Full description
First, you will cruise towards the 18th Century fortress of Lesendro. You will see breathtaking scenery with birds, especially cormorants and seagulls, but if you are lucky enough you will get to see pelicans as well, they love drying their wings on top of her walls, with the beautiful mountain of Vranjina and light blue sky in the backgrounds. After cruising near the fortress of Lesendro you will proceed inside the small and narrow channels that are surrounded by, as we like to call them, carpets of water lily flowers and reeds. This area is often called the 'safari' part of the lake. In this area if you are lucky enough, you will have the chance to even see some nests and baby birds. The boat will then cruise around three beautiful islands - Small Cakovica, Big Cakovica, and Lipovnjak. The boat will than proceed inside the breathtaking fjord Pavlova Strana, which is considered to be the most beautiful place on Skadar lake. It will lead you to an old fisherman's village called the river of Crnojević. Over there you will have around an hour to explore the village.  On the way back the boat will stop at a place surrounded by open water and rough coast and you will have extra time provided for swimming, so be sure to bring your swimsuit.

This tour is a must have if you plan on visiting Montenegro. Our tour guide was Slavko. He was very easygoing, kind and funny and told us funny/interesting stories out of his life in Montenegro. We saw many beautiful places, had good talks, food and alcohol tasting. The tour was totally worth the price

We missed our basic expedition because we arrived 5 minutes late due to road construction. (Be on time is very important). I am removing a star because we tried to reach the agency and notified Get Your Guide but nothing was done. However, once there, the representative offered us another boat tour which was very pleasant. The price was not the same, so to compensate, he offered us an hour of paddleboarding when nothing forced him to do so. I think he understood our disappointment and the compensation was very pleasant. We were amazed, it was very nice to see the animals, the carpets of water lilies. I personally did not try to jump in the lake or I saw snakes bathing there but we offer you the possibility. To do if you want to discover this must-see in the country.

War eine total entspannte Tour über den See. Da das Wasser zu niedrig war, konnte man nicht den ganzen Fluss aufwärts fahren und sind aus den 6 Stunden 3 geworden. Das Geld ist entsprechend erstattet worden. Klosterbesichtigung und erfrischendes Schwimmen bei 27 Grad Wassertemperatur sind nur zu empfehlen. Zum Abschluss ein Gläschen Wein….
