A fantastic day and great way to see lots of the surrounding islands during a short stay in Split. Crew on boat were great. The captain said to think of the boat as a roller coaster on the sea and at times it did feel that way. Lots of fun with the music playing and the company of other passengers. Each location we visited during our October stay was quiet and tranquil! A great time to visit and do this tour. We were the first boat at the blue caves which can be queued for hours during high season apparently.

Fun day trip with great music in between the stops. All stops were definitely worth visiting. We even saw dolphins on our way. Would have loved to be able to spend more time at each stop. The only downside was that we did not receive the promised water bottles.

This tour offered some amazing views of scenery in the islands around Split. While the Blue Cave was unfortunately closed, they took us to another cave to makeup for it. Excellent guides

It was a lovely day out on the sea! Mia and Stipe were great guides. There was a lot to see on the islands and the speedy boat ride was great fun!

Perfect, one of my highlights of my trip. Worth every penny!!
