Three Islands Tour is a full day excursion with a big boat to islands of Šolta, Krknjaši and Drvenik. Besides swimming, snorkeling and sightseeing, lunch and drinks are also included in the price. It is one of the most popular trips, considering what you get and how much it costs for a full day tour. All for only 48 € per person.
Excursion is best suited for families and people that prefer peaceful trip instead of speedboat adventure. Not only that we go with a big boat but this is inexpensive boat tour where you also have lunch and drinks included in the price.
We go to the first line of islands which are closer to Split and unlike speedboats, this type of boats spend less fuel and can take more people onboard. This leads to a better price for you, the consumer which is why full day tour with a big boat is cheaper than half day tour with a speedboat.
Also, if you're afraid of speedboats, want to go with kids on the tour, you like jumping from a top deck of a big boat or you just want more shade or more space onboard, than this trip is made for you.
When it comes to lunch, you can choose between fish, meat or vegetarian menu . You also have free drinks on the boat, including water, juice and wine. If you want beer, you have to buy it or bring your own.
Island of Čiovo and Nečujam bay is our first stop on Three Islands Tour. We anchor near the ancient shipwreck which is a perfect spot for swimming, sunbathing and jumping off the boat.
However, the shipwreck under the sea provides great opportunity for snorkeling and exploring the secrets of an old and once lost time and history of Šolta island. You can grab snorkeling equipment from the boat and dive underneath. It's free.
That being said, you can also go to the island and explore nearby sights such as Diocletian's Pond or enjoy in the scenery of crystal clear sea surrounded by lush green forest of pine trees, while the crickets and waves hitting the shore provide calming atmosphere in the bay.
Also, we usually organize lunch in a restaurant at Maslinica or at the Blue Lagoon. That being said, sometimes lunch is served on the boat during Three Islands Tour on a cruise between our first(Nečujam) and our second destination(Maslinica) which depends on the number of people onboard and the boat itself.
Maslinica is our second destination on Three Islands Tour. It is small, charming town situated in a bay on the western part of Šolta island.
It was once a fishing village, but it slowly turned into a tourist and nautical center of the island. Maslinica, which on Croatian means olive, welcomes each year an increasing number of guests and lovers of orchards.
On the western side of town, you will find pebble beaches and beach bars, while there are plenty of restaurants and few markets in the center of the town. You will also notice old houses made of stone and historical castle Martinis Marchi, surrounded by pine trees.
If you want to take nice pics of the place, we recommend climbing on the small hill above castle Martinis Marchi from where you can see entire town, besides the beaches which are on the western side. In the heart of the town there are small shops where you can buy souvenirs as well as lavander and olive oil which are synonymus with the town and the island.
Our third destination and maybe the best place on the tour is secluded lagoon surrounded by two small islands (Krknjaši) and bigger island of Drvenik. Blue Lagoon is picturesque location perfect for snorkeling , thanks to turquoise color of the sea and shallow sandy sea bed.
Nature has created something special here as sun rays reflect from the white sandy bottom which creates colors and shades of blue and green that you will remember for a long time.
Although snorkeling gear is free , there aren't always enough masks for everybody but you can bring your own, if you want. Speedboats can fit up to 12 to 14 people, while our boats for Three Islands Tour can fit between 60 to 120 people.
Also, since the lagoon is quite shallow and the boats are quite big, we usually anchor in the middle of the lagoon. That being said, many of our guests prefer jumping from the boat, especially from its top deck, the sundeck.
We visit Čiovo, Drvenik and Šolta with our biggest boats, Humac, Blaga and Solo. These boats have two decks. First deck is proteced from the sun, while second deck is a sundeck with sunbeds or benches lined up on both sides.
Boats are 15 - 20 meters (50 - 66 feet) long and 4 to 5 meters (13 - 16 feet) wide with powerful diesel engines, water tank, fridge, GPS, VHF, full safety equipment and a toilet.
