On our Brbišćica and Veli Žal tour we take you to the most remote and magical places in the Zadar archipelago - cave Brbišćica with its beautiful bay, and Veli žal beach. These places are situated on the uninhabited side of Dugi Otok and are a precious gem among the beautiful islands of the Zadar archipelago.
You'll be able to swim and snorkel inside the cave, even have a little picnic inside, and feel its special atmosphere privately with your group. The sea around these parts is crystal clear, there is no civilization for miles around you.
On our way, we'll stop in a couple of beautiful bays, where you can relax on a private beach, and enjoy the sun and the quiet. The only thing you'll hear is the waves hitting the pebbly shore.

"This tour was a perfect way to celebrate yearly reunion and celebration of friendship for 6 of us.
Our skipper Toni was an absolute darling, an amazing skipper and a dear company for this customised version of the tour.
The Speed boat Team made sure that all of our wishes for the route have been met, and can confidently say that we managed to get the most and the best out of it.
I highly recommend visiting the Golubinka cave, beach Veli žal, shipwreck near Veli rat and Saharun.
Will definitely book one of the tours again with the Speed boat Team and will continue recommending them.
:) ..don't hesitate- book it already! It is worth it!!"

We had a fantastic day with our skipper Luka! Feeling completely safe with the private boat tour, we experienced a lot of islands of Kornati.
Luka knew the places for a good swim and great lunch! The fish was so fresh. We can really recommend Speed Boat Zadar.
Book it for a whole day. More than worthwhile! Good boats! A day that makes you feel welcome in Croatia😀
Lighthouses and dolphins

My friends and I had the best day of our trip. You must do this tour if you are in Zadar.
Marin was our guide and we had such a great craic with him on the boat. He took us to amazing islands with clear water and great food.
We can't wait to come back and do it again next year.
A touch of the Adriatic
On our half-day tour, we'll take you to the other side of the Zadar channel to visit three different islands situated across from Zadar. Discover the untouched nature of Ošljak, an island with an interesting history, and even more interesting and beautiful nature. Great locations for snorkelling, sunbathing, swimming and chilling. No cars or roads, you'll feel like you are the only one on the island.
The Pitoresque monastic island of Školjić holds many secrets and is perfect for guests of all ages. Pier you can jump from, sand in the water, and loads of interesting stories. Visit famous fishermen from Kali and have a snack in a local fish buffet or have a taste of the real offbeat Croatian way of life in Preko or Poljana. Chill under the pine trees, swim, snorkel, explore the nearby villages or sunbathe on a sandy beach - it's entirely up to you!

The trip was really beautiful!
Our guide was super nice and could answer every question we had. We visited two tiny, very cute islands and had some time to walk around. After that, we wanted to go swimming and the guide brought us to some quiet spots.
All in all the trip was the best idea we had!
On our Skipper's choice tour we'll take you to the best place according to the weather conditions on that day. We'll find the best places for you to swim, sunbathe, snorkel, or just chill. After you get some rest under the pine trees, we'll take you to visit another beautiful bay, and then another... of course taking into account your wishes and commands. We will do our best to make this day perfect for you.
Our skippers know every pebble and rock in Zadar's archipelago. You just have to imagine a place you'd like to be, and we'll take you there. Let the magic and adventure kick in on our Skipper's choice day tour.
These tours last as long as you want and are completly without a timetable and up to your preferences.
Matt reviewed this tour in August 2020:
Awesome experience with this company. The booking was very efficient, Ivan speaks perfect English, communication was first class. Ivan listened to what we hoped to do in our tour and made some suggestions and even arranged to have us picked upfront the jetty at our hotel which saved lots of time and taxi rides.
We had a fantastic day out with Luka as our guide who was very knowledgeable about the islands and local history. There were 4 adults and three children aged 9,6 and 4 and the boat was easily big enough, comfy and fast!
We visited some beautiful places for swimming and snorkelling and had great fun doing some tubing behind the boat ( which we loved, Luka kept it safe but fun for the children and wild for my brother and me!) We stopped for lunch at a special restaurant right on a beach and even got to be nosy and see a superyacht up close.
Luka was a great host, thank you !
