Pasman harbour from NE

The town of Pašman is situated is situated about halfway down the NW side of the island of Pašman in Croatia, just W of the small islet of Babac. While the town is not one of the prettiest of the Dalmatian island capitals, it has a harbour which provides a useful overnight berth for a shallow to moderate draft yacht on passage down the NE side of the island.

There are no dangers in the immediate approach to Pasman Town, although the current can run quite strongly across the harbour entrance at certain states of tide. Note that if approaching from S the three islets SW of O. Babac should be left to port. If crossing from the mainland, note also that the channel between the island of Babac just off Pašman Town and the smaller islet of O. Komornik 350 metres N has depths of just under 4.0 metres and should be avoided with any swell running. The harbour of Pašman Town is entered from N and has depths of 4.0 metres in the entrance and 2.0 - 3.0 metres inside.


Zadar is the nearest all-year round port of entry, or Šibenik if arriving from the S. During the summer, Sali on Dugi Otok and Primošten on the mainland are also ports of entry.


There is effectively only one berthing option in Pašman Town, which is alongside on the quay of the E breakwater, as close to the end as possible. Depths alongside here range from 2.0 metres at the ‘elbow’ of the breakwater to just under 3.0 metres at the end. Ferries also occasionally use the end of the breakwater and it is worth checking the ferry schedule before going ashore. Shelter here is good in all conditions except strong E or NE winds.

Places to Visit

Pašman Town is rather unprepossessing compared with most of the other Dalmatian island capitals and has little of tourist interest.
