Why Choose a Dalmatian Islands Flotilla?

I

f you are looking for a sailing holiday that combines some stunning scenery with superb sailing breezes then look no further than the Dalmatian coast and our great Sibenik flotilla. Since moving north from Split, this flotilla has gone from strength to strength, and is now vying for top spot on our most popular list.

If you can’t spare the time to spend two weeks sailing, then the choice of which route is a tricky one. The Kornati route takes you into the Kornati national park, off the beaten track with beautiful uninhabited islands and bays to explore. The Hvar route takes you to Split, Starigrad and Primosten, with some great open water sailing and beautiful anchorages along the way.

Whichever you choose, you start and end your memorable Croatian flotilla holiday at our exclusive base in Zaton, Sibenik, perfectly situated to explore the Dalmatian coast and the islands.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I choose a flotilla holiday?

You will be in charge of your own chartered yacht as part of a flotilla fleet of not more than twelve yachts. Your professional lead crew will be on hand to assist and guide you through the beautiful waters, organising social events along the way. The crew’s aim is to make this a personal experience for you, and their local knowledge will help to make your holiday a very special one.

What is included with my flotilla holiday?

  • Return flights from the UK (on flight inclusive packages)
  • Overseas airport transfers (on flight inclusive packages)
  • ATOL Protection (on flight inclusive packages)
  • Fully equipped charter yacht
  • Dinghy with outboard engine
  • A Seafarer welcome punch party
  • A Seafarer beach party (14 night flotilla holidays only)
  • End cleaning of your flotilla yacht
  • The services of our experienced lead crew and the support of our local base team / local agents
  • One full tank of diesel, full water tank(s) and cooking gas
  • Welcome pack of provisions and cleaning products to get you started
  • Bed linen, shower towels & tea towels.
  • Free WIFI on board your flotilla yacht.

Note: Mooring charges (except at flotilla base) extra fuel or water; food, drink and items of a personal nature such as laundry are excluded. For those extending their holiday after the yacht charter, transfer costs from yacht base to your accommodation are usually excluded and payable locally unless you are booking a flight inclusive package.

Do I need a sailing license?

Yes, Croatian authority regulations are strict in this respect. Skippers must be in possession of an internationally recognised license. For those with UK issued licenses, the most common on these would be the RYA Day Skipper Practical (or higher), or the International Certificate of Competence (ICC). In addition, the skipper is required to hold an appropriate VHF radio license, for example the RYA Marine Radio (SRC). If you are unsure whether your qualification is sufficient, please call us to discuss this.

Do I need a visa for my holiday in Croatia?

No, for British citizens, a tourist visa is not required. Remember, though, that you will need to pay a tourist tax upon arrival. This is currently 1 euro per person per night.

Will I have to pay mooring fees?

On our flotillas, the first and last night of your charter will be at our base in Zaton, and we cover the fees for this. During the course of a flotilla week you will stop at a couple of marinas, as well as town quays, mooring buoys and anchorages. The prices for these vary considerably, but as a guide, marinas will cost around £1.50 per foot per night, town quays will cost around £1.00 per foot per night and mooring buoys can cost the same, although this often includes national park fees. Your crew will keep you informed and will offer a choice of mooring arrangements if possible.

What wind conditions can I expect?

Generally the prevailing wind is from the North West and the strength ranges from force 2 to force 5. The wind generally increases in the afternoon and in the summer months stronger temporary winds can occur from time to time.

What's included in my welcome pack?

Your flotilla welcome pack includes a few essentials to get you started:

  • Water, tea, coffee, milk, fruit juice
  • Biscuits, seasonal fruit
  • Washing up liquid, sponge, bin bags, matches
  • Toilet paper, hand soap

How much cash should I take with me?

Obviously this will depend on what your plans are, but generally you can expect to pay around 150-200 Kuna (£15-£20) per person for an evening meal. Although most places take card, it is good practice to have enough cash with you to cover any bill. Cash points are available near to our base in Zaton and widely available in Sibenik as well as some of the larger villages and towns – your flotilla crew know exactly where and when you can get more and they will keep you updated as your holiday progresses. Travellers cheques are no longer readily accepted, and Croatian Kuna is the currency used in Croatia.

Do I need to stock up with provisions at base?

A few basic supplies and plenty of water is always good to have on the yacht, with a with a supermarket a few minutes away in the town of Zaton. The majority of the flotilla stops have some facilities and shops. Your flotilla route will include stops at isolated restaurants with their own quay (where you are expected to eat in return for free mooring) and small villages and towns with a variety of restaurants for the evenings.

What are the rules regarding Holding Tanks in Croatia?

There are no formal regulations concerning the fitting and use of holding tanks in Croatia and indeed there are still a great number of charter yachts in the Adriatic without fitted holding tanks. Our recommendation is to follow recommended practice, i.e. only discharge a holding tank well out to sea and to certainly avoid discharge in marinas, bays and anchorages. It is recommended that shore facilities are used whenever possible.

Where in the UK can I fly from?

You can fly direct to Split from London Heathrow, Gatwick, Luton & Stansted, Bristol, Glasgow, Manchester and Birmingham.

How far is the base from the airport?

The transfer (which we can arrange for you) from Split airport to our base in Zaton, Sibenik, takes approximately 1 hour, always by air-conditioned taxi, minbus or coach.

You are spoilt for choice for your free sailing – you can head around Otok Ciovo to Split (14nm). Moor in the marina and take the water taxi across to the Diocletian palace. Alternatively, 10 nautical miles due south takes you to Solta, and the beautiful bay of Sesula or the marina in Maslinica. Hvar is also possible, but leaves you plenty of miles to cover tomorrow, great excuse for some sailing!
