What we offer
TUES, WED, THURS, FRI, SAT / DEPART 10:30AM
BLUE CAVEAs we set off from the main pier in Donje Celo, the boat will circumnavigate to the left, passing by the magnificent, untouched cliffs of Kalamota. After 30 minutes you’ll arrive at Kalamota’s renowned blue cave. The skipper will anchor the boat here where you’ll be able to dive into the crystal clear waters and enter the natural beauty of the blue cave. The reflection of the sun on the white sand of the ocean floor casts everything in a stunning blue light. Those who wish to swim in the cave can easily enter and exit the water using the boat's ladder. For those who are a little less sure of themselves in the water; there is the opportunity to borrow a life jacket to help you into the cave. A skipper will always be on hand to assist. As we finish off in the blue cave, you’ll then pass by the island’s lighthouse and head to the other side of our island to the second village of Gornje Celo where you’ll be able to relax and enjoy the sandy beach, restaurant or bar before the boat ends your excursion back in Donje Celo.
PRIVATE TOUR TO BLUE CAVESIf you’d like to see the Blue Cave in all its glory and have the boat to yourselves, we offer private excursions. You can then explore the Blue Cave and take control of where you’d like to stop around the island to swim and snorkel. Excursions can be taken any day of the week, weather permitting. Private excursions can include transfers from the mainland (location dependent).
Duration: Approx. 6 hrs | Times: Mon & Wed at 10am
