Boat tour from Sibenik to Kornati

If there’s one boat tour from Sibenik you have to book, it’s the one that will take you to see Kornati. This majestic national park is a collection of dozens of small islands and islets (more than 150 of them, actually) and is actually the densest group of islands on the Mediterranean.

Therefore, you can see nature’s creativity here in full swing, hopping from one island to another, witnessing amazing cliffs, soaking in some amazing views, and generally enjoying a day out on the sea. With so much to see, going on an organized tour is the perfect way to visit this national park if you’re not planning to rent a boat to go there on your own – you will be taken to its most beautiful parts right away. And believe us when we say that there are plenty of such parts all over the national park. Kornati are indeed something very special, and a trip here will make sure you remember the time when you visited Sibenik for the rest of your life.

Sibenik Riviera boat tour

That being said, the islands of the Sibenik Riviera have plenty to offer, too. Zlarin, Prvić, and Tijat each have a unique story to tell. The first one is probably the most famous of the three, primarily because of its centuries-long tradition of gathering corals. Yes, these fiery-red beauties are inextricably linked to Zlarin, so make sure to pick up a coral souvenir or two while there and to hear stories the locals have to tell about this way of life. Prvić has two incredibly picturesque villages you can visit and loads of wonderful and secluded coves where you can enjoy a swim without having to worry about other tourists. The soothing beauty of nature on the island will simply melt the stress away. Finally, there’s Tijat, a completely uninhabited island with spectacularly clear sea all around it. Therefore, it is another great place for a swim, but you may also encounter some bighorn sheep that roam the island.


Boat tour from Sibenik to Skradin (Krka National Park)

Another great boat tour from Sibenik you can take is the one that takes you to Skradin. The unique feature of this trip is that it takes you inland, towards the east, and not to the open sea. It starts with an opportunity to take a good look at Sibenik from the sea, and then you head towards Prokljan, a very pretty lake halfway towards Skradin. You won’t be able to decide what’s more beautiful, Skradin or the path that leads to it, because you will be sailing through a channel surrounded by lush greenery on all sides. It’s quite a relaxing ride that makes you enjoy and appreciate the beauty of untouched nature.

Once in Skradin, you can choose to go and visit Krka National Park, another stunningly beautiful place. Pay special attention to the amazing waterfalls you can see here. On top of that, the small island of Visovac with a monastery built on it is very much worthy of your attention, too. In short, this trip from Sibenik is a guarantee you will have an amazing and eventful day and that you’ll get to see some of Croatia’s most beautiful places.
