THE ULTIMATE FREEDOM

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 experienced local skippers are available for hire with each yacht if you don't have a qualified crew member. Hiring your own sailing yacht provides you with a unique way to see Croatia. Similar to hiring a car, you decide 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!

Recommended Itineraries

Itinerary One Itinerary One
SPLIT
DAY 1 | Start

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 beautiful 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.

Our base manager will be waiting to welcome you at 5pm at ACI Marina, Split, to check you in before you set sail on day one.

SUPETAR
DAY 1 | Overnight Stay

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 euros. Cash only
  • Marinas: 40 – 130 Euros. Cash/card options available
VIS
DAY 2 | Overnight Stay

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 has an exciting military history with plenty of defenses and bunkers to discover and is 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 interesting insight into an authentic way of life, preserved buildings and a thriving fishing community. Renting a bike or scooter is a great way to get around on Vis and really take in this delightfully scenic island, streaked with vineyards, charming villages, and sun-soaked mountains amongst its military scars.

Approximate Mooring Fees:

  • Mooring buoys - 30-40 Euros. Cash only
  • Marinas: 40 – 130 Euros. Cash/card options available
KOMIZA
DAY 3 | Overnight Stay

Leave Vis Town behind and sail around to Komiza, also on the island of Vis. Komiza is a small town on the southern edge of Vis island, that is 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 are many local agencies in Komiza and Vis that offer trips to the Blue Caves and these are usually only 1-2 hours long. If you want to go to the Blue Caves, your skipper or base manager can recommend an agency. There’s no shortage of things to do if you would rather stay on dry land, including dozens of military bunkers, bases, fortresses and museums. You can visit Tito’s Cave, which was Tito’s hiding place during the German raids of 1944. 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).

Approximate Mooring Fees:

  • Mooring buoys - 30-40 Euros. Cash only
  • Marinas: 40 – 130 Euros. Cash/card options available
HVAR
DAY 4 | Overnight Stay

After spending the last couple of days uncovering the rich past of Vis island, we set sail for Hvar. Famous for its lavender production, sun-soaked days, cobbled streets, and buzzing, vibrant nightlife, Hvar never disappoints. Climb the Spanjola Fortress and be snap-happy with the iconic view over Hvar. This is also a great place to watch the town bask in the beautiful glow of sunset. Hvar has plenty of waterfront cafes and narrow streets leading to secluded local restaurants for an unforgettable evening meal. If Hvar’s nightlife is on your radar, head out to Carpe Diem or Nautica Bar! Hvar boasts an enchanting atmosphere; anything is possible here on the sunniest island in Croatia.

If the marina in Hvar Town is full, you can dock in nearby Palmizana Bay. It is a short water taxi ride away from Hvar, and is often used by travellers spending the night in Hvar. This is also a cheaper option with regards to docking fees than staying in the centre of Hvar itself.

BOBOVISCA
DAY 6 | Overnight Stay

Today we’ll leave the island of Hvar behind and head back for one more night on Brac, this time in the village of Bobovisca. Few people have heard of Bobovisca, and even fewer have been, but this small village located on the island of Brac is indeed a hidden gem. 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.

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.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

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

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.
