Navigating is quite easy as you will be sheltered by the islands around. However, don’t underestimate the capricious winds around Croatia. Beware of the wind that can strengthen when sailing through narrow passages between islands. Be sure to revise the venturi effect before leaving.
During the summer months, winds tend to be light in the morning. A westerly to northwesterly sea breeze comes up around mid-day and can strengthen in the evening. The tidal range is small (30 cm during spring tides) but currents can reach up to 2 knots in the channels between islands.
In Dalmatia, you will get similar weather conditions to the Mediterranean, with temperatures close to 30-32 degrees in summer. The best time to explore Dalmatia is between April and October.
