Hvar, a Croatian island in the Adriatic Sea, is best known as a summer resort. Highlights of the port town Hvar include its 13th-century walls, a hilltop fortress and a main square anchored by the Renaissance-era Hvar Cathedral. The island also features beaches like Dubovica and inland lavender fields. Boat excursions serve the nearby Pakleni Islands, which have secluded beaches and coves.
Obviously when hiring a scooter or boat in a new place it can be a little daunting as unfortunately from experience there are many hire companies around that don't operate as they should, however Juri at Antonio rent was such a great guy and made the rental of a scooter and boat the next day so easy.
Juri gave us tips on where to travel around Hvar by scooter including a stop in various villages and sights. He also made sure we were happy with everything including safety on the bike and was also very trusting with us too being such a fair and laid back guy that he is.
The boat rental was just as good and Juri helped show how to operate the boat, anchor, dock, etc with ease and made sure we knew he was just a phone call away if we needed anything. It was my first time operating any sort of boat but it went so well thanks to all the information we had.
This made our trip to Hvar such an amazing experience, the scooter and boats were also in very good condition, which showed when we hired from another company on a different island with no speedometer and rattling everywhere!
All in all if you are looking to rent on Hvar then don't look any further than Juri at Antonio rent. Hopefully I'll have the chance to rent again from him in the future! 🙂
Red rocks & Pakleni islands private tour
For us the private tour It has been a very nice experience, we visited many beautiful beaches moreover our skipper recommended us the best places for swimming.
We made the tour with our little girl (2,5 years old) who enjoyed a lot in the boat!
I totally recommend to make the tour, I wish to go back soon!
Blue cave & Pakleni islands tour
My family and I booked the tour to see the Blue cave and Pakleni islands and after a perfectly spent day, we are so glad we did!
Not only did we take it with someone who is experienced and knows the area so well, but we also had a lot of fun and became friends. A lot of fun, positive energy and a smooth ride on the sea.
After the islands and the Blue cave, as a bonus part of the tour, our guides showed us a special spot on the way, which we never would have found, since it is not part of any other tours. Away from the tourists, we swam into a beautiful little cave with emerald green water and we and the kids had it all to ourselves. A great ending to a beautiful day.
Thanks again for a wonderful experience, we will be sure to return!
my Girlfriend an I decided we wanted to rent a boat for the day and head out around the Pakleni islands for the day... we hired this boat from the main rental shop just along the promenade of Hvar - price was good, only cost us 1200Kn (€160) and you have the boat all day up until around 6pm - quick introduction on the boat which as a 20HP steering wheel boat, plenty of space for sun bathing on.
Then we headed out towards the islands - stopping at every little turn, anchor down, jumping into the water and enjoy the day. Really was worth hiring this as Hvar can be quite busy in the day, nice to head out to sea and relax
Plenty of fuel in the engine to get you around, you could anchor up anywhere and perhaps go walks in land to grab food or enjoy the views, then head back out again. perfect boat for someone who doesn't have a license for bigger boats, its fast enough to get you around the islands. Well worth it
Great service and good recommendations
We hired a scooter from Antonio rental and the service was great. They gave us a full explanation of the workings of the scooter and then great tips on the best route to take on our day trip.
