Croatia

There are several ways to cruise in Croatia. Thanks to German, Austrian and Slovenian investments, there are more than 40 modern marinas now, each being a suitable boarding place. An important fleet of crewed yachts has recently been attracted to the trendiest places of Croatia. Trogir, Pula and Brijuni are welcoming some of the most exclusive yachts of the Mediterranean. Since 1st. January 2005 the Croatian authorities allow only Croatian flagged yachts to operate charters from Croatia. But the quality of of those yachts is poor. There are of course a number of traditional Gulets and wooden motorsailers out there, most of them, cruising under Croatian flag. Non-Croatian flagged yachts can board their guests from neighbouring Montenegro and Italy (Venice). This offers variety and easy access. Of course the Adriatic sea is a wonderful destination. The beauty of Croatia's coast, the more than thousand islands, the medieval towns, the temperate climate and the favourable winds and the authentic character of the population will satisfy the expectations of those willing to discover this fairly 'new' destination. The ports that our yachts depart from are situated all along the Adriatic coast, mostly conveniently located in the vicinity of an airport. The main airports for starting a cruise are Split , followed by Pula, Zadar and Dubrovnik, other airports being smaller with no decent connections. The many islands, such as Brijuni, Cres, Krk and Losinj are easily accessed from the ports in the Northern Adriatic. From Zadar, the islands of Kornati can be reached. From Split or Dubrovnik you can visit the islands of South Dalmatia, such as Solta, Brac, Hvar, Korcula, Vis, Mljet and Lastovo. Notwithstanding the rich culinary traditions of the country, the quality of the food served in restaurants is rather weak. It is worth having a good cook on board and, when eating out, preferring simple, grilled seafood. Because of the very basic road infrastructures, we will try hard to keep your transfers by road as short as possible. You should remember this each time you plan an excursion ashore. The climate is Mediterranean along the Adriatic coast, meaning warm dry summers and mild winters. T he winds are favourable (N-NW) and Croatians enjoy 2,600 hours of sunlight on yearly average. In the interior of the country, the climate is continental with hot summers and cold, snowy winters.
