Day trip to Krka from Split

I'm looking for advice on the best way to explore Krka National Park from Split. We are a large family group and are looking for a way to explore the park while our cruise is in port. Any recommendations for self-tours or recommended guided tours would be great.

At worst, you could certainly rent a car (or two) for the day and just drive there. If I were alone, I might consider public transportation but probably not with a big group.

Once you get to the park - e.g. drive to Skradin and park - it's easy to self-tour. Buy park tickets at Skradin, get on the hourly boat that goes upriver to the bit Skradinski Buk waterfall (beautiful), walk up past the old power plant etc. and across the river and back and even swim below the falls if you go in the warm weather, then take the boat back to Skradin. There is more of the park than that - see the park's website. There are some Roman ruins and another big waterfall for example, but I didn't see anything but Skradinski Buk as well as do the boat ride.

I'm guessing you can find options for an organized tour - have someone pick you up at the port and drive everyone to the park, but as I said you really don't need a guide just for Skadinski Buk; it might be nice to have a driver shuttling you to the other parts of the park if you want to see them.

If you don't want to spend all day in the park, there are other things to see - like the nice towns of Sibenik (close to Krka but on the ocean) and Trogir, near Split.

It's beautiful but I suggest going there early in the morning because around noon it is really crowded there.
Worst case getting a rental is a good solution as you can also visit other places or drive along the coast for some time too

If you are in Split for a single day, there is a lot to see. There is the Archeology Museum. There is the palace. There is walking around. If you are there for only a day, I would do Split.
