      Lovely kayakday!
      Had a great day kayaking to the cave. We were with a small group, you get all the information and explanations well. Special way to see the cave from the inside. The pace of the kayaking was manageable for everyone it seemed. I would recommend it!

      Superb private (speed)boat tour
      We had a fantastic private (speed)boat tour this week. What a nice experience!! Owner takes good account of the weather situation to ensure an optimal and safe boat trip. We saw many beautiful places around Cape Kamenjak and several uninhabited islands in the Medulin Riviera: beautiful water caves, fish, dinosaur footprints, rare plants ... . Very nice contact: spontaneous and with great knowledge of the local situation. Highly recommended, both among adults and with children!

      Great speedboat trip, amazing guid
      After visiting kamenjak we stop at the windsurf station and noticed the speedboat tour. An ideal way to see the NP from the sea. The next morning we did the tour with Lovro and it was really amazing. He gave checked what we expected of the tour and adapted to it. Gave us many information on the region, made it a fun trip but also kept it safe. They had snorkeling gear for the cave and he joined us to take pictures.

      Well arranged acitivity!
      A little miscommunication on pick-up time so we arrived 10min late. Luckily our group were understanding and we proceeded with the kayaking activity. Our guides were very patient and their plan on the route for the way (considering whether and also the crowd due to other groups) made the experience great! We managed to avoid the other groups in some areas. It was great they provided watermelons after the activity and offered to lend us the kayaks for awhile if we like to play around a little more. Recommended!

      Custom Kayak Tour
      We did a full day custom tour which took in the cave exploration, dinosaur footprints, the safari bar and decent length paddle back to the Windsurf Station. We were very well looked after by Doris who guided us very well and was full of knowledge about the local area. We are a family of 4 with 2 x boys of 9 yrs and 10 yrs. All of us have some kayaking experience and had no problem with the trip at all, although do not necessarily expect it to be all calm waters for the entire trip....

      Kayaking group visit
      We booked via Viator for around £49 a person. The tour lasted from 10 am until around 2. Lovro and the lady ( can’t remember her name) were really nice, waiting patiently while some of group arrived as we came separately, taking go pro pics throughout and sending them too us and, reassuring members that were a bit less confident. The only tiny critique is the safety/educational briefing shouldn’t have been rushed , we said no one in our group had done kayaking and it was all going perfect until we hit a point of bad current. A little bit more guidance would have been good regarding how to go backwards so people were not being thrust into the rock, but it’s fine! Everyone made it ok uninjured! It is a long kayak , something to bear in mind as it was a good hour there and an hour back to shore and we did have someone who was pregnant ( albeit not too far along) in our group. It’s a strenuous activity. Also, in the photos advertised of the tour it looks like you would be in single kayaks and going through the caves. In fact it was 2 person kayaks and you don’t go through the caves ! That could be clearer on the website. The cave when you get there is pretty , crystal clear water like most of Croatia but nothing crazy special it has to be said. But that’s just my opinion from doing cave diving in Italy and Mexico. Despite having a little snorkel, there was a real striking absence of marine life, a few fish at best which was sad. All that being said, we all had a fabulous time and would definitely recommend as a trip and would return if in the area!

      definitely not worth it
      my partner and i rented a double kayak to explore premantura peninsula coast thinking that it would be less crowded since it was a nature reserve. there is no part of premantura peninsula that can't be reached by car so the chances finding an piece of coastline with no people was slim to none here. istrakayak/windsurf station also fails to notify potential customers on their website that they will have to pay the 80 kuna entrance fee for the nature reserve in order to get to the kayak rental. i got to windsurf station when they opened at 10 am but was told to wait 20 minutes until they got a group of people who had booked a kayak/cave tour sorted. an hour later (after the owner had drive to the tip of the peninsula to check conditions and the other group was told their tour was cancelled due to wind/wave conditions) i was able to finally get someones assistance to rent the kayak. i'm not sure why the owner hadn't checked the conditions before their rental shop opened for the day to save everyone a lot of time standing around waiting for him to get back? i had hoped to kayak to the caves myself but due to conditions, was unable. entire day was a waste. if you are thinking of doing some sea kayaking, i would recommend going somewhere else that isn't as crowded and expensive as premantura peninsula.

      Absolutely Awesome
      We had a great time with Lovro and his crew. It was a beautiful day to kayak and swim up the coast. They provide good instructions and do not leave any one behind. It was the highlight of our trip so far. You will enjoy their friendly service.

