An afternoon boat trip to a couple of islands with time to swim and snorkel. This is a small group tour and is a lovely way to spend a sunny afternoon. Our captain was friendly and informative. We visited a tiny island with only 20 houses. We walked round the whole island in 30 minutes. The trip lasts around 4 hours. It starts with a short tour of Zadar sites, like the sea organ, the hotel where Alfred Hitchcock stayed and the city walls. A very enjoyable trip.

Boris was our host for the afternoon and he didn't disappoint. Chatty, personable and informative, he made the trip. A journey around the local islands with stop-offs for walking, stunning views and swimming. A lovely trip with a final visit to a tavern for a beer before retuning to Zadar as the sun set beautifully over the distant hills. Great experience, good customer service and excellent value.
