Meeting location & time - 07:15h - (Address: Obala Lazareta 1, 21000 Split)
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"
Many (MANY) boats are heading out for the same tour, due to its popularity. (approx 1000 people a day, from Split, Trogir, Hvar etc)
Since 75% of the tour companies depart at 08:00h, it means we would have head start of 30 minutes, beating couple hundreds of guests to the Blue cave.
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, as a result.
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. Therefore, 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!
Komiža town / Vis island - Destination two
Declared TWICE to be the most beautiful fishermen village in the Mediterranean, hence Komiža is an amazing coffee break after a long ride. Sit down, relax, have breakfast and take some amazing photos. Or take a swim. Finally, it's up to you- it's a free program.
Green cave Take a swim at 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, probably as close as it gets to be the food you'd serve your dearest friends visiting your own house. :)
In addition, there is a beach approx 5 m from your lunch, with lots of things to do, like the 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 rather just chill. We stay 1,5-2h in Hvar, and we're back in Split approx at 18:00-18:30h.
