I did my Advanced Open Water Course (PADI) at Viking Diving Center in Hvar, over the course of 5 days. In addition my friend took the "Discover Scuba Diving" course. It was an extraordinary experience, for both of us and I highly recommend Viking Diving. This is why: The staff is very professional and friendly. The instructors take the time... More

We did 2 dives here, a small refresher and one open water dive. Staff was really friendly and helpful, the dive sites were ok, nothing spectacular but that was probably due to the fact that we were still beginners with only ~10 dives. Would recommend and dive again

Having not done much doing recently, I found the dive master to be very friendly, knowledgeable and caring about our safety. Lovely clear water and a very friendly atmosphere

We emailed the Dive Center and also popped by the day before our dive to get signed up. The first dive we did was a bit of a waste of time & money. It was around their 'house reef' which consists of a lot of long grass, nothing to see except some cuttlefish. There was another couple diving, who was... More

Viking is a charming spot located on a secluded small bay near the Hotel Podstine, one of the nicest resorts on the island. They are run by a lovely couple (he drives the boat and she handles all of the operations), along with an excellent team of experienced divers. They are all extremely professional but also friendly, hospitable, and devoted... More
