The turquoise blue Adriatic Sea is one of the cleanest seas in the world and the treasures held in its depths are varied and rich. Squeezed between the shores of Italy and Croatia the Adriatic Sea is compact but includes some of the best diving sites in the world.
The Croatian Adriatic Sea coastline has been treasured for centuries, for its Mediterranean climate, its clear waters and stunning natural beauty. With more than a thousand islands dotted along the rugged coast and breathtaking natural beauty, God was having a good day when he created the Adriatic Sea in Croatia. In particular the Adriatic Sea around the Dubrovnik region is one of the cleanest in Europe and thanks to its unique and turbulent history has a wealth of underwater gems. There are more than 7,000 species of flora and fauna, many of them native to the Adriatic Sea, and a plethora of fish and marine animals. As your scuba mask slides below the surface you’ll be immediately “greeted” by friendly fish, dive a little deeper and you’ll come across even more inhabitants of this underwater paradise. And as the sea is so transparent you can see for up to sixty metres at times, that’s what's called a room with a view. The seabed is dotted with shipwrecks, coral reefs, hidden caves and remnants of past civilisations, if you look carefully you might even see an octopus or two.
Throughout the warmer summer months the Adriatic Sea ranges in temperature between 21 and 25 degrees Celsius, in other words it's ideal for scuba diving. From beginners to the most accomplished scuba divers the Adriatic Sea has something for you.
