Liveaboard diving in
This dive site is also known as the S-57 Schnellboot. The German S 57 torpedo boat is one of the most well-known shipwrecks in the Adriatic. It lies off the north coast of the Pelješac Peninsula. One of the main attractions is the ship’s anti-aircraft gun, still intact and with a functional mount. Two torpedo openings are visible on the bow and the bridge is well preserved. The ship’s interior is also visible: the engine room and three engines. The wreck is a national protected site and can only be visited through an authorized dive center.
When To Go Diving
