PotápěníOstrov Pag > Pag
Pag's bay is suitable and safe for diving, especially in its shallow and middle parts. Sea currencies are not strong and there are no great oscillations in the sea temperature. However, diving is not recommended at the exit of the bay of Pag because of the strong currencies and no shelter in the case of a storm. The bottom of the bay of Pag is mostly sandy, but there are some stone cuttings in its middle part called "pošte". It is a name for the fishing spots. The underwater landscape along the shore is so intriguing that it offers a special experience to divers. There are many recesses, holes and even small caves that are interesting to the lovers of the underwater photography. During summer, several diving schools operate in Pag. Namely, diving in the bay of Pag, as much as safe, can be dangerous for the inexperienced. On the west side of the bay of Pag there are many sorts of clams. Penn-shell is one of them but it is strictly forbidden to take it out. It is a pearl-shell which can grow up to one meter.
The submarine world of Caska is another interesting place for the divers because it is possible to see some parts of the submerged town. We recommend diving in the cove Slana to the experienced divers because of very attractive sea bed, full of unusual shapes, picturesque rocks, grown into high sea grass, small caves and a bigger one which should not be entered without an experienced diver. Everyone who wishes to practice diving in the bay of Pag requires a special permit that can be obtained at the Harbour master's office. Scuba diving with a spear fishing gun is not permitted.
