Rebecca and Corey hiking in the mountainsOur adventure operators and co-owners of the Adriatic Tours business Rebecca Thomas and Corey Hawking oversee the tours and accompany you every day.

Rebecca and Corey dive, sail, raft and hike with you.  They ski and snowboard alongside you and lead the way on the bike rides.  They are there to assist you as much or as little as you like with the activities.

Rebecca and Corey are also the tour guides along with Peter and Justine on some of the tours.  We will all ensure you have a wonderful holiday both on and off the snowfields and rivers, when you climb out of your kayak, when you need to be collected at the end of your windsurfing or kite surfing session and of course after the sails come down and you are looking forward to a seafood grill and glass of wine after a day on the beautiful Adriatic.

Corey and Rebecca are both experienced adventurers.  Corey has been snowboarding for years, Rebecca is at home on the water whether paddling, diving or rafting and an experienced horse rider.  They will both take scuba diving lessons during the Australian summer.

Diving in the Adriatic Sea is a wonderful experience off Croatia and Montenegro

diving

Diving in the Adriatic Sea off the coast and around the hundreds of islands is not to be missed. Caves are a special feature as well as shipwrecks, underwater archaeological sites and a fascinating abundance of marine life.

Excellent visibility and crystal clear seas make for some spectacular underwater scenery and dives, particularly when the sun’s rays penetrate directly into caves creating some extraordinary light effects. Explore the Banjol cave including a stone tunnel near Rovinj in Istria or Odysseus’ cave on Mljet island in the South Dalmatian archipelago.

Legend says that Odysseus found shelter inside this beautiful cave when he was wandering far from Ancient Greece.

The Kornati group of islands are part of a National Park and are another favourite location for divers.  The Kornati archipelago consists of 140 islands, islets and reefs and you will find steep walls, underwater caves, crevices and passages.  Rasip Island is a haven.  Shoals of fish of numerous species will greet you at 10 to 15 metres and coral reefs and sponges at 30 metres.

A diving trip in Croatia is a wonderful experience and you can leave from Trogir

We also offer diving trips to Montenegro.  Exciting night dives are a feature.  Kotor Bay (Boka Kotorska) is the deepest fjord in Southern Europe and one of the most beautiful bays in the world.  Its deep waters are flanked by dramatic and spectacular mountains.

The bay stretches for 15 nautical miles or 28 kilometres and is dotted by numerous villages.

Sights for divers in the bay and off the coast of Montenegro include shipwrecks (old and new) including the passenger and freight ship Tihany which sank in 1908 and the military patrol ship Patrolac which sank in 1983.

The blue cavern (Plava Spilja) is quite spectacular and can be accessed from Herceg Novi.
