Experience the Freedom of Sailing in Croatia

A Yacht Charter is the perfect option for families or small groups wanting the freedom to explore the Adriatic independently, and at their own pace.

Our yachts are based in ACI Marina, Split, offering an easy start and finish that brings you in and out of the heart of Split. Hiring your own sailing yacht provides you with a unique way to see Croatia, and similar to hiring a car, you create your own itinerary and stick to it as closely as you like. If you enjoy one destination, feel free to stay longer - it’s your trip so you decide!

Our experienced local skippers are available for hire with each yacht if you don't have a qualified crew member in your group.

Sailing Conditions

Dalmatia is a popular sailing destination thanks to its pristine natural beauty, ideal Mediterranean climate and variety of sailing conditions. Throughout the peak sailing period of April - October, Croatia is graced with plenty of sunny days and pleasant weather, with the Adriatic enjoying an average of 315 sunny days each year.

The best time to set sail is between April - June and September - October, when the sea is calm, the weather is mild and there are fewer crowds. Peak season, between July and August, is an ideal time for swimming, finding secluded bays and being amongst the nightlife and alfresco dining scene as the social season kicks into full swing.

Whilst our experienced Yacht Operations Team are available to support you throughout your charter, we recommend using a weather app, such as WindFinder, to plan your journey and observe any weather changes.

This star studded itinerary spends two days at each island, allowing you to discover the charm of each location on the island and really get to know your destination.

Split, Croatia
Check-in
Split
Summary

Upon arriving at Split Airport, your included Airport Transfer will transport you to ACI Marina, where your Private Yacht Tour will begin! If you arrive earlier than check in time, check out the beautiful Old Town of Split, located a short stroll away. Split is well known for its stunning Diocletian's Palace, a 4th Century structure created by the Roman emperor, Diocletian.

Once home to thousands, its sprawling remains include more than 200 buildings, cobbled stone streets and charming courtyards, cafes, galleries and cafes all waiting to be explored!

This is also a good time to purchase any food, toiletries, or other supplies you’ll need for the week. We would only recommend purchasing enough for the first day or two as there are plenty of stores at each destination to stock up on food throughout the week.

Supetar, Croatia
Day 1
Supetar
Summary

Depart on a short, yet impressive sail from Split to Supetar - the main town on Brac island. Located on the northern side of Brac and surrounded by thick pine forest, Supetar is a great introduction to the beautiful Dalmatian coastline, ensuring you make the most of your first night!

If Croatian cuisine is on your must-try list, then you’re in the perfect location, with plenty of local restaurants in town! Supetar has a population of just over 3,000 people, and is small enough that all sights can be reached by a leisurely walk.

The history of this island goes back as far as the Roman colonisation, which took place around 100 BC, meaning that many historical attractions on the island (including churches, quarries and museums) are all waiting to be explored.

Approximate Mooring Fees:
  • Mooring buoys: €30 - 40 *Cash only
  • Marinas: €40 - 130 *Cash & card available

*Catamaran mooring fees can be up to 1.5 x more than these estimated prices

Vis, Croatia
Day 2
Vis Town
Summary

A charming and elegant island, Vis is mostly known for its military background (it was a strategic military post in WWII), traditional way of life, and stunning natural phenomena; the Blue Caves. Vis was once known as the “Forbidden Island” and was off limits to foreigners until 1992. Today, the island is quickly growing into a vibrant tourist destination.

A benefit of the lack of tourism until 20 years ago is that a traditional way of life has been maintained, providing an insight into authentic Croatia, preserved buildings and a thriving fishing community. Renting a bike or scooter is a great way to get around Vis and really take in this scenic island streaked with vineyards, charming villages, and sun-soaked mountains.

Approximate Mooring Fees:
  • Mooring buoys: €30 - 40 *Cash only
  • Marinas: €40 - 130 *Cash & card available

Komiza, Croatia
Day 3
Komiza
Summary

Leave Vis Town behind and sail around to the charming village of Komiza, also on the island of Vis. Komiza is located on the southern edge of Vis island, set at the foot of a spectacular mountain range! The contrast of eclectic terracotta rooftops and the quaint harbour make for many gorgeous photos against the beautiful backdrop of the Adriatic Sea.

Komiza is the nearest town to the island of Bisevo, home to the spectacular natural phenomenon that is the Blue Caves. There’s no shortage of things to do if you would rather stay on dry land, including exploring dozens of military bunkers, bases, fortresses and museums. The cave offers rewarding views to those who make the climb.

Both Vis and Komiza/Blue Caves can be done in one day if you prefer to spend more time elsewhere on the islands (Hvar is a popular choice).

Summary

Situated in the pine-covered Vicja Luka valley, you’ll fall so in love with its peaceful, scenic surroundings and pristine turquoise water, that you’ll struggle to keep this one a secret. A town of only 70 inhabitants, Bobovisca is best enjoyed with good conversation and a glass of local wine in hand, as you listen to the lapping of waves and watch the sun set.

