The Dubrovnik flotilla offers a charming mix of Croatian islands and mainland harbours and now also includes a brand new Montenegro route capturing the breathtaking fjord of Kotor.

The Dubrovnik flotilla has been increasingly popular since its appearance in 2016. Start and finish your flotilla sailing holiday at the world famous city of Dubrovnik. Our base in the marina is situated at the end of the Rijeka (“river”) Dubrovačka inlet, very well protected and a great place from which to start your flotilla holiday in Croatia. If you arrive early, why not take a trip into the UNESCO World Heritage old town, which dates back to the 7th century.

One week the flotilla sails north to the islands of Mljet, Lastovo and Korcula, all offering some fantastic harbours and anchorages. The next week the flotilla will sail south into the stunning fjord of Kotor in Montenegro. Choose which route you prefer or why not have the best of both and book a fabulous two week flotilla!

Croatia and Montenegro have ideal conditions for a flotilla sailing holiday with reliable afternoon winds. You can expect reliable sunshine and predictable moderate to fresh winds Force 3-5, mainly in the afternoons. Summer temperatures average 26-30ºC.

"My husband, two children (19 and 20years) and I had a fabulous time on our southern Split flotilla. From booking, to getting our boat and right through the whole holiday, Nautilus were fantastic. The boat was spotless, well kitted out and everything in perfect working order. Helen and Harley took us to fantastic places, were very knowledgeable about the area and the people, organised great social events, booked restaurants for us and were there for us to deal with any problems. I would recommend Nautilus to everyone, we have been on a few flotilla holidays and this is by far the best. "

Sailing Qualifications

To skipper a bareboat charter or flotilla yacht, you need to hold a practical sailing certificate equivalent to RYA Day Skipper Practical qualification or RYA International Certificate of Competence (ICC). For charters in Greece, you must now have the ICC certificate. You must also be assisted by at least one competent crew member over the age of 18.

The port authorities in Greece are now insisting on one of the following practical certificates: RYA ICC (International Certificate of Competence), RYA Coastal, RYA Yachtmaster, ASA IPC (International Proficiency Certificate) or the IYT (International Yacht Training) Passport. If you hold an RYA Day Skipper or ASA104 it will no longer be accepted and you need to obtain either an ICC or IPC from the corresponding issuing body (RYA or ASA). If your RYA Coastal/Yachtmaster or ASA105/106 certificate is more than 12 years old and does not have a photo ID, then we would also strongly advise applying for an ICC or IPC. If you are a member of the RYA or ASA, you may qualify for a discount or free certificate, otherwise, you will have to pay. The approximate cost is £50. Please use this link - RYA application for the ICC or ASA application for the IPC.

For charters in Croatia, Malta and the Canaries, at least one member of the crew or the skipper will also need a VHF licence.

RYA qualifications can be obtained by RYA sailing schools in the UK or alternatively choose from one of our overseas centres in Gibraltar, Greece or Turkey.

For Seychelles, the local authorities require an ICC for the skipper of a bareboat or flotilla yacht charter.

For Caribbean and Tropical charters, formal qualifications are not compulsory, however, you should be Day Skipper standard and be assisted by at least one competent crew. A brief sailing resume should be provided to outline your experience.

If you don't hold the relevant qualifications then why not add a skipper?
