In Croatia, the sea is never far away. The Adriatic has formed throughout the ages to become the crystal blue waters we know today. Along its coastline it is peppered with thousands of tiny islands. Divers have yet to explore even a fraction of this and as such, trips here often include an element of exploration. With day boat diving, you can see all the highlights of this region in complete comfort. Swim through overhangs, cruise along the reef wall and marvel at the wealth of marine life. Croatia has one of the richest bio diversity ratings in all of Europe. Dolphin hunt their prey as octopus and scorpion fish hide in the wall. Wrecks complete the dive itinerary in this peaceful and sumptuous location. Visit it today before the secret gets out!

Just a very brief note to try to express how much I enjoyed my latest trip with yourselves, everything was wonderful!
The diving season begins in earnest in Croatia from around May and runs until September, which is when the water is at its warmest. This is a really popular option during school holidays so do make your travel plans well in advance.
The sheltered nature of the coastline and island formations mean this diving is suitable for all diver levels. There is a good amount of marine life to hunt out or if you are more interested in topography there are some really impressive caves and overhangs.
- Overhangs and caves to explore
- Crustaceans of all sizes
- Mullet, mackerel and buvka
- Gorgonians and sponges on wall dives
Top dive sites to visit: Peltastis wreck, Punta Jilo, Vrbnik Cave, Glavina Cathedral
