Croatia is best known as a dream getaway for a perfect holiday. It has everything to satisfy the fantasy of any vacationer. Most famous historical places, untouched nature, hidden beaches where the water is so clear that the boats in sea appear like they are floating in the air, not to mention the gastronomy, and this is just the beginning. As expeienced guides we would love to invite you to join us on our Blue Cave and six island tour. Blue Cave is a natural phenomenom which is situated 1 hour and 30 minutes from Split's main harbor, on Biševo island. 

The next destination will be surprise destination - but it wouldn't be a surprise if we revel it to you now. 

The Monk seal Cave consists of a spacious outer part, and the inner narrow and darker part with the underwater opening to the partially shaded place where it housed a type of seals that got the name, the Mediterranean Sea Bear. The local people called him Sea Bear or Sea Cow, while his Latin name was Monachus monachus, in translation - a monk. In this 70-meter-long and 4-meter-wide cave they lived, they were born and perhaps died, also nicknamed the sirens of the Bisevo island. The last ones were seen somewhere in the 60s of last century. The cave is very mysterious and attractive, and the attractiveness increases if you are lucky maybe to see one of the sea bears.

Stiniva is one of the most famous coves on Vis island, and certainly has the most unusual form. It is located on the south side of the island, bordered by high cliffs that leave only four meters close to the entrance from the sea. After passing through the "door" , it opens a beautiful rounded bay with a pebble beach. Stiniva was declared the most beautiful beach in Europe in 2015.

 Our next destination is a small paradise on earth situated between 3 islets Blue Lagoon on Budikovac island. Blue Lagoon is one of the prettiest locations in the middle part of the Adriatic for snorkeling and swimming. Here you can let your self be lazy and enjoy in tranquility in one of the most beautiful seas in the world. The next location that will leave you breathless is Pakleni islands or translated to english The Devil's island. Don't worry there is no burning flames but they are most beautiful island complex in Adriatic sea.

Over 20 hidden beaches and bays this place will wake explorer in you and make you wanna stay. From Pakleni islands we are heading to the most famous island in Croatia, Hvar island ( Hvar town - which is probably one of the most beautiful harbors in the world ) .

In Hvar you will have some free time to discover the Old Town, climb the Fortress or just get lost in the small narrow streets like locals do. We let you get acquainted with the town by yourselves. One of the most popular boat tours is certanly this one, it is one of those tours that make you ask for more, and it is a perfect way to discover the undiscovered.

Incredible day visiting the blue cave and the islands. The blue cave is an amazing experience that you must do if you are visiting the Dalmatian coast. We had lots of opportunity for swimming and our tour guides were very lovely. Would definitely recommend!

Great tour and a great way to see a number of islands in a short period of time. It was unfortunate that we couldn't enter the Blue Cave due to the filming of Mamma Mia/a high tide but this couldn't be helped. The situation was handled very well by the staff who tried to sort an alternative out but this was not possible either. The boat ride was awesome as were the tunes that accompanied us on our trip!

Our family enjoyed the tour. The speedboat ride was excellent, the crew members were good too. The blue cave experience was fabulous and we could swim in several different locations during the various island visits. Hvar island is also a must see. Overall, great tour and would recommend it for others.

Out of the 3 Viator Tours we took on our 2 week Croatia trip, this was our favorite! Professional tour operators, comfortable seating/boat accommodations and fun group! Blue Caves was spectacular! The second Island can't remember the name, had a fun atmosphere and swimming options, but food was sub-par. It was 1:00 pm and we were starving, so waiting for the next Island Hvar to eat was unfortunately too long. I wish the guide had mentioned what our eating options were and which islands at the beginning of the tour, as we would have waited for Hvar. It had many restaurants to choose from. Overall, great tour!

The tour was a lot of fun. The blue cave is definitely something that everyone must see with their own eyes. The cool small towns on the coasts of the islands provide you with a great perspective of the croatian island life. Make sure to bring some warmer layers for the durations between islands. We went on 2016-09-25, it was a sunny 26C day and the winds still managed to cool a lot of people down. Also, water can start to splash into the boat if there is a cross-wind.

Great way to see a few islands in one day. As advertised, it is a speed boat-be prepared for speed, and getting a little wet on the way. Bring swim shoes because the bottom of the sea is very rough and rocky. These are not sand beaches, but the water is clear and beautiful. The blue cave looks just like the photo, only it is only big enough for the boat to enter and turn around. A great experience overall.

Really enjoyed this tour. There were 12 ppl on the boat in the end. Unfortunately we didn't get to see the Blue Cave as the sea was too rough fairly common in September apparently but the rest of the trip made up for it. N.B. they delayed the trip by a day as the weather was really bad on teh booked day. Gorgeous weather and stop off locations with lots of swimming opportunities. Really great skipper. N.B. The food is AWFUL. Literally got a very small plate of dry fries with a slab of greasy meat and had to pay for drinks.

The trip was very enjoyable. We rode a jet boat, namely Space Fun. The captain and the driver were very nice and helpful. They took photos for us, and took care of our things while we were swimming. The most exciting activity was paragliding. I have never tried it before. It was fantastic! I definitely recommend this. Thank you!

Great tour, and our two crew members were really nice and approachable. Everything was explained properly and they gave us historical facts about the island we were passing by. The blue cave is quite amazing although you need to be aware it will only be a 10mn tour. It is really worth it though!!

This was a really fun and interesting tour. The guides were excellent and the scenery including the blue cave was amazing. I would recommend it to anyone.

The captain/skipper Reuben gave us a one wild ride on the SPEEDboat emphasis on speed since the captain was a huge fan of going full speed during the entire trip! This tour was a great way to see several of the islands in just one day again, at record speed. If you are up for the wild ride, I highly recommend this tour!!!

The most amazing thing I've done this year. A MUST DO!

Things start out a little crazy in the morning getting the seating figured out on the boats - but just hang in there! The rest of the day is amazing!! This is a day in a speed boat - on the ocean - so set your expectations properly, and have a blast!!

Fantastic day out, thoroughly enjoyed it. Food was OK.

SO amazing!!!!! Highly recommend. The blue cave was incredible, we saw in the green cave. What a unique experience, and snorkel in the blue lagoon. MY husband and I had a blast. This was the highlight of our trip! The only thing that would make it better was a glass of wine or a beer :

What an adventure! In addition to touring the Blue Caves, we had a fantastic boat ride from Split to Bisevo and then to Hvar with views of Solta, Brac, Vis and other surrounding islands. After we were fed lunch, we had time to walk through Hvar Town. Our guides were capable, friendly and informative

On arrival there was confusion on what boat we should be in as lots of boat tours met at the same place at the same time. Despite this, our tour guide was great and the boat trip itself was worth the cost!

the experience was awesome. only thing was that i did not receive my bottle of water : The guide was very kind and the views were excellent. Blue cave tour MUST be on every schedule at Split

The tour operators were great. Unfortunately we had bad conditions so didn't get to see the Blue Cave at all : but we got a small refund at the end of our tour and the rest of the time spent was beautiful!
• Submitted 31 Aug 2017
The tour was great. The two guides of our boat of 13 people were really nice and helpful. The tour goes to the blue cave 1h30 of boat, then 3 beaches and the city of Hvar. Beware, the lunch stop 12:30-14:30 is at Carpe Diem Beach, which is quite a bad and expensive place to eat. Pack up some sandwiches or eat properly later at Hvar if you do this tour.
