Full description

Begin your tour at 7:30AM, where you will travel on a comfortable and safe speed boat fit for 12 people. First, stop at the mesmerizing Blue Cave, which is known for its shimmering blue water and is located on the small island of Biševo.

Depending on the season and time, see the sunlight reflecting through the water and coming from the white floor of the cave. View the grotto in aquamarine light. This light causes the objects in the water to appear to be silver.

The second stop is Stiniva Cove, which was awarded the best beach of Europe in 2016 and is famous for its difficult approach and crystal clear waters. Spend 40 minutes there swimming and sunbathing before making your way to the next stop of Budikovac Island. 

The beautiful blue-lagoon-like beach captures your attention from the moment you enter it, and is the perfect place for snorkeling and swimming. 

If you'd not prefer to swim, choose to have a drink in a local beach bar. Following an hour of sea fun, travel to the Pakleni Islands, a beautiful set of islands located in front of Hvar. There, find some of the best seafood restaurants or popular beach clubs.

The city of Hvar is a real treat, due to it being one of the most famous tourist destinations in the world. There, explore the local cuisine in the many restaurants and lounge bars. 

When it comes to sightseeing, you can't miss the city's highlights which include the fortress on top of the hill, the main square, and the St. Stephen’s Cathedral. On your way back to Split, have the chance to experience one of the most beautiful sunsets in the area.

Amazing tour. Blue cave is unforgettable and swimming in the Adriatic is better then any other sea I've been too. And the tour guide and skipper were great. With all the difficulties with COVID-19, they still made an amazing trip. Definitely would book here again.

We had to visit the blue cave, the blue lagoon and 5 islands. The landscape, the view was magnificent. It's a shame that driving the boat was dangerous, we were making very, very dangerous leaps and I can't tell you how we got soaked several times. In addition, we learned that the blue cave was closed at the end of the visit to the fourth island and it was we who asked. Explanations were brief. It would be good if the people who guided us would question their way of proceeding. It is still an excursion to do when you come to visit Split.
