Kvarner Bay is an excellent outlet into the Adriatic Sea, gorgeous blue and crystal clear. The rocky coastline drops down to form fascinating formations, and shipwrecks lie quietly at the bottom of the gulf.
The ships scattered throughout this region all have fascinating stories to tell, so delve deep into the history to get the fullest experience.
Dive sites are scattered all along the coastline and out around the islands in the bay. Plic Tenki is a favorite site, a tremendous wall dive that also boasts some impressive rock pinnacles. The wall itself is home to an abundance of fish and gorgonians, and you’ll want to come back to explore again and again.

Take a bus or rent a car to get to the shore of Kvarner Bay. The large cities of Rijeka and Pula are great jumping off points to the many islands within the bay. Ferry from one to the other, it’s inexpensive and exciting!
