Description

Pakleni Kanal lies between Pakleni Otoci and Otok Hvar.
It is a deep and wide channel, with access at both ends, which leads to Luka Hvar.

This channel is frequented by small vessels with local knowledge and affords good shelter from the bora, although heavy squalls may be encountered.

The currents in the channel are strong and irregular.
They change with the tide, but are greatly influenced by the prevailing winds.

Pakleni Kanal s'étend entre les îles Pakleni et l'île de Hvar.
C'est un chenal profond et large, accessible à chaque extrémité, qui conduit au port de Hvar.

Ce chenal est fréquenté par les petits bateaux avec une connaissance locale et est bien protégé de la Bora, bien que de forts grains peuvent être rencontrés.

Les courants dans le canal sont forts et irréguliers.
Ils changent avec la marée, mais sont fortement influencées par les vents dominants.
