Split, Croatia

Croatia has been a favoured destination for yacht charters for some time now, and understandably so. We specifically have fallen in love with the area around Split, a port city in the central part of Croatia. Split caught our attention due to the crystal clear waters of the Adriatic Sea, combined with the possibility of visiting the small magnificent islands of Hvar, Brac and Vis, which are all worth a visit! These three are just to name a couple because the sea along the Croatian Coast is sprinkled with around 1000 small beautiful islands. Some of the most popular islands for visiting yacht charters are around the Dalmations islands located near Split. The islands vary a lot in size, shape and possibilities when on land. There is a lot of history related to these islands as they were the outposts in ancient time, which is why some of the islands have historic castles and fortresses on the hills. Outside of these fortifications, you will find small and old cities that offer a wide variety of local specialities and excellent restaurants with a view of the sea. Other islands are still wild and untouched as they are uninhabited. These islands and waters are part of the Croatian history and culture which makes them somewhat sacred to the locals, and they are therefore protected as national parks. So when you sail through the passages in between the islands, you are travelling through ancient history with a view of the clearest waters, rocky islets and ancient villages.

We recommend yacht charters to not only explore Split and the surrounding sea and islands but also to make the trip to the two neighbouring cities of Primosten and Trogir. As a nice additional convenience, the airport in Split is very close to the marina, which makes the transfer between the two very easy.

The high season runs from April to November, however, there are different sub-seasons within. In May and June, you will under normal circumstances experience a calm and pleasant wind of around 15 knots from the west. This makes this area ideal for yacht charters for families. If you like the waters even calmer, July and August usually have less wind than in May and June. Furthermore, the average daily temperature is a comfortable 23°C. Take a closer look at the wind and weather reports for the area.

So in short, a yacht charter to central Croatia and Split offers a magnificent mix of wonders from the beautiful scenery, pristine beaches, cosy islands and cultural experiences in the ancient towns and ports. Also, the wildlife in the area is worth noting, both on land and underwater, as there are some amazing snorkelling opportunities.

Our top reasons for visiting Split on a yacht charter

  • Easy and gentle navigation at sea
  • Kornati National Park
  • The city of Split, which is a UNESCO world heritage city
  • The three beautiful islands of Hvar, Brač, and Vis
  • A wide variety of easily accessible bays
  • The ancient and culturally rich Trogir
 

Athens, Greece

In Greece, there is a long and proud tradition for sailing which can be traced back to ancient Greece, and you will immediately understand this when you start to explore the waters of The Saronic Gulf and Cyclades. Because of the sheer beauty of the area, you will understand why the Greeks have always been drawn to the sea for these superb views and waters.
This is a great destination if you are looking for a yacht charter with perfect conditions for sailing, with pristine landscapes draped in ancient history and culture as you sail past the historical cities along the coast, old ruins from a time long ago and remote islands. But it's not just all culture and old towns as the port cities of Greece offer pulsating life, a warm and welcoming atmosphere, and amazing cuisine. 

The two main cities of the Saronic Gulf are Athens and Lavrion which offer the perfect point of departure for a yacht charter, as the airport is close by and there is a lot to experience in these cities, which are among the oldest of our civilization.
We highly recommend that you sail to the Dodecanese Islands or the Sporades as these islands have everything you could dream of on a yacht charter, plus so much more. 

This extensive sailing area ensures that there are conditions for everyone. For instance, if you prefer a quiet and calm journey, we can recommend a trip in the Saronic Gulf, as the winds here are light and the waters are well-protected and relatively flat-bottomed. If you prefer a bit more wind when sailing past the historic sites and the Aegean Archipelago, the Cyclades are the place to go, as there is a bit more wind but equally beautiful historic sites, modern conveniences and cosy destinations ideal for relaxation. 

Generally, the conditions in the Saronic Gulf is ripe for sailing as the tidal difference is quite small, around 1-2 feet, and the currents are not a concern either. In the sailing season from April to October you can expect blue skies and delightful weather, with an average temperature of between 24-28°C. If you feel like taking a swim in the water, you should not be worried about the temperature as it is around 27°C. It should, however, be noted that the sailing areas are closed from 1st of December to 1st of April.

