About scuba diving in Slovenia

Slovenia is located in Central Europe and shares borders with Italy on the west, Austria on the north, Hungary on the east and Croatia on the south. There are 3 international airports in Slovenia, and Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport in central Slovenia is the busiest. The country offers lots of attractions, some of them include Postojna, Vilenica, Škocjan Caves, more than 100 castles, Julian Alps with picturesque Lake Bled and Soča Valley, as well as the nation’s highest peak, Mount Triglav. Want to know everything about scuba diving in Slovenia? We can help. According to experienced scuba divers, the sea between Piran and Strunjan is the best diving area because of some great underwater landscapes and a wide variety of marine life populating these waters. The marine life of Slovenia includes squid, octopus, seahorses, conger eels, lobsters and plenty of other creatures. The list of popular dive sites includes some good wrecks from the Second World War, such as Maona Rossa (depth 21m/68ft) and Kec (depth 24m/78ft) as well as Fiesa reef and Punta reef. Scuba diving is also possible in Slovenian rivers, lakes and especially in the Lake Bohinj, Sava Bohinjka River and Lake Bled, which is especially great for novice divers. Under the surface of Lake Bled divers will discover a mysterious underwater world of freshwater animals (18 different fish species as well as crayfish and shell-fish) and diverse water plants. The visibility of the lake is inconstant, the bed of Lake Bled is muddy, while its banks are rockier. Cave diving is also a popular sport (more suitable for advanced divers), that can be done in Postojna, Skocjan and in the tunnel at Wild Lake. Diving courses are available in several coastal towns and in swimming pool complexes around Slovenia. Average water visibility stays around 15m/49ft.
