We at Gecko have joined up with a great team from the Island of Brac to deliver the undoubted No 1 island boat tour from Split.
Last year we purposely did not offer any boat tours as we just couldn’t find the right partner – there’s a wide choice of possible collaborators but we just got concerned about the level of service offered by pretty much all of them!
Our reputation at Gecko is everything to us and the horror stories about overcrowded boats, boats repeatedly breaking down because of old and unserviced engines, total disregard of basic safety rules and equipment and sometimes just not showing up, abounded. Excusing the pun – the water was simply too choppy so we decided not to enter!
I’m really pleased so say that early guest feedback – the boating season only starts in May – is great and that the level of service we demand for our guests is being fully met by our partners – you can see our early season’s general trip advisor reviews on our trip advisor site Gecko trip advisor. I’m so pleased to say that the overall enthusiasm for our service level, conveyed by our guests in 2016, our 1st year of operation, is continuing just as strong – there is nothing that gives us a bigger thrill!!
Q – So why are our water tours different?
A – Unlike the standard fare, ALL our tours will be accompanied by an informative local guide who speaks English but we can also arrange French and Italian language guides on request. We include a guide to make the trip not just a journey in a boat (albeit through some amazing scenery) but far more informative re what you are seeing and the wider cultural context of the region. The boats we use are all modern and fully serviced and we NEVER take more than 12 guests per boat and were competitively priced to boot!
Our 6 island tour includes the following:
Pick up from Split (or alternative start by arrangement)
Island of Bisevo – Blue Cave
Stiniva Bay – Island of Vis
Budikovac Lagoon, via Green Cave
Island of Palmizana walkabout
Trip to Hvar and return to Split
