This was one of the best excursions my family has ever done! At first we traveled from Omis to a remote cove on the island of Brac for some swimming. While swimming Mario and Roko made lunch. The lunch was amazing! With lunch they provided homemade wine and beer which was very good. The beer and wine was available throughout the trip. We then ventured to a sleepy town, Picisca, to explore and shop. After walking the town we returned to the boat where we traveled to a point where we could sail back into Omis. This was a fun trip that my family would do again. I recommend this excursion to all!

I couldn’t say enough good things about this company. I was looking everywhere to find a one-day charted. The owner reached out to me on TripAdvisor and made it happen!

The weather while we were in Croatia was pretty crappy: windy and rainy all 6 days. The crew asked if we could do our trip a day earlier than planned since they thought it’d be better weather. Sadly, it was still pretty rainy.

The crew met us in the parking lot, walked us to the yacht, helped us get loaded, and off we went.

The skipper adjusted the itinerary to make it a better trip with the rain. We spent some time in Hvar before being taken to Zori for a lunch. After that we just cruised around the islands, swam a bit in the chilly waters, and relaxed.

Given the crappy weather, we had a fantastic time.

We had a fantastic boat trip with Antonio, visiting some quiet beaches for swimming and a lovely restaurant at the island Brac.

The boat was fIt for purpose and Antonio himself was trustwurthy and very service-minded, selecting perfect spots for our family trip. Booking a trip with him is accordingly highly recommended!

Filip or driver (owner) is excellent. Right on time at 6:15 am to Le Meridian and was able to talk to get security and get our luggage on board the ferry before so opened so we could go have a coffee. He goes the extra mile.

Ivana helped organise my large group of 16 on a boat trip and was incredibly helpful with all of our requests, and gave us a great selection of boats to suit our requirements (from all different budgets). We had several emails back and forth and she was always quick with responding, and a great value trip! The boat trip was a real highlight of our trip. Highly recommend using Polaris!!

We used Polaris Yachting/Ivana's service for a recent 1 week Yacht Cruise that we went on in Croatia. I had contacted many agencies and was very frustrated with either not receiving any answers, and those that answered weren't really attentive to my questions, that was until I talked with Ivana. Ivana was very knowledgable, experienced and answered my emails quickly and was able to address all my questions and concerns. She worked very hard to find the exact cruise that tailored to exactly what we were looking for and was a pleasure to work with.
Then came time for our cruise. The yacht "YOLO" was spectacular - totally exceeded expectations. We felt like we were Royalty. Our bedroom was spacious with loads of storage and counter space, with really comfie beds and the best shower we had on our whole trip. The meals were gourmet and excellent - we ate really well and weren't hungry for many days after our cruise ended. The entire boat was luxury! Plus our Captain, cruise director and crew did everything they could to provide for us, make us comfortable and ensure that our cruise was unforgettable.
Thank you Ivana for all your insight, experience and assistance in finding and organizing this amazing cruise.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Polaris Yachting for those of you with future travels to Croatia.

Surrey, B.C., Canada   

Excellent trip for 22, organised through Ivana. We had an idea of an itinerary and the team provided exactly what we wanted. Communication was fantastic, the crew were great and accommodating; making us all feel welcome. Would recommend this company if you are looking for a flexible and enjoyable boat trip!

I highly recommend Ivana and her team who we used for many airport transfers in the summer. Ivana was very efficient in her communication with us, the pick ups were always on time and the vehicle was perfect for our needs. I highly recommend this company.

Hong Kong, China   

We had the most wonderful vacation, planned for us by Ivana Tomic at Polaris. She found us an amazing 7 day cruise on a gorgeous small cruise ship. I had many questions and Ivana was extremely responsive and helpful. If you are looking for a relaxing way to visit many islands along the Dalmatian coast, do yourself a favor and book a cruise on the Invictus ship

Polaris Yachting arrange our transfers from the airport to Omis, as we are a large family they had a super smart van and the driver was immaculately dressed. He was so nice and took us back to the airport when we realised we had forgotten our push chair and didn't try to charge us extra for this (we did pay, of course). Punctual and friendly - definitely recommended.

