Park Fees

In Telascica Nature Park individuals are charged by the day for their visit. In the case of visiting yachts park officials tour the anchorages collecting 60kn per person per day. Some accounts suggest that this fee includes a 1 night pass to stay in the Kornati National Park within its price, which seems like astonishing value if this is the case. As fees are charged per person it appears that anchoring and mooring is free. It is possible to fish, hunt and diver in the Nature Park though all require a permit for which separate fees are charged. Expert guides can also be hired for the park.

A full schedule of fees can be found on the Telascica Park website.

Navigation and Mooring/Anchoring

Navigation is allowed throughout the park. The main approach to the park from the inshore waters of the coast are past Otocic Katina either through the Proversa Mala passage which is lit and buoyed and has a maximum 4.2 metres. The alternate channel Proversa Vela is unlit and has a maximum depth of 2.2 metres .

Within the park there are speed limits of 10kts once inside the the Cape Pod Poljica (the southern edge of Uvala Tripuljak) and of 5kts in mooring areas. There are three areas where moorings are laid for guests - Uvala Tripuljak, Buhaj and Pod Katina. The parks encourages people to use these moorings (which are free) but anchoring is also allowed (see the list of park’s suggested anchorages below.

The park is particularly concerned with the possibility that anchors may cause harm to sea grass beds, which are rare, but thrive and are present in the park. This damage is primarily caused by cross contamination with bacteria from other anchorages - to be sure you avoid potential harm please clean your anchor before using it in the park (read more here)

Places to eat

Unlike the Kornati there seem to be fewer restaurants surrounding the shores of Luka Telascica. There are restaurants on the eastern shore of Uvala Telascica, at Mir on the SE edge of Uvala Tripuljak (at least 2 establishments during our visit) and on the southern side of Otocic Katina. We also noted a restaurant on the shore of the Proversa Mala during our transit there in 2008.
