Getting There & Away
A number of excursion boats leave from the Pula waterfront for the islands. Instead of booking an excursion with one of the travel agencies in Pula, Rovinj or Poreč, you could take public bus 21 from Pula to Fažana (15KN), 8km away, then sign up for a tour at the National Park Office, near the wharf. In July and August, tours cost 210KN per person (children 105KN). It’s best to book in advance, especially in summer, and request an English-speaking tour guide.
Check along the Pula waterfront for excursion boats to Brijuni. Note that many of the two-hour ‘panorama’ trips from Pula to Brijuni (150KN) don’t actually stop at the islands; make sure yours does.
