About Hippocampus Diving Center
Hippocampus Diving Center is located in the campsite Stoja in Pula, near the city center. If you want to explore the underwater wonders of the Istrian peninsula, Hippocampus Diving Center is the ideal starting point for diving. Join us for a diving course or dive to some of the most famous shipwrecks in the Istrian underwater, like Baron Gautsch, Vis, Submarine, Varese, Draga. If you prefer wall or tunnel diving, night diving or cave diving, then Hippocampus is again the right place for you because we have several such destinations in our offer. The center itself is surrounded by a lush pine forest and it's close to a pebble beach, ideal for beginners who want to dive for the first time or to begin a diving course (SSI, CMAS).

Hippocampus DC is really amazing: the team arrange very well all the trips to different diving sites every day, so in few days I could discovered the best spot in Stoja. The diving center is very clean and organized, and the full team is highly prepared about each diving site. All the equipments are great, every diving is super safe and I felt a familiar and friendly treatment. It's the best spot if you want discover suca diving or if you want to take your certification/specialty. I would recommend it to anyone that goes to Croatia!

A very professional and kind and friendly team of divers. We had an amazing time with them. We felt very safe in their hands and with them on the boat as they know every single part of their local coast. My two young boys loved the diving experience with them and were well looked after. Thank you again Hippocampus team!

My boyfriend and I did the open water course at hippocampus diving center. We are very pleased with the course and diving center. The diving instructor Sebastian, is a very friendly and relaxed guy. He made us feel really safe while diving and took his time explaining the things we needed to learn. During the course there was a lot of focus on diving safety, how to take care of yourself and your buddy under water. The course was a great experience for us, we had a lot of fun and fell in love with diving. After completing the course we did our first boat dive with Robi. He also made us feel very safe and took time to help us during this experience. Hippocampus is a very good, well maintained diving center. The team is very friendly and relaxed. We would definitely recommend going here, if you want to go diving.

Highly competent Dive Masters, the gang at Hippocampus made me and my 13- and 15 year-old daughters feel safe as they took us through the Try Scuba and Open Water Diver courses. The women and men on the team are fun, welcoming and worthy of trust. They also offer dives for experienced divers, such as night dives and wreck dives. SSI accredited - equivalent to PADI . Two Dive Shops, one in Pula and one in the BiVillage camp site at Fazana where we and our mates dived from.

We were lucky to enjoy four days of diving with Robi and his team, and it was a brilliant, fun and relaxing experience. The dive centre is well run, organised, professional and above all there's no stress during the day. The briefings given are informative, the dive sites are varied and interesting (our favourite was the four tunnels), and there never seemed to be any rush. Each of the dives from the boat were in excess of 50 minutes, and the pace under the water was very mellow. As the dive centre is located in the campsite, and as there is a generous break between the dives, means that you can grab a drink or snack very easily. We're hoping to return next year and see if we can spot the elusive seahorse!
