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 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.

Whilst reading previous reviews, I came across your argument "In our country,we have strict rules and we follow Padi standards and procedures." That is DEFINITELY not true! I turned up and they just started giving me stuff to gear up and get ready. They asked me 'what level are you? How many dives have you done?' But at no point did anyone check my certification or care about there being any validity in what I said. The dive centre in Dubrovnik I did some diving with the following week were much stricter about checking my card! FAR worse, they didnt ever ask me to fill in the official PADI medical form. I just turned up, did some diving and left. They have no real record of me diving or any of my details at all!!! Thankfully it was all okay, but I have to answer yes to one of the medical questions so I have to get my doctor to sign a copy of the form before I go away to say that my condition doesnt affect my suitability to dive. It is a lifelong condition with daily medication and Venus had no idea! Again, in Dubrovnik, the centre took a photocopy of the form my doctor signed before allowing me to dive. This has always been the case everywhere I've been diving. I was shocked and appalled that neither my certification OR my medical details were checked. Absolutely disgraceful safety standards.

I don't know why you need to tell all these untruths about us. I guess only you know the reason. We have no intention of arguing with you there. We are sorry that you are not satisfied with the level of our service although we strive to provide the best in every way. Fortunately for you, after your review , our competition will be happy to host you and provide you the best service. :) We wish you many successful and happy dives. We would recommend that you heal and dive healthy because it is not very common to go diving unhealthy or less capable and shift the responsibility to the diving organizers. Regarding your diving qualifications and health status, you have been checked 3 times; 1. When you have booked and paid for diving at our place for booking in Split 2.After arriving at the diving center 3. On a diving boat before diving when forming buddy teams Greetings
