Snorkelling in Croatia

Whether you’re staying on one of our boats or at one of our hand-picked hotels, there’s some great snorkelling on offer in Croatia.

We would be happy help advise on the best option(s) for you.

Staying on a boat – All our boats have snorkelling gear aboard and the skippers know all the best spots to drop anchor and give you as much time as you want to snorkel around.

Staying in a hotel – If you would rather stay in a hotel and head off snorkelling from there, we would recommend staying at

Hotel Odisej – Mljet island

Adriana Hvar – Hvar island

Hotel Odisej is located on the beautiful little island of Mljet and offers fabulous snorkelling straight from the shore; plus the opportunity of heading out on boat excursions to discover more remote snorkelling sites.  Time magazine once named Mljet one of the 10 most beautiful islands in the world, and legendary underwater explorer Jacques Cousteau loved it here.

Alternatively, if you prefer the smarter Adriana Hvar, there’s some basic snorkelling from their beach club but, but if you want to experience something rather more special, we would suggest booking yourself in for a snorkelling day tour (approx. €65).  You get picked up from the hotel and whisked off by boat to some great spots.  Particularly good is the Kabal peninsula on the north west side of the island with its numerous fingers of land jutting out in to the sea and the boat enables quick movement from one snorkeling spot to another while enjoying the beautiful coastlines of Hvar island and Brac Island.

In addition to snorkelling and exploring the shores of these two islands, this full day excursion leaves you with enough time for sunbathing and relaxing on the beach. The excursion is suitable for all ages (including children over 8 years old).  Snorkelling equipment is provided.

There are also various great snorkelling locations around Dubrovnik.
