All about RIB hire in Croatia
Seeing as so much of Croatia is surrounded by water (6,000 km of coastline in fact), one of the best ways of exploring this incredible country is by boat. Spend your dream holiday cruising the crystalline clear waters of the Adriatic Coast on your RIB rental in Croatia. The beauty of a RIB (Rigid Inflatable Boat) is that it absorbs the impact of waves and tides much more easily than other boats. Therefore RIBs offer smoother rides, making your journey around heavenly settings even more tranquil.

Climate and Sailing Conditions in Croatia
You can navigate any time of year, though the general sailing season is from approx. April to October. The hottest months with 25°C to 30°C averages are July and August. If you prefer cooler temperatures and fewer crowds, the spring and autumn are brilliant times to go sailing as well. Generally, the wind force is 3 - 4 in a north-westerly direction. If you enjoy sailing hearing the roar of an engine, you might also consider the idea of renting a motorboat in Croatia
and start a high-speed cruise.
Itinerary Ideas for Croatia
Deciding where you want to visit can be difficult, so here are some ideas of things you can do and see in various places.
Kvarner Bay is one of Croatia’s secret gems and a beautiful sailing destination, especially if you get the chance to see dolphins! There is less tourism here in comparison to other major regions of Croatia, making this a great place to discover Croatian culture.
We highly recommend visiting Zadar’s coast where you can perch on the sea organ while you listen to the harmony created by the waves. There is also a dance floor which charges up on solar power during the day and lights up at night.
Šibenik is home to St. James’ Cathedral and St. Michael’s Fortress. Tip: the views from the fortress are sublime! If you’re into island hopping then perfect, as the Kornati islands are situated near by.
There are also many islands off mainland Trogir and Split, including the notorious island of Hvar. The walk up to the fortress is well worth it for the views of multiple islands. Split itself is packed with bars, restaurants and shops among the ancient Venetian ruins that remain.
Travel Tips for Croatia
Croatia’s main airports are its inland capital, Zagreb (ZAG), Split (SPU) and Dubrovnik (DBV). Smaller airports such as Pula (PUY) and Rijeka (RJK) also operate direct flights within Europe.
Buses generally operate a large network across the whole country. Train services are not as common or frequent as many towns don’t have train stations.
