Today we’ll cruise to the Island of Biševo and its Blue cave, one of the most famous natural attractions in the whole of the Adriatic Sea. Blue Cave is a water-logged cave that can be approached only by boat. Sunbeams penetrating through its submarine opening get reflected from the white bottom floor, creating a magical effect of deep aquamarine and shiny silver light, mystifying Cave’s visitors. However, sometimes high waves prevent the entrance to Blue Cave, which is something we shall not know before the time designated for our visit.
In case we can’t enter Blue Cave due to such sea conditions, you will get a full ticket refund. After a swim stop and lunch we’ll continue cruising along many coves and bays, towards Hvar, the sunniest Croatian island. Hvar is one of the country’s most attractive tourist destinations and a meeting point of international jet setters. Upon our arrival to Hvar, a local English speaking guide will walk you through this unique city, introducing you to its millennia-long history, culture and a way of life, along with a few island’s peculiarities, such as the traditional farming of lavender. Afterward, you’ll have an evening on your own to explore and dine in one of numerous family-owned restaurants and taverns.
