Do I need a skipper on board my boat charter in Croatia?

A skipper can complete your sailing experience and turn your yacht charter in Croatia into the ultimate adventure. Our skippers will handle the technical aspects while you kick back and take in the sights and sounds of the beautiful Balkans! As the skippers are usually natives of the area, they can bring you to hidden spots that you might not find in the tourist guide.

If you do not wish to book a skipper and are looking for a bareboat charter, the "without a skipper" filter can be applied when browsing the Nautal platform. However, a sailing license or equivalent certification may be required as proof of competency. Our boat owners are available to answer any questions and queries about what it needs before you set sail!

What are you waiting for? With thousands of boats worldwide on our Nautal platform, exploring these magnificent Croatian Islands has never been more accessible!
