Then, sail between the two islands, Frašker and Fraškerić, where you will have a unique chance to see sea-urchins and sea-cucumbers. You will have the opportunity to stop and swim in the clear turquoise waters amongst the fish before stopping at Verudela canyon and cave. This magnificent rock formation is popular amongst cliff divers so you might be able to spot some daredevils too.

Tour August 2021 Booked the tour for 6 people. The kayak sizes could be chosen by yourself. As described, you can explore the nearby islands yourself, which provided a certain flexibility and interest. All equipment was provided. After a short explanation and briefing from the very friendly staff, the tour started at the diving school. Snorkeling between the islands or on the cliffs was amazing. The time of 2.5 hours is sufficient to drive everything once and for 2-3 snorkeling stops.
The boat ride was really beautiful. The two who did this together left nothing to be desired. The food and drinks were great. We stopped at 2 places, so you could swim or snorkel. On top of that, there was an Istrian schnapps at the end :-)
Great tour with a very accommodating crew. The food was not only rich and varied, but also lovingly presented. Not a run-of-the-mill excursion, but a special experience. We liked it a lot
Beautyful Experience and the Tourguides are excellent. Food was tasty and made with Love. I can recommend it.
It was great fun, you discover corners that you would probably not see. A nice adventure.
