Safety on the sea

In the Republic of Croatia there is a sea rescue service that helps you in case of damage, defect or any other need. In such cases the rescue action is supported by coastguard (harbour headquarters, police, marine fleet), special purpose vessels as well as the airplanes and helicopters. The rescue service is led by the Maritime Rescue Coordination Centre in Rijeka, on 24-hour duty. If necessary, the rescue actions are done in coordination with the neighbouring borderline services. Beside the Maritime Centre, on 24-hour duty eight harbour headquarters are available, their branch offices, coastal radio-stations, lighthouses and a rescue unit. 24-hour duty is established on VHF canals 10 and 16, while at the Maritime Rescue Coordination Centre the phone number 9115 is available for all needs at sea (calls from abroad +385 51 9115). A phone operator also answers the GMDSS calls. In Croatia there is also a single emergency number 112. In case you need help on yours or somebody other's boat, it is necessary to inform one of these services as soon as possible. Beside the phone number 9115, radio frequency and GMDSS, it is useful to have the phone numbers of the harbour headquarters:

  • Pula 052 222 037
  • Rijeka 051 214 031
  • Senj 053 881 301
  • Zadar 023 433 778
  • Šibenik 022 217 214
  • Split 021 362 436
  • Ploče 020 679 008
  • Dubrovnik 020 418 989

You can always contact these numbers not for help only, but also for the weather forecast information.