Filip drove us from Dubrovnic to Split with a stop at Cetina Canyon for rafting and lunch. He was delightful. He was polite and friendly and a joy to be with. He even showed us a couple of beautiful places along the way - a sweet little village and an incredible view from a hilltop. At one point, he pulled into a roadside stand and purchased a bag of fruit for us. Always a gentleman and eager to show us the beauty of his country. And a few days after our trip, he emailed us photos he had taken of our family. We were very impressed! And hope to catch a ride with Filip in the future.

San Francisco, USA   

We had a wonderful time at our private full day boat trip, thank you Antonio for a great experience! We had our 11-month old baby with us and Antonio was very accommodating and adjusted the schedule to her needs no problem. He took us to beautiful beaches with almost no people. Highly recommended!

We had an incredible day on the boat with Captain Ivan and Stanko. We went to the blue lagoon and they also took us to quieter beautiful areas to snorkel and paddle board. They were awesome and we loved the day! We highly recommend them for a memorable special day trip from Split.
We also found it easy to book with Ivana!

I have no hesitation in recommending Filip and his fine services.
A truly five-star experience.

London, England   

If you are looking for an amazing, and seamless water experience/tour do not hesitate to reach out to Polaris. Communication was flawless and quick in terms of planning our experience and the tour/day itself was nothing short of exceptional. The crew was professional, knowledgeable, gracious and FUN, and the boat itself was luxurious and comfortable. They took us to so many exquisitely beautiful spots (we did the South Side of Hvar tour), and shared so much wonderful and appreciated information about so many things. We felt like we were in the capable hands of friends who wanted nothing more than to ensure the experience lived up to our expectations which it did without question! I cannot speak highly enough of Polaris - from start to finish it was an absolute pleasure to work with them. You won’t be disappointed!

We have just experienced a really great trip organised by Polaris and Ivana. Every email or text message answered almost immediately and plenty of alternative boats to select from - including the boat we chose which was a Partner’s fantastic boat because of the size of our party. Antonio helped us organize everything and the day with Alberto was just perfect from help with our late lunch reservation to finding us great places to swim. Thank you Ivana and team!

Johannesburg   

Absolutely amazing! We did the Delux blue cave boat trip and it was by far the most fun we had in split! The staff and crew are Very friendly and entertaining, They went out of their way to make us happy. The Blue cave and islands visited were breathtaking, the crew also provided us with interesting facts about the places we visited. The food and drinks provided were also great and plentiful. Was well worth the price for a full day io fun and site seeing.

South Africa   

Polaris company contacted me after my post on Facebook - telling about their boat tours. We wanted a nice boat for just the 5 of our family! And to see the islands and swimming. Ivana was so helpful making a couple of wonderful suggestions and the perfect boat. Deposit paid we arrived in Split and was taken to our ride for the day - and met Ivan and Louvre- they were wonderful! Great company and took us to the best ever places - Hvar, a swim stop, aranchini for an amazing lunch, more swimming and coffee and ice cream at milna- please excuse my spelling xx one last swim stop and back to split. It was a little windy at sea, which made it more fun for us and we felt very safe - much better than some of the craft out on the water! It was a very comfy boat - lovely seating for everyone and shade when needed! The trip was worth every penny and I would highly recommend contacting Polaris for all your needs! Would certainly use them again!

Stafford, United Kingdom   

Ivana was lovely. We scheduled a boat excursion with her for 25 of our family members. She was prompt in replying, the price was great. She also went out of our way to meet us to pay a deposit, as we couldn’t complete a money transfer. The boat trip was really amazing, the staff was so funny and hospitable and the fish lunch included was phenomenal. Was the second-best day of our trip to Croatia(only second to our wedding!) Definitely recommend booking through Polaris!

