- ABOUT THE SPOT
Scuba Diving in Lucice Cave, Brac Island, Croatia
Favored by the Mediterranean climate, Brac Island has long and hot dry summers with an average temperature of 25°C/ 77°F and mild and short winters with an average temperature of 10°C/ 50°F. Since summer temperatures hold until the end of September, the island is the perfect destination for those who enjoy water-sports and the sparkling sun.
There are many places available for scuba diving on the island and one of the best and most interesting spots is the Lucice Cave, approached only by boat from Milna harbor. This underwater cave has two entrances, where the first has a 3 m/9.8 ft long diameter opening and the second one a respective 6 m/19.6 ft long.
The cave descents vertically down at 25 m/82 ft and once you reach the bottom, there are two cone tunnels with a maximum opening of 2 m/6.5 ft long, extending up to 47 m/154 ft long. Lucice Cave has interesting marine biology with many fish and corals to admire. If you wish to enter the lower tunnels, note that they are out of the range of daylight, so torches and reels are necessary.
It is best to book an organized tour or a local guide who will take you directly to the diving spot at the entrance of the cave. If you are not experienced with cave diving, it is best not to enter in the lower tunnels.
