9 Croatia sailing tips and some basic facts how to plan your vacation:


1. How to book a sailing holiday in Croatia?

Your seat aboard is guaranteed after you make a deposit of 50% of the whole amount. The rest you can pay one (1) month before embarkation. Do not be afraid to ask us anything. We will be glad to answer as soon as possible. If you plan to rent a sailing boat to explore on your own, feel free to check out our bareboat Croatia sailing charter.

2. What personal luggage to bring?


The climate on the Adriatic is all through the sailing season (April-October) quite mild and has the plenty of sun. In the summer time you just bring bathing suite, extra swimming towels, and your personal wardrobe(not too much). In case of bad weather you need to bring some warm clothes, maybe a sweater, water resistant wind jacket and a pair of sneakers with rubber sole.

It is highly recommended to bring your hand bag or knapsack instead of a plastic suitcase (to gain more space in your cabin). Make sure to check the Croatia weather forecast before going sailing.

4. What is the fuel and port/marina costs and what is the deposit for the yacht?


•  Some of our sailing packages and special offers already include the fuel for the boat. General sailboat consumption is 4-5L per hour. Usually the fuel cost ranges from 50-100€/week. It also depends upon the weather conditions and sailing dynamics.


•  Local port fees move around 50€/night for a 12 meter boat. The price includes water and electricity. Marinas are 10-20% higher since they also offer bathrooms with showers and toilets. Buoy anchorage cost ranges from 20-40€, anchoring is free. Prices also much depend upon the are you are sailing...


•  Deposit is the insurance(assurance), that you will return the yacht back in its previous condition. The crew is responsible for damage caused by their neglegance.The deposit is charged at the embarkation and it is refundable, if the boat is returned undamaged. The deposit amount is set by the charter policy (from 1000-3500€ payable by VISA, AMEX, EUROCARD, DINERS or cash). You can also insure the deposit with non-refundable fee. Our packages already have deposit insurance.

5. How to get to the marina?


It all depends upon where your point of departure is. We will inform you at least 1 month beforehand, where your charter boat is moored and the embarkation details. The specific directions, how to get to the marina and when and where you will embark, you receive with the voucher (general base info.). If you're coming by plane there is always enough transfers and taxis to take you to the marina. If you travel by car, you can always find free space in marina.

6. How is the sleeping accommodation organized?


You'll sleep aboard the sailing boat. Each sailing boat has spacious cabins for 2 persons, with double beds from 4-12 berths(depends on the boat capacity and length). There is also plenty of space in the salon, but we don't recommend to sleep there, especially if you want to have more space and privacy. One bed belongs to the skipper.

Don't bring your bed linen, pillows and blankets, because they are already on the boat!

7. Where and what to eat?


You can make your supplies and buy the provisions at the embarkation. Every marina in Croatia has its own supermarket, where you can buy as much as you need for one week. There will be plenty of stops in different marinas and villages along the sailing route. You can always buy fresh bread from the market, fresh vegetables, fruit, meat and fish.

The crew usually cooks aboard, where there is always a double gas cooker with oven installed. If the crew decides, we can visit typical restaurants, and seaside taverns that our skippers can recommend. You won't regret it...the prices in restaurants are quite favorable from 20 to 40€/person. However - be careful ! Sometimes the fish prices on the islands can get quite high, so check the menu and ask for the daily offer and prices beforehead.

Do not miss the opportunity to taste the local vines.

8. What are the extra expenses and what is included?


Even though Croatia is now (from July 2013) a member of the EU, the official currency is still Kuna. But you can (almost) everywhere pay in Euros. Usually in the restaurants, marinas, for port fees, gas stations...but not in grocery shops, super markets and 24/7s. ATMs are available in every marina and port in Croatia.

The current exchange rate: 1€ = 1.2$ = 7.5 Kuna.

9. What about the insurance?


It is highly recommended to arrange the travel insurance policy. Every person is sailing at their own risk. Our booking company Odjadraj Janez Rupnik S.P. does not carry any further responsibilities for injuries or accidents of the crew members during sailing - prior and after the embarkation.




-Due to the general charter conditions, the advance payment of 50% is nonrefundable.


-If you rent a bareboat yacht charter in Croatia, you need a valid skipper's license that is issued by the state authority of the country that you are coming from. For sailing in the Croatian territorial waters, you also need a VHF radio licence. To check out what kind of a license you need when renting a yacht charter in Croatia, click here.
