Taranto

Dubrovnik

If you are heading to the Eastern Mediterranean this summer, Croatia has a wealth of diving sites rich with the history of the area — from sea beds littered with wrecks to underwater lakes and museums. Rachael Steele, _of specialist charter brokers Charterworld.com, a company that organises bespoke superyacht vacations, discovers that there is something for beginners and advanced divers alike — and all with crystal clarity down to a depth of 40 metres. _

It’s difficult to choose just 11 sites to visit from the hundreds on offer in the Dalmatian Islands alone, but these choice locations are both beautiful and unique in what they offer to those on a luxury cruise to the Adriatic.

1. Taranto, Dubrovnik

If you haven't already visited this UNESCO World Heritage Site, your next charter holiday presents the perfect opportunity to round off a dive amongst a shipwreck with a stroll around the historic streets of this walled city.

Just a short distance off the coast, the wreck of transport ship Taranto, which sank after hitting a mine in 1943 while carrying flour and tractors, will prove an interesting site for advanced divers who will discover that octopuses, lobsters, and cardinal fish have taken up residence inside. The wreck lies at 10 metres in the shallows to 52 metres at its deepest.
