Explore Croatia by boat

Split, Croatia’s second biggest city, is a true gem worth exploring by boat. Its old town will take your breath away with its historical monuments and narrow, cobbled streets. There are also many destinations in the vicinity to discover: Brač, Hvar, Lastovo, Trogir and Vis, all islands of outstanding beauty. You can also sail to Zadar and stroll around the city’s picturesque centre. If you opt for a yacht charter in Croatia, visit the Kornati National Park to explore its 147 islands. This part of Croatia is a paradise on earth, home to rare flora and fauna. An ideal destination for nature lovers offering opportunities for several outdoors activities, such as hiking, snorkeling, and swimming in the sea.

And then there is Dubrovnik,"the pearl of the Mediterranean" as this beautiful city is also known. You will marvel at the city’s gracious walls and the old port where you can dock if you rent a boat in Croatia. The old town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, will take you back to another era. Sailing enthusiasts love Croatia for its modern boating infrastructure and marinas in most sailing destinations, including Pula ACI Marina, Brac, Split, Dubrovnik ACI Marina, Rijeka and Trogir. There are also many remote coves and bays to explore to enjoy a boating trip with your family or friends. Many visitors choose to rent a sailboat, a catamaran or a motorboat to propose to their significant other or to enjoy an unforgettable honeymoon trip.

FAQs for boat rental in Croatia

When is the yachting high season in Croatia?

As in most Mediterranean countries, high season includes the biggest part of July and August, with June and early September being also busy months in popular yachting destinations such as Split, Dubrovnik and Hvar. If you book a yacht charter in Croatia in mid/later spring or early autumn you may also find weather conditions favourable for sailing, as well as boats available at affordable prices.

What type of boat should I rent in Croatia?

The majority of visitors who rent a boat in Croatia opt for motorboats, with a minority of seasoned sailors preferring sailboats. However, an increasing number of Click&Boat users rent catamarans in Croatia – it’s a boat that combines comfort, speed and space, an ideal offer for big families.

How many days will I need for a sailing trip in Croatia?

It depends on your budget and personal taste. Many visitors opt to explore Dalmatia to visit picturesque cities of recent Game of Thrones fame such as Split and Dubrovnik. Then they head for the numerous small islands of the Dalmatian archipelago – the region lends itself to a one-week island-hopping trip, with popular stopovers including Brac, Hvar, Korcula, Vis and Pag. If you opt to visit the up-and-coming region of Istria on the north and particularly the scenic town of Pula, you will need up to 20 days.

Do I need a licence to hire a boat in Croatia?

In most cases, you can book a bareboat boat rental in Croatia if you hold a licence recognised in another EU country, such as an ICC (International Certificate of Competence) or International Certificate for Operator of Pleasure Craft. For sailboats smaller than 2,5m you will not need any licence. If you do not hold the required licence, you will be able to book via Click&Boat a skippered yacht charter in Croatia.

If I charter a yacht in Croatia, will I get insurance coverage?

Yes, all boats available for rental in Croatia via Click&Boat are insured.

Where should I start my boat trip in Croatia?

Most boat renters start their journey from one of the big ports in the south: Split, Dubrovnik or Zadar. Particularly the first two are home to large airports where flights from major European counties arrive.

What are the most common winds you may encounter when sailing in Croatia?

The main winds you need to take into account when planning your boat rental in Croatia are the following: Tramontana, a strong northern/northwestern wind; Bura, a dry, strong and fairly unpredictable northern wind; and Jugo (Sirocco), a dry, warm southeastern wind coming from the Sahara, often accompanied by heavy rain and storms.

Do I need a visa to visit Croatia?

If you are a citizen of an EU country you will not need a visa, as Croatia is a member of the EU, although it has not joined yet the border-free Schengen Zone. American citizens won’t need a visa either. If you hold a US passport you will get a stamp when you arrive at the airport. It is equivalent to a visa and allows you to stay in the country for 3 months..

What currency will I need in Croatia?

The currency used in the country is the Croatian kuna, although Croatia is expected to adopt the euro by 2025. Some shops and hotels also accept euros.

What Croatian specialties should I try?

Croatia boasts a fine cuisine combining the staples of Balkan cuisine with Central European culinary rigour. Take for example the world-famed Black Risotto, owing its unique colour to squid ink. Brudet is a delicious fishfood stew with onions, tomatoes or other vegetables, often marinated in local wine or prosecco. To wash it down, have a glass of Rakija, a fairly strong (40% alcohol!) fruit brandy. Honey or plum rakija is definitely a treat!
