Standard Five Islands Tour: Explore the islands with bigger boat

Standard Five Islands Tour, also known as Standard Blue Cave Tour, is the most popular option for visiting Blue Cave and other top islands of mid Adriatic. You have more protection from the sun, wind and the sea as well as more space on bigger speedboat. 

More protection and comfort

Our speedboats for standard five islands tour include Enzo 35 and Mercan 34 which are specifically designed for transfers and excursions. They can fit 12 – 14 passangers in the front end cockpit which is coated in leather, while leaving plenty of space for comfort. 

The front part of these boats is covered with roof and equipped with transparent roll-down side covers for protection against sun, wind and the sea. There is also a big sun deck in the back, 3 m x 3 m, for those who want sunbathe on the boat.

On the sun deck, there is a stern platform with ladders. With their size of 11 meters, Enzo 35 and Mercan 34 are safe even when the sea is rough and yet small enough to visit all the hidden coves and beaches on the islands. 

1) Standard Five Islands Tour: Blue Cave

Our first destination is breathtaking natural phenomena and one of the most attractive locations on the Adriatic, Blue Cave. It is located on small island of Biševo, near Vis.

As sun’s rays penetrate through an underwater opening of the cave and reflect from the white bottom, they illuminate the cave blue. This game of light and reflection creates opportunity for some beautiful pictures and unforgettable experience.

Next to Hvar and Stiniva, it is one of the destinations you simply have to visit, otherwise you'll be sorry. The pictures you take will be a happy memory to your Croatian adventure which you can show to your friends and family.

2) Standard Five Islands Tour: Stiniva

Stiniva has been voted as the best beach in Europe, by tourists. It is secluded beach on the island of Vis which was created when the dome of the cave collapsed.

Now, what’s left is a pebble beach with crystal clear water, white sand at the bottom and a stunning clifftop backdrop. Its appeal is largely due to its inaccessible, hidden and peaceful charm, combined with unusual features. 

Since there is no road to Stiniva, people on the beach are mainly tourists from the boat excursion. However, due to its 5 m (16 feet) wide entrance and the rope that also blocks the path, most speedboats anchor in front of the entrance.

3) Standard Five Islands Tour: Budikovac

After visiting Stiniva cove, we stop on Budikovac Island which is one of small, secluded islands located near Vis.

We anchor in the beautiful turquoise lagoon which is the best spot on the tour, when it comes to snorkeling. You can use the snorkeling equipment, that is on the boat, for free. 

There is also a restaurant on the island where you can drink a coffee, have a brunch or go to a toilet.  

4) Standard Five Islands Tour: Hell Islands

After these picturesque locations, we’re off to beautiful Hell Islands. Despite being smaller than Vis or Hvar, Hell Islands are one of the most popular destinations. 

Two of the most popular beaches on the Hell Islands (Paklenjaci) are Palmižana and Carpe Diem beach. 

Although they are both nice beaches, Palmižana has several restaurants, lounge bar, botanical garden and a nice sandy beach. On the other hand, Carpe Diem is mostly a party beach, especially during the night. 

5) Standard Five Islands Tour: Hvar

Besides the clear sea, nice beaches and sunny days, you will found plenty of archaeological sites, stunning old buildings, monasteries, churches and ancient cultural monuments which speak about Hvar's rich and turbulent history.  

However, number one attraction is the old fortress located on the hill above the city. From the fortress you have beautiful panoramic view of Hvar and Hell islands. It takes only 15 minutes to the top, by foot.

On the other hand, if you’re looking for summer parties, fancy restaurants, small pubs or local taverns with Croatian music and homemade wine, you won’t need to look far. During summer, Hvar is known as the town that never sleeps.

Why choose standard option?

If you don't want to go with Rib boat (budget option) and you don't need the biggest and most expensive speeboat (deluxe option), than standard five islands tour is the one for you. 

You get plenty of comfort and protection for reasonable price with Mercan 34 and Enzo 35.
