Fun for all the family, the pirate-themed Galija Explorer Ship lets you enjoy a variety of different excursions aboard an authentic, restored galley ship from 1914. It’s an unforgettable way to explore the stunning Šibenik coastline and experience the natural aquatic beauty of the region, from magical island views as far as the eye can see to pretty coves and swimming spots. Your next big adventure awaits.
Our Galija, built in 1914, was first used to transport gravel from more or less its current location to the island of Zlarin. This was a typical use of galley boats at that time.
Registered in Šibenik in 1997, Galija features as a pirate ship film prop in the American film of the same year, ˝Kull the Conquerer“, filmed around Murter and the Kornati Islands.
Our Galija was restored to authenticity in 2009 by local, traditional wooden shipbuilders in Betina. The centuries-old wooden shipbuilding tradition in Betina is protected under Croatia’s intangible cultural heritage.
