Krk Island: Half-Day Boat Trip to Five Islands

1. Krk Island: Half-Day Boat Trip to Five Islands

Discover the most beautiful parts of the Northern Adriatic islands on this boat trip. First, there is a 1-hour visit to the Košljun island where a Franciscan monastery and an interesting museum are located. This is a culture and history center where St. Francis monks live and it's open to all guests to explore. In this 1-hour stop you will be able to visit the 3 beautiful museums, an old church, chapels in the woods, an olive garden and a souvenir shop. Please ensure to bring some cash with you (the entry fee for the island is 30kn for adults and 15kn for kids), and keep note that on this island we do not stop for swimming. After the visit of the monks island Košljun, we sail back to Punat port to pick-up our other guests for this trip. Depart from the beautiful bay of Punat in direction of the old town of Krk. See the beautiful old city core and its ancient citadel from the deck of your boat. Sail towards Cres island where you will be able to watch the griffon vulture birds in the protected nature reserve, for which this region is well known. Head towards stunning, tall (30 meter high) cliffs on the island of Plavnik.  Cruise to the magical Blue Cave where you will have the chance to take a swim into its azure blue waters. Your next stop is the island of Kormat where you will watch the feeding of seagull birds and, with a little bit of luck, watch dolphins play near the boat. Last but not least you will see 2 divine bays of Krk: Golden Bay and Fox Bay. Marvel at the untouched nature on the far south side of the island, accessible only by boat or ship.  Swiming in the turquoise waters and sunbathing on the pebble beaches will feel like a dream. With that, you will conclude your tour as you sail back to Punat port.

It was simply one of the most exciting experiences of my life. Very well organized, beautiful places, we swam and visited spectacular beaches and caves. The captain is a great person! I will always carry in my heart the image of him taking my hand to encourage me to cross the Blue Grotto where I was afraid to swim. It opened my heart. I was moved, but even if not everyone is extremely emotional like me, I'm sure it will arouse the same joy in everyone. ABSOLUTELY RECOMMENDED! Thanks to the whole crew.

We liked it very much. The captain Toni was very funny and friendly, as well as his 2 boys who helped. We ordered lunch from him, which unfortunately got mixed up due to his chaotic nature and we got something different than what we had ordered. However, that didn't bother us that much and on the whole I would recommend this tour to everyone.

The ride was beautiful. We stopped 3 times to swim and watched dolphins. The captain was very friendly and the food was delicious on board. Is also something for children, I can only recommend.

Was great! Really to recommend. It was a lot of fun, the team is really very friendly, especially the captain and Ivan. Everything perfect!

We had a wonderful day with many highlights. The crew was very friendly and accommodating. Our 10 year old son liked it. I loved the music
