was fine, because wind and good weather.
generally the trip was fine, because wind and good weather. The boat was in a bad condition and the boat was not the same as our first Order confirmations. (we got B´Bavaria Cruise instead of ferretti). -the Sail was just 70% useable -the boat was dirty when we git it -3 toilet windows from the 4 toiletts were leaky so the rain come inside and the toilets get wet - one toilette is constantly wet on the floor. Sometimes 2 cm water -one right side the electrical sockets are not working -Shower outside is only sometimes -Service in the office was ok, but a transfer to the Airport should be included like with other companies.

The initial experience at the marina was not good. 1/The office was not where the instructions said it would be. We were had to shlep the luggage a long way looking for it. 2/ We were given a different boat ( not Prestige we booked) 3/ The boat was not cleaned properly 4/ The manager declared that they had no WiFi but then produced one when I refused to leave without it. Once out of the marina everything went fine. The skipper was great.

Grande competenza molto veloci nel check-in e nel check-out barca in ottime condizioni
Anche se abbiamo avuto una settimana con pioggia e temperature basse abbiamo trascorso dei giorni meravigliosi. Ci siamo fermati a ziriè, Primosten e sul Lago jezero.

Another life changing holiday - thank you Danielis & Marko!
This was my second time with Danielis and they continue to impress. Tea in particular, extremely helpful, professional and offered great advice throughout - thank you. We decided on another catamaran this time sailing around the south / Dubrovnik islands. Our catamaran was as described, in great condition even though the rain on our first day took the shine away a little. Our amazing skipper, Marko Gómez Karadza is a credit to Danielis and the ocean itself! This was our second time sailing with Marko, his knowledge, island contacts, stories and the attention he gives to each member of the crew is inspiring. Thanks to Marko we are now competent crew - thank you Marko, we will see you again soon!

Sea side was exactly the right boat in terms of layout, size and performance. Since it was on only its second charter there were a few equipment issues which with minor adjustment would be corrected, but these didn't diminish our experience. Our skipper Martin was everything we could have dreamed of; sail master, guide, concierge, cook and friend. Pitter and Danielis were great as well.
We chose the dates of our charter to avoid the high season and heat of summer but we encountered rain and chilly temperatures which somewhat limited our sailing time. However, what time we had was exactly what we expected. The rain also limited our exploring but to a lesser extent. Martin took us to the expected islands as well as a couple of extras. At each stop Martin briefed us on the history, geography and current affairs of Croatia and its neighbors. His pride in his country is obvious.
