My favourite Blue Lagoon Tour from Split is also the highest-rated and most-reviewed one, which is the Blue Lagoon, Shipwreck & Šolta cruise with lunch & unlimited drinks from Split tour. With over 2700 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ reviews, it’s definitely passed the tests of time.
When booking a tour, I like to go with the “tried and tested” option and I’m sure you’re no different. Who wants to book a tour with no reviews, right?
With over 2700 positive reviews, this tour is more than got its seal of approval. If it’s good enough for nearly 3000 people, it’s definitely a good tour. And it was more than good enough for me. And the 1500 people who took it and reviewed it in the summer of 2023.
In fact, it’s the best tour. The reviews exclusively mention how incredible the team are on this tour- with lots of compliments about how welcoming and friendly the staff are. And I can personally vouch for this- they were very friendly, and they felt like part of the group rather than a group leader, which is a trait I always like from guides.
Visiting the Blue Lagoon is a moment to be cherished, and there’s no better way to do so than by taking this tour. One thing I also really liked about the tour was the food- the food is great. Which for a tour offering free food, is pretty rare. This is a gold mine of a tour.
On top of exploring the Blue Lagoon, you also get to visit the infamous Croatian shipwreck which in my opinion, is one of the best spots for snorkelling in the whole world. I’ve snorkelled in lots of countries, across multiple continents, and it’s one of my favourite snorkels ever. It’s so unique. And you get to visit Šolta too which is another stunning spot.
The tour lasts for 8 hours allowing for plenty of time to admire each stop. You don’t want to rush a tour like this, you want to appreciate the natural beauty which the Blue Lagoon and co. have to offer. But don’t worry, it doesn’t feel like a long day. As the saying goes, “Time flies when you’re having fun”.
If nothing else about this tour stands out to you, the unlimited drinks have to be a selling point. I don’t drink personally, but there were lots of people taking advantage of this offer!
Imagine yourself soaking in the warm Croatian sun, sailing past picturesque islands through crystal clear water, with an ice-cold drink in your hand. What more can you ask for?
Looking for the best possible Blue Lagoon tour from Split? Blue Lagoon, Shipwreck & Šolta cruise with lunch & unlimited drinks from Split is the tour for you.

Another highly-rated tour which I recommend is the Blue Lagoon & 3 Islands Half-day Trip from Split which has over 1600 5-star ratings. It’s impressive how there are so many positive reviews for these Blue Lagoon Split Tours- this tour is really popular at the moment, it gained over 700 reviews in Summer 2023.
If you don’t want to spend a full day on a boat, this could be the tour for you. Spending only 5 and a half hours (compared to 8 on the previous tour) at sea, you get to visit the Blue Lagoon and other gems in the area. My girlfriend gets seasick so this was a tour that she much preferred to the first one.
But as the review says, time isn’t tight, there is plenty of time to enjoy the views and experience all of the beauty.
When taking a tour, no matter what tour or where in the world, the last thing I want is to feel rushed. It’s the most frustrating thing ever when you’re enjoying somewhere and the guide says it’s time to go. So it’s great that there is a slightly shorter tour but still allocates enough time for stops.
This tour doesn’t include food, but it does have a stop at a beach bar where you can buy your own food and drinks. The beach bars in Croatia are second to none, and you really feel like you are in paradise. Eating food on a golden sand beach with gorgeous blue water in the sun is hard to beat.
If you are interested in visiting Trogir, a town which is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site then you’ll want to book this tour as it includes a stop there. Trogir is a town straight out of a fairy tale, it’s so pretty. It’s definitely one of my favourite Croatian islands I’ve explored.
Want to visit the Blue Lagoon without spending a full day at sea? Blue Lagoon & 3 Islands Half-day Trip from Split is the tour for you. Get it booked before it sells out, it’s a very popular tour.

Another incredible Blue Lagoon Tour from Split is the Split Half Day Tour to Blue Lagoon, Shipwreck & Trogir Island tour which is a more personal tour as there is a max group size of 15.
By having a smaller tour group, it allows you to get a more personal experience. You can ask the tour guides as many questions as you please, and get to know the captain and crew. I really like it when guides are willing to have fun and enjoy the tour themself, rather than being grumpy because they are working.
This tour also includes free snorkelling equipment completely free of charge, whereas most other tours require a rental fee and/or a deposit. Of course, if it’s a deposit, you get it back after you return the equipment. But you won’t need to worry about it on this tour as it’s free.
If you really enjoy snorkelling and swimming this is the perfect tour for you. Not only does it provide free equipment, but the tour has a priority on giving you as much time as possible in the water and exploring the Blue Lagoon and the other stops. As I said earlier, I love snorkelling and this tour takes you to my favourite spot, the Blue Lagoon.
You don’t want to spend a tour like this mostly on the boat, so it was good to see a focus is on swimming. I took swimming lessons as a kid so you can never get me out of the water!
With stops at the Blue Lagoon, of course, along with the cove of Duga and Labaduza beach, you get to see some of the most naturally beautiful sights in Croatia. Croatia’s natural beauty is truly second to none. There’s also a stop at Trogir, which as said before, is extremely charming.
For a more personal tour which focuses on giving you as much time as possible in the water, book Split Half Day Tour to Blue Lagoon, Shipwreck & Trogir Island before it sells out.

