Influence of the weather on the boat trips

The most sensitive are the boat trips of the fish picnic type. In the case of the strong wind from the south (Jugo) and especially, from the southwest (Garbin), it is not recommended to take this trip. In Novigrad, the harbor is not very sheltered, so large waves can be seen even before departure. Interestingly, any northeasterly wind,(and despite the name: Bura), no matter how strong, ensures calm seas along the coast and favorable conditions for navigation. If the weather forecast is not good, you can try a bus trip.
