Situated around 4.5 miles up the Dubrovacka River to the north of the City of Dubrovnik, ACI Dubrovnik sits in an impressive bowl surrounded on 3 sides by towering, almost vertical hill sides and cliffs. Though the moorings are tight there seemed to be a reasonable number of visitor berths (though we did not visit on a charter change-over day. Like most ACIs the staff were brisk, efficient but generally helpful. This site is one of the most popular in the ACI stable along with sites such as Split and Trogir. It is well served both by charter companies (being the centre of the southern Adriatic cruising area) and also other services including repairs, cranes (there is extensive hard standing for boats) and a small but well stocked chandler.
ACI Dubrovnik also boasts several cafes and restaurants, a swimming pool (the river is far too polluted to swim in) and also access to a sizeable supermarket by the site’s gate. Just outside the marina and very slightly up river there is a fuel berth.
Though not located in the City of Dubrovnik, there is a regular bus service that leaves from opposite the gate to the marina and deposits you right by the gate to the Old City. The journey takes between 20-30 minutes depending on the traffic and is a quick and convenient way of making into the heart of tourist Dubrovnik.
Much has been written about Dubrovnik - world hertiage site, medieval walled town, jewel of the Adriatic - so there is little need to add to it here.
The Marina offers 350 wet berths and 140 dry berths and is equipped to handle ‘mega-yachts’. Its facilities include a maintenance shop, a 60 ton travel lift and other services including a small shopping mall, a chandlers and tennis courts. Dubrovnik also is served by ferries and an international airport (23 km south).
The site is subject to very strong gusts (the Bora) that run down the steep slopes of the surround hills sometimes at hurricane force, however as far as we can ascertain the marina facilities are capable of withstanding these. Problems may occur however if you are trying to moor-up in these conditions.
