Blue Cave Tour from Split
Choose between Budget, Standard or Deluxe option
Blue Cave Tour from Split, also known as Five Islands Tour is the most popular excursion to mid Adriatic islands. Not only that we stop on the best locations such as Blue Cave and Hvar but you can also choose between three different types of boats.
You could say that the tour comes in three different sizes with three different price tags. Why three different options?
Because not everybody prefers the same type of boat. One is faster and cheaper, the other one provides more comfort and protection, while the third one is the biggest and also the most expensive.
So not only that you can choose the type of boat you like but you can go on the same trip with the boat that is within your financial limits.
Which islands/locations we visit?
We stop at Biševo, Vis, Budikovac, Hell Islands (Pakleni otoci) and Hvar. Among these five, Hvar and Vis are among the biggest islands of mid Adriatic.
Blue Cave Tour from Split is composed in a way that places we visit are one of the best beaches of mid Adriatic, natural phenomena you simply have to visit such as Blue Cave and one of the most popular locations in Croatia such as Hvar.
On this kind of tour you are never bored since each place is stunning, yet different from the previous one.
Why is Blue Cave Tour #1?
You visit all the best places on mid Adriatic islands, all in one day. There is enough time at each place. It is not just speeding from one island to another.
On some places we stop for 30 to 45 minutes, while on others we'll stay for more then 2 hours. It all depends on the destination and what it offers.
You don't need to swim in the lagoon for two hours, one is enough. However, you need more time to explore Hvar and visit the fortress above the city.
What to expect & what to bring?
First destination is the Blue Cave on Biševo which is also the furthest point from Split. It takes between 1 hour and 20 minutes up to 1 hour and 50 minutes to reach it, depending on the speedboat.
After the Blue Cave, each of the following destinations is 10 to 20 minutes away from the previous one. Only the return back from Hvar to Split takes between 45 to 60 minutes. We recommend you bring a shirt with long sleeves, especially if you are going a on a Blue Cave Tour in spring or early fall.
Besides the bathing suit, you might want to bring a towel, sunglasses, sunscreen, hat as well as food, snacks or lunch money. On the other hand, besides the boat, fuel, the crew, free drinks and the tickets, safety gear and snorkeling equipment are also included in the price.
What about the lunch?
Although you have free drinks on the boat, lunch is not included in the price of Blue Cave Tour from Split. However, you have few options.
Cheaper option includes bringing your own snacks and food which doesn't need to be in a refrigerator. You can also buy some snacks and food in local market, when we stop at Hvar.
More expensive option includes having a lunch in one of restaurants at Hvar or Hell Islands. Just remember that these two places are a bit expensive.
Usually the cheapest lunch in a restaurant, at Hvar or Hell Islands, is around 14 euros for one person.
