We were a group of 5 guys and had a great time! The catamaran was well equipped, there was all inclusive. Drinks (soft drinks, coffee, beer & wine) and a delicious Caesar salad (also vegetarian & gluten-free possible9 as well as cake and fresh fruit in the afternoon. Hvar is a super beautiful island that we were able to visit on our own for about 90 minutes. The crew on the boat was super friendly and nice! Later we also danced and celebrated to good music.

The team was excellent and really helpful, providing everything we needed to have a great day. I loved that we had 3 swim stops, and the guided tour of Hvar town was a really nice touch too. Will be back next time I'm in Croatia!
