Emma and I had a wonderful time with Tea, who taught us well and showed us a lovely experience. She even helped me to face my fear and taught me to dive, apparently I went 3 metres down which is such an achievement for me. Wonderful time. Highly recommended.

Meeting point for the adventure is at Valovine Beach, at our beach rental centre (GPS Google maps: 44.861922, 13.810854). We will have a brief introduction of around 15-20 minutes where we will get to know each other, talk through the safety rules, and prepare our equipment for the tour.
We then head out from Seagull’s Rocks Beach, just 50 metres from the interesting Austro-Hungarian Fort. This peaceful location is one of the best beaches in Pula to become familiar with snorkeling. You’ll learn everything you need to know about ABC equipment (ABC equipment are masks, snorkels, and fins) and how to snorkel comfortably, safely, and responsibly.
Tryout The Shallow Water
We’ll make our first snorkeling steps in the shallow water. After everyone is comfortable with breathing, it’s time to swim/snorkel on.
Exploring While Floating
Snorkel and admire the underwater world filled with fishes, sea cucumbers, anemones, starfish, sea snails, and crabs. Let the sea relax you while listening to the gentle sounds of the sea. We will then enter the 30-metre-long cave and see the colourful corals at its entrance. Pose for some wonderful underwater photos your snorkeling guide will take while you continue to explore and enjoy this unique location.
Back To Seagull’s Rocks Beach
To complete the tour, we will make our way back to Seagull’s Rocks Beach. We’ll arrive at the shore and have some time to share the experience with the guide and each other. The experience will leave you wanting to snorkel every day!

What Our Guests Have Said
The communication with the organization went extremely well, also the departure times fitted nicely to our schedule (+ 3 times a day).
Once started, we were with a small group of total 4 + guide, we could clearly notice she liked what she did and told us alot about the coast + history of Croatia. I knew it would be awesome to do, but didn’t expect it to be this nice. When in Pula, I would definitly recommend Outdoor Pula over any other kayak tour.
Me and my boyfriend came from Italy to visit Pula and we booked this tour a while before coming here and we had high expectations…well we had THE BEST TIME EVER! The guide (Luka) was very nice to us and he told us a lot of interesting things that we didn’t know about. He was the best guide I’ve ever had. I suggest this experience to everyone, can’t wait to come back and try another experience with you guys!
They are the best! The tourguides that are guyding the group were super kind , caring ,very cooI and polite. I did a lot of aqua tours all over the world and this one really was worth each cent! I’m a student so i wouldn’t write a review here when it wasn’t good enough!They even take pictures of us and shared it with us per email. Its a 3 hours tour…small groups (max 8), you won’t get that tired or bored.. its just exactly suitable ( atleast was to me). You won’t regret it…
Nice experience for everyone! I wanted some small and quick activity between my breakfast and lunch. And it was a very right decision!
