Tours to National Park Kornati from Zadar
The booking process was easy. We prefered to pay in the booking office close by the port we took off. The driver picked us up from a hotel in zadar. The skipper was a young guy but very capable what he was doing. Altogether we were 9 people on the ship inkl. skipper. Great bunch of people. Great day.
We would suggest to offer drinks on board and to get some information about sailing skills and the sailing boat.
Altogether we would book the tour again.
