    We dock at dock Q at 8:00 p.m. to start the administrative procedures. Free but only while checking-in * 1st police. Then you have to go to anchor in the bay or if there is a mooring place available at the dock (payment) in front of the city. * 2nd captaincy possible from 7am to 3pm. Tax payment. And free to navigate Croatia.

    Atracamos en el muelle Q a las 20h para iniciar los trámites administrativos. Gratuito pero solo mientras se hace el check-in *1ero policia. Luego hay q ir a fondear en la bahia o si hay lugar amarre disponible en el muelle (pago) frente a la ciudad. *2 do capitanía posible de 7h a 15h. Pago de impuesto. Y libres para navegar por Croacia.

    CAVTAT is a beautiful place. We were last here in 2003. At that time the police station and the port authority were already recognizable from the port entrance. Today both can no longer be found without outside help. There is a well-organized cartel of agents for this. If you buy your permit here, you can only pay at the post office. The opening hours of the authorities are the biggest problem. We arrived around 9:00 a.m. and were the first to check in. We ignored the Storry at anchor at the customs pier. After 30 minutes we were finished and circled by 4 yachts over 20m. Worked well, but could only be done by bike. In conversation with the harbor master it became clear that it is also possible to anchor with the rubber dinghy. The agents then do not even notice that you are declaring in or out.

    CAVTAT ist ein bildschöner Ort. Wir waren 2003 das letzte Mal hier. Damals war die Polizeistation und das Hafenamt schon von der Hafeneinfahrt erkennbar. Heute sind beide ohne fremde Hilfe nicht mehr zu finden. Dafür gibt es ein gut organisiertes Kartell von Agenten. Wer hier sein Permit kauft, kann nur auf dem Postamt bezahlen. Die Öffnungszeiten der Behörden sind das größte Problem. Wir kamen gegen 0900 Uhr morgens und waren die ersten zum Einklarieren. Die vor Anker Storry am Zollanleger haben wir ignoriert. Nach 30 min waren wir fertig und von 4 Yachten über 20m eingekreist. Hat gut funktioniert, war aber nur mit Fahrrad zu machen. Im Gespräch mit dem Hafenmeister zeigte sich dass es auch mit dem Schlauchboot und vor Anker geht. Die Agenten merken dann gar nicht, dass man ein- oder ausklariert.

    We found the check in at Cavtat very friendly, simple and easy. It is still slow around here so we were able to tie up alongside the quay. Even though it is a simple and easy dock, we were happy to pay the dockhand 100kn. A smile and a few kuna go a long way!! He then proceeded to tell us about which twists and turns and alleyways to find the port police and customs. Soon a young man appeared and told us he was an agent (college kid, summer break gig) and could help us with our paperwork for 200kn. Every piece and every page PLUS help us find a SIM card. 300kn well spent helping keep bread on some plates, kids in college and made some friends in the meantime. Anchorage is great around to the east side of the peninsula. A lot of seagrass but you can find some good sandy spots. Not good for strong North winds. Super quaint, cute little town. Well stocked grocery store, ferries to Dubrovnik, good oceanfront restaurants. The only drawback we found was the approach path to the airport is directly overhead. Not too many flights so it is only for a short time. All in all we gave this anchorage 5 stars for efficiency of agents, convenience, ambiance, scenic views, and friendliness of the community.
