Yacht charter Dubrovnik

Dubrovnik is one of the most beautiful cities in the Mediterranean and is located in scenic southern Dalmatia. A fascinating island world stretches off the coast, which can be discovered on a yacht charter from Dubrovnik. A great advantage of the region is its proximity to Central Europe. The short journey and quite easy sailing conditions make it possible for families to spend exciting days at sea here.

In the high season, the city called "Pearl of the Adriatic" is served by direct flights from various charter companies. Alternatively, you can fly via Zagreb, from where Croatia Airlines flies regularly to Dubrovnik. An alternative is to travel by car, which first leads to Rijeka. From there, the route follows the charming coastal road "Adria-Magistrale" down to southern Dalmatia. If you want to save yourself the approximately 600 kilometer drive, you can board a ferry of the Jadrolinija company in Rijeka. It connects the main coastal cities of Croatia. If you want to rent a boat and reach Dubrovnik, you can enjoy a cheap and comfortable journey.


Dubrovnik - the pearl of the Adriatic Sea

If you plan a yacht charter in Dubrovnik you should spend some time in the city. The well-preserved old town offers a fascinating medieval flair, which invites to a romantic stroll through the alleys. The city wall around the city is almost two kilometers long. It is part of one of the best preserved fortifications in Europe. To the west of the old town, the Lovrjenac Fortress, a landmark of Dubrovnik, is perched on a hill. In the summer, festivals are held here. Another place for festivals is the Stradun promenade.

The old town is on the UNESCO World Heritage List and is home to numerous sights. During a yacht charter in Dubrovnik, be sure to allow time for sightseeing. Highlights include the city gates, the Onofrio Fountain and the old city harbor, where the harbor café offers a nice view of the action.

Near the harbor rises the Gothic Rector's Palace, which also shows elements of Baroque and Rococo. Earthquakes destroyed the building several times, but it was always rebuilt. Today it houses the town museum. Imposing is the cathedral, which, along with the church of St. Blasius, is one of the most interesting churches. A cable car goes up to the mountain Srd. From it opens a beautiful view of the city and the possible route yacht charter from Dubrovnik. Other sights are the Dominican and Franciscan monasteries.

The marina in Dubrovnik

Dubrovnik has two marinas. ACI Marina is located in a narrow fjord in Komolac, about six kilometers north of the old town. The infrastructure is excellent, including guarded parking. There is a boat refueling station, sanitary facilities, catering and numerous recreational facilities. There are about 380 berths available, the water depth is three to five meters. Regular buses run between the marina and the old town.

Since 2019, there has been another marina in Dubrovnik opposite the mooring for the large passenger ships. Marina Frapa is about half the size of ACI Marina, which is further out. The water depth is between four and ten meters. The advantage of the new facility is its proximity to the old town. Both marinas offer good opportunities to buy provisions for the upcoming cruise.

Islands around Dubrovnik

Southwest of the Elaphites are other islands to which a yacht charter can lead from Dubrovnik. Mljet is the greenest island in Croatia. A large part forms a national park, which is the oldest marine protected area in the Mediterranean. The 5,300-hectare area is a must-see for those who rent a boat and make Dubrovnik the starting point for a cruise. Mljet and the waters surrounding the island are home to numerous endangered and endemic species. In addition, there are remains of historical settlements, including a Benedictine monastery, which is one of the most beautiful places in the region. On the shore, romantic coves and caves beckon to be discovered by swimming or canoeing.

To the west lies the island of Korčula, which is just under 50 nautical miles from the Dubrovnik marina. Near the island's capital is the seaside resort of Lumbarda, which has one of Croatia's rare sandy beaches. The romantic old town of Korčula has been almost completely preserved since the 15th century and is well worth a visit on a yacht charter from Dubrovnik. Idyllic is the location of the nearby bathing islands, where it is nice to relax. To the west on the south coast lies the village of Smokvica, whose wine cellar Toreta offers excellent wines. To the west is the bay of Vela Luka, from where a hike to the Great Cave (Vela Spila) is worthwhile. It is world famous for its archaeological findings from 20,000 years ago.

Near the island of Korčula is the island of Lastovo, which is almost as wooded as Mljet. But much more interesting are the many caves and grottos that can be discovered here. Carnival is celebrated on the island in October. The most beautiful bay is Skrivena Luka. It is wonderfully sheltered for anchoring and enjoying restaurants and bars.

It is worth renting a boat and making Dubrovnik the starting point for a sailing trip. The enchanting island world offers romantic bays, exciting adventures in sea caves and thrilling shore excursions. In addition, the crystal clear water invites you to snorkel and dive. The best sailing conditions are in summer. However, then the area is quite crowded. Those who can cope with somewhat stronger winds will find more peace and quiet in spring and autumn.