For a thrilling experience, take the Split: Blue Lagoon and 3 Islands Speedboat Tour which follows the route of most tours, but on a speedboat!
This is one of the fastest-growing Blue Lagoon tours from Split, it gained 1000 additional reviews from when I last edited this post (I’m editing this in November 2023 and my last edit was just before the summer!).
Taking the tour on the speedboat adds an extra element, an extra bit of excitement. Personally, I think speedboats are fun. And I also think Split boat tours are fun. Combine the two and you have the tour of a lifetime.
As the review says above, it’s the best thing you will do in Croatia.
Just picture yourself speeding along the Adriatic Sea, with panoramic views worthy of a postcard. In this part of the world, every direction you look is unbelievable. It’s hard to find words to describe the beauty of the Blue Lagoon and the area surrounding it- and I’m a travel blogger so if anyone is going to have words, it should be me!
The tour stops for between 40 minutes and an hour at each location, leaving you plenty of time to explore the underwater world with your snorkel and mask. As I said, I hate tours which are rushed so I was really glad this one isn’t.
If you’re seeking a bit of thrill while seeing the Blue Lagoon, get the Split: Blue Lagoon and 3 Islands Speedboat Tour booked ASAP and enjoy the adventure.

Yet another tried and tested option, with over 600 reviews is the Three Island Tour from Split (Shipwreck, Blue Lagoon, Maslinica) LUNCH INCLUDED which also has the Viator Badge of Excellence.
The Badge of Excellence is awarded to tours which are “highly rated by travellers and have met our top quality standards.” In other words, you know you are in for a good tour when booking it and I can attest to that! Any tour I’ve taken with a badge of excellence has been great, this one included.
This tour offers a full-day experience, coming in at around 8 and a half hours. It’s a long day, but it’s more than worth it.
You get to experience the Blue Lagoon which is presumably on your bucket list if you found this post. So the tour is already in for a winner.
But you also get to visit a lot more sites than most tours. You get to visit the Nečujam Bay which is only 3 metres underwater, making it the perfect snorkelling destination. Most tours in this article also visit the shipwreck.
What makes this tour unique is the number of other stops. You also stop at Solta Island, Maslinica, Ciovo Island, and a number of other uninhabited islands.
For a more in-depth tour of the area and more time at the stops, make sure to Book the Three Island Tour from Split (Shipwreck, Blue Lagoon, Maslinica) LUNCH INCLUDED.

For a tour that is a lot simpler and gives you the maximum time in the Blue Lagoon, check out the Blue Lagoon and Trogir Half-Day Speedboat Tour from Split.
The tour is a little shorter than most, at only 4 and a half hours. But there are only two stops. 1. Blue Lagoon. 2. Trogir.
This means you have a load of time to spend at each location. You get about 90 minutes at the Blue Lagoon and the same in Trogir.
Getting to spend so long in the Blue Lagoon is rare and it’s an opportunity not to be slept on.
90 minutes allows you to completely fall in love with the lagoon, and trust me, you will. If you are in love with the pictures, you will be head over heels in real life.
Having so long to explore Trogir is also pretty cool. As mentioned before, it’s really charming and the Old Town, in particular, is more than worth a visit.
So if you want a tour that really focuses heavily on the Blue Lagoon, the Blue Lagoon and Trogir Half-Day Speedboat Tour from Split is the tour for you.
By the way, if you are interested in taking a Blue Lagoon tour, you might also be interested in taking a Blue Cave tour from Hvar. It’s the small island off Split and the tour to the cave is incredible.