Our top reasons for going on a yacht charter in The Saronic Gulf and the Cyclades

  • Some of the most picturesque surroundings in all of Greece
  • Calm and historic villages with attractions for everyone
  • Beautiful and welcoming beaches
  • Sailing through the Saronic Gulf between the peninsulas of Attica and Peloponnese
  • Snorkelling, swimming and sunbathing at untouched beaches
  • The Greek islands of Kéa, Hydra, Aegina, Sérifos, Syros, and Kythnos which all have rewarding attractions
 

British Virgin Islands, Caribbean

Yacht chartering in the Caribbean, and especially in the British Virgin Islands, is something everyone should try at least once in their life, as the water, climate, and surroundings here is something very special and will make you think you've arrived in paradise.

What makes a yacht charter special is the protected waters in which there are loads of water activities, the many modern marinas and last but not least, the islands which are full of attractions unmatched anywhere else accessible by sea. All of this combined with the fact that the marinas at the British Virgin Islands are easily connected to the mainland by flight makes the British Virgin Islands the worlds most popular destination for yacht charter.

The British Virgin Islands are a group of more than 25 paradise-like islands and they are located in the turquoise waters of Central Caribbean. Among the most known of the islands are Tortola, Jost Van Dyke, Virgin Gorda and Anegada which offer a lot of opportunities both around the islands but also on land if you feel the need to get land under your feet and have a closer look at the authentic Caribbean atmosphere and culture. 

Another reason to charter a yacht in the Caribbean is the vast opportunities. For example, you can enjoy the most relaxing holiday onboard with a crew, which will make your life in the Caribbean feel like heaven on earth, or you can choose to captain your own boat and be in complete control of when and where you are going. Yet another reason for going on vacation in the Caribbean, is the white sandy beaches, the colourful reefs, and the perfect water. In short, if you are going on a yacht charter in the British Virgin Islands, only your imagination can limit the opportunities available as there is something to suit everyone and every need.

Even though the British Virgin Islands are located on the outskirts of the Caribbean Sea, the conditions for sailing is optimal, as you will experience a unique combination of trade winds, minimal currents, and protected waters. In addition to this, there is next to none unmarked hazards, great navigational aids and never far to the next anchorage or protected strait were you, without any concerns, can drop anchor or pick up a buoy. All of this makes the British Virgin Island ideal for inexperienced sailors.

Our top reasons for going on a yacht charter in The British Virgin Islands

  • The mountainous islands that are remnants of extinct volcanoes, which makes the islands so fertile
  • Majestic rock formations and flooded caves
  • The beauty of the coral reefs
  • The optimal conditions for yacht chartering for everyone
  • The possibility of getting the best of both worlds, from both the sea and on land on the islands
  • The wide variety of activities

Nature has been generous with a mild climate, which is ideal for sailing 9 months of the year (March to November). From the Cyclades Islands, where the wind suddenly changes direction and strength for the joy of yachters who wants a challenge, to the Ionian Islands where stable and calm wind-conditions usually give an easier and more relaxed sail. In Greece, you will find truly cosmopolitan islands, such as Paros, Mykonos, Corfu, Rhodos, Santorini and Hydra. If you prefer the unspoiled and peaceful anchorages or smaller harbours; you can sail to the eastern Peloponnese, Síkinos, Milos, Simi, Nisiros among many others. Sailing areas: Athens | Corfu | Lefkas | Skiathos | Rhodos | Kos | The Cyclades A yacht charter to Greece is the adventure of a lifetime. Here you can sail past antique ruins, moor at picturesque villages, drop anchor at remote bays and swim at beach resorts. These are some of the many joys of Greece. With a large number of bases in Greece, the choice of destinations is great and includes the Cyclades, the Dodecanese, the Sporades and the Ionian Islands.

Below you will find practical advice and general information about sailing holidays

Travel insurance

Remember that it's possible to take out travel insurance through Seatravel. Please be aware that you are not covered by public health insurance when travelling to countries like Turkey or other countries outside the EU. Your return travel is never covered by public health insurance.

