What people are saying about Hvar Island

Had the best last day in Croatia on this day tour of the islands! Smooth sailing on the water, good music and a bottomless bar with wine and beer. Great place to meet other young people if travelling solo. Stopped in Hvar and had a really interesting tour of the island from a local and had time to wonder around and get an ice cream too. Breakfast and lunch provided was nice also. Would defo recommend!

Very friendly staff, great service and food, a very relaxing trip with beautiful swim stops. If we could, we would rate more stars :) PS: The external guide in Hvar was hard to understand (voice to low for the large group) and did not always wait until the group had gathered at the stops. This could be improved.

Very good excursion, the only thing I would have appreciated is a summary at the beginning, to know where we are going to stop and at which stops we can swim, etc. We were very impressed by the skipper's driving skills.

Excellent excursion and organization of the capitão. At the end of the day, we will have lunch at a restaurant at Numa ilha that ended with an excellent experience in the sun.

The staff was so friendly and the boat so clean. The your on Hvar was short but sweet and their was plants of time to enjoy the day.
