Croatia legalized homosexuality in 1977.

Finally, while sharing a double hotel room in larger cities won't ruffle feathers, it may cause a stir in small cities.

Croatia is a beautiful and vibrant country that has stoically overcome war and adapted quite well to a massive influx of tourists. The food was amazing. Every meal used fresh produce that was locally sourced and organic. My favorite meals were peppered with fresh herbs and Istrian truffles. Each new port city I visited had its own unique energy, and walking the narrow streets of these cities was both haunting and fascinating. I really enjoyed my free time swimming off the yacht, taking in the beauty of the Croatian coastline, and tasting the local cuisine. However, what made this trip even more memorable was all of the new friendships I made along the way

Croatia: Gay Dalmatia Cruise 2019

This was my first time traveling as part of an organized, large group and it exceeded my expectations. Croatia is an incredibly beautiful country, especially once you reach the Adriatic (Dalmatian) Coast. Arid mountains, clear azure waters, big sky, sheltered coves and historic towns and villages. The landscape, the architecture, the history and the people, all wonderful. The pure joy of that experience, including the endless laughter shared among old friends and new, I will cherish forever. Kudos to Rob, OUT Adventures and our Croatian expert guide Livio. They were truly committed to ensuring that each and every person had the very best experience possible. Traveling by sea is most definitely the way to see Croatia. And I look forward to my next trip with OUT Adventures.

What a great way to see you Croatia, meet new friends and all done with style & class!! It was one of my most memorable vacations ever. My favorite part of the trip; waking up each morning to an up front and close view of the Croatian coast line. The small towns/ villages, the mountains and the crystal clear Adriatic were simply amazing; every morning was more spectacular than the last. The city tours in the afternoons were always well organized and full of local history facts. A very big thanks to Rob and Out Adventures for organizing this truly awesome trip!! Great memories and met some really awesome guys. I can't wait for my next Out Adventure!!

From initial contact to the follow up after returning from the trip, OUT Adventures delivered exceptional customer service and an overall stellar experience. Everyone they contract with also delivered as well, especially our fabulous tour guide, Livio, and the Katarina Line crew. Croatia is a stunningly beautiful country, free of over development despite being a major tourist destination. All of the places we stopped at had similar characteristics but their own distinct personality. Dubrovnik was the highlight for me, a true gem of a city. Another highlight was getting to know my fellow travelers. Was a little nervous going in as a single person not knowing anyone beforehand, but was really happy to meet such a diverse mix of friendly guys. Fantastic trip and would highly recommend.

Seeing Croatia with OUT Adventures was awesome. A very diverse group of guys made every day interesting with different perspectives and insights. The scenery was amazing, the tour itinerary was perfect (not too much, not too little), and we hit all the major places to see along the Dalmatian Coast. Croatia is at a perfect point - great new infrastructure, growing appreciation of tourism service, wonderful history, and beautiful scenery. This was our 2nd trip and definitely one of many to come.
