To visit the Kornati and not see the submarine world... Qualified autonomous divers are in a privileged position: they can enjoy all the things that are the reason why this place is a national park.

We recommend to others, without diving qualifications, that they take a diving mask and snorkel, and then take a peek into the blue deeps of the clear Kornati waters. You can see a lot of memorable things, even from the surface.
You don't need a licence for snorkelling (diving without autonomous diving equipment). However, a diving expedition with scuba gear can be done only in organised and approved groups, and only if organised by a person or an agency authorised for such activities. The person or the agency must have a contract to organise and guide diving groups with the Kornati National Park.

This is the list of the diving centres who have entered into such contracts with the Park in 2018:
