DO I NEED A LICENSE TO RENT A BOAT ON KORCULA?
While you can drive a boat without one, at least one person on boat should have nautical license. Nautical license also known as an International Certificate of Competence (ICC) and a VHF radio certificate. It is mandatory for renting a boat and (from our guests experience) police is doing frequent checkups.
Some rental companies will rent you a boat without a license, but you will be heavy fined and towed in if you get caught.
HOW TO GET LICENSE?
If you have boating experience and are confident in your boating knowledge you can take a simple exam. This gives you a Category B boating license which authorizes you to operate boats up to 30 GT for personal use. The license covers all the inland waterways of Europe and for both inland and offshore coastal waters of the Mediterranean countries.
You can get all the information about exams and courses at nearby Port of Authority.
If you have no previous boating experience it is advisable that you take a course before applying for the exam. The courses are usually 4-6 hours and take you through the basics of piloting a boat, safety and meteorology.
I DONT HAVE LICENSE BUT I WANT TO DRIVE A BOAT!
We have several licensed skippers available who can accompany you. Price for a skipper is 100 EUR per boat per day for rent a boat on Korcula. This way you can drive the boat while licensed person is near you in case of emergency.
