Located in the extreme south of Croatia’s Dalmatian coast, Dubrovnik has the perfect blend of rich history and natural beauty. Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the old town is nestled safely between steep cliffs, lush green vegetation, and the beautiful blue Adriatic sea. From this spectacular city, you can travel to many of the surrounding islands, including Split, Lokrum, Mljet, Hvar, Korčula, and Biševo. One thing we can guarantee though, is that you won’t be bored with a catamaran hire in Dubrovnik.
Many things can affect the cost of hiring a catamaran in Dubrovnik. Some of these things include the season, the number of people, how long your trip is and the size of the boat. In general though, catamaran hire in Dubrovnik costs anywhere from around £2473 per week in high season and £1010 per week in low season.
No, in Dubrovnik you can find both bareboat catamaran hires and hire with a skipper. However, if you want to hire a catamaran without a skipper, you must make sure that you have the appropriate boating licence so that your trip isn’t ruined before it’s even begun.
If you are in possession of a boating licence, a bareboat catamaran hire promises to be a memorable trip full of adventure, with the freedom to travel wherever your heart desires. If you don’t have a boating licence, you can still have a fantastic trip though, just with the aid of a professional skipper who will guide the boat to where you want to go, while imparting knowledge only a local would know.
Dubrovnik offers a Mediterranean climate with plenty of sunny days and a water temperature that averages at around 22°C. The conditions for hiring a catamaran are ideal between April and October
Wind conditions in the summertime are ideal for beginners but should not be underestimated as you go further out to sea. Generally, the wind blows in a north-westerly direction, ranging from around 6-23 mph, but sometimes reaching speeds as high as 28 mph.
Dubrovnik’s high season runs typically throughout July and August when there are plenty of summer festivals that you can attend. While it’s true that you will get the best weather in these months, the boat prices will also be higher due to the large numbers of tourists. For this reason, maybe you should go instead in either April to June or September and October, when you will still experience good weather, but there will be fewer tourists and better deals on boats.
