Itinerary suggestionn

Day 1: Arrive at Kremik

The picturesque bay where Kremik Marina is located is surrounded by 100 year old vineyards which produce the famous Babić wine.
Kremik Marina is well protected as its set into the land. The Kornati National Park is only 30 nautical miles away


Day 2: Zirje Luka, Zirje – 15 miles, 3 hours

Zirje is the largest of the islands lying off the Adriatic coast near Sibenik, but it still measures only 11 km by 2.5 km (6 ½ miles by 1 ½ miles). The coastline of the island has a number of sheltered anchorages easily visited on your yacht charter.

Yachts can tie up on the quayside where there is a single restaurant catering to visiting charterers. Uval Stupica Vela is the island’s most popular anchorage as it is well sheltered and very scenic – an idyllic spot to while away a few quiet hours.

There are other anchorages at Uvala Tratinska and Uvala Mikavica, the latter a deserted inlet with a quay used by the odd tripper boat and visiting charterer during the summer months.


Day 3: Prvic Luka, Prvic – 10 miles, 2 hours

Sail through St Anthony’s Channel, a narrow, cliff-lined waterway which leads from the bay of Sibenik out into the open sea to the island of Prvic. At the far end of the channel lies the sixteenth century St Nicholas’ Fortress, a monumental triangular gun battery placed here by Venetian engineers to keep enemy shipping away from Sibenik’s port. The island of Prvic is surrounded by crystal clear waters.


Day 4: Skradin – 15 miles, 3 hours

Pick up a lazy line at the marina and take a water taxi up to the famous Krka Falls for an unforgettable day at this must-see highlight of Croatia.


Day 5: Primosten – 20 miles, 3 hours

Primosten is a pleasant holiday resort on a small island joined to the mainland by a causeway, lying 20 km south of Sibernik and was originally surrounded by walls to protect the inhabitants from the Turks. The walls are now gone and Primosten is the kind of place where you could rest up quite happily for a day or two, kicking back and doing nothing much at all.


Day 6: Vodice – 20 miles, 4-5 hours

A lively town with a great nightlife, enjoy a delicious meal at one of the many eateries.


Day 7: Free Sailing

On Departure

At the end of your charter your yacht will need to be vacated by 9:00 am so we recommend that you return to the base the day before.

Before departing the boat please collect a debrief form from reception.

The debrief form is to let us know if you have encountered any problems with the boat or broken anything during the trip, this enables us to rectify problems for the next charter.

In addition to filling in forms we also require you to bag dirty laundry and leave in the cockpit, empty all cupboards and refrigerator of food and throw away, return snorkel gear and any lifejackets borrowed from reception and ensure that the boat is handed back to us in a clean and tidy state.

Sailing Licenses

To charter in Croatia, there must be at least one certified skipper over 18 years old. The skipper should be competent at handling a yacht in close quarters, anchoring and mooring in varying conditions and be able to use navigation and pilotage skills to plan the day’s sailing and know your position at any time. As a yacht skipper, you are required to have an official sailing license or a certificate issued by a government of state approved organization as detailed below:

This list is organized by country and details the accepted competence levels for experience, boat size and distance-from-shore-sailing for the various certificates accepted.


Mooring Fees

Mooring fees are usually charged in harbours and on town quays by the local municipality. These are usually between €25 and €30 which is less than the per night charges in the larger marinas, but shower and toilet facilities may not be available.Well equipped marinas are common in Croatia and generally cost about €50 (for a 30 ft yacht) to €80 (for a 50ft yacht) per night. The actual price is dependent on the size of your yacht and the specific marina pricing policy. Shore power, water, and shower and toilet facilities are included in the cost of berthing in a marina.

Dolphins swimming along side the boat. Dropping the anchor in remote bays to dine and snorkle way off the beaten track. An unforgettable experience.

I have had 2 weeks north of Kremik this year and two weeks south last year. The north is much more rugged, with many islands, and to the south is more populated.

Straight forward and stress free from booking online to stepping on board in Kremik. The staff at HO to the staff on the base could not have been more helpful.
