It’s time to head to Croatia for a fishing trip with Flipper Pula Fishing. Owned and operated by Captain Dean, this is his family business that he runs with his son. He was raised just meters from the water, so it’s no wonder that he loves to fish, dive, and explore the world under the sea! He will do everything he can do to make sure you have a great experience fishing with him.

Hop on board the 39’ motor yacht that has plenty of room for groups of 12 to fish from. All 12 can fish at the same time if they wish and have the skills to cast away from each other. The boat is decked out with navigational and safety features so you can fish with peace of mind.

You’ll head out 30 minutes from shore to fish depths of 30 meters for a range of species, including Sea Bass, Common Pandora, Rockfish, Mackerel, Sea Bream, and more. There is a fish out here for every angler of all skill levels!

Children of all ages are welcome on board and life vests are provided for them. Capt. Dean is very family orientated and will make sure the kids are having a great time fishing. On the 8-hour trip you can also go swimming, so don’t forget your towel and swimsuit!

Feel free to bring your own food and drinks along, which can go into the captain’s cooler on board.

Everyone over 14 in the group will need to buy a fishing license. The license can be bought at Activa Travel agency in Pula. You must bring photo ID with you!

Included in the price of the trip are the rods and reels for the day. Fly fishing, jigging, and spinning are possible if you bring your own equipment.

Whether this is a family trip, vacation with friends, or a team bonding, your group will love a day out with Flipper Pula Fishing.

Fishing is one of those things that you can never become bored with. Since I grew up in a house 20 meters from the sea, how could I not spend my time as a child fishing, diving and exploring the world under the water. Over the years, I've been fishing all over Istria. In 2001, I bought the boat that I now have. I take good care of it and it runs beautifully, so I started to make private excursion and fishing trips.
