calendar iconJul 03, 2023

When you arrive near Zadar, you will be tempted to explore the wider maritime area, because it consists of more than 300 islands and islets, each one hiding a different secret. Among many agencies, give your trust to Zadar Archipelago speedboat tours, because we are one of the oldest and most experienced tour operators in the greater Zadar region. This raises a question: how to pick a boat tour that is perfect for you?

Since there are so many islands, we also offer a variety of different tours to accommodate different needs and expectations. So, don’t be overwhelmed when you come face to face with our exciting offers; instead, talk to your local Zadar Archipelago tour operator to determine which boat tour is best for you.

To find the quickest answer to that question, you need to ask yourself what sort of person you are: do you like adventure, solitude, beautiful panoramas while cruising, or picturesque beaches where you can enjoy the sun, sea, and sand? Or is just hanging out with friends in a beautiful spot enough for you? Luckily, we have something for every taste, so before you book a day trip with Zadar Archipelago, it is a good idea to decide what kind of boat tour will fit your character (and the character of your day trip party, if you are planning a group trip).

Fast and short day trips for a busy holiday itinerary

Firstly, if you do not want to waste time on long commutes, we have excellent day trips to Ugljan and Molat, islands that sit right across Zadar and are 10 minutes of slow cruising away from the old town core. If you are planning on seeing as much of the Croatian Adriatic as possible, and Zadar is just another stop in your busy holiday itinerary, then you might also want to book a half-day trip to Saharun beach.

A full-day Robinsonian adventure

For adventurers who do not want to spend the entire day zig-zagging around the gorgeous Zadar archipelago, we would recommend escaping the summer crowds that squeeze into the narrow streets of Zadar and finding refuge in one of the many incredible spots for a perfect Robinsonian atmosphere.

For lovers of peace and privacy

For those who cherish privacy and solitude above all else, there is a solution. Book a trip with Zadar Archipelago to the incredible top picks of Best of Dugi Otok. Read a book in the shade while being cooled off by incredibly fresh summer breezes.

Both of these tours will bring you up close and personal with all the wonders and splendours of the Adriatic and Croatian nature. Since Kornati and Telaščica are considered to be one of the most beautiful of all National and Nature parks in Croatia, beauty will find you at every corner.

How to pick a boat tour with Zadar Archipelago?

Try to establish what you want to gain out of your day trip experience and be vocal about it to your Zadar Archipelago tour operator because he will be able to specifically recommend a program custom-tailored to match your character and expectations.

Deciding what’s best is crucial for your boat trip experience because getting exactly what you wanted out of a holiday is what it is all about.
