      Excellent day trying the coast with Stefan.
      Stefan was amazing. We had an excellent day of fun and relaxation swimming in the Adriatic. Everything we hoped for. Easy booking and commutation. Would highly recommend.

      Stefan is the man
      Had a great time from the get-go meeting our Skipper stefon Super friendly local went above and beyond to show us a great time Took us to all the hidden spots and a great restaurant and at the end, when he was dropping us off, my husband fell, dropped his sunglasses in the water, and Stefan with no hesitation dove in and found it for him. Been on many private boat tour, and this was by far the best, make sure to ask for him if you go on this tour

      Bumpy but fast & fun
      Great half day trip out from Split to see these islands. It was quite a windy day so we didn't go to the shipwreck as the ride was quite bumpy but good fun! Perina advised on the best place to go which was a lovely beach bar initially where we stayed an hour to wander and bathe and then onto the blue lagoon where we could relax on beds on the Gray line beach (which wasn't open yet) or swim in the water from the boat which was gorgeous! Then onto beautiful Trogir, could happily have spent more time here in the beautiful pebbled streets surrounded by the smells of seafood. We will have to visit again! Thank you Perina for the music and information & Ivan for the safe & speedy ride, a great afternoon!

      Enjoyed our day with Mayer charter . Nice guide and great service. We boarded in Trogir and because we continue our trip in split, it was possible to take our luggage with us. That was very good for us. Thank you very much for the awesome day.

      Beautiful but too much boat/driving time.
      Great captain, nice boat. Saw some really cool things. But distance between islands is very far. Of nine hours, we probably spent six or seven driving from one island to the other. If you are the type that enjoys the boat ride itself, it would probably be more enjoyable.

      Amazing experience!
      My girlfriend and I rented one of their 26ft boats for the entire day with a private skipper. We had an amazing time and would recommend this experience to anyone. The pick up location was ideal and our skipper showed us the best day by recommending certain things to do and areas to go see. The communication from start to finish was amazing and they are very transparent on costs with no hidden fees. Large selection of boats based on what you’d like spend and seems like they keep adding newer and nicer boats. Not one negative thing to say about this charter.

      Fantastic Family Day Out - Highly Recommended!
      Our experience with Carlo was absolutely terrific and stands out as one of the best travel excursions I've ever been on. Our group included everyone from small children to older adults, and Carlo accommodated all ages wonderfully. He provided us with excellent recommendations for the day, taking into account the weather and the presence of young children. His suggestions were perfect, and everyone had an amazing time! Carlo ensured we had several stops throughout the day without ever making us feel rushed at any location. His expert driving and warm hospitality were greatly appreciated. Throughout the day, he shared fascinating insights into Croatian history and culture, enriching our experience. We highly recommend Mayer Charter Day Tours and definitely suggest asking for Carlo!

      The sailing to and from the attractions was so much fun, and the islands are stunning. Toni and Frankie were great guides, and were very knowledgeable and entertaining. I would definitely book this tour again.

    Long but fun speed boat ride, broken up in 1.5hr ride to Blue cave, then 10min-30min between each stop thereafter and 1hr back to Split for ~5.40pm. Tony drove us at a nice fast speed throughout and very safely. Lea was the guide and very friendly, gave some high level info on each place (great for us but if you want a full on detailed tour guide you will not enjoy this tour). Fun music playlist that kept us entertained throughout the journey whilst taking the view and sun in.

    Blue cave was well organised and fun but definitely pricey for what it is (18euro per person). Good thing is, you don’t have to and can wait at the cafe or visit the island whilst others queue to transfer to the smaller boat to get in the cave.

    Blue Lagoon was nothing special but a nice swimming spot, many little fish to observe with the provided snorkel equipment.

    Hvar is very pretty (and expensive!!) as expected.

    Overall a great 10.5hr day, ticking all the big ticket items of things and places to see in the area in one excursion!

    Tip - accept the windjacket on offer at the start of the boat ride as you’ll be chilly in the morning and the evening without a light jumper.

    Very nice day of cruising through the islands around Split.
    We were welcomed in the early morning by Filippa and Toni (sorry for the name errors 🤭), with a nice playlist for a trip to the islands.
    Punctuated by visits and swimming, the highlight of the show remains the Blue Grotto, impressively beautiful (beware, 100 kn/pers more). We change boats for a short passage of 15 minutes through the cave and some explanations. Back on our speedboat, Toni and Filippa take us to the islands, to snorkel and visit the small ports.

    Very nice excursion that allows you to escape from the bustle of Split. Filippa and Toni were brilliant, friendly and very attentive skippers. Thanks again !

    An amazing day. Leah and Carlo were brilliant hosts. The blue cave was beautiful and cost 18€ I’d recommend getting cash out in advance so you can pay. Carlo gave us a cracking lunch recommendation in Hvar. A good day.

