Very nice tour, takes 3 hours there and back, definitely take a jacket with you, food is provided on the boat and wine flows too. It's a pity that you can only spend 2 hours on Kornati island. Recommended!

Nice tour, friendly and helpful staff. We eat on board lunch and snack in the afternoon, there is a bar on board. I recommend as a trip to see the Kornati islands

Very nice tour with many breathtaking insights into the nature of the Kornati and Telaśćica A longer stay at the first stop could be planned for future tours.

Great tour to very beautiful remote islands, really friendly team on the boat! Included breakfast, lunch and a few drinks. The fish for lunch was amazing

Very good organization, nice and helpful staff. And most importantly - amazing views. I recommend!
