Be a SeaStar Hero!

Enjoy a unique project that combines care for the undersea and tourism and become a SeaStar Hero – explore the undersea, have fun and do a good deed for nature, while at the same time achieving numerous benefits!

We offer you the opportunity to discover Pula and its underwater world in a completely new way – you can do good, win prizes, and become a famous SeaStar Hero. As part of our tourist offer, you can do a good deed for our planet while showing that caring for nature can be fun, stimulating, and accessible to everyone. Engage in collecting waste from the sea and preserving the marine environment in a fun way.

How to participate?

Track down the locations to pick up your equipment at one of the two Pula beaches – Stoja and Hidrobaza.

Participating is easy – just go to the person in charge of safety on the beach, i.e. the lifeguard, announce your participation, pick up net and protective gloves, and start diving and removing waste from the sea. Every diver who brings back the equipment and the surfaced waste to the person in charge of safety on the beaches, wins a symbolic award in form of a badge whereas divers who collect a larger amount of waste win a t-shirt. Participants who win the t-shirt also win the SeaStar title, which grants them benefits in catering facilities throughout the city for one day.

All additional information can be found on the website, and we invite you to share your heroic deed on social networks with the hashtag #seastarhero to encourage others to join, and don’t forget to follow us on Instagram for updates.

In their selfless contribution to environmental protection SeaStar Heroes are supported by the Pula Tourism Board, City of Pula, Herculanea and WWF Adria, as well as restaurateurs and local craftsmen throughout the city.
