You can make your visit to the Slovenian coast more interesting and dynamic by taking a ride on a Subaquatic motor boat. This is the only vessel of this kind on the Slovenian coast and in the Adriatic. Climb aboard this glass bottom boat, view the underwater world and enjoy a sightseeing tour.

Your sightseeing journey will begin in a small harbour by the Bernardin hotel and continue passing the bay of Portorose and towns of Piran, Fiesa, Pacug and Strunjan. From the boat you will enjoy an open view of the old salt warehouses, Savudrija peninsula, the walled town of Piran, the Madonna headland with a lighthouse, the Church of St George, the bay of Strunjan with shell farms and the oldest salt pans in the north-eastern Adriatic. The tour lasts 1 hour and 30 minutes.

If you wish to enhance your experience even more, you can enjoy a picnic on the boat, take professionally guided coast tours, go swimming in the Žusterna aqua park, visit the Piran aquarium ... The possibilities are endless, limited only by your imagination. We leave the choice to you!
