The Croatian Navy (Croatian: Hrvatska mornarica) of the Independent State of Croatia was a national navy during World War II. Circa 1942, the force was divided into a Coast and Maritime Traffic Command with headquarters in Crikvenica, Makarska and Dubrovnik, and a River and River Traffic Command with headquarters in Zemun.

During the war, much of the navy's capacity was sent to the Eastern Front as the Croatian Naval Legion (Croatian: Hrvatska Pomorska Legija).

The navy had three commanders during its history:

  • Djuro Jakčin (1941 - 1943)
  • Edgar Angeli (1943 - 1944)
  • Nikola Steinfel (1944 - 1945)
