ACI Umag

Umag, a town and a port on the nortwestern coast of Istria, is the first nautical entry into Croatia from central Europe, only 40 kilometers from Trieste and 50 nautical miles from Venice. The town dates back to ancient times and is situated in the attractive bay whose most beautiful ornament it the prestigious ACI marina Umag. The marina has 475 berths available, can receive yachts up to 40 m long, and has, for the past 14 years, proudly flown the Blue flag, a guarantee of clean sea and superior equipment. In 2007 and 2008 ACI marina Umag was pronounced the best marina on the Croatian side of the Adriatic.

Since the vicinity of Umag is the home to some of the best Croatian wines, which tend to be accompanied by superior gastronomy, ACI marina Umag is the ideal starting port for all those who are looking for gastronomy and enology experiences.

ACI Rovinj

It is simply impossible to be in Rovinj and not feel good. This idyllic town is a brilliant Istrian gem that will captivate you with its charm, its colours, its pitoresqueness, its medieval architecture of narrow stone streets, and its culinary delights. Saint Euphemia watches over the town, once a small fishing village and now a leading light of Croatian tourism. ACI Marina Rovinj will, like the goldfish of legend, make the wishes of every boater and friend of the sea come true.

ACI Marina Rovinj is located in the southeastern part of the harbour, offering the best view of Rovinj. Surrounded by a pine forest, it is only 1 km from the town centre. Boats at anchor can rock and sway peacefully because the islet of Saint Catherine (Sv. Katarina) provides ideal shelter against all winds. The marina is open year-round.

Did you know…?
…that there are as many as 22 islets in the Rovinj archipelago, of which St. Andrew (Sv. Andrija) and St. Catherine (Sv. Katarina) are the largest and the most beautiful. The list of protected natural monuments and special reserves in the Rovinj area includes the islands and the coastal area from the islet of St. John (Sv. Ivan) to Two Sisters Islet (Dvije sestrice), the sea and the undersea world of the Lim Channel and part of Lim Bay, the park-forest Punta Corrente forest park, the Palud marshes, Romuald’s Cave, and the Cave di Monfiorenzo quarry.

…that every summer since 1967 Rovinj has been the venue of a unique open-air art exhibition and the town’s most iconic cultural event – the Grisia. Named after the street that, like a backbone, connects the main town square and the Church of St. Euphemia, Grisia is an open-air artists’ studio and what makes it truly unique is the fact that works of amateurs, including children, are exhibited side by side with works of formally trained artists.

From the sea one can recognize Rovinj by the bell tower of the church of St. Euphemia standing on the hill in the middle of the peninsula, as well as the St. Katarina Island beneath the very town. Cape St. Euphemia is a marked by a lighthouse (Fl 4s 19m 7M) which can be used as a way point (45°05,0’ N 13°38,0’E).

ACI Pula

Istria’s largest city, Pula brims with historical sights, the grandest of which is certainly the Roman amphitheatre. Locally known as the Arena, it is one of the best-preserved Roman Imperial buildings in the world, testifying to the turbulent and millennia-long history of this region. The enormous natural harbour has been used since early Antiquity, and it served as the main naval harbour of the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy. In the very heart of this historic harbour, only metres away from the Arena, lies the 194-berth ACI marina. Pula International Airport is only 5 km away.

In the immediate vicinity of Pula are the Brijuni Islands, once among the most prestigious summer resorts visited by emperors, presidents, world leaders and stars of Hollywood’s golden age. For thousands of years Pula has been both a centre of Istria and a gateway to it, one of the ideal starting points for an exploration of natural, cultural and culinary riches of the peninsula that is often described as an untouched, pristine version of Tuscany.

Did you know…?
… that Pula has the world’s largest amphorae find site. More than two thousand amphorae were found in the waters around Pula, and a permanent exhibition of these unusual vessels, used in antiquity for storing and transporting olive oil, wine, salted fish and preserved fruit, can be visited in the underground passages of the Pula Amphitheatre.

…that the renowned National Geographic Traveler recommended a visit to Istria and its capital of Pula to its readers, ranking them among the 10 most attractive travel destinations in the world.

