Blue Cave tour
You can select between Open Speed Boat and Luxury Cabin Boat
The Blue Cave is the first destination you will visit on your day trip from Split. The Blue cave is located on the east side of Island Biševo. The speedboat ride from Split to the Blue Cave takes approximately 1 hour and 15 min and is very interesting due to the frequent encounters with groups of dolphins in the open sea. The morning hours are so peaceful that dolphins can be noticed from a long distance. Your captain will come as close as possible to the dolphins, if they are spotted, so that you can take photos. When we arrive on Island Biševo we will stop 200 meters from the Blue Cave. Then your sailor will buy tickets (included in the price of the trip) and you will have time to bath or purchase a drink at a local cafe. Small boats will take you into the blue cave as the entrance is only 1.5 meters high. After that you get back on our speedboat. We can guarantee the time you spend in the Blue Cave will remain with you for a lifetime.
The second stop on your speedboat tour is Stiniva Cove which is located at the southern part of Island Vis – the furthest inhabited island in Croatia. Stiniva cove is known for its unique natural beauty dominated by high cliffs that form a small “sea entrance” to a pebble beach with a breathtaking clear turquoise sea. The speedboat is moored just outside the Stiniva gates from where you jump into the sea to experience the cove firsthand. Since the bay of Stiniva is far away from civilization and is near the open waters of the Adriatic Sea, you can see different types of fish swimming nearby. As you dive in, you can clearly see the sea bottom even though the depth in the bay ranges from 10 to 15 meters, even deeper as you move out of the Stiniva cove. As you swim through the Stiniva gates you will find yourself inside the shallow bay with transparent sea on which end stands a beautiful pebble beach. But what is most striking is that the entire bay is surrounded by massive limestone walls. There are speculations that Stiniva Cove was a cave a long time ago, but the ceiling of the cave collapsed forming what is now Stiniva Cove.
Next stop is Budikovac, a small, almost uninhabited island. It lies northeast of Ravnik Island and there is only one resident living during the whole year, Mr. Andro, the ex-ship captain, known by many on the Adriatic. His home on Budikovac is a quaint house made of stone, a typical Dalmatian stone house that can be seen in almost every historical dalmatian town. He runs a small restaurant on the island during the season, where you can dine on the best of traditional Dalmatian cuisine. He also has a small animal farm and vegetable fields on the island which he tends to – so you can be sure that the food served in the restaurant is fresh. You can see domestic animals such as donkeys and chickens roaming around, and they are very friendly. Andro claims that he would never want to return to a city again, the reason is the amazing blue lagoon of Budikovac Island. On the bottom of this both blue and green sea you will see many sea urchins which is proof that the sea is extremely clean and an amazing place to swim and snorkel.
After exploring the marine life, you will probably be hungry so we will take you to the Pakleni Islands where you can choose between several restaurants and eat freshly made traditional Dalmatian food. There are great views to be seen from restaurants that overlook the sea and boats. Have a cocktail at the beach bar and relax on the sandy beach of the transparent sea that is almost green.
The Pakleni islands are just 15 minutes from Island Hvar, which is a top destination in Croatia and is our next stop where you will be able to walk the ancient streets and buy souvenirs. It is a small town whose architecture is worth seeing. Visit historical sites such as ‘Arsenal’, one of the oldest theaters in Europe, Hvar’s cathedral, Franciscan monastery and the Bishop’s palace. Also, you can take your time to go to some restaurants or beach bars as Hvar is also famous as a party island. You should visit the fortress ‘Fortica’ that has an incredible view of the town and take amazing photos. Don’t forget to take home some Lavender grown on Hvar.
