Full description
You'll meet your boat, the Ariete, at the Pula harbor across from Tito's Park. Once you've boarded and found a spot on deck, lean back, relax and enjoy the ride. Leaving Pula, you will enjoy amazing views of the city's amphitheater,​ and then sail along the Brijuni archipelago, making your way to your first stop at Rovinj. In Rovinj, you will have around 2.5 hours of free time, accompanied by a local guide. Your guide will give you an overview of the beautiful town, explore its little streets and alleys with you, tell you more about its history, and answer questions you may have. Soak up the atmosphere of this picturesque historic town. Once you leave Rovinj, the boat will set sails for Lim Fjord, a channel not far away and famous for its water-life and narrow width. If you are very lucky, you might even spot some dolphins. This is also where lunch will be served on board. Enjoy your meal while cruising through the canal, enjoying stunning views of the greenery and your surroundings. After lunch, you'll head straight to the Red Island, where you will have another 2.5 hours to spend. Go swimming in the deep blue Croatian Sea or just relax on the beach while sunbathing, before returning to Pula at the end of your tour.

A wonderful day, because a perfectly organized trip. Nice people. Service at the highest level. The guide in Rovinj is a hilarious, charming woman, it is worth taking advantage of and learning a little about this beautiful town. Delicious food, we ordered vege and it was grilled vegetables, although it must be admitted that the fish looked amazing on the neighbors' plate. On the ship you can buy coffee, drinks, beer, etc. On the way back, delicious pancakes with chocolate and cookies for HRK 20 were offered. It's worth taking some cash with you. The toilet on the ship is very clean. Beautiful views We highly recommend. Thank you to the crew and we hope to come back someday.

This Trip was just amazing. We were accompanied with live gentle music, the girl sang beautifuly and a nice guitarist. The walk in Rovinj was beautiful and informative. The tourist guide was very interesting while telling the facts and the stories about the city. Then we had relaxing sunbathing on the Island. The food was okay. So I would totally recommend it.

Lovely day out in Croatia

My Husband left his insulin at the Hotel 20 mins away and only realised as we approached the boat. The staff were amazing. Ivan the owner drove my husband back to the hotel to collect his insulin then brought him back to boat.. no money asked for. Excellent day all round.
