We did the tour from split which was 5 island including hvar and blue cave. Lea and Filip were our guide and skipper…they were passionate, well informed, and gave us a unique, personable, and most enjoyable experience. Special shout out to Filip who made the journey between islands exceptionally fun, full of adrenaline, but at all times safe. Highlight of our trip. Filip’s passion for his homeland was obvious and Lea’s kindness and English was most welcoming. At first, the idea of a 10 hour tour is very daunting, but it was so fun and the time flew by. Highly recommend If you are in Split for a short time and want to do as much as possible. Both Lea and Filip were very nice and provided a lot of laughs - great humour and great day. Croatia is a beautiful country and thank you for showing it to us.

The trip was really amazing. Beautiful sights on the speedboat. Felt like you are riding the seas with a nice music playlist and of course the islands were great! A tip to use the windbreakers offered as it can get cold in the morning with the wind blowing and longer journey abt 1h+ to the blue caves. Also sitting at the back of the boat was more comfy without having to have your legs sprawled across the seat.

Maya & Mario were absolutely amazing, the best 2 guides you could ask for. They were fun and entertaining, offered wind breakers which we gladly took! The whole day was fun and cultured with plenty of good recommendations of where to visit and where to eat, couldn’t recommend this enough

Maggie and Kiki were great guides! We had a great tour, great music, and we even got to see dolphins! The time spent on the boat is quite a bit but that is the only downside to this tour.

Very nice staff, amazing places to swim and got to see fabulous blue caves, Peter and atoro (I think) were so much fun and great help. A must do activity.
