Has anybody dived in Crotia and got any recommendations or more important places not to go?

I see there is a previous thread but this is from a crotia dive operator and i would like to hear from divers who have dived in Crotia.

Reason for my request is i have a group of 6 divers interested in visiting Crotia to dive and we are struggling to find the best places to go. Any advice gratefully received.

Thanks

I just came back from diving in Croatia with my Wife. We went to Vela Luka on the island of Korcula.

It was a very mediocre experience - although the water is outstanding. The dive sites are interesting geography but the marine life is sparse.

We went with CroatiaDivers.com. They were expensive and left having spent more than we planned and felt somewhat nickle-and-dimed. We hired their equipment which was tired and old.

If you want to dive this area - take your own kit and just buy the minimum dive trip from them (boat ride, air and local dive guide).

Ive dived in Porec albeit in 1977 & found it to be boring, not brilliant viz & authorities wanted to see our diving permits when they saw us night diving. (this may now be different) Also we were searched on the way out of the country in our minibus as they thought we were smuggling amphora. The rules may be laxer now but the sea wont have changed

Hi,

have been recently diving in croatia. Dived with doplhindivers from biograd (small city close to Zadar). Diving is anyway expensive in croatia, but they offer good value for the money. Bring your own gear to safe some money. Can recommend the trip to the national reservior Cornati. It is on once per week! There you can dive a wall full of marine life. Very impressive: Lobster, etc

German run basis, good boat, funny guides, specially the head of the crew Andy. Safety is important for them!

My buddy and I went diving with Dolphin Divers too this spring (April). Andy and Feda (the people who run the center) are wonderful teachers who we both learn a lot from. The vis when we were there was good, and there was lots to look at... spiney lobsters, loads of octopus and fish. Water temperature when we were there was about 16oC... either a drysuit or a semidry is the way forward there. I totally agree about the national parks, well worth the extra couple of euros. Good clean dive boat, with a good skipper. Food on board is included in the dive price and all really tasty, home made by Feda. An all round good dive experience.... we will be going again.
