Mediterranean cruise advice needed

I'm looking for some info for a yacht cruise from Croatia to Greece.
Where to perform customs check outs and check ins, the neccessary paperwork needed for Croatia, Montenegro, Albania & Greece.

Help please!

If you are not a local you'll need a Croatian Cruising permit for starters.

It lists who is on the crew, the cost is variable on size of boat (used to be variable on number of bodies). Cost us around E200 last year for a 46 footer for two.

Check out from Croatia, I suggest Dubrovnik is best if heading south.

The Authorty building just across road from dock. Park up behind the cruise liners and walk over.

Regret can't give personal advice on Montenegro or Albania - but all others we met last year strongly suggested Albania should be sailed past........

I also hear the Montenegran fiords are great - but again we skipped past due to timing issues. In Albania thay have difficulty handling the concept of a private yacht - so I hear you are treated like a 'ship'- neccesitating agents, extensive paperwork, and relatively high costs.

You can clear into any Greek port of entry. These ports are listed in all the pilot books. If coming down from Croatia it is likely Corfu will be the first major port you hit. You there also need to get a cruising permit on arrival - basically same deal as Croatia but lots cheaper.

Officially you are meant to report to each Greek harbour / police authority and get this permit stamped as you pay harbour dues etc - but few do this.

We tended to ignore the harbour authorities until they came to us - then we simply apologised and did whatever they said.

Easy really - go look at our blog for mid last year - lots of pictures of places visited in both countries.

Don't take life too seriously. No ones going to make it out alive......Go see our blog at

Big thanks for the reply and the good information!

Some details about the Montenegro and Albanian check ins and outs and the required paperwork would still be appreciated.
