The Dalmatian Islands in Croatia are among the most famous in the Mediterranean region. Wild, rugged, and mostly uninhabited, many are protected as national parkland and offer a varied and diverse cruising ground for an Agana yacht charter holiday. The cruising is splendid, encompassing long and short passages to charming anchorages amid rocky islets, ancient villages steeped in history, and translucent waters. 

An Agana yacht charter typically focuses on the more than 30 islands off the central Dalmatian Coast near the city of Split, including lovely Solta, Hvar, Vis, and Brac. The Kornati National Park lies to the north, with a mostly barren landscape. So many small and large islands are in the park that it has been likened to a maze of unparalleled natural beauty. Pristine beaches, lively nightlife, fine cuisine, secluded coves, fascinating historic sites, and an unspoilt natural setting make an Agana yacht charter an unforgettable adventure on the water.

Cruising in Agana

An Agana cruising holiday can include long or short passages among the beautiful Dalmatian Islands. There’s always ample time to go ashore to explore ancient towns, savour the local cuisine, or simply stroll around to see the sights. In May and June, the waters are exceptionally inviting, with balmy and fair westerly winds of about 15 knots, creating a very family friendly setting for an Agana yacht charter. In July and August, the wind drops off even more, promising calm weather most of the time. The prime season runs from April through November, though in the autumn a strong northerly wind called the bora is possible. The tidal range is insignificant, about two feet at the maximum. Captains with basic coastal navigation skills will find an Agana yacht charter accessible and stress-free. During the cruising season the average daytime temperature is 22°C.

Agana Highlights

An Agana yacht charter features a wonderful blend of the historic and the natural, with ancient cities and towns situated in beautiful harbours fronting islands with sandy beaches and lush vegetation. Serene anchorages far from the crowds or bustling towns with boutiques, restaurants, and bars are all attractions of the central Dalmatian Coast, where wildlife abounds, the snorkelling is excellent, and history is ever present. An Agana cruising holiday is a voyage into some of the prettiest offshore channels in the Mediterranean region, a sojourn to remember on the Adriatic Sea.
