DESCRIPTION OF THE DIVE
Eco dive is a shallow dive around the island Kalebinjak in front of village Rogoznica. Dive starts usually on west side of the island and goes counter clockwise around the island. East side of the island is the most interesting. There are big boulders (rocks) between which you can glide while slowly drifting in current. Under each rock, you will see something move. Different schools of small fish are everywhere. As you round the island, you will be back under the dive boat.
