  • From Split and Trogir: 5 Islands and Blue Cave Day Trip

    1. From Split and Trogir: 5 Islands and Blue Cave Day Trip

    Visit 5 of Croatia’s islands in style with a fun-filled day trip by speedboat. Head on an adventure where you explore caves, swim and snorkel, and discover Dalmatian towns.  Choose either Trogir or Split as your starting point. And best of all, choose from either a small-group or private experience.  Cruise on a 90-minute speedboat journey to reach your first stop, the Blue Cave. Explore the cave in a small fishing boat as you take in its famous crystal blue waters.  Next up is a visit the island of Vis for you to explore the village of Komiža in 1 hour of free time. Discover the traditional Dalmatian fishing village with its narrow streets, pebble beaches, and inviting promenade.   Swing by Stiniva Cove next, accessing the cove at the sunniest time of the day for a quick 15-minute dip. Then head to Budikovac Island for your next activity: snorkeling and swimming in the Blue Lagoon....

    This experience was fantastic, and would happily do it again. The first stop was the blue cave which was stunning, the initial speedboat ride to get there was long so be prepared, but fun! The next stops were beautiful and we were there just the right amount of time. The blue lagoon was nice, but overrated I think and the beach is pebbled so a bit rough on the feet. We were lucky as we had perfect weather which made the boat ride perfectly fine but I can imagine it could be pretty rough weather dependant. Would definitely recommend this trip and Mario and Elena were fantastic.

    The tour was great! My girlfriend was a little afraid as she gets seasick very fast but she had no problems and enjoyed the boat tour as well. The atmosphere was fantastic, everyone (the boat driver and the other passengers) were very friendly, the music at the boat was so nice and the locations we visited were so beautiful. Swimming in the sea and watching the fishes and the corals was also fun. I can only recommend the tour to everyone who is visiting Split!

Thrilling adrenaline filled boat ride! Even though we didn’t get to see the blue caves because of the high waves, the visits to the islands with 2 swim and snorkel stops made the trip really worthwhile.

Definitely worth the day out. Such beautiful stops and a decent amount of time spent at each stop to be able to see it all. The speed boats were definitely an experience in itself

What an amazing experience this was to go on the speed boat from island to island along with the blue cave which was incredible.

Very fun great exploring! Great stops. Make sure you walk up to the fortress when you get to HVAR!
