Positives Excellent value for money. Time to swim in sea. Tour of a number of islands. 3 hour stop off on one island where you are free to roam. Simple but tasty meal of fish or chicken. Negatives. Remember I said about that swim? Be aware that health and safety is approached very differently than in UK. If you did that event in UK you would be filling in forms, signing waivers, have a safety brief etc. Here, you are asked if you want to swim to the caves and thats it. You jump off the boat, have to swim 100 metres in open sea to the shore, swim under water for 2 metres and then you are in some impressive caves. Then duck under again and swim 100 metres. No checks even if people could swim. In our party a lady panicked whilst doing the underwater swim and it was up to two tourists (not the guides) to bring her back. If you are going to do the swim to the caves then make sure you are a strong swimmer as the swell is strong. Alternatively just swim around the boat or stay on board.
Casual tour to hell! There you can snorkel and watch the sea bream and you can jump off cliffs like Turkish Spiderman! On the way back there is mackerel or chicken vegetarian menu also possible with drinks, wine, cola etc. Watch out for seagulls they are just keen on mackerel. Then the island is headed for, there is a bar otherwise nothing special there 2.5 hours stay and off to the port of Medulin. By and large you can take away.
The trip was very nice, the only thing I have to complain about is the pick-up from the boat at the beginning. This should be more structured - two boats, a larger number of participants and nobody knew where they belonged.
It was a great boat tour. The cave was swimmable at low tide. No diving necessary ... fish tasted very good. The only downer, the tour started at 12 noon instead of 9 a.m. ...
A perfect boat trip with a great team and great impressions, definitely worth booking
