It was an unguided tour - you spend 8 hours on a boat (if you set off from Petrcane) without being told anything about the beautiful islands you are passing by or the military bunker that you are shown from a distance. The crew didn't follow Covid restrictions as was advertised - 25 on the bottom deck and 25 on the top deck - instead there were 42 on the top deck and a full bottom. We counted more than 70 people on board. The breakfast as is advertised arrives at 10:30 and is a ham and cheese sandwich that one could make in a mad rush at home - moral of the story is eat before you leave for the 7:30 start. The Sakarun beach is not quite as you see in pictures - it is beautifully sandy but is also full of dried up seaweed, meaning that you cannot lie in the sand, the sand is only as seen on pictures when you get 20m into the crystal blue waters. If you want shadow, the beach is not for you, unless you are willing to carry a parasol onto the boat. On the topic of the beach, it is a real shame that you only get 3 hours of beach time after a 4 hour journey to it. The lunch after the beach comes at 15:00 but is actually very pleasant if you take the fish - the fish is gently smoked mackerel with potatoes and grated cabbage that can be improved with salt, pepper and vinegar. You also receive a dry white wine per table, which is easy on the pallet, and a bottle of water. It would be wise to take a jumper as the morning trip gets quite chilly, but the way back under the sun is much warmer. The 8 hours of travel on board the boat would be much more tolerable if there were someone on the speaker system sharing information and guiding the attention of the passengers. Due to this, other passengers spent their time entertaining themselves with the wine and the throwing of fish carcasses for the seagulls. As it is, the 8 hours of travel seem like a waste of time, despite the unexpected sighting of dolphins on our return voyage. When we booked this trip, a travel time of 3 1/2 hours was mentioned, and we assumed that was the total travel time. We would recommend those interested to ask for more clarity than we did when booking, as the aforementioned travel time was only one way without delays. Would not recommend to anyone unless you have children who love boats and can spend 8 hours without becoming restless.

Nice boat ride, pleasant ambience and music, friendly staff ... After arriving at the destination, the tourist train was free to drive to Saharun Beach. The beach is a beautiful, most beautiful beach on the Adriatic Sea. After swimming, we went to an excellent lunch on the boat. My recommendations to everyone for this trip
