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.
Dear divers, sSpring is almost here and it means we are coming back to our favorite enviroment – underwater world.
After the winter break we recommend a „refresh dive“ to make some exercise and return to dive routine. For those who want to become divers we will organize beginner courses so all you need is just contact us in the inbox or via www.divetramonto.com
We are ready for new adventures and fun…
Looking foward to see you again!
Your Tramonto Team
Diving training and diving equipment are important factors in the safty of every diver therefore every diving gear must be maintained and regularly serviced. Diving center „Tramonto“ became an authorized partner of MARES LAB which means that we are educated to detect and repair any kind of damage on your diving gear.
Diving Center Tramonto has some innovations for a new season. To make our diving trips more comfortable, safer and faster here is a brand new outboard engine Honda 250hp. For our proffesional work here is a new water pump Honda WB 30TX max. Flow 1100liters per minute wich is used for pumping sunken vessels.
Francesca da Rimini is cargo warship, built in 1942 in Rijeka, under Italian ownership. The length is 42m, width 12m, with a total weight of 281 tons. It was seized by the German Navy in 1943 and used to transport weapons for German troops. After arriving from North Africa, on 3/22/1944, it was anchored because of engine failurenear by island Kaprije, in the Sibenik archipelago. It was spotted by two British “Spitfire” bombers, torpedoed at the rear right side and sank. It lies at a depth of between 38m – 50m. Of 3 masts, 2 lie broken in the sand and the third standing upright and rises up to 28 meters. At the stern is the anti-aircraft machine gun and all over the wreck are hundreds of mines and scattered boxes of ammo. Of fish species, that found home on the wreck, there are numerous lobsters, groupers and the occasional eel and amberjack. Dentexes regularly circulate and observe each new visitor. The dive is intended for experienced divers only.
Diving center Tramonto received it’s concession permit for diving on wreck plane Junker Ju 87 ‘Stuka’ from World War II which was found south of the island of Žirje.
This aircraft type Ju 87R-2 is popularly called “pike”. It is an Italian Air Force plane which was probably shot down by cannon fire by air defense from the Kingdom of Yugoslavia in April 1941. The wreck is in good condition and the front part of the fuselage, wings and tail of the aircraft are connected and complete. It has no engine, and the assumption is that it tore upon impact with the water. The value of this finding is certainly exceptional in world terms, since there were only 5709 aircraft produced at that time. There are only two of this type preserved in the world, in museum exhibitions in London and Chicago.
It lies at a depth of 28m and its available to all advanced divers.
Length of aircraft: 11m
It is armed with bombs (500 kg), two fixed machine guns 7,9 mm MG17 in the wings and a movable machine gun MG15 7.9 millimeters in the rear cabin.
