Boat courses

Boat courses

According to Croatian law, at least one person on the vessel must possess valid Navigational and VHF licences. If you want to charter a vessel but don’t want to hire a skipper, then you must have valid licences in addition to sailing experience.

Navigational and VHF licences in Croatia are issued by Port Authorities. To obtain a skipper’s license A or B categorie, one can take classes at our facility (theoretical part) as preparation for the exam.  The practical elements you can also learn from one of our experienced skippers on one of our boats for rent.

 

THE PRACTICAL PART is being organised usually after the theoretical part, where the most important things for boating are being shown:

1.) How to drive a boat correctly

2.) How to park a boat

3.) How to dock a boat properly

4.) What you need to know about the markers on the water

1-3 practical appointments are advised.

Under 1 practical appointment it is understood a period of 24 hours, where a skipper is accompanying you for 2 hrs and showing the 4 points mentioned above.
