It was a very nice trip. The weather was awesome and we saw a lot. It was our first time we saw dolphins jumping in the water. Hvar island is really beautiful and full of great places to take photos. We loved jumping from the boat to the water, and swimming in crystal clear sea. The crew was really professional, especially Robert who guided our trip and told us a lot of interesting facts.

Perfect welcome, everything was explained to us in a very nice way, beautiful excursion with availability of unlimited croissants and drinks, very kind staff. Unfortunately we could not visit the blue grotto, but we took the time differently and the tickets were refunded. The lunch was spectacular

A perfect trip to end our time here in Split. From start to finish we were well looked after, friendly crew, relaxed environment and of course stunning views. We had fun jumping from the boat, floating on inflatables and were fortunate enough to see so many dolphins on our way!

Excellent Great value for money. Impeccable staff, good food, very good itinerary 2stops for diving and 1stop to visit hvar. It's worth it

Great way to quickly get to the Golden Horn Beach!
