Yacht Charter Rijeka

Rijeka is the main commercial sea port and third largest city in Croatia. It lies at the head of the Kvarner Bay, on the eastern side of the Istrian peninsula; due North of Krk and Cres islands. It is a deep-water port and a major shipbuilding and maritime transport centre. A pleasing city with many points of interest and charming Hapsburg-era architecture, there are also a number of festivals held here in the summer if you are after a cultural fix.


The mainland coast is magnificent, rising from sea level to mountains in a relatively short distance. It is a good place to rent a motorboat, sailboat or gullet. From Rijeka, cruising the Kvarner islands of Krk, Cres, Losinj and the smaller islands and islets is possible. These pretty islands with their crystalline waters, attractive bays for shelter and short distances between them are ideal for sailing. Well-organised with great nautical infrastructure and bountiful natural beauty, Kvarner bay is a fine sailing destination. Along the coast is the busy resort of Opatija, above which is the Ucka Nature Park. In Opatija you can find well-equipped marinas, great dining and a little glamour.


Rijeka is well connected by bus with the rest of Croatia, Italy and Slovenia. Rijeka International Airport is on Krk Island just 30 km away. Domestic and international train lines run from Zagreb, Trieste, Ljubljana, Vienna, Munich and Salzburg. Rijeka is also connected by catamaran to the islands of Cres, Lošinj, Pag, Rab, Unije, Susak, Ilovik. The nearest vehicle and passenger ferry is on the island of Krk which is connected to the mainland close to Rijeka. These ferries travel to Cres Island and Rab Island.


Kvarner Bay offers exciting sailing. Diurnal winds along the coast are mostly moderate during the summer months, predominantly from NW and rarely exceeding force 4/5. During early spring and autumn conditions can be more unsettled. The coastal islands along the coast tend to be more mountainous and navigating between them can be exhilarating in gusty conditions. Both mainland and islands in Kvarner Bay area are well supplied with sheltered ports and marinas for when conditions become too difficult.
