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!

Exceptional

We have spent the family day in a very comfortable speedboat. It has been a fantastic experience!!! We have been able to enjoy the islands, the sea, the beaches, an incredible meal in a beautiful fishing village and we have also been able to see DOLPHINS !!!! An unforgettable day that we would definitely recommend.

It’s a Must! Awesome tour with skipper Luca

We spent an amazing day on the boat around the nice Zadar islands. We swam in unique bays and had a delicious dinner in a local fish restaurant. Our skipper Luca was very kind and showed us the best places to be. One of the best tours we had. It‘s a MUST DO!

Everything is wonderful. The restaurant that was recommended to us was really good too! We had a great day. We were also able to bring our dog, thank you very much for the nice day, Toni!

We had a super nice day at sea, with great impressions. Marita and Stefan
