Uber Technologies launched its speedboat service in Croatia on Friday, June 30, connecting major tourist spots along the country’s Adriatic coast.
UberBOAT, which offers speedboats for up to 12 people, has already been tested in Istanbul and Miami among other locations, and will operate in Croatia during the summer tourist season.
The service will be available, via the Uber app, from the cities of Split and Dubrovnik in the southern Adriatic as well as from the island of Hvar. The price of hiring a speed boat for up to eight people to travel from Split to Hvar, for example, will cost $400.
The users will be able to define their own itinerary during their trips or opt for an organized schedule involving some of the most popular destinations.
Croatia is a popular tourist destination in Europe with tourism accounting for 18 percent of the country’s gross domestic product.
