Description

Why we love Croatia and you will too

Could Croatia be the perfect sailing destination? Quite possibly… Yes, it’s that good. Picture lively character towns interspersed with quiet harbours and isolated bays, beautiful Venetian architecture, perfectly clear water, gentle sailing winds and more islands than you could visit in a year. Croatia has a very special place in the heart of Seamaster, we have spent many a sailing holidays sailing this wonderful country and look forward to sharing her secrets with you. 

Croatia has exploded onto the European and world travel stage in recent years, with visitor numbers booming. Foremost amongst those ‘discovering’ Croatia is the nautical community, as word spreads about the world-class sailing experience on offer.

For ease of reference, we separate Croatia into two general sailing areas – The Dalmatian Islands and the Kornati Islands. From Split, which has the main airport on the Croatian coast, the Kornatis are north and the Dalmatians are south. Each offers a very distinct yacht charter experience, so it is important to understand the characteristics of each before booking a charter to Croatia.

The southerly Dalmatian Islands off a perfect cross-section of Croatia. Accessed from Split and Dubrovnik, they offer a more cosmopolitan experience, with larger islands supporting larger villages and towns. It’s not all party time though, there are still many quiet bays, small villages and destinations ‘off the beaten track’.

Overall, expect a heady mix of excellent balanced sailing conditions, lively cosmopolitan islands, quiet bays and old world fortress towns.

The northerly Kornati Islands, in general, are a quieter and more intrepid sailing experience, with hundreds of small uninhabited islands interspersed with single traverna bays  and areas awarded national park status purely by virtue of their outstanding natural beauty.

The Kornatis are breath-taking in their natural beauty. A lovely collection of quiet islands hosting isolated single tavernas, two stunning national parks, and wonderful sailing conditions.

"There’s a sense of liberty on a yacht that you just can’t get any other way on this kind of coastline. With your own yacht, the whole coastline becomes one big beach."

Sailing Qualifications

To bareboat charter a yacht in Croatia you are required to have a valid sailing qualification issued by a recognised authority (e.g RYA, IYT, USSA). Alongside this you will also need a stand alone VHF radio licence. In some cases ‘shorebased’ qualifications are also accepted, but please check these with us before booking. To charter large catamarans (over 30 GT) you will need a minimum of an RYA Yacht Master, or equivalent, plus the VHF licence.

Money and Currency

The local currency in Croatia is the Kuna. There are a plentiful supply of cash machines and bureau de change on the islands so withdrawing money and changing alternative currencies is relatively easy. We recommend you arrive with enough local currency to cover the first couple of days of your holiday. Cards are accepted in supermarkets but most tavernas and local tourist shops only accept cash.

Language

The national language of Croatia is Croatian! However, English is widely spoken and understood throughout, especially within the service industry, including taverna staff and taxi drivers. All Seamaster partners and crew speak English proficiently.
