If you want to visit as many islands in one day then choosing one of the available island hopping tours is your best choice. The tours are usually called 5 island tours, or 6 island tours, or named after the most popular attraction, Blue Cave tours. These tours take you to visit the most important and most popular island destinations near Split. Since there are lots of destinations which far from each other, all island hopping tours are organized using speedboats. Please note that the speedboats do gain some speed and if the sea is not completely calm, the ride might get a bit bumpy. It's not necessary a bad thing, but the ride is not really a relaxing one as holding a glass full of water during the ride might be a challenge :) Just something to keep in mind, especially if you plan to take your kids. These tours have been popularized in the recent years, and most speedboat island-hopping tours have almost identical itineraries.
Apart from the destinations that are visited by island hopping tours, other destinations that are interesting to visit by a boat tour are Bol (and it's famous golden horn beach) and the Blue Lagoon (situated on the islands Krknjaši), but they are a bit out of hand so none of the island hopping tours visit these destinations. These destinations are mostly visited by bigger and slower boats and offer a more relaxing cruise. You can read more about Split boat tours
