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

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

When is the best time to visit Pula?

The best time to embark on an Adriatic yacht charter in Pula is between May and October when the days are hot, sunny and dry.

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.

Pula wind systems include the daily north westerly mistral, which regularly creates breezes that reach between 10 and 25 knots.

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. 

The southerly jugo can bring poor weather conditions, including rain and wind up to 25 knots.

The marina itself is a perfect starting point with great facilities! The Lagoon 42 was in good condition and the skipper was amazing and very knowledgeable of the area.”

Jonathan

Spain Skippered

What an AMAZING experience. We’ve just returned from a week long skippered charter from Corfu, sailing around the beautiful islands of the Ionian. Paxos, Antipaxos and Corfu Old Town were beautiful and the secluded bays we had the pleasure of visiting thanks to our local skipper, Nicholas, were simply overwhelming. Fly and flops are no longer for us – we’ll be chartering with DYC for the foreseeable future.

David

Greece Skippered

Our group of 10 had an AMAZING time in French Polynesia from May 21-28, 2022! The food was amazing, our captain and chef, husband and wife: Henry and Mehee (sp), were incredible and the whole experience on board was a dream! We can’t wait to book another trip through DYC

Katie

DYC provided a great sailing experience for my extended family on 2 monos out of Scrub Island. The boats were in great shape and preformed perfectly and the staff were friendly and helpful. Having worked for a number of charter companies over the years DYC is one of the best.

Charlie

British Virgin Islands Bareboat

Baja is my favorite place now. There was something for everyone: sailed under northerlies with mostly calm evenings, snorkeled, fished, bummed it on the sandy beaches, enchanted by pelicans feeding, greeted by the barking sea lions and explored the Ispiritu Santo island geology. DYC La Paz base provided competent professional support with a well provisioned and maintained boat. We were nourished well by an onboard cook arranged with DYC freeing us all for more play. A vacation and an adventure connected with nature.

We had an incredible trip and actually got engaged on the first night of our sail! We will certainly be back one day. Thank you for getting us ready for our charter. We were definitely beginners but he gave us a very thorough but very easy to follow training and it gave us a lot of confidence.
