Really good experience. More of a party boat for young people so don't bring young kids. Food was excellent, we were served a pastry in the morning and a burger with chips at around 1pm. I'd recommend bringing your own drink or cash to buy drink on board as the free wine doesn't taste great. Only available drinks are beer and wine which were 30 kuna each and there was also no spirits. The stop at the island is short but so beautiful. Also bring a speaker as music was not provided. We made so many friends from around the world on the boat and made our own fun out of it so if you want to meet new people this is a great option.

Split is beautiful and this was a great little get away. If you're looking for an in depth tour this isn't it but if you want to go out on the boat with a small intimate group it is a good time. Bring drinks and/or snacks though as sadly no water was available on board as stated in the info. Luca is one heck of a driver and even let our friend help out on the way back!

Everything was fantastic! We really liked the tour to Trogir, Blue lagoon and Maslinica. Our tour guides/captains were really nice and friendly, we even could listen to the newest Croatian rap while riding a boat.

Great tour with beautiful spots for snorkeling and swimming, good food, nice staff. All in all recommendable.

Speedboat was class. Very fast. Trogir was lovely. Instructors were fun. Don’t wear a cap - it’ll blow off.
