CROATIA'S UNDERWATER

Croatia's underwater has more than 85 registered diving locations with descriptions. Dive down to ancient sailboats and coral reefs, visit underwater caves and warship wrecks inhabited by schools of fish. Discover Croatia's underwater! ISTRIA: PASSENGER FERRY WRECK BARON GAUTSCH, 8 NM FROM ROVINJ
depth: 28 - 42 meters
location is suitable only for advanced divers
The passenger ferry Baron Gautsch, 85 m long and 12 m wide, sank not far from Rovinj in 1914. It was on its way from Kotor to Trieste when it was destroyed by an underwater mine, taking 240 lives. The upper deck of the ferry lies at a depth of 28 m, the lower deck is at 36 m, while the bottom of the ferry is at 42 m. This well-preserved wreck is among the most beautiful in the Adriatic and offers the unique possibility of exploring the ferry's interior.

NORTHERN DALMATIA: KATEDRALA - SEVERAL UNDERWATER CAVES IN THE BAY OF SIROKA, ISLAND OF PREMUDA
depth: 5-40 meters
location is suitable for all categories, from beginners to advanced divers
Although the entire south-western coast of the island of Premuda, starting from the bay of Zaporat to the cape of Lopata, is great for diving, we recommend the Katedrala location, situated along the coast of the bay of Siroka, known for its several underwater caves with numerous crevices and cavities. The caves are connected by passages allowing you to go from one cave to the next. Due to the porous stone of the caves, daylight passing through the stone creates a magnificent play of light and shadow on the walls of the underwater chambers.

CENTRAL DALMATIA: UNDERWATER CLIFF CLOSE TO THE ISLET OF STAMBEDAR, PAKLENJACI ARCHIPELAGO NEAR THE ISLAND OF HVAR
depth: 5 - 45 meters
location is suitable for all categories, from beginners to advanced divers
Stambedar is an islet belonging to the Paklenjaci archipelago and lies near the island of Hvar. Stambedar is interesting for divers due to the fabulous underwater cliff that begins at the depth of 5 m and drops to the depth of 45 m. At greater depths there is a large number of red and purple gorgonias and rich underwater fauna: numerous fish, algae, snails and sea-urchins.

SOUTHERN DALMATIA: MERCHANT SHIPWRECK TARANTO, DUBROVNIK
depth: 23-55 meters
location is suitable only for advanced divers
The ship Taranto sank close to Dubrovnik in 1943. It was destroyed by a mine left by the Allies. Therefore scattered cargo and motor parts can be found around the well-preserved wreck. The boat itself was halfed, its stern partly sank into the sandy seabed, while the bow lies on an underwater cliff at a 45 degree angle. An added attraction to the location are the 2 groupers and several schools of fish that made the shipwreck their home.
