There are many 'konobas' (Dalmatian tavern where you can taste traditional specialities) in Trogir famous for their exquisite cuisine based on fresh fish which is daily caught around the islands Drvenik and Krknjasi, two islands well known not only for the highest quality fish but also for their wonderful sand beaches. From Trogir tourists often choose to visit one or more islands in its surroundings easy to reach by daily ferry connections or you can just drive to the island of Ciovo which is connected to Trogir by bridge.
It is our pleasure to offer you excursions in a traditional wooden ship all up to the north-eastern side of the Drvenik Veli island passing between the main islands and two separate islands of Krknjasi chain.

Also, all the fruit and the vegetables served on this day trip are grown in a bio-ecological production and the wine is homemade, deriving from the grapes grown on the very same wood on which your fish will be grilled.
