The Admiral ship ‘Vis’ is set to become the first ship intentionally sunk in Croatia to become a diving attraction…
For years destinations around the world have attracted ‘diving tourists’ in this way, and now Croatia will have its first ‘intentional’ shipwreck attraction. Until now laws in the country prevented this procedure from happening.
The planned location is close to Cape Kamenjak on the Istrian coast, a place which is considered one of the most attractive places for diving on the coast. ‘Vis’ will be an attraction where beginners, who have a licence to dive between 18-20 metres, can visit.
‘Vis’ was a ship owned by Tito and was purchased by an Istrian businessman in 2002.
