Croatia Bareboating Insights – Living Aboard

Refrigeration – Ice is virtually impossible to buy anywhere in Croatia. We’ve successfully made ice in some of the marine refrigerators we’ve had for our cruises.

ricciFishing – Technically you need a fishing license in Croatia, though we’ve not ever been lucky catching fish. For those that are “passionati” of sea urchin (itl-ricci) and sea snails (itl -cuccioli), you’ll find them in many anchorages just ready for gathering. It’s prohibited to catch fish in the various marine parks on the Dalmatian coast.

Water & Trash – You can refill the tanks at many small towns on the Islands. Trash deposit is generally available in any inhabited anchorage.

One thought on “Croatia Bareboating Insights – Living Aboard


    Refrigeration – Our boat’s refrigerator ran on 220 volts so it could only run on shore power or while the engine was running. It did a great job cooling food and drink, but, we were unable to make ice which we sometimes are able to do. Sunsail sells ice, but, we were not able to buy it anywhere else on our trip.

    Fishing – We had no luck catching any fish again in Croatia, but, Marcello was able to gather ricci (sea urchin) in almost every anchorage and in many he also gathered a fair number of cuccioli (sea snails). both require special techniques to clean and/or prepare.

    Trash – We were able to drop trash off in almost every anchorage except Vrulje on O. Kornati.

    Note –

    We found the people of Vrulje on O. Kornati to be rather unpleasant, a first time experience in Croatia.
