Airport transfers in Croatia

When you know which marina you are sailing from it is important to work out how to get there in time for check-in. You don’t want to miss out on sailing.

How do I get to the marina for my sailing holiday?

All the marinas in Dalmatia are close to some great airports. In this article we will answer your questions about airport transfers in Croatia and how you can get to your yacht in time. How long does it take to transfer from the airport to the marina? Which airport to fly in to? etc.

Easy airport transfers in Croatia

The Yacht Break team can organize airport transfers in Croatia on your behalf to make your journey run seemlessly from the moment you land to setting sail on your luxury vacation! Just let us how many of you are coming in, what your flight details are and how much luggage you are bringing. We will organize someone to meet-and-greet you in arrivals at your given airport and get you to the marina on time. If you are landing a few days before your sailing holiday, they can transfer you to your hotel or accomodation.

This table shows you the distance by road between the most convenient airport and the marinas that we sail from. This will give you an an idea of how long it takes to get to the marinas. You can also click on the links to see the route you will take on a Google map:

Seget Donji (Baotić) 7 km
Trogir (SCT) 6 km

The Yacht Break team can arrange for a reliable company to meet you at the airport and bring you directly to your yacht at the base marina. Whether you require a large transporter (ie an 8-seater), a limo, or smaller taxi, just let us know. We can make reservations for airport transfers in Croatia and then you can pay the driver directly.


Alternatively, you can pick up an Uber from any of the airports for yourself to get you to your sailing holiday. Make sure that you direct them to the correct base marina though, as some towns have more than one! The marina address can be found on your personal booking screen.

Coach transfer

At Split Airport, there is a regular air-conditioned coach that runs to Split bus station for 30 kunas (one-way). Advance tickets are bookable online and are valid all day (you can also pay when you board). In Split, the bus station is the opposite side of the port to the marina. When you alight from the coach, you will need to walk 2.3 km around the bay and along the Riva. It is a pleasant walk with plenty of bars and cafes en route but could be hot if you have cumbersome baggage.

If you land in Dubrovnik airport, there are shuttle buses into the main Dubrovnik bus terminal that coincide with every scheduled flight, costing 55kn. From there you can get a water taxi or uber from the bus terminal to the marina, it is only 5km away.
