  • From Zadar: Kornati National Park Full-Day Boat Trip

    1. From Zadar: Kornati National Park Full-Day Boat Trip

    Visit the jewel of the Adriatic Sea on a full-day tour to Kornati National Park, departing from Zadar. Leave in the morning and make your way to the park via boat. Enjoy breakfast as you travel to the 109 islands that make up the park.  During the tour, you will stop for 3 hours to go swimming. Then relax as you are taken on a tour around the park, checking up the dramatic karst-limestone formations that tower around you. In the middle of the day, you will also be treated to lunch.

    Great boat trip, good mix of swimming and hiking. Food was good for the price of the tour. Free Croatian wine was a nice touch, sometimes the guided tour information was difficult to hear.

  • From Split and Trogir: 5 Islands and Blue Cave Day Trip

    2. From Split and Trogir: 5 Islands and Blue Cave Day Trip

    Visit 5 of Croatia’s islands in style with a fun-filled day trip by speedboat. Head on an adventure where you explore caves, swim and snorkel, and discover Dalmatian towns.  Choose either Trogir or Split as your starting point. And best of all, choose from either a small-group or private experience.  Cruise on a 90-minute speedboat journey to reach your first stop, the Blue Cave. Explore the cave in a small fishing boat as you take in its famous crystal blue waters.  Next up is a visit the island of Vis for you to explore the village of Komiža in 1 hour of free time. Discover the traditional Dalmatian fishing village with its narrow streets, pebble beaches, and inviting promenade.   Swing by Stiniva Cove next, accessing the cove at the sunniest time of the day for a quick 15-minute dip. Then head to Budikovac Island for your next activity: snorkeling and swimming in the Blue Lagoon....

    This experience was fantastic, and would happily do it again. The first stop was the blue cave which was stunning, the initial speedboat ride to get there was long so be prepared, but fun! The next stops were beautiful and we were there just the right amount of time. The blue lagoon was nice, but overrated I think and the beach is pebbled so a bit rough on the feet. We were lucky as we had perfect weather which made the boat ride perfectly fine but I can imagine it could be pretty rough weather dependant. Would definitely recommend this trip and Mario and Elena were fantastic.

    This was an amazing activity. The views were breathtaking, the rapids were enjoyable and not daunting and the instructor was funny and very friendly. The cliff jumping was at 5 metres so not too bad. We got some great pictures and made some unforgettable memories!

    One of the best waterfalls I have seen. The drive with George, our driver, was fun. He told us so much about Croatia and split on the way. On reaching the Plitvice lakes, we met our local guide Bijlana who showed us around and also told us some facts about the place. She made sure we had enough rest while walking but also did not miss any beautiful spot of the national park. I highly recommend this trip .

    Start your tour with complimentary pick-up from your hotel or nearest possible location to your accommodation in Dubrovnik from 07:00 AM to 07:45 AM. Once everyone has been picked up, drive by bus or van to the Croatian/Montenegrin border crossing.

Next, drive to the historic city of Mostar to explore the old town and see the famous Old Bridge over the Neretva River. Take a short walking tour with a local guide and learn more about the town and its monuments. Benefit from some free time to explore on your own and enjoy a local meal.

    This is a long tour = 12 hour day. Mostar can be hot in summer. Maria the tour guide does a great job with Dubrovnik Select Tours. Bus tends to be small, not so comfortable for long rides, but good value overall.

Amazing trip. The timing was perfect for both locations, not too long and not too short. Our guide was very communicative and gave great advice and suggestion. Everything went super smoothly despite the marathon blocking most of the road in Split. I would highly recommend this trip for people young and old.

Great trip with great guide! Would definitely recommend the shoes they offer. Climbing, swimming, rappelling with the ropes were the best. All jumps are optional! I would recommend everyone to challenge themselves!

It was very well organized and our tour guide, Rudi, was fun and knowledgeable. There was plenty of time to walk around and take pictures in Krka National Park and Primošten.

This was an amazing day trip. Perast is stunning and we loved the boat ride to Kotor. Definitely recommend if you have a little extra time in Croatia.

Easy to find pick up point, walking at Krka is on a well made walk way. Does involve climbing up some steps but nothing too strenuous.