It is also possible to take out cancellation insurance through Seatravel - it covers in case of accidents, illness, divorce, etc. before your trip and the affected traveller will be able to get his/her share of the cost covered.

The boat's insurance does not cover deliberate damage or carelessness, and the persons on board, personal property and liability are also not covered by the insurance. We, therefore, offer a separate vacation/travel insurance, as well as cancellation insurance which covers in case of sickness before the start of the holiday.

Contact us for insurance terms and conditions.

Which sailing certificates do you need?

For a sailing holiday, it is required that the skipper has a certificate of proficiency in navigation, as a minimum, as well as some sailing experience. 

Co-skipper must also have some sailing experience.

Well in advance before the sailing holiday, you will need to send us a copy of your sailing certificates, a description of your sailing experience, a crew list and a copy of your and your co-skippers passports. We will then send these documents to the base, who will issue a special certificate for you, the hired boat and week. Sending the documents to the base well in advance reduces the risk of unnecessary waiting time before your charter. For yacht charters in Croatia, it is also required that one person on board holds a VHF-radio certificate or the new SRC certificate. If you do not have the necessary sailing certificates or experience or maybe feel a little insecure at the prospect of sailing in foreign waters, it is possible to hire a skipper to sail for you.

Luggage

Pack light and sporty - preferably in soft bags. Although the boats are spacious and well designed, it is difficult to stow away suitcases on a boat.

You cannot expect the charter company to store your luggage if you arrive early.

Remember to bring along

  • Passports, social security card, driver's license and car insurance (if you are driving to the base) and travel insurance. And of course your sailing certificates.
  • Basic medical supplies and remedies, sunblock or high factor sun cream
  • Shoes with rubber soles, lightweight rain gear and a warm sweater
  • Mobile phone. Check the settings for roaming, so you will not come home to a huge phone bill
  • 1 large bath towel per person
  • Work gloves for anchor work
  • Do not bring inflatable vests. They will most likely be seized before the flight
  • Swimming shoes. It's not nice to accidentally step on a sea urchin with bare feet

Arrival, instruction on arrival, etc.

Upon arrival, you must present yourselves at the base office where the final paperwork will be handed out and signed. In case of arrival after the base's closing hours, please give notice well in advance. Please indicate your flight number and arrival time on the crew list. This allows the base personnel to leave you a key to the boat so that you can board for the night. Check-in of the boat will then happen the next morning when the base opens. Note, however, that most bases are closed on Sundays, but if they know that you will be arriving after hours on Saturday night, someone will come to meet you on Sunday morning.

Upon arrival, you will be given a good and thorough instruction in good English in the boat's use, etc. by the base personnel. Let the skipper and co-skipper participate in this instruction - you will be given a lot of information, and two people hear and perceive more than just one person, and too many people can cause confusion. The instruction is an important part of the sailing holiday, because not only will the boat's structure and operation be shown and tested, but the instructors will also gladly provide all their tips and advice on anchorages, nice places to visit, swimming and snorkelling sites and much more. Do a thorough review of the boat yourselves - it's easier to fix any deficiencies before starting from the base than it will be if you discover it along the way.

Early takeover

It is often possible to purchase early takeover, e.g. at 13.00-14.00h. Guests who have purchased early takeover will be prioritised. This also means that those who have not purchased early takeover, cannot expect to gain access to the boat earlier than usual. When chartering with a company that does not offer the option of an early takeover, you may contact the company by telephone (the phone number is available through the link to: "About the port of departure" in your order confirmation) around 11:00-11:30 on the day of the takeover. By this time, they will have an idea of when the boat is expected to be ready for takeover. Neither Seatravel nor the charter company can say anything about the possibility of an early takeover of the boat before this time, as the boat must first be returned and handed over by those who chartered the boat the week before.

Bed linen and towels

On the boat, there are bed linen, ordinary towels and tea towels included in the price or comfort package (be sure to check that there is enough for everyone). At some companies, linen and towels are paid for separately.

