Šibenik or Vodice: Kornati Archipelago Day Tour by Speedboat

1. Šibenik or Vodice: Kornati Archipelago Day Tour by Speedboat

Enjoy a day on the water exploring the islands and beaches of Kornati National Park, the Kornati archipelago in Croatia. Get picked up from locations in Vodice, Šibenik, or from Šibenik’s Solaris Hotel Ivan and choose between a group tour or a private tour. After checking in with the crew at your meeting point, prepare to enjoy panoramic views of the St. Anthony Channel and Šibenik islands on the way to the Kornati archipelago. First, stop at Mana, one of the many islands in the Kornati archipelago. Marvel at views of the cliffs from the sea, a wild beach, and clear water. Continue your journey through the archipelago by visiting the next island, Levrnaka. On Levrnaka sits Lojena Beach, the only real natural sandy beach on the Kornati islands. The boat will leave you on the northeastern side of the island, next to a restaurant in case you would like to have some coffee or food. Lojena Beach is within walking distance of the restaurant. Next, marvel at the cliffs of Dugi island before getting to Kapri island where you will have a break for lunch. Relax and enjoy fresh local food served right next to the sea in a local konoba serving fresh, Dalmatian food. Finally, visit Zlarin. Due to its geographical position, the island is seen as St. Anthony Channel’s gatekeeper and the guardian of Šibenik. Use your free time to enjoy the pebble beaches with sand under your feet as soon as you enter the sea. Just before sunset, head back to the starting point of the tour.

Today I was allowed to experience Croatia from the water. With Roko and Karlo as skippers, we took a speedboat to Kornati! Punctual departure from the port, friendly welcome and many stops for beach, sunbathing, sightseeing and lunch. The highlight was swimming in a secluded, deserted bay, including snorkeling! Hey, the boys can do what they do! Gladly again and highly recommended! Kathrin, 10.8.2022 Sibenik

The trip with Roko and Karlo was great! We had just enough time to see everything we wanted to see on the islands and the trip on speedboat itself was a great experience! Totally Worth the price! As there is a plenty of time on the beautiful beach i would suggest to bring snorkling equipment and shoes for water as i forgot about that and that was a pity!

It was the best part of the entire trip, just great! Supervisors Karlo and roko were also super, very friendly and helpful! Listen and provide answers to your questions. Was a great trip

Speedboat trip at the top with Roko and Karlo. We were a family with two children aged 10 and 3. Everything went very well, we even saw two dolphins

Very nice tour, we really enjoyed It! Thanks to the skipper Roko and Karlo, who guided us through all the best spots of the Kornati park.
