Diving Sites

Generally, there is a good variety or marine life typically consisting of: scorpian, damsels, wrasses, bream, gobies etc with plenty of colourful sponges, both soft and hard corals, various species of Nudibranchia and lots of Urchins spiny and otherwise.

The following is a small selection of the sites available. 

Wreck of the 'Boca'

After running aground on Pelješac in the Bay of Zaliv Trstenica in 1984 the wreck of the ‘Boca’ now lies in shallow water with the bows in 5 m and under the stern at 12 m. The wreck although it has been salvaged, there is still plenty to see with the two propellers, main and spare, with large sections intact, enabling some swim throughs. With an abundance and variety of marine life colonising this artificial reef.

Wreck of the ‘Garda'

An old steamship sunk on the south side of the island makes up the wreck of the ‘Garda’. Lies in 23 m on a sandy seabed making this a very light dive. The wreck is now very flat, but hiding a good variety of marine life under the plates and is well worth a rummage.

Point Kneže

A sloping wall of rocks with some recognizable pieces of terracotta amphora leading into a small sandy bay with a vertical wall and a very colourful cavern. Look out for the ‘Silver Rain’.
