We had the most magical day on this trip! It started with a gentle sail to a beautiful swimming spot off the island of Brac. On the way we were given a pastry for breakfast. The water was beautiful and clear and we borrowed snorkels and floats! We then went to Hvar and took the guided tour which was really interesting. We had free time to swim in the beautiful bay. Once back on the boat we had a lovely chicken salad lunch on the way to one of the Pakleni islands. We had cake and fruit here and enjoyed some more swimming. Our last stop was another part of the Brac islands. On the way back to Split we had music and dancing which was a brilliant atmosphere and got everyone together. The hosts were fantastic, it was so much fun and we highly recommend this trip.

Wonderful day ! The only negative point that makes me hesitate with 4 stars is the number of people… far too many on the boat and not enough room for everyone. But the excursion is really great! We spoil you all along (donut, watermelon, juice, and burger). The wreck is not visible from the boat but is fun to observe while snorkeling. All stops are one hour minimum, which leaves time on the island for example too. The team is very nice! Thanks to Marco for his good humor and joie de vivre! Thanks to the rest of the crew too!

Summer blues catamaran and crew really made our day on this holiday. Such a fun time, great food, open bar, swim time and Hvar was fabulous. Thankyou guys for an awesome time Sue and Talia(birthday girl)

Bruno was an excellent skipper, and Dora looked after us very well, always offering bottles of water and explaining everything very clearly, and very good historical information too at our destinations.

Great boat, plenty of space, really friendly and welcoming crew
