Excursion to the Kornati Islands

Let a knowledgeable and experienced Captain and crew tour you through this Croatian and global gem - Excursions to National Park Kornati from Murter by the boat "Račić".

The Kornat Islands are the densest archipelago in the Mediterranean. Nowhere else in this large sea is such a great number of islands crammed in so little space, approximately 150 islands in an area of 320 square kilometers. Part of the archipelago, roughly two thirds of the land and the sea, is a national park today. The islands of Žut and Sita and their islets are omitted from the Act introducing the highest level of protection, although they belong to the Kornat group - geomorphological, geographical and cultural. After the creation of the national park in 1980, the Islands have been subject to numerous scholarly and scientific investigations, specific to their natural heritage. The studies continue to evolve the knowledge about the geological, meteorological, geographic, biologic and other distinctive characteristics of the Islands. These studies have, to date, identified 537 species of invertebrates, 160 species of fish, one tortoise and three species of mammals, including the monk seal, which is now believed to be extinct.

Murter is the closest populated centre to National park Kornati. Murter is known as the capital of Kornati, as its inhabitants constitute ownership of almost every one of the islands of the Kornati archipelago. Murter’s proximity to the Kornati Park enable excursions from Murter to provide guests with more time: to see more of the breathtaking Park from the boat, to stop for sightseeing at select picturesque locations and more time for a relaxing swim in secluded coves. It is a full day of new and exciting experiences, which guests consistently enjoy and appreciate.
