This tour covers mostly Zadar archipelago including islands of Premuda, Dugi otok, Kornati National Park, island of Žirje and Kaprije. It is designed primarily for scuba divers and it combines caves, wrecks and deep wall which are available in this area. What is even more important, almost all diving spots are suitable for scuba divers and they do not exceed depth limit of 40 m.
This tour definitely includes the best diving spots of North Dalmatia.
It is quite dependable on weather conditions (especially the area of island of Premuda and Dugi otok). Nevertheless, a lot of diving spots are available even when sea conditions are difficult (Kornati National Park, Kaprije or Rivanj islands).
Some of the diving spots are: Ledenik wreck near the island of Sestrunj ( 20 m), Štuka wreck near the island of Žirje (28 m), Francesca de Rimini wreck near the island of Kaprije (38 to 40 m), cave ‘’Cathedral’’ on Premuda island, Brbišnica cavern on Dugi otok, cave on the island of Mežanj, Rivanj channel, deep walls of Kornati National Park, etc.
Depending on the weather conditions, this tour can start in direction north or south of Zadar.
Because of that, it is very hard to have strict schedule.
Main priority is to cover the best diving spots and extra payment for this tour covers costs of National Park and special fees for diving on wrecks.
First day (Saturday):
After a start from Sukošan, this day is reserved for one swim-stop and further cruising toward the island of Ugljan and a place called Kukljica. Kukljica is our home port and the first day is always reserved for checkup of diving equipment, briefing and taking necessary supplies for the whole week. The ship stays overnight in Kukljica and on thesecond day (Sunday) it continues its journey towards north. There is also an option that instead of stopping at Kukljica, the ships continues cruising directly to the island of Molat. This option largely depends on the weather conditions and the time of guests’ arrival on the boat.
Second and third day (Sunday and Monday):
On Sunday we are cruising in the area of Premuda island and our main goal is to reach the island of Mali Lošinj or Unije. We are staying overnight in one of these ports, and the next day (Monday) we start our cruising towards Istria. After two dives, we are coming to the town of Pula.
Fourth day and fifth day (Tuesday and Wednesday):
These two days are reserved for diving in area north-west from the town of Pula. There are lots of diving spots and because of the open sea it is very hard to have strict time schedule. In order to reach and dive on desired locations (such as Baron Gautsch), we cooperate with local dive center that can make transfer of divers. In case of harsh sea conditions, there is always an option to visit and dive in Brijuni National Park.
Sixth day and seventh day (Thursday and Friday):
During the last two days of our journey, we are cruising back toward south-east and the area of North Dalmatia. On Friday evening we are coming back to Sukošan port and that this the end of this tour.
