Prolaz Zapuntel est le chenal entre les îles de Molat et de Ist.
Les mouillages sur les rives N et au S du chenal offrent une excellente et totale protection dans un cadre magnifique.

L'approche par les côtes E de Molat ou de Ist est franche. L'approche par la côte W demande de l'attention (nombreux îlots, hauts-fonds et roches). L'entrée E est profonde mais il y a seulement 5,80 m de fond dans l'entrée W. On peut rencontrer ici de forts courants pouvant atteindre 3 nœuds.

Il est interdit de mouiller dans l'axe du chenal ainsi que dans l'entrée W qui est traversée par un câble sous-marin. Les mouillages sont aménagés avec des bouées pour les visiteurs dans la baie NW et dans la baie S devant le hameau. Un droit de mouillage et une taxe visiteur sont perçus pour la nuit.

On peut mouiller par 4, 8 m dans le NW du bassin ou au S de la baie, près du môle, par 8 m. Fond de sable ou de vase de bonne tenue.
La Bora souffle avec force au milieu du bassin, mais les mouillages au N et au S procurent une protection totale, même par Bora.
