A wonderful day on the boat! The guide is excellent and the swimming breaks are numerous and varied. We also had plenty of time to visit Hvar during the lunch break. In short: we have not seen the time pass! In addition, the boat being small, the excursion is personalized and quite different from large tourist boats. We highly recommend !!!
