In the Vis sea basin there are six sunken ships from different historic periods, for the ancient times to the II World War. Accompanied by professional experienced diving instructors one can see sunken boats, dive among red and yellow gorgoneia, discover the secrets of ancient wrecks and get to know numerous caves. Blue cave is the most beautiful one and is often called the pearl of the Adriatic with its light effects and beautiful blue and silver colors.
On the island of Vis there is 250 flying days around the year because of the mild Mediterranean climate and natural formation of the mountains which makes the island a perfect location for paragliding.
Once you reach heights, view is unbelievable and the flight can last for hours. Gliding over the crystal blue sea, natural formations of the island rocky coastlines, secluded beaches, natural vegetation and vineyards that spread for miles are breath taking, something that will remain in your memory forever.
There are seven starting positions on the island from all directions so there is not so called "wrong starting point" unless wind is so strong that create dangerous conditions. But strong wind is unlikely to appear because the wind arriving from Finland through Velebit mountains lost strength and created perfect conditions for the paragliding on the island of Vis.
