We retain the right to change the route for the benefit of all passengers. This decision is made by the skipper. Due to congestion in high season, it is very likely that the visit to Komiza village gets left out.

The tour starts from Makarska and, after transfer from Makarska to Split, meeting point is at Split harbor. There you meet everybody who is on the tour, as well as the people responsible for making an exciting adventure of your day: the skippers. The trip starts early in order to avoid crowds at the caves and beches. After getting on the speedboat the first things to enjoy are the sun and the waves. The first stop is Hvar town, a beautiful Adriatic resort. After stopping there for a short time, we head to the Green cave on Vis. There you can enjoy the mesmerizing colour and explore the bottom with snorkels. All along the way the skippers will provide you with the stories, facts and expirience about the locations you visit

After that, the tour continues to Bisevo island, the location of the Blue Grotto. Throughout the day you can enjoy Bisevo, starting with the Blue cave which is a wonder in itself, and also roaming the northern cliffs and resting on an intimate sandy beach called Porat bay. There is a small local beach restaurant with great local cuisine. After lunch, it is time for some exciting secret locations.

The third cave you visit is the Monk seal cave. Here you can also take aswim as in almost all the other places you visit on the tour. After the Monk seal cave we go down the southern coast of Vis exploring the unique shapes of the cliffs to Stiniva bay, a small beach surrounded by steep cliffs. The last stop of the tour is on the Pakleni islands, a great place for diving or relaxing at the famous Palmizana beach.

After Palmizana, we head back to Split enjoying the sunset.

Enjoying in the nature, having fun, and being able to see all of these breathtaking locations in only one day is what this trip is all about. Creating a memorable experience is what we aim for.
