Very nice boat tour in a very clean ship with enough space. The boat was not crowded and there was good space. Drinks were available for purchase on the ship itself. The guide was very experienced and the whole crew was very nice. The time was kept almost on time and the stops are optimally chosen. We did the tour with two children and it was a great and unforgettable trip.

All I can say is that everything was great, from the equipment and instructors to the support during the tour and the experience itself. If we are back on Krk next year, the tour will definitely be a highlight of our vacation again.

A very nice experience to experience once, because of the different heights, speed and distances it makes it fun! The guidance was top notch! Well worth it!

The best Zipline ever hands up and all the staff is really friendly and helpful. It was an amazing experience that I would do again and again for sure.

It was just a wonderful little adventure! Would do it again anytime. Good organization with great guides. Thanks for the great experience.
