Diving in Croatia
Croatia’s clear and blue sea with hundreds of diversified diving possibilities attracts lots of divers every years. Cliffy coasts with underwater caves and mysterious shipwrecks make the Adriatic sea so interesting.
Along the coast you can find numerous diving schools where you can rent diving equipment or attend a scuba diving course.
The diving area around Rovinj in Istria houses some shipwrecks inviting you to travel through time. The pretty well preserved luxury liner „Baron Gautsch“ can be discovered underwater as well as many other submerged wrecks.
The islands in front of Trogir in Dalmatia also belong to the most popular diving areas of the Adriatic Sea. Experienced divers can enjoy a true underwater paradise – colourful sponges, yellow and red corals and different species of fish. Less experienced divers can practice in the shallow bays and if you’re lucky you might see some seahorses.
The most popular diving area of the Kvarner bay is around the island of Krk: caves and red corals, shipwrecks and shallow bays make your dive pleasurable.
Individualists might like the less touristic area around the peninsula of Peljesac which is rather calm and intact. Swarms of parrotfish, dragonheads and colourful snails can be seen there. Furthermore, there is half a dozen of wrecks, of which the German speedboat sunken in World War II is probably the most impressive one.
