Croatian KUNA. Croatia is a member of the EU, but the official currency is still Kuna. Current exchange rate: 1€ = 1.1$ = 7.4 KUNA. On some islands, especially in restaurant and anchoring your sailing boat in buoy fields, you won't be able to use your credit card. That is why is recommended, that you have some KUNAS in you pocket at all times.
ATMs are available in every marina and town port in Croatia. Don't leave you money and valuable things aboard, if you leave your yacht. It can attract unwanted attention. A budget around 30€ per day per person for your 7-day sailing tour should do.
