Blue Cave and 6 Island Hopping Tour from Split

Visit the stunning Blue Cave and Hvar on this day trip

Begin this exciting guided day trip from Split by being picked up at your hotel and then joining your guide.  
After a speedboat ride to the trendy island of Hvar, head to Biševo Island to get an up close and personal view of the legendary Blue Cave (entrance fee not included) Gawk at the cave, which boasts a natural glow and a magical blue hue that is extremely pleasing to the eye. Marvel at the intense blue and the flickering light of the cave as your guide explains the science behind the phenomenon. After spend about a half an hour enjoying some time on the beach here.
Later, have an optional swim in in the blue-green waters of the Green Cave, located on the island of Vis (10€ entrance fee not included) The cave is illuminated by the sun through an opening in the ceiling, creating all manner of magical colors. Then head to Budikovac Island to enjoy some leisure time on the beach. Or opt to strap on some snorkeling gear and take a dive in the ocean to see what lies below the surface of the water.
If all that swimming has worked up an appetite, head to the Pakleni Islands, a collection of 14 islands that are relatively untouched and untrammeled. Get off the boat at Palmižana Bay and sit down for a well-deserved lunch (at own expense) at one of the plethora of restaurants that line the coast. Take 2.5 hours to have a leisurely meal and explore some of the island.
When the time comes, meet up with the tour host again on the boat and head back to Hvar. Once there, enjoy free time in Hvar Town, the main city on the island and a town that is overflowing with history. Discover the Fortica Fortress, with its amazing views, and check out the many narrow lanes of the Old Town.
Your day trip then concludes with a drop-off back at the Riva in central Split.

This was my favorite thing we did while in Croatia! Our tour guide was friendly and personable. The boat was comfortable and the captain did a great job navigating the seas. The Blue Cave is a must see and Hvar is absolutely exquisite. I highly recommend taking this tour!

I wish we had been able to do snorkeling in the Blue Cave, but with it being the busiest season, I understood that we couldn't. Our tour guide was awesome for the trip and it was great to meet the others in our group from different countries. I am so happy we chose to do this tour!

The tour was really great! Be aware, you will be on a speed boat for most of the day so dress appropriately and wear your bathing suit underneath your clothes. There is also no lunch provided for you, so bring extra money. We did so much more than expected and it was definitely worth the money!

Due to weather conditions I did not make it for the trip. But I'm giving it full stars for it's excellent service. Sugaman Tours were patient with my million questions and replied me via SMS as well. It's a shame I did not go on to the tour with them, but I'm sure it would have been great fun :
