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...

If you need to get a dive in or your just looking for something to do, this is a good dive center to consider. We popped in last minute and got in two dives on a Friday. Staff was professional, boat and equipment were in good working order and the dives were safe.

Myself and my friend dived with Viking today and had a great time. It was my friend's first dive so she did a taster and I went down to 10m with her. The staff were patient and explained comprehensively what to expect. This dive was just out front in an area of the sea that is roped off so no... More

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 stayed in the hotel where the dive school is situated - Hotel Podstine. We arrived on the Saturday evening, and the dive school was closed on the Sunday. However, the couple who own the dive school were about sorting some things for the following week and kindly arranged for us to dive the following day. They asked lots of... More
