This is a great tour we would recommend for everyone. You get away from the crowds at the beach for a very interesting trip into a cave, optional cliff-diving and snorkeling – and of course the coastal kayaking itself. We had the best underwater views during our whole holiday during this tour. Big advantage of this tour is the small size of the group (we were two couples and one familiy of four). Don’t go with a provider that has very large groups! For our family with “children” age 15 and 22, this was one of the absolute highlights of our vacation.

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!
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!
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.

What Our Guests Have Said
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).