Ottawa, Canada   

Had a fantastic experience aboard Catamaran Marla, arranged by Ivana. She is a top notch professional and wonderful to work with. My husband and I enjoyed a private 6 day catamaran sail from Split to Dubrovnik that far exceeded our expectations. Ivana made the process very simple and found us exactly what we were looking for. Highly recommend Ivana and Catamaran Marla!!

We booked a transfer from Marina Kaštela near Split to Dubrovnik and the whole experience was very pleasant, professional and relaxing. Filip was not just our perfect driver, but he also told us a lot about the local attractions, food and other interesting facts along the way. Great service! I highly recommend Polaris Yachting.

We booked Polaris for our friends who were visiting from Australia. From our initial email with Ivana to our private transfer being confirmed the service provided was very efficient. Ivana's driver collected our friends on time from our apartment in Grebastica and delivered them to Split. The driver was very smart, the mini-bus was a new Mercedes and super clean and, he also knew so much about the area and gave them a commentary of where they were on route. He also stopped at a fantastic location near Primosten and took photographs for them. A fantastic family business/service which we are very pleased to recommend to our friends and guests.

Grebastica, Croatia   

I used Polaris for an early airport transfer.The vehicle was on time and very comfortable .I changed pickup times twice , but it was no problem for Ivana who always responded promptly .The company ofer a reliable service that I would use again.

London, UK   

We used the Executive (airport) Transfer services of Filip as part of our summer holiday in July. We were so delighted with the initial service (& the very competitive pricing) that we used Filip’s for the rest of our holiday transfers. Old world charm and courtesy of the highest standard, delivered in a very modern and smart way on all levels. Thank you Filip - and see you next Summer.

London, UK   

Ivana is very responsive and helpful. She, through her company Polaris Yachting, arranged for accommodations and transportation from the airport. All was done with professional courtesy and expediency. Polaris offers many services which I'm will be carried out with the same professionalism.

Wayne, Pennsylvania   

Ivana is very responsive and helpful throughout the booking process and when providing our tour directions (where, when, etc.). We did a private Blue lagoon, trogir, and beach stop in a speed boat for 1/2 day for 8 people. It was so fun!!

Columbus, OH   

We had the absolute best day of our trip with Polaris Yachting - cannot recommend enough!! Tino was our skipper who was just great, we had super intense winds on the way home but felt so safe and comfortable with him. We loved the flexibility of choosing where we wanted to go - Tino took us to the most beautiful, isolated & private beaches. Not to mention the incredible lunch. The boat was also so spacious & well-kept. Overall it was one of the best days yet, we can’t wait to recommend this to our friends & family who come to Croatia in the future ♥️

Sydney, Australia   

Most professional service I've ever had! Ivana at Polaris Yachting was beyond helpful, always responded quickly and answered every question. Although I am Croatian I have never taken a cruise along the Adriatic coast before. I wanted to show this beautiful country to my Mexican husband and teenage daughter, and they were absolutely amazed. Everything from the booking process to boarding the ship and checking out went smooth and easy. We took the 7 day Dubrovnik to Split tour with the MS Summer. Do not hesitate, go! You will not regret it. HVALA, Ivana!

Naples, FL   

Ivana Tomic Kalina from Polaris
That’s who I found while researching for what’s to do in Croatia. One of the best and well planned trip we had, she even help me make lunch reservation when I couldn’t contact the restaurant in Croatia the US. She is very responsive, patience and caring, always checking up on the process.
Im already sending friends to her to be plan their own trip. I booked a 7 nights cruise from Dubrovnik- Split, but I think she can also book private yacht, day trip boat and car transfer too.

Wahington DC   

We are extremely happy with our trip to Split, Croatia this summer and all because of the Polaris Yachting!!! We reserve the boat for 1 day for a all day trip everything included, it was absolutely amazing! The crew was amazing all the island was absolutely breathtaking…. Since the day trip was so great we decided to reserve boat for another day again… Thank you Ivan and for the whole team that made this trip so special and we have beautiful memories to remember!!!! Everything was perfect 😍

Our driver was the best! He went above and beyond. We used this service to go from port to Split. Not only did he add special stops to get photographs with the family, but since we had add'l time to kill before our flight he dropped us off at key tourist spots to check out before making our departure home.

