Marine Conservation in Croatia

Marine Conservation in Croatia

Participating in the marine conservation project in Split means committing to cleaning the seabed and combating pollution to protect marine species.

Like all of our environmental project programs. The program is open to beginners with no diving experience; a scuba diving course is included before engaging in marine conservation activities. The program fee covers the cost of training, full scuba gear, and supervision by an experienced scuba instructor. All participants earn an internationally recognized SSI (Scuba Schools International) dive certification.

Courses range from Scuba Diver to Open Water Diver, and specialties such as marine ecology and fish identification. The project works with a local diving school, all activities are supervised by an experienced diving instructor.

The goal of this project is the protection of the seabed, the development of thriving ecosystems and a clean coastline – all in collaboration with conscious and inspired local communities.

Thanks to this project, I was able to get my diving license and learn more about pollution. I recommend this project for the diving experience. We really become aware of our impact right down to the seabed. I was very well supported by the Freepackers team.
