We are very happy that you had good time with us. Marin is good instructor with very good approach to his students. If you liked it, keep on diving and think about doing a course one day.

The service was very helpful. The only downside was the price 150hrk per hour for kayak rental when in other towns we've seen prices around 70hrk per hour (150 for 4h).

Really good organized center and several nice sights, a bit crowded and not so personal treatment. We would have liked to know the name of the guide and some better debriefings.
