Damir is a very nice and good skipper. It was a lot of fun and we explored nice bays and islands. Only a little more sailing would have been good. The wind was actually very good (I'm a sailor myself), but apparently on such "trips" sailing is only "shown" briefly...

We had an unforgettable day with our skipper David - the highlight of our vacation. He took us to a great spot for swimming and snorkeling and then we explored an island. The fish at the restaurant on Mali Iz was very good. A really wonderful experience - thank you very much.

A wonderful evening tour at sunset with Sascha, our captain. We felt very comfortable, circled a small island, drank wine, took great pictures of Zadar at night and had nice conversations (Sascha even speaks German). Again and again!

Great experience, especially if you haven't been on a sailing boat like this before. The places you visit are very beautiful and the skipper (the physical education teacher) was a nice person. Boat was very clean

The sailing tour was beautiful and a lot of fun. A real highlight, which I would recommend to everyone! Small group, very friendly owner.
