ur charter base is situated in Marina Dalmacija, Bibinje-Sukošan, near Zadar, in the heart of Dalmatia, which is an ideal starting point for visiting Croatia's most interesting national parks like Kornati Islands and the Krka River with its stunning waterfalls.
Croatia is a nautical country with an old tradition. Along the beautiful Adriatic Sea we have a lot of small towns, more then 1.200 islands and islets, and almost 6.000 km of coastal line. Along the Croatian Adriatic coast there are many marinas which offer a chance for people to keep their boat in a safe place from the strong winds of the Adriatic. Majority of Marinas in Croatia are used for boats own by local sailors and in most cases also for charter fleets from various companies. From the point of view of a yacht charter company, the facilities and the position of the marina is of course very important in relation to choosing your companies charter base.
Not far from Kornati Islands there is a large cove in the extereme south of the island Dugi Otok the nature park of Telaščica. It is one of the best-protected coves on the Adriatic Sea, where you can enjoy a safe yachting experience as well as top-quality fish food and domestic wines.
For those who would like to feel some urban experience there are sites like Zadar, wall-encircled antique town; Cathedral in Šibenik, Romanesque town of Trogir or Diocletian's palace in Split, all of them part of UNESCO Heritage.
For a genuine holiday adventure and a visit to the most interesting nautical destinations, you don't need a long route, as all the sights worth seeing are located in our neighbourhood.
Marina Dlamacija is ideally connected with both Croatia's major airports: those of Zagreb and Split. A new and modern higway makes the access quick and pleasnat, either within 2 hours from the Zagreb airport or only 45 minutes from the Split airport.
If you happen to travel by car from a destination in the Central Europe, the highway will be a real blessing for you!
A smaller, but still well-functioning and rather charming Zadar airport, wich is only 12 km away from the marina, has recently got a direct low-coast flights to & from London through the Ryanair company.
Flights from Köln, Hamburg, Leipzig and Dusseldorf are available through the German Wings.
10 good practices for good behavior in port
There is no law for good behavior in a port. Good behavior is often all that is needed to find the right attitude. But if you apply the following 10 tips, you'll be able to boast of being a perfect seafaring gentleman.
- Don't yell on the pontoons or purlins. Don't yell from boat to boat. Neighbors don't need to know your intentions.
- If occupied, do not board a boat without first requesting permission or being invited.
- In the case of a side-by-side mooring, you pass on board the neighboring boat by passing in front of the mast on a sailboat, or by the bow on a motorboat. You should never cross the cockpit, which should be considered a private area.
- If you have to pass through a neighboring boat to get to yours, take off your shoes to avoid dirtying the deck and walk with as little noise as possible. Think that maybe your neighbor is sleeping below.
- Don't use your neighbors or harbor employees as your mates. Even if they can help you with the maneuver, plan to do it alone.
- Do not overflow your boat by pushing on the neighbor's lines or stanchions. To overtake, push with your foot at deck level.
- Do not unplug an electrical outlet or water jet without asking permission.
- Tie your halyards correctly so that they do not hit the mast with the wind.
- When travelling in a dinghy, sail slowly and not too close to your neighbors so as not to disturb them with your engine noise.
- As at home, practice the selective sorting of waste and of course, land them cleanly.
