The island of Vis is the most famous and most attractive diving destination in Split sailing area. Yachtsmen who love spending their time diving and exploring the deep blue sea, when taking a pause from sailing, simply can´t stay away from Vis and its deep water beauties. The southern coast of Vis is famous for dozens of underground caves, so it´s only natural that it is a popular site for wreck diving enthusiasts. Many World War I and World War II naval battles were fought in these waters and many violent storms also sank ships. There are a handful of well-preserved wrecks here, within recreational limits. For more experience divers, it’s even possible to explore a wonderfully preserved American B-17 bomber, 216 feet beneath the water.
