        Amazing views in Split 😍 Attention to detail
        Very professional! Thank you very much Sparus Boat’s for a great trip! We had booked a family trip with Sparus Boats and it was organized exceptionally well. The most what I enjoyed was the attention to detail in providing extras such as snacks, drinks and swimming equipment. See you next time in Split!

        Best private boat tour! Relaxing! Highly recommend!
        We had the best half day tour with Ante. He created a very relaxing experience for us. He is so knowledgeable about the area and it is evident he loves being a skipper. The boat was extra clean and we felt very safe! We enjoyed the snacks and drinks as well. Thank you to Dario and Ante! We hope to bring our 4 daughters to your gorgeous country one day! Highly recommend!

        Best island tour with Mile!!!
        Mile was the best boat skipper on this island tour! He took us to Brac and one of his favorite local breakfast spots. We then did some swimming and snorkeling and on to Hvar where we ate lunch at the most fabulous place Moli Onte. Thank you for a day we will always remember!

        Amazing day at sea
        Amazing fun day! Martina and Ante took their time and showed us around so many cool spots. Jumped in the water a bunch and dropped off for lunch and picked up. Amazing day overall. Highly recommend.

        4 island family day trip with swimming, snorkelling, and lunch on hvar
        What an amazing way to spend the Day! The owner (Dario) was great. He contacted us in the days prior to our trip discuss the weather as it looked like it might rain. He was very nice in offering us the ability to change our minds last minute if the weather looked bad. On the day of the trip, the weather was great and our driver Ante picked us up. Ante was amazing. He was very knowledgeable about all our destinations we travelled too, arranged a lunch reservation for us on Hvar and allowed us to determine the days itinerary. I would recommend this trip to couples or family’s as we went with our 14 year old son. The snorkeling in the blue lagoon was great and it was probably one of our best days while we stayed in split. Highly recommend this business for your boat excursion out of split and to see the beautiful islands around the city! Ask for Ante as your captain! An amazing person! The boats were very nice with all the comforts you would need to spend a day on the ocean. We would do this again!

        Half day fishing
        Booked via Fishing Booker App. Communication throughout was excellent with Dario and also Josip. We were two friends who wanted a half day fishing off Split. We were met at Stobrec as this is where we were staying. The boat was very modern, clean and well equipped. Josip was our Skipper and he was very smart and professional. Onboard were snacks and a selection of cold drinks. Josip moved the boat around the waters to find the best fishing spots. Everything was as expected and overall we had a very good time.

        First class private boat day with family.
        Perfect Day with an awesome crew. Our first private boat day and Marin (Skipper) and Ante (First mate) we incredible hosts and tour guides. The boat was a 35 foot, brand new boat perfect for a family. We were greeted with wine, beer, bottled water and flavored pelligrinos. Swimming in private coves and touring the islands off split was amazing. We even made it to the back side of HVAR for a lunch in a Restaraunt in a private cove you would never know about unless on a private boat. Can’t say enough about Marin, Ante and the amazing day on the water.

        Great boat and crew. We went “off menu” on the day and it was lovely. Terrific recommendation on a lunch spot followed by great snorkeling and swimming. Highly recommend.

        So much fun with a group of friends! (Skipper Mile rocks!)
        We had such an awesome experience with this boat tour and would recommend it to anyone and everyone visiting Croatia, especially with a group of friends! The water was beautiful and we were able to customize our trip to what we wanted which was super awesome. Our Skipper was Mile and he was AWESOME! We actually ended up booking another day with him for longer because our first day was so fun. Our first day started off rainy and a little chilly, but Mile made the most out of it and his positive attitude made the day great. We were able to adventure to the ship wreck, a few islands for drinks/ lunch/ to explore, swim/snorkel, and even got to see a World War II bunker/ cave which was super cool and interesting. Mile was very kind, positive, informative, fun, and professional! Highly recommend :)

        Half day trip with 8 friends, exploring islands around split
        Amazing day out with great service. Our rep Josip was brilliant and had some great suggestions including a quiet small cove where we spent the end of the afternoon. Can’t recommend this enough for a wonderful trip to explore the islands around Split

        Fantastic Day With A Great Captain
        Great day out with friends exploring some beautiful spots as recommended by our captain Josip. He was more than happy to take us wherever we wanted to go, but also took us to some quieter areas away from the bulk of other tourists. Extremely professional throughout the day, but also very engaging and spoke with all of us about Croatia, boating and much much more. Would highly recommend Josip for his knowledge, expertise and friendliness. Also, we were very impressed with the cleanliness of the boat on arrival.

      Me and my friends (9 of us) did a private Island Hvar tour from Split with Sparus agency.

      It was an early morning when we reached the meeting point, safety & tour brief was done by our skipper Dario - a funny but very knowledgeable lad :) I got a feeling he knows that area like the back of his hand.

      So we headed to Hvar and Pakleni Islands, saw a family of dolphins on our way there, went for snorkelling (did I say sea is so clear there?), visited few hidden coves (thumbs up Dario), in the afternoon we had lunch and went to some lounge bar (I forgot the name) which is pretty cool and after that we visited one more island before going back to Split.

      We had a blast especially when you sit at the front part of the boat!

      Return back to the hotel, safe and sound :) The best day we had in Croatia!

      Fabulous day out
      We organised this half day tour as it our son in laws birthday , we didn’t want to spend 10 or 11 hours away so this was perfect . When I explained where we were staying , Slaven our skipper picked is up from Zenta Harbour. Slaven asked what we wanted and tailored our tour for us .
      There were towels , drinks & snacks on board & Slaven was a great guide . Fab English and nice person too . Even went back for a cap which had blown off .
      We went to a beautiful cove for a drink & swim then another cove where we all jumped in the crystal clear waters . Then after fresh water shower on to Hvar for an hour .
      We arrived back in Zenta having seen a beautiful sunset. All agreed it was the highlight of our holiday . 100% recommend them

      We spent a wonderful full day enjoying the views from the sea and some of the small towns and coves. Our crew was amazing. They were flexible with our plans and took great care of us. We really enjoyed walking around HVAR and the wonderful grilled fish lunch about 7 minutes ride from HVAR. I cannot think of a better way to celebrate 20 years of cancer survivorship than on a boat all day with my husband and this crew enjoying the views and sipping wine while listening to great music. Thank you for a memorable day.

      What an amazing way to experience the beauty of Croatia! Dario and his crew provided such a unique boat trip for us. They went above and beyond to make sure we had an incredible time. We saw so many beautiful private beaches and red rock formations on the island of Hvar. This is an absolute must when visiting Croatia. I highly recommend booking a tour with Sparus Boats!!

      I'm extremely glad I booked a trip with Sparus Boats for my family's trip in Croatia! Dario is from Split and is very knowledgeable about the waters and islands surrounding Croatia. He is very resourceful! I was also grateful for his quick communication. His staff were efficient and professional from start to finish. We had a great time on the boat. Everything was clean and comfortable. Our driver navigated the waters well and knew the best spots to take us. I especially enjoyed swimming around the red rocks on Hvar. A must see! So beautiful!! I would come back to Croatia just to go on another excursion with Sparus Boats. We had an amazing day!! Thank you Dario and Sparus Boats staff for making our vacation that much more wonderful!
