Yachting in the Adriatic
Croatia has more than 50 marinas, and a majority of them have technical services, cranes and gas stations, as well as retail and hospitality facilities. Marinas in Croatia also regularly organise sailing courses, so you can learn how to sail. If you’re a seasoned sailor, and you’re arriving to Croatia with your own vessel, make sure to plan out your route beforehand and reserve your spot in marinas you plan on visiting.
If you don’t own a yacht or a sailboat, you can rent one in larger Croatian marinas. In order to rent a vessel, you have to obtain a skipper’s certification (you can take the test at all port authorities) and have a VHF station. You’ll also have to fill out the necessary forms and obtain signatures from all crew members. Keep in mind that each change of crew during the voyage must be reported to port authorities.
Croatian marinas offer its guests a wide variety of yachting and sailing activities. You can choose anything from sailing tours, day trips, island hopping tours, nautical rallies, convoys, races and team-buildings. There are also additional supporting activities you can try, such as motor boating, water-skiing, speed boating, windsurfing, jet skiing and a lot more.
