Split: Blue Cave and 5 Islands Tour

1. Split: Blue Cave and 5 Islands Tour

Your tour starts at 7:30AM from where you will travel on a comfortable and safe speed boat fit for 12 people. The first stop is the mesmerizing Blue Cave, which is known for its shimmering blue water and is located on the small island of Biševo. Depending on the season, the ideal moment to visit the cave is between 10:00AM and noon. At this time of day, the sunlight reflects through the water coming from the white floor of the cave and bathes the grotto in aquamarine light. This light causes the objects in the water to appear to be silver. The second stop is Stiniva Cove, which was awarded the best beach of Europe in 2016 and is famous for its difficult approach and crystal clear waters. You'll spend 40 minutes there swimming and sunbathing before making your way to the next stop of Budikovac Island. The beautiful blue-lagoon-like beach captures your attention from the moment you enter it, and is the perfect place for snorkeling and swimming. If you'd not prefer to swim, you can always choose to have a drink in a local beach bar. Following an hour of sea fun, you will travel to the Pakleni Islands, a beautiful set of islands located in front of Hvar. There you can find some of the best seafood restaurants or popular beach clubs. The city of Hvar is a real treat, due to it being one of the most famous tourist destinations in the world. There you can explore the local cuisine in the many restaurants and lounge bars. When it comes to sightseeing, you can't miss the city's highlights which include the fortress on top of the hill, the main square, and the St. Stephen’s Cathedral. Hvar is the final stop of the tour, but on your way back to Split you will have the chance to experience one of the most beautiful sunsets in the area.

2. Split: Blue Cave, 5 Islands, & Snorkeling Speedboat Tour

Get some much-needed vacation time away from the hustle and bustle of city life on this private, multi-stop cruise from Split, including drinks, snacks, snorkeling gear, and on-board amenities. Enjoy a day out on the sea, visiting picturesque islands, unique caves, and sandy, clear-water beaches.  Starting early so you have plenty of time to visit all the highlights of the area, head to Blue Cave, one of the top locations reachable from Split. Arrive just in time to see the cave turn aquamarine blue as the sun reflects through the seafloor and decorates the interior of the cave. Just as a few minutes away, see another hidden treasure, the famous Monk Seal Cave, an inevitable stop while exploring the Vis Island. This 160-meter-long cave is an adventurous paradise named after the Mediterranean monk seal that used to reside on its beach.  Another beauty created by mother nature is the famous Stiniva Beach, hidden in a small narrow cove behind two tall cliffs that separate the serenity of the beach from the open sea. Enjoy free time to explore the beach. Swim and snorkel (gear included) and feel free to dive in and take a look beneath the surface. You’ll surely be amazed by the underwater scenery waiting to be explored. Use a GoPro (included) to capture your exploration of the beach. Next, stop at Budikovac Island with its turquoise lagoon that constantly changes from dark to light as the sun moves on the horizon. Enjoy another perfect spot for swimming and snorkeling thanks to its relatively shallow and completely crystal-clear water. The journey continues towards the Pakleni Islands and the famous Palmižana Bay. Hidden in a dense pine tree forest and often filled with different boats and yachts, the bay is highly ranked among the visitors of Hvar Island.  The final point of the tour is the city of Hvar. Visit the old town of Hvar, the sunniest spot in the country, and explore its historic core with characteristic stone houses, elegant buildings, traffic-free streets, and inviting restaurants.  Before heading back to Split, get to know the easy-going life on the island, taste Hvar’s signature dish gregada (Croatian fish), experience eating in the authentic surroundings of local taverns, and travel to the Croatian Renaissance by visiting the old house of the poet Petar Hektorović.

What people are saying about Hvar Island

Amazing tour. Blue cave is unforgettable and swimming in the Adriatic is better then any other sea I've been too. And the tour guide and skipper were great. With all the difficulties with COVID-19, they still made an amazing trip. Definitely would book here again.
