Really enjoyed this trip. High speed trip across the bay to Vis. Top tips: don't sit up the front (my bum is still sore), don't turn up with a hangover (you'll want to DIE) and plenty of sunblock. Sadly the Blue Caves were closed that day due to high waves, instead we visited the equally pleasant Green Caves and swam in a secluded bay for an hour. Then onto Hvar for a late lunch before a blistering ride back to Split (sit in the back for that).

We went as a family with a young child (10) and we all had a great time! The blue caves were eye opening and the different islands were just beautiful. We went in October which is the perfect time to go! Still great weather but less tourism so not as crowded. Our little boy absolutely loved the travel on the speedboat but be prepared to get wet as it gets a little rough out there!

It was a great tour and I was able to see a lot that I wouldn't have been able to had I not taken the tour. The only negative was the place they suggested for lunch was very expensive and I was not expecting that. I just ordered the cheapest thing I could even though I knew I would still be hungry.

We had a great time on this tour and it was definitely one of the highlights of our time in Split! It was a very very bumpy ride but the crew gave us tips on where to sit to make it more comfortable. We all get very wet so definitely bring a change of clothes!

Great experience. Little music on the boat is nice. The Blue Grotto is beautiful and we were able to stop in several places to swim. However bring a sweater it is a bit cold on the boat
