Car / boat advice

Hi,

I'm visiting the Island of Korcula at the end of May for a really chilled out holiday.

We'd like to hire a boat to explore the coastline and a few of the surrounding Islands but we haven't driven a boat before. Is it difficult / dangerous? How do they work?

Also we are staying near Vela Luka and would like to explore the whole island. Should we hire a car for the week or could you cycle the island?

Thanks in advance

You do need a certificate to hire a boat of a certain size - when a relative of ours tried to hire one a few years ago he found out he could only hire a small vessel without a certificate.

You can cycle around the island safely in May but Vela Luka is at the very end of the island and around 35/40 minutes drive to the main town of Korcula. There is a good bus system that operates taking you to and from Vela Luka to the main town and all the small towns and villages along the way

Why do you not e-mail Korkyra as besides operating transfers from Dubrovnik to Korcula they also hire cars and boats - they will be able to let you know the size of the boat you can hire without a certificate - their e-mail is :-

info@korkyra.info

You do not necessarily have to use this company but you would then know what boat you can hire and an idea of how much it would be to hire a car if you wished

Have a good trip !
