About Nautilus Diving Center
Our Diving Center is located in the heart of marina in Jezera, only 20m far from the place where our boats start off - that's why loading and unloading of the diving equipment proceeds in a very fast way.

The water temperature is from 18 C in May to 23 C in July –Sep. The clearness of water is from 20 m. in May up to 50 m. It depend on weather conditions.

I haven’t dived for many years but I wanted to give my teenagers an experience snorkeling other than what the shore could give. We found a company so professional and helpful and interesting in giving us a nice experience that we came back. This time for a try dive. The team went all the way to make the kids feel safe (and they were,since safety is very high on the agent) The Pongo dive center can be highly recommended. I will definitely start diving again

We spent with this diving centre unforgettable 10 days. Everything was organised very well. Divers were grouped according to their experience (5-6 divers in one group). Diving was from the ship, which was very comfortable. We were lucky to see most famous sites and even visited the reserve. Apart from diving, Nautilus organises airport transfers, offers comfortable apartments and arranges parties for divers. All in all, the atmosphere was very friendly.

I did 7 dives with the NAUTILUS crew in the end of June and I had a great time. The crew is very friendly and experienced. The dives were all from a boat and the divers were divided in groups with one instructor. You always had a buddy to dive with. The dive sites were also really nice and the briefings were detailed with information about the depth, sea life, things to see etc. I don't share the same experience as the negative reviews and I would definetly recommend diving with the NAUTILUS Crew. We'll definetly come back and explore the beautiful dive sites they have to offer.

I have been diving all around the world ( Indonesia, Thailand Australia, Honduras , Philippines... ) and I have Never dived with a so unprofessional dive center! First of all they are very hard to join and it is hard to talk with them to see possibilities and booking. We went anyways to dive with them. We were supposed to see a wreck at 42meters. The briefing was the worst I never got basically the only informations we got were let's go down 40 m see the wreck and go up ... well okay I am definitely not a scared diver so who cares let's go... but once down at 40 m, no wreck... the dive masters were completely lost and had no idea where it was... we went a bit up after we looked for it and then well had a very uninteresting dive. The second dive , my buddy got lost... it can be sometimes hard to recognize someone when everyone has gloves and hoody he went with the wrong group. The dive master never noticed he was gone... and I told him I missed my buddy he basically didn't care and told me to continue the dive ... well with more than 200 dives I know that is not what you do... so I went slowly up to meet my buddy at the surface and finished the dive alone with him. The dive master noticed only once we were on the boat that he actually missed 2 divers ... well I could keep going but I guess you got my point ! Don't go with them!!!!!

Given the conditions it runs very smooth. Dive shop is about half mile from the ship ( on the other side of the bay), staff transports tanks and dive gear from the shop to the ship and back by minivan... while we take pleasant walk, even in the afternoon sun, everyone washes his own gear, the staff takes care of drying and storing it overnight). Everyone helps move the stuff from the van to the boat and vice versa, although it was not either expected or requested. All gas mixes available. There are sometimes too many non divers on boat ( divers families, friends) , but there is plenty of space separated from divers area. I did not mind having these people on board. They did not interfere with dive preparations and post diving. Crew takes care of this and makes sure that non divers take splash when all divers are out. The ship itself ,Tomisa, is fishing ship, adapted to accomodate about 60 divers. Used for diving during the summer, fishing in winters.Even when it was fully loaded, there was still enough place for everyone. The groups are split as per expirience of divers. Dive planning is very good. Briefings are very detailed, in polish and english or croatian. Majority of divers on my trip were Poles.. only few of us needed briefing in croatian or English. When diving you are on your own with your buddy , as it should be. I was lucky to have Andrey Bizyukin as buddy on this trip. The ship is very comfortable.. for me probably the best from all. I would always prefer big slow stable fishing boat than sleek fast boats... the rides are little bit longer but nice People pays buck to have excursions like this. My wife is non diver and she had fun being there. Crew is very friendly, funny and very helpful. Drop off was very precise. Never missed any wreck or walls. All sites are within hour or two from the village. Dive sites are first class.. the wrecks are amazing.... walls are so full of life.... Deco stops are so interesting.. so much small tings to explore and find. Of course you do not expect Red Sea , Cozumel or Hawaii... My favorites is definitely BACVICA and LUMBARDA walls. All this and we did not even make to to Kornati National park, due to strong wind. And at the end, few words about Jakub Kuba. From the first contact via mail maybe 6 months prior to the trip to Jezera, it was very easy to stay in touch and arrange everything. Kuba is such good guy.. I wish I could dive more with him, but he also has to run the shop... and spend more time with trainees and intro dives. Will go there again.. the whole Kornati are still to be explored.
