The Turquoise Lagoon of Budikovac island

As we leave Green Cave on island Ravnik full of impressions from this beautiful natural wonder of Vis archipelago we speed towards another breathtaking location in the same archipelago, island Budikovac. As we speed towards Budikovac island we will pass near lighthouse Stončica, built in 1865. This stone lighthouse, even though it was completely automatized not long ago, is still fully crewed throughout the year. Stončica is characterized by an impressive octagonal stone tower visible from far distance. Depending on how much time it takes us to visit Blue Cave, Stiniva Cove and Green Cave we will either do a scenic cruise around the Budikovac lagoon or we will stop for a half and hour swimming break on this far off island and its clean...

Visit Green Cave on islet Ravnik

As we leave Stiniva Cove where we had enough time to swim and refresh in the clear blue sea of Stiniva bay we speed towards uninhabited islet Ravnik on the south side of island Vis. Islet Ravnik hides another natural wonder of Vis archipelago and another great attraction on our Split Blue Cave tour which is a must see stop for anyone who is aware of it's existence. On the south-west side of the islet you will find the Green Cave. As of July 01st, 2017 the entrance fee to the Green Cave is € 10. The exploration of the cave is possible only as a part of our private tour. We are sorry for this inconvenience There are two entrances into the Green Cave...

Visit Stiniva Cove and the most Recognizable Beach on island Vis

After we have visited Blue Cave on our Blue Cave and Hvar tour from Split we headed out with our speedboat towards the popular Vis attraction, the Stiniva Cove. Because there are no more islands to the south of the island of Vis, except for Italy in the distance, the strong southern wind created waves which served as an artist who has carved the south side shores of the Vis island for centuries. The masterpiece is still in progress and it is truly a work of art which is definitely worth to visit. These are great spots to take some photos and marvel the beautiful power of nature. #gallery-1 { margin: auto; } #gallery-1 .gallery-item { float: left; margin-top: 10px; text-align: center; width: 25%; }...

Visit Blue Cave on island Bisevo on Sugaman’s Blue Cave and Hvar tour from Split

The first stop on our Blue Cave and Hvar tour from Split is the Blue Cave on island Biševo. Biševo is a small island located around 2.6 nautical miles from the south-west tip of the island Vis, just as we pass the fishermen town of Komiža. The speedboat ride from Split to Blue Cave takes one and a half hours and it is the longest part of our journey, but it's well worth it, as anyone who has visited the cave can testify. From then on all other stops on this signature Sugaman tour are very close to each other. The docking site on Bisevo island before the start of the Blue Cave sightseeing tour As we arrive to island Bisevo, we stop at the...

Preparing for the Tears of St. Lawrence and the Night of the Shooting Stars

Meteroids, Meteors, Meteorites and Bolides The smallest celestial bodies moving around the sun (in our solar system) are called meteoroids and we divide them into two groups. They are extremely small bodies ranging from fraction of a millimeter to size of grain and from couple of millimeters to few centimeters in diameter. The ones that burn in collision with Earth's atmosphere are called meteors. Celestial bodies that manage to arrive to Earth's surface are called meteorites. If the celestial body is larger in dimension, from few dozens of centimeters to couple of meters, even dozens of meters it rarely falls on Earth surface and for its bright shining light we call them bolide. That is why we call fastest racing cars in Formula 1 bolide...
