We spent an amazing day at the beach! The water was unbelievable! The boat trip helped set the day right, offering amazing views of the islands and the staff was really friendly and fun, they even turned the music at a high volume which made the people dance - really nice atmosphere! They do inform you on the boat that there is seaweed in the water and due to its properties it is protected by law, therefore it cannot be cleaned. And anyway, it’s not the gross type of green seaweed, it’s mostly dry and once further in the water it’s not anymore - only a bit at the shore and on the beach (which honestly makes for a soft spot for your beach towels).One remark though: they could offer some vegetarian/vegan options for the food provided as not everyone eats meat - we gave our lunch wraps back and ended up taking the ham out of the breakfast sandwich. We came prepared with our own food anyway so it was no biggie. All in all, it was a great experience and we’ll go again!

It was a great day with lots of activities and wonderful impressions. We had super nice guides who explained a lot and always had something to say about island life, history and residents. The main attraction for us was snorkeling at the shipwreck - great! A thoroughly successful day!

The kayaking experience was set up very well and great for all levels of experience. Zoki was an excellent guide.

Well organised trip to the beautiful island of Dugi Otok. Highly recommended.

Everything was well organized. Very friendly and helpful.
