Diving in Kvarner Bay

Quick facts

Kvarner Bay is an excellent outlet into the Adriatic Sea, gorgeous blue and crystal clear. The rocky coastline drops down to form fascinating formations, and shipwrecks lie quietly at the bottom of the gulf.

Several favorite shipwrecks are the Lina, an Italian Merchant Ship, the TA 36, a destroyer, and the Peltastis, a Greek cargo ship. Technical divers will feel right at home, here. The ships scattered throughout this region all have fascinating stories to tell, so delve deep into the history to get the fullest experience.

Dive sites are scattered all along the coastline and out around the islands in the bay. Plic Tenki is a favorite site, a tremendous wall dive that also boasts some impressive rock pinnacles. The wall itself is home to an abundance of fish and gorgonians, and you’ll want to come back to explore again and again.

What to see

In shallower reefs and near gorgonians you can find all types of small marine life like seahorses and small octopi. Lobsters peer out from outcroppings and scorpion fish hide themselves on the textured rocks.

Shipwrecks make excellent homes for conger eels and sole, and large schools of tuna make frequent appearances.
