      Best boat trip!
      Beautiful trip! The crew were amazing, and I hadn’t expected breakfast of burek and dessert too later in the day! Music on the boat was good, but not like a party boat. The atmosphere was just great, not too busy, and everyone was really friendly and encouraging to get into the cold water! The swim stops were gorgeous and had to ourselves, and the stop in Hvar was good time-wise too. Lunch was a chicken salad which I wasn’t expecting much of but it was a great portion size and really tasty too! Everyone ended up dancing at the end of the trip in the main bit of the boat and it was great fun! Maria was an amazing host :)

      Winnetous Heritage
      Overall it was good and i liked it. Staff and transport is all very nice and everyone is really engaged to provide a good and safe time. Biggest down point was the Krk National Park. Its way too crowded, very limited ways to enjoy the actual park at your own pace. its mass production and you get pushed through like a herd of cattle. if you wanna do something good to the park, donate and skip the visit. Cat cruise is stunning and fun.

      Nice experience
      We chose the combination tour, because a whole day on the water seemed a bit much. In the morning we had a very nice visit to the Krka Waterfalls and we were pleasantly surprised by our guide Tanja who gave us lot’s of historical information on the bus ride up. The waterfalls were nice and being there in the morning with the heat was good. We changed to the catamaran around 13:30 and we were lucky, because our group was not that big. The afternoon on the water was also very pleasant, but bare in mind that it is an all inclusive tour, so you can imagine that there are quite some people who choose this trip for the drinking opportunity. In our group this was the case also, however, it all stayed quite ok and it wasn’t annoying for us as non-drinkers. We were the oldest on the tour (49/50), but since we don’t mind loud music and a bit of fun it was all good. The staff was very friendly and enthusiastic. The swim stops were refreshing. Lunch was a very fresh Caesar salad (tip: a bit of bread would be nice) and in the afternoon there was watermelon and cake. All in all it was a very nice experience, however it would have been great if there would have been an “over 35 and/or family tour” or at least a mix of older and younger people.

      Not a good one
      We had booked a full day but got cancelled because of the weather so we rebooked for the next day. So happy we ended up booking half a day instead of full day. They advertise that they have limited numbers because of Covid but this time it was more than packed! Glad we went with the first and managed to find a seat! The meals they offer is just watermelon and a salad. The salad was terrible and when I asked for an extra slice of watermelon they told me that they didn't have more - I had asked for vegetarian meal.. We were also disappointed with the locations they chose to make a stop. You could see that the clear/crystal/turquoise water was just a bit further but the boat didn't go any closer. Such a shame. The staff was nice and the music up to a point. At the end they only put French songs for the French people that were on board.

      Fantastic 1/2 day out.
      Well, I couldn't help but be skeptical. First holiday in 2 years and many boat options and touts fighting for business. 2 things sealed the deal for me. 1, the boat was very pretty. 2, They were not completely full. I have done boat tours on crowded boats and they are quite horrible. Upon arrival, the staff were very welcoming, formal and very good. Thankfully we were less than 30 people, so everyone had a seat at a table. I was told they reduced for Covid to a mx of 60. Before that could be 80! My idea of hell. Anyway, timed perfectly the ride was smooth, we were given introductions, guidelines and very clear instructions. The food and drinks were absolutely fine. Good itinerary, perfectly timed. I'd go again without hesitation, proving they are not too busy. It was a fantastic half day out.

    The whole trip was very well organized. We didn’t feel that there are too many people at all. Crew was doing their best during the whole journey, providing meals, caring for safety and customers satisfaction. Itinerary details and safety instructions were clearly communicated and repeated if needed. Drinks and meals were of decent quality and refills for drinks were provided expeditiously. Additionally, crew kindly asked guests to try to reuse plastic glasses, which is very sensible environment-wise. It’s one of the nicest experiences we’ve had and we are very thankful to Summer Blues and our amazing crew for this journey!

    We booked this trip before we travelled to Split based on the itinerary and reviews. It definitely did not disappoint. The boat is really comfortable and the crew were excellent. The host shared a lot of information and made sure everyone was ok throughout the day. She never stopped all day. The captain picked great swimming spots and the 2 hour stop in Hvar were just enough. After lunch things really livened up with great music and drinks flowing. We haven’t danced that much in ages but it was absolutely brilliant. We met some fabulous people onboard and had a thoroughly great day. The food provided was all good as well, I would highly recommend if you want a long fun day and I know we’ll be talking about it for some time.

    The team on board is the best . The animator girl is just amazing full of energy and caring . She managed to take the 77 people on the dance floor for the last 45 minutes of the cruise .
    As far as the captain he is super great and has the best play list . Quite cute too :)
    I highly recommend this 10 hours cruise that take you to selective islands with great music all along great spot to swim in cristalline water . Very dedicated staff. Worth the price ! Thanks again to the team on board . Catherine Violet

    This one was so much fun the first time, that we decided to do it again when we had a free day at the end of our trip and were looking to get out on the water again.  Did we want to see a couple areas that we didn’t get to on this tour?  Yes.  Did we want to be stuffed onto a rib boat or small speed boat to do it?  No.  On this boat, you can move around and mingle and just hang out.  Now, we absolutely did this late in the season when there were only about 40 or so people on the boat so it wasn’t too bad.  I’m not sure we would have enjoyed it as much during high season when there are closer to 80 people.  The morning starts off slow with come coffee or juice and a pastry while you make your way out.  As the day goes, the pace picks up when everyone gets significantly more lubricated from the unlimited adult beverages and the way to the last stop and back to port are practically an all-out dance party at a club.  The places you visit are beautiful.  The swimming stops are great and even into mid-October (though it’s been warmer than normal) was absolutely fine for swimming.  Our host both times Kaja was incredible.  The rest of the crew, with Josep, Philip, Marin and Luka.  They absolutely take care of you from the moment you leave until after the trip is done.  We can’t say enough good things about them.

