Vis is the farthest island into the sea, known as the Pearl of the Adriatic. While planning a trip to Croatia, it is difficult to miss it. It is known for beautiful, flooded wrecks in the area. It also charms with its diversity of flora and fauna. Archaeological spots and underwater caves are wonderful exploration destination.
It is worth to dive to the wreck of Teti on depth from 10 to 33 yards. Advanced divers should also be interested in the huge Vassilios T. shipwreck lying on the right side next to the slopes. It is 104 metres long.
Evening time is ideal to explore the Gulf of Komiża. It is the time when creatures such as cuttlefish, moray eels, or crabs activate.
When searching for places for diving on the island of Brač, it is worth paying attention to the Kobilarat. It is a small, Northern Peninsula. Under water, there is about a 60-meter high wall and in its hollows you can admire the crawfish and the really big octopus.
Also the cave of Lucice will provide you with enormity of the experience. It is worth to see it because of the beautiful colorful light and its interesting layout.
At the island of Hvar, diving sites are characterized by a large variety of terrain. Tunnels, vertical walls or caves are only part of its beautiful sculpture. Each of these sites offers a different dive profile, a different light, and each time a little different world of underwater creatures. It is worth to see two sunken fishing boats in the Strait of Split Vrata.

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.
