    The Things You’ll See!

    On Blue Cave tour from Split get the ultimate snapshot of central Dalmatia. Lay your eyes on the most beautiful natural scenery in Croatia – the memorable Blue Cave on Biševo island. Enjoy the effects of light refraction created by the sun entrance into cave’s amazing silvery-blue color.

    Island Vis

    Witness the reflection of sun on the white floor through the water, that fills the cave with blue color and makes the objects in the water look silver.

    After the Blue Cave we head towards the Monk seal cave. It is the longest cave on the island Biševo, 160 meters long and it gained its name after the Mediterranean Monk seal, a very rare type of seal, which used to reside there. After a long period of almost complete absence, only since recent years can they can be seen again in the Adriatic sea. We stop here for simply unbelievable experience of discovering hidden beauties of nature.

    From the cave explorations we stop by and enjoy in the swimming and snorkeling at the 600 m long Stiniva cove, the most celebrated cove on the entire island.

    Budikovac lagoon

    On our way back from island Vis we will stop at the nearby Budikovac island. Together with the two little islets, Budikovac island forms a beautiful lagoon ideal for swimming, snorkeling, sunbathing and underwater selfies.

    Pakleni islands

    Join us for a visit of the secluded bay on the Pakleni islands archipelago. Take a swim in the turquoise water or simply enjoy the sun.
