On excursion: Plitvice Lakes from Zadar Every Day
It was such a lovely trip on the sailing boat. It was very simple to book the tour. We've got quick response by mail and also a confirmation. We paid on the boat, also easy.
We were picked up at the hotel in time by a small bus. Arrived at the boat the skipper welcomed us and we started the trip.
He was friendly....could have been a little bit more communicative, but if we asked him something he explained us.
We had so much fun and it is so relaxed to sail only with a small group of 8 people. So no stress and noise...only the sea and the wind!
Thank you for this day! We enjoyed it really a lot!

On excursion: Half Day Sailing Trip in Zadar Canal
It was a very nice experience with this company. The staff was very friendly. Within 1 day we managed to explore the island, swim in the salt lake, have a lunch on the island, sail to the quiet bay and swim and jump from the yacht.. Our skipper Peta gave us some advice on how to explore the island so it would be done in the most efficient way.. Overall we absolutely loved the trip and would definitely do it again with the same company! :)
