The whole trip was 260 kuna, or 34 euro, each with lunch and wine included. Departing at 9am, we took one hour and thirty minutes to arrive at the lagoon. Paullina, the lady marketing the tour on the promenade told myself to get in the lagoon with my group or I would really regret it. I cannot swim and I am afraid of deep water, and the rest of my group are not strong swimmers. The guys on the boat gave me a life jacket, they did not pressure me to do anything I didn't want, and gave swimming advice to other members of my group. You are allowed to jump from the top deck of the boat and the water is unbelievable. I spent half an hour relaxing in the water and it is the first time in 10 years I felt comfortable getting in water out of my depth. The lagoon is great for snorkeling and swimming and socializing with other passengers. We were allowed to bring anything we wanted on the boat so at dinner time we shared around a bottle of vodka with other tourists. On board there was a fridge to store drinks. Dinner was fish (mackerel), chicken (marinated) or vegetarian. Chicken and Mackerel were amazing and we had huge portions of food that were bbq'd in front of us, we were so full we had to leave a lot of food there. Then after lunch we traveled to Maslinica where there is a nice pebble beach, good for snorkeling, where a friend of mine lost his sunglasses in the water. A local Croatian loaned his snorkeling gear to him in order to find his sunglasses immediately. Beers there are cheaper than mainland, about 16 kuna for 500ml draft. There is enough to do in the 2 hours there and we saw the Church of St. Nikolas, walked a trail, had some beers, and swam at the beach. We arrived back on board and had some fun with the Tyson on the boat, played cards and lay in the sun. When we arrived back at port Paullina gave us the best tourist information and advice we received on the whole trip, she really knows the area and is a great person. Best thing we did so far in Croatia.
