What shall I see

We depart at 8 am from Borik Marina and return at 6 pm to the same location.

Our program differs from all the others with the fact that all of our events are WITHIN the boundaries of the National Park Kornati (even after 2 hours of boat riding). At the entrance to NP Kornati (from the ship of Plava Laguna), we observe high slopes of numerous islands with various shapes of animals, people, and different other things. Our way there leads us to the island of Mana, where we have about 2 hours long break for swimming and snorkeling on 2 beautiful beaches. On the same island, there is an old cinematographic colony, where one can make excuisite photos, and take in a wonderful panorama of Kornati Islands System.

After the break, we go back by a different route to the Captain's House, alongside the island of Kornat. From the ship, one can see a small church from the 13th century, and the tower of Toreta from the 10th century. Captain's House is situated on the island of Kornat in a small community of only 7 fishermen houses. Wonderful tranquility reigns over that area, for none of the ships come there. In the homelike ambient of the house of our Captain Igor, we organize a dinner in the shade of centennial olive trees. They provides us with shelter and oil for every day consumption. For a main meal, we serve fish and fried meat, mixed salad and fruits as a dessert. Wine that one can drink during the entire day of the trip is made in the basement of our Captain and of very fine quality. Sodas and other soft drinks are at hand as well.

The view to Kornati was amazing... Stop in rocky beach, with beautiful water. Crew was friendly. Food nothing special but ok. I can recommend.

Happy to visit booking process: very easy to complete online; however, it is not an instant book process as they need to then get confirmation from the tour operator/ host. So we received confirmation about 12 hours later, which was fine because we were not in a rush, but this may be problematic for some people. Happy to visit were prompt with their email replies though to update us. Meeting/ pickup: it only gave us the option to meet outside of the old town, but on the way we collected 1 other couple from Old Town Zadar, we would've preferred this option as we were not travelling with a car and has to Uber to the pickup point in the morning, however we were kindly allowed to be dropped off at Old Town Zadar at the end of the tour which was very helpful The guide/ captain: our lovely host on the boat spoke 4 languages, she was friendly and funny. She explained about the sites, history and Geography as we sailed by which was very helpful. The captain of the boat was a very safe one and we encountered a storm at sea on our way back and I believe he handled the situation very well and kept us all safe. All crew/ staff were great - no complaints! The boat: it had about 3 dozen people and not 12 like some people advertised but it was big enough to accommodate everyone on board, however social distancing in light of covid was NOT possible - so something all yours in Croatia right now should maybe improve on/ limit numbers for safety.. otherwise it was a beautiful boat, the best part being the bow - sitting up front you had an amazing view and we're close to the water and had the fresh sea air in your face and had the most fun going over waves! If you're not comfortable on boats sitting inside may be more comfortable, but I grew up on/ near the sea and loved sitting in the very front outside on the boat! The tour: 5/5 for the tour and stops. The route the boat takes allows you to take in wonderful scenery and you have two stops, one to explore a non inhabited island that has an old movie set making it look like there was an ancient village and it has stunning cliffs and gorgeous water to swim in. We then stopped on Kornati itself for a delicious homemade lunch! The setting under olive trees was just beautiful and we also had time to swim after lunch! The food was delicious and serving sizes generous - grilled pork, so tasty and an entire grilled fish - was one of my favourite parts :) Pros/ cons: no covid measures or social distancing possible Pros - everything else! I'd recommend this your for sure!

This tour is amazing! An amazing family business with personal touches and such great knowledge! We have family members with significant food allergies and they were SO accommodating! The tour was great and beautiful! The lunch was SO good! Fish and pork in such a beautiful location. The boat wasn’t packed with people which was so nice. Such personal touches. Will do it again Hvala!!

First of all, the communication with Happytovisit was not good. We place an online order at 11:00, but did not have confirmation before 19:00. We heard "I will call you back in 5minutes" a couple of times. The ship was quite crowded, but I guess that's to be expected in the season. There was no wifi on board. The breakfast was very simple (two slices of bread with ham and cheese) and served a bit late, at 9:45. There were quite a few people smoking on board and they didn't mind kids that were around. But this seems to be quite common even on terraces of restaurants in Croatia. The cruise itself is very nice, but it 3hours is quite a long time and I would not recommend it for kids aged 5 or younger. After 3 hours we got to Mana, a nice island of Kornati. This was the highlight of the trip, you could go snorcheling, jumping off a cliff or for a short but scenic walk. On a way back we made a stop for lunch, which was quite simple too (fish, pork and cabbage) but they can only rely on supplies that were shipped in the very same day (including drinking water), so it is not surprising. You can order some bad coffee too. Staff was nice and friendly. On the way back, waves were unusually high so few people were a bit worried, take this into consideration if you plan to go with smaller kids. We arrived 30minutes later, but this may have been due to stronger wind on that day.

Dear Zuzana,

We thank you for taking the time to leave a review.
Regarding the communication with us, I apologize for the delay in the confirmation, as we want to make sure that every reservation is received by our supplier, we were waiting for their confirmation which came at 7pm. We do try to get the confirmation as soon as possible, but sometimes despite our efforts (sending emails and calling them) it takes some time for our supplier to reply.

Super expérience lors de notre excursion au parc kornati. Excursion très bien organisée (place réservée sur le bateau, repas copieux et de bonne qualité servi à l'ombre des oliviers sur une île appartenant à la famille du capitaine). Nous avons pu nous baigner dans une petite crique (mer transparente et bleue turquoise) tout en nous isolant des autres passagers.
