The educational 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 and a snorkel.
The excursion includes vessel transportation from Fažana to Veliki Brijun island (and back), 3 hours long free bike rental for an easy sightseeing and a 45 minutes long snorkeling tour with swimming at small depths, using an audio guide and educational panels set up at various experiential points. 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 an audio guide under the sea.
The excursion includes vessel transportation from Fažana to Veliki Brijuni Island. The meeting and starting point of the excursion is Fažana's parking lot.
Children under the age of 12 must have appropriate adult supervision. Visitors will be provided with the necessary snorkelling gear (diving mask and snorkel). Due to limited number of participants per group and audio guide language variations previous booking is required at email@example.com or +385 52 525 882. Thank you ;-)
