The flotilla sails from Zaton, near Sibenik. It takes in a variety of stops, including the islands of Prvic, Dugi Otic, Murter and Piskera. There’s even a chance to visit a second National Park: The fabulous Krka waterfalls at Skradin are well worth a visit.

The fleet is generally relatively new but there are a few older boats for the budget conscious. Yachts from 2 to 5 cabins are available, including catamarans.

The flotilla has an associated RYA Sailing School. This enables you to take crewing or skippers qualification whilst enjoying the flotilla.

Kornat Flotilla Itinerary

Average16Note: you will do more miles than this!
1: Sat0Check in.
  • Zaton Zaton is a small charter base offering flotillas, bareboat charters and learn to sail courses. Nestling at the foot of the Rastovac, Križeva Glava and Glavica Hills, Zaton is a small fishing and farming town at the north west end of Sibenik Bay, about 4nm from Sibenik itself. Traditional stone buildings surround the natural harbour with pleasant walks ... Read more
2: Sun10It's the punch party at:
  • Prvic Luka (Prvic) Once a retreat for the rich of Sibenik, Prvic island is an agricultural and fishing centre, little touched by international tourism. Many of today’s visitors are day trippers from the mainland so by the evening, it’s quiet place. Prvic Luka, at the south end of the island is one of only two villages (the other, Sepurine ...

Or
  • Zlarin Known as the Coral Island, Zlarin is a lush island near the mouth of the Krk river. The island is clad with pine and cypress forests, figs and olives. You can walk peacefully along the 20km of roads as cars are prohibited. The red coral for which the  island is famed is largely exhausted. However, there’s still ... Read more

  • Murter / Hramina (Murter) For a town of 2000 people, Murter packs a lot in. It’s the capital of the island, and by reputation, of the Kornati National Park: The inhabitants supposedly own most of the islands! Murter has a host of shops and restaurants, as well as daily farmers and fish markets. With a number of churches, some Roman ruins, ... Read more
4: Tue20
  • Sali (Dugi Otic) Home of the world famous (?) annual donkey races, Sali was named for its salt production in medieval times. Today, fishing, olives and holiday makers are the main earners though as the largest village (population under 2000) on the island of Dugi Otok, it also serves as its administrative centre. If you fancy a swim, there’s a ... Read more
5: Wed10
  • Piskera / Panitula Vela Piskera is a small uninhabited island in the Kornati archipelago, inside the National Park. The Kornati Park is the high spot of many Croatia yacht charters. Bizarrely, Piskela Marina isn’t actually on Piskera but on the adjacent island of Panitula Vela. No matter, the latter is also a small uninhabited island so you won’t miss anything! The ... Read more
6: Thu34Free sailing. Several options but I highly recommend a trip up the river to:
  • Skradin / Krka River / Krk National Park It’s worth a visit to Skradin just to sail up the river, but once there, a trip in to the Krk National Park is a must. After mooring your yacht, a short ferry boat ride takes you to the park entrance from where you can walk up to the first of 7 waterfalls which total ... Read more
Or how about
  • Uvala Opat The southernmost bay on the island that gives its name to the Kornati National Park. There’s a single restaurant and half a dozen houses and that’s your lot. A great place to get away from it all. Read more

More about the Kornati Flotilla

The nearest airport is Split. The airport is well served by flights from the UK. Most are provided by low cost carriers. The flotilla is the usual Saturday start.

The operator offers optional airport transfers. It’s about a 50-60 minute trip from Split Airport.

Those wanting sail training can take an instructor on board their yacht, or take a berth on a Tuition Yacht. Those not wanting training are also welcome to join the Tuition Yacht. This opens the flotilla to those not wanting too take their own yacht.
