This article is about the region of Krka river and Prokljansko jezero (Prokljan lake) which lays at the lower part of the river.

The river is connected to the sea via a 5-mile long inlet entered through a narrow strait, the Kanal Sv. Ante, situated five miles SE of Vodice and 11 miles NNW of Primošten.

Yachts mostly come to this region to visit the Krka National Park entered at the village of Skradin eight miles upriver. Nevertheless, the shores of the river are fairly scenic which makes the passage quite pleasurable.

See Šibenik for navigation along the Kanal Sv. Ante into the Šibenski zaljev (Šibenik bay).

Once into the bay of Šibenik, the entrance to the Krka river channel is a further three miles at the NW end of the bay. The channel is marked with port and starboard buoys.

Follow the channel round into the large inland lake of Proljansko Jezero, being careful to avoid the numerous mussel farms en route.

The channel then continues after the headland of Oštrica at the E side of the lake for a further two miles, then under a motorway bridge and up to Skradin.
