Re: Adriatic - Zadar to Split, Brac, Hvar - End of April, 2011

I've already posted the link to the list of authorized anchorages but here is it again:

Click on the link "NAUTIČKA SIDRIŠTA"

http://www.mmpi.hr/default.aspx?ID=474



The first column is geographical name of anchorage (the word "otok" means island in croatian), the second column is the name of concession company, the third column is the representative person, the fourth is the teritory in concession (in m2), the fifth is the service on anchorage, the sixth is the number of buoys and the seventh is the maximum cost (some values are segmented by the length of boat). After that you also have to GPS coordinates.

Those are for mooring buoys? Or just to anchor out? A charge for just anchoring out in just any old anchorage is a really asinine idea which will do much to discourage cruising in Croatia, just by the very idea of it. A euro per meter for a mooring buoy is kind of ok if the equipment is decent.

Re: Adriatic - Zadar to Split, Brac, Hvar - End of April, 2011

We have spent the last two spring / summer vacations (May & June) bareboat chartering out of Marina Kastela near Split. It is paradise. Friendly people, easy to get to, not too expensive, moorings when you need them, and plenty of sheltered coves to drop the hook.
On the down side:
Marinas are not cheap
The Bora (mentioned previously) is pretty vicious. We recorded 40 knots on our first night in Marina Kastela. Thankfully having arrived late we had not tried to set sail that night.
Tips:
Visit the busiest anchorages/towns (Hvar) on a Saturday when all the charter boats are changing over
May, June is not too warm
Highlights:
Vis is our favourite place the town is beautiful and relatively unspoiled
Any number of coves to anchor in throughout the islands.
Dolphin and tuna in abundance
Conclusion: The Croatia coast is a paradise, can't wait to get back.

One is obligated to pay a moorig fee only if mooring in areas specified on that site pjosim mentioned. If you ara using buoys, you pay a full price, but if you are on your own anchor, you pay a half of thet price.

On Sidrista - vragec32 you can download gdb or gpx file with all ares whit buoys and some company has a concession for charging.

Hi All,

If you are seriously considering going to Croatia then go get that 777 Guide. It is not a glossy publication and I believe updated each year. It should give you accurate and current facts.

For those who've not been there, in summary you need (1) a cruising permit (purchased on entry or by a charter company for you) and relatively expensive (2007 cost for 46 footer was circa 200 euros), (2) if you choose to anchor in a National Park area expect a further 80 or so euros per boat (the charge per person was scrapped in 2006), (3) a fee of some kind if you pick up a buoy.

No charge to anchor outside the parks (which means 95% of the region is open), freebie mooring to any restaurant jetty (if you wish to eat at their place).

Unless it has changed dramatically since 2007, we found marinas (even in July / August) nowhere near as expensive as Spain / UK / S.France.

As most others have said - its one of the best cruising grounds we've visited anywhere - a 'must sail' bit of coast.

Enjoy
JOHN