    Our family of 9 had so much fun. The tour guide Kaja did such a great job getting passengers to dance and laugh and have fun. She shared information about Croatia and the islands and it was one of our best experiences of our vacation in Croatia. The food and drink and swimming were great! I highly recommend this to anyone that wants to have a memorable vacation!

    I cannot recommend this trip enough and that’s coming from an “older” lady! We were by far the oldest couple but what a fantastic, fun filled trip. Maria, captain and crew were amazing and made us all feel included and brought all the guests together! We met some really lovely people. Lots of swimming opportunities, stops and plenty of time in Hvar with a guided tour included. Food and drink aplenty with non-stop dancing and laughs on our return journey. You can get as involved as you choose!

    This was not our first catamaran cruise and it was quite average. The staff were very kind and did try to make us feel comfortable and went out of there way as we had our 7 year old with us. I would not recommend this cruise for people with children under 12 to 15. They started serving alcohol at 10 so by the time lunch rolled around many of the young guys on the boat were very drunk. The food served was not good at all and was by far the worst we had during our time in Croatia. If you are looking just to be on the water with a few stops to get in the water and are wanting unlimited alcohol then this may be the right place for you but for families I would not recommend!

    Dear Crystal, Thank you for sharing your feedback about your recent catamaran tour experience. We appreciate your honest review and are pleased to hear that our staff was kind and made efforts to ensure your comfort, especially as you had your 7-year-old with you. Creating a welcoming environment for families is important to us, and we value your recognition of our team's dedication. While we understand that your overall experience was average, we are sorry that it did not fully meet your expectations. We strive to create a balanced atmosphere for all our guests, including families, and we are sorry if this aspect fell short during your tour. While we cannot control the motivations of individual guests, we strive to provide a well-rounded experience that caters to a variety of preferences. We want to assure you that we accommodate a large number of people with diverse expectations, and it can sometimes be challenging to predict everyone's preferences. While we aim to cater to different needs and preferences, it is difficult to know in advance what specific expectations individuals may have. We make efforts to ensure responsible alcohol consumption and maintain a pleasant atmosphere for all guests. Your feedback will be used to review and refine our policies to address these concerns more effectively in the future. Regarding the food served during the tour, we do our best in providing meals that are suitable for a boat tour setting. Thank you for choosing our catamaran cruise, and we hope that you will consider giving us another opportunity to provide you with an improved experience in the future. Warm regards, Jelena Summer Blues team

    It was a nice catamaran trip, we got to see quite a lot. The food and drinks at the boat were actually quite nice. There were quite a lot of people on the boat although it was the social distancing time, but there was still some room to practice the 1.5m rule. The experience of course depends on what people are on the boat, we had some loud french and italians, but they are everywhere anyways.
    Overall it was a nice trip with great views, would recommend it. If you choose to do it bare in mind to bring a lot of sunscreen.

    2nd time trip on Summer Blues.

    It is a good trip but not suitable for families with kids or couples that want some quiet time.

    It is a party boat, however they advertise it as not being so. Any boat with groups of people and an unlimited bar that opens at 10:30 is pretty much a party boat. Everyone was sloshed, singing loudly to the equally loud music and the staff did limbos at the end.

    We went on this trip with our daughter in 2019 and it wasn’t a party boat, this rebooking. But is has evolved into one.

    Beautiful trip, nice spots, friendly staff but just know what you are booking and go into it with open eyes, which we did not.

    Would recommend for early 20’s looking for a good boat trip and to get drunk and go dancing on the sea.

    Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback regarding your recent experience with us. We understand that your previous experience with us in 2019 was different and we truly appreciate your loyalty. We're glad to hear that you found the trip beautiful, the spots enjoyable, and our staff friendly. It's important to us that our guests have a positive overall experience. We want to clarify that while we do have a dance hour during the return to Split, our intention is not to create a party boat environment but to cater to different tastes, without overwhelming the overall experience. While we strive to provide an enjoyable experience for a wide range of guests, we understand that individual preferences can vary especially regarding the unlimited drinks/open bar. Our intention is to strike a balance between creating a lively and fun atmosphere while also providing a comfortable and enjoyable environment for families and couples who seek a more serene experience. It's important for us to highlight that our tour, despite the same itinerary, is different everyday and is shaped by diverse expectations from diverse participants. We are happy that the majority of the feedbacks/reviews, particularly those from families and couples, are more than positive. We hope you'll consider giving us another opportunity in the future, as we're committed to continuously improving and adjusting our offerings based on the valuable input we receive from our guests.