Safety onboard - Lifejackets

You will find lifejackets onboard but check before departure that there are vests that fit each person. Other sizes are handed out by the base personnel. For small children, we recommend that you bring along your own lifejacket. There are stricter requirements for lifejackets in rental boats. Therefore, you will often find that the lifejackets are very large and clumsy - see picture below:

How to dock in the Mediterranean

You dock with the aft to the quay: letting the anchor go at a suitable distance to the pier and hill the boat in. Other places, you pull a mooring line out of the water and moor - also with the aft to the quay. It requires some practice, but once you've tried it a few times, it will be no problem. Be careful though, if the boat is equipped with a bow thruster, make sure that the loose mooring line does not come into the bow thruster. If necessary, tighten the towline to the dinghy, so its mooring does not get caught in the screw during this manoeuvre.

Check out this video about docking in the Mediterranean, with and without mooring line (lazy line): Click Here

Anchoring

Look for the direction in which the other boats have cast their anchor, and cast it, so it does not cross. Let it go in good time, there is plenty of chain. When you leave the spot, then sail out (Do not drag your boat out by the windlass) and pull the anchor straight up - this minimizes the risk of pulling up another anchor. 

Mooring lines

There may be fixed mooring lines, in which case you should not use your anchor. Read about this in your water pilot. A sign on the dock with an inverted anchor indicates that you must not drop your anchor here.

How to dock in the Caribbean?

In the Caribbean, you generally always dock at a designated buoy. One may proceed fairly close to the coast - although please mind the corals. Many coral reefs along with their fantastic animal and fish life have been destroyed by sailors with a dragging anchor chain! Use buoys, where possible!

Many places there are designated mooring buoys = Nighttime Moorings = you have to pay to dock at these buoys. Some places there are designated buoys = "Day Time Moorings" in different colours that can only be used during the day when anchoring/diving in protected coral areas. In The Virgin Islands, you will get a Day Time Mooring Permit - this is paid in advance as part of the boat rental price.

What is the cost of port charges in the Mediterranean and Caribbean?

In Greece, you pay virtually no harbour fees - max. 5,- € for a week - but expect no facilities such as showers, toilets etc. You will often dock at a tavern or alongside the local fishermen, private yachts and /or smaller ferries that sail between the islands.

In Croatia, they have built 18 completely modern ACI marinas with lots of good facilities and great service - a dinghy from the marina will often greet you as you're approaching and they will help you find a place and with the mooring - They also arrange the paperwork with the harbour master. It is relatively expensive in these marinas - If there are many boats, or if you do not want to pay the expensive port money, it's usually possible to use a mooring buoy located at a distance from the quayside. This is a much cheaper, but not a free option.) For other areas in the Mediterranean, the port charges are somewhat expensive - but the service level at the marinas are generally high.

In the Caribbean, a Night Time Mooring typically costs around $30.

Reserving space at a marina

Croatia: In Croatia, it may also be an advantage to reserve a berth in a harbour in advance. This can be done at e.g. Porthop or www.my-sea.com. Here you can also see the price level of harbour fees.
Greece: First come, first served!
Mallorca: For the public ports (Ports IB). Otherwise, it's first come, first served.
Italy:
Here the practice is to call the harbour office over VHF, as soon as you are within reach, and reserve a berth.
In the Caribbean: At nighttime mooring typically costs around $30 and cannot be reserved in advance.

Power shopping

The base staff can refer you to a nearby supermarket/grocery store. There is usually an agreement with a supermarket for free pickup and transport of goods. Deciding what to purchase is simple - You will need something from every shelf, as the boat is empty.

In Croatia, you can order provisioning directly to the boat via Jam Yachtsupply

In Greece, you can order provisioning directly to the boat via Yachtness

Boat deposit/risk insurance

The indicated deposit is deposited with VISA-/Euro-/MasterCard or in cash. Make certain that the usage limit on your credit card is sufficient for the deposit to be blocked. For security reasons, several credit cards have a maximum spending limit of €2,000-3,000.
This limit can be reached very quickly when you begin with having the deposit covering the excess on the boat blocked. Bring several credit cards and before leaving home for your holiday check that you have enough money for your holiday. The amount is refundable after the return of an undamaged boat at the agreed upon time and place and in a tidy condition. It can take up to three or four weeks before the security deposit is released on your credit card. This is due to the transaction time between the boat rental company, credit card company and your bank.)

