Uvala Stoncica (Anchorage)

We tried to anchor in the southern part of the bay, but it was a bit crowded, and rapidly shoaled off from deep water to very shallow and we could not find a place where we would have enough swing room. We also tried the bay on the western shore, but could not get comfortable there either. We finally moved on to Rogacic for the night which is a great, secure anchorage.
Don't get caught in a Northerly here. Anchor in the small inlet on the western shore, or in the southern part of the bay. Rocky bottom with good holding. Restaurants in the southern section of the bay.

Bisevo (Blue Cave) (Point of Interest)

Anchor in the bay to the north and explore the cave by dinghy. The best lighting in the cave is around noon when the sun is high.

A boat man will collect 30Kn($6) per person as entrance fee.

Bisevo (Anchorage)

The water is very deep until you get close in. We anchored on a sand patch in 5 m of water. We dingied around the corner to the cave. After the cave, we went ashore for a drink at the popular quay side bar where the tourist boats dock.

We also walked up the hill to look at the intersting buildings.

Where we tied the dinghy (Dockage)

The dock was very busy with cave boats and ferries, so we tied to a rock in the corner

Komiza (Anchorage)

This might be the prettiest town that we saw in Croatia. Fascinating, ancient, multi storey buildings right on the waters edge.

We paid 70Kn "ecological tax" to anchor , which included garbage collection and 2 hours on the dock for water. The dock was so crowded that we ended up getting the water in jerry jugs with the dinghy.

Tailed moorings on the breakwater with electric. The dockman said dockage was 30Kn /meter.

Attractive small town, delightful harbour. We had a wonderful meal for two of rump steak and mussels, grilled vegetables, local wine, and coffee for 296Kn ($60)

Shops, restaurants, hotel.

Fishing Museum ,old castle worth a visit.

Customs and Immigration (Formalities)

The Customs and immigration kiosk is at the end of the pier where the ferry docks. You need to call them on the phone when you want to check in or out. They will come from their office in Vis.

Remember to tell them on the phone that you are in Komiza. I waited for hours after calling them to find out that they thought I was in Vis town.

We checked out of here for Vieste.

Fishing Museum (Museum)

The fishing museum is housed in an ancient fortress on the waters edge.

They have a full size half model of a classic sailing skiff, in the museum that must have been completely dismantled  to get through the original, tiny door, and reasembled inside the room.

The curator is very friendly and passionate about the displays in the museum.

Rogacic (Anchorage)

This is an excellent anchorage! Very protected and secure. Good holding. A very impressive submarine bunker on the north shore.

We anchored here overnight and then went into Vis town the next morning.

Uvala Stivina (Anchorage)

Amazing bay

We motored in here but did not anchor as it was quite deep. There were a few boats anchored.

Amazing hidden beach at the haed of the bay.

Vis Town (Anchorage)

We anchored in here in the morning in company with Hob Nob, and went ashore for some shopping and coffee.

Hob Nob said they had paid 50Kn ($10) for anchoring the previous evening, which is not a bad price for this great location.

Beautiful bustling town. Well worth a visit.
