Diving in Korčula

Explore diving in Korčula

Off Korčula are the calm and mostly gentle currents of the Adriatic Sea. Dive operators are mostly located at the south and the west of the island at quaint little towns like Vela Luka. There are about 35 different dive sites off the coast of Korčula consisting of walls, overhangs, caves and also shipwrecks.

There are also shallow sites with sea grass which is a great place to look for seahorses. Some shipwrecks to check out include the Boca and the Garda. Both are covered in marine growth and easily accessible even for new divers. For those with a penchant for cave exploring, head to Blue Hole and Big Cave, both large and beautiful caves.

Many of the walls around the area are colorful, covered in sponges and sea fans with plenty of marine life to see.
