What Health and Safety Measures Will be In Place in Light of COVID-19?
What about food and drink?
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. In line with Government guidelines,
our staff members have been trained to adhere to strict Health and Safety procedures and policies until
measures can be relaxed.
Upon advice from the Croatian Institute for Public Health, please expect the following measures to be in place
throughout your yacht experience:
- Check-in may take longer than usual and will be conducted outdoors in a specially designated area
- Social distancing measures will be in place in accordance with government guidelines
- Staff will wear appropriate PPE when working around our yachts and guests. This may include masks whenever
inside social distancing guidelines and gloves whenever touching surfaces
- All vessels will be cleaned thoroughly and an additional final disinfection process will occur prior to
- Hand sanitizer will be available on all yachts and is a requirement when boarding
- Skippers and Hosts will undertake weekly Covid testing for additional client peace of mind
Whilst we will endeavor 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. If you have any questions, a member of
our Sales Team will be able to assist you.
What ages are suitable for a Private Yacht Tour?
Food and drink are not included in a Private Yacht Tour. Each yacht is equipped with a kitchenette including a gas stove, oven and
kettle. There is a small grocery store at ACI Marina in Split as well as the many stops during the week. This way you can pick out
exactly the food you'll prefer for breakfast and lunch at sea. In the evenings you'll have a wide variety of restaurant options.
Croatia has delicious, locally-grown food, and your skipper will be happy to recommend the perfect restaurant for your group.
Please budget to include food and drinks for your skipper and host/hostess (if booked) throughout the week. They will rarely turn
down an invitation to dine out as a member of your party, but they also won’t mind dining separately. We recommend budgeting 20-25
Euros per person, per day for food.
How do Airport Transfers work?
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. Life jackets are provided for
all passengers onboard and buoyancy vests are available fo those that prefer lighter gear.
I’m driving to Split, is there car parking available?
Each Private Yacht Tour is entitled to 2 transfers per booking. Most clients organise their flights to arrive
and depart together as a group, taking advantage of one airport transfer to the check in point and one
transfer to the airport at the end of the week. If you don’t need an airport transfer but would still like to
make use of this inclusion, we can organise a transfer from your Hotel to your check in location and vice
versa. However you decide to use your 2 x Airport Transfers, simply get in touch with our sales team at least
one week before your departure and we will be happy to organise them.
What are the average mooring costs in Croatia?
You are able to exchange your included airport transfers for complimentary car parking for the duration of your Private Yacht Tour
What are the sleeping arrangements?
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.
What kind of luggage can I bring?
The yachts and catamarans within our fleet feature mostly double cabins with some twin/bunk cabins. If all
cabins are in use onboard, the Skipper will use the salon seating area to sleep in, which converts to a double
bed. For catamarans, if all main cabins are in use, the Skipper will have a separate crew cabin onboard.
Please note that crew cabins are not equipped with a bathroom, meaning that the Skipper will require access to
What money should I bring?
While you’re welcome to bring whatever kind of luggage you like, we recommend bringing a soft-sided bag such
as a backpack, rucksack or duffel bag. Soft-style bags can be stowed away under the floorboards, giving you
more room during the week.
When does the trip start?
Even though Croatia joined the European Union in July 2013, their currency is still the Croatian Kuna. The
best way to get Kunas is to withdraw directly from an ATM (available in most large towns, Split Airport and
What time do the trips finish?
For all departures starting in Split on a Saturday, check in is from 5pm in ACI Split Marina. If you're
departing on a Sunday or Wednesday from Split, check in will commence from 2pm. If you’re joining us on a
Dubrovnik to Split route, your check in will commence at 2pm for a 3pm departure from ACI Marina Dubrovnik.
Please note: check in times from Dubrovnik are not flexible and must occur between 2pm and 3pm. If you are
planning to arrive later, please let our Reservations Team know, as fees may apply.
Who are Private Yacht Tours suitable for?
We ask all our passengers to disembark by 8:30am on their final day, to allow us time to clean the yacht
before the next departure.
Can I do a One Way Itinerary?
Private Yacht Tours are suitable for couples looking for a romantic week away, families or groups of friends
wanting to do something completely independent.
How does Sail Croatia contribute to sustainable tourism?
One Way itineraries (Split – Dubrovnik & Dubrovnik – Split) are available on selected yachts and catamarans
only. If you are interested in a one way itinerary, please check with our Sales Team for availability. Please
note: a one way fee of 350 Euros is charged for all one way itineraries. Mooring fees in Dubrovnik are not
included on any one way itineraries.
