You’re in Hvar, Croatia for your vacation? Great choice! You couldn’t have picked a better island – literally. This is the best island in Europe in 2019, according to the Conde Nast Traveler magazine, and the title is well deserved. Incredibly picturesque towns, crystal-clear sea, food and restaurants to die for and all the best the Mediterranean has to offer can be found on this small piece of land in the Adriatic. There are plenty of things to explore, so you are guaranteed a great time. However, it can get so much better, but for that, you will need to rent a boat in Hvar.

Why? Because of the sense of freedom you get when you are not bound to the island anymore. Because of the incredible places that become immediately accessible to you. Because of that unique feeling you get when you’re traveling in your own boat. It doesn’t matter if you’re here with your family or with your friends or both, or if you just want a romantic getaway with your significant other, there is something for absolutely everyone. And it doesn’t even matter if you have a license or not!


Want something big and powerful? Rent a speed boat!

The laws in Croatia require you to have a special license if you’re looking to rent a speed boat. Nautical and VHF license, to be exact. In Croatia, you can get those in Port Authorities, but if you already have one of your own, check to see if it’s accepted in the country’s waters. Have the papers with you at all times – you’ll need them to rent a boat and then you’ll need to have them on the boat non-stop.

However, if you don’t have a license, there’s a solution for that, too – you can always hire a skipper to go along with you. Our staff is exceptionally experienced and expertly trained, so you can rest assured you will always be in good hands, perfectly safe and given the best possible service. In addition, they know this region like the back of their hand, so they can give you tips on which beaches to visit and make sure you have a great time. Not only that, but you can rent out some extremely powerful boats this way (up to 600 HP!), boats that will take you to even the most remote destination very quickly and add a splash of adrenaline to the ride.

Boats like this are ideal for getting to another island quickly, and you have plenty of options if you’re based in Hvar. Speed boats will bring you from Hvar to, for example, Bol and its famous Zlatni rat beach in a blink of an eye, and the island of Vis is pretty close too, along with the magnificent Blue Cave. Regardless of whether you have a license or not, exploring the Split archipelago is an incredible way to spend your vacation, primarily because of the beautiful nature here, but also because of the friendly locals and fantastic island towns.

RIBs and luxury boats

A step above your regular speed boats are RIBs (rigid inflatable boats), which are more powerful and can accommodate up to 12 people (the previous category can fit five or six people). You will always get a skipper to go along with this kind of boat, so you are guaranteed a thrilling ride, no matter where you decide to go. All you have to do is relax and enjoy the experience.

Finally, you have the option to rent a luxury boat from Hvar, too. These also come with an obligatory skipper, but up to 16 people can climb aboard them, so if you’re with a larger group this is the ultimate choice. Exploring all the hidden wonders of these islands really doesn’t get much better than this, and you can just imagine yourself relaxing under the sun in a quiet cove, with pristine sea all around you. If you want to spend your day in style, discovering incredible places for snorkeling, swimming and all other forms of relaxation, this is the boat for you!


Rent a boat on Hvar without a license!

Yes, you’ve read that correctly. It is possible to rent a boat on Hvar without a license. True, this applies only to the smallest boats, but since they can fit about five people, they are more than enough for smaller families or if you’re here with just a few friends. If you have kids along, they will absolutely love it. Naturally, this doesn’t mean there is nothing to learn when it comes to steering this kind of a boat, but you can quickly learn everything you need to know from a local instructor. This is all quite easy, so there is nothing to worry about even if you’ve never done this before, but a certain amount of caution is always necessary.

A small boat like this is absolutely ideal for exploring Hvar. First and foremost, you can get to the Paklinski Islands easily and just hop from one small island to another and enjoy their beautiful beaches. In addition, you can explore the island’s southern coast, which hides some really nice beaches too, plus there’s the option of visiting Šćedro, a pristine islet just south of Hvar. And even that’s not all because you can perhaps also visit Milna or some other town or village on the island and enjoy that, as well. As you can see, even small boats offer you loads of options, and you can make a nice day trip every day for a few days in a row, all the while discovering something new.
