We dived on Blitvenica the farthest island of Murter archipelago .. Something beautiful 🙂
Until two years ago, divers who would come to Murter had nothing to offer except the magical beauties of the underwater world. Milan Colić and its divers at the Diving Center Tramonto say that the local depths are becoming more demanding for demanding divers and marine explorers.
“Until recently, they dived only on the underwater walls, amazed by intact natural beauty, rocks, flora and fauna. It has two years to apply it and diving here becomes all the more exciting and exciting – says Colić.
It is about shipwrecks that were unknown to the time or known only in the most extensive part of the public. It was discovered by Francesca de Rimini, the full load of mine sunk in 1944, the Gladijator F98 was shot down in 1941, the Junker JU 87 aircraft “Ptuk” sunk in 1941 and Borak, a cargo ship sunk by the stormy south of 1999, became the main destination for diving expeditions from the island.
“I was a kid when Borak was sunk. Everyone was talking about it, and we kids in Tisno watched as the sea breeze carries the palette with it – says Colić who drives the divers today to the wreck of Borka.
These are wolves positioned at depths of over 45 meters, which was why they were not wasted and why it was so long to be found. Colić makes it clear that he and the team of Tramonta Fashion are still on the sidelines of such a significant discovery.
“We have information and a possible position of another sunken warship in a position close to the island of Murter, but for now it is too early to talk about what it is. It is a wreck from the First or Second World War that is at a greater depth and we are only preparing for more serious dives. We will try to identify it, and only when we can talk about some discovery, “says Colić, not wanting to find out at this stage.
Over the weekend, a diving course with Rebreather was held. We dived on the wreck of the Gladiator ship and due to poor weather conditions dive into the wreck of the ship Borak was postponed. Members are club members Nova sub Kamnik.
All our tanks (48 units) passed a hydrostatic test, cleaned from inside and 20 tanks are painted from outside. Out tanks are serviced by „Pirotehnik“ from Split. Otherwise hydrostatic test certificate valid for 5 years and every 2.5 years is required visual attestation, in our business never exceeds specified limits just for the safety of our divers.
DC Tramonto is on the way to become a “Technical Center” which means to be educated and logistically equipped to support technical divers in the demanding deep dives. Mostly we dive on wrecks of warships in the depths of 40m and up to 80 m and more. In the last year we found three “new” wreck in our local waters deeper than In cooperation with Novasub TXR team and instructor Dule Orehek in Slovenia we organized the Advanced Decompression and NORMOXIC Trimix course in our diving center. We were diving on the wreck Borak with TRIMIX Tx 20/30 at a depth of 60 m and the wreck Gladiator F98 on 53m with Tx 21/11 with Nitrox 40 and Nx 80 as “deco gas”. We dived on Francesca da Rimini with the air as a “back gas” at 46m and Nx Nx 40 and 80 for decompression. After we done excellent dive we set new ropes and buoys to Borak and Gladiator . The next step and our new goal is to get Trimix mixer for mixing gases for future dives.
Our boats are serviced and ready for new adventures!
