Please make sure you arrive at Marina Kaštela (pronounced "cash-teller"), (Split) with plenty of time, all taxi drivers know where it is, if not there is a map below with the address and a phone number to call.

If you are unsure, you can go into Noa Yachting office and the staff will advise where you can find the Med Sailing Holiday’s boats. It's worth noting that the marina oversells annual contracts, so our boats are generally berthed in the service area, but from time to time we are placed on Pier C. We will advise you on Friday evening if we are being moved to Pier C.

If you require marina instructions when you're in Croatia, please call Noa Yachting on +385 21 271 185. The staff are all fluent in English and very friendly.