Alternatively, with most charter companies you can buy a non-refundable risk insurance that eliminates/reduces the deposit. Boat insurance does not cover intentional damage or negligence. With both types of insurance, the persons on board, their personal property and liability are not covered by the insurance. Before leaving home, you can also take out external charter insurance with Pantaenius Insurance. This insurance must be bought online and covers in case of an accident during the holiday. The insurance that only covers the excess, Pantaenius calls "Bond Insurance Plus" and is found at the bottom of the page – we cannot help in taking it out. It is an external insurance, so when arriving at the base you'll have the excess blocked as usual. If an accident occurs, the insurance you have taken out with Pantaenius will cover any possible damage.
This insurance can be taken out through this link: Pantaenius Bond Insurance

If you sail with a skipper you still must make the deposit - the skipper is responsible for the boat and sailing, and you're not liable for any damages caused by him.

Outlet 12V

On the boats, there are 12 V "cigarette outlets" for recharging video cameras and mobile phones. It's a good idea to bring an inverter that converts 12 V to 220 V, so you can always charge your tablets, camera, mobile. etc.

Refrigeration

We recommend placing an ice pack at the bottom of the refrigerator and turning on the motor a few hours daily, as a minimum, for charging the batteries. Possibly turn off the refrigerator at night. There is much else aboard that requires power. Tip: Place the rack from the oven at the bottom of the fridge so food does not get wet.

Assistance

If problems arise during your sailing holiday, you get a contact number for the base, which you have to call before you even begin to fix something yourself. Staff members will do what they can to remedy the situation either by phone or they come to you. If you find any deficiencies, you must report it to the base immediately – do not "leave" it for the delivery of the boat, as the staff will not have been given the chance to resolve the deficiencies and any subsequent complaints will not be valid.

Waste

There are plenty of waste containers for disposal at the dock in all ports. Tip: Waste can be assembled in black trash bags and stored in the anchor storage compartment.

Toilets, holding tanks and gauges for tanks

Never put paper in the toilet, but collect it in a plastic bag next to the toilet. Most boats are equipped with a holding tank. If the holding tank is not empty when you receive the boat, be sure to open the valve as the first thing when you come out of the harbour. It's a really bad start to the holiday to start with a clogged toilet. Never put paper in the toilet, but gather it in a plastic bag next to the toilet.

Remember to empty the holding tank before returning the boat. Formally, the rules for emptying holding tanks also apply in the Mediterranean, but in practice, they aren't implemented. It's almost impossible to get far enough away from land to be able to comply with the rules.
On many boats, it is therefore normal for the charter company to have blocked the valve to the holding tank in the open position. This is done because the holding tanks and hoses used in modern boats are not made in 100% odour-proof material. This results in a bad smell developing in the lavatories when the boat is around three to five years old. This process will be delayed if the holding tank is not full all the time.
Therefore, it is entirely deliberate that the charter companies make this change on the boats

When a boat is 2-4 years old, it often happens that meters for diesel, water and holding tanks no longer work. Be careful not to run the diesel tank empty even if the meter shows a full tank. Use common sense combined with the knowledge that various tank gauges do not function correctly.

Backing test

In the ports, most boats are docked with the stern to the quay. It may be a bit unfamiliar with this "reverse parking". It's a good idea to do a backing test as the first thing after you have left the base port. Sail forward by 4-5 knots. Put the boat in neutral. Check that the boat is sailing perfectly straight. Hold the wheel and put the engine in reverse. It's very likely that the boat "pulls" to one side. Take note of which side the boat naturally prefers and use it when you have to choose which way you will turn when you need to "park backwards". As with all other parts in sailing, it is an advantage when the boat works with you and not against you in during the manoeuvres.

Towing a dinghy

If you take the dinghy in tow, then pull it close to the hedge, especially in rough weather.

