Premantura: Sea Cave Kayak Tour

1. Premantura: Sea Cave Kayak Tour

The starting point of this kayak experience is Cape Kamenjak, a protected natural park south of Pula. From one of its charming pebble beaches, you will start your adventure after a quick briefing from the tour guides. After settling in the kayaks, you'll paddle for approximately 50 minutes following the rugged coast while enjoying the summer scenery all the way to the Kolombarica Sea Cave. In the cave, you'll swim in the turquoise water lit by the sun rays that enter through a cave opening above. Snorkeling and exploring the vibrant sea life of Kamenjak is a memory you'll want to remember. That's why this tour includes free GoPro photos. If you're an adrenaline seeker, you'll love jumping from the cliffs (up to 15m high) after exploring the cave. If not, you can enjoy some time sunbathing, swimming, snorkeling, and relaxing. On the way back, the tour guides will make short stops as needed. If you're interested, you can find out some amazing facts about the area. This tour is an ideal summer experience for friends and families. It's completely safe and suitable for beginners and kids.

Rovinj: Postojna Cave and Predjama Castle

2. Rovinj: Postojna Cave and Predjama Castle

Your tour will begin with Postojna Cave, one of the best-known caves in the world and one of the world’s largest karst monuments. This is the only place in the world where the underground landscape can be traversed on an electric train and where you can meet this underground kingdom’s most famous inhabitant, the proteus (olm), up close.  From here the tour extends to the Predjama Castle which reigns over the surrounding area in the idyllic village of Predjama. This picturesque, magnificent, defiant, mysterious and impregnable castle has been perched in the middle of a vertical 123-meter high cliff for more than 800 years. Its romantic appeal is further emphasized by the idyllic Lokva River, which disappears into the underground world deep below the castle. As the only preserved cave castle in Europe, the Predjama Castle offers a unique insight into the building techniques and resourcefulness of people in the Middle Ages, who found a safe harbor for themselves right at the entrance of the cave. During a siege that took place in the 15th century, the castle provided a refuge for its best known and most notorious owner, Erazem of Predjama. The legend of the courageous robber baron Erazem, who remained undefeated until one of his servants betrayed him, is still in people’s minds, inspiring and alluring as ever.

Very nice tour, especially as a family with our boys - highly recommended. We booked the 1st tour of the day at 9 a.m., I would do it again and again, still very quiet and not too crowded. The guides reported a lot about the nature reserve and also helped all the children to dive into the cave, there was also enough time for snorkeling and diving. The group consisted of a total of 6 x 2-seater kayaks, so it was great. On the other hand, when you see the crowded tourist ships in the high season, this tour was very pleasant. All in all, we can only highly recommend it.

The whole package was great: the guides are super nice waiting, made everything possible, very competent. The kayaks were great. Everything we experienced was spectacular (cave diving, cliff jumping,...) and the guides always had an eye on us (or their camera!!!!!!)! Our kids 12 and 16 loved it! I can only recommend it warmly!!!!

Very friendly guides, me and my 14 year old son decided to do the tour and loved the underwater caves and the fishes and then we got to jump off the rocks into the wonderful waters of Kamenjak. They also explained everything to us very well about the islands and gave us good tips. Many greetings

The kayak tour was fantastic. The guides were very experienced and helpful. I would recommend this 1/3 day adventure to everyone.

Amazing tour, perfect tour guide, very well organized trip!
