Croatia Sea Life

You can see some fascinating coral in these waters. Rare black coral clings to Svetac, and reefs can be found around many of the islands. There is plenty of wacky macro life to see, as well. Nudibranchs are common, as well as shrimps, crabs and massive starfish. Seahorses, Zeus Faber (John Dory), conger eels, tuna, scorpion fish, octopus, lobster and sole are fun to find. Plus, the array of odd worms will blow you away.

While seeing a massive creature is rare, there is still a chance you will run into a huge amberjack or a dusky grouper and maybe even a bottlenose dolphin.

How to Get There

Dubrovnik (DBV), Split (SPU) and Zadar (ZAD) are the major airports. Once in the country, get around via bus. If you buy your tickets at the tisak, or news stand, you will get a discounted price.
