From Brijuni islands in the north to Dubrovnik in the south - boating in Croatia offers so much that you may want to come back next year to see all the other sites :-)

Taking a trip to the lovely and pristine island nation of Croatia?

Did you know that one of the best ways to enjoy Croatia's islands is by boating?

  • You'll have greater access to more islands, islets, bays and harbors.
  • You'll be able to take your time and set your own pace without having to worry about making the ferry on time, if you rely on the ferry service.
  • And local transportation can only take you so far, maybe within the mainland and some of the nearby “connected” islands.

Boating In Croatia: Crewed Chartered Boats

One of the easiest ways to go boating in Croatia is to charter your own boat.

You can practically get any boat you want - small dinghy or a luxurious yacht - the choice is only limited by how much you're willing and able to pay!

The best thing about crewed chartered boats is that you can

  • just sit back
  • relax
  • and enjoy the journey :-)

Most charter companies have the experience and knowledge to guide and recommend the best places to go for your boating trip!

They are also willing to consult with you on what you're looking for - like your choice of islands and things that you can do. They can then organize the best route and boating itinerary for you to maximize your travel time.

Another plus factor is that they'll handle all the necessary paperwork prior to your trip so all you have to do is show up, pay for their services and take pleasure from the experience.

"Bareboat" Chartered Boats

You have a choice of going "bareboat" meaning you'd rather pilot the boat yourself. This works only if you've got the essential qualifications and experience required to make your trip safe and enjoyable.

It's also important that you know your way around the area, get yourself familiar with the Croatian marinas and ports, be informed about fees and taxes and be aware of weather conditions and forecasts so that your trip will run smoothly.

Boating In Croatia: Skippered Chartered Boats

So you don't want a whole crew underfoot on your journey, but you're not so confident of your boating skills. What else is left? You can charter a boat with a skipper!


Boating In Croatia: Choices Of Boats

Regardless whether you're taking a crew with you or not, there are many choices of boats at your disposal. Here are just some of them:

Sailing Yachts and Gulets - are perfect for a leisurely, relaxing trip. It also gives the flexibility to change destinations at your whim.


Sailing yachts give you the privacy that a crewed yacht can't so it's a favorite choice among honeymooners, small families and groups of friends. Don't be bothered if there's no wind because all you have to do is turn on the engine and you can proceed to your destination.

Motor Yachts and Power boats - satisfy your need for speed. If you also have a tendency to change your mind at the last minute, motor yachts are also a good choice because they're easily maneuverable.

Passengers can also travel in great comfort and luxury. If you want to make your holiday worthwhile and be able to pack a lot of things to do and see in one day or two, then chartering a power boat or motor yacht will be a good investment.


Catamarans - if you want speed coupled with sailing comfort, a catamaran is perfect. It also gives you better accessibility and maneuverability especially in shallow waters where the bigger boats can't go.

You can also travel in comfort because the cabins are larger and separated by the hulls.


Mega-Yachts - are for those who care to cruise in the lap of luxury. Imagine yourself on deck with a full crew at your beck and call, complete with all the amenities to ensure a full and enjoyable trip.

Your menu for the duration of the cruise will be sent to you prior to your departure to ensure that everything you want will be prepared to your liking.


Luxury Cruises - If you're not interested in renting a boat for yourself but would like the option of not having any worries over the trip, then pamper yourself with luxury cruises that can take you across set destinations.

They also offer flight and transfer assistance as part of their all-inclusive packages.
