WHEN TO CHARTER IN VIS
We recommend you charter a yacht in Vis in the high season, between the months of July and August, since the island of Vis is remote and not as accessible as the other islands closer to the mainland. This means you will get to enjoy the perks of your yacht on an island filled with untouched nature and crystalline waters, but without the summer crowds.
During the main summer season, the island becomes a true oasis for yacht charterers. Although the yachting season in Vis starts in April and lasts until November, temperatures are ideal and the sea is warm during the entire summer, which is perfect for all kinds of yacht charter activities.
If your schedule does not permit chartering a yacht in Vis from June to September, do not worry, even in the shoulder season, booking a yacht charter in Vis will be an extraordinary experience.
The air temperature during the summer is somewhere between 25 C° (77F) – 30 C° (86F) and the sea temperatures are around 20C° (68F) – 25C° (77F).
The SuperYachts Croatia team will create a completely tailor-made itinerary that will suit your preferences and needs on your yacht charter in Vis.
