An ideal introduction to the Dalmatian coast, our first bareboat charter included the natural beauty of Croatia’s most important National Parks as well as visits to some of its more beautiful Venetian towns. This cruising area provides a fresh water navigation to thewater falls in Krk National Park then contrasted with a visit to the desolate, moonscaped Kornati Islands. With visits to the towns of Hvar and Vis you experience the Venetian Empire in its prime.

Our first two week bareboat charter in Croatia (August 2002) began in Sukosan and went as far southeast as Vis and Hvar Town. The highlight of the trip was navigating the passage to Skradin to take a ferry to visit the KRK waterfalls. We had

two different crews for the charter. The first week was a mixed crew of American and Italian friends, while the second included Marcello’s brother with his family.

Sukosan (Vis) Insights – We chartered Selivra in Sukosan an enormous marina just outside Zadar. Provisioning was easy in supermarkets near Zadar and we resupplied in Rogoznica, Vis, Hvar, and Zlarin.

Wind was light for most of our trip and we motored more than we would have liked. Anchorages were straight forward with our only problem coming in crowded U. Stupica (Zirje) where we managed to bend our anchor. No problem, Kremik Marina had the facilities to make the repair quickly.
