Its development has immediately been characterised by a continuous growth at high development rates. In the first stage, it has not been followed by adequate scientific researches.

Nautical tourism is becoming an economically important type of tourism and proudly bears the name of nautical tourist industry . It is divided into three main kinds: nautical tourism ports, charter and cruising, and is an example of tourist industry which development is economically multifunctional and scientifically interdisciplinary.
