Licensing required for bareboat Power Cat charter in Croatia

I have a group that is planning a Bareboat Power cat Charter through the Moorings next July.

Trying to find out what licensing accreditations the skipper of each boat will need.

In checking different sources I am getting mixed information.

Can anyone give insight on the minimum requirements and where I can get the proper training and certificate?

Thanks,
Searay

You need an ICC and VHF license. The are strict in Croatia. BTDT.

The International Proficiency Certification (IPC) from ASA will also work. The requirement for that is to have you ASA 104 - Bareboat Cruising Certification.

I've wondered which is more recognized....ICC vs IPC.

We went for the ICC thru IYT even though we have our ASA 104. Not sure it makes a difference.

In my experience they are equally recognized. We just went to charter in Greece and had no problems with the IPC. I have not heard of anyone having problems with the IPC being accepted - though I would be curious if anyone else has?

What about a USCG Captain's/Master's license?

You would think that that would be enough, wouldn't you?

However, it doesn't seem to be on the official list of accepted qualification:

Strange but true. The thing is, you might get by with a USCG captains licence - but I wouldn't bet my charter vacation on it.

Also remember, there is no on the water training involved in getting your USCG OUPV or 100 Ton Masters License. So, the ICC / IPC is in some ways more of a valid endorsement.