I would highly recommend this service!

Ivana with Polaris Yachting was absolutely priceless in planning my epic birthday trip to Croatia!! The planning started over a year prior and she was extremely helpful in guiding us toward exactly what we really wanted to do in order to see and do as much as possible in a 2 week trip. The small cruise suggestion with Zantium travel during the middle of our trip was the BEST bang for our buck to see so many beautiful places. She also never hesitated in answering all my questions even helping me to make sure the Airbnb’s we booked in both Dubrovnik and Split were in the perfect areas. Can’t imagine planning the trip without her. The Croatia trip was an absolute dream come true and I can’t wait to return and visit even more of the country and surrounding areas.

Naples, FL   

From first contact to last, Polaris did a fantastic job and we highly recommend their service. Ivana followed up on all of the email exchange etc that was necessary to book the trip. An email advising a change in boat was seamless and we were very pleased with how she handled the matter. The skipper did a fabulous job making sure that we were comfortable and saw all that we wanted to.

Auckland, New Zealand   

Polaris Yachting provided us with an exceptional experience! We embarked on the 4-day mini cruise in May, covering Split, Hvar, Vis, Bisevo, and Milna, and it was unforgettable. Traveling as a family of four with teenagers, we found the trip perfect for all of us. Ivana from Polaris was outstanding—she was incredibly responsive and thoroughly explained everything from the beginning. The booking and payment process was smooth with no hidden fees. Her knowledge and quick email responses, despite the time zone difference, were impressive.

The yacht, San Spirito, was superb—its cabins were modern, clean, and beautiful. The hardworking crew ensured our comfort throughout the journey. The captain was flexible, adjusting our schedule due to weather conditions to ensure we could visit the Blue Cave. The entire crew was friendly and approachable. The food was delicious, and they easily accommodated gourmet vegetarian meals for my daughter.

We loved staying overnight at various ports and experiencing the local culture in the evenings. This cruise was the best way to explore Croatia, and we highly recommend Polaris Yachting!

Keswick, Canada   

Ivana from Polaris was able to secure us a booking on 7 night Split-Dubrovnik cruise at the last moment, when other companies were booked out. She was super prompt and got us a cabin on MS Mama Marija. We absolutely loved our cruise, it was the highlight of our month in Europe.

Crows Nest, Australia   

Ivana was great to work with from the get-go, answering all my questions and providing various options. At first, none of them seemed to be what we were looking for, but luckily Ivana came back to us when a new boat became available to do a private 3 day/2 night trip with a pick up in Split and drop off in Hvar, which was exactly what we were looking for. Ivana provided some tips/suggestions of the route to ensure that we could see the various popular spots on my list. From the moment we got on the Grey Goose with Maggie, we knew we had made the right decision! We had an awesome time just relaxing on the boat and then making various stops to bays/coves where we could swim, snorkel, kayak, etc before getting back on the boat to our next stop and of course enjoying delicious lunch and refreshing beverages.

We couldn’t have asked for a better time on the boat to celebrate our honeymoon and are grateful for Maggie and our skipper Zoran for their hospitality and bringing us to some beautiful spots that we will not forget! Would definitely recommend booking through Polaris Yachting.

New York City, New York   

We had the most amazing day! Definitely the highlight of the entire trip! The boat simply insane, so beautiful and comfortable and our skipper was fantastic. Cannot recommend them enough. My entire group of friends is still raving about this day.

Chicago   

I arranged a airport transfer at Split airport with Filip and I must say it was first class service, from the start of booking to actual pick up. I
had good communication about my booking and pick up point and I must say it’s the best Taxi I’ve been in a new Mercedes 8 seater. Many thanks Ian
