The tour guide will explain to you all about the creatures you can see, such as sea urchins, fish, seaweed, jellyfish, and diverse corals. Your guide will also make sure that you have your once-in-a-lifetime memory immortalized as pictures and videos.

    Katarina is a great tour guide, chatty, cheerful and open minded. The two hour tour was really relaxing and chill. The led lights on the kayak makes it a special experience (when we were in Pula, there were some jelly fish like animals in the water, they are no harm to humans.. don’t worry. we were told that they appear close to the shore when the sea gets warm. Due to the led lights they had this white/transparent color, which was really cool. I’d definitely recommend to try this tour when you’re around Pula.
