Overview

We invite you to embark upon an adventure that will reveal all the underwater beauty, the abundance and diversity of its plant and animal life, as well as its multitude of underwater walls and reefs, caves and shipwrecks. Pula, the centre of the Istrian county, is a 3000 year old town known for its amphitheatre and a great number of valuable Roman monuments and also for its hospitable people, interesting cultural events and fine cuisine, beautiful nature, clean sea and even more marvellous underwater world. Diving centre Pula is located in Tehnomont marina Veruda, Pjescana uvala in Pula. Scuba diving is a particularly developed and attractive sport in Pula, owing to the richly indented coast and wonderful submarine spaces, rich flora and fauna, reefs, caves, as well as to the remains of sunken ships. Branislav and Jagoda Danevski are instructors and your professional guidance for different diving activities. The centre offers discovery diving, recreational diving, cave diving, deep sea diving, wreck diving, diving courses (for all category from junior to instructor). Diving locations along the coast are located 5 to 20 minutes from the centre, and 30 to 60 minutes if it's a ship wreck, where the max depth is 45 meters. All the prices are very convenient. The centre is also open to additional negotiations with organizers of diver groups. Diving in Pula is possible all year round due to favourable sea temperatures and especially between the months of April and November. We are proud to announce that Diving Pula is the only centre in all of Croatia with a licensed course director and instructor with active statuses in the HSA. Working with disabled people is one of the major activities of the centre - to improve the quality of life and health through diving programmes.

I had 2 good dives. Lost my fin 3 times on the first time but the guide helped me calm and collected to reattach it. Very experienced guides. Dove through some caves. Dives were according to the level of the group. It was fun.
