An Agana cruising itinerary takes you to the stunningly beautiful turquoise waters of Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast, its shoreline indented with coves and bays, marked with rugged peninsulas, and bejeweled with large and small islands just offshore (see Agana maps). A typical 7-day Agana itinerary centers on cruising to the islands of Šolta, Hvar, Vis, and Brač, and to the Kornati Islands National Park north of the port of Split. These islands have a wonderful variety of harbors ranging from traditional fishing villages where the pace of life is slow to ports with small cities full of history and charm. The uninhabited islets nearby are remote and dramatic, supporting abundant wildlife. Swimming, snorkeling, and sunbathing at pristine beaches, exploring fascinating archaeological sites, browsing in market bazaars, and dining in restaurants serving delicious local cuisine are among the many pleasures of chartering in these family friendly waters.

Discovering the best in Croatian waters if arriving for the first time is much easier with local recommendations. That is why we are inviting you to The Moorings Croatia Rendezvous - sail in the best time of year accompanied by a team of locals: a skipper, a tachnitian and a hostess, following a carefully chosen itinerary to make sure you get the best Croatian experience there is. Find more details here.

Overnight Options

There are a number of different mooring options in Croatia: Marinas, Town Quays or Harbors, Mooring Buoys and Anchorages.

Anchoring is possible almost everywhere, but please don’t do it if you notice UPSIDEDOWN ANCHOR- meaning no anchorage allowed. If you anchor closer than 300m from buoys or harbours under concession, you will be charged the same fee.
Mooring buoys are either owned by a restaurant- in which case you are expected to dine with them (just call ahead and make dinner reservations in order to book a buoy), or they are under concession- meaning you have to pay for your stay (usually around 200 - 300 Kn for a mono hull yacht).
Town quays or harbours are NOT the same thing as a marina- they are cheaper, not reservable, cash-only facilities and they DO NOT use VHF 17 for contact upon approach. Some have their own frequency, but most of them operate on line of sight and on first comes - first served basis. Like marinas, most of them have water, electricity and shower facilities, but are much more affordable in price (400 - 500 Kuna for a 40-foot monohull).

Most wide-spread brand of marinas in Croatia is the Adriatic Club International (ACI). Their prices, locations and procedures are to be found on aci-marinas.com. For web pages of other marinas found along the coast and their prices you can consult the base staff or the eGuide. All of the marinas in Croatia respond to VHF ch. 17 for communication upon arrival.
All mooring fees are dependent on the size of your yacht and the marina/quay pricing policy, and for catamarans the prices are always +50 or 80%of the listed price.

Dinghy Docks

There are rarely specialy-appointed docks along Croatian coast that are referred to as "dinghy docks". However, it is very easy to get with your dinghy wherever you need, just make sure you don't lose it along the way. Dinghies can be pulled up the beach and left there for a while. Make sure you don't damage the outboard engine while doing so and that the tide (although small) doesn't drag it away. There is also ample space for the small dinghy along the town quays and harbors, just make sure you are not in somebody's spot or in the way of the ferry or a larger boat. Best is just to squeeze between local boats, taking care of other people's property. Ensure you have tied it to the best of your ability so you find it where you left it. General rule is not to take your dinghy further than 300 meters away from your yacht.

Day 1

Šešula bay, Šolta

Šešula sailing brings you into the heart of the central Dalmatian Islands just to the south of the busy port of Split on the mainland. This small bay on the isle of Solta is known for its beauty and quiet ambience, its olive groves and, due to many underwaret streams, refreshing waters. Šešula bay is just a short crisp walk away from Maslinica town, where you can reveal the Dalmatian traditional architecture.
