Diving in Croatia

Explore diving in Croatia

Croatia offers around 1000 islands all adorned with reefs, underwater caverns, pillars and canyons. There are plenty of wrecks to see too. Dive among WWI and WWII shipwrecks, all fallen in battle. There’s a B-17 bomber to see in addition to the older ships.

Head to the caves, a great dive where sunlight filters in, making for ethereal seascapes. This island is literally encircled with dive sites. From walls to wrecks to rocky reefs, there’s something here for divers of all levels.

Head to Bisevo to explore the Blue Cave, which can only be entered by a small boat. Once well within the cave, you can set out in your scuba gear to explore. Light enters the cave and permeates through the water, filling it with a calming blue glow.

When to dive in Croatia

To the north, situated at the foothills of the Alp and Dinarid mountain chains, Kvarner is one of the most beautiful gulfs on the Adriatic. It’s the closest warm water diving destination to Eastern Europe, and diving is possible all year. Kvarner's underwater world is known for amazing wall dives and rocky reefs covered with beautiful gorgonians
