Boat Tour Reviews

Love it overall!

star icon star icon star icon star icon star icon

Fantastic trip! The boat is not big, I expected something like a small yacht but it was even smaller, you have to sit down all the way to Kornati islands and back. I am glad they gave us a waterproof coats otherwise it wouldn't be so cheerful after a summer season had gone. We travelled from place to place, saw interesting lakes, rocks and islands, met lots of new and interesting people!!!! Would definitely recommend the trip!

Fantastic daytrip!

star icon star icon star icon star icon star icon

We went for a full daytrip to the islands/national parks of Kornati and Telascica. We liked the variation of the tour the most. The friendly crew of Zadar Archipelago did a very good job helping us and giving us a lot of useful information and tips. If you are in the Zadar/Sibenik region I suggest to take this tour as it gives you a good impression of the islands and highlights. Highly recommended!

Done a full day tour KORNATI ISLANDS & TELASCICA TOUR with kristina the guide and Mario as the skipper and loved every minute of it took us some beautiful locations and explained in depth of different areas and stop offs and because of how good this was I've booked the dugi otok boat tour for a full day and I can't wait 😀

- Scott from Melbourne, Australia - 11/07/2022

Great Excursion

star icon star icon star icon star icon star icon

Great excursion. The boat is very small and fast and you probably travel like 30 miles or more during the day. Do note that the beaches you'll be on are generally rocky so having sturdy sandals or water shoes is probably best to avoid shredding your feet up. Crew was great. Highly recommend.
