Full description
Meet your skipper and other tour guests at the seafront in Hvar where you'll board a speed boat for an adventurous ride, while enjoying the sun and waves. The first stop is the Green Cave on the Islet of Ravnik, well-known for its gorgeous colour. Here you will have the chance to swim inside the cave and enjoy the natural, emerald light show. Your skippers will share interesting stories and fun facts about the places see.

Next, head to the Island of Biševo, where the Blue Cave, one of the wonders of the Adriatic coast, is located. After reaching Biševo, disembark from the speedboat and board the Blue Cave’s shuttle craft, which will take you directly inside the cave. You will have enough time to take pictures and enjoy the silvery-­blue color created by the sun as it bathes the inside of the cave through an opening in the roof and is reflected back by the sandy sea bottom below.

From the Blue Cave, head to a small, hidden bay named Stiniva Cove where you can jump from the speedboat into the sea to take a short swim through the Stiniva Gates. You'll find yourself inside a beautiful cove, surrounded by magnificent rocks. Enjoy swimming or get out on the pebble beach of Stiniva to take breathtaking photos, sun bathe, or have a cold drink at the beach bar.

The Pakleni Islands, a chain of islands located right opposite the town of Hvar, are the final stop on the tour. Discover one of the archipelago’s most popular bays, Vinogradišce at Palmižana, where you can have a seaside lunch at one of the best restaurants in the Adriatic. After lunch, you'll have time to enjoy more swimming, relaxing, or sunbathing before you head back to Hvar at sunset.

Great day out seeing the sights. Unfortunately we could not see the blue cave due to a high tide but our skipper was welcoming and made the day worth while. Unsure whether the entrance fee to the caves out of season is required as swimming into them is an option however you are still required to pay and people in our group had no cash as they were not made aware beforehand.

Our guides Boris & Lucia were fantastic guides. They helped accommodate our children & went out of their way to make sure we had a great day. They even took us to a secret cave on the way back. We recommend this tour 100%. Jane, Steve, Gabe & Jude from Australia

This tour is worth every penny! We lucked out and got put into a bigger boat with an awesome crew. They were informative, friendly and fun and make the experience a once in a lifetime. We heard the blue cave lines can be up to 4 hours but we only waited half an hour...they were definitely beautiful, but not sure I would have waited 4 hours for it. The water is gorgeous and all of the stops are different from eachother. Great time!
