If you are interested in experiencing all that Dalmatia has to offer, Split and Trogir are a great starting point. Your yacht charter in Split offers two different sailing itinerary options, as you can either head to the Northern Dalmatian Islands and visit the famous Kornati National Park or sail south to the cosmopolitan islands of Brac, Hvar, Mljet, and Korcula.
On either route, you will find that Croatia has a little something for everyone. Spend your days enjoying the beautiful Mediterranean culture ashore, exploring tiny quaint fishing villages, and cosmopolitan cities ripe with ancient history. Or immerse yourself in nature. Take your time exploring Croatia’s rocky coastline, taking in the unique landscape, shrouded in knotty olive trees and lush pomegranate trees laden with treats.

When you rent a boat in Split, you can either fly directly into Split Airport or Zagreb and then take a regional flight to Split. You can get direct flights to Split from many European cities, however, for North American travelers, it is recommended to fly into a larger airport, like Zagreb. The national carrier, Croatia Airlines, offers several domestic flights daily.
You can also access Split by train, bus, or car. If going by bus, you can book through Arriva. For travel by train, book online with Interrail/Eurorail. If you are flying, Yacht4Less can arrange your airport transfers.
Transfer time from Split Airport: 10-25 minutes depending on the start point marina of the rented boat
Split sailing is best between May and October. During summer you can enjoy an average temperature hovering around 25 degrees Celsius. The sea will be a balmy 22 degrees, which is perfect for swimming and other water activities.
If you’re interested in escaping the crowds, you might consider booking in April/May as the weather will still be quite pleasant, but the tourist season is not yet in full swing. The average temperatures in April are around 13-23 degrees Celsius. The water is not as warm as summer yet, but it’s still nice enough to spend your days outside soaking up some rays.
For sailing conditions, you will find mostly light winds, that get slightly stronger in the afternoon (up to 15 knots) and offer great sailing! By the evenings, the wind starts dropping off again. This helps charterers moor up easily, so you can rest easy and settle in for the night in comfort. Dominant winds in Croatia include The Bora (NE), The Sirocco (ESE to SSE), and the Maestral.
For your yacht charter in Split, if you’re doing a bareboat charter, you will have to have a valid sailing license and VHF/radio license. Check with your Yacht4Less charter consultant for a list of sailing licenses officially accepted in Croatia.
