22. - 26. Mai 2008

Triggerfish Diving planned a trip to Trogir at the end of May for the long weekend.

The weather forecast was bad for the whole weekend and it did rain continuously for the first 400 km. Around Split it was a bit cloudy but with relatively long periods of sunshine. It only rained once for a very short while. We left Graz at Midnight, and we had surprisingly little traffic on the way. The reason is probably the hightoll road fees on the Croatian motorways – it costs 26 Euro from the Slovenian-Croatian boarder via Zagreb to Split ca. 500km).

After driving 6,5 hours and a coffee stop we arrived in the romantic 2000 year old town of Trogir and immediately had breakfast. After that we searched for the Trogir Diving Center and checked into our room.

The first dive was then at 10 o’clock - from the beach in front of the dive base to the wreck of the „Bratislava”.

That evening the whole group went into the old town of Trogir. There we ate well in the middle of the medieval charm of the town. It was however relatively expensive.

The following two days we had breakfast at the diving base and then onto the boat for our dives. Lunch was in a fishing village not far from the dive sites. After the second dive we returned to the dive base. After stowing our gear and a quick shower it was off to supper. During our first supper there, Roman had his Divers Initiation which is a good laugh for everyone except for the initiated. I’d just completed my 500th dive which I also celebrated a bit.

Sunday was for most people the departure date. The Pachers and us wanted to avoid the stress of the mass holiday traffic and stayed a day longer. Since it was cloudy in the morning, we cancelled the dives and made a cultural day out of it in Split Split is an old roman town and the visit was worth the effort.

On Monday it was finally the day to return home. On the way we made a pitstop at the Krka National Park bay. There we had a great view over the protected harbour.
