“Dubrovnik”

GPS: 43°04′N 17°04′E

Approximately two and a half hours by boat from Tučepi, between the island Hvar and the peninsula Pelješac, lies the wreck of the steamboat Dubrovnik.

The ship operated during WW I under the flag of the Austro-Hungarian Empire as a passenger’s ship.

In the morning of May 9, 1916 it was hit by two torpedoes of a French U-boat operating under Italian flag.

It sank almost immediately, causing the death of 11 people. 27 people could be saved.

The ship, with a length of 51m, had a cargo hold of 480 tons.

The bottom of the wreck lies upright on its keel at a depth of 56m. The two torpedoes caused the ship to now rest in two parts on the bottom of the sea.

These two parts are well preserved and make for an interesting dive.

Due to the depth, the wreck is ideal for technical dives, such as Rebreather or Entry-Level-Trimix.

The best time to dive to the Dubrovnik is from April to May and from September to October.
