Come visit our beautiful Dive Center located in Podstine Bay, just a short walk from Hvar town. If you've always wanted to try Scuba Diving or are interested in seeing what the Adriatic Sea has to offer, look no further than Viking Diving Center. We run two daily dive excursions for those who already have their certification and can certify new divers completing courses through either PADI or SSI. For those wanting to dive on nitrox, we also have you covered. The water conditions are on the colder side (16-24 degrees, seasonally depending) and most sites have a depth of 50m+. For this reason, those divers who have less than 40 logged dives or haven't been diving in the previous 6 months are required to do a refresh dive by the shopfront (because at Viking Diving safety comes first)! But don't be disappointed, as this is a beautiful shore dive with undulating rocky outcrops and an excellent chance of seeing both octopus and cuttlefish - a perfect way to get back in the water. Peak summer periods (July - September) sees the shop become very busy, however winter diving is just as good, if not better. We also cater for groups and clubs keen on trying the 15+ local sites, all within a short boat ride of the shop. Viking Diving has a highly professional Instructor team and uniquely for Croatian Diving Centers, a Hyperbaric and Medical Doctor. We are open from the 1st of March until the 15th of December so come join us in exploring the underwater world of Hvar!

I was concerned about the cold weather at first, but the manager there gave me a semi-dry suit to make the dive more enjoyable. The water is so crystal clear with great visibility. However, as expected there isnt much fish or sea life to see....More
