Adriatic Croatia International Club (ACI) was founded in 1983. The ACI Club runs the largest chain of Marinas not only in Croatia, but all over the Mediterranean. Along the Croatian costal from Umag in the north to Dubrovnik in the south there are in total 21 marinas. All of them are well equipped and up-to-date, offering facilities as reception, restaurant, laundry, repair shop, grocery, service, nautical stores etc.
There are also many private marinas scattered along the Croatian Adriatic, mostly well equipped and providing equivalent facilities to the ACI Clubs, including refueling facilities, maintains, restaurants, sanitary and several shops. These marinas are continuously improving their services to meet the needs and wishes of their guests.
Beside the marinas, there are as well hundreds of harbors and small ports where docking is possible.
The harbors and small ports along the coastal are mostly well equipped and wind protected. Every coastal place has its own small port by the seafront promenade where safe anchorage is possible among facilities like bars and restaurants, gas stations, shops etc. It is as well possible to anchor in one of the many sheltered bays, but how ever, a port is always the safer choice and more comfortable as for water connection, electricity, sanitary facilities, constant monitoring and expert advice of the port staff.