Shower on the stern deck

If the shower on the stern deck does not work, it is usually because the hose is twisted. There is a hatch in the aft bulkhead in the side where the shower sits where the hose can be fixed.

Beware of the skylights

When you go sailing in warmer climates, it is tempting to open the hatches during the voyage to get some cooler air into the cabin. Be careful that especially the genoas do not pull the skylights of when you tack or jibe.

Designated buoys

Many places have designated buoys, which you may stay overnight. Be aware that you will probably be charged for this. Tip: When you choose to moor at a designated buoy, it is very difficult to reach down from the bow to tie on to the mooring. It is much easier to tie to the mooring while sitting on the stern platform.  

General information about checkout & cleaning

You must be ready to leave the boat no later than the agreed upon time. The base will be obliged to charge a fee for each hour that the return of the boat is delayed. The boat must be returned in a neat and cleaned condition. Bed linen must be removed and waste carried ashore, even if you've paid for compulsory final cleaning. Remember to empty the refrigerator and freezer.

Diesel

You will receive the boat with full diesel tanks and it must be returned with refilled tanks unless there is another agreement in place.

Water/showering

Ensure that the water tanks are full before departing from the base harbour. Save water - do not do the dishes under running water. Fill up the water tanks up whenever possible. If the tank is completely emptied, the pump motor will run continuously and thus overheat - Turn off the electric water pump, if this happens. There will only be hot water when the engine has been running for at least 30 minutes. After showering in the toilet room, the water on the floor can be pumped out by activating the pump button on the wall, if it is not pumped out automatically.

Drinking Water

Buy plenty of drinking water and do not drink the water in the boat taps. According to our experience, each person drinks about 1½ litres/day.

Clothing & Equipment

Flippers and snorkel kit provide great opportunities to explore life beneath the surface. Remember a T-shirt. Your back gets sunburned easily during many hours of snorkelling.

Charts

There are good and detailed charts on board - check that all the charts are there for your desired sail area. There are at least GPS in all the boats, and most are also equipped with a chart plotter. However, the chart plotter may be located down in the cabin.

Maritime Safety Markings

Usually, you´ll see a lot fewer markings in the southern waters than we are used to in Northern Europe. It is because it is often much easier to sail here. As a rule, you can sail where there is water and, from bitter experience, the base commander will usually be very careful to point out reefs and islands that you need to be especially careful not to hit. When sailing in the Caribbean, keep in mind that here the IALA system B is often used, entering the ports with the red buoys to starboard. Their mnemonic reads: "Red Right Returning". That means keeping the red buoys to the right when returning to the harbour.

Sailing at night

Night sailing is generally not allowed in charter boats.

Important when flying to the USA - Also applies when making a stopover for voyages in the Caribbean, Tahiti, Tonga etc.

Disclosure requirements for travellers to the USA / via the USA:

From 12th of January 2009, stricter requirements are in place for travellers to the USA under the Visa Waiver Program. No later than 72 hours before departure travellers must provide a range of information via the website: https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov.

It should be emphasized that the submission of this information, as well as the accuracy of this, is the sole responsibility of the traveller. Lack of, or inadequate submission of information, may lead to extensive consequences for the traveller. Seatravel have no liability for the (correct) submission of the information mentioned above, in which case Sunway Seatravel cannot be met with demands that may emerge due to missing or incomplete information. Questions relating to the process of submitting the required information should be directed to the US embassy.

As of October 31st, 2009, all passengers are obligated to independently submit the following personal information to their travel agent or airline company to be able to travel to/via USA (registration of APIS - Advanced Passenger Information System): * Name as it appears on the passport that the traveller will use to apply entry into the United States. * Date of birth, as it appears in the passport.* Gender, as it appears in the passport. * Passport number and expiration date and which country has issued the passport.

It should be emphasized that there are more stringent safety procedures for luggage at entry and stopover in the USA. When you arrive at your first arrival airport in the USA, you often have to pick up your luggage from the baggage carousel and then deliver your luggage at the customs clearance, as they will provide transportation onwards. Many airline companies erroneously inform at check in that baggage is checked through all the way, and that the travellers don't need to pick up their luggage.
