Boat Tours Split Excursions
So I’m guessing you are here because you are interested in boat tours going from Split. Well then, you came to the right place. With our help you can choose which boat tour you would like to go on!
We are assuming you know what other tours in Split are available. If no, there’s a recent blog post talking about them. But we are here to focus on, as the title says, boat tours.
First why not start with a brief history about Split. This Adriatic coast line town became quite a sensation among fans of the popular TV series “Game of Thrones“. Several shots were filmed including one of Daenerys’s dragons in Diocletian’s palace basements.
Seeing as how the town grew in popularity many tours including boat tours, adventure tours and explorer tours were constantly getting booked. The most prominent ones being boat tours, after all, Split is a coastal town with plenty of nearby islands and sights to see that’s just a boat ride away. Whether you’re planning on visiting the charming Blue Lagoon to spend a day swimming and relaxing, or want to see and admire the famous Blue Cave near island Vis. There’s plenty of opportunities to decide upon to spend your Vacation on. Along with the fact you won’t run out of places to visit whilst Vacationing in Split town, as there are several islands you’ll need at least a day or two to see a part of.
The most well known islands being Hvar, the so called “Party island” that hosts music festivals and various night long beach clubs during the hot Summer weather.
There’s also a relatively secluded island that is one of our favourites called “Vis”. The island a popular spot for island hopping due to the island possessing some of the cleanest beaches in all of Croatia. Whilst many people know of a different island like Hvar, Vis has it’s own charm that’s hard to miss that we urge you to visit and see for yourself.
Vis is a hidden gem if you’re looking for the perfect place for a romantic getaway for couples, as well as offering a relaxing spot for solo travelers to kick their feet up and relax. The main town on the island that shares the name “Vis” has a horseshoe shape, allowing you to see the entire town from any spot alongside it; offering quite the picturous sight that’s well worth snapping a photo of.
Another positive about Vis would be it’s secluded nature. You won’t find large overblown packaged hotel deals on here as most of the accommodations on the island are privately owned Airbnb’s and such. Vis also has a lot of vineyards across it’s land, not to mention crystal clear beaches littering the shoreline. The beauty of the island garnering so much attention that it attracted even movie producers; namely Mamma Mia’s producers to film the second installment on Vis island.
There’s also Brać island that’s the closest island to visit from Split. Brač is also the largest island on the Dalmatian coast. The island hosts several interesting sights, from a stonemasonry school to a native olive oil museum. There’s also an opportune time to take a photo of your time in Brač by snapping one atop a 778m high summit of Vidova Gora.
Korčula is another island that prides itself on it’s natural large forest areas as well as for it’s lavender production. Whilst the island is quite a ways away, it’s certainly worth a visit just for the scenery. We do recommend staying overnight in order to see most of the islands beauty across a couple of days.
Another benefit to visiting Korčula would be the isolated nature of the island. Being constantly surrounded by nature instead of tourists like in most bigger cities. Korčula is also blessed with great weather throughout the year, mostly thanks to the mediterranean weather. The island offers also various unique experiences and tour offers to make your stay on the island even more eventful. Korčula receiving visitors from mainland Split and Dubrovnik by ferry mostly.
