All about Motorboat Rentals in Croatia
Cruising the Adriatic Sea on your motorboat rental in Croatia is the ultimate way to discover this glorious Eastern European country and its hundreds of islands (over one thousand in fact). Spend your days soaking up the sun while you bathe in crystal clear water and your evenings with a glass of rakija on board your motorboat as you watch the sunset. With so much to explore, making your motorboat your hotel room is luxurious, yet convenient, and oh-so-wonderful.

Climate and Sailing Conditions in Croatia
Summer temperatures generally average 25°C to 30°C making the high season the ultimate sailing season. Although the sailing season starts earlier and finishes in autumn. Of course, if you prefer to sail in cooler temperatures, you can sail at any time of year. We simply advise that whatever time of year, you always check the weather forecast and sea conditions online or with your harbour before departure.
Itinerary Ideas for Croatia
Here at Nautal we understand that everyone’s idea of the perfect day is different, so allow us to give you a few pointers on some of our favourite Croatian destinations.
If you enjoy partying the night away and nursing your hangover in island paradise, Split is the one for you. During the day, this timeworn city displays ancient ruins throughout, whereas by night, bars and clubs open bringing the party to life. There are many islands close by, including the party island of Hvar, and even a famous blue cave on the nearby island of Bisevo.
Šibenik is surrounded by olive tree plantations which cultivate high-quality olive oil and vineyards which produce the finest Croatian wines, definitely worth a try if you choose to rent your motorboat in this historic coastal city. Visit St. James’ Cathedral and St. Michael’s Fortress where you can explore 14th century and medieval architecture. If you are looking for a paramount picture for your instagram, the fortress has 360 degree views featuring the Kornati islands.
Its old town, cosy cafes and swanky bars are impressive, but above all, Zadar’s solar panel powered dance floor and sea organ are probably its most incredible attractions. Relax by the sea as you listen to the sound of whale song created by the waves.
Travel Tips for Croatia
Croatia has three main airports (Split (SPU), Dubrovnik (DBV), and Croatia’s inland capital, Zagreb (ZAG)). There are smaller more local airports which operate regional flights as well.
If sailing in Istria or Kvarner Bay, check Pula Airport (PUY) and Rijeka Airport (RJK) for direct flights with Europe.
Bus is a more frequent form of public transport, as not all cities have train stations.
