Hausriff Cres

At the dive site in the water, there is a captivating overgrown rock formation extending from 5m to a depth of 37m. This area is particularly suitable for beginner and student divers to practice their skills in a safe closed-off section. It's recommended to dive here until 11:15 during high season due to increased boat traffic beyond the barrier.

Divers can expect to encounter a diverse array of marine life including monkfish, golden oarfish, bream, scorpion fish, petrale, herring king, lobster, gurnard, octopus, conger, and with a bit of luck, seahorses and rays.

With the entrance to the water right in front of the base, divers can quickly and easily explore the captivating underwater world.
