Before you arrive:
Fill out crew list
We want your holiday to get off to the perfect start, so please ensure your crew list is completed 4 weeks prior to arrival. Simply log-in to your booking and add your crew following the steps given. Cabin bookers please only add the name of the friend you'll be sharing a cabin with. If you don't do this, you might not get your yacht in time.
Once you have completed your crew list, you can save a lot of time on site if you all check-in online. Each member of the crew must do this before arrival, which will make getting your yacht on time that much easier.
Getting to Montenegro
Tivat Airport (TIV) is the closest airport to our marinas though flights are infrequent. Alternatively, you can fly to the Montenegro capital Podgorica (TGD) which is a 90min transfer to the marinas. If you fly in Dubrovnik, Croatia, you will need to go through a lengthy immigration at the border with Montenegro. We recommend using a search engine to find the best flights:
We recommend using VisaHQ to find out if you require any visas to enter the country - www.visahq.co.uk
