    Boating Guide - Dubrovnik

    What to know about renting a boat in Dubrovnik, Croatia

    The enchanting blue Adriatic is all the inspiration you need to plunge into while in Croatia. Your Dubrovnik experience will be incomplete if you don’t take a boat ride, which happens to be one of the most popular modes of getting around. Hop into a kayak and paddle around for a visual treat. The white walls will mesmerize you as you take a trip around the city in a boat. Take a short ferry-ride from Old Town Port to Lokrum to watch peacocks and rabbits running wild. Include a yacht trip to the Elaphiti Islands in your itinerary. Hire a yacht and give in to the adventure of exploring little-known coves and sandy beaches.

    When it comes to boating rentals, you have a lot of options at Dubrovnik. Take your pick from sailing boats, motor vessels, yachts, and speedboats. You may rent a boat for half a day especially if you want to explore the small nearby islands. Hire a boat with or without a skipper, depending on your boating skills and background. While a skipper can guide you to the best spots according to your preference, navigating the waters all by yourself is an adventure in itself.

    A popular and easy option to enjoy Dubrovnik by boat is to embark on a day cruise to nearby islands. For a reasonable price, you'll be sailing with other travelers to the small islands off the mainland coast. Enjoy a full meal and bar while cruising through the Adriatic.

    Dubrovnik has always enjoyed popularity among travel enthusiasts. Even stars like Beyoncé and Sir Roger Moore could not stay away from the allure of this city. In 2013, over one million visitors arrived by cruise ship.

    Beaches in Dubrovnik

    Pristine sandy beaches lapped by deep blue waters is not a rare sight in Dubrovnik. Summon your inner sailor and anchor on a quiet beach. Away from the crowds, you can enjoy all the serenity while soaking in the bright sunshine. Do visit the Lapad beaches, several pebble beaches that are about 2 miles away from Old Town. There is also a coast path with ladders leading you to the sea. The place is perfect for one or two sunbathers. Banje Beach is another beautiful beach that’s close to the Old Town. There are two ways to enter the beach—one public and one with an entrance fee. Add fun to your day by engaging in beach volleyball, water polo, or mini football on the beach. You could also get a deck chair, sip your favorite drink and enjoy the amazing view of the islands of Lokrum and Old Town Dubrovnik.

    Another beautiful place to escape from the summer crowd is the Lokrum Island. A ferry from the Old Town port will take you to this haven of peace. There is a boat that leaves for the Island every half an hour, so getting one is very easy. Once on the island, you can dive into the sea for a nice swim. Look for indicated swimming zones. There is also an FKK (free body culture) beach at the southern end of the island. Climbing up a fort at the island’s northern part will offer a beautiful view of the city.

    Boating Events in Dubrovnik

    Like the rest of Croatia, the city of Dubrovnik has its festivals and city-wide events. There is one specific annual boating event that you wouldn’t want to miss if you are a boating enthusiast. Known as Maraton Ladja, it is a race in which a type of traditional boat known as ladjas competes against each other on a 14-mile part of the Neretva River. The participants usually come from the local villages and towns.

    Other events in Dubrovnik

    The old-world charm of this city is something that you need to explore on foot. Walk through the narrow lanes, patrol the City Walls, drop into the Dubrovnik Cathedral, and have a tête-à-tête with the city’s history at the Dubrovnik Museum. You should also ride the cable car that offers one of the most memorable views of the city and its surrounding areas.

    Marinas around Dubrovnik

    Uvala Mandalijena, Dubrovnik Harbour, and Dubrovnik U Batala Marina are some of the popular marinas in the city. The ACI Marina offers hundreds of berths with many boats to choose. Hang out at the ACI Marina’s supermarket or pop into the souvenir shop for a memento. Treat your taste buds at the two restaurants here, and relax at the swimming pool. An option for luxury yachts a bit south of the main city walls is Porto Montenegro, highly regarded for its host of gorgeous boats and beautiful views.

    About Dubrovnik

    If you're a Game of Thrones fan, you've gotten a glimpse of the magical city of Dubrovnik. The beauty of this walled city in Croatia on the Adriatic coast, however, deserves more than an Emmy Award. Known as the "Pearl of the Adriatic" it's no wonder why Dubrovnik is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

    Dubrovnik is an ancient city that has seduced travelers since time began. Formed by limestone streets that weave by baroque buildings, monasteries, museums, and forts, it's a place to wander. The sparkling blue Adriatic sea shapes the walls of the city. Even today, boats remain one of the primary modes of transportation to Dubrovnik.

    Summers in Dubrovnik are hot and dry. The warm days are often interrupted by rainfall that the Bora winds bring. In Spring and Fall, the weather is still warm enough with sunshine to work on your tan. Winters are mild but will be too cold to enjoy time on a boat during the coldest days. Summers usually see a surge in tourists. The influx of visitors to Dubrovnik causes spikes in prices, and booking in advance is essential. September and October are the best two months to explore the beauty and richness that Dubrovnik has to offer. The weather is still warm, the sky is clear, and the azure sea as inviting as ever.

    Dubrovnik is a seaport; much of its heritage is based on flourishing maritime trade. Many believe that the Greek sailors established this town as a station between two of the Greek settlements named Budva and Korčula.

      Charter 35' Jeanneau Prestige Motor Yacht In Komolac, Croatia

      The boat was the highlight of our trip. We absolutely loved the route. Dragan and his partner were very professional, communication was easy and quick. We were quite a loud group of people, but they both were so good to us. Amazing!

      Had a fantastic day on Antuns boat - most importantly for me everything was easy to do, the boat was in great condition and we didn't have any problems. Antun gave us a few places to check out and we couldn't have asked for a better day out. Thanks
