Most of the crews arrive via the airports of Split or Dubrovnik, which can be easily reached by plane from Germany. The transfers to the charter bases usually only take 20 or 30 minutes, mostly from Split to Kastel or Dubrovnik to the ACI marina. By car it is almost 900 kilometers from Munich to the south of the district, to Kastel bei Split. Accordingly, only a few will consider the Flixbus as an alternative, which runs directly from Munich, but takes almost 15 hours

The most popular port of departure is Split, where MarinKastel is the largest charter port of departure on the whole coast. There are also other bases in the surrounding area, such as Trogir, Agan or Rogoznica. Those who want to start further south will choose Dubrovnik. There are a few other bases on the mainland, such as BaskVoda, which are rather inconvenient because of the longer transfers. However, the area is so popular that many crews who want to sail here no longer get ships in the high season and then start from bases further north near Sibenik or Murter. The choice of fleets is huge, which means comparatively low prices in a European comparison, even if the south is currently in great demand.

Weather statistics southern Croatia


In the summer months, the Maistral, a lighter wind from the northwest, blows very often on the coast. It develops gradually over the morning and usually reaches 3 to 4 Beaufort in the afternoon. Towards evening he falls asleep again relatively quickly.

The Boraus Nordost can bring strong winds and storms, which can get violent especially in the off-season, but is also always good for surprises in summer. Crews should seek protection in good time when borrowing is forecast. It often blows in very clear, good weather. If in doubt, refer to Croatian sources for critical predictions.

The so-called blows from the south Yugo, which almost always involves a worsening of the weather Clouds and rain brings with it. It can also reach storm strength, but generally does not blow as gustingly as the bora. In summer it is rare, in the off-season it often alternates with the borab. Longer Jugo brings high swell, the much approaching route across the Adrihat. The Croatian weather service predicts Borund Jugo quite reliably. Otherwise, the usual online or app weather info pages such as Windy.com, Windfinder.com (Pro version!) And others are often used. used.


In terms of navigation, the south is relatively uncomplicated, there are slightly fewer shoals and tiny islets and cairns than in the middle of the country. The greater distances between the offshore islands mean less protection than in the north, but the Borhier generally blows a little weaker. In the area there are a large number of buoy fields that the state assigns to tenants and of which there are now around 70 to 80 across the country. Whoever uses the buoys has to pay; the prices vary from about 2 to 5 euros per boat meter, depending on the location and popularity of the field. Important: If you want to anchor, you have to keep a distance of at least 150 meters from the fields (previously 250 meters). There is an occasional dispute about this regulation: Some operators also try to cash in on crews who anchor near the fields. In such a case you should keep your distance to avoid trouble. Not all buoy basic harnesses are strong enough and well maintained. In Croatia, the operators are not liable for the condition of the buoys, so you should not blindly rely on them in bad weather. Important in Croatia: The charter crew of the boat must have a radio license holder (SRC) on board, according to the regulation. It does not necessarily have to be the skipper, but it happens from time to time that a charter company requests this. And: If a dinghy is moved with an outboard motor, a person with a driver's license must sit in it, regardless of how much horsepower it has.


The south of Croatia has a slightly less dense chain of real full-service marinas than the center and north, accordingly the ports of Korcula, Dubrovnik or Split are often packed, especially on weekends. If you want a seat there, you have to come early or reserve in advance. This can be done via the ACI marina network or via corresponding port portals such as My Sea. But the many pretty communal harbors and private docks of restaurants or taverns are a good alternative to expensive marinas. The mooring fees vary accordingly. The prices for berths are high in the popular marinas, for a twelve-meter ship in Korcula, Dubrovnik or Split, for example, around 70 to 100 euros are due in the season, municipal ports or smaller marinas are significantly lower. Be careful, some ACI marinas are more expensive on weekends than during the week. The coasts of the islands offer a variety of beautiful, well-protected anchorages.

The south of Croatia is currently the most popular area on the Adriatic and probably also in the whole of the Mediterranean. The coast there differs somewhat from the middle: the offshore islands such as Brac, Hvar or Korculsare larger than most of the a little further north. They often tower higher, are more mountainous, and there is more green. All in all, this results in a picturesque backdrop, especially since many island locations fit in beautifully: Korcula, Dubrovnik, Hvar - all destinations that are definitely worth visiting. Crews will find great old towns there with winding streets, palm-lined promenades and a wide range of shops and restaurants for every taste and budget. The ideal complement to this is a huge selection of beautiful anchor bays with crystal clear water around the coasts of the islands, which offer beautiful places en masse. You need them too, because in midsummer it gets crowded in the area. In many bays, one or more restaurant operators wait for crews and often have good jetties, even with mooring lines, sanitary facilities, electricity and beautiful terraces. The sailors love the area for these small jetties and places, which are sometimes almost exclusively visited by yacht crews. Just like in northern Croatia, there are buoy fields for a fee in some bays, which on the one hand restrict free anchoring, but on the other hand are valued by many crews as an anchor alternative

The distances between the islands are somewhat larger in southern Dalmatia and therefore offer less protection than the northern coast in some sections, e.g. when crossing to the more outlying islands of Vis or Lastovo. Nevertheless, the area is not much more demanding than the middle, in which there are, for example, significantly more shallows. Shallows are usually well toned, electricity is seldom a problem, crews are most likely to have to deal with a powerful borehole. If you like, you can simply get from one destination to the next on the long coasts of the large islands. The distances are then short, more than a few hours of sailing are actually never necessary.

The area around Split is very busy in midsummer because of the fleet massing there. If you want to avoid the hustle and bustle, you can sail further south. From a little corcul on it becomes a little emptier. This is especially true for crews who are on the road for two weeks. Otherwise, the area is also ideal for a weekly cruise. If you start from Split, you can do an 80 to 100 mile long loop via Solta, the west side of Brac, Korcul or Vis. Here you will find a very varied area with so many alternative stops that it doesn't get boring even on a second or even third trip.
