  • From Zadar: Kornati National Park Full-Day Boat Trip

    1. From Zadar: Kornati National Park Full-Day Boat Trip

    Visit the jewel of the Adriatic Sea on a full-day tour to Kornati National Park, departing from Zadar. Leave in the morning and make your way to the park via boat. Enjoy breakfast as you travel to the 109 islands that make up the park.  During the tour, you will stop for 3 hours to go swimming. Then relax as you are taken on a tour around the park, checking up the dramatic karst-limestone formations that tower around you. In the middle of the day, you will also be treated to lunch.

    Great boat trip, good mix of swimming and hiking. Food was good for the price of the tour. Free Croatian wine was a nice touch, sometimes the guided tour information was difficult to hear.

  • Dubrovnik 3-Hour Sea Kayaking Tour with Snack

    2. Dubrovnik 3-Hour Sea Kayaking Tour with Snack

    This Dubrovnik Sea Kayaking Tour begins with a safety briefing at the park below Pile Gate before you head off with your guide across the channel and around the cursed Island of Lokrum. You’ll make several stops at points of interest along the way. On the 2.5-3 hour tour you’ll be accompanied by a guide that speaks excellent English and is very familiar with the coastline around Dubrovnik. Learn about the curse of the island and the history of Dubrovnik, previously known as Ragusa. Stop at one of the only hotels that was not rebuilt after the war. The hotel was the site of hand-to-hand combat between the Serbian and Montenegrin armies and the Dubrovnik defenders during the war. Spend around 30 minutes at the only beach in Dubrovnik that’s not accessible on foot, and explore a fascinating cave. You can swim, snorkel, explore the cave, relax, eat, or sunbathe. Later you'll continue back...

    Great tour with lots of interesting facts about the town. I would surely recommend it! A friend liked it so much, he did the tour twice in two days.

  • From Split and Trogir: 5 Islands and Blue Cave Day Trip

    3. From Split and Trogir: 5 Islands and Blue Cave Day Trip

    Visit 5 of Croatia’s islands in style with a fun-filled day trip by speedboat. Head on an adventure where you explore caves, swim and snorkel, and discover Dalmatian towns.  Choose either Trogir or Split as your starting point. And best of all, choose from either a small-group or private experience.  Cruise on a 90-minute speedboat journey to reach your first stop, the Blue Cave. Explore the cave in a small fishing boat as you take in its famous crystal blue waters.  Next up is a visit the island of Vis for you to explore the village of Komiža in 1 hour of free time. Discover the traditional Dalmatian fishing village with its narrow streets, pebble beaches, and inviting promenade.   Swing by Stiniva Cove next, accessing the cove at the sunniest time of the day for a quick 15-minute dip. Then head to Budikovac Island for your next activity: snorkeling and swimming in the Blue Lagoon....

    This experience was fantastic, and would happily do it again. The first stop was the blue cave which was stunning, the initial speedboat ride to get there was long so be prepared, but fun! The next stops were beautiful and we were there just the right amount of time. The blue lagoon was nice, but overrated I think and the beach is pebbled so a bit rough on the feet. We were lucky as we had perfect weather which made the boat ride perfectly fine but I can imagine it could be pretty rough weather dependant. Would definitely recommend this trip and Mario and Elena were fantastic.

    This was an amazing activity. The views were breathtaking, the rapids were enjoyable and not daunting and the instructor was funny and very friendly. The cliff jumping was at 5 metres so not too bad. We got some great pictures and made some unforgettable memories!

    Start your tour with complimentary pick-up from your hotel or nearest possible location to your accommodation in Dubrovnik from 07:00 AM to 07:45 AM. Once everyone has been picked up, drive by bus or van to the Croatian/Montenegrin border crossing.

    The bay of Kotor and the cities of Perast and Kotor are wonderful - well worth the trip! It's a long day, and the border crossings make it longer, but I do recommend this excursion.

Amazing trip. The timing was perfect for both locations, not too long and not too short. Our guide was very communicative and gave great advice and suggestion. Everything went super smoothly despite the marathon blocking most of the road in Split. I would highly recommend this trip for people young and old.

It was very well organized and our tour guide, Rudi, was fun and knowledgeable. There was plenty of time to walk around and take pictures in Krka National Park and Primošten.

Wonderful 4 hour boat trip around the islands around Zadar. In between, we took a dip in a beautiful bay. Friendly captain!

Jolie balade avec notre guide Mattia qui nous a raconté l histoire de Dubrovnik au fil de l activité.

Dennis and Andro were so friendly and it was a lovely day
