From Split to Blue Cave

As you can see on the Blue Cave tour map above, Biševo island is the most distant island from Split on our trip. Nevertheless, our fast speedboats are able to cover this distance in approximately 90 minutes. Since our Blue Cave tour starts early in the morning, you will enjoy the panorama of the islands near Split before the sun rises high on the horizon. From the Blue Cave, all other attractions on our journey are just a short boat ride away.

Blue Cave Tour

Explore one of Croatia’s remarkable natural masterpieces – the Blue Cave on Biševo island, where the sun’s rays reflect off the water and white seabed to cover the cave’s interior with a vivid shade of blue.

The tour is organized from the small port on Bisevo island. You will board a wooden boat which is capable of entering the narrow cave entrance. Getting inside the Blue Cave is quite an adventure that you will not soon forget.

More FAQ about the Blue Cave tour

Island Vis

Witness this bright blue phenomenon up-close before heading towards the Monk Seal Cave.

The longest cave on Biševo island (160 meters), the Monk Seal Cave is named after, you guessed it – the Mediterranean Monk seal, which is known as one of the most endangered mammals in the world! On our stop here, you’ll have the chance to experience the grandeur of the cave first hand.

Before you know it, you’ll be soaking up the sun at Stiniva Bay on the island of Vis, a 600-meter-long pebble beach enclosed by vertical cliffs which was named Europe’s best beach back in 2016!

From Stiniva, you’ll dive into the turquoise lagoon of Budikovac, or let your curiosity lead you past the extended pebble beach of Dalmatia’s only island with a single inhabitant.

The Pakleni Islands are a set of 14 flawless islets which provide unique opprtunity to enjoy in the peace, tranquility and unprecedented clear blue sea.

We will cruise Pakleni islands archipelago and find the perfect bay for the group to enjoy.


You’ll end the tour embracing the glitz and glamour of Hvar town, a pearl of Dalmatian tourism located on Croatia’s sunniest island of the same name. Hvar is no stranger to the spotlight and is known for welcoming the hottest international celebrities and world-class yachts, though behind its prestige is a charming, humble, and ancient town waiting to be explored.

You can hike to the top of the Fortica fortress, a symbol that sits high above the town with a view of red-rooftops and the Pakleni islands below, or embrace the history in the center of the city, which boasts the Arsenal, home to one of the first public theaters in Europe.

Circle through the maze of narrow streets to find art galleries, locally-made handicrafts, and colorful jewelry shops or park yourself at a cafe with the view of a Venetian palace in front of you.
