Except for its rich material heritage, the island of Krk is famous for some unique elements of its scenery painted in two colours specific to the region – green and blue. The blue asset of the island of Krk, the sea, has been closely connected with the life on the island since ancient times.  While the sea has often given itself selflessly to the man, the man has usually taken away from it. However, we should not forget that the man has also often given the most valuable things in his possession to the sea, including his own life. So, in addition to exploring and enjoying the “green” part of our region, take a glimpse at, explore and experience the deepest shade of blue – the underwater world. You can learn basic diving skills or improve the existing ones in two diving centres in Šilo.

The Modrulj diving centre offers organisation of diving courses, excursions, equipment for rent, special weekend promotions (in the low season) and a special attraction – a night diving on a shipwreck. It also organises accommodation for all its clients.

The Neptun diving centre is fully equipped for organizing diving excursions and courses, as well as for carrying out trainings for all types of technical diving. It also offers accommodation and the divers are transported to the most attractive locations by fast, modern boats.

Among a number of locations attractive to both professional divers and the recreational ones, one stands out in particular, the one that best illustrates the saying “the sea gives, the sea takes”.

At the dawn of 8th January 1968, after fighting a violent wind storm and the waves the whole night, a Greek motor ship “Peltastis” sank to the depth of 33 metres off the coast of Šilo. The ship had been previously loaded with timber in a port nearby Senj and had set sail to Crikvenica. The anchors that the captain had thrown into the sea, hoping that they would save the ship from the hurricane-force bora wind, fell on the sandy sea bed and Peltastis soon followed them to the bottom. Only four out of twelve crew members survived. The “Peltastis” shipwreck (also known as “The Greek”) is one of the most attractive diving destinations, and the anchor that was taken out of the wreck is a silent witness of one of the greatest maritime disasters in the recent history of the Adriatic.
