The day was not good and we could not visit the blue cave due to the wind, but the guides were very kind and the excursion in general was very pleasant. In the specifications it says that it is not suitable for people with back pain. Take it literally because the Zodiac moves a lot, it's not a boat ride... A nice experience.

The team was excellent and really helpful, providing everything we needed to have a great day. I loved that we had 3 swim stops, and the guided tour of Hvar town was a really nice touch too. Will be back next time I'm in Croatia!

Highly recommend! The food was fantastic as were the staff. It was a good amount of time at each spot for a swim and the music on the way back to the mainland was the perfect end to the day!
