For diving in Croatia a permit has to be purchased?

The small diving permit for Croatia was abolished a few years ago. So if you want to go diving with us (diving center), there is no need to buy a permit anymore.
For individual diving a permit still has to be bought from the port authority (without diving center connection).

Do I need a medical certificate for diving?

It is always better, to be examined by a doctor, before diving. He can provide you a certificate of diving fitness, which is valid up to 2 years until the age of 40, then valid for 1 year. If you cannot manage to go to the doctor before your diving holidays, you can alternatively fill the self-statement with medical questions. But in this case, you have to answer every questions with „NO“ (= completely healthy). Here you can find the forms to be printed: (Download: Medical statement)

Do I need a dive accident insurance?

In Croatia, since the end of 2009, just as in most other European countries, a compulsory insurance for diving is necessary. Often several additional health insurances or insurances from the diving club cover scuba diving. In case you do not have an insurance, you can easily become a member of AQUA MED on site with us.

Can I rent equipment in the dive center?

Yes! We have modern equipment of various well-known manufacturers in all sizes for rent. Even children and oversize equipment is available.
Here you can find the information and prices for the equipment rental.

I have not so much diving experience. Do you offer dive sites which are suitable for me?

Our reef dive sites are perfect for not so experienced divers. You are welcome to dive with one of our dive guides, just let us know at place.
Also, most of our dive sites, we reach by boat, are suitable for all levels of experience. We anchor in a quiet cove, where there is just a few meters of depth under the boat. Then you can do your dive according to your level of experience and as deep as your certification allows, of course, if you wish, in a guided group.

Are your dive sites suitable for children?

We have a lot of kids with Jr. OWD diving with us. Our reef dive sites are ideal for children and young people who are not yet allowed to dive so deep.
Our boats always are anchored in a sheltered bay. From there we start the dives and depending on the level of training diving just as deep as the certification allows, e.g. for the kids max. 12 meters. Even at max. 12 meters you can discover plenty of things at our dive sites!

I travel alone. Can I have a dive buddy with you?

Definitely we will find a suitable dive buddy for you. You are welcome as well to dive with one of our dive guides or in a guided group.

Non-divers and snorklers can join your boat trips as well?

Yes, non-divers and snorkelers can join our day trips. The day trip for non-divers or snorkelers costs EUR 20,– per person, if necessary plus EUR 5,– for the snorkel equipment.

What kind of tanks and connections you have for rent?

Most of our tanks are long 12 liter steel tanks, all with DIN connector. Among them are also some tanks with double valve for the connection of two first stages. For our divers who need a lot of air, we can as well provide 15 liter tanks. And even small tanks for our kids we have available for rent.

What kind of suit do you recommend for the dives with you?

We recommend you a 5 to 7 mm wet or semi-dry suit with hood. Ideal would be a two-parter with vest, then, according to your needs, you can dive with or without vest.
