  • Zadar: Full-Day Sailing Trip to Kornati

    1. Zadar: Full-Day Sailing Trip to Kornati

    Sail toward the southern part of Dugi Otok Island. This is where the sea embraces Telašćica, whose name derives from the Latin "Telagus" (meaning 3 lakes). Relax on the boat with a book or sunbathe on deck. Enjoy views of the picturesque Mediterranean landscapes along the way. Chat with the skipper if you are interested in sailing and hear all the secrets of their ancient craft.  Upon arrival at Telašćica Nature Park, enjoy some free time to swim and snorkel. Go for a stroll and give a treat to the timid donkeys. There's a donkey reserve within the park and the coastal (or Dinaric) donkey is an indigenous Croatian breed. Currently, there are 14 donkeys living in Telašćica, while the entire area abounds with flora and fauna. The park has 3 smaller bays within its wider area. Telašćica is the largest and best-protected natural harbor on the eastern coast of the Adriatic. It has 5 islets...

    Die Tour hat super Spaß gemacht. Wir sind drei Stunden zur der Insel Dugi Otok gefahren, wo wir an einen Teil des Telascica Naturpark gehalten haben. Dort kann man ganz gut was trinken, zu einem See spazieren, eine Eselfarm anschauen und einen traumhaften Überblick über die Klippen auf der andere Seite der Insel! Das ist ein Muss. Danach ging es dann in eine Bucht wo wir schwimmen gehen konnten. Schnorchel Equipment gab es hier auch und das Wasser war hier auch super schön. Auf dem Rückweg haben wir viel gesegelt und das schöne Wetter weiterhin genossen. Sehr zu empfehlen!

    Enjoy a full-day scenic excursion on a comfortable speedboat through the Zadar channel and around the island of Ugljan towards Dugi Otok, stopping along the way wherever you like.

    We only had one full day in Zadar and couldn’t think of a better way to spend it than to see the islands and gorgeous water. We booked a private tour for a group of four. It was the perfect amount as we could all sit at the front of the boat and see the gorgeous views. Our guide took us to 6 different islands, stopped at an island for an afternoon beer & a local cafe where we had sushi, fish, fried squid & Dalmatian style wine. The food was phenomenal and something we would’ve never experienced without him. Our tour lasted 9 hours and it was simply amazing. We gained knowledge on the history of the area, swam in pristine waters and went on an island hike to name a few of the adventures. Hands down the best excursion we’ve been on. Croatia was beautiful, we hope to be back!

What people are saying about Dugi Otok

It was a great day with lots of activities and wonderful impressions. We had super nice guides who explained a lot and always had something to say about island life, history and residents. The main attraction for us was snorkeling at the shipwreck - great! A thoroughly successful day!

A very nice worthwhile tour. The skipper was very friendly and unobtrusive. Instead of the 2-hour stop on the very tourist island, a stop in a beautiful bay would be more attractive.

The kayaking experience was set up very well and great for all levels of experience. Zoki was an excellent guide.

Well organised trip to the beautiful island of Dugi Otok. Highly recommended.

Everything was well organized. Very friendly and helpful.
