good diving, good equipment, not exceptional

as for the diving spots, they were ok, nothing exceptional, which is quite normal in the mediterranean, but seemed that there was no effort to show something special. instructors... read more

Great centre and very well equipped my boyfriend and I did a intro drive which was good fun! I'm a nervous diver but Anita was patient and helped me through. We saw some interesting life and Anita even recorded it for us on our recorder. We would defiantly recommend and my boyfriend is now booked in for his PADI

As was my first dive, everyone was great! Nice and friendly people, they explained everything and I had a great time under water. If I'll be back in Hvar, I'll definitely do the license course with them!

Unfortunately I didn't have a good experience. I tried to book a refresh Course and one day (2 dives) tour. As they are always overbooked because the other company (the Sirena Diving Center) doesn't have a good marketing. People always look only for Viking. Well, because their overbooked the girl tried to convice me to pay the one day tour... More

Knowledgeable, professional and friendly staff really added to our diving experience. Dive trips were well planned and organised with the instructors pointing out micro aquatic life which I would missed. They also offer PADI Pro discount, a great added bonus.

Great spot to do a lot of different types of dives. Even when I was alone I was taken by the owner to super spot.

OK dive center with OK prices. They are somewhat hard to find. The viz was stunning, but there is not a lot to see.

My wife and I did our open water dives 1 and 2 will Viking and we couldn't have been happier. We stayed along the coast which was great for us as we do not have much experience but our instructor was amazing, she made it easy to get through all of our exercises that were required so we could get...

Unfortunately, I only had limited time to squeeze in 1 dive in Hvar, but even knowing that, & despite only having less experienced divers signed up for that particular dive, Viking went out of their way to pick a fantastic dive site based on what I wanted to see & do, and sent me on what was essentially a private...

as for the diving spots, they were ok, nothing exceptional, which is quite normal in the mediterranean, but seemed that there was no effort to show something special. instructors and guides seemed professional, same for the gear. good place to get your dives, maybe private tours are more special. the standard ones are quite standard.

My boyfriend and I went scuba diving for the first time with Viking Diving centre and I would recommend it to any other first time divers. Once in the water, I was overcome with unforeseen nerves about breathing underwater and our diving instructor couldn't have been more patient with me and helping me to get over the panic. I then...
