Know More about this tour

Croatia is best known as a dream getaway for a perfect holiday. It has everything to satisfy the fantasy of any vacationer. Most famous historical places, untouched nature, hidden beaches where the water is so clear that the boats in sea appear like they are floating in the air, not to mention the gastronomy, and this is just the beginning. As expeienced guides we would love to invite you to join us on our Blue Cave and six island tour. Blue Cave is a natural phenomenom which is situated 1 hour and 30 minutes from Split's main harbor, on Bievo island.

The next destination will be surprise destination - but it wouldn't be a surprise if we revel it to you now.

The Monk seal Cave consists of a spacious outer part, and the inner narrow and darker part with the underwater opening to the partially shaded place where it housed a type of seals that got the name, the Mediterranean Sea Bear. The local people called him Sea Bear or Sea Cow, while his Latin name was Monachus monachus, in translation - a monk. In this 70-meter-long and 4-meter-wide cave they lived, they were born and perhaps died, also nicknamed the sirens of the Bisevo island. The last ones were seen somewhere in the 60s of last century. The cave is very mysterious and attractive, and the attractiveness increases if you are lucky maybe to see one of the sea bears.

Stiniva is one of the most famous coves on Vis island, and certainly has the most unusual form. It is located on the south side of the island, bordered by high cliffs that leave only four meters close to the entrance from the sea. After passing through the "door" , it opens a beautiful rounded bay with a pebble beach. Stiniva was declared the most beautiful beach in Europe in 2015.


Our next destination is a small paradise on earth situated between 3 islets Blue lagoon on Budikovac island. Blue lagoon is one of the prettiest locations in the middle part of the Adriatic for snorkeling and swimming. Here you can let your self be lazy and enjoy in tranquility in one of the most beautiful seas in the world. The next location that will leave you breathless is Pakleni islands or translated to english The Devil's island. Don't worry there is no burning flames but they are most beautiful island complex in Adriatic sea.
Over 20 hidden beaches and bays this place will wake explorer in you and make you wanna stay. From Pakleni islands we are heading to the most famous island in Croatia, Hvar island ( Hvar town - which is probably one of the most beautiful harbors in the world ) .

In Hvar you will have some free time to discover the Old Town, climb the Fortress or just get lost in the small narrow streets like locals do. We let you get acquainted with the town by yourselves.

    Really disappointed, nothing compared to what we were expecting based on the tour reviews and description:

    - Tour started more than 20min late
    - No water or light breakfast was provided on our tour voucher it clearly stated this would be provided, and when this was raised to the tour guides they apologised saying sorry our boss didn't tell us to buy breakfast, so the 10 of us on the tour did not have any food until lunchtime.
    - On the Blue Cave tour stop, our tour guide simply disappeared after providing us our tickets with almost zero explanation, and we were left on our own the other tour guides stayed there organising their groups to make sure the whole group boarded the same Blue Cave boat together . This caused the group split so we had to wait for the other half group to return from a separate Blue Cave tour.
    - The tour guides although nice enough, seemed little interested / exhausted / overworked maybe? so we were not provided much information at all regarding the places were were visiting. 1 or 2 sentences at the most.
    - What was meant to be a visit to the Green Cave, ended up being a 10 second in and out halfway into the cave, we could not see anything and before we know it the visit to the Green cave was over.
    - The worst part and the most disappointing part was that the tour voucher clearly stated that lunch would be in Hvar , and that we would have time to wonder around the island. Hvar was the part of the tour that not only us but the rest of the passengers were looking forward to the most. Instead, our tour guides took us to another island across Hvar called Carpe Diem where the one and only lunch option was a beach club overprice and terrible food however I guess this is the place the tour company had a commission arrangement with. Me and my partner are foodies and we had book lunch at a wonderful restaurant in Hvar however we were left with no other option but eating at the Beach Club only option , and stay there for 2h vs the 40min quick visit we had in Hvar. This is unacceptable and extremely disappointing.

    Well worth the beautiful boat ride out to the Blue Cave. Amazing to see the color of the water and cave! Quick day trip, worth the time spent on the water!

    Incredible day visiting the blue cave and the islands. The blue cave is an amazing experience that you must do if you are visiting the Dalmatian coast. We had lots of opportunity for swimming and our tour guides were very lovely. Would definitely recommend!

    Great tour and a great way to see a number of islands in a short period of time. It was unfortunate that we couldn't enter the Blue Cave due to the filming of Mamma Mia/a high tide but this couldn't be helped. The situation was handled very well by the staff who tried to sort an alternative out but this was not possible either. The boat ride was awesome as were the tunes that accompanied us on our trip!

    Never seen anything like this before.

    The speed boat trip was quite an experience but it should be better disclosed so one can have a better idea of what to expect.
    First - the trip to the Blue Cave is very long and we ended up there completely wet since we were sited on the last raw of the boat. We thought that that was bad so we requested to change sits and we were move up front - WORSE choice ever as the water impact is worse sitting up front that in the back, so on the next stop we moved back and fortunately we didn't get more wet than we were already. Because the duration and the speed and the water impact wasn't fully disclosed - it gets very tough on your back and knees if you are trying to stand up to try to make the water/waves impact less. Very tough really and it's a long period of time between stops. I thought I was going to loose a kidney during this trip. We had a woman in our group who mid way started to cry and demanded to be left on one of the islands to take the ferry back as she couldn't take it any more. Her words this is not what we've signed up for and I can't enjoy the view because of the speed and the water impact on the boat She stayed on one of the islands. Blue Cave experience - exceptional, but the Boat ride itself - not great. You get used to it after a while but like I said - Thank God I didn't loose my kidneys. All in all - I think you should describe the trip/speed/and potential issues in more details so if one signs up for this knows exactly what to expect.

    If you are going to go to Hvar just take the ferry rather than do it on a tour. You really need a full day or more to take it all in.

    The tour operators were great. Unfortunately we had bad conditions so didn't get to see the Blue Cave at all : but we got a small refund at the end of our tour and the rest of the time spent was beautiful!
