Private Sailing Tour: Blue Cave, Vis Island, Blue Lagoon & Pakleni Islands

Sailing in the Adriatic
This exciting full-day excursion covers the islands of Biševo, Vis, Drvenik Veli, and the Pakleni islands on a private sailboat—a great way to explore the Adriatic and visit a few of the stunning and individual islands that make up the Dalmatian coast. You'll set out from Hvar Town and first cruise to the east coast of Biševo Island, a popular, though often crowded destination, to see the mesmerizing iridescent blue waters of the Blue Cave (Modra špilja). Upon landing on the island, you'll transfer to a cave-friendly boat before floating inside the cave to discover the natural light-meets-water phenomena for yourself.

From Biševo, you'll then travel to the southern coast of nearby Vis Island and to the stunning pebble beach of Stiniva Bay. Obscured by towering cliffs, the hidden-away beach offers excellent crystalline waters for swimming and snorkeling as well as shade for a respite from the mid-morning sun. Here you can enjoy a traditional Croatian lunch until it's time to hoist anchor and continue your journey to the famous Blue Lagoon (Krknjaši) on the eastern end of the island of Drvenik Veli. Its sandy-bottom and turquoise waters create the perfect environment for a bout of swimming and snorkeling directly off the boat.

Next, you'll travel to sunbathe and swim the bays and inlets of the nearby Pakleni islands archipelago. A collection of 14 wooded and rocky islets located off the southern edge of Hvar Island, the Pakleni islands are the most beautiful part of the Hvar Riviera and are a favorite retreat for locals and the rich-and-famous seeking to escape the summer heat.
