Whether you want to be a fisherman for a day or just a casual observer, local fishermen will reveal to you the tricks of their trade and share with you some of their most exciting tales of life on the sea.

You will get acquainted with native species of fish, learn about different fishing techniques, props and equipment, taught how to cast a net, a fish trap or a longline and learn how to catch squid at night by lamplight, which is particularly exciting.

Fishermen often exaggerate when telling their tales, but the actual experience of fishing is something entirely different - fishing is not something that should be retold, it must be experienced. Fishing is not only a local  industry, it is also the preferred pastime of the locals as well as a sport, but, primarily, it is a skill whose main purpose in the past was to feed the family.

Apart from fishing, you will also learn about the natural and cultural beauties of the Island of Krk, relax while boating in its waters and enjoy homemade Mediterranean food and specialties of our maritime region.
