Zadar: Full-Day Sailing Trip to Kornati

2. 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, of which the small rock slab of Taljurić is the most extraordinary. Continue to Lake Mir in the southwestern part of the park. The salt waters of the lake derive from the underground canals that connect it to the sea. Archaeological excavations made in the area indicate the place was inhabited in the earliest periods. On the return journey, go to Stene (also known as the "Devil`s Cliffs"). Marvel at the vertical cliffs that rise up to 61 meters from the sea. They spread from Mrzlovica Cape on the northwest to the slopes of Veli Vrh on the southeast.

The cruise was very pleasant, nice views and additionally, we were pleasantly surprised by lunch - large portions (additional help possible), wine and drinking water, all delicious and the prices in the bar very affordable National Park, where we had almost 3 hours of free time, is definitely worth seeing - the views from the cliff are breathtaking and swimming in the warm water of the salt lake is an additional attraction

3 hours sailing on the motor along beautiful islands to national parc telascica, where you can swim in the saltwater lake, admire the high cliffs or just have a drink at the bar. On the way back a swimming stop in a beautiful bay and then set sail for 2 hours of sailing. Very friendly, experienced skipper who knew a lot about the area. Had a great day.

Cool trip with skipper Luca who explained lot. Most with motor but even nicer than with a big boat. And dolphins were seen! In nature park, the cliffs are really impressive and worth to be seen! The salt lake....is a lake. Nice, but not more. On the way back wind was okay so that sailing was possible. At least a very fine day and recommendable trip.

We had a very nice day! Our skipper Mario was great: nice, funny and he told us the story and anecdotes. There were 7 of us on the sailboat, there is plenty of room, we can even sit at the front of the boat. We sailed with the engine and also with the sail, it was really nice.

Great way to visit the islands in a limited group. For those who are not used to, a full day on the boat is quite tiring
