Catamaran Charter Croatia Review Sailing from Split to Dubrovnik this summer on Good Mood, a 2021 Lagoon 46′ with Captain Marko and our family of 5.
Captain and Chef on Good Mood
Our Captain and Chef truly exceeded our expectations, and we couldn’t have asked for better weather.
Captain Marko, a youthful and relaxed captain with a knack for interacting with children (he has two of his own), gave us the impression that he would be fantastic with party guests as well.
Our chef went above and beyond to ensure that every meal was not only delicious for the adults but also catered to the children’s tastes, which we wholeheartedly appreciated.
The Good Mood Lagoon 46 was impeccably clean and in excellent condition throughout our journey.
Croatia Catamaran Insights
Allow me to share some insights and recommendations based on our memorable Catamaran voyage in Croatia.
In the month of August, we were greeted by sparkling waters, with temperatures hovering around a delightful 80 degrees. While we did come across a few sandy beaches, the majority of the coastline featured charming pebble beaches.
Floating in the crystal-clear waters was an effortless and refreshing experience, indicative of a rather high salt content.
Among all the places we visited, the mini-walled city of Korcula left the most lasting impression on us. However, Hvar was our least favorite stop due to its overwhelming touristy vibe.
We anchored at Pakleni Island, closer to Hvar and considered a fun party cove. From there, we took a water taxi to Hvar for the evening.
A day on each end in Split and Dubrovnik is all you need in each location; in Dubrovnik, we found we had to get out walking before the cruise ship hoards arrived. There are 1100 steps to get up on the walls, but the view is outstanding.
The average travel between locations is 2-3.5 hours per day, so we found the distance slightly longer than the British Virgin Islands.
HVAR boasts two extensive and efficiently managed marinas, both offering an array of additional amenities, such as water toys, fishing equipment, and more. These can be conveniently rented at the last minute to enhance your charter experience.
