What to expect

One of the most wanted adventures in Split and Dalmatia is the Blue Cave tour or five islands tour. This popular tour gives you a chance to visit the most famous destinations of Central Dalmatian islands and coastline, all in one day. 

The tour starts in front of our agency (Maruliceva 4, Split) where a small group of maximum 12 people gathers and the guide takes you to the speed boat with comfortable and safe seats which is your living room for the day. 

Let us take you on the tour of your life…

The Blue Cave is a unique wonder of nature, located on the small island of Biševo. Its name already describes it perfectly, one of a kind place in the world, widely known for its crystal blue water. It attracts a large number of tourists and local people each day during the summer. The cave was originally accessible only by diving as there was only one natural entrance below sea level. To be able to provide more people with this one of a kind experience, an artificial entrance was made in 1884. and it's large enough for small boats to enter the Cave. Usually, the ideal time to enter the Cave is in the morning while the sun is high and the sunrays create the perfect angle with the bottom of the cave to color it in the most beautiful shades of blue while all the objects in the water appear to be silver and sparkle. Because of the large number of people visiting the cave every day, sometimes we need to wait our turn to enter, but there is no place for worry, we do all the waiting for you while you relax on the beach or have breakfast or a coffee in a local bar. Once it is our turn to enter, we enter in with a small wooden boat that takes you into the blue jewel of the Adriatic coast.

The Southeast side of the island of Vis keeps many small caves and beaches hidden from the influence of the outside world and we visit the most famous one - Stiniva beach. Stiniva beach was rewarded as one of the most interesting and beautiful beaches in Europe. The fact that the beach can be approached only by boat or by walking from the other side of the island is the reason for preserving the natural beauty of Stiniva. We stop the boat in the bay right in front of the beach and it takes a short swim to get to the beach, which you will certainly feel is a worthy effort when you get to see the bay of deep crystal blue sea surrounded with the high rocks spreading in front of you. 

Budikovac island, a place where you feel like you are in the middle of paradise, it is perfect for swimming and snorkeling. It is one of many small islands surrounding Vis, known as a great place to explore the diversity of the sea world in the area while swimming in crystal clear sea - so magically blue that the bay is known as the Blue lagoon. If you do not prefer swimming, you can always choose to have a drink in a local beach bar or just enjoy the sun on the sundeck of the boat.

The Pakleni islands are actually a set of islands located in front of the town of Hvar, famous for its beauty. The islands are not inhabited during the whole year and every single one of them has something different to offer – from bars to restaurants to beautiful beaches and scents of pines and local herbs. And yes, we just cannot go over it: the actual correct name of this set of islands is PAKLENI islands. It was named after Paklina, a black resin characteristic for the type of pines growing on the islands which were used in shipbuilding. 

The island of Hvar and the town of Hvar- It needs no introduction given the fact that it is one of the most famous tourist destinations in the world. The beautiful capital of one of the sunniest islands of the Mediterranean, the town of historical heritage, clear sea, lavender, and parties. That's where we make a longer stop to give you enough time to explore the town and enjoy lunch in some of the local restaurants, where you can taste amazing local food and wine. When it comes to sightseeing, we can point out a few locations not to miss: the Fortress Španjola on top of the hill above the town of Hvar, the Main Square, St. Stephen’s cathedral…

For everything you want to see or for any recommendations, our tour guide and skipper are there for you – they are there to keep the perfect day perfect. 

This excursion can also be booked as a private Blue Cave trip, where we can maximally adapt to your needs and desires.
