Boat Tour Reviews

Lovely afternoon

My wife and I wanted to do something special for our anniversary so we decided for this trip. Since we are both very active people, it was thrilling for us cause we did and saw so much of the wonderful Zadar archipelago. We stopped at the very small island of Galevac where we visited an old monastery and spent some time on lovely, sandy beaches in Ugljan, but mostly we were just swimming in the clearest sea and exploring the hidden spots with our snorkeling equipment. It vas truly an afternoon to remember.

- Levi from São Paulo, Brasil - 26/07/2020

Amazing experience

What a terrific trip! My friends and I were staying in Zadar for two days and decided to take this tour. Everything was 5-star quality. Refreshments on board, friendly and knowledgeable captain, no rush, no pressure just pure enjoyment. I recommend this to everyone travelling to Zadar even for just a day.

- Rob from UK - 12/08/2020

A great experience

My family and I took this 4 hour tour and it turned out to be a memorable one for all of us. There were 6 of us all together and the yacht was very safe and comfortable. Our captain was great and it was a thrilling ride for the kids. The beaches and snorkeling spots were awesome. Would recommend the tour to all.
