We loved the day trip with our amazing guide Borna. Beautiful spots with entertaining boat rides in between. The location for lunch was lovely. Our guide made sure we got to know what we needed to know and always had the necessary beverage or equipment at hand.

The tour was very exciting and Zoran, the guide, was very friendly and funny. He took care of us were well and he was preventive about the weather conditions and our safety. The cave was wonderful and the rest of the experience as well.

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!
Depart from Zadar in the early afternoon and sail across the Zadar Canal towards the island of Ugljan. The boat will dock at Preko, a small island village. You can take a walk around the small port, have a coffee at one of the beach bars, take a swim or visit the nearby islet of Galevac, a green oasis and the location of a 14th-century monastery. Get back on the boat and continue sailing towards a secluded bay where you'll be able to completely relax and enjoy the crystal clear waters of the Adriatic Sea.

It was a really nice tour through the Kornati islands with the speedboat. Our skippers Roko and Andrija were very nice and tried hard. The price was absolutely reasonable for the length of the tour. We started punctually at 8 a.m. and had a total of 4 stays on the respective islands, including swimming. Beautiful nature and crystal clear water, also the cliffs were great. We were also pleasantly surprised by the restaurant. You should take a thin jacket and sunglasses for the wind on the speedboat. This can get very fresh even at 30 degrees. We arrived back at the port of Šibenik punctually at 6 p.m. It was really a great tour.
Roko was a great guide ! We had an awesome day, the restaurant he booked for us was really nice ! The boat is really comfy and we loved having music as we enjoyed the boat ride ! I would recommend him if you are looking to visit the Kornati’s islands Thanks Roko
Roco and his friend were really nice !!! We had extreme waves but he steered the boat like a professional. One can only recommend the tour, great spots and not so touristy. Even my wife's seasickness wasn't bad.
Beautiful trip to the National Park. Very special to snorkel, swimming, walking and sailing along the islands with our friendly hosts Andrija and Roko!
It was definitely worth it. The guide told us some information around it and made the day great
