The city of Krk is the center of Croatia and has the perfect mix of an urbanized look and a modern town. The city possesses everything from serene beauty and the perfect weather to its very attractive sites. The most attractive feature of Krk is it being fortified to date. There are a total of four gates that provide access to the town. The city also has a rich historical heritage being almost two thousand years old. Furthermore, the city also has stunning beaches. These beaches are either pebbled or paved, and are definitely worth visiting. The port is considered as a starting point for trips to the other nearby islands as well so you can hire a boat in Krk and enjoy treading the waters. Since the city is at the center of Croatia, you'll have plenty of routes to explore. If you want to spend a longer period sailing, you can head down to Zadar or Sibenik or you can take a quick sailing trip to Pula. You can also create a sailing itinerary and rent a boat in Rovinj to visit the island of Krk. Rent a boat in Istria and discover the secrets this interesting peninsula has.
Being a main destination for yacht charters in Croatia, Krk follows suit for the typical sailing times of the region. The best sailing season falls between April and June and in September and October with milder temperatures. July and August tend to be the busiest months with the highest influx of tourists. Even though it is completely full of people visiting this beautiful city, the waters for swimming are at its perfect point.
If you choose to sail in August, you will fall upon the yearly event for sailors called the Krčka jedra". You will be able to partake in tons of workshops and exhibitions geared towards the nautical world.
The one unique thing about renting a boat in Krk is that both charters and dayboats are very popular. The number of boats available in the area is generally a bit higher than most other destinations due to the beauty of the coast. When chartering a yacht in Krk, you will expect to pay on average 500€ per day for a catamaran and 350€ per day for a sailboat. Depending on the season you would like to sail in, the prices will fluctuate accordingly.
For motorboats, hiring a boat will be a bit different. Depending on your specific needs of your project, you will be able to find one that fits your budget. There are plenty of boats available for water sports or just for exploring the coast and these can start at as low as 150€ per day.
As in much of Croatia, yacht charters are very popular and they should be booked well in advance. If you're planning a charter during the high season, we recommend starting your search as early as October or November to ensure availability. By March, approximately 50% of the fleet will already be booked.
In order to rent a boat in Krk, you will need to provide a license as well as your nautical CV. This CV works as a way to describe your past experience regarding which boats you captained and the waters you previously sailed. If you plan on chartering a yacht, you will need to provide a valid license as well as a VHF certificate. If you do not possess these or you simply don't want to worry about it, you do not need to rent a bareboat. You can rent a boat with a skipper to have the ultimate stress free vacation. One advantage to this is that all skippers know the region very well and can propose hidden spots.
