Diving and snorkelling

Go diving in the rich and diverse sea around Murter and explore the mysterious depths at some of the finest diving points of the mid-Adriatic.

The sea surrounding Murter is suitable for everyone, be they beginners or experienced divers. All coves of Murter are good for taking a walk under the sea, but adventurers looking for something special can visit Colentum, the archaeological site whose outer parts are submerged in the sea. Several diving centres operate in Murter, organising diving courses, offering scuba tank filling, equipment rental, as well as organising diving excursions.
