About Yacht charter in Dubrovnik - South Croatia - 

Dubrovnik is the absolute top yacht charter destination in the South Mediterranean.  This fabulous location is a must visit for all nautical enthusiasts who dream of independent yacht charter with an opportunity to visit the best of what Croatia has to offer.  Sailing from the local ACI Marina in Komolac under the lovely Dr Tudjman Bridge and further South towards the city walls is an exhilarating experience. The view of the old harbour with all the beauty of the inner city with its picturesque buildings is a post card view of the best kind and one that is not to be missed. 

When to sail:
For sailing and motor yacht charters, the best season is during June, July and September.  During these months you can enjoy all the best of what the region has to offer with the greatest number of cultural and tourist events scheduled during August.  Apart from fabulous sailing itineraries towards Elafiti and National Park Mljet, access to Montenegro is also possible. April, May and October are best times for real sailing enthusiasts who will appreciate more constant winds and challenging sailing conditions, while the other months of the year are best spent in numerous luxury villas, hotels or spas in the region and using day charter boats for obligatory inspection of local properties and top restaurants.  August being the peak of the season is best for those who wish to be seen and those after cultural aspects of tourism. It should be avoided by those seeking isolation, peace and tranquillity as well as stronger winds.
