Rated 2.3, 3 votes

The most popular and best known wrecks in probably all of Croatia is the Baron Gautsch.

Pula

 
 
 
 
 
Rated 2.3, 3 votes

Pula is a large town on the southwestern side of Istria. Its city center is not as historically important as many other towns around Istria, but some sights are well worth exploring. There is a huge and beautiful Roman Amphitheatre or Roman Coliseum, nicknamed the Arena, where plays and concerts are often held. Other attractions are the Triumphal Arch of Sergius (Golden Gate), the temple of Augustus, the Gate of Hercules and the remains of an old 14th century castle. There are also city walls, t...

Paulina Wreck

 
 
 
 
 
Rated 2.3, 3 votes

The wreck Paulina was an English merchandize boat that sank about 150 years ago in a lagoon not far away from Hvar Town. The first part of the dive is a field of sea grass (Posidonia) giving shelter to tiny sea-creatures. A sandy seabed slopes slowly down to 30 m of depth, a grave for an old wooden boat coated by yellow sponges....

Amphoras, RT Rakovica

 
 
 
 
 
Rated 1.7, 3 votes

The main characteristic of Amfore Rt Rakovica are the many pieces of amphoras you will repeatedly stumble upon while searching the ocean floor. Amphoras are the remains of the ancient Roman foundering. All unbroken amphoras have been taken out in the early 70-ies and stored in the Archeological Museum of Pula, but you can still see many big pieces of broken amphoras that have been left behind. Except amphora's, most time is spent by the very interesting wall starting at 12 meters up to 30 meters...

Old Battleship

 
 
 
 
 
Rated 1.0, 2 votes

About the history of this Old Battleship wreck isn't known much: it is discovered in the middle of 80-ties by a diver Sergia Gobba and members of Vis diving club. Because of a military embargo for diving in that area, it stayed untouched, what is relatively rare for such a wreck. During an investigation by the Institute for Monuments and Culture Protection, it became known that the wreck used to be a war sailing ship from the start of the 19th century. Supposedly, the ship was destroyed during a...

Frasker

 
 
 
 
 
Rated 1.0, 2 votes

On the west side of the island Frašker is a nice and easy dive site often drift dived in the direction of the current. Although not particularly necessary, drift diving is more relaxed and you can explore more ground. Once you end your dive, you will notice that the boat has followed the group and that you can easily exit the water. This reef is very interesting, because of its wall and reefs, which make 2-3 steps, 15 meters, 18-20 meters and then to more than 20 meters. The walls are all...

Rated 1.0, 2 votes

The Draga is a 25 meter long and 6 meter wide sand dredger used for taking out sand from the bottom of the sea, which was sunk in the sixties.

From the permanent inhabitants, the most common are eels, scorpion fish, lobster, crab-fish and cat-sharks. A lot of penatula (kind of soft coral) can be found around the wreck. The wreck is safe and appropriat...