…that today Pula boasts several summer music festivals, the largest film festival in the region as well as concerts of international music stars, while the nearby Brijuni Islands are home to a theatre company whose first performances are attended by Hollywood’s and Europe’s A-list celebrities.

Approach
The harbour is located in a natural bay between the peninsula and the breakwater, which provides excellent protection. The safe entrance to the harbour is between the breakwater head (an extension of Cape Kumpar) which is marked by a green lighthouse (Fl G 3s 9m 6M) and Cape Proština which has a red lighthouse (Fl R 3s 9m 5M). The exact position of the Kumpar lighthouse is 44°53.2’ N 13°47.7’ E. Then steer towards the southern cape of Andrija Islet, where there is a green lighthouse (Fl G 2s 7m 1M). The islet can be rounded from both the southern and northern sides, and the passage between it and Katarina Island is well marked for a night approach (sail between two pairs of red and green lighthouses). After the passage another lighthouse, on Uljanik Island (Fl G 5s 7m 3M), shows the way to ACI Marina Pula. On rounding that lighthouse the marina comes into view. Attention should be paid to several iron buoys anchored intermittently along the approach course to the marina. The speed limit in the harbour is 8 knots. Note: It is recommended to use official navigational charts published by HHI Split: 100-16, 50-3 and MK-3.

About us

Company details

Navigare necesse est – “to sail is necessary,” the ancient seafarers’ saying claims, and it is clearly necessary to keep sailing in Croatia, over and over again: according to a recent study published as part of Croatia’s Tourism Institute TOMAS Nautika research project, half of all foreign boaters to have sailed Croatia’s Adriatic coast have done so on at least six separate occasions. They have answered the siren call of  countless inlets and coves, paradise beaches, and other wonders of untouched nature, including the food that combines the best of Mediterranean and Continental cooking. Each successive visit to the Croatian Adriatic yields new discoveries, and it is hard to imagine investigating its marvels and hidden corners without ACI’s marinas.

In charge of the Mediterranean’s largest chain of marinas, Croatia’s leading boating tourism company is the first choice of boaters from all over the world and an ideal starting point for embarking on new adventures. Boaters know this and keep coming back to ACI, and in return ACI caters to their every wish. Whether they prefer active holidays, or relaxing far from the noise and commotion of cities, or crave new cultural, nature or food experiences, ACI can offer them the best sailing routes, complete comfort and a safe berth.

The treasure of ACI’s marinas is strategically spread from Umag in the far north of Croatia’s Adriatic coast to Dubrovnik in its far south. It gives us great pleasure to announce that a new marina – Slano on the Dubrovnik Riviera – will become the 22nd member of ACI’s chain in the course of the 2015 boating season. Each of the 22 marinas is situated either in the very centre of an ancient town or a stone’s throw from one of Croatia’s striking natural wonders, while in no way detracting from their alluring beauty. The fact that almost 400,000 boaters each year choose ACI as their host confirms that ACI offers precisely what today’s boaters want. The ingeniously connected chain of marinas makes it possible for boaters to spend each day at a different attractive destination, taking advantage of numerous discounts and special offers; and after saying “see you next year” – because one never says farewell to the Croatian coast! – they return home with unforgettable memories and a hunger for new Adriatic adventures.

Adventure is something that Croatia’s Adriatic coast has in spades and offers freely. It is a fascinating mosaic composed of the ancient and the modern, of untouched nature and urban comfort, of unique local customs happily co-existing with, and perfectly complementing, modern tourist industry’s most recent technological and organisational accomplishments. The unique broad network of ACI’s marinas provides an opportunity for boaters to see all the cultural and natural sights of the astounding Adriatic coast; to uncover, in the space of just a few days, the secrets preserved for millennia by the living monuments of the past such as Rovinj, Pula, Split, Korčula or Dubrovnik; to relish the peace and quiet of Cres’s, Rab’s, Pag’s, Brač’s or Hvar’s hidden island coves; or to experience the unreal harmony of Kornati, Krka and Mljet national parks’ unspoiled nature.

Free time is one of the most precious currencies in the modern world. The ACI team will do everything in their power to make all dreams come true for boaters who spend the year yearning for the Croatian Adriatic. In the meantime, until the next boating season, enjoy “sailing” our new web pages, just as we enjoyed putting them together for you.
