    Hi, I'm traveling to Bled, Slovenia for all of June, and there's a big lake that I thought might be fun to dive. Has anyone here ever been diving in Lake Golf? Looks pretty cool from pic I've seen online. There are two dive shops with websites - wondering if anyone has any experience with either.

    One makes the diving sound awful - :: 3glav Adventures :: ~ AMAZING SCUBA DIVING ~ Bled, Slovenia :)

    But the other makes it sound better - Diving in Slovenia - Bled - Dive center

    Both sites are written in very broken English which makes each pretty charming, imho. I wonder how the first one stays in business... :)

    Bled…
    Didn't know people dive there, that place is famous in Italy it's very well worth a visit even without diving
    @matjaz
    May I ask which is the best time in the year to dive in lake Bled, especially for the visibility? I would say full winter with a drysuit when the algae are dead, like in the lakes of northern Italy...Anyway if you have any suggestions on the time of the year and the specific divespot, I am listening
    Thanks

    When you are there for a while, I´d recommend to inform yourself about diving the rivers. There are some shops that offer guided diving tours in the rivers of Slovenia.

    Diving in the rivers is dangerous, at least in Italy/Ticino like in the Val Verzasca ("Italian" Switzerland)
    Would consider that but I am not sure it's a good idea. In Italy / Val Verzasca it's good to dive only with people who really know the place and have a long experience on site
    Do you recommend any trusted diving for the rivers in Slovenia?

    If you spend a whole month I would also recommend to go to Piran.
    a) it is a beautiful city on the coast
    b) you can dive there as well for some dives in the mediterranean.

    And of course, since it is a beautiful country there a lots of other things to do and enjoy, especially if you are into outdoor activities.