The Blue Lagoon is one of the most photographable spots in Croatia, up there with Krka National Park or the streets of Dubrovnik. So you’ll want a tour that allows for great photos. From Split: Trogir and Blue Lagoon Half-Day Tour pay particular attention to this.
They list a camera as an essential item to bring, so they know how well the tour comes out in photographs. Taking a Blue Lagoon Tour from Split will leave your Instagram followers completely jealous, as the crystal clear waters and stunning islands are a sight to be sought.
What’s unique about this tour too is they acknowledge the potential to see dolphins in the wild. There are lots of places to see dolphins in Croatia, but imagine seeing them on a tour of the Blue Lagoon. It would be a completely unforgettable day.
You also want a driver who is sociable and gets along with the group and this tour offers exactly that. As the review says, they had a fantastic personality and helped make the tour a highlight of their trip.
And that’s what seeing the Blue Lagoon should be. A highlight of your trip.
This tour also allows you to choose between visiting Maslinica, a small fishing village, or having some cocktails and lunch at the Laganini Beach Club, which is one of Croatia’s most famous.
If you want an amazing Blue Lagoon tour with lots of opportunities to take photos, book the From Split: Trogir and Blue Lagoon Half-Day Tour.

The 30-minute speedboat ride from Split to the Blue Lagoon is a thrilling one, and there’s no better way to do it than on the spacious and comfortable speedboat of the Split: Half-Day Blue Lagoon, Shipwreck, and Trogir Boat Tour.
The Blue Lagoon is the highlight of any of these tours, of course, it’s as close to perfect as a lagoon can get. But this tour also visits the shipwreck, like most tours, and Trogir, like most tours, but it also visits the quaint little town of Solta-Maslinica.
It’s your typical Croatian town with white houses with orange rooftops, but it’s nowhere near as popular to visit as other similar towns, which gives Solta-Maslinica a unique sense of authenticity and exclusivity.
The tour is also “only” 5 hours so if you want to see the Blue Lagoon and other famous sights without having your whole day taken up, this is the tour for you. You can be done by the early afternoon.
But even if you don’t want to spend the whole day, be sure to bring your swimming gear as the opportunity to snorkel in the Blue Lagoon with the golden sand and crushed shells underfoot is an opportunity not to be missed.
So be sure to book Split: Half-Day Blue Lagoon, Shipwreck, and Trogir Boat Tour before it sells out as it’s one of GetYourGuide’s most popular tours from Split.

For the tour of a lifetime, take the Split: Blue Lagoon, Shipwreck, & Šolta with Lunch & Drinks which includes stops at, well as the name suggests, the Blue Lagoon, Shipwreck and Šolta.
But what makes this tour unique is that it goes in a “back to front” order compared to all of the other tours on this list. It stops at the Shipwreck first, then Šolta, before ending at the Blue Lagoon. Of course, before heading back to Split.
Another unique selling point for this tour is the stand-up paddle boards you can borrow from the boat. It’s a really cool offer and it would only add to your Blue Lagoon experience. There are inflatables on offer too if you prefer that sort of thing.
You can also book sunbeds on the boat which again makes the experience all the more worthwhile. Imagine cruising through the beautiful islands off the coast of Croatia while lying back and taking in the sun. Wow!
The description of the tour says you can “soak in the Summer vibes” and that is exactly how I would describe a Blue Lagoon tour from Split. The vibes are immaculate, not just because of the boat, but because of the whole scenario.
The waves crash off the boat as you sail from island to island, admiring the breathtaking views in all directions with the smell of the sea and the wind on your face. It’s a sensory stimulation that just screams happiness.
If that sounds like something you’d enjoy, make sure to check out the Split: Blue Lagoon, Shipwreck, & Šolta with Lunch & Drinks and get it booked while you can.

For the most unique Blue Lagoon Tour Split offers, check out the Split: Blue Lagoon Pirate Boat Cruise with Lunch and Drinks, where, as the name suggests, you sail on a pirate ship!
If you are travelling with children, this is the perfect tour for you. You get to experience the Blue Lagoon, the shipwreck and Šolta which unfortunately most kids won’t appreciate.
And the kids get to enjoy themselves being on a real-life pirate ship. I’m sure some adults would enjoy this too though, right?! Growing up, I loved pirates, so this would have been amazing for me!
But seeing the Blue Lagoon now is a bit better than Pirates, sorry to any Pirates fans out there. But as I said, if you’re travelling as a family- this is the tour for you.
It’s a slower-paced, more chilled-out and relaxing tour, lasting 9 hours and the use of the word “cruise” sums it up entirely. It’s not a tour, it’s a cruise.
And it would be hard to find a better cruise- and I took a sunset cruise in Dubrovnik which was phenomenal. As you sail through the Adriatic Sea picturing yourself as a pirate, you can enjoy the complimentary lunch and free glass of wine.
Which, if you are a parent, I’m sure would be welcomed greatly.
There’s also the opportunity to buy cocktails, beers, snacks and who could forget ice cream? Famously a pirate’s favourite thing to eat, right? Nonetheless, this pirate ship sells it.
If you have kids or are simply looking for a pirate adventure, book the Split: Blue Lagoon Pirate Boat Cruise with Lunch and Drinks today!
