Coastal Croatia has a Mediterranean climate with temperatures averaging 24 to 26C (75 to 78F) during the summer, and 5 to 15C (41 to 59F) during the winter. Visibility averages at about 10 to 15m (33 to 50ft), with some sites offering even better visibility. Here you can find the last specimen of the Mediterranean seal along the Croatian coast and if you visit the island of Biševo you will only find 13 residents.
A historically rich country in Southeast Europe, bordering the Adriatic Sea, Croatia is called “the country of a thousand islands”. Surrounded by Slovenia and Hungary, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Montenegro, it shares a maritime border with Italy and has a wealth of dive sites offering unbeatable choice and diversity. Whether you want crystal-clear waters and amazing marine life or dramatic rocky topography, you are sure to find it as you explore the more than 1,000 islands and islets, 48 of which are inhabited. As you hope between the islands, the largest islands are Cres and Krk, while even the mainland has great dive sites.
