Slovenia Maritime Information
The Piran Bay already attracts many sailing enthusiasts. On the coast there is a possibility to rent a motor or sailing boat. To do that you’ll either need an appropriate certificate of competency or rent a boat with an experienced skipper on board. Several sailing schools and excursions by boat are available at the coast. On Slovenian beautiful lakes in the other part of the country you’ll find clubs that organize training courses for skippers, navigation and sailing courses. Many Slovenians obtained their initial experience exactly on those lakes.
The Slovenian coastline offers you the nearest contemporary ports for yachts to the Central Europe and is an ideal starting point for cruises on the Adriatic Sea where you can explore more than 1000 amazingly beautiful islands. Three modern and well wind-protected marinas are available for nautical tourists coming to the Slovenian coast. They are located in Portorož, Koper and Izola. All three are winners of the European Blue Flag ecological character, which means they are environment friendly. You will also find the Yachting Center in Izola under the auspices of Izola Shipyard for technical service. All three marinas provide petrol supply and in addition to that petrol stations are available on public piers in Piran and Izola.
