You get slightly amateurish feeling that shows in details (such as crew's gear forgotten on shore, status of air valves not checked when preparing to jump off the boat etc).However, the staff are friendly and they try their best. Note that there are no depth gauges in their gear (not that they were common in Croatia). Note also that divers... More

It used to be quite a nice dive center, but since this year the management has changed and it went south pretty quick. They charge premium prices for mediocre service and poor guiding. "Full Gear rental" does not include a depth gauge (or computer), that's extra. So how is it full gear if you're missing one of the most basic... More

I am an Open Water Diver with less than 10 dives. So first dive was done at the House Reef, followed by a Boat dive. The team is very professional and dives are made under the close supervision of the dive masters.

I booked a diving through the hostel that I was staying, for a really high price. They were supposed to pick me up at the gas station near the hostel at 9am. I stayed there from 8:40 to 9:30am and went back to the hostel to know what was going on. The hostel called them and they said that there... 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.
