Where to dive in Croatia: Cetina river

Diving in Cetina river

Croatia offers many beautiful dive sites. This beautiful Mediterranean country offers us more diving attractions than just the Adriatic Sea. One of them is the source of the Cetina river, that ends its course in the Adriatic sea. It is located on the South of Croatia, about 30 km inland from the city of Split. Diving in Cetina guarantees unforgettable experience. This article gives you the answer where to dive in Croatia and details about Cetina river.

Diving conditions

The water at the source is crystal clear and reaches about a dozen degrees in the summer. The view alone is amazing. Nearby the Church which is situated on the scarp, we can see the beautiful, blue source of 40 meters diameter that is 115 ft deep. It looks like a blue eye.

It is characteristic for Cetina trout living there. They are endemic to this place, which means that you will not find them anywhere else in the world. While diving in the Cetina River you will likely encounter them often, some of them reach lengths as long as 50 cm. The limestone walls of the tank are quite steep and rocks in the source take on very interesting forms. At a depth of around 35 meters, there are two side tunnels. Below this depth, the walls are already vertical. Diving in the source is an amazing underwater experience!

Transparent water probably makes the largest positive impression on divers. The shape of the church is visible underwater, even at depths of 40m. Noteworthy is also the unusual vegetation, located close to the surface. We highly recommend that anyone who visits Croatia also visit the source of the Cetina River. Once you experience it, you will want to come back.

I’ve been diving for almost 10 years. The underwater world won my heart quite quickly. From the very beginning I wanted to be a good diver and partner, so I kept practising until I got a Master Scuba Diver PADI degree. I dive in hot and cold waters around the world. The thing I like most about diving is the sense of weightlessness and possibility to dive in the depths. I’m not too demanding when it comes to the landscapes, although I do enjoy their diversity, so I like diving in different places and conditions.
