From the beginning of time, Istria was situated at the crossroads of the most important trade routes, which led from the mouth of the river Po’ down across the Adriatic coast, forwarding to the far east.

The traffic character of the area was so prominent that it boosted the first ports and citadels, even inland, with the continuity of their existence traceable from ancient history (the Middle Bronze Age to Roman conquest) through a vibrant exchange of goods from far away. The vine, olive oil, salt, and stone from Istria were shipped all around the Roman Empire and later on to the Venetian Republic of Serrenissima. Through those routes till the 16th century, the oriental spices were reaching Europe and were the cause of the geographical discoveries.
Today you can snorkel around the coast of Istria on the most exciting snorkeling locations where the ancient Romans were traveling by admiring its natural beauty.

In Pula

The Natural A unique place due to its interesting geomorphological shape - a stone bridge and 3 semi-opened caves that can be explored by foot or snorkeling. Here you can find a reef in the form of a fish. Its magnificent beauty is calling you to dive and play! Ideal for Families with kids. Havaian (name inspired by the palette of blue colours) This snorkeling spot is a true delight for your eyes as the underwater itinerary goes along the coastline with canyon scenery while at the same time you can admire the underwater walls that reach greater depth. Here you will find an underwater arch to snorkel through and hidden coral gardens. In proximity there are diving spots to boost yourself with adrenaline too. Marine life is here for you to explore in shallow or deeper waters depending on your snorkeling skills.

In Poreč

Pical (situated on the proximity of an ancient roman pier) This mysterious snorkeling location owes its particularity to an interesting formation of big stone blocks that form an underwater labyrinth laying on a sandy bottom in shallow water. The rocks reach almost the surface. Narrow passages and arches are favourite hiding places for marine life. Is not surprising that the remains of various ceramics, roof tiles of roman villas can also be found at the bottom.

In Marčana (near Pula)

Školjić, Kavran (wild natural rocky bay with tiny pebbles) The bay is surrounded by beautiful rocky slabs that slowly dive into the clear waters of the Kvarner offering a view toward the island of Cres. The bay hides a small canyon with an imposing column and a twin underwater arch that you can dive through. There is a vibrant marine life in every notch lying under the slopes that seem carved.
