Explore the Kornati archipelago off the central Croatian coastline, protected as a National Park with over 100 islands and islets.

In the centre of the Croatia coastline lies the stunning Kornati archipelago, now designated as a National Park because of the natural beauty of the numerous islands and crystal clear blue waters. Start your yacht charter from Biograd or Zadar and explore over 100 islands and islets in the Kornati National Park.

On all the islands the many small coves are ideal for lunchtime anchorages and offer outstanding snorkelling and swimming. The Kornati islands are mostly rocky and there are no permanent settlements on the islands just a few houses, which are inhabited only during the summer months by fishermen and farmers. Dugi, Pasman, Kornat and Zut Otoks are four of the largest islands and all offer safe sheltered harbours for your sailing holiday.

This sailing holiday is ideal for getting away from it all. The crystal clear water makes swimming off your yacht a delight and the protected coves offer a tranquil night on anchor.

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.

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?
