Welcome to Brač Island


The tough living conditions meant that a lot of people moved to the mainland for work, leaving the interior almost deserted. Exploring Brač’s stone villages is a lovely experience.

The two main centres, Supetar and Bol, are quite different: Supetar is pleasant if unassuming, while Bol revels in its more exclusive appeal.

Split Island and Cave Tour with Brac Island Wine Tasting

This tour has daily departures, sailing to the most extraordinary locations in Central Dalmatia. Many islands have their own natural beauty, hidden beaches, caves, impressive coastline, and scenery. Taste and experience the culture in one of the most picturesque fishing villages. With a little luck you may even see dolphins or sea turtles in their natural habitat.  Our route: Departure Split Bisevo island, Blue cave Bisevo island, Monk seal cave (if weather is ok) Ravnik island, Green cave (pass by) Budikovac island, blue lagoon (Lunch & time for swimming/snorkeling) Vis island, Smokova bay, sandy beach  Hvar island, Hvar town (time for sightseeing) Brac island, Milna (Wine tasting) Arrival Split As we are operating on open sea, the nautical weather prognoses are sometimes unpredictable. There are some days during the year (very rare) with strong southwest wind, so it would be not possible to reach island of Bisevo and Vis. Under these sea/weather conditions the Blue Cave and Monk Seal Cave are closed as the entrance of the caves are small. In these situations we change the tour to a another route. Depending on the wind direction it can be the Pakleni islands, Hvar and Brac, lunch at blue lagoon Marinkovac and wine tasting included. Another option is Drvenik island, Vela Rina sandy beach and Krknjasi blue lagoon, lunch on island Solta at a unique location (restaurant Sampjer), wrecksnorkeling in Nejucam and of course wine tasting on island Brac. So the tours will be amazing for sure and of course for everyone there is the option to cancel the tour. We do not want disappointed guests, that's why we make this comment ''honesty is the best policy''. Hope for your understanding.

Hvar - Brac - Solta: Sunny Hvar, golden brac and undiscovered Solta

Sunny morning, the skipper will be waiting for you on the agreed meeting point with one of our luxury speed boats. Only moments later, you will be cruising trough the beautiful Adriatic sea. One pleasant hour later, we will reach the Pakleni islands, our first stop of the day. This group of islands in the Hvar archipelago is the perfect place for our first swim of the day. The azure water will entice you to jump in and experience the natural beauties. After we finish our first swim of the day, it is time to get dressed and head to the nearby Hvar town. You will have enough free time to explore this historic town and enjoy the coffee break on the town's Riva. We recommend climbing the Fortica fortress. The view is simply amazing. After we finish our coffee break and sightseeing it is time to hop back into the boat and head for the secret Murvica beach on the island of Brac. Only 45 minutes later, you will be able to enjoy the lonely beach. You will have the beach only for yourself. This "Golden horn type of beach is everything you could wish for. Quiet, sandy beach with azure water will be your paradise for the next 1.5 h. We will provide you with the snorkeling equipment so you can also explore the underwater life.Our next stop is going to be the secret military tunnel. This secret place was used as a hideout for the warships and submarines at the time of Yugoslavia. But even though this is a great piece of the Croatian history, this is not the main reason of our visit. The "Tarzan" rope placed in the middle of the tunnel as the means of getting from one way of the tunnel to another is quite fun. No matter the age, you will find it fun to swing and jump into the water. With the secret tunnel, we finish our Brac island visit. It is about time to have lunch, and for that we have chosen Stomorska village on the island of Solta. We will dock our boat right in front of the restaurant, so you can enjoy the perfect Dalmatian food just next to the water.Even though it is hard to resist the luring smell of the domestic kitchen, lunch is optional. And those who are not feeling hungry can take a walk trough the village or have a swim on the nearby beach.After Stomorska, we have one more stop before we head back home. The Necujam bay is only 10 minutes away and it holds a secret. The sunken ship inside the bay is a perfect place for snorkeling. After our last stop of the day, we will be heading back to the starting point. It takes only 30 minutes to get back to Split from Necujam bay.
