What you'll do

Starting from Fosa Harbour we will sail towards Osljak - the smallest inhabited island in Croatia, and spend some quality time on the island to enjoy the beauties and quietness of the island. After that we will head to island Galevac, small island with the 15th century Franciscan monestary which is only accesible by a small boat. Last but not least is island Ugljan with its beautifull beaches,coctails bars and fresh sea food restaurants. Depending on the weather conditions we also anchor the boat at the island bays for snorkling, swiming or just jumping from the boat.

You will spend your time on a 8m Croatian traditional wooden boat that was built by my relatives in 1972. Your cruise will take place in Zadar canal-nearby island of Zadar. This is a great way to expirience the local islands and its bays where no big touristic ships can not access. This tour is made for up to 6 people; famillies, couples or friends. Do not expect luxury boat, its a 47 years "young" lady. She is steered old fashioned way so you are welcome to try if you wish.

We reserve the right to cancel the expirience in case of:
-bad weather
-minimum number of participans not met -minimum 2 participans.

Six years ago I have decaide to restore my familly wooden boat and show people the beautys of Zadar's nearby island and its gorgeous bays, the places where my friends, familly and I have spend our free time as a getaway from the city life. Now I am happy and grateful to share my experiences with you.

Where you'll be

Every island in Croatia,except the National Park, is conected with the maind land via public transportation, but sand bays and small island like Ošljak and Galevac are best seen and experienced by boat, so majority of our time we will spend at those places.

Terrific all-around experience for us (family of 6: three adults, two kids aged 9 and 6, and puppy). Mate was an amazing guide and we thoroughly enjoyed spending time with him. Communication was flawless prior to booking and Ante was very flexible trying to accommodate our last minute plans. We would love to go out again with Mate and would not hesitate to book another trip with Ante and crew.

A great personalised afternoon with Mate. You go out on his family boat and he gives you lots of options of where you want to go depending on what you want to do e.g. swimming, sightseeing, island hoping or history. Mate really cared for us and did his absolute best to make us feel welcome. He’s a super friendly guy so you’ll have fun as he drives you around a few places. His English is also very good! Thanks mate!
