What's on Board

Moorings Care packages are included on every yacht. These packages contain some of the basics to get you started for your holiday. Additional items are available to be purchased and delivered directly to your yacht. Visit our Provisioning Page to learn more.

Mobile phones 
Check with your service provider for information about cell coverage in this region. There are companies such as Cellular Abroad who offer international phone rentals if you are not a resident of the country. Using your own GSM mobile phone in conjunction with a prepaid SIM card is also very popular and convenient.  Telephone and internet facilities are available in the ACI Marina. 

While most of our newer boats have Bluetooth capability, we cannot guarantee all boats are outfitted with this equipment. For your convenience, we highly recommend you bring an AUX cord so you can listen to music from your mobile devices.

230V AC, 50 HZ, two-pin plugs are standard. All yachts are equipped with power cords, a battery charger and 220V plugs. The piers in the Marina are equipped with 220 V outlets. The inventory includes an adaptor. The piers of the other marinas are generally equipped with 220V outlets.

For more information on what's included on your yacht, please view the full list here for Bareboat Charters or here for Crewed Charters.

What to Bring

Customs & Immigration
Entry, exit, and visa requirements depend on the locations you are departing from and traveling to. You are responsible for having the correct documents so make sure to check with the consulate of the countries you plan to visit before you travel. Visit travel.state.gov for the latest information.

Cruising Licenses
A formal sailing license is mandatory to charter here. Review the power or sail requirements for Croatia while planning your holiday. Please contact our Holiday Planners at 033 0332 1513* if you have any questions.

Luggage & Packing List
Soft-sided luggage or duffel bags are best, as luggage storage space on your yacht may be limited. We have no facilities for holding luggage at the base. Pack lightly and review our suggested packing list for required and necessary items to bring.

  • Pack essential prescription medicine and change of clothing in a carry-on bag*
  • Passport and other travel documentation
  • Tickets and paper confirmations for pre-planned activities
  • Light-colored, light-weight clothing
  • Formal wear for upscale dining establishments
  • Swimwear and cover up
  • Hats and sunglasses
  • Sandals and flip-flops
  • Athletic shoes and hiking boots
  • Travel-sized toiletries and hygiene products
  • Insect repellent and OTC pain relievers/ointments
  • AUX cable for playing music through your device

  • 12V DC to 110V AC power inverter (for boats without generators**)

  • 12V to USB power adapter for charging mobile devices

*We would highly recommend packing prescription medicine and essential clothing (swimsuit, t-shirt and shorts) in your hand luggage as occasionally your luggage may arrive at the base after you do.

**All boats include a 12V DC outlet (a "car" outlet). Boats with generators have 110V outlets in the Caribbean and 220V in the Mediterranean and Exotic locations.

The use of flying drones may be restricted in some areas. For current drone regulations in this destination, please visit http://www.ccaa.hr/english/naslovnica_1/.

The kuna, also written as HRK, is the official currency used in Croatia.  Kuna (HRK; symbol Kn) = 100 Lipa.

Credit Cards
Visa and Master Card are accepted.
American Express accepted at some locations.
The base cannot accept cash.

Please note: This base cannot accept cash, American Express and Diners Club.

Traveler's Checks: To avoid additional exchange rate charges, travellers are advised to take traveler's checks in US Dollars, Pounds Sterling or Euros. There are many small exchange offices in town offering a better exchange rate than the bank. They are open from 8.00 am to 8.00 pm.

Tipping in Croatia is becoming more commonplace, especially in upscale restaurants. In the past, tipping was welcomed but not expected. Today, however, in newer, upscale places, an extra 10% or 15% is considered polite. In informal restaurants in smaller towns and coffee shops, tipping is rare and not expected, but most people leave any coins they receive in change. Croatian waiters work for salaries and benefits by law and do not depend on tips for living wages.

Taxes & Fees
You might incur some costs while on charter such as mooring and docking fees or cruising taxes. We highly recommend bringing enough of the local currency to cover these costs as they are not always payable by USD, debit, and/or credit cards. Please see our Base Notes for additional information.

Security Deposit
A security deposit must be paid at the base by Visa or Master Card and is refundable at the end of your charter subject to there being no loss or damage. To significantly decrease your security deposit, purchase our Yacht Damage Waiver insurance ahead of time.