    Amazing trip with these guys:
    Day was well planned, stops where in beautiful places and we had some time in all places.
    We had a cool boat and feeled a bit luxurys, when we looked the other boats that went out at the same time from Split.
    Skipper Mario, that we had was world class, ride was smooth and told backstorys of the locations, at the same time was not too overwhelming with guiding like some guides often are.

    Something to know when going to trip- take some cash with you. Many places on islands dont have card payment and it's good to drink coffee with best view for you, not the place that accepts the card.

    Vlatka & Tony are passionate about what they do.. We booked the trip for April 8th and later we got a message from the company advising and checking if we can move the trip to 9th April, as the blue wind direction was south on April 8th and which means , we wont be able to go into the Blue Cave.

    We went with their advise, the communication is great , we arrived at the starting point at 8am and the tour started as planned...

    Vlatka & Tony are local people and they seem to love what they do, they give information when needed and available to clarify any queries...

    We did see the blue cave and the experience was awesome. while returning back to split from Hvar , we were met with a storm and Toni's skill managed us to get back safely to split..

    Worth the trip, it is tiring though , as the speed boat ride isn't comfortable and wouldnt recommend if you have back problems.

    We wnjoyed visiting Blue Cave, Green Cave, Hvar island.. since it was half season , we werent sure if the boat trips will be organized, but we were lucky to find Mayer charter..

    One suggestion - May be give a floating aid for every passenger and also a quick safety briefing before we start the boat..

    Due to the weather, the route was changed and we were no longer able to go to the Blue Caves or the Islands. I know that is out of their control but it isn't the main reason why I give 3 stars. We stopped in Trogir, the Blue Lagoon, and another small town before heading back. The tour ended up being 5 hours less so they told us we would get 50 euros back. It's been 1 week and I am still waiting on the reimbursement. They do give the option to get a full refund if you decide not to go in the morning. In hindsight, I would have taken the refund and instead would have preferred to take a ferry to Hvar for the day. I have been on many day tours and would say that the two guides we had were some of the worst I've had. They barely spoke and did not provide very much information or knowledge about the area.

    Had the best day and would highly recommend to do this tour, your out the whole day and get to explore 5 different islands, our tour guide Karlo was fantastic. Always making sure we were ok
    Gave great tips for each stop and great info on the history of each island. The blue cave is amazing such natural beauty. Blue lagoon was also brilliant can go snorkeling all equipment provided. The beach is stones so would def bring swimming shoes.
    The speed boat is exactly that and I was petrified. Its an hour out to the first island and can be very bumpy but Karlo was just a brilliant skipper so there was nothing to be scared of. I can't fault any of it. Fab day.
    Thanks again

    Could not recommend this highly enough, great experience and the staff couldn’t have done a better job. Only slight qualm/warning when the boat dropped off at Hvar they suggested a restaurant for lunch which was apparently according to the guide ‘not tourist prices’ and ‘cheaper’, this simply wasn’t true and the food did not match the high prices (They clearly knew the owner). Other than that I enjoyed the day :).

    Thanks for review. Just to clarify this. Hvar town restaurants are not cheap and we recommend best value for money. We know all owners because we work for 15 years on this tour. Customers can go in nay restaurant and no need choose our recommendation. Regards

    The guides (Ante and Valentina) were great, Ante was the skipper and he was very skilled at driving the boat to avoid major wave impact. This was important because the boat seats were very uncomfortable- you had to sit with your legs spread around the passenger's seat in front of you. I have a sore back and bottom after riding all day. The blue cave was unique, a bit pricey for what it is, but beautiful. Komiza was an interesting stop and guides gave recommendations on where to eat and what to do. Stiniva Cove was overcrowded so we didn't stay (guides gave us the choice). Budikovac island was more of a tourist trap - expensive drinks at a bar, or lay on a rocky beach. Hvar was great, good food recommendations, cute old town. At the end of the day, Ante slowed the boat so we could see a bunch of dolphins swimming - it was so cool! This tour may not be for everyone, but we had a good time despite some downsides.

    Thanks for Your review. Just to clarify something. Only this kind of seats are good for this trip. You need to have seats with handle in case of bigger waves on open sea. This tour is not panorama tour where we drive 5kt. On this tour we need to cover 105/10Nm so boats are made just for that. I also agree that tour is not for everyone but that is why we wrote not recommended for people with back problems and pregnant woman. Thanks

    Had an incredible time out on the water with our skipper Tony and our guide Philippa. They made the day super enjoyable by being friendly and funny tour guides and playing great music on the boat. We couldn’t visit the Blue Cave due to choppy seas, but they made up for it by bringing us to other super impressive cave-like features on the southern edge of the island. The Blue Lagoon was great for swimming to cool off on a hot day, and the towns we visited each had their own charm and appeal. Highly recommend this tour if you’re looking to get out of busy Split for the day and see some different sights. Only warning is that the boat rides are fast-paced and bumpy, so if that’s not your thing maybe take a ferry. Otherwise, you’ll love this tour! Thanks again to Tony and Philippa for a great day in Croatia!
