Croatia Diving Holidays

Throughout the ages Europe’s finest and richest have flocked to Croatia to benefit from the sparkling weather and soothing sea breezes. Today Croatia is just over an hour from the UK. Let your holiday begin - be it marveling the imposing architecture and fascinating museums or enjoying a sampler in one of Croatia’s vibrant bars and restaurants. This small country is over flowing with wildlife, both above and below the waves, and has miles of enticing beaches. Perched on the Adriatic Sea, the coastline is scattered with over a thousand islands, which creates a truly idyllic scene.

Croatia is emerging as one of Europe’s most interesting dive destinations and the government is keen to ensure that it remains as healthy and vivid as ever. All divers are required to purchase a diver permit before hitting the water at a nominal charge. And the world underwater is well worth preserving. Sheltered from strong currents, the marine life gently ebbs and flows in gin clear water. Winding past gorgonians and anemone, divers can creep into the many caverns and overhangs. Dolphins are often spotted in the summer months and Croatia’s wrecks are a great place to head for if you are a macro lover. Croatia will certainly suit any diver, irrespective of experience, and as the sun sets over the beautiful sea, you will not want to leave.
