Imagine a trip to the Kornati Islands where you may be lucky enough to see a peregrine falcon soaring overhead. These islands, off the coast of Croatia in the Adriatic, are home to some of the most stunning scenery you are ever likely to see.
The rocky limestone landscape contains an array of caves and inlets that are just waiting to be explored. The archipelago is the perfect destination if you rent a catamaran in the Kornati Islands with a skipper. You get to lie back and relax as your skipper navigates the craft around some of the 140 islands in the group.
Your skipper can also tell you about the great experiences that you can have such as swimming in the warm Adriatic waters and visiting the nearby Telašćica Nature Park. The Nature Park is the ideal place to get an amazing view of the area and it's located north of the Kornatis, within easy reach of the islands, if you have hired a catamaran with a skipper who knows the area.
Once you arrive at the Telašćica Nature Park, you can head up the cliffs to get the best view. You can then return to your catamaran to continue with your journey. Alternatively, you may wish to take an hour to swim in the waters around the park.
Once you continue with your sail, you can complete your exploration of the Kornati Islands. One of the places you can visit is the island of Piškera. This is now a tranquil and uninhabited place where you can savour the surrounding beauty in a relaxed atmosphere. However, during the Middle Ages, it was an island where fish were collected and stored. The Kornati Islands are very different now than they were then. Fishing is now seriously restricted, so there are many different colours and species of fish to see, in the surrounding waters.
In order to get the best possible experience when visiting islands like Piškera, you need to rent a catamaran that you can rely on. Browsing the catalogues of Sailogy gives you the opportunity to rent a catamaran in the Kornati Islands with a skipper, at a reasonable price.
Having a skipper on board means that you get the benefit of their expertise. They can tell you about the hidden caves and grottoes that you should not miss. They also take responsibility for safely navigating the catamaran around the islands. This gives you and your friends the opportunity to simply relax on deck and enjoy the trip.
Having the experience and knowledge of a skipper to rely on also means that you do not have to waste precious vacation time planning your route around the islands. You just need to tell the skipper what you have in mind and they can help you to have your ideal trip.
This trip will probably include a visit to Kornat. This is the biggest of the islands. Just like all of the other islands, it's uninhabited, although there is a very limited amount of basic accommodation available. Kornat is only 25 kilometres long and 2.5 kilometres wide, so it's easy to get to know the landscape by walking along one of the easy hiking trails.
Choose a catamaran with a skipper from the brochures of Sailogy and you can easily get to Kornat, and the other Kornatis, from the mainland. Choosing this option means that you have more freedom to explore as you wish than you would if you booked a recognised scheduled boat tour. You can see exactly what you want to, throughout the rental period, making the most of your experience visiting the Kornati islands.
