KORNATI ISLANDS BOAT CHARTERS
The archipelago that makes up the Kornati Islands is located in the Dalmatia region of Croatia and includes approximately 130 islands, islets, and rocks within the Adriatic Sea - just a perfect destination for boat charters. The archipelago gets its name from the largest island of the group, Kornat. The other large islands include Piskara, Kurba Vela, Zut, Sit, Vrgada, and Levrnaka.
The Kornati Islands are a rocky landscape within the blue waters of the sea. Trees are rare and for the most part there is no grass. The islands do have fragrant bushes – Mediterranean scrub – of rosmary, juniper, lavender, thyme, myrtle, and sage. There are no permanent inhabitants, although some Dalmatian citizens have managed to cultivate the land for growing crops of grapes, figs, citrus, and olives as well as for raising sheep.
The real attraction of the islands is what draws the numerous boat charters each year: the way the water touches the rugged land in coves, caves, and inlets. You will have no trouble finding you’re a secluded bay to drop anchor or pathways leading to the edge of a cliff overlooking the sea. SCUBA diving around the Kornati Islands will allow the boat charter guests the opportunity to view amazing marine life and coral reefs. Diving is especially interesting around Rasip and Dugi Otok.
Because of the archipelago’s unique geomorphology and amazing diversity of its marine ecosystem, the area has been made a National Park, as a means to protect the environment. Eighty-nine islands, islets, and reefs are included in the park, yet they make up only a quarter of the park’s size, with the Adriatic and its marine life completing the remaining seventy-five percent.
Nature lovers will enjoy the wealth that a Kornati Islands boat charter has to offer through boating, diving, and hiking.
