      Kingfisher Lake Skadar boat trip

      Excellent boat tour on Lake Skadar
      Would highly recommend the boat trip and Kingfisher. Excellent information was provided before the visit in order to arrange a tour for someone who had hurt their knee. Milica was brilliant in choosing the best boat option for access. We booked a private tour for two people for 3-4 hours. There was flexibility to do 3 or 4 and the captain asked us what we wanted to do at the turnaround point for 3 hours. Balsa was an excellent skipper and provided just the right amount of information. The scenery was stunning. Never seen a snake swimming before, nor pelicans. Thank you for the loan of the binoculars. Shame we are going home tomorrow or we would have rebooked!

      Fantastic trip with George
      Great trip and fantastic guide, George. We had two kids 10 & 11 who were amazed by the tour and swimming in the sea. The blue caves were great and james bond music in the submarine tunnels were nice touches. Recommend for anyone looking for a good trip and worth the money.

      Wonderful boat trip and nice wine!
      Excellent relaxing tour to experience Lake Skadar and see it’s beauty. Our tour guide was very knowledgable on the different wildlife of the lake. Very nice local wines to try onboard - the nicest we had during our time in Montenegro.

      Perfect tour if you only have half a day left.
      I missed my first tour but the lady was kind enough to put on the next. It didn’t include dom monastery but totally worth it. The tour guide was extremely professional and knowledgeable. Provided wine, also picked water chestnuts from the lake for us to try. Overall, very satisfied with my experience. Would definitely recommend going with them.

      Great experience
      I took a 3hour boat ride to the monastery from 4 pm. It was very beautiful. There was also local donuts and wine tasting. The only thing I didn't like so much was the promised swimming in the lake. It was happening in the middle of the lake. I would prefer going somewhere to the coast and swim from there.

      Enjoyable trip around Skadar Lake
      Very enjoyable trip for about 3.5 hrs. Great views of the (North West of Virpazar) side of the Lake. Very reasonable price. Would recommend.

      Stunning lake
      It’s stunning lake and would be perfect if you go private or with small group. Also I guess it’s better to go either in the early morning or to see sunset. Pelicans are only in Albanian side unfortunately.

      Excellent boat tour on Skadar Lake
      Amazing views, capitan Petar was very friendly and kind, he shared a lot of information about the lake. We also got to taste typical red and white wine and also got a snack😋 We also stopped near water lilies to take really beautiful pictures. Almosy at the end of the tour we also stopped in the middle of the lake and were albe to go swimming for a few minutes. It was really nice. Highly recommend.😁

      beautiful lake, disappointing guide
      Tour was very well organized (meeting point, check-in, boarding) and stuff was very friendly. However, not much guidance. I was hoping for some information about fauna and flora in this beautiful scenery, but nothing was said. Basically tour guide wasn't speaking much, more interested in own mobile phone. We learned where the restaurant is, where the old prison was and how much fisherman earns. That's all during 2h tour. This was very disappointing, as well the warm drinks served during the boat tour (warm wine or warm juice). Therefore overall experience I rate 2/5.

      Bespoke Birdwatching tour to see the Dalmatian pelican
      We went on our tour in April 2023. The customer service was great and made very easy, we arranged our tour the night before using WhatsApp and specified we wanted to go on a bird watching tour. We met our captain early the following morning where he greeted us with fruit tea, blankets, binoculars, and bird spotting books. Although it was emphasised to us that they couldn’t promise we would see the Dalmatian pelican our captain used all of his expertise to try and locate one. Much to our delight it was successful! The early start and cold breeze was worth it. Our tour continued and we even managed to spot a kingfisher. I would highly recommend this tour to any keen bird spotters.

      Lovely afternoon out on Lake Skadar
      Lovely little trip out. The town of Virpazar doesn’t have much else to do so make sure you book an appropriate time. There wasn’t any benefit to me booking in advance in the end and all the tours seemed to be the same price on arrival anyway. Regardless, really nice hosts, lovely views and informative guides.

      Beautiful views
      My husband and I did the 6-hour tour on the third day of our trip and we both loved it. Our guide, Bakip (not sure about the spelling) was great, always slowing down the boat when we passed by birds and drawing our attention to them. This isn't the type of tour where the guide shares so many facts with you that you can't remember all of them, but is rather a relaxing boat ride through a beautiful lake to a cute little village for lunch. Unfortunately it started downpouring on our way back, but Bakip did a good job of keeping our spirits up and the rain added another later of beauty to the area. We were served local wine and traditional Montenegrin breakfast fried dough, both of which were delicious. I recommend this tour to anyone looking to explore the Lake Skadar area and spend a relaxing day in nature.

      V good but a little too long
      Lovely day out with a nice tour guide. But we felt the trio could have been shorter overall but a linger stop to get food
