Tour program of the boat trip to Trogir and Blue Lagoon:
Meet 15 minute before the departure time in Split at Ulica Tome Nigera 1.
We will set sail for the Blue Lagoon, situated between the two Krknjaši islands. The ride from Split to the Blue Lagoon lasts approximately 30 minutes, during which we will cruise the channel between the islands of Šolta and Čiovo. The Blue Lagoon in Croatia is a bright blue paradise, pure bliss for snorkelers thanks to its crystalline sea and sandy seabed full of crushed sea shells which, under the sunlight, pops in various shades of blue. We will stop here for approximately 2 hours, during which you can swim, snorkel, sunbathe and explore the famous pebble beach surrounded by pine trees.
After two hours, we will leave for our second stop: Trogir, one of the best-preserved examples of Romanesque-Gothic architecture in central Europe and under UNESCO World Heritage protection. With a stop of 1.50 hours, you will experience the special atmosphere of the town and vibrant life as you wander through its narrow streets and along the sun-washed waterfront. You can walk the entire old town in about 45 minutes so you will have enough time for refreshment in one of numerous bars and restaurants located on the main promenade or inside the city itself.
We will meet again on our boat and finish our Blue Lagoon and Trogir boat tour by passing under Trogir’s bridge and speeding again towards the city of Split.
The tour will end around 1:00pm or 7:00pm.

Dalmatia is a strip of land on the Adriatic Sea, in the southern part of Croatia, bordering the Balkan mountains. The name Dalmatia derives from the ancient Dalmatian people which in turn derives from the Illyrian “delme” or “sheep”. Dalmatia stretches for more than 6000 kilometres of coastal tourist towns and over 750 between islands, islets and reefs parallel to the coast. The climate of Dalmatia is mild and the sea has spectacular colours and the morphology of the area contributes to the creation of gulfs and bays that are at least worth a visit. In particular, Central Dalmatia is full of well-known Croatian tourist destinations such as the islands of Hvar and Brac, Solto, Ciovo and Trogir. If you are close to Split, then immerse yourself in the beauty of the Croatian landscape and sea and choose a boat tour to the magnificent Blue Lagoon and the extraordinary city of Trogir: you will be enchanted.
One of the most famous places near Split in Croatia is the Blue Lagoon in Krknjaši cove. Once you reach the archipelago and its natural beauty, you will be immersed in the unspoilt beauty and among the most crystal clear waters of the whole region. The bay of Krknjaši, or blue lagoon, is a piece of sea with a deep turquoise colour, characterised by beautiful pebble beaches and sandy seabed like in the tropics. Here you won’t find mass tourism, but luxurious boats that love sailing and swimming in these extraordinary waters.
If you are in Croatia and want to know what to visit, then Trogir is a destination not to be missed. Trogir, in fact, is a medieval pearl enclosed in a small island connected to the mainland and the island of Ciovo. In Trogir you will find a treasure trove of art and history, an open-air museum with its UNESCO-protected sites, historic centre and century-old buildings. Trogir, also known as Traù, derives from the Greek word Tragos meaning “goat”. Over time the city of Trogir has experienced various dominations, from the ancient Greeks, passing through the Romans, then the Slavs, Croats, Hungarians, until the Venetian rule, passing to Croatia after the Austrian and French governments.
Trogir is located in the heart of Dalmatia and holds more than two thousand years of history within its fascinating city walls. To reach Trogir you can choose a boat tour from nearby Split and have the right time to visit Trogir together with the beauty of the area in which this medieval treasure chest is immersed.
Arriving by boat on the island of Trogir, you can’t help but visit its historic centre, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997. Walk through the narrow streets overlooked by beautiful palaces of the Romanesque and Renaissance period, when Trogir was at its heyday. Enjoy the promenade and taste some typical local dishes in the middle of the history of this place: it will be a very special experience. Among the things to visit in Trogir, we recommend the splendid Cathedral of San Lorenzo, built between the thirteenth and fifteenth centuries by the Venetians. Enter through the Romanesque portal with at the sides the statues of Adam and Eve resting on typical Venetian lions. When you’re inside, take a look at the Chapel of St.John and the treasure of the cathedral which contains precious pieces and illuminated manuscripts.
Another recommended stop is the imposing Kamerlengo Castle, a typical example of a medieval fortress. Admire the power of this 15th century building and imagine being part of the people of Trogir during the Middle Ages.
The boat tour departing from Split includes a visit to two of the most beautiful places in Dalmatia: the Blue Lagoon and the medieval islet of Trogir. You will have 2 hours to swim, sunbathe or snorkel in the beautiful crystal clear waters of Krknjaši Bay, with the equipment we provide on board. It will seem to be in another world between the spectacular colours of the sea and the gravel sand surrounded by pine trees. After that, still sailing with a professional crew, you will arrive on the islet of Trogir, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1997: a small pearl of history preserved in the middle of the Croatian sea. During the tour, in addition to snorkelling equipment, you will also have water and windbreakers at your disposal.
Lunch is not included in this tour, but you will have enough time to eat in one of the many bars or in the centre of the beautiful historic village of Trogir. You will have the opportunity, in fact, to have lunch admiring a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1997.
