Diving

Are you searching for a unique diving experience? The Dubrovnik Riviera offers just that: spectacular diving in unforgettable natural beauty – in the heart of Europe! Where else can you enjoy in the wealth of sea life, dive through caves, see the underwater walls and enjoy the beauty of the best preserved fortified medieval city in Europe all in the same day?

The Dubrovnik Riviera ensures truly exciting dive sites for each diver. We must emphasize the “museum on the sea floor” near Cavtat, which is the largest amphora site in the Adriatic and one of the ten largest in the Mediterranean. This was the site where a ship carrying a cargo of 50,000 litres of oil from a northern African port sank in ancient times (3rd century B.C.). The site has undergone conservation with the assistance of the Croatian Ministry of Culture, and has been fenced in by a metal cage. Over a thousand amphorae are visible over an area of 200 m2 and under these, the remnants of the sunken ship are visible, as are many sea inhabitants who have found their own protected habitat.

This find, considering the fact that it is at only 30m depth, is also accessible to amateur divers. It can be visited in an organized tour and with the official guidance of members of the ‘Epidaurum’ diving club. Other dive clubs and their expert divers are available to those in love with underwater beauty.

Diving in Lastovo

Underwater diving will reveal the undiscovered world and beauty of the Adriatic sea. Diving in crystal blue water of Lastovo archipelago and discovering the enchanting, rich submarine world and the finest underwater beauty will bring you many fantastic memories. Seeing corals, algae, fish and shell fish, old boat wrecks and amphora will give you a great pleasure. Numerous bays, cliffs and an island group called Lastovnjaci on the eastern side are a real submarine “heaven” for divers. If you want to learn to dive, the island offers two diving schools. Diving is allowed only if you are accompanied by a diving guide from an authorized diving centre. On the island authorization have diving centers: “Ancora” in Zaklopatica and “Diving Paradise – Lastovo” in Pasadur.

Mljet is rich in marine biology which can be seen in the exceptional dive sites, underwater caves and coral reefs. A large collection of amphora found underwater show that Mljet is situated on an important maritime route of ancient Greek galleys and sailing through the Adriatic. The crystal clear sea only further enhances the experience of exciting day and night dives into the big blue.

Jacques Cousteau, a famous oceanologist and deep sea explorer, was particularlly impressed with Mljet’s rich underwater world.

Leaving the island, he was sure to comment Mljet as one of the best diving destinations in the world!
