This excursion was just fantastic and exciting at the same time! Our guide Maida was super friendly, funny and really enjoyable. It wouldn't have been half as good without you. The excursion starts with cave and jellyfish visits and ends with cliff jumping, snorkeling and fresh fruit. Meanwhile, Maida always explains something, also brings in a historical part and takes great pictures, which you get afterwards by mail. All in all, we can only recommend this kayak trip and would do it again and again! Thank you thank you thank you! Price-performance ratio completely in order!

At the end of our vacation in Croatia, my partner and I spontaneously took part in a kayak tour. Luca was a great tour guide. He spoke good and clear English, told us a lot about the spots. He was open, nice and attentive and the 3 hours flew by. We also really liked the cave! Included in the price were buoyancy aids, which are a must, waterproof bags, water, fruit, a wetsuit (optional for frostbite), snorkel and goggles. It is definitely an experience and I would recommend it to everyone.

Fantastic experience and wonderful kayak trip including cave tour, opportunity for snorkeling and cliff jumping. Our guide Luka was very nice, sociable and relaxed, and took time for all group members. Absolute recommendation for vacation in Pula.
