Pula happy friends summer vacation yacht charter

Starting your yacht charter in Pula from our base at the ACI Marina in Pomer, sail through the crystal clear water of the Adriatic Sea to historic harbors and anchor off uninhabited islands. 

On land, immerse yourself in history and culture in the narrow streets of 3,000 year old coastal villages and towns with the characteristic brick and red roof architecture for which the region is known.

Pula, in northern Croatia, has a hot dry climate in the summer, with excellent sailing conditions and many interesting destinations just a short sail away from our marina. So, when sailing Pula with us, you can tie up at ancient docks in bustling fishing villages and dine at celebrated restaurants, or anchor in lush national parks and experience the pristine islands that are as green and fertile as Tuscany 

To sail Pula on an Adriatic yacht charter, you will need a sailing license that is recognized by the local port authorities, or you can hire a skipper. Read our guide to sailing qualifications for more information.

Things to do in Pula

Swim with dolphins at Maračol Bay

Maračol Bay on the south side of Unije (Losinj Island) is famous for its dolphins, so it’s a great place to swim and snorkel.

Sail to the island of Silba, the northernmost Dalmatian island, and climb the spiral stairway of the Toreta Tower. You’ll love the view of the entire island and the northern Dalmatians.

Stargaze in Jadrišćica Bay

Due to its remote location away from any major cities, Jadrišćica Bay on the south side of the nearby island of Cres is perfect for stargazing on dark summer nights – making it one of the top things to do in Cres.

Snorkel on a shipwreck

Explore the island of Ist, being sure to save time to snorkel on a shipwreck in Pantera Bay.

Visit an ancient Roman amphitheater

Explore Pula’s array of ancient Roman buildings, including the Pula Arena, which is reportedly one of the best preserved Roman amphitheaters

The average temperature in Pula in summer is between 78ºF and 95ºF; with the sea temperature in Pula being between 75°F and 82°F in summer too.

What are the sailing conditions in Pula?

The sailing conditions for yacht charters in Pula are excellent in the summer when there is often good wind and sunny weather.

However the north easterly bura (bora) can also appear and needs more sailing experience. If the bura is forecast, it’s recommended to find a sheltered anchorage as the gusts can range between 30 and 50 knots.

Why should I book with Dream Yacht?

  • A diverse fleet of yachts with a wide variety of models and manufacturers to suit every type of sailor.
  • We have 40+ exciting destinations and we’re a pioneer in finding new sailing grounds.

  • You’ll receive a warm and friendly welcome from our base teams who will share regional tips, recommendations and advice.
  • We’re also a trusted seller of new and used boats and an innovator in charter management options – sailing is our business.

What licenses do I need to hire a yacht and sail myself?

The skipper of a yacht has primary responsibility for the safety of the crew and yacht at all times. Many destinations require just relevant experience demonstrated by a sailing resume.

To charter in the Mediterranean, it is mandatory that you hold a sailing license recognized by the local port authorities for bareboat charters in Italy, Greece, Croatia, Spain, Malta, Montenegro and Turkey. Other destinations that require a license include Madagascar, Seychelles, Thailand, Brazil and Sweden. For Belize, the port authority will issue a certificate of competency and an application is made on arrival.

You must take your proof of competency and original certificate with you on your charter. We advise you to contact our team about your qualifications and destination requirements before booking.

By accepting the yacht contract you are confirming that you and/or members of your crew are capable and competent to sail the yacht in the conditions and cruising area of the charter. We reserve the right not to hand over the yacht if, after inspection, it is the opinion that the charterer is not, or may not be competent to be in charge of the vessel.

What is a skippered yacht charter?

A skippered yacht charter is when you rent one of our boats for you and your guests and a professional skipper sails it for you. No sailing experience is needed.

You will need to choose a yacht with a cabin for your skipper to sleep in as they are responsible for your yacht for the duration of your charter. We will find the skipper for you once you have found your perfect destination and yacht.

You will need to pay for your skipper’s food. You can invite the skipper to dine with you on board or out at a local restaurant.

What is the difference between crewed and by the cabin charters?

Our by the cabin charter charters offer exciting destination tours on a set itinerary crafted by our destination experts. You can book a double cabin and private bathroom and will share the boat with other guests who have booked the other available cabins. You will be looked after by a professional skipper and hostess with itineraries ranging from three to 11 nights. There is a set menu and included meals and drinks vary depending on location.

Can you tell me about your yachts?

Our super premier yachts are less than 12 months old from their first charter date, while premier yachts are less than three years old from their first charter date. Our yachts are well maintained and undergo regular, scheduled technical inspection.

In case of emergency, you can rely on our hotline, at any time, seven days a week. If you experience a technical failure affecting major and important parts of the yacht, we will repair the failure within four hours of receiving your call during working hours (8am to 5pm). If you lose more than four hours (during working hours), we will compensate you for one full day. If the repair takes more than one day, we will provide you with a similar boat or compensate you on a pro-rata basis. If restrictions to this guarantee apply in specific areas, this will be detailed during the charter check-in at the base.

Do I need insurance?

We highly recommend you arrange travel insurance in case you need to cancel for an unexpected reason to cover non-refundable deposits. Please make sure you have personal travel insurance that covers sailing.

We will insure the vessel throughout the charter with first-class insurers against all risks, to provide permission to charter as under contract terms and to cover third-party liability.

The following options are available in limited locations:

  • Security Deposit: This varies on the size of the boat and when the boat is returned without damage it is refunded.
  • Damage Waiver: The charterer agrees to pay a non-refundable damage waiver at the time of booking, as well as a reduced damage deposit on embarkation that is refundable upon completion of the charter should no damage occur.

What an EXCELLENT experience. We just returned from a week long charter with skipper from Corfu, sailing around the beautiful islands of the Ionian Sea. Paxos, Antipaxos and the old town of Corfu were beautiful and the secluded bays we got to visit thanks to our local skipper Nicholas were simply stunning.

Baja is now my favorite place. There was something for everyone: sailing under northerly winds with mostly calm evenings, snorkeling, fishing, secluded sandy beaches, pelican feedings, being greeted by barking sea lions, and exploring the geology of Ispiritu Santo Island. Dream Yacht Base La Paz provided competent professional support with a well-equipped and maintained boat. We were wonderfully cooked by an on-board chef arranged with Dream Yacht, which meant more free time for all of us. An unforgettable vacation and adventure connected with nature.
