Full description

Discover some of the most stunning islands in the Kornati archipelago and enjoy a visit to Telascica Nature Park on a full-day boat tour from Zadar that includes breakfast, lunch, and swim stops. Cruise past peaceful bays, rugged cliffs, and rocky meadows while listening to your guide's commentary.

Meet the boat crew in the city harbor in the morning. Depart from Zadar and stop at the ports of Drazenica and Preko (Ugljan island). Soak in panoramic views of Mrtovac, Levernaka, and Mana islands on the way to Kornati. Savor a welcome drink and a sandwich for breakfast.

Sail around the Kornati cliffs while your guide shares its history with you. Upon arrival in Kornati, enjoy 1 hour of free time to explore the island. Don't miss the 6th-century Fort Tureta standing high on Tureta hill, and the Church of Our Lady of Tarac.

Then, get back to the boat to sail onward to Telascica. Tuck into your onboard lunch, with a choice of grilled fish with salad or vegetarian pasta made in tomato sauce, accompanied by wine. As the boat drops anchor at Telascica port, get ready to make the most of your 2 hours in the bay.

Once in Telascica Nature Park, you can walk to the 150-meter-high lookout for stunning views of the Adriatic and the Kornati islands, swim in Lake Mir or the open sea, or simply chill by the catering facilities to sip on cold drinks.

Finally, settle back in for the 3-hour return trip to Zadar, admiring the coastline along the way. If needed, the boat will make stops at the ports of Drazenica and Preko.

Nice boat trip, unfortunately with a different boat than in the photos. In addition, it was a shame for us that there was no vegetarian option for lunch. Ultimately this has been resolved. The swimming stops are in very beautiful places where you can read a book and have plenty of time to discover the area.

The cruise is very nice and the boat is comfortable for you. The natural park of Kornati and Telascika certainly deserve to be seen and I would have appreciated more information from the guide on board about the natural beauties we were visiting (the explanation on board instead lasted about 5 minutes). Good grilled fish (even if cold) and the possibility of having unlimited wine and water on board.

Fun experience seeing the national parks and spending 6 hours on the boat. Although overall I enjoyed the experience because of the places we visited, there wasn’t really a “guide”. The itinerary was quickly explained before the first stop by one of the staff members, but no other information about where we were was given. There also was a general lack of communication with guests. The “welcome drinks” were shots available at the bar that we figured out by context clues. The wine is also at the bar (they only serve you the food). The few interactions I did have with staff were positive though, very friendly. The food also wasn’t great, but for the price, worth it!
