Our guide was welcoming and full of knowledge about the local area. He also offered the group flexibility in the timings spent at each location, which meant the tour didn't feel rushed. The first stop was a beautiful bay where we were able to swim and snorkel, then we went on to the town of Precko where there were opportunities to swim and get lunch. Finally, we circled round Zadar on the way back. The half day tour suited us as we only had limited time in Zadar, therefore, I would highly recommend.

We booked this tour based on the reviews. We expected something different. We didn't have a Boris - instead we had a Luca. He tried very hard. However, one must say that one goes swimming. Otherwise you drive along the coast and end up on a small island. This is beautiful and from there you can take a rowing boat to the Franciscan monastery. Here it must be said that this is associated with additional costs. Overall it was a nice afternoon. Even if we imagined something different under the descriptions.

We really enjoyed our boat trip, despite the storm. Boris was calm, reassuring and skilled at handling the boat. We stayed a little longer on Osljak island to allow the storm to pass however our boat trip then continued as planned and wasn’t cut short at all. Boris gave us some information on the history of the islands and suggested walking routes. It was well worth doing and I would definitely recommend.
