Nice cruise, crew stopped at a mussel farm and took mussels on board and cooked them fresh for the passengers - was delicious! Your music (Croatian hits) was a bit too loud for me, so on the way back we sat further away from the speakers on the sun deck (still with shade), that was great! The climate on the ship was very pleasant due to the wind, but it was a bit too hot at the waterfalls of Krka itself. There was enough time for the stay to hike along the circular route (not barrier-free, not suitable for prams). At Krka it was very crowded, on the ship it was ok. Guide was very nice, knowledge of German was limited, some information on tape, although not the entire text was translated for the German version (English was more detailed). Overall I can recommend the excursion, we had a lot of fun!

A phenomenal trip. We found it by accident, but it was definitely worth it. A boat trip, fresh, deliciously prepared mussels and a visit to the beautiful Krk National Park - all this is included in the price of the ticket and, of course, there is no shortage of a wonderful captain who takes care of the cruisers and creates an atmosphere on the ship. I highly recommend ❤️

It was a very nice trip. The organizer has really thought about it. There was a welcome schnapps and a portion of freshly prepared mussels on the way back. You have enough time in the national park to explore the area around the Skradinski Buk. But you really only see the southern part of the park.

A great pleasure: The boat is very stable, which is a big advantage for me, who is not so fond of sailing. The staff is very friendly. Refreshments can be purchased on the tour.

Nice trip, lots to see on the boat trip up to the fantastic Krka NP
