Croatia -The Trip

http://www.salfordsac.org.uk/

Another excellent Club Trip which was brilliantly arranged by Chris. It all ran like clockwork from the taxi collection at the airport to three lovely apartments five minutes from the dive boat for the nine intrepid divers. We forgive for not knowing the bar was only open at weekends next to the dive shop!

The diving was mainly scenic, fantastic vis and diving to 40m for the qualified divers. One outstanding wall in the National Park was very reminiscent of the red sea as it vanished into the depths, and for the Med even shoals of fish were  evident. Plenty of colour in the rocky face as life competes in the nutrient rich water.

A sunken dry dock provided an interesting wreck dive complete with a small yacht sat on the girders which ranged in depths from 25-38m.

Word before the trip was a drysuit was a good idea as average water temp about 20 degrees with a savage thermocline about 30m. Clearly not a problem for the skipper who dived in a vest and shorts! (What were we playing at!)

The weather was kind, the food and cold beers excellent and 12 dives flew by!

Bring on the next trip

Cheers
