Meeting Point

Marina Baotić

Your meeting point for this Croatia sailing route will be Marina Baotic in Trogir.

Our team will be waiting to meet you here on Saturday from 11 am. You can drop your bags off, meet the crew, and get ready for your trip. Arriving early will give you plenty of time to head to the local supermarket and pick up your favourite drinks and snacks.

You will board your yacht between 1pm and 3pm. We recommend arriving at the marina no later than 2pm.

We recommend downloading WhatsApp as your main point of contact with the crew before and during your trip! If you are running late or need to contact the team, please use this number: +44 7500 901 510

From your meeting point, you will head to your yacht for check-in, meet your Skipper, get settled, and complete the safety briefing onboard your yacht.

Your yacht will arrive at your final stop, Marina Baotic in Trogir, between 1pm and 3pm on the following Friday. Final check out will be at 5pm.

Getting There

Trogir Old Town in Croatia

Baotic Marina, Trogir is located 5km from Split International Airport and only 2km from Trogir Town centre. The marina can easily be reached from the airport in 20min, and from the town centre, it is a 20-minute walk.

Split International Airport (SPU):

Allow approximately 20 minutes to travel to Baotic Marina. You can catch a taxi or order an UBER from the Arrival Terminal.

Make sure you download Uber and create your account before you arrive in Croatia! Uber is the most popular taxi-hailing app, and often provides cheaper rates than the local taxi’s.

The marina address is: Baotic Marina, Ulica, Don Petra Špike 2a, 21218, Seget Donji, Croatia

Split Old Town - Allow 1 hour

Uber: €45 (1-4 people)

Taxi: €70 (1-4 people)

Local Bus (approx €5 per person)

Buses depart regularly from Split Old Town Bus Station to Trogir Bus
Station on Saturday mornings, dropping you at the town centre as
marked on the departure point map. However, buses can be unreliable
and take more than an hour, so if you want to take this option, allow
enough time and consider the travel time and cost from Trogir town
centre to our marina.

Before You Go

Budgeting Tips


As a rule you will find that the prices in Croatia are no different than other major European destinations such as France, Germany or Italy, so keep that in mind when you are budgeting for your sailing holiday.

To help you make the most of your sailing experience in this beautiful country, we recommend (as a guide) €50 to €60 per day to cover your evening meal and drinks, excluding any activities (see below for more info on pricing for activities).


At least 2 of the evenings of your sailing holiday we will overnight in a secluded bay, where the moorings are owned by a local restaurant. It is customary on these nights for guests to eat at the restaurant, and according to local traditions, the Skipper will enjoy a complimentary meal.

These kinds of restaurants are very common along this coast and typically will have higher prices than Konoba’s in larger villages. They are an essential part of sailing in Croatia, and we choose to visit these restaurants to allow guests access to stunning areas that larger boats and tours do not have access to. This provides support to communities that rely on tourism for their income and also gives us a chance to come together as a flotilla and get to know guests on other yachts.


In the yachting industry, it is customary to tip your Skipper. If you feel that your Skipper has done an awesome job during your week onboard, please feel free to tip them at the end of the week, the industry standard is 5 – 10% of the trip cost. Similarly, it is customary to consider tipping up to 10% for a meal at restaurants throughout Croatia.


Some ports where we dock are a short trip via water taxi or transfer from the main town. The reason we park here is because it is not practical to dock in the main town, or regulations do not allow it. The taxi cost is nominal (€10 per person, one way). Please note some services have a minimum capacity so make sure you group together to make this as cheap as possible.

Route Activities

All optional activities are organised and paid for during the week in the local currency.

Safety at Sea

Sustainable Sailing

At MedSailors, we are committed to continuous improvements in environmental, economic & social sustainability and want to ensure we all travel more responsibly on and off the water. Here are some ideas on how you can help us leave smiles not waste.

Reducing Pointless Plastics

One of the biggest environmental issues today is plastic, and sadly, our beautiful ocean is the hardest hit. We ask that you minimise your use of plastic while on holiday with us by packing a reusable tote bag for shopping and saying no to pointless plastics during the trip.

We also ask that you pack a reusable water bottle for the Croatia sailing route trip!

Recycled Floatie Programme

To reduce plastic, we are recycling our past guest’s floaties! For a small donation, we have a limited selection of lilos, rings, unicorns, and even the odd pineapple available at check-in. All proceeds will go to a local charity, so you get a great deal, a super floaty and we are protecting our oceans!

Ocean Friendly Toiletries

If you can, please bring ocean-friendly products to use on board the yachts – this means eco-friendly sun creams, soaps, deodorants, and so on. With so much time spent in the water, we want to make sure we are keeping our ocean as pristine as possible and clean for our future guests (and generations)!

Local Payment

There is a local payment of €125 per person, this covers all your yacht’s running costs including the marina fees, local taxes, the yacht’s fuel, the damage deposit waiver, and the charter pack.

All local payments must be paid in Euro(€) currency.

You can make this payment in advance of your holiday or at check-in using the link below.

Please remember to keep your receipt to show to your Skipper and Host at check-in.
