Scuba diving n Stari Grad.

With its pristine sea, clean beaches, hidden coves and numerous small islands nearby, Hvar is the perfect base for a water-based holiday, but what is on offer for tourists who want to go a little deeper into the Adriatic and spend a day or two scuba-diving?

Although diving centres have been in existence for more than 50 years in Croatia, there has been an explosion of interest in the last 10 years, and there are several dive centres on the island.

Nautica Hvar in Stari Grad offers a full range of diving experience. From beginners to experienced divers - even for kids, there is plenty of courses and packages to choose from. Simply contact them on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or visit their facebook site.

Experienced divers are required to present proof of their qualifications and to sign a liability release. Written permission is required from parents for divers under 18, while anyone over 45 requires a doctor's certificate.

From Croatia with Madness

Croatia Traffic Info

  • Drive carefully on the A7 motorway (15th km) in direction Zagreb between the junctions Matulji and Jušići due to a broken-down vehicle. Traffic is intensified on the roads in direction coast, in direction interior and on the roads along the coast. Sections of the roads closed due to roadworks: -the DC29 from Novi Golubovec (DC29, DC35) -the DC502 Smilčić-Pridraga state road -ŽC5042 Višnjan-Tićan. Traffic is regulated by traffic signals/one road lane is free only: -on the DC1 state road in Knin, on the section Sučević-Otrić in Otrić -on the DC1 state road on the section Jošani-Udbina-Ondić -on the state road DC2 in Vukovar, (Kudeljarska and Priljevo street) -on the state road DC66 Pula- Raša bridge -on the state road DC206 Valentinovo-Petrovsko. With the sunny and dry weather, more and more cyclists and motorists are on the roads. Other vehicles (such as cars or trucks) should look carefully for bicyclists before turning left or right, merging into bicycle lanes and opening doors next to moving traffic. Check your mirrors and be aware of blind spots before turning. While at a stop sign or red light, make a complete stop in order to let bikers pass, and check for unseen riders. Respect the right of way of bicyclists because they are entitled to share the road with you. Cyclists are not immune to traffic violations: pay attention to red lights and practice arm signaling!
