The historic army ship “Vis” turned dive site is the first privately-owned intentionally scuttled shipwreck in the world. Preserved and in sailing condition, it was scuttled on 22nd of May 2016. in the cove “Polje” near Premantura village. Situated on the southern tip of the Istrian peninsula, it marked a new era of scuba diving in this part of the Adriatic. The wreck rests 250 meters off the coast in an excellent upright condition and lies in depths reachable to all levels of divers, 18 to 32 meters, mast to stern. Experienced divers can enter the machine room through a hole in the wreck which was deliberately planned and executed with a series of controlled explosions during the ship’s scuttling. Divers love to explore the the engine room and experience the ships great history, as well as the marine life around it.
