Overview

Spend an unforgettable day at sea and visit the island of Rab and the islands of Grgur and Goli! Enjoy the swim stop on the beautiful sandy beach of San Marino on the island of Rab and in the bay Lisicnjak, one of the most beautiful beaches between Punat and Stara Baska, accessible only by sea. You can also swim on the islands of Grgur and Goli, which we will visit and get to know their interesting and difficult history. 

On this trip we will touch the shores of 4 so different islands - Krk, Rab, Goli otok and Grgur, swim on 4 beautiful beaches, learn a lot about history, and most of all enjoy the magnificent and so diverse nature. Encountering fallow deer and a colony of seagulls is also a special experience, and with a little luck, you may also encounter dolphins that live here as well as griffon vultures that nest on the shores we pass. This trip is extremely rich and an unforgettable experience for the whole family.

We will set sail in the morning at 9:00 from Punat and in an hour and a half, we will arrive on the island of Grgur where we will stay for about an hour. On the island of Grgur, you can take the opportunity to take a short walk with the captain to learn about the history of the island, which during communism served as a prison island for women - political prisoners. Today, the islet of Grgur is known for the fallow deer that live there and that you will probably meet and be able to feed, which is always a special experience.

We continue sailing to Goli Otok, about half an hour away. Goli otok occupies a special place in the collective memory of Croatia. It was a notorious penitentiary for political prisoners from 1949 to 1988. We will stay on Goli Otok for 2 hours, during which time we will visit an abandoned prison with a guide. On Goli Otok, we also have lunch and a break for swimming. This is a very interesting opportunity to get to know an islet that fascinates with its striking raw beauty - it is called Goli (naked) for a reason - it is almost devoid of vegetation due to exposure to the strong wind - bura. Goli otok leaves a strong impression primarily as a witness of the times. A visit to Goli Otok always leaves a deep impression!

After visiting Goli otok, we continue to the island of Rab, which, unlike Goli otok, is very green and covered with forests. It will take us about 20 minutes to reach the famous sandy beach of San Marino where we have planned to stay for about an hour and a half for swimming. Swimming on this famous and beautiful sandy beach is a real pleasure…

After San Marino and the island of Rab, we return to the island of Krk, along the way we pass the small island of Galun where you will have the opportunity to feed a colony of seagulls that live there. The moment when we are surrounded by a flock of seagulls is very special and unforgettable…

We are now sailing along the west coast of Krk, known for its unique beaches, accessible only from the sea. We have chosen Lisičnjak Bay for you, where we have a break for swimming for about half an hour. You will enter the sea through the ladder from the ship. Swimming on Lisičnjak is a true delight and a great way to complete this extraordinary trip. 

The price includes: boat ride, lunch (meat or fish) and a guided tour on Goli Otok. The trip is organized on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays.

Bellissima escursione, si riesce a fare il bagno in posti incantevoli dove altrimenti sarebbe impossibile andare senza barca, durante la navigazione il panorama è meraviglioso. il capitano fornisce spiegazioni in tutte le lingue. Il pranzo (pesce alla griglia) ottimo e cotto alla perfezione. Peccato che le varie soste non possano essere un pò più lunghe ma è cosi che si riesce a vedere diverse cose. Escursione che consiglio, assolutamente adatta a tutti.

We bought our tickets personally in the officwe. The staff was helpful and everything went smoothly. The trip was fantastic, we met with a fallow deer, visited the prison island, saw dolphins!!! and I could jump from the top of the boat to the sea when we took a break in one of the small bays. There is only one remark: we had to wait almost one hour for the lunch (which was delicious), so there were not enough time to get around on the prison island. Otherwise I highly recommend this trip.
