MARINA ACI Marina Skradin
ACI Marina Skradin, one of the most beautiful ACI marinas, is located in the small town of Skradin, 8 miles upriver from the city of Šibenik and two miles downstream of the famous Skradinski Buk, the most spectacular of three waterfall cascades in the Krka National Park. Situated in a narrow inlet on the north side of the river Krka, marina Skradin offers a safe shelter from all winds, although strong jugo can cause small waves. The marina is also very popular among owners of wooden boats due to the site’s rare combination of salt and fresh water.
ACI Marina Skradin is opened all year round. The busiest months of the year are July and August when the marina is often full.

The town of Skradin is easily accessible by road network and local bus lines. The trans-Croatia highway is 4 km from Skradin. There are two international airports nearby – in Zadar and Split, both of which are approximately 60 km from Skradin.
To reach the town of Skradin by boat you will have to pass Šibenik Bay, up the River Krka and through the fresh water lake of Prokljan. When sailing the river, it is customary to keep to the starboard (right-hand) side. In the first half, the riverbed narrows down to 100 m (depth of 7–40 m) at points, and later to 80 m (depth 7–11 m). Note that the left bank of the river is shallower. Through what are often steep-sided and narrow gorges you will come to the ACI Marina Skradin, marked by a green lighthouse on the west coast.
Although the river Krka is navigable, the sailing is prohibited to all boats except small tourist boats. The old bridge nearby is too low for almost all yachts to pass under (9.5 m). Therefore, if you want to visit the Krka waterfalls, you will have to leave your boat and take the waterbus.
