Can I pay in installments?

What are your cancellation conditions? 

You can find our cancellation conditions here:

 

Do I need to carry cash?
Yes, that’s a good idea.  Some of the islands/bays we will be entering are small towns that may not have the convenience of an ATM nearby, so it’s always a good idea to have cash (local currency) with you at all times.
 
Do I need to consider other costs?
Yes, it's good to allow for extra costs.  Breakfast and lunch will be provided on board, so you will need to allow for dining out at restaurants.  As everyone's tastes are different, so not everyone will always dine together.  You will also need to budget for any alcohol purchases.
 
Can I BYO alcohol?
Yes.  Please remember that galley (kitchen) space is limited, so please consider that when you're planning your weekly drink schedule.
 
Can I BYO food?
Yes.  We will supply basic food items so if you have any special diet requirements or like to snack throughout the day, you can bring on food to suit you.
 
What sort of shoes do I need to bring?
Boat shoes are ideal, however non-making, non-slip shoes are required on board.  Heels and black sole shoes are not to be worn on board because they will damage the boat.  You are free to wear them in port. 
 
You will probably find that bare feet is most comfortable on deck.
 
What are the average temperatures?
You will find that the temperature will fluctuate between high 20 degrees Celsius and high 30s.  It’s good to pack accordingly.
 
How much luggage can I bring?
As we’re on a boat with limited space, we ask that you try to pack as lightly as possible.  You are after all on a sailing holiday, so dust off your favourite swimmers and shades as you may find this is what you’re wearing most of the time. The best luggage to bring is a soft bag over hard luggage, this will also prevent damage to the boat.
 
Remember to bring some light evening clothing should you decide you want to dance the night away or frequent the local restaurants and bars. 
 
Do I need to know how to sail?
No.  Your onboard skipper will take care of the sailing for you.  Your skipper has all the necessary qualifications, however you may be asked to lend a hand in important times such as docking to make for an effortless approach.
 
Can I arrange a group booking?
Of course you can!  We prefer group bookings (up to 6 adults in 3 double cabins).  This way you have your friends with you to make your trip extra special.  Speak with us if you’re thinking about a group booking as special group deals can be arranged for the organiser, so it pays to check with us first.
 
How rough does the weather get?
We sail in the peak seasons, meaning that the sailing conditions are perfect.  Sailing is generally gentle to mild and the seas are generally very flat.  There will of course be the odd gusts to liven things up as Mother Nature does her thing, but that’s all part of the fun.

 

What are the check in and check out times? 

Check in times are at 1pm.  Some boats will be able to leave at 2pm, so please be on time.  Other boats in peak season will leave later.  You will still need to be at the marina at 1pm to allow for an early departure. There are facilities at the marina, including bars, cafes, restaurants and covered outdoor seating areas for your comfort. 

 

Check out time is between 8am and 9am, depending on the boat your on. 

 

Do you have insurance?

We have insurance to cover any boat damage.  You will need to cover your own personal travel insurance. We are not liable for any personal injuries.  
 
How do we get to the marina / Where do we meet the boat at the marina?
You can find us at Marina Kaštela.  Every taxi driver should know where it is, it’s half way between the airport and the Old Town.  

 

The address is: F. Tuđmana 213, 21213 Kaštel Gomilica. We can arrange a transfer for you, you'll need to let us know in advance.

 

The night before you check in, we will email a confirmation of the boats exact location, as we’re never parked in the same place twice.   
 
You will also have the skippers mobile to call for further instructions in case you get lost.
