The best time for a yacht charter in Šibenik is June and July, with ideal sailing conditions, long sunny days, warm weather, refreshing sea, and almost no crowds at all. You will feel like you are cruising around your very own private archipelago wherever you go.

If those months don’t fit in your busy schedule, don’t worry. You can start your yacht charter in Šibenik around the whole summer season (April – November).

The high season is in July and August, and it is the most popular time to charter a yacht and cruise around the Adriatic.

The low summer season is in June and September, and it offers fewer crowds and ideal sailing conditions.

The shoulder season in April, May, October, and November is perfect to explore nature in all its glory and to enjoy complete privacy.

The winds are particularly reliable during the sailing season when local sailors claim they can set their watch by them. Wind mistral blows during the day, peaking between 9 am and 12 pm, then taking a break for a couple of hours before returning around 3 pm for a few more hours until dusk, when the winds die down, to a light breeze.

The daytime winds usually force 4 or 5 and their predominant direction is landward, which is driven by the sun – as the land warms and the air above it rises during the day, the air is drawn in by the sea.

This family got the bare island Katina in the late 19th century from Zadar’s aristocrats and that’s where the real story begins. The old stone house on the shore was a shelter to fishermen and passengers from storms and used as the place where fishermen who caught fish in the open seas outside the Kornati used to unload the catch.

However, fishermen and sailors kept visiting this little bare island with a single stone house for the generosity and hospitality they used to get from the shelter owners. Slowly this shelter for fishermen and sailors became the first restaurant on the Kornati islands.
