Best day of our trip!

We absolutely loved our day, unfortunately due to high tides the Blue Cave was closed. This was explained to us before we got on the boat in the morning and constantly communicated throughout the day as the guide explained the tides may change. Sadly in our case they didn’t but our guide took us to some smaller caves in the cliff face which were so interesting, he had a lot of knowledge and was able to answer any questions - we didn’t feel like we’d missed out at all. The green cave was wonderful, water was a little cold but fine once you get in, all snorkelling equipment was provided and we took full advantage. The other stops such as Komiza, Palmizana and Stiniva were beautiful and again our host had a lot of knowledge. Our favourite stop was Komiza it was absolutely beautiful and we wouldn’t have had a clue about it had it not been for this trip!
What an excellent day!

Fantastic day! The boat (the one on the left in the photo with boats in it) was luxurious, far far better than we expected for a tourist day trip. We all had room to spread out, comfy seats, well protected from the wind whilst you’re underway and had a toilet on board. You could also sit on the front of the boat whilst it wasn’t moving, to sunbathe and look at the views. Our crew Ante and Mateya (forgive my poor spelling!) were both excellent - professional and super friendly. The blue cave was beautiful, as was the smallest beach in Croatia and the Pakleni islands. The green cave was ok but could probably give it a miss. Felt the timings were right throughout the day, we didn’t feel rushed or that we were spending too long at any stop. Would recommend bringing a waterproof phone case as some stops you can only access by going through the water and they are beautiful so you’ll definitely want to take photos to remember them. Book this tour, you won’t regret it!
Do this tour!

We had the most memorable experience with HvarBoats! Matt took us on our 8-hr charter - it was just me and my husband on the boat, as it was our special honeymoon trip! We saw so much, and Matt was an amazing guide. We went all over Vis and the Pakleni Islands, swam at a variety of private/secluded beaches, he took us to cool off-the-beaten-path caves, and he brought us to a super authentic restaurant in Vis (Konoba Zbondini) which was actually in the movie Mamma Mia. He really listened to what we wanted from our experience, and then made so many amazing recommendations throughout the day. We let him lead the way and it was the most fun part of our trip. Lola was also great to work with, was extremely flexible and kind in helping us get booked and through to payment.
