You don’t require any previous boating experience if you hire just a small dinghy boat with a set of oars like this one below. You can still have a lot of fun even with the smallest dinghy.

A small dinghy is ideal for someone who has no experience in driving a boat. Still a great fun :)

Do I need a licence to drive a boat?

This is an important point: To be able to rent your own self-driving boat (to get around without a skipper) you would need to have a boat licence and previous experience with driving boats.

Do I Need a Skipper?

In Korcula, you can rent either skippered or non-skippered boats. If you don’t have a boat licence your other option is to rent a kayak or rent a boat with a skipper which is also available. Alternatively, to reach your desired Archipelago destination you can also take a taxi boat.
