What people are saying about Hvar Island

Had the best last day in Croatia on this day tour of the islands! Smooth sailing on the water, good music and a bottomless bar with wine and beer. Great place to meet other young people if travelling solo. Stopped in Hvar and had a really interesting tour of the island from a local and had time to wonder around and get an ice cream too. Breakfast and lunch provided was nice also. Would defo recommend!

Very friendly staff, great service and food, a very relaxing trip with beautiful swim stops. If we could, we would rate more stars :) PS: The external guide in Hvar was hard to understand (voice to low for the large group) and did not always wait until the group had gathered at the stops. This could be improved.

Super mega experience with catamaran. The atmosphere was very relaxed thanks to the music. Team very attentive and friendly. It was fun on the catamaran but also outside the stops for swimming were brilliantly chosen. Even the food was great and the water mole was super sweet. Generally was extra.

The staff was so friendly and the boat so clean. The your on Hvar was short but sweet and their was plants of time to enjoy the day.

Amazing day! Totally recommend, price includes food and wine!! All the swim spots were amazing!
