Full description

Meet the group near Riva promenade and board a speedboat for an adventure. Ride 1 hour and 15 minutes to the Blue Cave on the island of Biševo. The early morning is perfect for spotting groups of dolphins. Once near Biševo, the boat will anchor 200 meters from the Blue Cave. Entry tickets allow access to the swimming area and a chance to explore the Blue Cave in a small boat. Marvel at the flickering blue lights and glowing water. Before leaving, grab a drink at a local café.  Next, visit Stiniva Cove, located in the southern part of Vis – the furthest inhabited island in Croatia. Known for its high limestone cliffs and pebble beach, Stiniva is the perfect place to swim and snorkel. Admire the clear turquoise sea, ranging from 10-15 meters.  Continue to Budikovac, a small and almost uninhabited island. Meet its only permanent resident, Mr. Andro, an ex-ship captain who runs a small restaurant on the island that serves the best traditional Dalmatian cuisine. Savor local produce fresh from his vegetable fields and visit the donkeys and chickens on the farm.  Admire Mr. Andro's Dalmatian-style stone house and take a break to check out the island. Then, it’s time to head to the Pakleni Islands where you can delve further into the local food by choosing from several restaurants overlooking the sea. Have a cocktail at a beach bar and relax on the sandy beach.

Your next stop, Hvar Island, is just 15 away. Once in the port town, walk the old-town streets and pass by souvenir shops. Visit historical sites such as the Arsenal, one of the oldest theaters in Europe, St. Stephen's Cathedral, Franciscan Monastery, and the Bishop’s Palace.

To catch some panoramic views of Hvar and the Pakleni islands, you can go up to the Spanjola fortress. After a tour of Hvar, begin the return journey to Split.

We were very happy with this one day trip! We were lucky the queue to the blue cave was quite short that day, but in any case we didn't have to stay in line because they have a ticket with number system which is great. Very well organised. The visit was great and then we had time to swim in the blue lagoon, then a little stop at another island and then a longer one at Carpe Diem which was very pleasant and over 2 hours of free time at Hvar which was what I really loved ! It was important to us to not just stop 15 minutes at every island and to have time to actually enjoy the places so I really recommend this trip! Plus the crew was very nice and chill

This was a beautiful day trip! I can't say enough good things about our driver Sinisa and hostess Karla. They were very sweet and accommodating. One tip: know if you're buying the one that includes the cave Tix or if you need to bring cash for it. A very nasty family gave them a lot of trouble over that. Aside from their entitled attitude and UnpleaSAntness, it was a wonderful day!

Very good experience !! Perfect way to visit unmissables things when you're in Split such as the Blue Lagoon, the Blue cave, Hvar and Carpe Diem. Be careful, there can be a lot of sensations in the boat when the sea is wavy (or not). Crew is very cool so it's worth the price !
