Boat Tour Full Description

Start your boat trip experience with Zadar Archipelago and discover the mesmerizing beauty of the Kornati National Park.

Enjoy a thrilling speedboat ride until you reach the Proversa Shallow Passage, known as the “Gateway to Kornati”. This shallow passage is located between the Island of Katina and the Island of Kornat.

During your Kornati Islands boat tour, you will have a chance to observe a considerable number of different interesting and unique sights, including the Lavdara quarry, Telašćica nature park and more.

Once you arrive to your main location, you will have a time window of several hours, during which you can explore the captivating beauty of Levranka island, also known as “The Pearl of Kornati Islands”.

Located on Levranka island is the Lojena beach, the only sandy beach in the entire National Park, and an ideal opportunity to relax and unwind in a paradise-like atmosphere.

If you want, the local tour guides can help you with taking pictures, as well as introduce you to a popular Dalmatian game, named Picigin. You can also choose to ignore playing Picigin, instead focusing on swimming and snorkeling with lots of different fish schools, as well as hiking to the top of Levranka island & enjoying the breathtaking view of the Kornati archipelago.

When you get hungry, you can eat in the “Konoba Levranka” held by the Ježina family for generations. Using only the freshest of seafood and locally-grown produce, you will be able to taste the true aroma of the Croatian Adriatic.

Once you have experienced Levranka Island in full, it is time to begin the return journey to Zadar. During the trip back, observe interesting landmarks, like drystone walls, grazing Dalmatian donkeys, lots of different lighthouses and more.

Upon arrival in Zadar, your local guide will have one last ace up his sleeve, in the form of “The Greeting to the Sun” and “Sea Organ” installations, both unmistakable Zadar landmarks and an incredible way to end a unique day trip experience with Zadar Archipelago boat tours.

Boat Tour Reviews

An experience like no other!

We booked for half day trip to Kornati and it was an incredible experience! The journey took just over an hour, travelling down the coast before arriving at a small port on Kornati. After a very short walk we arrived at a breathtaking beach, which had no more than 20 people on it. The sea is crystal clear, with the feeling you’ve almost rented a private island! This is definitely the best way to visit Kornati!

- Josh from Canada - 15/06/2019

Loved it!

We wanted to experience Kornati to the fullest and thanks to this tour, we managed to do just that. So many beautiful spots to swim in and the sea is perfectly clear. Only 10 of us on the boat so it was super comfortable. Doing it again for sure :)

- Cohen from Los Angeles, US - 06/08/2020

Unforgettable afternoon

Perfect tour for a short getaway. We had a smaller group, so it was really comfortable on board. Loved the beautiful Lojena beach where we spent most of the time swimming and sunbathing ,and Kornati was breathtaking!

- Matteo from Frankfurt, Germany - 23/07/2020

Thank you

We had a lovely tour with only six passengers. Luca, the guide, was fantastic. Four of us were not sunbathing types so he was very kind and took us to a bar for a gin and tonic! Loved it. Thank you very much

- Nicola from York, UK - 03/09/2019

Amazing trip and great skipper

We booked a private tour as a surprise for my wife’s birthday and it was excellent. The staff were really helpful and informative. The boat was great but most of all the scenery was stunning. After 1.5 hours on the boat we reach a beautiful little beach which was perfect. Can’t thank them enough for an amazing experience, once not to be missed
