If you literally jumped off the quay by diving center Blue Planet, you’d land on the house reef. In fact, one of the reasons diving center Blue Planet is located in front of the Hotel Dubrovnik Palace is the beauty and diversity of the underwater world on the house reef. You’ve heard of four seasons in one day, well, this reef is four sea beds in one dive.
Located between the mainland and the Grebeni islands, the “Little Africa” reef ranges in depth from 10 metres to 40 metres and has something for every scuba diver. A sandy bottom, where fish parade up and down, gives the opportunity to take excellent photos. A rocky reef with a cave and its many openings, sea bed covered with seaweed where fish live and feed, ancient amphorae fragments, Little Africa has it all.
Thanks to the shallow water and geographical position, the currents have a positive impact on the rich marine life in the reef. Little Africa is known for a wide array of species such as lobsters, scorpion fish, moray eels, tuna, octopus and a whole kaleidoscope of smaller fish. You’ll have the feeling that you’re on an African savannah safari, just underwater. Little Africa is one of the most interesting house reefs in Europe and the ideal base for diving center Blue Planet.
