Why choose Three Islands Tour
Excursion is best suited for families and people that prefer peaceful trip instead of speedboat adventure. Not only that we go with a big boat but this is inexpensive boat tour where you also have lunch and drinks included in the price.
We go to the first line of islands which are closer to Split and unlike speedboats, this type of boats spend less fuel and can take more people onboard. This leads to a better price for you, the consumer which is why full day tour with a big boat is cheaper than half day tour with a speedboat.
Also, if you're afraid of speedboats, want to go with kids on the tour, you like jumping from a top deck of a big boat or you just want more shade or more space onboard, than this trip is made for you.
Nečujam bay on Šolta island is our first stop on Three Islands Tour. We anchor near the shipwreck which is a perfect spot for swimming, sunbathing and jumping off the boat.
However, the shipwreck under the sea provides great opportunity for snorkeling and exploring the secrets of an old and once lost time and history of Šolta island. You can grab snorkeling equipment from the boat and dive underneath. It's free.
That being said, you can also swim to the shore or enjoy in the scenery of crystal clear sea surrounded by lush green forest of pine trees, while the crickets and waves hitting the shore provide calming atmosphere in the bay.
Maybe the best place on the tour is secluded lagoon surrounded by several islands. Blue Lagoon is picturesque location perfect for snorkeling, thanks to turquoise color of the sea and shallow sandy sea bed.
Sun rays reflect from the white sandy bottom which creates colors and shades of blue and green that you will remember for a long time.
Although snorkeling gear is free, there aren't always enough masks for everybody but you can also bring your own mask. Speedboats can fit up to 12 to 14 people, while our boats for Three Islands Tour can fit up to 100 people.
Also, since the lagoon is quite shallow and the boats have a big draft, we usually anchor in the middle of the lagoon. That being said, many of our guests prefer jumping from the boat, especially from its top deck, boat's sundeck.
Maslinica on Šolta
Maslinica is small, charming town situated in a bay on the western part of Šolta island which completes the experience of Three Islands Tour when combined with the Lagoon and Shipwreck Bay.
It was once a fishing village, but it slowly turned into a tourist and nautical center of the island. On the western side of town, you will find pebble beaches and beach bars. In the center of the town. there are restaurants, few markets and shops where you can buy souvenirs as well as lavander and olive oil which are synonyms with the town and the island.
You will also notice old houses made of stone and historical castle Martinis Marchi, surrounded by pine trees. If you want to take nice pics of the place, we recommend climbing on the small hill above castle Martinis Marchi from where you can see entire town.
