The trip was amazing and we saw a lot of birds. The sailing took us about 2:30 hours and it was really beautiful and close to the nature. The captain could answer all of the questions and also gave me such a lot of possibilities what to do around the Skadar Lake. We had a really nice talk while waiting for the rest of the group and for the boat. The boat was wooden as I wanted and it also gave a special climate to this trip.

I really recommend them!

Kindest regards from Poland,
Karolina

When you want to sail accross the Skadar Lake, you really shouldn't go with Golden Frog. They are arrogant people who only care for the money.
What you really should do is Kingfisher! You can find them in Vipazar. Then you ask for Jack Sparrow, Vlado. He takes you to the places you want to go. We even get some extra time. We visited a Monestary and met the Priest and the Monks. We even could try some of their homemade rakija.
We went to a private beach, did some swimming, ate and drink something and visited the little church on top of the mountain. Fantastic view by the way over there.
We saw the most beautiful birds and Jack Sparrow even got me a nice Lilly out of the water. He brought drinks for everybody, even wine.
He sailed us to the quiet places, with the most beautiful views. He was very nice to the kids also.
Big big advice, go to Kingfisher and ask for Jack Sparrow, Vlado. Garantueed fantastic trip.

By the way, if you sail with Kingfisher, you get a 10% discount for a nearby restaurant.

So don't go Golden Frog, go Kingfisher.

Be aware where you park your car. Parking is big problem over there and our car was scratched big time. So choose a little walk.

Arriving at Virpazar, we were approached by many companies to take a boat trip with them. Some of them were really pushy, and focussed on getting us on board, rather than on our expectations.
Kingfisher stood out differently: we explained what we wanted and they provided us with a clear explanation of what they could do, without up-selling. We were geven the overview of the bird species we’d certainly see and those we’d possible see given the time of the day.
I can honestly recommend Kingfisher: friendly skippers, knowledgable about birds, drawing the attention to species we might not have spotted ourselves, stopping the boot to allow for better observation and picture taking (or swimming) and with a decent knowledge of the English language allowing good communication. Cakes and drinks offered onboard.
We took the 3 and a half hour tour, which we highly recommend, as you need to go far enough into the lake’s canals to truly see nature’s beauty. For information: we paid 90 EUR for 4 people on a boat just for us.

We booked our Lake Skadar and Rijeka Crnojevica boat trip with Kingfisher based in VIRPAZAR. We were offered a very customer-oriented deal which included free wine and local delicacies while on the boat. The cruise took over 6 hours and was the best experience ever! Our captain, Ilya, was very professional and made us feel welcome, safe and happy! There was never a dull moment. Book with Kingfisher! Do not hesitate for a moment. There is plenty of competition out there, and Kingfisher will stand out for its amazing value for money, professionalism and dedication.

We walked around town first, trying to find a hiking trail around the lake. When we couldn't find any we decided to try to find a boat tour, or we would have travelled all this way without getting to see the lake. At that moment the host of Kingfisher tours approached us and offered a group tour that was just about to leave. After a bit of small talk about where we were from (compliments do work ;) ) we had a good feeling about this company and quickly decided to catch the boat as it was about to leave. And I never regretted that decicion! The tour was amazing, the skipper explained a lot about the area in very good english. August is probably not the best time for wildlife-watching, I don't think it ever is, but we still saw plenty of birds and flowers. We even saw two kingfishers. The view of the larger lake towards Albania and the Lovcen mountains are stunning.
I truly hope Kingfisher stays honest and dedicated in the future, so many more visitors can leave Virpazar with the feeling they have experienced something amazingly unique.

Alexander was the most helpful, pleasant, friendly and informative of all the boat sellers in Lake Skadar, Virpazar! He was funny, kind and trusting and in a place where stray dogs are treated appaulingly, we saw him being gentle and considerate to a poor dog who was doing no harm!

His English is very good and I would highly recommend the service he provides!

Kingfisher was a very good choice! They were very calm, relaxed and honest. They were not pushy and uncomfortable like many other boat trip companies (for example... one company gave us a map and when we decided not to go, they wanted it back...). They also had very moderate prices. I strongly recommend Kingfisher 😁👍🏼

My family and I took a private tour of Lake Skadar with Kingfisher. We set off at 5:15pm on a beautiful August evening in a pretty wooden boat. The Captain was very relaxed, perfect for us. We saw plenty of birds and had a couple of swims before heading back in the golden hour before sunset. We loved the experience.

Peda the owner was extremely helpful and talked us out of a very expensive tour to a more reasonably priced one that ticked every box and more. A must do and cheaper then most of the others in town that will badger you the moment you arrive. Best €10 spent on holiday.