Hvar’s 2,000+ hours of sunshine each year, buzzing nightlife and spectacular fortress with breath-taking views (follow the footpath and take the climb - you will not be disappointed) make this a place you will never forget!

Hvar is home to some of Croatia’s best nightlife, and you’ll discover no end of bars and clubs that will keep you out into the early hours or the morning.

Say goodbye to Hvar island, as you set sail for your next destination! Along the way, we’ll stop near the beautiful Šćedro island, where a stunning bay awaits you for a perfect dip in the sea!

After our swim stop, we’ll continue onto Korcula. This destination is certainly something to get excited about, with a fishbone shaped Old Town, abundance of history, and a plethora of seaside cafes, restaurants and bars.

Often referred to as a ‘mini Dubrovnik’ the compact Old Town bears a striking resemblance to Dubrovnik, and is the perfect destination to get lost in its twisting alleyways and narrow streets. Make sure to sample a freshly caught seafood dinner, before taking your pick of ample bars and nightclubs that ooze an eclectic atmosphere after the sun has set.

Korcula is famous for being the birthplace of Marco Polo (a friendly rivalry with the Venetians, who also claim Marco Polo was born in Venice!) and you can visit the Marco Polo museum in Korcula’s Old Town. Korcula is one stop on your itinerary that makes for an intriguing and memorable stay.

This natural bay is the perfect destination to spend a relaxed evening swimming, sunbathing, and enjoying traditional Dalmatian cuisine in small, locally run restaurants.

Yacht Charter FAQ'S

What Health and Safety Measures Will be In Place in Light of COVID-19?

Sail Croatia takes the health and safety of our guests and staff seriously and as such we will be implementing measures onboard our yachts to limit and prevent the spread of the virus. To view the Health and Safety measures that will be in place, please view our Cruise with Confidence page.

Whilst we will endeavour to do our very best to reduce the spread of COVID-19, please recognise that there is a clear risk of the spread of the disease whilst on holiday. Our aim is to keep our guests safe and Croatia free of the spread of the virus. We kindly ask for your support throughout this process. Our measures will continue to be updated in line with best practices and Government guidelines.

Do I have to hire a Skipper?

No you don't need to hire a Skipper! If you have a valid Skipper license & VHF license, you are welcome to skipper your own yacht! Please ensure your qualifications match those available in the above list. If you are unsure whether your qualification is acceptable, please contact our team immediately. It is essential that you email through a copy of your qualifications to [email protected] prior to your departure, as we need to register you with the relevant Port Authorities.

Please note: A photo of your Skipper’s license (taken on your mobile device) can be sent through to us prior to your departure, however you will need to provide the original (hard copy) license and/or certificate upon check in and carry this with you throughout the duration of your Yacht Charter. This process helps to avoid any delays on your departure day, and is a legal requirement of chartering a vessel in Croatia.

What ages are suitable for a Yacht Charter?

All ages are welcome onboard our yachts although practically it is recommended children are able to swim and additional considerations be taken into account such as moving around the yachts, moving booms and ropes, slippery surfaces, boarding and crossing from shore to the yacht. Risks are clearly visible and additional precautions should be taken with children onboard particularly for non-swimmers. For all children onboard we recommend you bring with you well fitted children life jackets and harness with tether system. Remember it is hot in July and August so wearing a life jacket may cause overheating and children to be uncomfortable. Inflatable life jackets with a tether maybe a more suitable option for children. We also recommend the use of nets which go around the yacht, particularly for bookings with children aged 6 and under, and we can organise this at the time of booking

What are obligatory extras?

Obligatory extras are additional items that you will be required to pay for when hiring a yacht. These items vary from yacht to yacht and include items such as final cleaning and Croatia local tax. Please view the yachts obligatory extras section on the yacht details page to see the specific items for each yacht.

What are optional extras?

Optional extras are additional items that you can add to your booking. Please visit the yacht details pages to view the optional extras that are available with each yacht.

What are the average mooring costs in Croatia?

Mooring buoys (estimated 30-40 Euros per night*) offer seclusion and privacy. Marinas (40-130 Euros per night*) have cafes, restaurants, showers & toilet facilities along with shore power and fresh-water refills for the yacht. In our experience a mixture of both options gives the best balance through the week for most groups. We find overnighting in locations that are a little further from marinas and towns are generally more affordable. *Please note: The cost of mooring buoys and marinas are estimations and are based on a 40ft yacht. The size of your vessel and date may affect the price of mooring buoys and marinas.

Where can I sail to?

Yacht Charters operate on Split Return routes only, as these vessels will not have enough time to make it from the lower coast back to Split in 7 days. We recommend one of 3 itineraries; Famed Favourites, Island Explorer and Off The Beaten Track.

What extra expenses do I need to pay for?

You’ll want to start your week by stocking your boat with food and drink – your skipper will be able to advise you of the best place to shop. It’s customary to pay for your skipper’s expenses for the week, including water taxis, meals and drinks. You’ll also have to pay a local tax for every person on your boat (including skipper & host/hostess, if applicable) for the number of days travelling. This is payable in cash at the marina.

Whats the difference between the Pay Now and Pay Locally price totals?
