Split: 45-minute Semi-Submersible Submarine Trip
- Duration: 45 minutes
Your semi-submarine "Marijeta" departs from the promenade of Riva, located in the center of Split Harbor. This unique vessel offers a pleasant and safe tour, and is ideal for adults and children of all ages. The vessel remains above sea level at all times, while its hull, the underwater observatory, sits 1.5 meters (5 feet) below the surface. Through your own personal viewing window you can watch the abundance of marine life as you pass it by. Since you can leave the cabin and walk up on the deck at any time, you are also free to enjoy the spectacular views of the historical area of Split, complete with the Palace of Diocletian.
Could only see clearly out one side of the boat for some reason, so everybody was crowded on one side.
Meet your skipper and the group at the tour partner's office on Riva, city promenade. Hop on a speedboat and enjoy a 90 minute thrilling ride from Split to Biševo Island to the highlight feature, the Blue Cave. With its silvery-blue color, created by light refraction of sunlight entering through a crack in the stone, it leaves nobody indifferent. Stiniva was declared the most beautiful beach in Europe in 2015. Your next destination is a small paradise on earth situated between 3 islets, Blue Lagoon on Budikovac island. Blue lagoon is a favorite destination for many guests on the Blue cave tour. Beautiful clear sea, beach, and a small bar make this place a perfect place to take a swim or snorkel, laze on the beach, or stroll on the pretty island. The crew will provide you with snorkeling equipment. Swimming is not allowed in the Blue Cave. The next location will leave you breathless...
It is a good one day tour but it can be adjusted a little to give more time in hvar which was rushed by the guide and May be cut off one of the swimming island which was totally not worth. The driver was nice but the guide can be a little more enthusiastic. She was in bad mood for some reason.
Begin your day with a drive that takes you between the Dalmatian coast and the hinterland, as you enjoy views of Trogir, Split, and the surrounding landscape that features abundant greenery and picturesque villages. On this full-day excursion your first stop will be in Šibenik to see the sights of the town, including the UNESCO-protected St. Jacob’s Cathedral. As you continue the drive you’ll have great views of the coast and offshore islands, and hear from your guide about the history of the area. The next stop is in Krka National Park, at the Krka waterfalls. Walk along the wooden paths through the park’s stunning scenery, hear the singing of rare birds, and see water mills that have been in action for centuries. See the magnificent Skradinski buk, the biggest waterfall in the park, and one of the most beautiful cliff waterfall in Europe.
The tour was really nice, it is a good option to go to Krka if you don't have a car. It is a plus that you stop in Sibenik on the way (maybe it would be nice to have some more time there?) and then you go swimming in Primosten. The price is ok, taking into consideration that the entrance to Krka is 200 kunas. The guide Nina was funny and professional. Thanks!
Start your day bright and early with a pick up service from the designated meeting point. Here, you will meet your English-speaking driver/guide, and shortly after, set off on your journey. Sit back and relax as you enjoy the 3.5-hour pleasant drive through the hinterland of Dalmatia and Lika region until you reach your destination for the day - the Plitvice Lakes National Park. Plitvice Lakes National Park, this area of outstanding beauty, has been protected since 1979. It features 16 emerald-turquoise lakes that are connected to each other by a fabulous system of waterfalls. These beautiful waters are surrounded by natural green forests and amazing landscapes that will take your breath away. The park is also home to different animal and plant species which makes it even more precious. Along the way you will stumble upon places with absolutely phenomenal panoramic views, making it a fa...
One of the most beautiful national park I been. Well organized nature fantastic.

Great experience ! Just a bit disappointed on the time spent on Carpe diem beach which was low compared to the time spent on the blue lagoon but again, the tour was so good.
Embark on an adventure and see the Diocletian’s Palace, the oldest core of the City of Split. Marvel at one of the best preserved and unique examples of Late Antiquity structures. Be inspired by its exceptional archaeological, historical and artistic value. Discover a palace built on an inadequate geological base which was the main reason why the imperial residence was constructed above the monumental basement area. The cellars of the palace can be found within the southern half of the building. The floor plan mirrors the layout of Diocletian’s residence due to the fact that the structure in the basement acted as support for the walls above. See the halls of the cellar which were used as entrance to the palace via waterway. Nowadays, the substructures present a significant and the largest preserved ancient complex of the underground vaulted premises in the world. Game of Thrones fa...

This place is absolutely awesome! A great impressive fortress full of the history of this part of Croatia and Europe. The views from way up there on that clifftop perch are extremely impressive. This is absolutely worth a visit. If you are expecting Games of Thrones things... don't. Nothing really left here to see from that.

The tour with Ivan was great. He picked us up at our hotel with a brand new Mercedes at 9:00 (we asked for that time) and took us to the park. The park was beautiful and since it was November it was almost empty which was great. Ivan took us on a small walking tour inside the park and then he gave us some time so we can enjoy it ourselves which was actually a nice touch. On the way back we stopped at Trogir where he took us on a tour as well. It was an amazing tour. Thank you.

Great crew, great boat, great music and especially great places ! No waiting time at the blue cave. Thank you !
This is a great experience. 6 Islands in one day. Although it is a little pricy, it is worth it!
Nice museum showing how Split evolved over time - exhibits had English descriptions.
Interesting activity to do in addition to the bell tower / crypt / cathedral
Very nice day, thank you for the kindness of our guides.
