|07:30h Departure from Split. Our adventure starts here ( in front of the Church and Monastery of St. Francis ). If you are looking to board in Trogir, you will need to be at the designated meeting point at 07:00. On the other hand, the departure from Split is at 07:30. If you want to take things 100% safe – show up at least 15 minutes before the departure so we can organize ourselves more appropriately. Before the tour starts, you will be introduced to all the safety equipment in case of an emergency. You will also get info on the weather forecast and some more details about the tour. Once everyone is onboard, the boat will take you to our first stop – The Blue Cave.|
|09:00h – 10:00h Blue Cave, Bisevo island The trip to Bisevo Island won’t take long; around an hour to an hour and fifteen minutes is all it takes. Once there, our crew will help you get off it and give you information about the island and the beautiful cave that’s been a tourist attraction ever since it was discovered and announced to the world. During your time on the island, the boat crew will take care of the tickets for the Blue Cave (which are included in the price) so you do not have to worry about anything other than taking a couple of awesome photos for your “Croatia Full of Life” album. No worries, you will have plenty of free time to explore the island before moving into the cave itself. The Blue Cave is a magical place that’ll create an experience you will never forget, all thanks to its dashing blue light illuminating the water as well as the cave itself! It’s really a mesmerizing place, bound to sweep you right off your feet. Just make sure you stay on the boat, though – swimming inside of the Blue Cave is strictly prohibited.|
|10:30h – 11:00h Arrival at Stiniva Beach, Vis Island You would think that the Blue Cave is the pinnacle of natural wonders on this trip, but we are happy to inform you there’s more! Vis Island is the next stop and you will get there pretty quickly after soaking in the beauty of the Blue Cave. Experience nature in its rawest whilst on Vis Island. Stiniva Beach was voted as the <strong>Best European Beach of 2016. </strong>The beach is rather secluded and protected from the Adriatic Sea as its surrounded by high gorges. Stiniva Beach is, in reality, a natural monument that has no commercial influences on it; the aspect of nature here is present to the maximum which will be a huge plus for nature-nerds among you.|
|11:15h – 12:15h Arrival at Blue Lagoon, Budikovac Island The time spent on Vis Island is short but sweet. However, what comes next is even sweeter. This is the first destination which lets you directly interact with the sea life! Once on Budikovac Island, you will take part in scuba-diving activities (the price of which are included in the tour price) in the Blue Lagoon, a well-known lagoon which features crystal-clear sea, and rich flora and fauna. Oh and, if scuba-diving isn’t your jam, you’ll be able to bath and relax in the sea! The nature surrounding Budikovac Island has that characteristical Mediterranean flair to it which will surely impress you.|
|13:00h – 14:30h Arrival at Palmizana, Paklinski Islands Scuba-diving and bathing is fun, but to continue our adventure, we have to leave the Blue Lagoon behind and come to Paklinski Islands where you’ll get to relax in Palmizana; a tourist resort dedicated to high-quality service and enjoyment. The restaurants here are exquisite and their fish menus are well-known in this part of Europe and absolutely stunning. If you consider yourself a cuisine-enthusiast, do yourself a favor and try them out! With full bellies, we’ll sightsee a bit more and then hop on the boat so we can go to our final destination – the island of Hvar.|
|14:35h -17:00h Arrival at Hvar Island Sometimes called “The Pearl of the Adriatic Sea”, Hvar Island is the most popular island in Croatia. Due to the many activities present on it, we’ll be staying on Hvar Island for almost 3 hours. If food is your forte, you’ll feel right at home eating the many Croatian delicacies and specialties, many of which will leave you stunned as to how tasty they are. You will, of course, have time to explore the streets and cultural sights as well. One of the most dominant tourist magnets in Hvar is its fortress which overlooks the entire island. If you manage to climb to the very top, you will see the spellbinding Harbour of Hvar with its traditional architecture nicely poised with modern vessels. It’s also the perfect spot for photographs that will act as crown jewels on your Instagram profile.|
|18:00h Arrival at Split & Trogir Following the end of our adventure on Hvar, we’ll be heading back home to Split (and then Trogir). The trip back takes around an hour and, during this time, we’ll talk about the trip, your experiences, and thoughts about the Blue Cave & 5 Islands Tour. Photographs are a big part of the tour as well, so make sure to take a lot of them! The expected time of arrival back to Split is at 18:00 and to Trogir at around 18:30.|
