Vis has very interesting history. Komiža was former pirate port and its castle and church of St.Nicholas date from 1585. The island was closed for foreign tourism as a result of the headquarters of Marshal Tito until 1989.
Vis route is very often determined by weather conditions as this island is quite isolated from the main land. This is the main reason why all our clients should be aware that captain has right to change this route due to the weather conditions.
Vis is definitely place for more experienced divers and it is specially protected area.
Due to this reason, diving is only allowed with authorized diving club. Each dive in area of island Vis costs 10 euro per diver/per dive. For this tour all our customers pay 60 euro additionally for extra fuel expenses.
Fourth day (Tuesday):

Sixth day and seventh day (Thursday and Friday):
Our customers have two possibilities. If customers are interested in night diving, the ship stays on Žirije for 2 dives and one night diving because night diving is forbidden in national park Kornati.
On Friday (seventh day), we have two dives in area of island Žirije and Žut and journey ends in port of Sukošan. The journey always ends on Friday evening in Sukošan port.
Second possibility is visiting of national park Kornati for 2 days (Thursday and Friday).
National park has several locations with beautiful underwater walls. We usually dive on dive spots Panitula,Balun, Mrtvac, Mana, Kamičiči, etc. and sleep on island Levrnaka. After diving in Kornati, ship arrives on Friday evening in marina Sukošan.
VIS TOUR is highly dependable on the weather circumstances. Island Vis is located on the open sea so sometimes south wind (jugo) and North West wind (tramontana) can create high waves and unstable weather. This kind of bad weather is not so usual but in case that we cannot dive on Vis, this tour can be replaced with South or Kornati tour.
