Dotted with islands big and small, the Croatian Adriatic is one of the most desirable yacht holiday destinations in Eastern Europe. Of the over 1000 islands, you can choose from the nearly 50 islands and islets which can be visited during your Croatia yacht charter holiday.
The major ports are Split and Dubrovnik. Within these regions, yachts can also begin or end their charters in Zadar, Sibenik, and Trogir. Other ports can also be possible based on the yacht’s booking schedule and time of year.
In Split, you could embark from the Riva, Sumpetar, or other smaller ports. The smaller the better as the Split Riva is high in traffic. For example, Sibenik and Trogir are ideal ports. Trogir is especially close to the Split airport than Split and allows for easy vehicle transfer to the boat at the harbor.
In Dubrovnik the ports usually used are Zaton or Slano. Dubrovnik is a great start or ending port. Arriving a day or two earlier or staying a day or two later offers a great opportunity to explore the Old Town. You can also take a cable car ride to the top and perhaps enjoy a nice lunch at the restaurant while you take in the amazing aerial views of Dubrovnik Old Town. There are also daily city tours available in Dubrovnik. The Dubrovnik Cilipi airport is where you can fly into or out of.
If you have the time, the Montenegro border is very close to Dubrovnik. A coastal scenic drive by rental car or by bus will take you from Dubrovnik, through (customs passage) Bosnia-Herzegovina, and into the picturesque and mountainous little country of Montenegro. Airports to take a flight out of Montenegro could be Podgorica or Tivat.
You can choose from Turkish gulets, Croatian gulets, sailing yachts, and motor yachts to charter for your holidays in Croatia. The selection is limited and the yachts do book up very early, as early as 6 to 18 months in advance.
