GULET CRUISE GUIDE
THE BEST PRIVATE MARINAS, PORTS OR ANCHOR POINTS
You have 3 options on where & how you can start your cruise.
Private Marinas: is the most comfortable option. The driver takes you more or less in front of your gulet. You get on board in a nice and smooth fashion, no crowds and everything is calm and relaxed. However, in general, private marinas are more expensive then if you start your cruise in a port. (Your option in Hvar: ACI Marina Palmižana, ACI Marina Vrboska)
Ports: are usually crowded with lots of people and other ships, yachts & motor sailors. But the locations are best! You step out of the gulet and you are in the heart of the city. If this is what you like, it is perfect. (Your option in Hvar: Harbour of Hvar or Stari Grad harbour)
On Anchor: this means gulet is on anchor close to the main port and you are transferred from port to gulet with a dinghy/zodiac. Some people find this uncomfortable, and it can be unconvinient for seniors, but some love the adventure.
The good part is, that as soon as you step on a dinghy, you know you are on holidays, on a ship and away from everything. (Your option in Hvar: Pribinja bay, Milna bay, U. Vela Stiniva.)
