An UW Photographer's Guide to Croatia

The Dalmatian coast, which makes up the middle part of Croatia’s 1.000 mile long coastline, is well known for its beautiful scenery, pleasant Mediterranean climate and hundreds of dazzling islands.

Truly, the best way to experience this Croatian paradise is to set sail by liveaboard to discover the underwater highlights.

Croatia is most of all known for excellent wide-angle opportunities. The visibility (often up to 100 feet) gives great opportunity to shoot reefscapes, and the lack of particles in the water mostly makes positioning the strobes a relatively easy task.

Even though Croatia is first and foremost a wide-angle destination, the macro life was surprisingly good. Octopus could be found on almost every dive!

The reefs are rocky and mostly covered in grey-green algae until you reach about 60 feet meters, and it is below this depth you will begin to find the really good, colorful wide-angle stuff.

Most dive sites have a drop-off and a steep wall going down to 120 feet, so watch your depth and time.

Refreshingly different

Setting sail from the town of Zadar, the Vranjak is an almost brand-new 90-foot steel liveaboard that brings divers to discover the highlights of the Adriatic Sea.

The trip is a refreshingly different experience: Not only do you get to dive the best spots like those in the Kornati Islands National Park, the liveaboard also stays overnight in picturesque little villages, giving you the chance to sample the local culture and cuisine.
