Yacht Charter in Istria and Kvarner

If you're thinking about a yacht charter in Istria, Pula is the best starting place for your adventures. Pula's position at the southwestern part of this heart-shaped peninsula allows you to flexibly plan out your route, regardless of whether you have opted for a bareboat or skippered yacht charter.

Sail aboard your catamaran and explore Istria’s west coast, with jewels such as National Park Brijuni, Rovinj, Vrsar, Poreč, Novigrad and Umag. You can also take a gulet cruise along the eastern side of the peninsula, making a stop or two on Kvarner Bay's islands like the beautiful Cres and Lošinj.

The sailing season runs from April to October. Regattas in Istria are held almost throughout the whole year, from late February till the beginning of December.
