Meeting location & time
We meet at the very waterfront promenade Riva, right in front of the Diocletian Palace’s southern basements entrance, AT OUR PIRATE SHIP “SANTA MARIA”
Usually, we depart at 08:00h but this is the private boat tour we’re talking about – YOU CAN DECIDE ON THE DEPARTURE TIME.
99% of the tour companies depart at 08:00h which means we would have head start of 30 minutes, beating couple hundreds of guests to the Blue cave.
Click to see our location on Google Steet View (Address: Obala Lazareta 1, 21000 Split) We’re exactly where the black motorcycle (scooter) is.
Private boat tour starts when your group has arrived and everybody is seated on the speedboat.
Blue cave – Destination one
Sightseeing of the Blue cave.
NEED TO KNOW: Blue cave itself is ruled by a company called “Nautički centar Komiža”. They are the ones selling tickets, getting the revenue and taking you inside of the Blue cave with their small boats. They are the ones to decide how long one stays inside, and it is usually 7-10 minutes. We can not influence that. : ( Nobody can![/banner]
Komiža town / Vis island – Destination two
Declared TWICE to be the most beautiful fishermen village in the Mediterranean, Komiža is an amazing coffee break after a long ride. Sit down, relax, have breakfast and take some amazing photos. Or take a swim. Up to you, really, it’s a free program.
Green cave Take a swim in the Green cave
Blue Lagoon / Budikovac island – Destination three
READ CAREFULLY: Green cave has recently (middle of July) been privatized by a certain business group from Zagreb, and the access is denied (they request additional payment to enter the cave, for the first ever)
All the tour companies have decided to fight their unfair behavior, so have we, and for that reason, we are going to the Green lagoon for additional swim and snorkeling, at the Budikovac bay.
Vis island / LUNCH – Destination four
Grilled lunch in the private bay guest house. Also, you can swim without disturbance, it’s private and peaceful.
GOOD NEWS: This is not a restaurant, but our own private summer house with lunch and drinks (coffee and ice cream too) just for our guests. Your lunch is home cooked (grilled) food, as close as it gets to be the food you’d serve your dearest friends visiting your own house. 🙂
There is a beach approx 5 m from your lunch, with lots of things to do, like stand-up paddle (extra cost, organized by a lady next doors), snorkeling etc
Hvar town- Destination five
Free time for sightseeing in Hvar town. It’s a free program, so you could go to the Fortress, get some coffee or maybe cocktails. Or just chill.
Paklinski islands – bonus destination
Enjoy a quiet bay for the last day’s swim before we go back to Split.
Usually, we depart at 08:00h but this is the situation:
It is top of the season, many many boats are heading out for the same tour.
That creates a huge cue for the Blue cave itself, and it might happen you would have to wait up to 2h to get inside.
And that messes up the tour.
To avoid that, we have decided to leave earlier: at 07:30h.
So we would meet at 07:15h instead of 07:45h.
99% of the tour companies depart at 08:00h which means we would have a head start of 30 minutes, beating couple hundreds of guests to the Blue cave. Again – it’s a private boat tour, so you could change the departure time to suit your needs.

Oh, one more thing: to clarify the cost:
Well, primarily by filling out the booking form and using PayPal. If you don't have it, you can pay after you've received an invoice by us, upon your booking inquiry. For booking any of our tours, you can pay only the down payment of 20%, while the doue amount can be paid on the day.
Yes you can, we have a credit card machine on the boat.
When you fill out "tour cart"requested fields, you'll get an E-mail confirmation upon payment.
Another easy question: you’ll get an E-mail, SMS/Whatsapp/Viber etc confirmation, and a booking voucher.
Any tour can be cancelled or postponed up to 48 hours prior to departure. That way you can get full refund, exchange for some other tour or you can postpone for some other day more suitable to your free time arrangements.
Well, we always try to keep in touch with our guests by exchanging full contact data: E-mails, phone numbers, accommodation address and contacts. If you are running late or not showing up, we’d appreciate if you called us you’re running late or similar. That way we can make an estimate can we find the time to wait for you, in order for you not to miss your tour. If you just do not show up, without 48h notice, unfortunately, you lose your deposit (same as missing your flight, eg).
Since we are talking about a boat tour at the sea, the thing that could prevent tour from happening is non-adequate weather forecast. In that case, you’d be informed and offered few options: full refund, postponing for some other day, or booking some other tour. If the weather gets bad during the tour itself (rise of the wind and waves, heavy rain etc), since it lasts for almost 12 hours, our captains reserve the right to alter the route and/or destinations after consulting with management and you (guests on board) because safety of our passengers always comes first. If by any chance the Blue cave itself gets closed due to the unfavorable weather conditions during the tour, guests would be refunded the Blue cave admission fee.
