We’ll start our day with a morning cruise towards Island of Biševo and its Blue Cave.

However, at times high waves prevent the entrance to Blue Cave, which is something we shall not know before the morning designated for our visit. For this reason, entrance fees are paid on the spot. After a swim stop and lunch on board, we’ll continue cruising along many idyllic coves and bays towards Hvar, the sunniest Croatian island.
Hvar is one of the most popular and attractive Croatian tourist destinations and a meeting point of the international jet set.