      Pula Cliffs and Cave Adventure
      My friends and I had a wonderful time on our kayaking adventure with AktivistSports! They were very friendly throughout our communication to book our adventure. Luka was very helpful with all of us kayaking. He took beautiful photos along the way and explained some really interesting things that we passed as we kayaked. We kayaked for about 3 hours along the coast. We first stopped for some cliff jumping and snorkeling then we proceeded to the Instagram famous cave. Neither one disappointed. I am a big weeny with heights but I had so much fun jumping! And the cave is indescribably beautiful. The blue water is lit up from the sun and is just so awesome. I would highly recommend this trip or any activity with AkitivistSport!

      Kayaking, cliffs and cave adventure!
      I loved it! So much fun! Went with my Friends - we booked very last minute (the night before!) and they were happy to accommodate us. Luca was our guide and he was so good, telling us info aswell as making sure everyone in the group is okay / giving tips to kayak easier. Later he asked us if we would like an adventure or a relaxed time (our group all said adventure) and we went cliff jumping - such an exhilarating time that was the best part of my holiday. Would highly recommend to anyone as even if your not up for cliff jumping (as two in our group decided not to in the end) he brings along snorkelling gear and there are loads of little coves to explore :) Highly recommend! Thanks guys!

      Pula Cliffs & Cave Adventure
      We did the Pula Cliffs & Cave Adventure as a family of 4 in two kayaks with our two sons (8 and 9 years old both with some kayaking experience). We all had a great time and Eva really looked after us very well.

    Lovro and the team were just extremely welcoming and authentic on my first ever solo travel. Kelli, my tour guide was very genuine and professional through out my experience, from ensuring safety gear to healthy snack were covered for our tour. Extremely friendly bunch who lets you pat their cute puppies, and even offered me food and was offering to lend me cash if in case I couldn't find the ATM after giving me a lift to my next destination! Very kind and genuine people, very skilled with the camera/gopro too! An adventure I'd never forget. . .

    We had a wonderful trip by kayak to a cave where we were swimming, diving and cliff jumping. The organizers were very nice, answering every question and telling interesting stories about the area. They were also taking pictures of every group. You don't need to bring your own camera. I can highly recommend the tour. It was a lot of fun.

    My girlfriend and I we have chosen the 3 hours tour to visit underwater caves. We have a wonderful experience: guides were very kind and caves are really breathtaking. Swimming inside them among fishes into the wonderful water was amazing.

    Beautiful water, scenery, great staff, they watched over us and kept us where we needed to be, the gear was nice (masks, kayaks). Paddle out and in was pretty strenuous took like 40 min, and if you are a weak swimmer this might not be for you, unless you wear lifejacket whole time, I did a lot of treading in deep water in cave and around cave, but there’s usually a rock somewhere to grab or sit on for a bit, so it wasn’t too bad. Cold watermelon upon our return was amazing, also gave dry bag for the trip and banana and water. Worth the money for sure, our guides one from Pula one from Germany were great and so nice to talk to.

    Great family experience. Very attentive guides, giving confidence to our 10-years old daughter to enter the cave (watch your head!), complimenting her for the kayak skills. Feeding the fish was alsof a highlight.

    Our tourguide gave us a lot of information about the weather conditions in this area, kayaking, wildlife and sights of the penisula. We had a very entertaining afternoon. Apart from kayaking we were exploring the cave, snorkeling and cliff jumping! A great experience for the whole family!

    Fantastic tour!! Our guides were great, friendly, knowledgeable and professional. Everything was really well-organized. Kayak is the perfect way to explore this area - sooo much nicer than a big tour boat full of people. Plenty of time to explore the cave and jump the cliffs! Big thumbs up!

    Great day of kayaking, swimming in the cave, and snorkeling. Due to the wind, they choose another starting location, which they communicated clearly. Friendly guides, really trying (and succeeding) to give us a great experience.

    Great experience on the beautiful coast of Premantura. The kayak trip of 45 min to the caves required some physical strength. The kayaking technique was well explained and the guides made sure the group stayed together and the speed was doable for everyone.
    Around the cave we saw plenty of fish. We entered the cave by a short swim under water, through a space in the rocks. This was also guided very well. The cave itself was wonderful.
    The children were allowed to jump from the cliffs, which was again carefully explained by the guides.
