Tour Overview

The adventure starts at Valovine Beach, near Stoja campsite. 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 fun part begins!

Sea Kayaking
Next, we set out onto the water, enjoying a gentle paddle for around 4 kilometres. The real magic starts when we find our own tempo and begin gliding across the turquoise sea with every stroke. During this time we will take breaks for snorkeling, cliff jumping, cave exploring, and a picnic!

Visit the Canyon & Cliffs
The first stop is at a small canyon, where we have some time to explore the area filled with secret spots and fascinating formations. By the cliffs, there’s a point for taking stunning photos under the old military bunkers built on the cliffs.

Snorkeling & Cliff Jumping
During a beach break, which lasts around 45-60 minutes, it’s snorkeling time and an opportunity to get to know the underwater life of the Northern Adriatic. Also, for the thrill-seekers, there’s a chance to jump from the rocks into the water; some classic Pula cliff jumping!

Cave Kayaking
On the last part, we paddle into the Seagull’s cave, illuminated with headlights, and explore its shapes, stalactites, cosy little beach, and animals who call this cave home. Experience the stunning Pula cave kayaking with the iridescent sea lighting the curving cave walls.

Back To Our Meeting Point
From here, we make our way back to where we started where our tour sadly comes to an end and we must say our goodbyes.
