Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Begin this exciting day trip from Split by being picked up at your hotel and then join your host and skipper.

After a speedboat ride to the trendy island of Hvar, head to Biševo Island to get an up-close and personal view of the legendary Blue Cave (entrance fee not included) Gawk at the cave, which boasts a natural glow and a magical blue hue that is extremely pleasing to the eye. Marvel at the intense blue and the flickering light of the cave. After spending about half an hour enjoying some time on the beach here.

If all that swimming has worked up an appetite, head to the Pakleni Islands, a collection of 14 islands that are relatively untouched and untrammeled. Get off the boat at Pakleni islands and sit down for a well-deserved lunch (at own expense) at one of the plethora of restaurants that line the coast. Take 2.5 hours to have a leisurely meal and explore some of the islands.

When the time comes, meet up with the tour host again on the boat and head back to Hvar. Once there, enjoy free time in Hvar Town, the main city on the island and a town that is overflowing with history.

Your day trip then concludes with a drop-off back at the Riva in central Split.

Such a great adventure!

We love to travel and explore places as much as possible with our daughters so booking this trip was a must to see more of the Croatian islands! Our speedboat driver was Jure, and Domo was our guide. He was so great with our children, making sure they had the best experience! Thank you Domo, our girls loved it! And so did we! @family_travel_diaries (Instagram)

Beautiful places poor organization
Margarida_F

The places we visit are amazing, but the organization of the speed boat company wasn't that great!!! We were told to be earlier in the meeting point and they were the ones not being there. So we start we a delay. The divison of grpups per boat was a bit clumbsy and me and my friend we were in 3 diferent boats along the day!!!! and we didin't understand why... The order of the tour was changed, and we had a really bumpy ride and it was desconfortable! So for me the places were great but the organization was poor!!!

I have to be honest -- when I originally researched tours, this was not my first choice. The other one I was eyeing was completely booked full, so I hesitantly settled for this one. But let me tell you... I was NOT disappointed! The tour guide, Lauren if I remember correctly, was amazing! She was so friendly and knowledgable of the area. We had a small group of 15 so it was quite intimate, making the experience 10x better. At one point, the skipper gave my mother his own jacket because she was cold -- so sweet! On that note... after being on the excursion versus what I originally read on Viator there seems to have been some changes in their itinerary and what is offered. So here are some corrections and suggestions: 1. there was no free wine tasting -- however, they did give us each little bottles of wine at the end as well as take a group shot of homemade croatian liquer. So it evened out! 2. You actually have lunch in Hvar for a total of about 2.5 hours including some free time. I would suggest not selecting the lunch option.. if you do, it equates to 20 euros a person and the tour guide prepays your lunch. We did eat at a relatively inexpensive place so even after ordering three pizzas, 3 salads, 2 beers and a cheese platter, we were still under budget. So if you're on a budget, buy lunch once you get to Hvar instead of through Viator. 3. It says it includes use of waterproof and windproof jackets, but I suggest you bring your own. They only had one adult and one childs jacket on board. So our day looked like this: 8:00am - depart Split 9:45am - Blue Cave lasts about 20 minutes, soooo beautiful! stopped briefly at Monk Seal Cave did not enter because of falling rocks two weeks prior, so crew didn't wan to risk our safety stopped briefly at Green Gave was an extra cost, and according to crew not worth it compared to Blue Cave 11:15am - swimming in Stiniva Cove 20-25 minutes 12pm- swimming and snorkeling in Blue Lagoon of Island Budikovac 45 minutes 1:15pm - lunch and free time in Hvar apprx. 2.5 hours, most beautiful island ever 3:45pm - swimming and drinks in Palmizana 45 minutes 6:30pm - return to Split In conclusion, I am 100 happy I booked this excursion! It was a highlight of my trip to Croatia. Plus, the boss was on the tour with us and we gave her some suggestions i.e. adding some noodles for swimming, etc. You could tell she is determined to make this excursion better and better, and I have no doubt in my mind it was continue to improve from how great it already is!

The only things worthwhile on the tour are the blue cave and Hvar Town. There is a stop in the blue lagoon which is ok, but only having 1 hour in Hvar after 3 hours on a small island with 2 restaurants and a beach was frustrating. Wine tasting felt like a sales pitch.
