What people are saying about Zadar County

Great tour with a very nice guide!! We were contacted beforehand with the question of whether we could start at 9 a.m. That suited us well. We got waterproof backpacks and a life jacket. During the tour we made a few breaks to relax on the lonely and secluded beach. We would do the tour again.

Perfect day , great guides Remark : when you more than 1,85 And over 100 kg, go on a diet or take The ocean kajak alone for you
