    Hi Octo-Danny!

    It is possible to dive there, somebody did it in the last summer. The biggest problem is the vis which is very low.
    I think some ruins of the old port and town of Tomis can be seen around. However i am not aware of any dive operator in close to the Balck Sea.
    If you are really interested please contact me and I will give you more details.

    Hi Danny! When choosing Romania, consider also RESPIRO Dive Center (respiro@respirodiving.ro): wreck diving, cave diving, certification courses, equipment shop etc.

    If you need more info about the Black Sea or Romania diving just ask!

    Wow Ramairo, that must have been cool, did you dive there, I mean in Isverna in the Apuseni Mountains? How do you get to the Apuseni Mountains to dive in Isverna, do you use a route planner or would a primary school geography book be just enough to get you to the right mountains ?
