Embark on a Mesmerizing Journey: The Blue Cave Group Excursion Departure from Hvar Start your adventure from the picturesque town of Hvar. As the sun begins to rise, our comfortable speedboat awaits at the harbor, ready to whisk you away on an unforgettable journey. The excitement builds as you meet your friendly crew and fellow adventurers. First Stop: The Green Cave After a delightful 35-minute journey across the Adriatic's azure waters, you'll arrive at the Green Cave, a marvel on an islet near Vis Island. The cave's namesake comes from the ethereal green light created by the sun reflecting off underwater algae and illuminating the cave's interior. You can choose to swim into this natural wonder or be transported by a small boat operated by the Port Authority. Inside, the crystal-clear waters are perfect for snorkeling, offering a serene underwater experience. Onwards to Stiniva Bay Next, you'll head to the spectacular Stiniva Bay, encased by towering rock formations. The bay, accessible only by swimming or a small rubber boat due to its swimmers-only policy, was named the best beach in Europe in 2016. Its pebbled shore and crystal waters are ideal for relaxation and swimming. Here, you'll have about an hour of free time to soak in the sun, swim, or enjoy a refreshing drink at the quaint beach bar. Highlight of the Tour: The Blue Cave A short 20-minute ride brings you to the tour's crowning jewel, the Blue Cave. On arrival, our guide assists you in purchasing tickets and provides insights into the cave's discovery and history. The wait for your turn is a great opportunity to enjoy a drink at a nearby bar. Entering the cave, you're greeted by a captivating blue light, a natural phenomenon caused by sunlight passing through an underwater opening. The cave's ambiance is both mystical and serene, a memory to treasure. Your Personalized Adventure After the Blue Cave, the journey becomes even more personalized. Vis Island, rich in history and natural beauty, offers several options. History enthusiasts might opt for the World War II military submarine tunnels, while beach lovers can choose from the Seal Monk's cave, Stončica sandy beach, or the Green Lagoon on Budikovac Island. Alternatively, visit the lively towns of Komiža or Vis for a taste of Dalmatian island life. Final Stop: Palmižana Bay As the day winds down, Palmižana Bay on the Pakleni Islands awaits. This bay, famous for its exquisite cuisine and cocktails, is the perfect place to relax after an active day. Choose from three exceptional restaurants or enjoy a cocktail at the Laganini bar. A stroll through the botanical garden adds a touch of tranquility to your experience. Sunset Return to Hvar As the sun sets, painting the sky in hues of orange and pink, you'll board the boat for the final time, heading back to Hvar.

Good tour and the places they took us to visit were beautiful. Skipper was very friendly. However the boat was quite small for the number of people and there was limited space for people to lay down and relax. Also felt that for the price more (eg drinks, food, entrance to caves) could be included - although sadly think this is the going rate in Hvar for a boat trip like this!
