Blue Cave Tour From Omis
Experience one of the most exciting boat trips from Omis and enjoy a fun day full of action along the most beautiful islands in Dalmatia. Visit astonishing natural treasures Blue Cave, Stiniva Cove, Hvar island and swim in the clearest lagoons of Dalmatia.
Our journey starts in Omis on the main square (Poljički Trg), from there we will go to pick-up the other passengers in Split. Here we will embark a very comfortable and fast speedboat. What better way than using the fastest means of transportation to reach the remote island of Biševo, where the Blue Cave awaits you to be amazed by its magical colors. After only a 90-minute ride from Split, you will find yourself inside Modra Špilja, exactly at the right time to see the sun rays entering the hole in the bottom of the cave and being reflected off the cave’s white limestone, thus creating the magical play of blue and silver colors. Please note that our speedboat trip is completely safe and suitable for everyone.
This fun day continues with a short visit to the Monk Seal Cave and a stop at the astonishing and awarded Stiniva beach on island Vis. The latter is accessible only by boat or a challenging hike down the steep hill, due to the fact the high cliffs almost completely surround this beautiful stretch of land. A nice break for a refreshing dip in the clear waters of the Adriatic Sea will be provided for at the lagoon Budikovac, our next stop.
We continue to the Pakleni islands archipelago, where you will enjoy free time on the little island Palmižana to explore its verdant vegetation and the blue sandy lagoon. Try some of the exquisite meals or cocktails at the bars and restaurants by the sea.
After the pleasant rest on Palmižana, we head to the attractive town of Hvar, which is just 15 minutes away. While entering the port of Hvar, take a look at all the luxurious yachts that line the seafront promenade of this very fashionable destination. Here in Hvar, you will have several hours on your own for visiting historical sights (like the oldest public theatre in Europe) or maybe grabbing a cocktail at the famous beach bar Hula Hula Hvar, which became world famous for its after beach parties.
Back on board after exploring Hvar, we head back to Split and from there directly back in Omis. The Blue Cave tour from Omis will surely be a highlight of your holiday in Croatia, so don’t miss it.

Biševo’s bay of Balun, our first stop, hides one of the best treasures in this corner of the world that you are about to discover. The Blue Cave is one of the best caves in Croatia and truly a magical place. The blue and silver colors that illuminate the entire cave are caused by the sun’s reflections off the white limestone bottom and this phenomenon is only visible in the hours before noon when the sunrays enter the hole in the cave’s bottom in the right angle. Have your cameras at hand to capture these striking moments! Swimming inside the cave is forbidden, regardless of the rumors you might have heard.
