The Velebit Channel is a sea passage that continues to the Vinodol Channel on the northwest side near Klenovica and stretches under the Velebit coast along the islands of Krk, Prvić, Goli Otok, Rab and Pag to the sea passage near Maslenica. The Velebit Channel is 121 km long with an average width of 3 to 4 km. The greatest recorded depth is 106 m. The Velebit Channel is a famous coastal landscape with the strongest gusts of the bora, which reach hurricane strengths in the winter months. The shores of the Velebit Channel are not overly indented.
The Velebit Channel is a long sea passage between the coast of the mainland and the island along the coast that stretches from the capes of the island of Krk all the way to the passage into the Novigrad Sea. This sea route is navigable along its entire length, along which you can observe numerous islands and important sights such as the Nehaj fortress, which is located south of the port of Senj. It is important to emphasize the importance of the bora in this channel. Here it acts with the strongest intensity and begins very abruptly and with great speed.
