We got lucky as it was the last day of the season to access the blue cave. The trip was amazing and the speed boat experience was excellent for me ( i do not recommend if you have back problems). We got to see the daulphins and save a poor bird on our way as well. It s really worth every penny !

Journée extraordinaire, grotte bleue magnifique, skipper et guide très sympa. Bon timing de visite des 3 îles. Lieux sublimes. On a même vu des dauphins proche de nous le matin! Très joli souvenir en famille.

Great tour, beautiful islands and lagoons. The speedboat gets really cold but the borrowed wind jackets solved the problem. Mia and Neno were great guides!

It was a lovely day out on the sea! Mia and Stipe were great guides. There was a lot to see on the islands and the speedy boat ride was great fun!

Perfect, one of my highlights of my trip. Worth every penny!!
