It was really a great experience this tour! The guides were very nice and approachable, which I always appreciate. The blue grotto is beautiful, but I wouldn't really have needed it for the effort. We were lucky and only had to wait an hour - but if there is a lot going on it can take 3 hours, which really doesn't make up for the 10 minutes in the cave. What was a bit of a shame, we found that loud music was constantly playing on the boat, but that is of course a matter of taste (Split is now also a party town). You should definitely take a windbreaker and long clothes with you because the wind is very cool. What is also good to know: The registration office is NOT located directly on the water by the boats, but opposite on the beach promenade. If you come a few minutes later, that's not a problem either. All in all, I would do it again at any time and recommend it to others!

Spring season is ultimately the best time to book. Unlike summer vacations with up to 3 hour wait times, our group only waited for the 2nd available boat to explore the blue cave. The entire day was well worth the trip for the price. Lunch is optional as well as other sights while visiting the other islands. Bring cash, even though some will accept CC at the Blue Cave and Hvar. Bring a towel if you want to swim at one of the resting spots, bring a hat and sunscreen. The speedboat has a variety of seating including at the back where you will get wet!

We had a great day trip! Everything about it was perfect, we were even lucky enough to see dolphins on our way back! Larry and Anna did an amazing job at looking after us and making sure we felt safe and comfortable! 10/10 would recommend!

Awesome day. The guide and the skipper were very friendly. The Blue Caves were closed but the alternatives offered were very good. Worth the cost

This is a great experience. 6 Islands in one day. Although it is a little pricy, it is worth it!
