The waters of the islands of Šolta, Brač, Hvar and Vis are a real submarine paradise with locations for diving in the turquoise clear sea, underwater pyramids and caves, underground water sources and sunken fishing, merchant and warships. Geological diversity, and channels, wrecks from ancient storms, will take you into a world of unique tranquillity and submarine beauty.
DO NOT MISS:
In the underwater around Vis around thirty airplanes were found, that were mostly bombers from World War II. Around the Vis archipelago there are three sites intended for diving enthusiasts. The first is a B-17G bomber, situated 150 metres off the Polivalo cape, which sank in 1944 on the southern coast of the island, at the exit of Rukavac bay. The plane lies at a depth of 72 metres and is about one of the most valuable aircraft wrecks in Croatia and in the world. The powerful bomber lies in the deep blueness and is almost undamaged. It is even possible to see inside the cockpit.
The Vela Grčka bay hides a cave in its seabed which is located at a depth of 10 metres. This diving site is suitable for diving beginners. The Paklinski Islands also have interesting diving locations. The best known is that near the islet of Vodnjak. In waters surrounding Vodnjak there is a sunken stone obelisk that is reminiscent of a bell tower which is why the locals named it Kampanel. The top of the obelisk is located at a depth of 10 metres. Go even deeper under the water and you will see a canyon with red gorgonians and a 5-metre-long tunnel.
The popular Lučice cave on the southwest side of Brač is situated in the middle of the eastern side of the bay, just by the coast. Access is only possible by boat, but it is easy to find because the entrance to the cave is at a depth of just four metres, on an almost horizontal plateau and is clearly visible from the surface. The entrance consists of two nearly connected openings, which are three to four metres wide.
