We were in Kastela in September, and my son (19) wanted to try diving. The weather was a bit unsettled, for the few days my son was here, with rain and thunderstorms, but Ivica organised everything perfect. My son was soo happy with his first dive (first experience is so important), so he wants to do more next time he is here in Croatia.
Here what my son said"I went diving with Ivica who was extremely friendly and explained what we would be doing and what the purpose of each equipment piece was. He clearly knew what he was talking about which made me feel confident and less scared. As this was my first lesson we went to shallow water (max 10 meters) and he always made sure that I was feeling okay underwater. The boat we used to take us to the island was new and pretty fast which was great. Once there he gave me enough time to get used to breathing with the equipment and to learn how to achieve neutral buoyancy. All the equipment we used looked quite new and unused and worked flawlessly. We even got to see a really pretty jellyfish which was quite cool. Overall, the experience was outstanding and Ivica is a great instructor. I would highly recommend this centre for any newcomers who are willing to try out diving for the first time."
So overall experience is : Ivica, the instructor, is very friendly, helpful, knowledgeable.
The equipment is new, or almost new, very well looked after, in perfect working condition. The boat as well.
Highly recommended for new divers, and as its PADI certified, for more experienced divers as well.

The diving experience was excellent. The instructor try to explain the basic teory in easy way, so somebody who doesn't speak english could also understand it, which was really heplfull because of my dad.
Under water we again recapitulated the teory and because we have many beginers in the group the instructor try to explain them how to don't panic or how to stay right under the water, which as I can say was really profesional.
In the end I just to say, that we (me and dad) really enjoyed this diving and we're looking forward to try it again next time.

We had a great time diving with Venus, they were very accommodating and came and picked us up in the marina in downtown split and took us to a great dive site with a wreck, wall to swim next to, etc.

With such a whistle stop tour of Croatia we wanted to cram in as much as possible. After only booking online the night before we managed to dive the following day at 1000hrs. We were collected by our dive instructor and as a group of novices we were given excellent tuition.

Overall really good set of shore dives with a small group it was really interactive. Would definitely recommend a visit to Venus Diving Center if you fancy trying the sport for the first time or if you are a seasoned diver.

We were bit nervous about our first diving but Josko was an amazingly competent teacher. They are super funny and perfectly professional at the same time. I can only recommend these guys for everyone who looks for an adventure or a good time in Split.

Thanks to Josko and team for 2 great dives. We're returning to diving after many years away and introducing our kids (10 and 13) with try dives. DCV offered us what we wanted. First dive was in front of the centre, probably 3m max! Second dive from the boat on the far side of Ciovo was perfect, Josko found us octopus and a seahorse as well as the shoals of fish and plenty of starfish. On the way back we came across a group of dolphins.

The team was very nice and that's the most important I think. Not many things to see under the water. What makes me not give 5/5 is that the guide destroyed the house of a squid and took it in his hands to show us. It was very frightened and that was not good. Take care not to do things like that and everything will be perfect ! Thank you.
