We took the night Glow tour and it was wonderful. Me, my wife and 14yo, 12yo and 10yo children. They simply loved it. It’s really one of those “very unusual” experiences that I’m sure they will remember for a very long time. To be able to swim at night inside a cave was surreal. Highly recommended.

The adventure starts at Valovine Beach, at our KAYAK & SUP beach rental centre (GPS Google maps: 44.861922, 13.810854). We will have a brief 15-20 minute introduction so that we can get to know each other, learn or refresh the basics of paddling and talk through the safety instructions. Once that is done, the night kayaking can begin!
Next, we set out onto the water, kayaking along the coastline on illuminated kayaks which allow us to see under the sea surface, enjoying the night sky away from the city lights and all the crowds.
Cave & Canyon
We then proceed towards the canyon and paddle a bit faster and longer, after which we enter the 30 metres long Pidgeon’s cave where it’s possible to take a night swim – if you dare? The lights below our kayaks show us the way and give us a special feeling since the cave gets illuminated with different colours. We have about 15-20 minutes to relax and/or take some nice photos of this stunning scenery. You’re welcome to bring your mobile phone with you!

What Our Guests Have Said
Sehr zu empfehlen war das Nachtkajaking mit Besuch einer Hölle/Grotte. Die Kajaks sind mit Beleuchtung ausgestattet und machen die Fahrt zu einem Erlebnis! Nettes Team (Maida und Luca) mit vielen Informationen welche unaufdringlich weitergeben wurden. Unsere Jungs (beide 14 Jahre) waren total begeistert! Gerne wieder…
Highly recommend this tour and if you want to avoid larger crowds and enjoy the cave without many tourists this is the tour! If your lucky enough like us and it’s a full moon it will only add to your magical experience. Thank you to Tea and Saša for being really fun & great guides!
Few years ago we did a coasteering tour with Pula Outdoor and it was great. This time we chose night glow kayaking to the cave and this experience was even better than the first one. I have never seen so many bright stars and a large orange moon as it started rising at the finish of the tour. Thank you Majda and Tea for a great time 🙂
