After picking you up at Split promenade (BOAT MEETING POINT) you willl step aboard our speedboat for a thrilling 90 minute ride to Bisevo Island, whose highlight is the Blue Cave. In order to appreciate its ethereal beauty, we'll arrive exactly at the time of the day when the sunlight reflected through the sea floor bathes the entire cave in aquamarine light, while objects in the water are turned into shimmering silver.
Then we slice through the Adriatic to explore Komiza, a picture-perfect, authentic fishermans village on the island of Vis. After visiting Komiža we'll cruise around to the southern side of the island to stop in the unique bay of Stiniva and take a swim in the stunning Green Cave on Ravnik Island. When the sun is high, light enters the grotto though a large opening at the top of the cave which creates a dazzling array of silver and green colors. The cave is very spacious and the sea depth is 3 to 5 meters so our boat can get in easily. It`s time then to go to Budikovac lagoon, where the wonderful pebble beach and small protected bay provide a perfect spot for a light lunch and time to rest and enjoy swimming and snorkelling.
Our final destination is the town of Hvar, with one of the most beautiful harbors on the Adriatic, and a rich cultural heritage as well. Its seven-century old walls still survive, as well as many of the 15th-17thC Venetian era noble houses and public buildings. The easy walk around the town to discover its many charms is a delight. After enjoying Hvar town and maybe having a drink in one of famous cafes, it's time to to return to Split on our speedboat.

Wonderful day trip out to the Blue Cave, the Green Cave and Hvar Island. Our skipper was very friendly and informative and the trip was a lot of fun. The blue cave experience lasts only 5 minutes once you are in the cave so be ready with your camera (video might be better, especially as you enter the cave). A boat that was less maintained had been in the Green cave just before us, leaving some oil/petrol across the top of the water but it was still good to see. I recommend this if you are staying in Split and don't have much time, but still want a day trip out to Hvar and the Blue Cave!
Good trip overall.
Excellent tour, Highly Recommend!
A really wonderful experience made special thanks to our guide Damien !!!
We had a wonderful time! Literally every picture we took looks like it came out of a magazine! Best part of our trip. I definitely recommend this excursion to anyone whishing to see the beautiful islands around Croatia.
I had a great time on this excursion. The guide was friendly and the schedule perfect with lots to see and do.
Would have liked more information from our guide. He handled boat well and was considerate and friendly but didn't volunteer much information.
Excellent tour. Blue Cave beautiful. Great guide.
This was a great trip! The guide was fantastic and the scenery and islands were something to experience. The only negatives were the EXTREMELY HOT weather due to the lack of shade on the trip and the fact that the invoice advised I could pay in euros only to find out that the euros I exchanged in readiness for the trip were no longer accepted by the organisation... This could have been better communicated prior to the trip and meant I lost out on the exchange back to HRK.
A must do trip. Very few boats at Blue Cave and we ere alone in the cave. The blue was stunning, as good as the Blue Grotto (Capri). We had time on Vis and Hvar Islands and another highlight was the swim at the Bay of Stiniva, don't miss it. The trip back was rough but a lot of fun and the guide was great. A great way to see Adriatic Islands from Split
You told us all different places to be picked up. Two persons were told the wrong pick up and we were delayed almost 45 minutes as we couldn;'t find the people. Cut into our time and was not happy. You as an organization should have ONE meet point and that's it for everyone so there is no confusion. They said docks and there are several docks. The people that were there on time and in the first pickup were not happy as we had to wait going back and forth searching for pickups. Otherwise tour was fantastic and gorgeous. just needs to be more organized and clear on where to meet.
We had a really great day! Thanks a lot again!
The real highlights of this trips are the stops....the blue cave is of course, amazing, and the 2 stops at towns (Vis and Hvar) were great, and the lunch stop with swim at the cove (sorry I don't remember the name) was very special too.
3-4 hours in a speed boat on slightly choppy seas was extremely uncomfortable (ask the speedboat driver who had a lift home with us), but hey ho, we lived!!
My only disappointment was lunch, we were offered a basic sandwich only, no drink; which seemed a bit mean for a cost of over 100 Euro...customers are most easily satisfied through their stomachs.
I spotted a dolphin on the way out, it would have been nice to divert for 5 minutes....there are not many dolphins in the centre of the UK....
So my marks are at least 4, the only reason for a 3 for experience were the quality of the lunch and the discomfort of the trip.
However, to see what we saw in a day was fantastic, and we both enjoyed this trip.
We too the Blue Cave & Hvar Island Tour on 10 Sep 2012 and had an awesome day. Our guide was great, very knowledgable, friendly and a good skipper. If we every come back to Split, we would take another of your tours!
I highly recommend this tour.

Fantastic excursion and very good value for money. We visited alot of different islands and the guide was very flexible about how long we stayed at each place. Our guide was also brilliant, lots of fun, full of information and definately made the experience better. One thing I would note, is that the seas were very choppy and on the way back we were sat at the front and was very bumpy. I would warn people that this might be the case before they book. 5* excursion and very happy
It was a very nice and interesting trip for me!
Only great! Do it again...
We had a great time. Visiting Blu Cave was amazing experience. Time corse was little bit different from our recognition, but, it didn't matter much, compared with our wonderful experience. Thank you for providing us great memories of the trip.
In general the excursion was pretty good, although due to the high season we had to wait a long queue for the blue cave in Bisevo, and at the end didn't get time to swim in the green cave. The rest was all fine, the capitan/guide was friendly and we enjoyed it a lot. Totally recommended!
Our guide was wonderful. Funny and informative.
Unfortunately it clouded over and because of that the green cave wasn't as it would normally be, but nothing you can do about the weather! We had a great time, would definitely recommend it!
The blue cave and Hvar Island tour was a really fun day. Our guide was very experienced driving the boat (it was really rocky out) and the blue cave was absolutely beautiful. We had an amazing fresh seafood lunch on Island Vis and climbed the hill to visit the castle/look out on Hvar - the views were breathtaking. All in all it was a great fun and we're glad we did it!
Our day out to the Blue Cave and Hvar Island was absolutely fantastic! Marco was a great guide and was so flexible - taking us to different little beaches and giving us the perfect amount of time to walk around the different little islands. Relaxing on the boat as we travelled about was wonderful and the small group size meant we could really meet and chat to the lovely other people also on the tour. We actually were not in Split on the day the tour is usually scheduled, but because enough people were interested Split Excursions was able to organise the tour for another day. We loved it and will definitely do this day out again when we are next in Split - and if Marco is still around we'd definitely request him as our guide. He was great!
