Budget Five Islands Tour: Travel with Rib Boat

Budget Five Islands Tour, also known as Budget Blue Cave Tour, is our most affordable option for visiting Blue Cave and other top islands of mid Adriatic such as Hvar and Vis. Besides being the cheapest among the three, it is also the most exciting.

Budget version is cheaper and faster

When you choose our Budget Five Islands Tour, you go with our rib boats. Although budget version is the cheapest of three five islands tours, you still visit the same places. However, not only that you save some money but you also get more speed and time.

Rib boats are among the fastest speedboats since they weight less and are more built for speed, due to better structure of the hull and improved power to speed ratio. They cut through the waves more easily and spend less fuel, compared to other speedboats.

Get more time with Rib Boat

On average, it takes about 1 hour and 45 minutes from Split to our first destiantion, Blue Cave. When you arrive to Blue Cave, you have to wait to get inside and the sooner you arrive, the less you wait.

Rib boats need about 1 hour and 15 min for the same distance. However, 30 minutes can mean that you arrive in front of 20 other ships which can save you 1 to 2 hours of waiting infront of the cave. So, you don’t get 30 minutes more. You actually get 90 to 150 minutes more time for swimming, sightseeing and snorkeling. 

This is one of the reasons why our budget five islands tour is so popular, especially during peak of the season when the weather is always fine and there isn’t such need for closed speedboats.

1) Budget 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) Budget Five Islands Tour: Stiniva Cove

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) Budget Five Islands Tour: Budikovac Island

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) Budget 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) Budget 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.

Suprise destination

Since our Budget Five Islands Tour provides more speed and time for sigtseeing the islands, we often stop on one and sometimes even two additional destinations.

Additional destinations include town of Komiža, Porat beach, Monk Seal Cave and Stončica bay on Vis. When it comes to visiting some of these suprise destinations, it depends where are we at the moment and how much ahead of the time we are.

This is only possible with Budget Five Islands Tour, thanks to the speed of Rib boats.

WHICH ISLANDS/LOCATIONS WE VISIT?

We stop at Biševo¸ Vis¸ Budikovac¸ Hell Islands (Pakleni otoci) and Hvar. Among these five¸ Hvar and Vis are among the biggest islands of mid Adriatic.

Lagoon at Budikovac island and Blue Cave on island of Biševo are located around Vis. Palmižana beach at Hell islands¸ located in front of Hvar¸ is the best place to have lunch.

Five Islands Tour is composed in a way that the places we visit are one of the best beaches of mid Adriatic¸ natural phenomena you simply have to visit such as Blue Cave and one of the most popular locations in Croatia such as Hvar.

On this kind of tour you are never bored since each place is stunning¸ yet different from the previous one.

WHAT TO EXPECT & WHAT TO BRING?

First destination is the Blue Cave on Biševo which is also the furthest point from Split. It takes between 1 hour and 20 minutes up to 1 hour and 50 minutes to reach it¸ depending on the speedboat.

After the Blue Cave¸ each of the following destinations is 10 to 20 minutes away from the previous one. Only the return back from Hvar to Split takes between 45 to 60 minutes.

We recommend you bring a shirt with long sleeves¸ especially if you are going a on a Five Islands Tour in spring or early fall. Afterall¸ we are going with a speedboat.

Besides the bathing suit¸ you might want to bring a towel¸ sunglasses¸ sunscream¸ hat as well as food¸ snacks or lunch money.

On the other hand¸ besides the boat¸ fuel¸ the crew¸ free drinks and the tickets¸ safety gear and snorkeling equipment are also included in the price.

WHAT ABOUT LUNCH?

Although you have free drinks on the boat¸ lunch is not included in the price. However¸ you have few options.

Cheaper option includes bringing your own snacks and food which doesn’t need to be in a refrigerator. You can also buy some snacks and food in local market¸ when we stop at Hvar.

More expensive option includes having a lunch in one of restaurants at Hvar or Hell Islands. Just remember that these two places are a bit expensive.

Usually the cheapest lunch in a restaurant¸ at Hvar or Hell Islands¸ is 100 kuna which is around 14 euros for one person.

GET 2 FOR THE PRICE OF 1

Since Hvar is the last destination on Five Islands Tour¸ before returning to Split¸ you can use this to your advantage.

If you want to stay for a few days on the most popular Adriatic island¸ you can join Blue Cave Tour¸ visit all the best places and stay in Hvar¸ instead of returning to Split.
