We chose Golden Frog (now called Sakdar Lake Cruise) because of the excellent reviews and we weren't disappointed. Ivana and captain were fantastic hosts and we had a wonderful 4 hours exploring the lake's wildlife on their charming boat. I'd recommend you book a minimum of 3 hours and start early (7 or 8am) to get the most from the... More

Encouraged by the overwhelmingly positive reviews here we arranged a lake cruise with Ivana. The next morning she welcomed us to the boat (it had a Golden Frog logo) but it turned out that she went with another boat guiding a different group and our boat had a different guide. The girl who was our guide was truly disappointing. While... More

We boarded the boat at 6PM tonight as we wanted to experience the sunset at the lake. I went with my wife and three children, ages 8-11. Ivana was our guide. It was absolutely amazing. The swimming at the lake was the best swimming experience of my life. You can't really describe how beautiful this is. Tranquility as far as... More

Golden Frog has the best ratings of all the boat cruises - and for a good reason. Not only does she know everything about the lake, she speaks perfect English and really goes her way to provide not only a boat trip but a fantastic experience. On a peaceful 3-hour trip she offered us breakfast that her mom had prepared... More

What a wonderful trip we had on the Golden Frog cruise! Ivana is such a sweet and knowledgeable girl. She is clearly passionate about bird life and it shows through the detailed knowledge she imparts, in perfect English, to her guests. The two hour cruise includes home baked goodies made by her mother and some local wine as well as... More

Skarder lake is beautiful and remains unspoilt so big credit to the villagers for not exploiting / ruining it. We are not twitchers but our 3 hour cruise (including a monastery and 2 swim stops) was really lovely, even our 17,19 & 21 year olds really enjoyed it. Loads of boats to choose so why this one. Well it's all... More
