Great day trip with nice guides, good food and a varied program. For the price, the trip is highly recommended. For lunch on the Lim Canal there was a choice of grilled fish or meat (chicken and bratwurst) with coleslaw, tomatoes and bread, which tasted delicious. They even provided complimentary wine and water. The stops in Rovinj and Vrasar are definitely worth a visit. Both swimming in the sea and shopping were possible. Unfortunately, drinks on board are a bit expensive (small water €2.50), which is usually the case. We liked it very much, gladly again!

We can fully recommend the tour. We were greeted with a grappa, that was the first surprise. After the stop in Rovinj there was food. It was perfectly adequate and good too. Who wanted even got a second helping. We stopped for a swim at the pirate cave. The crew kept everyone in a good mood throughout the trip. After the farewell drink (Grappa) we got back to Porec on time.

A great experience! The personnel is very friendly and courteous. The ship was routinely steered and took us to places with dolphins. It is unique to see these animals!!!

Nice tour! In addition to several individual sightings, we finally saw a larger family of dolphins away from the other tour ships. We were very satisfied!

excellent tour. easy to book, loads of space, stayed out longer cos we came across a fabulous pod of dolphins frolicking in the sea. Truly magical
