Travel | Croatia Catamaran Day Trip

Sunday, 4 December 2016



 One of the things we really wanted to do in Croatia was to visit some of the islands in the Dalmatian Archipelago and we did this on one of our last days on a catamaran tour from Split with Summer Blues Tours. We picked Summer Blues because they did a 12 hour cruise with a trip to Hvar, Brac and the Pakleni Islands alongside free unlimited food and drinks all days for 70 euros which, although it was still quite expensive, it was one of our treats of the holiday as everything else had been super cheap!



We started the day at 9am getting on the catamaran at the Split harbour and straight away we were offered drinks from the bar which had a great selection of soft and alcoholic drinks. It was lovely on the catamaran as we could relax, read a book and chat in the sunshine and then we had breaks when the boat stopped for swimming, once near Brac island and once near the Pakleni islands. Here we stopped for about an hour at each location and we could jump off the boat into the sea or go down the ladders and have a swim for a while or we could sunbathe on a netting portion towards one end of the boat.

The main destination of the trip was Hvar island which is one of the biggest and most famous islands in the archipelago. We stopped here for about 3 and a half hours which gave us a chance to explore Hvar. We took a walk around the town and found a really cool shop where we bought sarongs as we had been trying to find one for the whole trip to cover our shoulders from the sun as they kept getting burnt no matter how much suncream we put on! I bought a purple tie dye one from this shop and then we went down to the nearby beach and relaxed in the sun there.




On the way back to Split, it was really beautiful as the sun was setting and we managed to get some photos of the sunset from the boat! If/when I go back to Croatia, I would definitely want to explore more islands so I definitely recommend it as a treat/day out from Split!! We got some beautiful photos throughout the day!
