The underwater trail in Verige Bay on the southern side of Veli Brijun offers the unique experience of visiting natural and archaeological sites in the exceptionally rich and well preserved marine world of Brijuni National Park. The approximately 500 metres long trail is not particularly demanding. In fact, it has been designed to appeal to users of all ages who can swim and use a diving mask, snorkel and fins.
The excursion includes vessel transportation from Fažana to Veliki Brijun island (and back), transport to Verige bay and a 1 hour long snorkeling tour with a personal guide, swimming and diving at small depths. Visitors are introduced to the exceptionally valuable contents that may only be seen by means of diving into the sea such as the well-known hydro-archaeological site - a part of the ancient complex of a sumptuous Roman villa from the first century submerged under the sea due to rising sea levels.
There are numerous populations of fish, sea cucumbers, sea urchins, algae, sea sponges, crabs and shellfish; as well as the especially attractive noble pen shell, a rare and endangered endemic species strictly protected by law. Beside visual perceptions, the tour is special as it offers lots of interesting informations provided by the guide.
