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: Marina Preko, Olive Island Marina)

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 options: Preko, Poljana, Ugljan village port, Muline, Kukljica, Kali )

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. If you wish to GET AWAY from everything ASAP, it is a very popular way to start your cruise. It is also for certain the cheapest way to start also. (Your options: Sutomiscica, Lukoran, Prtljug, Lamjana Mala.)
